    Free dining 2010 released

    Ok as we expected Disney released Free dining for 2010 here's the skinny from the mouse:

    Offer Details:
    When guests purchase a 5-night, 6-day Walt Disney Travel Company package that includes accommodations for five nights at a select Disney Moderate Resort and a 6-day Magic Your Way Base Ticket, they’ll get the Disney Dining Plan free**.


    Guests who purchase a 5-night, 6-day Magic Your Way Package with accommodations at a select Disney Value Resort get a free Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan.


    Booking and Travel Window:

    • Booking Window: May 3 – Aug. 14, 2010
    • Travel Window: Valid for stays most nights Aug. 15 – Oct. 2, 2010

    Sample Pricing:

    • $1,843 for a family of four*, staying in a standard room at a select Disney Moderate Resort. That’s like paying $77 per person, per day!
    • $1,440 for a family of four*, staying in a standard room at a select Disney Value Resort. That’s like paying $60 per person, per day!


    * Price based on 2 Adults, 1 Junior and 1 Child. The number of packages available at these rates is limited. Savings based on the non-discounted price for the same package. Tickets are for 1 theme park per day and must be used within 14 days of first use. No group rates or other discounts apply. Offer is nontransferable. Advance reservations required.


    ** Excludes gratuities and alcoholic beverages. Children ages 3-9 must order from the children’s menu if available. Some table-service restaurants may have limited or no availability at time of package purchase.


    These deals are available direct from Disney or via your Travel Agent, also note there are now 6 different offers going on at WDW (4 from DTA and 2 from Disney Visa) this may not be the best one for you money wise if you already have an AP or DV.

    Yup there are 6 going on right now, Free Dining, Summer room only, Late Summer room only, Stay and Play free, and then the 2 Disney Visa offers. That's not including the dozens of other offers from the bulk vendors, I wind up having to work quotes a dozen different ways to get the best rate for my clients right now... but we love it! It gives you a lot of options to customize the package for the client, most of us are really busy re-booking our existing bookings to add the free dining for our clients.

    TIP - If your even thinking about going, put a deposit down and book your dining NOW if you have not done so already. You can cancel everything (except for the optional trip insurance - which is non-refundable) up to 45 days out.

    Does it have to be a five night stay, or is the length flexible? I was looking to possibly do 11 nights.

    Guess they not offering the free Disney Dining plan for the Value resort this time. I remembered when I went last year and stayed at the resort I got the Free Dining Plan.

    Now it seems that you only get the free quick service plan only.

    Next time when I go I might stick to the quick service dining plan why? Because I wouldn't need to folk out a lot of money on tips.

    Go eat at Wolfgang puck express.

    and they've attached the free dining plan to a ticket purchase as well for each of your guests... bla. well that excludes APs and CMs from being able to enjoy it really since it eliminates the 1 day base ticket workaround from previous years =(

    Yes, but you can upgrade to the regular dining plan and just pay the difference!

    You must do at least 3 nights and a 2 day ticket, the maximum is 14 nights, and a 10 day ticket.

    Any idea when the Free Dining is released for Winter/Early 2011? Looking to go then, and wish those dates would open up soon!

    Off topic a bit, but I guess the WDW reservation line had a 1.5-2 hour wait this morning! I'm starting to wonder if all these discounts are a little overkill?

    My travel agent says it's a maximum of 14 nights.

    I'm doubly stoked because the Food & Wine festival starts a few days before I leave. I'll be hoarding those snack credits in order to eat my way around World Showcase.

    Yes, they are right. I made a correction. It's a 10 day ticket, and 14 Nights. Sorry!
