Walt Disney World Dining Promotion Announced!
If you're a Walt Disney World "repeat" guest - you probably remember the flexible (and valuable) Disney Dining Program. This program gave you "credits" to use. Since the reopening from COVID, Disney has been "hinting" that a dining program would return.
And that has come true - but it looks a bit different so I'll try my best to explain it!
If you book a minimum 4-night stay at a Disney World Resort with at least 4-days of tickets, you could be eligible to get a Dining Promo Card. You may remember, Disney did something similar to this for select guests last year. Disney also had Quick Service Dining Cards in the past as well (this was offered to guests staying in "Good Neighbor" hotels). Unlike THAT program, this will include more restaurants.
The offer, available to book on January 5th, only applies to trips booked for most arrival dates between June 25th, 2023, and September 14th, 2023. Once you check in, each reservation will receive one promo card via email to be spent at select restaurants around Disney World. The value of the card will be determined based on your vacation arrival date, number of nights, and which resort you choose. Basically: it works similarly to a gift card, but only at restaurants.
The offer is good for up to a $750 Dining Promo Card. Here are the values based on travel dates and resorts:
At Value Resorts — $35 per night if your arrival date falls from June 25th-June 30th or July 11th-31st, and $50 per night if your arrival date falls from July 1st-10th or August 1st-September 14th
At Moderate Resorts — $75 per night if your arrival date falls from June 25th-June 30th or July 11th-31st, and $100 per night if your arrival date falls from July 1st-10th or August 1st-September 14th
At Deluxe Resorts — $125 per night if your arrival date falls from June 25th-June 30th or July 11th-31st, and $150 per night if your arrival date falls from July 1st-10th or August 1st-September 14th
There is only one card per reservation, so if you have a large group staying in multiple hotel rooms, it would be better to book separately. Current reservations that fit the dates can be modified with the new offer, but keep in mind that some prices recently increased, so the modification may cost you more than it cost when you originally booked.
The Dining Promo Card will be emailed to the address of the lead guest on the reservation after check-in. The email will include a barcode that can be scanned at restaurants, and the card may be added to Google or Apple Wallets on your phone. However, this card cannot be attached to a MagicBand, MagicBand+, or MagicMobile. (So you won’t be able to use those devices to scan like you could with the Disney Dining Plan.)
If you’re Mobile Ordering, you may enter the number of the gift card into the My Disney Experience app to pay for your order. Whatever balance is remaining on your dining card will expire on September 30th, 2023.
