{Travel deals} Disney's Free dining Plan has arrived! What we think about it!

FREE dining has arrived!!...

If you are reading my blog...you would know that I am obsessed with Disney! Disney obsessed since my first look at the Mouse. I am the kind of gal who still cries watching the parades and the fireworks shows. lol.

If you love Disney like me...you probably love Disney parks. We usually visit the world a few times per year. Anyone who visits quite a bit and has been on the dining plan before...WAITS each year for the FREE dining plan. It is an amazing deal! Well it is here! We thought we would share the good news with all of you Disney lovas!

What is the FREE dining plan offer?

Get a FREE dining plan when you purchase a non-discounted 5-night/6-day Magic Your Way room and ticket package at select Disney Resort hotels.
Offer valid for arrivals the following dates:
  • September 2 through September 25, 2013
The dining plan is worth purchasing and getting it FREE is of course better! It is the way to go when going to Disney. Especially if it is your first visit. It makes for a carefree vacation...no worries about purchasing meals with cash...instead you use your world card that keeps track of all of your quick take and sit down meals. You can get food that is not normally affordable. Meals at some of the 5 star restaurants within Disney world...can leave tabs of up to 400+ for a family of 4 in one sitting. With the dining plan...you can enjoy this type of sit down meal with your plan. You can also book sit down character dining which is always a blast! Not only can you use your dining plan in the parks...you can also use it in downtown Disney at participating restaurants.
Waiting to take your vacation when the FREE dining plan comes out makes sense now right? There is always one catch...when you sit down there is large tip that is suggested to pay. We usually tip according to service...it is completely up to you. Do be careful...several of the character dining restaurants put an automatic tip on your bill. When we first started out...we paid double...but caught on immediately.
Besides the Dining plan...the other fabulous thing about a Magic your way vacation at Disney...is the free transportation. You never have to worry about taking your car into the parks and paying those fees. You do not even have to rent a car. You can take the magical express from Orlando International Airport. It is fantastic and stress free. Disney parks and Resorts dish out outstanding customer service. Anything you need is met and usually with a friendly smile. You can take their bus system from any resort, park or downtown Disney. A Disney experience can't be beat. At least that is our opinion.
I have to add...it is not just the parks that make your trip fun. Something we rarely get to do is enjoy the resort we stay at. Just this past April, we decided to stay the day at the resort and see what it had to offer. We have stayed at quite a few of the resorts from value and up. This last trip we decided to just take a quick stay at the All-Star Music Resorts. It is a fun resort. We had quite a bit of fun with the giant boots! See pic below! They have so many fun activities for the kiddos daily with little prizes. There is a fantastic movie under the stars at night...you can wade in the pool while you watch the huge screen under the stars. Ready to book your vacation?!

Those are some big boots to fill! We kept imagining the giant who owned them. lol
