We are going back to Walt Disney World in January 2014 staying at Port Orleans Riverside. Any news on Free Dining?

Dad's here we go again Answer
Hi neighbor, (Dad's from right up the road in Edmond) thanks for the great question. First I have to admit, I've been wrong about Free Dining a couple of times
, but I'm pretty sure I can answer with 100% confidence about January 2014.
Free Dining is Dead, Dead, Dead for January 2014. In it's place is the new Stay, Play, Dine program
. No, Stay, Play, Dine is not Free Dining but it is a pretty good savings. You can get yours from my partners at Dreams Come True Vacations. It's worth a look.
Now as to the rest of 2014, that's a whole different story. I think it's highly unlikely, OK, I'll come right out and say it ... Free Dining is dead in 2014. Dead, Dead, DEAD!!!
But since I've been so wrong before and since the second issue of WDW Magazine
is about Dining at Disney World, I decided to go to the best source for Disney Dining rumors, my buddy Joe Black
. He's hit the last few Disney promotions on the head.
I asked Joe to give me his prediction for Free Dining in 2014 for the Dining issue of WDW Magazine
. You can find his prediction in the magazine (shameless plug). Let's just say, he's not quite on the same page with Dad's talk of burying Free Dining for good.
Dad's Bottom Line
Cindy, January is pretty well set since the promotions are out. Later in the year (after summer) there's a slight chance it might make a short return, but I'm not expecting it. (Yes, I've been wrong before.)
