We have just started to plan our family vacation this year. With the dining plan, would it be extended to included booking now for march vacation? thanks

Hi Melinda, I doubt it, as it would have already happened…

Just booked out flight for Disney in Sep 2012….how long should we hold out to see about free dining??

Hey, it’s possible to set your reservation up so that if free dining comes out, you can switch to it. This is easiest to do if you do it with a travel agent…see the form on the right side… Otherwise, news about free dining may not come out until May or June…
