We're booked for Nov 2013. Right now, the DDP is included in our package. We were hoping for FD as that is what has been offered the past few years. That would be about an $800 savings for us. The QSDP is about a $550-600 savings (didn't figure it out exactly). It would cost about $200 for us to upgrade so we'd only be looking at a total savings of $400 from rack rate so we'd really have to break down the menus to see if it makes sense to do that or not. Honestly, my son is so picky, I'll probably just pack him peanut butter sandwiches the whole week so maybe I should skip it anyway!

Wouldn't people booking up rooms without a discount result in no discount being offered or a less discount being offered? I mean, if everyone is putting down deposits and booking up rooms at full price, why would any business need to discount the product as deeply or as much?

I would think that if the majority of travelers held off booking until the discount came out, it may result in greater discounts.

Disney has thought of a way around this. If I don't make the reservation at least 6 months in advance I run the risk of not being able to find the dining reservations I want. Added to that some people's desire for a River view or preferred room and people almost have to book without a discount.

As much as I want certain ADRs, I won't pay rack rate for a room at Disney to get them. That's a pretty hefty price for a few days head start. There are only 2 or 3 ADRs you might not get with the +10.

Sure, but lots of people don't want to pay rack rate for their trip and go ahead and book their room to take advantage of the 180+10 and/or feel like they are securing their dates/room. They'll just cancel if nothing comes out or change their plans.

It's something Disney is aware of.

Most people don't do this. The average guest books WDW about 14 weeks in advance. We DISers are just above average!

Last year, there was very limited availability for value resorts when free dining came out for Visa cardholders. Lots of people booked mods, but downgraded once the values became available later on.

I'm sure we'll be waiting a few months for the next round of discount news.

We are planning a trip mid sept and have our fingers crossed for the free dining...we are thinking of POFQ since we have stayed there in the past and loved it...We want the dining plan with 1TS/1QS if it's just the QS free dining, does anyone know how much money it is to upgrade to regular dining plan? we have 6 in our family, so the free dining would really be a big savings for us and could make or break the trip...

The QSDP alone save us almost 1500.00 since we are going for 2 weeks. We prefer not to be tied down to ADR's. I am so glad we booked bounce back last year.

There is a thread with upgrade costs on the dining board.

Thanks for the info....errr....potential info

We are hoping to go in November right before thanksgiving (like the weekend before, not for thanksgiving) OR in October and were hoping for free dining. If we don't get free dining (at a value) we'll likely just go with a 2 bedroom at Bonnet Creek as it's just about as 'onsite' as you can get and provides us with more room.

DW has to do what they have to do for their bottom line/shareholders and I gotta do what I gotta do for my pocketbook too
