Free Dining Plan, Di$ney100 etc

Hi Fellow UK folks.

I know the offer for Free Dining Plan, 100 Disney Dollars, 7 nights for the price of 14 has been going round a while and it ends in a couple of days. But last year I think it made a comeback later in the year etc.

Does anyone know if this is likely to happen again this year?

Thank You!!

(I love how helpful and knowledgeable the Disboarders are! )

Don't know if it's any use but we booked our holiday with all of the stuff you mentioned, but with the $200 gift card, in June last year

Yeah - they vary slightly each time.

We booked it last time through that and got Free Dining Plan, $100 and the tickets thing. But I know it later went to $200 and this time it's only a QSDP.



But at least you booking in June lends weight to my theory that it comes out again later in the year. But I guess there's no guarantees and I would imagine it depends on how popular it has been this time.

Thanks for your reply.

OMG I sincerely hope not as with my lot that's the ONLY way we can afford it. On our last trip last October we had the free regular dining plan and we worked out we saved about £1400 so it really made a BIG difference

Yeah - I was worried about that.

I'm not convinced I will be able to get a final and definitive answer on this... but I'd love someone to be able to prove me wrong.

My guess is that this may be it for 2013 offers - however I think you will see 2014 offers later in the Spring. What they are is anyones guess at this point. Things to note are Disney have not been shy at letting it be known that they want to reduce discounts and the UK market isn't as important to them as it once was.

Oh dear I hope they don't phase the free dining plan offer out! We're hoping to book for October 2014 if/when the offers come out.

Us too

I know Virgin have released next years prices, just hoping something comes out in April as usual. If not will have to look at the budget.

If only the QSDP is free, then will have to work out if its worth upgrading to DDP or paying for the extras OOP-usually we eat at loads of table service.

I've just priced up a package with VH for Oct 2014 and compared it to our Oct 2012 trip and it's only £150 more expensive and thats with no offers i.e paying for full 14 day tix rather than getting the 14 day for the price of 7 day tix.

TBH I'm really shocked as I thought it would be so much more expensive and now I'm really quite optimistic Now all I need is for those offers to come out i.e free DDP pleeeaaaassssee and I will be one very happy bunny
