1) Correct.
2) And, as a surprise to many, "free dining" is in the hotel room cost.
3) The restaurants nor the parks pay for free dining.
4) This is paid directly by the individual resort.
5) So, it is already built into your room fee.
6) And, it comes off the profit margin of the hotel General Manager.
7) This is also why there are different amounts of packages at each hotel.
8) And, some hotels may not even offer free dining for some room categories.
