Hope this is true and I wonder if this will be better than our room offer that we are currently booked under.

When calling Disney, will they take a look at the new reservation and let you know the cost difference from what I'm currently paying and this new offer before we make the change?

Does anyone know the cost to upgrade the QSDP to regular dining plan?

Now my fingers are crossed that this comes out. I may even upgrade to POFQ and Deluxe Dining. Either way, I'm doing Deluxe Dining!

I have dining reservations already, but not on the dining plan. They are all in restaurants that currently accept the dining plans. Is it easy to convert my plans over to free dining, assuming this actually happens?

This info conflicts directly with FD I just got this week

[QUOTE=danny25;42026629]these are the dates and the conditions of the new offer

Bookings Between August 3, 2011 - December 17, 2011
Travel Dates
October 2, 2011 - October 8, 2011
October 23, 2011 - November 5, 2011
November 13, 2011 - November 19, 2011
November 27, 2011 - December 3, 2011
December 11, 2011 - December 17,

Free Quick Service Dining for values and regular dining for moderates deluxe and villas
QUOTE]

I called and made a reservation on Monday and was told there was a pin code for FD with my name. It was Free QSD for values and DDP for moderates and deluxes.

OUR DATES ARE which we got FREE DINING FOR: NOVEMBER 3rd -12th which are in the blackout dates according to this info. However, I priced the stay previously with free dining and without it and the price I got with FD matched the stay without dining so no blackouts applied to our dates.

So, I wouldn't believe everything you read on hear until it comes from a veteran mod or Disney itself. Since we got one this week but others haven't, I think they are rolling out discounts slowly. I don't know the criteria. It seems hit or miss right now.

So that adds $1760. (More than my math going off of the pp's price diff. in QS, Reg & Dx.

POR, AB room w/ 7 day park hoppers w/ FDDP = $ 3118.38
POR, AB room w/ 7 day park hoppers upgraded to DxDDP = $ 4438.38
That adds $1320 from DDP to DxDDP.

Difference in POR vs. ASMu = $941.70.
Is the extra room & bathroom worth that much??
As far as I know max occupancy in a double bed room at POR is 4, so you wouldn't be able to stuff a 5th person in there unless they're a baby. Which means that you'll either have to keep your ASMu suite or get two rooms. Would it be worth it to get two adjoining rooms at ASMu? Because two rooms at POR would be a whole lot more of course. Your FD upgrades to DxDDP all stay the same so really it's a matter of seeing if two rooms is cheaper than the suite. The POR seems cheaper, but since you'd have to get another room it would actually end up costing a LOT more I think than the suite. You'd have to do some math there.

I was really hoping that FD dates for 2012 would be released. We are trying to do a few days in the park before a cruise in Feb.

Any rumors for next year yet? We booked for this past Jan. last Aug. I hope history repeats itself or some sort of great deal comes out.

You really don't need to convert anything. When you go to the restaurant and it is time to pay you can just pay with your dining plan. The server will usually ask you right away if you are on any plans anyway.

The only thing that might have to be changed is if you booked any dining reservations that had to be paid in full and you were already charged for them. Like the castle or a dinner show. Not sure what they do then but I am sure someone on here does!

You don't convert your ADRs to free dining - it makes no difference. You can, if you want, have a reservations CM link your ADRs to your room, but you don't have to do that either - ADRs don't ever have to be linked to a room or a discount.

The only difference I see is if you paid OPP for a ressie, like CRT. Then you could get a credit.

POR can accomodate 5. There are 2 double beds and a trundle bed in many of the rooms.

Once you confirm your ressie with free dining, have them link your ADRs to your package ressie. If you booked a dinner show or CRT, for example, make sure they change the credit card to just a guarantee so you don't get charged for the full price (or get a refund if you already have).

@snowflake- while you can't downgrade to QSD, you can use your TS credits to get a QS meal- just not the other way around. That should give you more flexibility

Awesome. I was hoping that they will.
Unfortunately we will be going to disney november 13-19th and if they do offer the free dining, it's more then likely the week i go will be packed. . oh well. What can you do. right?

Not all rooms at POR sleep 5, but the Riverside section does sleep 5 and usually fills up very quickly.
