Everything you need to know about the Disney Dining Promo

Updated: Feb 19, 2023

On January 5th, 2023, Disney released a brand new promotional giveaway to stay, play, and dine at Walt Disney World in the summer months of 2023. If you have been waiting for a Disney Dining deal then NOW is the time to book your Walt Disney World vacation!! Let's dive into all the details of the new promo and how you can maximize your savings.

The Disney Dining Promo Card Giveaway is eligible to book beginning January 5th, 2023 for arrival between 6/25/2023 - 9/14/2023. Your stay at a Walt Disney World resort must be for a minimum of 4 nights and 4 days worth of theme park tickets. The value of your Disney Dining Card depends on your check-in day, length of stay, and resort category.

As you can see in the graphic above, to receive the most savings ($150 per night) you must check-in during one of the days marked in yellow (7/1 – 7/10 or 8/1 – 9/14) to a Disney Deluxe or Deluxe Villa resort. The longer you stay, the larger the amount you will receive on your Disney Dining Card. While your stay must be for at least 4 nights, no maximum amount of nights are listed in Disney's terms and conditions.

Please note: The date you check-in is the date that determines your Disney Dining Card value. For example, if you check-in on July 10th you still qualify for the higher amount of $50 per night at a Value resort, $100 per night at a Moderate resort, and $150 per night at a Deluxe or Deluxe Villa. In the same way, if you check-in on June 24th your stay does not qualify for the Disney Dining Promo Card even though the remainder of your stay is within the promo time frame. What matters is the day you check-in.

Disney Dining Promo Card FAQ's

When will we receive our Disney Dining Card after booking a qualifying package?

Once you arrive and complete check-in at your Walt Disney World resort, your Disney Dining Card will be emailed to the email address associated with the lead guest on the reservation.

Does each person staying in the same room receive their own Disney Dining Card?

No. You will receive ONE Disney Dining Card per reservation/room.

Are there exclusions to the Disney Dining Promo?

Yes. The promo is not combinable with any other offer or promo. The offer excludes the following room types: campsites, 3 bedroom villas, cabins at Copper Creek and cabins at Wilderness Lodge. Gratuities are not included. Locations unable to accept the Disney Dining Card include, but are not limited to merchandise and candy kitchens. A full list of participating locations can be found at

How will we use our Disney Dining Card?

From your email, you will present the barcode during your food and beverage transactions in participating locations to utilize the balance. You can also add the Gift Card to your Apple or Google wallet for ease of access. Similar to a gift card- your card will hold a dollar amount. Once you have spent the balance the Card will no longer work. The remaining balance will be available at the bottom of the transaction receipt or you can navigate to or call the phone number listed at the bottom of the email to check the balance of the Card.

I previously booked a Walt Disney World vacation package that meets the qualifications for the Disney Dining Promo Card listed above. Can I modify my current reservation to include the Disney Dining Card?

Yes, but keep in mind Disney ticket prices have recently increased. Any modification to your reservation will result in the new ticket prices being added to your package. You will want to be certain the savings from the Disney Dining Promo Card are more than the increased ticket prices before modifying your reservation.
