While the promo fairs are gone, They are still offering great deals, so if you are near Wilmington, definitely check it out. They only fly 2x per week, so it has to 'fit' your schedule, but for us. Flying Tuesday - Tuesday it's perfect. They fly the route once on Tuesday and once on Saturday.

Hope you score an awesome deal too! Good luck!
Do you have backup plans? I had heard that one of the major issues is that if the flight is cancelled, its cancelled.

How early can I call on May 9th to add Free Dining to our package? Is there a certain time they will open the phone lines?

Free dining saves us so much money, I'm not sure we can even go without it. A room discount doesn't even come close to what we would save with free dining. Congrats to all who it helped!
This is probably an odd suggestion, but.....
If you are just off by a day, or so, might part of the family be able to go earlier to check in for FD? or would travel changes/logistics negate the savings? Just a thought....

I have been waiting to hear if there would be free dining or not for awhile now. Thank you so much for this info! This is our 1st trip to WDW and our original plans were from Aug. 31-Sept 7 but our dates are flexible so we are changing them to Sept. 2-8th. We have even thought about changing them to Sept 14-21 but still debating because then the kids will miss 5 days instead of 4 from school.

No .... But we figured at those rates it was worth the risk. We have friends who have used Frontier on a similar route out of Trenton multiple times with no trouble. Of course, we are aware of the possibility, but are also confident enough to have booked. Lets hope we're right! I

Of course we want to take advantage of the free dining as it would save us quite a bit of money. We were thinking of either doing the room only rez for the first 3 nights and then switching to the package for the last 5, OR staying the first 3 nights still on the MYW pacakge at AS Music and then booking a new rez for the last 5 nigths for the Ft Wilderness cabins which would include the DDP without having to upgrade from the QSP like we would if we stayed at the AS Music ... any thoughts. How awful would it be to have to change resorts? How does your luggage get moved if we have no car? How do the tickets work -- would we get 2 separate cards and/or wristbands ... which is the least hassle and/or the most cost effective. Argghhh Thanks for your help!
Your cheapest and easiest route will probably be to book 2 connecting rooms at value resort and book your first 3 nights as room only and then re-check in on your 4th night. You can pick up your package tickets up to 3 days early at Downtown Disney or any of the guest relations at any of the parks. There's ways a possibility you would have to change rooms and they would move your luggage for you, but they will most likely keep you in your room. Even with having to pay the upgrade at the value, you are still going to come out ahead from staying at the cabins, plus you will have more room and a 2nd bathroom. Plus I find the cabins way overpriced for what they are.

I am very excited to see this information! Again, thanks to Danny and Black for keeping us informed. I have a question. I'm new to the free dining promo and I think I've seen what the TS meal plan is, but would like to know what the QS meal plan includes. We want to compare the costs between a stay at Pop and a stay at the Poly.
