    Free Dining- 2011?

    So I know this must have been asked before, but does anyone know if/when free dining will be announced for 2011? I am planning on visiting for about a week in December but i'm holding off for free dining.

    Thanks!

    thought early summer, like May, was when they announced the fall dining plans.

    Re: Free Dining- 2011?

    When we made our reservations for September 2011 back in December, they were offering free dining. I recently checked my deal against their "kids stay and play free" offer (we have 2 kids) and the price was within $20 of the price I received on my package that included free dining.

    The reason I mention this is keep an eye out on all deals, as you may end up saving about the same amount on another deal depending on your circumstances/number of people travelling. Keep an eye on their special offers.

    Hello!

    I got a free dining plan offer in the mail yesterday! There are two options for travel from 4/23 to 8/13:

    Option 1: free quick-service dining plan when you purchase a 5-night/5-day package and stay at a value or moderate hotel.

    Option 2: free full dining plan when you purchase a 5-night/5-day package and stay at a deluxe hotel.

    The flyer had lady and the tramp on it, so keep an eye out for it in the mail!

    Re: Free Dining- 2011?

    I got that flyer too and honestly, I'm freaking out. I've never seen them offer free dining in the summertime. I'm hoping and praying that offer doesn't change their standard offer in the fall for free dining. Plus the fall offer is usually Quick Service for Value and Regular Meal Plan for Mod on up. That's a little better than the summer plan they're currently offering. Any info, please?!

    Thanks all for the great info! Unfortunetly I didn't get a pin for the Summer free dining but I did price out the current 40% off offer and it was a great price even with the dining included. Looks like i'm booking this week!
