View Full Version : Free Dining for Military Fam Buying Salute Tickets?

Did anyone get free dining last year without having to purchase at least a 1 day ticket? I know Disney will let military families add the dining plan to their (even discounted) room only reservations if they know the families are buying the Salute tickets. So do they let you get the free dining on a room only reservation? I'd expect the room to be at rack rate and not discounted, but I'm just curious if anyone did this last year. Thanks!

No, for free dining you need to buy a ticket. Purchasing it you do not with military tickets.

No, we still had to buy 1 day tickets. However, I was able to then take those 1 day tickets to Guest Relations and use them as credit towards the purchase of the salute tickets. So it only cost me the difference to buy the 5 day w/hopper and WPM tickets.

So it kinda ended up nearly the same.
