Walt Disney World Magic Your Way packages with free dining plan have been released for Disney Visa cardholders only, according to Sue Pisaturo of MousePlanet sponsor Small World Vacations.
The rates are good for travel dates August 16 - October 3, and must be booked between today and June 21.
As before, the included dining plan is the Basic plan, with a discounted upgrade to the Deluxe plan. It seems that Disney has not downgraded the free plan to the Quick Service plan, as had been feared by many.
One difference, though, is that guests must be check out by October 3. There's no "arrive by October 3 and it's good for the length of your stay" as there has been in the past.
[NOTE: We are now receiving conflicting information on this point. Sue is looking into it, but if you try to make a reservation extending beyond October 3, please post in the comments section to let us know what you find!]
The free Disney Visa dining codes are:
RYI - Disney Visa Basic Dining
EEV - Disney Visa Deluxe Dining
UXQ - Disney Visa Deluxe Dining with Wine
Your deposit must be paid with a valid Disney Visa card at the time of booking. No courtesy holds are allowed for this offer.
Of course, free dining for Disney Visa cardholders generally precedes an offer to the public at large, so we wouldn't be surprised to see general availability by early next week. We'll let you know when we hear anything official.
