Disney’s Free Dining offer is one of the most popular vacation discount deals that Disney offers, and many people plan their vacations around this offer.

Usually, Disney’s Free Dining means all of your meals are paid for, and the only limitations are whether the package includes quick-service meals or table-service meals. The deals usually include a refillable resort mug as well.

Disney’s Free Dining offer this summer is a bit different.

Free Dining: Summer 2019

From May 28th through August 21st, guests can purchase a vacation package that includes four nights at select moderate and value resorts, a five-day ticket, and one quick-service meal per day. It’s up to you whether you choose breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and it can be different every day. Whichever time of day you can choose, you get one entrée and one beverage (most alcoholic beverages included) for the meal you choose.

The two notable differences with this free dining offer are (1) that the offer only includes one meal per day, and (2) that you don’t get the refillable resort mug.

Who says there's no such thing as a free meal? Disney is offering one free meal this summer during their Free Dining offer.

The Fine Print

Children younger than three always eat for free and do not need a plan. Children ages three to nine must choose from the children’s menu where it’s available; where it’s not available, they can choose from the regular menu. Adults can choose non-alcoholic or alcoholic beverages, but they must present valid identification.

Most value and moderate resorts are included like:

  • Disney’s All-Star Music Resort
  • Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort
  • Disney’s Pop Century Resort
  • Disney’s Art of Animation Family Suites (at the value level)
  • The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort
  • Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort

These resorts are excluded from this offer:

  • The Campsites at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort
  • Port Orleans – French Quarter
  • Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort
  • Little Mermaid Standard Rooms at Disney’s Art of Animation

This offer cannot be combined with other discounts or promotions, and it may not be the best deal. Disney is also offering room discounts up to 25% during the same time period, and Annual Passholders can save even more. There’s also a package designed just for families.
