Has any UK member taken advantage of the new rule for the Disney Dining Plan?

Last year we had to make a DDP booking for every night of our member stay, it now seems that members can make one or more separate DDP bookings for any amount of days during your stay.

For example, we can book three 2-night DDP's during our 2-week vacation or just 5 consecutive nights, any combination it seems, even changing to a different type of Dining Plan.

If so that's great news and has any UK member taken advantage of this new rule yet?

Not yet, although I intend to when I book later in the year. Bear in mind that if you're not purchasing the DDP when you book, you need to ensure the booking is segmented when you book it otherwise you'll have to cancel and rebook when you add the dining plan.

From what I have read, I have a feeling that this is not the case any more. But I will be ringing MS tomorrow and will ask the question.

This has always been the case and nothing new, the rule is you must have the DDP for the duration of a stay, if you choose to have 5 stays that happen to be linked and happen to be in the same room thats your business but happens to allow you to book DDP for each and every one or only for a couple of them.
I never bother doing this but often stay at more than one hotel whilst on property, this year I will be staying at 3 different ones and the DW and MIL will be staying at 4. DW and MIL are having the delux DDP for their 3 night stay at VWL, we are all staying at BCV for 3 nights and not on plan, we are then at the THV for 4 nights on the ordinary DDP followed by 3 nights at BLT where we again are having the DDP but have not decided as to if it will be the ordinary or the delux.

We've booked 11 nights at BLT at Christmas with the last 6 nights on DDP by segmenting the reservation. It remains to be seen whether it will all work ok though

I'm thinking about doing something similar for our upcoming break in April but am afraid if they start messing about cancelling and re-booking/segmenting I may lose my booking.

Member Services advised me against touching my booking (I was looking to swap points with a friend) in case i may lose my accommodation during the process as they are very busy at AKV over Easter & no extra availability for my studio-all gone, so cannot 'double book' then cancel my original booking.
I thought computers were supposed to make things easier!!!!!

Lesley
ps Any idea how much in £ (from Disney UK site) and in $ (USA site) the standard (ie not quick service) plan is per adult?
I think may be cheaper for me to book in $ because of good rate with Euro

Has any UK member taken advantage of the new rule for the Disney Dining Plan?


Disney Dining Plan Pricing:
$45.99 per night, per Guest ages 10+ from DVC web-site.
£32.99 per night, per Guest ages 10+ from Disney web site.

Told by Member Services that they could segment a reservation without canceling and losing booking.

Try ringing Member Services again, it seems members are being told different things depending on who you speak to.

We have not done it yet but I am planning on phoning in a week or so to add dining and segment our reservation.
We are 10 nights in AKL and are planning to segment pretty much every night, then we can do 1 day on the DELUXE dining plan and next without etc for whole stay.
We really don't like counter service so the regular dining plan doesn't really work for us, as you get 3 TS credits on the delux, and they last until midnight the day you "c heck out" this in practice means we have 3TS credits every 2 days, so we will be having 1 TS dinner one day and then either a signature TS the next or a character breakfast and another regular TS.
The delux plan costs $78.99pp, you ALSO get 3 courses instead of 2 at the restaurants, so for us this is a no brainer!
I have read a lot about it and know that ppl have had problems but I am more than willing to be the one to sort it out if there is any, its always me anyway, but for us this represents really good value.

Just remember that when you ask to segment your holiday they will need to cancel your original reservation, make sure its still available before segmenting

Does anyone know if segmenting is still allowed for DVC owners? We'd love to do DDP for part of our next vacation but over 2 weeks would be too much food'

Thanks
