This incredible discount is back for the second time in 2019, after an earlier promotion that ended in October. Free dining at Disney World is one of the resort’s most popular discounts and will sell out QUICKLY! But beware — this popular promotion always crashes Disney servers for the first few days after it’s announced.

That means employing plenty of patience or calling a Disney travel specialist if you want to take advantage of this offer. (Why do I need a Disney Travel Specialist?)

Depending on where you book, you’ll receive a free Standard Dining Plan (for bookings at Deluxe or Deluxe Villa Resorts) or a Quick Service Dining Plan (for bookings at Value or Moderate Resort).

And of course, Disney Annual Passholders and Disney Vacation Club members should check out the room-only discounts!

Surprisingly, these discounts coincide with some of the most popular travel times to Disney World and the newly opened Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

This means you can use your free dining credits at the two seasonal food events the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival (Aug. 29 – Nov. 23, 2019) and Epcot International Festival of the Holidays (Nov. 29 – Dec. 30, 2019).

Plus, the Disney Dining plan now includes specialty and alcoholic drinks!
