What is FREE Disney Dining and Drinks?
If you stay at a participating Resort for at least five nights, and you sort your ticket package at the time of booking, you’ll be eligible for FREE Disney Dining and Drinks. That means everyone on your booking dines for FREE during your holiday!
There are a few different FREE Disney Dining and Drinks options available in 2020 – and the packages vary, depending on where you’re staying. Here’s a quick lowdown on each package:
FREE Disney Dining Plan
For the most choice, opt for the Disney Dining Plan. You can eat at up to 100 restaurants across Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. As well as the self-service restaurants, you’ll be able to dine in the waiter-service restaurants. Take your pick from Character Dining, Dinner Shows and more. Each day, each person will get one waiter-service meal with a speciality non-alcoholic or alcoholic (21 or over) drink, one self-service meal with a drink (as above) and two selected snacks. And, of course, you get a refillable Resort Mug.
To qualify for a FREE Disney Dining Plan, all you need to do is book a package holiday for a minimum of five nights, plus Park Tickets at a Disney Deluxe Resort or selected Deluxe Villa Resort*.
FREE Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan
This plan is great for chilled-out meals and snack stops in the Parks.
