Free Disney Dining Plan
One of the most popular deals and plans is Disney’s Free Dining Plan. This is an offer included to guests who pay full price for the Magic Your Way packages (which is purchasing full price rooms and park tickets).
This seems too good to be true, how does it work? With the Disney Dining Plan, you are purchasing a certain number of meals ahead of time using a credit system. For every night you stay, each guest on your reservation receives an allotment of different types of meals.
This ranges from quick-service meals all the way to table service. The number of which varies depending on your package and nightly stays.
This dining plan is ideal for larger parties in a single room or if the party has children. Don’t be slow to book though! Popular dates and resorts book up fast for this discount. If you want to see what all the fuss is about, be sure to jump on car parking.
Often a hidden gem, PIN codes are well-loved by Disney enthusiasts who love to find a good deal. They’re only sent to a select few and the offers are often better than the deals available to the general public.
Although the secrets to becoming a recipient of these exclusive pin codes are pretty secretive, there’s a good amount of information out there on how to wiggle your way into the club.
With absurdly good deals, you’ll be sure to be fine with putting in some extra detective work.
Stay, Play, Dine & Stay
Generally, this is a winter release deal for those who like to travel early in the following year. It’s additional bundle savings on the already beloved Magic Your Way vacation package. There are not many specifics but the savings can be up to $600 for a family of four!
There are ~50% off savings in the Disney Dining Plan and although it can be hit or miss at times, it’s a popular choice for the potential of additional savings.
Annual Passholder Offer
If you’re an annual passholder, you’re in luck. You’ll get better room-only discounts than the general public. It’s also good to check for specific changing deals; right now annual passholders get 10% off food and beverages!
Although it may not seem like much, these rotating deals and offers add up!

Deals are constantly shifting so be sure to check for more specific deals and discounts.
Foreign & Association Discounts
Similar to military offers, Foreign & Association discounts are mainly for guests from overseas. They can receive 30-40% off rooms plus Free Disney Dining Plan. These deals are only available through foreign travel agents and tend to be better than deals given to people from the U.S.
If you’re coming from another country and looking to get in on the Disney fun, be sure to look into this deal.
Authorized Walt Disney World Ticket Seller Discounts
Although they’re limited, there are a handful of third parties that are authorized by Disney World to sell tickets at a discount. For the most part, the savings aren’t incredibly impressive but the results vary widely depending on where you buy and the type of ticket.
It can be a great find if there is a well discounted authorized ticket but keep in mind, there are a lot of scammers ready to sell you something fake. Always check to make sure the tickets are authorized. Generally, if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.
If you don’t qualify for a Florida Resident or Military discount, this is a good deal for you.
