Mousesavers describes this new discount as a percentage discount off the room, and you can also book a package with the same room discount. So it's really not a discount on the dining, or paying child's prices for the dining. The savings you get might end up being the equivalent of paying the child's prices for the dining.

I hope the savings aren't capped at $600. Let's see if it will be worthwhile for us or if we should just get the regular room-only and pay OOP for every meal.

QSDP would only work for us if free or with a huge discount as it will probably be more food than we would have considering we're staying for 14 nights and only going to disney parks for 7.5 days (other meals onsite include breakfast at PoP and other resorts and dinners at DTD).

I'll just have to wait till next week to try my package combination to see the savings.

At least we're having an offer , not FD though!

If you read the specifics of this stayplaydine deal they say that it's based on a family of 4 but there's only 2 of us going... if it is pay the kids price for the free dining that would mean that it would be 350 dollars for 2 of us for 7 days ... I don't know that deal is a little unclear

IF the way to calculate de package discount is "adult at child price in dining and in tickets"
I think the way to compare both promotions is this:

Value
Room only promotion:
Full Rack Rate Magic Your Way Package plus Quick Dining (Value Room+Tickets+Quick Dining plan) minus Average Night Room cost per night for the entire stay per 25%.

Package Promotion
Full Rack Rate Magic Your Way Package (Value Room+Tickets+Quick Dining Plan) minus (Number of Adults x U$S 23,26 x nights of stay) minus Number of Adults x U$S 19

Moderate or Deluxe:
Room Only
Full Rack Rate Magic Your Way Package plus Dining (Moderate or Deluxe Room+Tickets+Quick Dining plan) minus Average Night Room cost per night for the entire stay per applicable discount (25/35%)

Package Promotion
Full Rack Rate Magic Your Way Package (Value Room+Tickets+Quick Dining Plan) minus (Number of Adults x U$S 38,43 x nights of stay) minus Number of Adult x U$S 19

I take U$S 19 as a average difference between adult tickets and child tickets.
U$S 23,26 is the difference between quick plan for adults and child per night .
U$S 38,43 is the difference between dining plan for adult and child per night.

Of course if you dont want the dining plan or the tickets, the comparation is useless and the room discount is always the deal.

I could be totally wrong

I can't tell how this discount works as far as how many nights you can book or exactly what form the discount takes but it appears to be a varying percentage off the package price.
It sounds like when this is available to the public it is one of those things that you should price it out for yourself. If I can get a full package for the price of room and ticket, then that may make it easier for me to do all of it instead of piecemeal.

If you go to the February 2013 discount watch thread someone says that they talk to their triple A agent and discovered that there is in fact a free dining promotion being released ...I don't know if that is the "$600" deal; but it sounded like it was the traditional free dining offer that we but it sounded like it was the traditional free dining offer that we are all the use to

I ended up dropping a day and switching to standard view instead of pool view at AKL, but we saved $1400! So, better than free dining for us!!! =)

FD may indeed be coming

I called this am and made reservations with cm at wdw using the disney visa promo (thanks to y'alls posts!) and was told I have a pin for FD that just isn't activated yet...so I bet it is coming to public....usually when I get a pin code offer the discount follows shortly for the public.

We saved $1793 on our package we had already booked. POR Royal Room Jan 3-13, 4 adults, 8 day park hoppers and the dining plan.

This is an awesome deal for us. As good as free dining (almost)

I'm toally happy about this promo.

Now I wish January would get here already

When I called this morning- the cm told me the same thing. That I had a fd pin that was not released yet. Did they give you any idea when it would be activated or what the dates are????

As far as PINs go is my understanding that those only go to people who have been to disney before?
