Another off-beat question that came to mind today...

We have 5 people, we booked at Port Orleans so we can use the extra bed for our youngest, who's 10. Plus of course he pays full price for park tickets.

Now if they offer free dining, do we get it for all 5 of us?

Even though the room tecnically says "sleeps 4" they had that extra bed and said we could put a child in it for 5. But would they let all 5 of us get the free dining? How does that work?

There is no way we can do 2 rooms, or upgrade resorts to a room for 6, that's not even an option.

All 5 get dining. Dining plans are Magic Your Way plus Dining Packages, so those are tickets + dining. So anyone on the package gets park admission plus dining credits.

The flip side is when dining isn't free, you can't choose to buy dining for just some people on the package -- everyone on the reservation/package has to be included on the dining plan and there is a charge for all. You cannot purchase a dining plan for just 2 of 5 people and split the food.

For the veterans, I know Danny and Black announced the FD offer will be available to book starting May 9th for the General Public, but when do they actually ANNOUNCE it? Is it also May 9th, or will they announce it earlier saying "bookings from May 9th to X for stays September 2-25"?

Thanks!

They usually announce the day of the Disney Visa offer that it will also be available to general public on such n such a day, but that is usually all the advance notice they give.

Do TAs or Disney Specialists get any advanced notice to the Visa date?

Don't worry, if you were around for the summer offer you'll remember that it was announced here pretty fast when visa offers became available. I logged on just after 7am and already posts about it being active.

No, those rooms technically sleep 5, that's why they book up so quickly, because all the families of 5 want them because they are the cheapest way for a family of 5 to stay on site. I would be on the phone first thing because those Alligator Bayou rooms will be some of the first to sell out at POR for FD.

Question Hotels

Which hotel is the cheapest for a family of 6 to stay in (All adults)?

A family suite at All Star Music would be the cheapest way to be in one room, but 2 rooms at any of the All Stars would actually be cheaper.
