Free Dining for General Public May 7?

By Dave Shute

Two different sources have told me that while September Free Dining will open for Disney Visa on May 21, Free Dining offers will open to the general public on May 7, not May 5 as many–including me!–have forecast.

I have a friend who works for AAA. Will he get likely get the Free Meal Plan announcement on the earlier date (5/1)?

Jeff, the early release is only for Disney Visa, and will be coming out today (May 2). Everyone else gets access–we think!–May 7.

Hi! Thanks for all the work u do to keep this site up to date. My question: If I rent a Wilderness Studio DEC from a member for 11/9 to 11/15, can I get the free dining plan. I am bringing my grandkids to Disney and trying to get the best accommodations at the best price. Thanks much.

No, Mary, you can’t. DVC visits using points aren’t eligible for the deal.
