Aww darn, but for the s/p/d plan...it's still a pretty good deal. I feel it's a win-win in any situation.

so, if a dining plan can't be added to a room only reservation, does that mean anyone who wants a dining package has to use the S/P/D discount?

so you can use the RO discount and add tickets at full price and dining at full price to make it a package? I can't decide what to go with on Wed. the 10th. It's so confusing!!

Ok so doing the math sith the S/P/D. I think it would cost $883 more on my current reservation to add the Regular Dining Plan. We do have 9 Table Service Meals already reserved, so I am thinking this is a great way to go overall versus out of pocket. Our current reservation is 1/30 - 2/8 1 child 2 Adults at Ft Wilderness Cabins. I would actually change my child's age to 10 on the reservation so he could pick from any menu he wanted as he is a daring eater. I don't think this would be an issue for Disney???!!! (He will be 8 at the time of travel). Thoughts is $883 more worth it for 27 Table, 27 QS, and 27 Snacks, knowing we are already planning on using all of the 27 Table?

Thanks for the help!

I think that math makes sense! I mean even if you just calculate the cost of the DP as paying for the 9 table service meals x 3 of you for 27 meals and divide that by the $833 = that's an average of $31 a meal for each of you and that's probably reasonable at Disney. Then the QS and snacks are basically free!

I don't see an issue with you paying adult prices for the 8 year old.

Thanks for the feedback. I am all over it the morning of the 10th!

Ok, so this has me more confused. I currently have a Magic Your Way Package booked(Room @ CSR and Tickets). Would I be able to possibly upgrade to AKL using a room only discount and add dining to the package I already have? TIA

You can get the CM to price out all sorts of different options for you at different hotels and see what the different costs are based on what discounts are available at which hotels. I had them price out AKL standard room, pool room, and savannah room with the RO discount, plus ddp, and tix. Then I had the CM price out the same rooms with the p/s/d discount. I also had them check the poly for me to see what the cost would be.

Just as an FYI - the savannah view rooms at AKL are only a 5% RO discount so the p/s/d would probably be the better deal if you get the DP and tix. However, the standard view and pool view at AKL are 35% off for the RO discount which, depending on your party size and if you want the DP, may or may not be cheaper than the p/s/d option...

Hope that helps!

Oh, well we were aiming for Pool View only if we were to stay at AKL, so we'll be fine in that sense. I guess I'll never really know until I can call in on Wednesday! If I did the math correct, we might have a better deal with the room only deal. This is kind of reassuring and there's hope for us yet.

I believe the offer to Visa holders exclusively was available thru the 7th (someone will correct me if I'm mistaken). Then it opens back up to the GP on the 10th. I imagine they did it that way because of the system downtime planned tonight thru tomorrow.
