Thank you. Im going to go check what the prices are for our family. We have no little ones..just 14 & 16 year old.

The SPD deal is what you'll want then because it allows adults to dine and get park tickets at kids prices.

I beg to differ...We have done FD 4 times(once in Sept.,and 3 x the week before Thanksgiving),and while the ADR'S have been hard to get(if you don't jump on them at 180 day mark),and the restaurants have been booked to the hilt,the crowds otherwise have been great...20 minute max waits for mostly everything.So yeah,the restaurants were crowded,the parks were just fine....That has been our experience anyway...We LOVE FD-saves us a bunch of $$$$!!!!

I wasn't trying to start yet another argument on Disboard. I was simply trying to look on the bright side about not getting free dining. I'm happy with the deal we got

Thanks so much for letting us know! Just saved another $50 on my February trip Not huge, but definitely worth 5 minutes of my time (and will buy us dinner one night )

SPD will be the better deal for your party because it is geared towards adults. It allows adults to get park tickets and dining plan at children's prices. The families with little ones is geared towards 2 or more kids being in your party to get the better discount.
