So I'm seeing some people saying they are getting discounts on their rooms for their trips. Guess I'll call in this morning and see if they can do anything for me. Not holding out much hope since I'm going at a peak time at AoA LM, but it never hurts to ask right?

I'll let everyone know of the outcome.

Okay ya'll, I need some advice. I just checked out the room only discount. It will save us $1.400.00. BUT ......Now we are paying for all food out of pocket. If we take this discount over free dining we would drop most of our breakfast reservations. We eat very little breakfast. But I made the reservations just trying to use the credits with the DxDP. I am sure we will still eat lunch and supper at all the TS resturants that I already have booked. So........ what would ya'll do.

I tried last year its one or the other

for us the room is always the better deal. But we split meals and only eat once a day in the parks last year we had a 35% off room and we only spent an additional $600 on everything else. We spent about half of what we are this year.

There's a spreadsheet out there that can help you figure out exactly what your OOP costs would be, but it takes a lot of work.

Presumably, you upgraded from FD (QSDP or DDP?) to DxDP. How much was the upgrade? Add that to your $1,400 saved. Then start subtracting your OOP food costs. My understanding is that, for most people, DDP is a close call on cost savings. We are big eaters and like TS and Signature, and character meals, so DxDP is what we go with... If you're not eating any or many breakfasts, the cost gets closer to being a wash or better for OOP. The only way to know for sure is to start adding up what you would pay OOP for your ADRs and eating style.

I knew it wouldnt take long for me to find something else to obsess about.

New room discount - DH and I have been a little put off by the fact that last year we did the room discount and it was such a savings that this year our cost has doubled. Well now there is a room discount!!! Last year we got 35% this year looks like only 30% but we could still save $1300.

Guess we'll have to see what hubby says when he gets home from work today.

We had to do this as well. What I did was list all the ADR's I would keep if I did not have DP. I then looked at the menus for those locations at allears.net And used my best judgement on what the amount would be per meal. I then added them up and knew what my OOP dining expense would be. Hopefully that makes sense.

Wow!! Thanks for all of the imput ya'll. I just sat hubby down and explained everything to him. I think we are going for the room discount and going to pay oop for the food.

We started with FD and then upgraded to DxDP DH does prefer two TS meals a day.(Which is why I upgraded to DxDP.) But with the DxDP I felt pushed to use those credits. So I did. It is just to many meals for us to comfortably eat every day. We do not have children going so we do not need the meal time to use as down time. I wish Disney offered a plan with 2 TS meals a day.



After typing this all out..........I'm still confused.

Wow!! But you have more people. And you are getting a 20% discount with POR right? The WL being a delux is 30%. And there are just 2 of us going.

Wow!! If I were to change to a club level standard from our 1 br villa we would save $1000.00. But Ive gotten myself so excited about all the ADRs Ive booked I dont know if I could cancle any of them. so there goes our savings and we would be in a smaller room. I think DH will want to do for the room discount so that means I would most likely cancel my Boma breakfast and dinner. And I would probably cancel my 1900 PF breakfast also.

Thanks for sharing this. Good info.
