Dining plans

Has anyone heard of disney offering free dining plans in jan

Did you mean for booking in January for a later travel date? Or for travel during January?

For travel during January this deal is available:


I booked that plan for January. Did Pop Century and upgraded to dining plan instead of quick service plan. Ran the numbers using http://www.distripplanner.com/ to determine if it would be better to get room discount only and pay out of pocket for food. Based on where we were planning on eating, it was cheaper to do the stay dine package.

We are going January 16 and already got the 500 dollar deal but someone said that Disney might offer free dining plans in January

There has not been free dining in January in several years. There have been package deals called “stay, play, and dine.” The package was discounted over the normal package rate, but how the discount is arrived at was not disclosed (i.e., not clear if you paid full rack rate for room and got discounted dining plan, though that appeared to be how it worked).

There hasn’t been a general offer free dining in Janaury in a number of years. Ah, you ran into the $500 discount! There have been reports that Disney Visa may offer a better discount and rumors that split stays may get you greater than $500.
