While we (not-so-patiently) wait for it to come back, there is a small sliver of good news — Disney has announced a DIFFERENT dining offer will be available soon! We heard this offer was on the way, and now it’s officially here — we’re sharing all the details and info you need to know about the new Dining Promo Card deal for Disney World.
If you book a minimum 5-night stay at a Disney World Resort with at least 4-days of tickets, you could be eligible to get a Dining Promo Card. Sometimes you can still get the offer with fewer nights, so we’d call Disney and ask. Disney did something similar to this for select guests last year, and we’ve also seen Quick Service Dining Cards in the past as well.
This expanded offer is available to book beginning today, January 5th, and only applies to trips booked for arrival dates between July 1st-July 10th and August 1st- September 14th, 2023. A lower dining package may be available when you book a summer package on other dates (so be sure to ask!).
Each reservation will receive one promo card via email upon checking in. The promo card can then be used like cash at select restaurants around Disney World!
The card value will be based on your vacation arrival date, number of nights you’re staying, and which hotel you choose. It’ll work similarly to a gift card, but it’ll be available digitally and will only work at restaurants.
The offer is good for up to a $750 Dining Promo Card. Here are the values based on travel dates and resorts:
- At value resorts — $35 per night if your arrival date falls from June 25th-June 30th or July 11th-31st, and $50 per night if your arrival date falls from July 1st-10th or August 1st-September 14th
- At moderate resorts — $75 per night if your arrival date falls from June 25th-June 30th or July 11th-31st, and $100 per night if your arrival date falls from July 1st-10th or August 1st-September 14th
- At deluxe resorts — $125 per night if your arrival date falls from June 25th-June 30th or July 11th-31st, and $150 per night if your arrival date falls from July 1st-10th or August 1st-September 14th
Wondering how and where you should spend that $750?! Make sure that you check out our DFB Guide to Dining. We have over a decade of Disney dining experience and have details and reviews on how to get the most of your money when dining in the parks!
Only one card will be issued per reservation, so if you’ve got a big group it might make more sense to book your rooms separately to get more Dining Promo Cards. Current reservations that fit the dates can be modified with the new offer, but keep in mind that some prices recently increased, so the modification may cost you more than it cost when you originally booked.
The Dining Promo Card will be emailed to the address of the lead guest on the reservation after check-in and will include a barcode that can be scanned at restaurants. The card can be added to Google or Apple Wallets on your phone; however, it cannot be attached to a MagicBand, MagicBand+, or MagicMobile.
The offer is available to book NOW — so if you’ve been waiting for the Disney Dining Plan to return to book a Disney World trip, this might be your best chance for a while!
Stressed about making sure you book the right room to get the $750? Worried about making reservations? There’s no need to stress! Our friends at Small World Vacations can help you book everything and their services are 100% FREE.

It is good on NEW bookings with the Dine Card or any NEW WDW package reservation valued at $3600 or more with a check-in Feb 15 – September 30, 2023. Code SWVNew23. Offer good for bookings made January 5 – 31, 2023.
