Last Updated: January 3rd, 2020


Here are the 2020 Free Dining dates that are currently available:

  • June 27 through June 28, 2020
  • July 5 through July 7, 2020
  • August 29 through September 8, 2020

Remember, this has to be booked by January 16th, 2020.

Good news though, all that you need to secure your Disney vacation is a $200 deposit per room.  The remaining balance is due 30 days prior to arrival.

More good news, I am a travel agent and can plan all of this out for you.   But why would you even use a travel agent?  Really quick..

Walt Disney World is nearly 40 square miles aka the two Manhattan islands and planning can get overwhelming because of the details and deadlines.  Here are some reasons:

1.It’s free 
2. It’s beneficial to have an expert helping you navigate your Disney vacation. There’s a lot to decide on like accommodations, dining reservations, FastPass, and more.
3. You never have to deal with any type of customer service as I will do all that for you.  Even if it means being on hold for hours.
4. Reservations are the biggest pro, FastPass+ and the rules to it are intense.  I will take care of everything for you.
5.  You have to pass the Disney College of Knowledge and get your “Disney Degree” to plan Disney vacations, meaning this only works when Disney travel is a passion.
