Disney World Free Dining Dates Shifted, Shortened
By Dave Shute
Those who have already booked free dining are fine, even if their dates aren’t covered any more; new bookings MUST follow the new dates.
I’ve got both the old dates and the new dates here–the old dates are slashed through,
Analysis shows that with one exception the Disney World free dining arrival dates now begin a day earlier (on Saturdays rather than Sundays) and in all cases end two days earlier, on Thursdays rather than Saturdays.
The effect is to add 9 Saturday arrival dates and subtract 20 Friday and different Saturday arrival dates, for a net reduction of 11 arrival dates.
Shifting the end of each arrival date period from Saturdays to the Thursdays two days before will make it harder for many families to take advantage of these deals during some popular weeks.
(Note: Not all of the black-out dates are popular weeks–for example, the October, early December, and early February blacked-out dates should all have low crowds.)
Again, according to AJ, if you’ve already booked, you are fine–the changed dates apply only to new bookings.
