Free Dining with DVC

If I was to rent DVC points during the free dining promotion could I get free dining? Also, would it be cheaper to rent DVC then if I was to stay at a moderate (likely POFQ) through Disney?

Thanks alot,

DVC stays do not qualify for free dining.

If you want the DDP and need a room, free dining will always be cheaper than DVC, even renting privately. You can rent and add dining for a fee. You can likely rent a DVC villa through CRO with free dining.

If you are renting points from a member, you do not qualify for free dining. I would suggest pricing a reservation with free dining and comparing it to renting the points from a member and paying for dining.

Taking the dining out of the picture (which I think is what you're asking in your 2nd question), before we purchased DVC, we rented. We rented twice and found that the cost, thought not cheaper, was equivalent to our moderate resort stays. We looked at it as bumping up to a deluxe resort for a moderate price. Now, this was years ago so you would need to do your own research. This also was staying in a studio, remembering that a studio has one bed and one pull out sofa instead of two beds.

unfornately dvc has no incentive to offer dining ever to dvc memvers, they already are paying regardless.

Then again DVCs have full kitchens for a reason. Although i do have to wonder what percentage of us use the kitchens??

I thought the dining plan was in fact available to DVCers?

the dinning plan definitely is available to DVCers

but the FREE dinning is not.

it is only available to those who pay rack rate for the room and full price for the tickets.

so it is not really free.

disney has make exception for annual pass holders - but never for the full rack rate for the room.

Free dining is a program to fill rooms. DVC rooms on points are always full, whether there is a body in the room or not. If you book at DVC resort for cash through Disney Reservation Center, you can get free dining. Just not for points stays.
