Savvy budget travelers know one of the best times to hit the big three theme parks in Orlando: Walt Disney World, SeaWorld and Universal, is right after the kids go back to school. Hotel prices drop dramatically and lines are typically at their shortest.
Now, the bargains are even better. From August 15 to September 30, Disney, SeaWorld and Universal also have free dining deals.
At SeaWorld, the free food offer is the unlimited All-Day Dining (a $32.99 value), with each full paid admission.
If you stay at Universal Orlando Resort, you get two days of free meals with a four night stay.
Disney’s offer is for a more limited time period; from September 2-25, get a free dining plan with a non-discounted 5-night/6-day Magic Your Way room and ticket package at some Disney Resort hotels.
If you can drag your kids away from the theme parks, many Orlando restaurants have discounted dining in September as part of Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining Month. Restaurants have three-course dinners for $33.
