Planning a Disney Trip with a Special Diet: Group Rates and Disney Promos

We’ve been asked a lot lately about deals that’ll be going on the weekend of the Food Allergy and Celiac Convention, so today’s Friday Trip Planning post is dedicated to just that!

First, we’ve partnered with Destinations in Florida, who is offering Group Rates and room blocks especially for FACCWDW.

We highly recommend staying on site if you’re travelling in so you have easy access to the convention and the parks, free transportation, safe dining options with trained Disney chefs and kitchens, and, of course, that touch of extra magic. Really… the meals that Disney chefs will create you should be the biggest incentive!

Group rates are available, starting as low as $104.40+ tax at three different levels of resorts. The options include Disney’s Pop Century Resort (Value Resort); Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort (Moderate Resort and Host Resort for the convention); Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge (Deluxe Resort).

Booking with Destinations in Florida also gives you discounts on other perks, including park tickets. Contact them for a free quote and be sure to let them know that you are attending the Food Allergy & Celiac Convention for that extra magic.

Next, Disney is currently having a Free Dining promotion (we wrote about it here). You can get a free dining plan when you purchase a non-discounted 6-night/7-day Magic Your Way package (includes room and theme park tickets) at most of the Disney Resort hotels. The deal expires mid-September, so be sure to book before then. Destinations in Florida can help you with that, too. Note your arrival date does have to be November 20th — just to keep that in mind.

There’s also the chances you might get a personalized deal from Disney — straight to your inbox! If you create a free account, you might get a PIN code, generally with either Free Dining or a room discount attached. Odds might be in your favor, so go sign up!

And finally, we’ve launched our Personalized Trip Planning to ensure you have the most magical experience possible! Read more about that here.

Planning a Disney Trip with a Special Diet: The Disney Dining Plan (plus Free Dining!)

If you’re familiar with Disney World and their dining plan, you might already be privy to all of the details. The Disney Dining Plan is available for folks who are staying at a resort and either purchase a Magic Your Way Package, or choose to use their Disney Vacation Club points… more on both of those in a later post.

The plans offer allotted meals for each night of your stay, depending on the package you choose. There are three types: The Magic Your Way Package Plus Quick Service Dining, the Magic Your Way Package Plus Dining, and the Magic Your Way Package Plus Deluxe Dining.



In addition, at certain times each year, Disney offers deals for guests to enjoy Free Dining with their stay. They’ve recently announced the fall dates which, depending on how you plan your vacation for a trip down to the event, will overlap!

But first, more on the plans themselves:
