I guess this is the one I was looking at. But why is late October blacked out?

Can someone tell me per adult what it would cost to upgrade? And if I put this on my Disney Visa does this qualify me for the 6 months no interest?

Disney math! Ugh!

Late October isn't blacked out. MID October is blacked out. Many schools have Fall breaks in mid-October, and it is usually dates in the first and second (and sometimes into the third) full weeks that have been blacked out. This year's room discount bounceback picked back up on Sunday October 20, and historically the GP FD offer picks back up the Friday before the bounceback date, so Friday October 18. Hoping it follows the same pattern it has the last few years.

Yes. You just pay the difference of the upgrade per person.

It's just the difference between the 2 plans. About $18 per night, per adult and about $3 per child, per night.

And yes you would qualify for the 6 months no interest.

I remember the campsites being included in free dining one year. I don't remember when it was, but it was a long time ago. People were booking campsites to get the free dining and then staying elsewhere.

Thanks! Many schools have Fall Breaks, especially those that go year round. We don't go year round, but our schools start in mid August and go through the first week of June. We get a week off in October, 3 days for Thanksgiving, 2 weeks at Christmas, a four day weekend (Fri/Mon) for Presidents' Day, and a week in March/April for Spring Break.

Zip a dee do dah! Zip a dee aey...my oh my what a WONDERFUL day!!! : I have been doing this every since I first heard this great news!!! I had just crunched the numbers last night...as a family of 5 where 2 of our 3 kids are now adults, I wasn't sure how everything would shake out...I calculated out how much we would pay out of pocket for our meals if we did not purchase the plan (as we don't typically eat as much as the plan includes, and our 11 and 12 year old certainly would not order an adult meal all of the time . . . ) and while the estimated cost for us is signifcantly less than the actual cost of the plan....including tips....I wasn't sure how it would work out. But, when I "guestimated" a 20% discount at POR as that tends to be what they offer, the "Free Dining" at a total discount of -$1676.76 for our family is definately the better deal.

The stars have all aligned for us this year...we scored $576 round trip airfare....for ALL FIVE of us from the Philadelphia area!!!! Hope the weather cooperates too.

Yahooo!!!! Wishing all of you equally bountiful savings!!!

So we already have flights to arrive on 8/31. We leave 9/8. We are a family of 5 and planning to stay at POR. What is my best option to take advantage of free dining? Book two nights room only then start a package on 9/2? We have plans to go to a park on 9/1. Will it still be possible to get tickets early once they roll out all the magic band stuff? I appreciate any thoughts or suggestions.

I'm so disappointed with that offer. We go the same time every year we go and this year was going to be 8/27-9/3. If there isn't anything offered at all I might just have to skip and look at the Outer Banks.
