New Free Dining Deal for Some September, November and December Dates

By Dave Shute

Today, Walt Disney World released a free dining offer covering arrivals September 1 through September 18, November 17 through November 27, and December 8 through December 23.

At the values, only the Art of Animation Family Suites are available in September, and All-Star Movies and the Little Mermaid rooms at Art of Animation are excluded in the November and December dates. Free dining at the values means the Quick Service plan.

At the moderates, the two Port Orleans resorts are excluded. Free dining at the moderates means the Quick Service plan.

All the deluxes are in all dates.

At the Disney Vacation Club resorts, the Villas at the Grand Floridian and Bay Lake Tower are excluded.

At both the deluxes and the DVC resorts, free dining means the regular dining plan.

There’s more here on the Disney website.

A room rate deal came out today too.  Smaller groups in more expensive resorts may do better with it, and it has many more eligible dates.  See it here.

The long-time travel agent partner of this site, Kelly, can try to book you into one of these deals after she’s taken care of her current customers. Contact her using the form below. Availability is limited so contact her now!

Dave! thanks for the heads-up, our family was able to book a quick September trip at WDW staying at Art of Animation. We have 4 day Park Hopper+ Tickets. We’re repeat visitors and have read through much of the great research and analysis you’ve shared online! Still the late decision to book, extra EMH, etc., etc., kinda hurts our heads for planning! ha!

We’re checking in very late Fri. 9/13 and have to check out Wed. 9/18t

So far we’re thinking:

Sat 9/14-Typhoon Lagoon (never been, the kids 16/12 seem psyched) unsure about evening plans…Disney Springs?, fireworks at Magic Kingdom…?
Sun. 9/15 Magic Kingdom till MNSSHP early close, then maybe park-hop to?Epcot? for Illuminations?
Mon. 9/16 Epcot in the morning, then maybe park-hop to Hollywood Studios? or vice-versa?
Tues. 9/17 Animal Kingdom in the morning, resort pool/nap afternoon, then attend MNSSHP, arrive by 4 p.m.
Wed. 9/18 check out

Thanks for any feedback!
