I was just wondering if anyone else thought so too. I sent an email to Disney expresing my opinion. I think if we get more people on board, they may change that rule.
sorry but rules are rules. Value resorts get the QSDP and the moderate resorts get the reg DP. Just because your suite cost more than the package you had at the moderate level last year, it doesnt mean your entitled to the reg DP. If you want the reg DP, stay at the moderate level. Or upgrade the DP at the value level.

Complain? Lol. Sorry but i dont understand why the OP would complain. DPs are tied to your resort level, not your package $ amount, as mentioned.

OP, IMO your complaint is not valid.

I know this will never happen. It's like when some clothing stores will charge more for an XL or XXL (supposedly for the increase cost in fabric) but don't charge less for an XS? The tiered system always favors the house!
Nah, they would probably come up with another dining tier. Value resorts would get a loaf of white bread and a package of bologna. Moderates would get the QSDP. Deluxe would get the regular plan.

You still get a refillable mug with that bread and baloney right.

I do like the turn that this thread is taking. Whats the cost to upgrade to turkey if you dont like bologna? Guess im going to have to book moderate or higher just so i can eat.

Seems like the big problem with the OP, is that now they have 6 "real" people, instead of 5. So they have to start paying for the toddler's extra little body, go go fire codes!

50$ or more a night for his or her little body seem so high. Kids these days cost a bundle!

you're complaining about FREE dining? Really?? It's FREE!! if you don't like the counter service, simply upgrade and pay the difference.

We stayed at the GF and they didn't give us deluxe dining...we had to pay the upgrade from regular dining... it's not a big deal.

I don't think the OP is complaining that the dining is free. I think she's venting a frustration that the free dining program seems unfair to her in how it's implemented. However, the others have provided explanations as to why it might seem unfair but it's not from a business perspective. Doesn't mean she still wouldn't like to see it changed.

And really...is it really free? Disney made $1.8 billion in net income last year! The CEO said "We had a phenomenal third quarter, delivering the largest quarterly earnings in the history of our company," Iger said in a statement. http://money.cnn.com/2012/08/07/inve...ings/index.htm

Nothing is free. It's all marked up one way or another. Now if a cheeseburger cost me $8 instead of $16 and then I didn't get any discounts I'd be happier!

In the end it's a discount promotion just like a room discount and I've got plenty of complaints about how they do the room discounts. I just know that my complaints don't matter because it's all about WDW's business model - how they can make even bigger profits in 2013. Bigger room discounts for the rooms at resorts that need to be filled.

Just because someone wants to complain about the offer doesn't mean they don't appreciate the discount they just want to vent about how they think it's unfair. Should everyone jump on the Disboards and say "I just paid $5,000 for a vacation at WDW and I got free QS dining...I'm the luckiest person ever! Thanks so much Disney for caring about me!!"

In the end, I work hard for my money and I want Disney to work hard to take it from me!! Give me lots of discounts and make my vacation awesome so that I hand over the money with a smile
