Question Dining Plan instead of Quick Service?

If I am in a Value Hotel and I want the Dining Plan, do the online reservation system automatically charges me ONLY the difference from Quick Service or only they give it out while staying at a moderate? Or a must call Disney?
THANKS!

As long as you are booking through the free dining offer link, it should only charge you the difference.

You can make a new reservation on line and you can upgrade on there when you book. If you have an existing reservation you have to call and have them add the FD code and to upgrade your DDP.

Free Dining for October 2013

Wow. This is crazy. I saw this entry in April. You were right on point. Thanks. I have been waiting for free dining to be offered for the fall. Now, it gets released only until 9-25.However, we have our trip planned for 10-2-13. Any word on extending free dining getting extended?

The October - December free dining discounts are not ever released until July, sometimes August.

I originally had a Nemo room but wasn't able to keep it when my TA switched my res. to free dining on Monday. She tried again today but the CM told her due to popularity they weren't included in the free dining. I'm holding out hope one will be available when we check-in!
