Free Dining offer and 2013 packages!

It's an exciting week here at Keys to the Magic travel!  After weeks (months?) of speculation and rumors - the Free dining offer has been extended from September for select dates through the remainder of the year.  If you have a Disney Visa card, we can book your trip right now - and if not, the rates will be made available to the general public on Thursday, July 12th.

The dates below are CHECK - IN dates - meaning that as long as you check in during the range below, you'll have free dining for the length of your stay (up to 14 days).  Please note that rooms are very limited (for example, at Port Orleans Riverside, the only rooms that are part of the offer are the Royal Rooms; there are no rooms available at Port Orleans French Quarter; the Little Mermaid rooms at Art of Animation are completely excluded)!

Dates available (reservations must be made by September 29):

September 30 - October 4
October 19 - November 1
November 9 - November 15
November 23 - November 29
December 10 - 13

So...what does Free dining mean exactly?  If you are staying in a value resort, you will get the Quick serve dining plan for free.  You can also pay to upgrade to either the regular or deluxe dining plan.  If you are staying at a moderate, deluxe, or deluxe villa, the regular dining plan comes free with your reservation (and you can also pay to upgrade to deluxe if you choose).  You must stay at least three nights, and you must purchase at least a two day base ticket.

If you think you might like to book, please email me today at - I can give you a good estimate of your trip costs with a confirmation on Thursday when the rates are released (unless you are a Disney Visa card holder - and we can reserve now!). 

The other big news of the week is that on Wednesday (July 11), 2013 package rates are available so you can book your trips to Walt Disney World resort through December of 2013!  To book a package, it's a $200 deposit - and your balance is due 45 days before you travel.  It's also quite easy to make payments (you can pay as little as $20 - and you can use Disney Visa reward points or even gift cards - along with all the typical methods).  AND if discounts become available for your dates (or close to your dates) I'll either make sure to apply the discount or talk to you about any flexibility you might have so you could take advantage of the dates.  For example, I have a client who is going for Thanksgiving this year with a check in date of November 17.  But, when free dining came out - with a check in date of November 15 - we talked about moving their trip back by two days.  Get this - by adding two days to their vacation - meaning it's now a 9 day trip instead of a 7 day trip - and two more days of tickets for the four people going - they saved $200!!  I like it when Disney pays you to stay longer!

Email me today so that I can plan the trip of your dreams - all at no cost to you! - and be sure to like us on facebook to be up to date on the latest offers!
