Room, Ticket and Free Dining for Kids Package
This amazing offer is available most nights from May 28 – March 30, 2018 and must be booked before August 1, 2018. Kids ages 3 -9 receive a free dining plan when purchasing a 3 night/3 day (or longer) non-discounted package. The package includes a room at a select Disney Resort, theme park tickets, and dining plan. Everyone in the reservation must have the same package.
Disney has traditionally offered a free dining package for everyone in the reservation at select times. In recent years, those staying at a Value or Moderate Resort receive the Disney Quick Serve Dining plan and those at a Deluxe Resort receive the Disney Dining Plan. For this current offer, kids ages 3-9 receive the same dining plan as everyone else in the reservation. All three levels of dining plan are eligible for the current offer.
A quick note: dining reservations are able to be made up to 180 days ahead of time. Some table service restaurants may already be full at the time of booking this package. Cancellations always happen though, so if you don’t get the restaurant you’re looking for, keep checking!

A Final Note
Disney’s Summer 2018 discounts are limited. If you see one you’re interested in you may want to get more information on the sooner side. You may also want to price out several different offers. Depending on the make up of your party, some offers may be better than others. For example, the free dining for kids offer works best for us because we have four kids between the ages of 3-9 and can all stay in one suite. For smaller parties, another offer might be a better deal.
