Well, we weren’t expecting it this early, but Disney World just announced their Free Dining Offer for 2019! You can book now through February 10, 2019 for most dates July 5-September 30, 2019.

- Disney’s BoardWalk Inn
- Disney’s Contemporary Resort
- Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
- Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
- Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
- Disney’s Yacht Club Resort
It looks like they moved the dates up this year (typically free dining is available during the Fall) because of the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Fall 2019.
Some of the fine print – You must book a complete package (resort, tickets, dining) at the same time. Minimum stay of 4 nights (5 days) and you have to add the park hopper option to your ticket. Not all resorts are included in the promotion and the rooms that are included will go FAST.
But, before you go book that room, note that with the free dining promotion, you have to purchase a full price room. It may actually be a better deal for you to book your resort with a discount, get discounted tickets through Undercover Tourist, and purchase a dining plan separately (or pay out of pocket for dining). You’ll just have to do the math for your family!
