Be lucky that you got free dining. It was not offered the one week we went this past August and we could not change dates to get it.

Then a bunch of people started commenting on it
I wondered if people really lived there and got to watch them every night

In the UK, only moderates and deluxes get the free dining offers. Moderates the QSDP and deluxes the table service DDP. Values just get some bread and butter.

But seriously. We found the QSDP worked out to be pretty much the same amount as we spend on food offsite anyway. And we get three (two if we eat at the condo) meals and snacks so don't go hungry. We wouldn't stay onsite if Disney didn't offer it though, it helps the costs of the already expensive rooms!

OP has 6 family members, so they have the choice of a value suite, two rooms anywhere, or Ft. Wilderness cabins. They can't stay in one room anymore. The $106 per night more for two rooms at POR than the ASM suite for nine nights would be $954 MORE and they are only paying $720 for the DDP upgrade. So, staying in the value suite and paying for the upgrade is cheaper than the two rooms they need.

Now, if they are at AoA, then it's only $56 per night difference, and that times nine nights would be $504, so it would be cheaper to do the two mods.

The cabins at Ft. Wilderness are $285/night in the month of Sept ($300 on weekends), so they could stay there for just a little more than the ASM suites and get the regular DDP.
I think this is the crux of the whole thing, the Value suite with the regular DP costs less than the 2 mod rooms with the regular DP, all seems as it should.

To WDW, for free dining purposes, a value resort is a value resort, no matter whether you have a family suite within a value resort or not. It's still a value resort. Room size and cost do not enter into that particular categorization.
