Bottom line is Disney knows what it's doing when it comes to making money. Great for stockholders
I'm a stockkholder but don't think the rising resort rates are great.

Would like to think they're 'challenging the market' and if people don't pay the higher rates they'll offer more promos/pins. I don't think next year's rates will drop but perhaps they won't increase as much as this year.

Also a stockholder and I'm ok with price increases. However if rates stay the same in 2014 I;ll be ok with that also. Absolutely hate free dining so glad that seems to be winding down. Might not get rid of it totally but that's ok too.

Man o man...

Remember the days when the DP included the gratuity and an appetizer? And they gave it away free.

That was a nice discount for us, family of 7.

Now I ran the math and the room discount and pay for meals OOP option is pretty much the same as rack rate and FD.

So we still get a discount, it's just that it used to be about $1500k - to $2000 (for FD over the years) and now it's about $1000 (for a room discount at Poly. Of course other resorts would be even less).

Im a stockholder as well. Disney will do what it needs to regardless. Im sure there will be a bit of a price increase. But there will always be some kind of discount. I look forward to seeing the rates for packages in 2014.

That was the PERFECT dining plan! Now it is either too much with Deluxe, last time we felt like we were overstuffed bolsters rolling from one meal to the next, or too little, only 1 TS without an appetizer.

I really wish they would bring back the old DP even if it was never offered for free....

I'm a stockholder also, but our stock has really not gone up. I've had mine for over 20 years and the value is pretty much the same.

I have to stay at the All Star Resort and need the Free Dining to be able to afford a yearly trip. The jump to Moderates is considerable, even with the Free Dining. That money pays for the airfare and rental car.

Here's hoping Disney doesn't do away with discounts.

Most people I know don't stay on site anyway. We, on the other hand, wouldn't go at all if not on site. The DDP is also no value to us. Used to like it but now too expensive for food that isn't what we'd prefer to order. Now we do mostly CS and a few TS (avoiding buffets) and are able to order/eat the way we like. The only way we'd ever do it again is if it were the best discount avail for our preferred dates.

Thanks Danny25 for the heads up!
Luckily we booked the Disney visa spring promo and saved $1300 at BCR!
This is my thinking too. No one can really believe that Disney was giving us something for nothing with the FD. We were certainly paying for it with increased prices across the board.
