US resident planning a February 2014 trip to Walt Disney World. What are your thoughts on them offering free dining? Or chance of getting free dining pin code sent to my email?

Dad's is free dining dead Answer


I don't know if I'm the best person to answer this question. I've been proclaiming Free Dining Dead for years. Sometimes I've been right, and sometimes I've been WRONG (sometimes just sorta wrong).

I think I've changed my mind on Free Dining. I think it's here to stay. Disney tried to kill it off this year, but the silly thing just won't die. I was shocked when Disney offered it for the first time this year (to North American guests) for September. But with the Free Dining for the Fall it looks like it will be back to stay.

Yes, I'm saying that FREE Dining will be available at Walt Disney World in 2014. Disney is already sending out PIN Codes with it for 2014. They have it for international guests. It just makes sense that it will be offered to everyone.

(That's probably why it won't happen.)

How to get a Pin Code? It's easy to register, all you have to do is go to the Disney World website and register. They might or might not send you one. There's no rhyme or reason to who gets a Pin Code and who doesn't.

So what to do now? I'd suggest you go over and let my friends at Destinations to Travel take care of your reservation. Make a reservation, and let them watch over it. If FREE Dining comes out, they'll make sure you get it. You just sit back and let them do the driving.

Dad's Bottom Line

Karen, no one (maybe not even Disney) knows if North America will be able book Free Dining at Disney World in 2014. It does look promising, but we've been wrong before.
