The always popular Epcot International Food & Wine Festival will be held September 28 - November 11 this year! This is a great season to go to Walt Disney World, the crowds are lower, the weather is mild, the prices of the resorts are on the lower-end, and and there are almost always discounts!
And speaking of discounts to pair with the Food & Wine Festival, currently, when you purchase at least a 3-Night non-discounted Package (room + theme park tickets), you will receive a Disney Dining Plan FREE. This offer extends through September 29, just in time to check-in for the Food & Wine Festival and use all your free Dining Plan Snack credits at the Food & Wine Festival! If you check-in by the 29th, you will receive the Free Dining Plan Offer through your entire vacation. Also keep watch for the Free Dining Plan Offer to be extended, history shows us that for the past several years Disney has had Free Dining through dates into mid-November!! Nothing is guaranteed of course, but we are hoping history will repeat itself!
