We went last year on a cm discount and I was able to add the dining plan at a significant savings. We were there the week of July 4th.

That's comforting! I'm hoping for a May discount, so if they released one during a holiday week like that, I guess there is a possibility! Do you mind if I ask what the price per day ended up being just so I can get an idea?

Does anyone know if ticket purchase is required when you add dining to cast member discounted rooms?

Ticket purchase is not required. Most CMs get discounted tickets as stand alones.

Current promo ends 3-23.

I am staying on a CM friends and family in an AoA Cars suite 5/18-25 and it was discounted 40% with no discount on tickets or dining.


I called today about tickets and happened to ask if, by chance, there was any news on the dining plan offer?

The new deal I got was 50% off the room (yes, 50% off a Cars suite!!!!) and 15% off DDP. I did not have to purchase tickets (there is not additional ticket discount, but I was told that the CM could purchase tickets for me at a 10% discount at Company D...). Super deal. Made my day.

We traveled with a WDW CM in Jan. Got 60 % off the room and 60% off dining plan. It was great!

We have traveled with her before and the rates really do vary. We have always seemed to get some type of discount though.

I cannot remember exactly (I have the per day written down at the office) but it was like $45/day for adults and $16/day for kids. When I calculated the OOP, our costs were almost $1000. Regular DP was $1080, so since we aren't soda drinkers or dessert eaters it made more sense to do OOP (we'd rather have a beer with dinner than a brownie after ) - but this made the dining plan $890 or something like that. PLUS another 10% off the already deeply discounted room!

That totally made my day so I encourage everyone to call and check about the new CM F&F offer.

ETA: We are not traveling WITH the CM - but she will go show her ID for us before we arrive... the actual *CM* discount (when he/she is staying on property with the group) is much deeper than the F&F deal but I am super happy that we are getting 8 days/7nights in a family suite, 7 day passes, and the DDP for 2 adults, 2 children (7&8) for $3200. Regular rate was $4700+

I called first thing this morning not only did I get the 15% off the dining plan, but we also got an additional 10% off our room bringing it from 40% to 50%. Thanks you all for your help and keep calling for the best rates as if I did not call I would not have gotten the additional 10% and it was limited availability to it pays to call often!
thanks again!

YAY! That's what we got, too!!! Super excellent deal. And I only called on a lark to check on the ticket prices and happened to ask about the DDP and it ended up only costing us about $600 more than before to add the dining plan because of the extra 10% discount on the room helping to balance it out. Magic abounds!
