I posted last week about some of the promotions Disney has been offering their guests that really make vacationing a whole lot easier on families’ wallets. Now they’ve announced yet another great value that was originally just for Disney Visa Cardholders but has not been extended to include all guests, even if you don’t own a Disney Visa Card.

The Free Dining Plan package includes a 5 nights at a Walt Disney World resort hotel, 6 days of Walt Disney World park tickets, and lastly included for free is the Basic Disney Dining Plan. This includes 1 table-service meal, 1 counter-service meal, and 1 snack per person, per night of your vacation. Exact monetary amounts for the entire vacation will vary based on the amount of people in your family and the ages of those people, but you can check for prices here.

The Basic Disney Dining Plan consists of 1 table-service meal, 1 counter-service meal, and 1 snack per person, per night of your vacation. One of Walt Disney World’s table-service restaurants is Le Chefs de France at Epcot. In this picture, chef Paul Bocuse is shown with his grandson and Remy from Ratatouille. Diners at Le Chefs de France can meet Remy during lunch at the restaurant through September 5.

The dates pertaining to this package are August 16, 2009 – October 3, 2009. So in order for guests to have the free Dining Plan, they must vacation during that time.

***Update from July 28, 2009: Disney is now having ANOTHER great dining deal. Guests that book a 5 day/5 night stay at Walt Disney World that are visiting from October 2 through November 24, 2009, or November 29 through December 17, 2009, get select dining free if they book their trip by September 26, 2009. (Note: You may have heard that this deal was only for guests with a Disney Rewards Visa card, though that is not the case anymore!)

All in all it’s a pretty great deal, and one that I’m sure many people are glad that Disney is implementing again.
