Walt Disney Resort’s very popular and limited-time promotion called FREE Dining has been extended into late Fall 2013. The FREE Dining promotion allows you and your room-mates to eat completely free with the purchase of select packages on select dates. This offer is now available for arrivals most nights between the following dates:

If you stay at a Disney Value Resort, the Quick Service Dining Plan is free and if you stay at a Disney Moderate or Deluxe Resort, the Plus Dining Plan is free. You can also upgrade from the Quick Service Dining Plan to the Plus Dining Plan for an additional $19 per adult per night and $3 per night per child. Or upgrade from the Plus Dining Plan to the Deluxe Dining Plan for an additional $45 per adult per night and $20 per night per child. Disney will require a deposit of $200 and final payment is due 45 days prior to arrival.

Note that the number of rooms allocated for this offer is extremely limited so you’ll want to make your reservations soon.

Check out some comments from Hip2Save readers who have taken advantage of this promo in the past…

I am a Disney-holic. We took advantage of free dining last time we went and I just booked for September. I have been waiting for this promotion to come back. After having done it before, I can honestly say that I can’t imagine going to Disney and paying for food again. On our last trip, we kept a running total of what we would have spent on the food……$933 for a party of 4! It is soooo worth it.

It’s the best way to go! We saved so much money, ate way too much, and weren’t concerned that our light eater didn’t finish half of her food.

Saved our family of 4 over $600 on our week-long vacation, score! :)

We took advantage of free dining in Feb. and LOVED it! Be our guest is a great restaurant for quick service – the food was good and it feels “special” for the kids. I really liked that I could say YES! on vacation and not worry about the cost of snacks.

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
