I booked a trip using my 40% off the resort coupon. Now I see there is free dining for the week that I will be there. Is there a way I can tag that onto my package? Dare to Dream??

you cant stack discounts, you'd need to price out which would save you more, then 40% off or the free dining, you cant have both :(

"Free Dining" is not free -- it's a package discount, and cannot be combined with other discounts. If you think it will save you more money than 40% off the room rate (depends on party size and grade of accommodation), you can try and re-book as a "free dining" package.

Since you are staying at the Poly your 40% off code is probably a better deal. FDP works out better for those staying at a value. :goodvibes

We are staying at POP and Free Dining saved us a ton over the 40%, especially since my kids are adults where dining is concerned.

Same for us...we are 4 adults on the plan and staying at AS Sports!! ;)

On the other hand, as a family of 2 adults, 1 child, and 2 infants, I calculated that staying 7 nights at Port Orleans Riverside on the 4/3 deal was almost a wash compare to free dining, cost-wise. I think free dining would have won out, except for the $200 gift card that came with the 4/3 deal.

More people per room --> free dining value increases
Higher grade of accommodation --> room discount value increases

thanks everyone- I priced it out and the 40% room reduction at Poly is a better deal.

I would say to figure out which discount will save you more money, then call and ask if you can have both. My Aunt was just there over spring break, and they were offering a bounce-back that was BOTH 20% off AND free dining. I believe it was 20%, might have actually been a higher percent, Disney brain today! Good luck
