I hope I'm posting this in the correct area. We've done a rough estimate of what our cost would be do pay out of pocket or go with the dining plan and it looks like the dining plan wins.

From what I'm reading, we would have to purchase a one day basic ticket in order to add dining? Since, my husband is active duty, we were planning on purchasing the 4 day $99 military tickets. I guess there is no way around this?

If you're eligible for the military room discount, you can add the dining plan to that offer without purchasing tickets as part of a package.

Thank so much for your quick reply. It looks like I'll be calling to try and change our reservation.

That is so good to know. I was wondering the same thing. We are coming in Nov/Dec and staying 9 nights. We are doing 7 days in park and 1 day at Seaworld. Check-in and Check-out day are for DTD for us! It is good to know that we can eat before we hit the road for the drive back home!

If I am an AP holder and need to buy a one day base ticket to get the free dinning, is this one day ticket given to you to use another time and is not attached to a room key, and can you give this one day ticket to someone else?
Thanks

Two quick questions:
Are all entree items fair-game on the basic DDP? Or, do they exclude some of the more expensive items (Like $30 steak dinners at LeCellier or the fillet entree at Teppan Edo)?

At a TS place, are you able to order an appetizer/soup/salad or something and pay out of pocket at the same time you use a DDP credit for the entree/dessert, or do they create a seperate tab for this?

It's usually also coded on your room key. You can either keep the room key and use it later, or have the ticket removed from the key and put on a Tyvek ticket. I believe you need to go to a Guest Services at a park or DTD to have that done.

Yes, these are all included.

You can order anything you wish. Any off-plan items will be put on a separate check.

Hi, and thanks for compiling all this info and helping all of us with questions!!

We hope to make it down for a few nights in May for my bday , and possibly again in Sept or Oct for F&WF , but definitely next Jan for hubby's bday! And I'm contemplating getting the DDP for the first time in May. AACK! So many details and options!!!!

So my DDP questions are to confirm my assumptions:
1) The purchase of 10-day no-expiration tickets would work on the May trip, packaged with room, in order to qualify for the DDP? and
2) If we do get to come later this year and/or next Jan, we would have to buy at least a 1-day tik with the room package to get DDP for each stay?

We decided to go to the DDP,because It It gives us a little more felxabilty In eating at DTD. We always goto Rainforest cafe(both at DTD and AK),T-rex and House of blues. and we will end up still paying the diffrence In cost between the DDP and DxDP. Because I want to take advantage of all that those places give us from the meals to the apptiziers and desserts. My question If I goto our local Disney store and get a gift card can I use It at all the restraunts Includeing DTD?.

No you can only use a Disney gift card at Disney owned restaurants

As long as the tickets and the room are purchased as part of a package, it makes no difference at all what type of ticket you buy.

Yes, you need to buy the one day tickets to make the reservation a package. Unless you are an annual passholder or eligible for the military discount you can't get a package to which you can add dining unless you buy more tickets.
