Or you can list them as 18 and you will automatically have 2 separate reservations and each room would/could have their own dining and package components. You can still have the reservations linked and still get connecting rooms, but a third adult (18 and over) will automatically separate it into 2 separate reservations.
If they're both 18 and they don't want to upgrade the dining plan, you would want it as their own resie as in option 2.

I used Small World and my agent was on vacation in Hawaii when FD began for my December 2012 dates. She called on day #1 and got it for me despite being off! Hope you get it!!!

Yes we are booked at the CR in August but when reading about FD we thought about rebooking in September for the savings if it was worth it. i think we saved around 800.00 with the 30% discount compared to the 1080.00 for the dinning. maybe a little more savings but not enough to to change our reservation.

If you are willing to change dates, just ask Disney to do the math for you. They can give you exact quotes on both options and then you can decide.

I agree. A good TA will be on the phones at 7am when they begin taking reservations, not waiting until their office opens at 9am.

Did you calculate your room discount with the dining plan added in (paid for of course)? If not, then you would need to figure your cost of food whether or not you buy the plan.

A Disney Reservations manager gave me that exact type of information a few years ago when we were deciding to bring my MIL and I called to add her to the reservation. The CM manager TOLD me to list my 70 year old MIL as a 17 years old, so as not to cause us to have 2 reservations numbers and it would be easier to keep up with everyone's credits. You aren't cheating Disney out of anything, as there is only an up charge if there is 3 or more adults in a single room, so that's not even an issue when booking 2 rooms.

A free dining discount will save you about $220 per night, so on a 7 night stay that would save you about $1540 of full price rack rates.

Thanks for the info. So, even if I'm paying for everything, our dining plans would be separate (not pooled credits) if we have 2 separate/adjoining rooms? 2 kids are 18

How many nights? A FD discount on a 7 night stay would be about $1540 - that's a pretty good chunk of change.

I think I should start a Disney travel agency when I retire. What a fun second life that would be.
I wonder how you get into that? I'd love to plan Disney trips!

Hmmmmmm, that's not what I was anticipating. It's going to be a long day of figuring everything out before I have to book tomorrow am. Sheesh. (And of course I still have to figure out which resort to choose)

OK...let me make sure I understand something. I booked FD for Sep 2-7, and have a RO for Sep 1. Tickets are with the package obviously and I have 6 day tickets booked. If I changed it to 7 day tickets, I could go pick them up on Sep 1 at DD or WDW guest services and start using my 7 day ticket on Sep 1?
