Dad's Free Dining is Dead
Yep, I've said it before and I'll say it again (I'm right this time) Free Dining is dead. Dead. DEAD. You won't see free dining in the fall. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Let me tell you why. For 2 years, Disney has been cutting back on discounts. Free Dining has gone from whole seasons to just a few one week blocks. This leads me to believe the we've seen the end of the dining plan without paying for it.
In fact, I don't foresee a lot of discounts for the fall. I'd expect some hotel discounts in the range of 20% to 30% and even those will be very limited.
Disney has decided to make money again. (Not that they ever quit making money.) They have been talking about it for almost 2 years. It's time to move away from discounts and move on to profits.
Don't get me wrong, I like the fact that Disney makes a profit. Profit is how Disney finances new projects. The more profit in the parks, the more new projects in the parks.
Dad's Bottom Line
I've said it for almost 2 years, free dining is dead
. It's not coming back anytime soon. Hey, I've been wrong before so there's always hope.
