Free Disney Dining 2021 Speculation

Will there be a free dining offer this year? Will it be restricted? Here are our thoughts looking at the offers past history.

Free Disney Dining 2021 Speculation

As we enter 2020, people are starting to think about their 2021 Disney World holiday. 2021 is a special year because it's Magic Kingdom's 50th. Those celebrations are due to begin on October 1st, and if you paid attention to the free dining plan released last year for this year, you'll see what Disney were warming up for.

Each year the free dining offer does get reduced in some ways. Luckily us Brits do get a pretty good deal compared the free dining offer Americans get which is quite a bit more restrictive. The free dining for this 2020 (released 2019) was a little more restricted for us though, as some room types and resorts were completely excluded. What frustrated people the most about it though, is that the free dining didn't include October and beyond, which it did in previous years.

Sadly, don't expect that to change.

I said it then and I'll say it again now. That October change was Disney's way of breaking in the fact that it will be the same this year for 2021 because of the 50th anniversary celebrations are due to start on October 1st, 2021. There are quite a few people waiting and holding off their trips to be there for that.

While many people are cautiously optimistic free dining will continue, some people are coming to terms with the fact a year could arrive where it no longer gets offered. I don't think we're there yet. Cutting it off would lose too many customers from the UK, but I do think it'll gradually get more and more restricted as the years go by. The parks might be crowded, but that doesn't mean Disney are going to turn away guests it can't afford to lose. Of course, Disney being a luxury endeavour, if any economic downturn arrives, holidays are the first to get cut from people's budget, and its in those times Disney offer even better deals.

On the plus side to the 50th celebrations starting on October 1st, I think that gives hope for another year good year of free Disney dining for the first 2/3 of the year, because just like they did with offers in the summer before Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opens, they're going to want to incentivise people to come before the big celebrations begin. Otherwise it's going to be quiet summer.

The Disney free dining offer for 2021 is due to starting booking around April 2020.
