Ugh, I hope not. No offense to those out there that find FD to be a deal, but I keep hearing reports of food quality decline because of FD and I know that it has been slipping since the DDP was first implemented. I am hoping that they don't offer FD during our stay. We are paying OOP for our food and would prefer to know that Disney hasn't cut the quality of the food to be able to control the bottom line, yet again.

I would much rather see a general public room only code come out.

I believe that the package discount that already available may actually save you more money during that time than what FD would. You should go do some number crunching.

package discount during november? or january?
i didn't number crunch november til i thought about it after he said it.........now i need to.
i didn't find any discount in january except for AAA discount.
15% off deluxe rooms 20% off mods.
we want to do Beach Club this time, but now I hear Stormalong Bay may be closed for rehab in January.................. if so we will go back to Poly.
But now I need to rethink November, if there is a significant savings package.

Some people at some resorts were saving as much as 40% off with the current discount. I am sure that you are familiar with mousesavers.com, but the deal is readily available on Disney's website.

The current deal is only good though mid-December. AAA is the only discount currently available for January.

Our December room at CR is booked with a AAA discount. Oddly, the package code didn't save us anymore on the room than AAA would have. Since we already have tickets, it's not really necessary for us to do a package deal. My MIL is using a combo of AAA and the FL resident discount. The FL discount was great, it was $60 off a night on a Garden Wing room. We number crunched the Poly, which I think was about 30% off, but it was too expensive for my MIL. She is paying half of her room and we are paying the other half. We bought her park ticket and her MVMCP ticket.

The problem with the code that is out there at this point is availability. The week of the 14th is where the most availability remains. Good luck!

I'm going to look more into the discount dining options you guys are talking about. 15% off for Deluxe Resort guests is still an improvement over no discount. I'm also trying to figure out if the DDP is available if you don't book a "Magic Your Way" package.

The DDP is only available with the MYW packages, unless you are a DVC owner and using your points for your stay. A MYW package requires at least a one day park ticket purchase.

Just remember, if you change to a package booking, the entire balance for the room, tickets, and dining would have to be paid for 45 days in advance of your stay and if you have to cancel or reschedule there could be penalties.

Honestly, we have usually find the purchase of AAA to be the best money saver on our Disney vacations. It's cheap and offers other benefits year round. The downside is that if we want to book a MYW package, we have to use a AAA travel agent and our local AAA office stinks. However, using the room only discount is just a quick call to Disney to check availability.
