Okay, I'm dense and new to this, so please help me get this straight... we're going to Port Orleans Riverside on Sept. 23-29 + getting 4 day base tickets.

If we eschew the FL resident rates and go for the package deal, we get free dining.

This is expected to include:
1 refillable mug per person
1 snack credit per person per day
1 counter service per person per day
1 table service per person per day

Is this correct? Because if that's true we're saving about $700 - $800, which is cool.

If that's correct, I have 3 questions:
1) is there anywhere on here I can find a link to see what restaurants & counter service places are usually part of that deal (I understand it is not entirely confirmed yet, I just would like an idea).

2) can you use your table service for lunch rather than dinner? And get counter service for dinner (if we have a bigger meal we like to do it in the middle of the day)

3) if you don't make ADRs for table service (we're not that picky) is it impossible to find a place to sit down and eat?

Sorry if I sound stupid but I get easily confused... as FL residents we usually have APs and go for day trips and campouts, this is the first time we'll be staying at a moderate resort, or doing any kind of plan/package deal.

There is definitely a list if TS or QS spots out there. Simple Google search would work.

You can book lunch and dinner at qs or ts as you please. In most cases a restaurant will be either TS fir both lunch and dinner or QS for both, an exception being Be Our Guest.

Depending on when you go it can be very difficult to find places you want and just walk right up without a reservation. You can always find somewhere but it may not be where you want to eat. I went last September which is a very "slow" season and most places I wanted were booked up!

Yes, this is correct.

1. Virtually all Disney owned restaurants in the parks and resorts and even most non Disney owned resorts at downtown Disney, very few exclusions. Lots of good dining info on allearsnet.com

2. You can use your TS credit for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

3. ADRs will be a necessity. Most places will not even be taking walk ups during a FD promo - especially the character meals and popular restaurants. I highly suggest you check availability and make ADRs now.

Don't mention it...I think we have all been a bit rattled lately. I'm ready for my trip already.

Oh, ADRs are already made!!!
