Free dining coming back?

We started to look at summer 2020 a few weeks back in early October, at that time there was free dining on offer and rooms at the moderates (our favourites), now having got leave from work sorted and found some flights I see that the free dining has disappeared (along with rooms at the moderates :-().

So, does anyone know if the free dining promo will be returning?

The trip is unaffordable without dining but I worry unless it comes back soon the airfares will have increased further and that would still make the trip unaffordable.

No it is unlikely to come back. I've never seen the UK offer come back out. They usually do some kind of other offer but not the dining offer I'm afraid.

I'd be shocked if I saw it offered again for 2020.

Sorry to echo @jackieleanne but I think it's highly unlikely the for UK DDP will be back. They started with Free DDP and $200 Disney Gift Card, then Free DDP with $100 and then finally Free DDP on its own. Several years back (2012) there was an offer after the main DDP offers that if you booked before the end of January 2013 you got free QSDP and we were able to book a July holiday for POFQ then. Haven't seen that happen since though. The US sites can have free DDP offers at different times to us but then you're tied into Magic Your Way tickets and perhaps less in the way of flights.

    Thanks for the replies, thought as much. Will now think about an alternative destination for our holidays.

    That is such a shame. Maybe postpone until the following summer. Many of the current upgrades will be open by summer 2021 for the big anniversary. We have found that flights with virgin were a good price as soon as they come on sale (about 300 days before.) Good lucI.

    Actually the starting offer was $300 gift card if you pre registered with Disney.

    In New Year you might see a stay x nights get 2 or 4 free. It’s not as good as the free dining but better than what is there now.

    If you were to spend more than normal (which is what I’m doing for my 2020 Disney holiday) then keep the money and book in Apr for 2021. It’s possible it won’t come back, but these rumours come each year but it has come back. You do then have to accept booking the hots. Without air fares, but you just pay a £200 deposit, so if jump you could get out.
