If free dining is released for my dates how do I apply it?

Is it automatic?

I am already payed in full. Would I have to cancel and rebook?

If it is released is it limited to certain numbers?

Can you upgrade free dining to deluxe and pay the difference?

When is it forecasted for Disney to release these offers? Should I just check here everyday?

Thanks so much for your help!!
Hi and Welcome! I love your cute little Tigger!

If free dining is offered, simply call Disney/TA, and tell them you want free dining applied. Calling as soon as offer is released will help ensure that the room of your choice is available for promo. Each resort has a predetermined amount of rooms available, so it is always good to have a second room category/resort choice.

If you have already booked a package, you do not have to cancel, simply do the above. If RO was booked, then that has to be cancelled and rebooked.

Promos for fall are typically released in July or early August and hopefully we will have a leak and will give us advance notice of what the promo might be. Follow here and/or our other thread: Free Dining Extension-Oct-Dec.

Yes, you can always upgrade dining plan. Just pay the price difference.

Hope this helps. Let us know if have any more questions. Good Luck.

Oh I don't think it's soarin that would be effected. They're going to replace the film there anyway very soon, into more of a soarin over the world.

This would be something different down the line.

Hmmm, when is soon? I sure hope they don't decide to close it for our trip. So far I have not seen anyNovember refurbs. Am I missing something? When do they usually come out?

No need to worry, they would post it as a referb in advance.

Also, concerning a comment on Avatar-land....if an announcement isn't made at D23 in August, I think very likely this is a dead project.

The announcement I wouldn't be at all surprised to hear is Cars Land.

Many good signs of preperation as well. Lights Motors Action and the Backlot tour have been leaked to be going bye bye very soon. These are the things that would need to go for Cars Land to even begin to happen. So, all in all, good signs ahead.

Don't even get me started on Star Wars Land, that's a whole other discussion.

Hi Mum from Oz, My only thought for you with the upgrading to the deluxe dining plan, before you do it (if it becomes available) look to see how much food you will be eating each day, and how much time it will take away from parks and rides. Even with the regular plan, it's a lot of food! Enjoy!!

So I got an email from Disney, only to realize it was just for the current September free dining. Don't they know I'm already booked for that one? Haha oh well...

Got snail mail yesterday for FD! Multiple dates from late Aug.-Dec 22.It seems like they may be sending these to people who have"frequented"WDW,and possibly during FD in the past-says"since you've visited before...".Still think a GP offer will be coming out though,so for those still waiting,dont lose hope!!!

Guess it just goes to show all those who think you won't get anything if you are already booked. LOL

How soon, do you think, will Lights Motors Action go away? We're going to be there in August and we've never been there. We were kind of looking forward to it.

Many who have visited in the past haven't received them and at least one who has never been there did as well.
