Disney World Quick Tips: How to Add Plus Dining to FREE Quick Service Dining.

When free dining came out on Monday, there was a little bit of confusion.  As you probably know, you can get free quick-service dining at the value resorts and free base dining at the moderate and deluxe resorts for stays from August 25 through September 29, 2012.

What you may not have known is that you can upgrade your dining plan to anything you want just by paying the difference between the quick-service plan and the next plan up. So if you’re staying at my beloved Pop Century Resortand you want the base plan, you’ll just pay an additional $16.55 per night for anyone ages 10 and up and just $3.03 for anyone ages 3 to 9.

Not a bad deal.



You can also upgrade from quick-service to the deluxe plan, so the promotion is quite flexible.   You’ll pay $33.98  per adult per night to upgrade from the quick-service to the deluxe dining plan and just $8.77  for kids ages 3 to 9.  The same goes for free base dining: You can upgrade to the deluxe plan as well just by paying the difference.

Bon appetit!

    We have always upgraded our free dining, hoping they extend free dining thru February 2013 so I can do it again!
