Is there anything better than Free Dining and Fastpasses?

Because it was started on April 29th of 2010. Sometimes someone will do a search for free dining and the first thread that comes up they post it and revive an old thread, instead of searching for the current thread, which is here:

I was told and by doing the math if you are staying at a value or a moderate the free dining is the best deal and for the deluxes the room discount is the best. If you like the table service meals then free dining would maybe be better. I agree the cost of eating at Disney sit down restaurants is expensive. It cost us at least 70.00 to 90.00 dollars each time and that was for 2 adults and a child. OOOPs old post I didnt even look at the date LOL

Question Traveling with 3 children

We'll be traveling with 3 children - ages 5-9. We'll be booking a room that accommodates 5 people and will be buying park tickets for 5 people. Does that mean we would get the free dining plan for all 5 people? (It said rates based on two adults, one junior - whatever that is - and one child.) If the free dining plan will only work for 4 people, will we be able to buy a dining plan for the third child?

You would only get free dining if your check in date falls within the free dining period. Every member of your party would get free dining in this case.

A junior is a "Disney Adult". Once children turn 10, they pay adult prices. So legally they're still children but at Disney, they don't qualify for children's' prices. Like pp said, everyone on your reservation would get free dining. They say based on 2 adults, etc. but it can be for however many legally fit in one room. The park ticket is a 2-day minimum.

Children on the Dining Plan can only order from the children's menus.

Are the reservations already open for the free dining plan? It's been 5 years since I've booked f/d. Thought they opened it at the end of Feb or March? I'm a Disney Visa member.
