I don't have any idea if I am posting this in the right place but...

Are the free dinning promotions offered to vacation club owners, and if so, can folks (me!) who buy the points through a site like David's take advantage of free dining?

For the first time eve, we will be traveling to Disney during one of the rumored free dining promotions.

Thanks in advance for any clarification!

I've not been to WDW in several years, but in the past free dining was NOT offered to DVC renters or owners. You could however, purchase the dining plan thru your DVC owner in the past. I hope this helps until someone more knowledgeable comes along.

In order to get free dining, you need to book directly with Disney and pay rack (non discounted) rates for the hotel and tickets.

    Free Dining always has a catch. Have to stay at specific resorts, at specific times, and book directly through Disney. Never been available to DVC Members that I am aware of.

    And the tickets you must buy - for every person staying in the room (same ticket for everyone) - has in the past been 2 day hopper minimum.

    You still need to buy the minimum 2 day park hopper even if you have an annual pass.

    We did and used the park hoppers as credit to renew our passes.

    How do you purchase the Disney Dining Plan if you're renting DVC points? Thank you.
    The member you are renting the points off needs to book the dining plan. I have done it for someone else in the past, they provided credit card No. and exp date. I then book through member services with the renters credit card No.

    I do not take paypal for dining plan as I would lose out with paypal fees.
