I had the same question - and as always I got an answer here on the DISboards :D Yay!..
I was told that if you stay in a value you get QSDP. If you want to upgrade to the regular dining plan you still need to pay the kid's price for the QSDP and then the price difference between the regular dining plan and the QSDP. Which comes out at \$14,32 plus the upgrade which I think is \$18 = \$32,32 per person per day in order to go from QSDP to reg DP.
For me it was about \$100-200 more to stay at POFQ with reg DP than at POP with QSDP - when I try to price it out (5nights, 6 days, 4 adults)

That's what I've been told :D but I still don't know if anyone can confirm that this is the way to do it!?

(And now it's a little hard to price it out, since the bookings at disneyworld.com is down! But if you know the rack-rate for the hotel then you can say:
Hotel room
+ (x * kid's ticket prices)
+ (x * kid's dining plan prices)

= a price which scould come close to what you will get from Disney on wednesday!

(+ x * nights * \$18 upgrade) -- only if you check a value and want to upgrade to reg DP)

Hmm.... It's late here in Denmark - just past midnight! But I hope I've written it all right

 10-08-2012, 05:51 PM #1068 bamatmac Earning My Ears   Join Date: Jul 2012 Posts: 14 I could not figure out the math exactly, but I'll post what our info case someone else has some luck with it. The details: 2 adults/2 kids for 1/2-1/8 (6 day non-park hopper tickets), 6 nights at POP, with upgrade to regular dining: \$2243.60. The same quote at POR (with regular dining) was \$2578.76. I was able to figure the POR quote as follows: Tickets: \$1039.92 (\$43.33 * 4 people * 6 days) Room: \$1127.00 Dining: \$411.84 (\$17.16 * 4 people * 6 nights) Total: \$2578.76 I was not able to figure out how they calculated the stay at POP (with upgrade to regular dining): Tickets: \$1039.92 (\$43.33 * 4 people * 6 days) Room: \$ 673.00 Dining: \$ 530.68 (???) Total: \$2243.60 I tried several scenarios to calculate the dining upgrade cost, but could never get it quite right. If I took the child cost for quick service (for all 4) and then the difference in child for 2 and difference in adult for 2, I came up with \$593.88 (about \$60 more), so I decided to just not complain! In the end, I couldn't justify over \$50/day to upgrade to POR. We've never stayed at either resort, so without any first-hand knowledge of the differences, we went with the cheaper option. I'm sure the kids will have so much fun, we won't care!

What type of specials are you anticipating for January? Anyone know why is the Disney site down? I will take any advice you can give me.....I'm a newbie and a little overwhelmed

We have early breakfast ADRs for two of the mornings and I'm sure we'll start the other two days bright and early as well. Then we have late dinner ADRs every night...so how much am I really going to sit on my balcony?? Probably not much at all. Your comments about the public viewing areas then really makes sense that we'll get to enjoy the animals without the cost given our time in our room. I'm also giving thought to downgrading to POFQ because I had a good experience there last year. Tough choices!
We stayed at POFQ many, many, many years ago and had a good experience. Since then we've done deluxe, but are going back to POFQ in January as we're traveling with others who would like to save some money. I continue to hear great things about POFQ.

I'll try to help. No idea what DO means (dining only???). Or did you mean RO, which is room only. There is a room only discount out for January as well as a play/stay/dine package. Those were only available to Disney VISA card holders until yesterday/today. I think I read that the site would then be down until the 10th when these deals are open to the public. Hope that helps a bit.

I'm not sure what DO means either? RO is room only and refers to an offer that only gives a discount on the room cost and nothing else.

Last week Disney Visa holders were offered either a RO disount on certain resorts or something called the play/stay/dine offer or p/s/d. The p/s/d to the best everyone can figure out is you pay regular rate for your hotel room but you pay kids prices for tickets and dining plan. The exact offer is posted in the first message on this thread: http://disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3002641.

The Disney site is down for maintenance either until or through the 9th. It is expected that the offer given to the Disney Visa holders will be the same ones available to the general public (GP) on the 10th.

Hope that helps!!

Sounds like you got the math down pretty close. I'm off by about \$120 dollars when I try to calculate the numbers...maybe I'm doing tax wrong?

I find it a little annoying that they don't itemize your package for you when they send you your reservation details. I wonder if they do that on purpose
