Does anyone have any insight if and when the free dining news will be announced?
It's impossible to know if/when Disney will release a discount and what that discount will be. Here is a link to prior year discounts and their release dates:
The current general public offer expires 3/30 so hopefully we will hear something about the next round of discounts, if there are any, within the next week.
If your in the U.K. I can confirm it's coming. We've just had a virgin quote with it included. They get advance time for the offer so it's very soon.
Thanks. I'm anxiously awaiting.
Thanks for the heads up. Any info on the dates they are currently offering for UK residents?
Not 100% on dates but we've just booked for august 18 and it's definitely included.
Thanks! We are waiting to see what dates are rumored as well so we can decide when to go.
Are you in the United States??
I called Disney to inquire about free dining. She said we are not offering it at this time. So I asked is it possible it's offered to guest outside the United States first? She said absolutely not. I wanted to yell LIAR! However I refrainEd and said thank you!
Just incase anyone may think I'm embellishing the truth here is a couple of excerpts from my confirmation...
We booked on Saturday and got free dining through Virgin Holidays (UK)
We also get $200 spending money on that deal as well incase anyone else is looking
I hope you didn't think I doubted you. I'm happy for you. Just didn't like Disney lying.
Not at all
Technically they're different promotions for different markets so they're not wrong in denying it's offered to some before others. The CM you talked to may not even be aware of promotions for UK residents.
Actually after looking at your info I see you have the free quick service plan. What I and several others are waiting for is the Dining plan that includes 1 table service 1 quick meal, snacks and refillable mugs. Thanks for sending that attachment it sure clarifies everything. Thanks again!
Not a problem, we did get the quick service one free. I think thats just the one that comes with moderate hotels. If you want to one of the deluxe hotels then you get the plan that includes the table service
The free QS is for value resorts (such as POP or AOA except the Mermaid rooms, there is one of the All Stars that don't have the free dining plan, I don't remember which one). Moderates as well as the Deluxe have free dining with TS. If you want to have TS at the value hotels that have free dining you have to pay an extra per person per night.
Not in the UK. We get no DDP included on value, QS on Moderate and TS on deluxe.
