Is Free Dining the Best Walt Disney World Deal?

There’s some debate as to whether or not Free Disney Dining is the best Walt Disney World package deal. It really depends on who you ask. Sometimes paying for the Disney Dining Plan out of pocket and taking a room discount is the better way to go.

Again, this is a good reason to book through an Authorized Disney Travel Agent as they will be able to find you the best possible value for your next Disney World vacation.
