Disney Deals: Free Dining and Concerts!
Taking time away for a vacation is exciting in itself, but when you throw in the word “free” on top of that, prospects look even better! Vacations are definitely worth paying for, but they can be costly. Disney knows the value of your dollar, so they are offering free dining plans to those who book their autumn vacations by July 10th.
Beginning from the end of August until the end of December, Walt Disney Resorts will include a complimentary dining plan when you book a “Magic Your Way” package including resort hotel and park admissions for at least a 3-night stay.
This year in order to qualify for the Disney Dining Plan (DDP), Disney-goers will also need to purchase a Park Hopper or Water Park pass, so you get the full experience. While alcoholic beverages and gratuities are not included, you will have access to Quick-Service, Deluxe, Premium, or Platinum Dining Plans. For table-service restaurants, Disney recommends you make reservations in advance, as they tend to fill up quickly.
Dining plan options encompass most of Disney’s food courts, lounges, inns, and beach resorts inside parks like Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Epcot, Downtown Disney, and Typhoon Lagoon. Some restrictions do apply, so make sure to look up all the guidelines before you purchase.
If you don’t want to wait until fall for a family vacation—or if you want both!—you can check out their room-only discounts of 20-30% starting late this summer and extending into early fall. Disney’s Epcot is hosting a “Sounds Like Summer” concert series from June to July, so be sure to catch their tribute artists featuring music of U2, Billy Joel, the Eagles, and more. (Did we mention the concert series is also FREE with purchase of park tickets?)
