that could make sense with the difference between the resorts, but why would that affect the difference in the price for Pop century with and without the food plan? does the country charge a $0.50 a day tax to allow free food plan?

Oh now that you say that, I have read that before!

I don't know. It could be extra taxes on the room because there's a giveaway involved (though no discount); it could be a miniscule tax on the dining plan itself. And again, these could vary between counties. It's just speculation on my part, but it's about the only kind of thing I can imagine that would affect pricing by such a small amount.

I think all the parks and most of the resorts are in Orange County. The very southernmost portion of WDW land, though, and I think a few resorts (maybe only the All Stars), are in Osceola County. Osceola County, from what I can tell in a quick google maps lookup, has the Osceola Parkway along its northern border. The All Stars resorts are below that road, as is the ESPN Wide World of Sports. Everything else in WDW appears to be north of that road.

The hoops Walt and Roy went through to buy all that land, from all those separate owners, crossing county lines, while mostly keeping it secret until the announcement, is a feat that I can't imagine will ever be repeated.

No, you are right, its been a long time, but I have definitely read this before and would probably account for the minimal discrepancy.

it may just be speculation, but its speculation that makes more sense than anything I could come up with. I had forgotten about them being different and counties and having different taxes until you mentioned it. Either way I am happy, it upped my trip to $5507 from $5493 and I needed $5501+ to get the $200 gift card vs a $150 one.

For those of you concerned, I received "confirmations" right away on only three of my four rooms. 24 hours later, I received the actual Invoices and all four rooms were there. Would not call back unless you haven't heard by tomorrow afternoon.

Called three times and basically zero discount for nemo suites for me. it's okay. I look it as the time my family will there it will be so dead because everyone will be there earlier in the month. (I know it will still be busy just not as bad) and I got every single one of my ADRs that I wanted for my kids so that's another plus. There is always next year 😊

I just want to add that they said I can change to a lion long or cars but my kids are already so excited for nemo I didn't want to ruin it for them. If they had no intention of adding the nemo they should have said that from the beginning. A family suite is a family suite to me and they are all the same price to so what's the big deal! Sorry I'm just venting now.

Can't you just switch to one of the other suites? That's a LOT of savings to pass up.

Nemo is included for some dates, some people have applied the FD there. Nemo just isn't that much cuter to me to give up that kind of discount. But that's just me :-)

My husband really wants the nemo. It's the one thing he had a say in for the whole vacation. I'm really not to upset but I feel like I'm missing out. But I'm okay with it. Next year we are definitley waiting and taking advantage of it

If you live to be a 100, I hope to live to be 100 minus 1 day. So I never have to live without you.
