Please help-

I am trying to book a trip for my mom, two sons and my neice.. You may remember that my mom has cancer and this is something she wanted to do.We wanted to go during the Free Dining and we were looking at going the 3rd week in September... Anyways- when I try to book just straight from the site- It brings up a total of 2,161.00. Not too bad for 6 people and with free food.. However, when I do the Free Dining Option, it says that this our party exceeds the amount of people allowed to stay. WHAt is that?

So is this 6 people in 1 room? Values only accommodate 4 people. Some Mod rooms will allow 5 people, but most only 4. Deluxe resorts accomodate 5 people.

If you have more than 2 adults (18 and over) in any room there is a $25 charge per extra adult.

Is it putting you into a family suite in first option?

My memory is that suites are not available for free dining, so when you go to free dining, it tries to put you into a standard room - and six people is too many.

Of course, my memory could be totally wrong.

Art of Animation and All-Star Music both have family suites that can hold a family of 6. So does Coronado Springs, Port Orleans, Cabins at Fort Wilderness, Animal Kingdom Lodge, The Polynesian, Saratoga springs, Old Key West, and the Grand Floridian.

From what I understand, there are "blackout" dates for the free dining if you are in one of the family suites at the value resorts. You have to upgrade resorts, or do 2 rooms for the free dining. Port Orleans has pretty decent rates, from my family of 6 research. Have you considered staying off site? You can't do dining, but you can save enough cash that paying for food about equals out. It can even be cheaper.

Just read this: "As in the past few years, those booking Value Resorts will get the “quick service” plan for free, and those booking Moderate Resorts, Deluxe Resorts, or Disney Vacation Club Resorts will get the regular dining plan for free.
As is also common, grand villas, suites and The Campsites at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort are excluded. (The Cabins at Fort Wilderness Resort are eligible.) Update: Art of Animation is in the deal.
For some reason, All-Star Music Family Suites are also not eligible."

I think the site still suffers from a few bugs now and then.

Call them.

Good luck.
