Free Disney Dining Plan is a special offer that’s a great Walt Disney World vacation package discount. Here, we’ll cover promo info, tips for booking, historical dates, predictions & rumors for 2020 Free Dining, and answers to frequently asked questions including whether Free Dining is “worth it.” (Updated January 2, 2020.)

The good news is that Free Dining is NOW AVAILABLE for 2020. It has been released early again this year and we have the full details plus extensive commentary in our Free Dining is Now Available for 2020! post. Basic discount info & dates are also listed below here.

The bad news is that dates are incredibly limited, the promotion must be booked very quickly, and some resorts have few room options. The plus-side to this bad news is that it all makes a second wave of 2020 Free Dining much more likely.
