I assume you checked both the room only and the FD discounts to compare? Sometimes with only 2 people and staying in a deluxe, especially GF, you may save more with the room only. Especially since you don't really need the two day tickets.

You probably already know, but let me clarify, to apply a free dining discount to your stay your at be booked at a Disney owned resort and booked under a Magic Your Way package that included room, tickets and dining. There is a 3 night minimum and a 2 day base ticket requirement and you have to being paying full price, with no other discounts.

Thanks for the info, and yeah I am aware that we have to be staying on property for a minimum of 3 nights with a 2 day bass ticket. I think we will forgo the free dining and try for discounts on our rooms and then get TIW instead.

Thanks! I think since we cannot use any other discounts on the room, tickets, etc. for the FD that we will instead use the discount on the resort lodging. Also, we are looking into TIW as well. We love dining at Disney and anything would help! Thanks again

Praying all morning. Woke up to the news and just heart broken. Jumped on here for a little good news seeing people active and others being ok.

In Holly Springs, NC here. I hear the news about the tornado in OK on my way to work. When I heard that at least 20 children had died in the storm, I cried. There was a really bad tornado that passed through my area a couple years ago. It left a trail of devastation for miles. I was very blessed that it moved across the street & into the woods when it passed by my neighborhood. It went back across the street shortly after that.
My thoughts & prayers go out to the people in OK.

Sylkie, that storm you reference (April 16, 2011) wiped out my son's school (Greene County Middle School) and lots of homes and businesses in our county. The hallways of the school (where the children would have been) became like wind tunnels sucking books, desks, chairs, lockers and most everything else out ~ those items were found miles away from the school. Although my son is now in high school, the middle school students are still in mobile units ~ hope to have the new school completed for students and staff when school starts back this fall. Thankfully, that storm came through on a Saturday. If it had been during the week, our story would have had a much different ending ~ my son would have likely been on the baseball field as that was the time for his PE class/baseball practice. The field house (where they likely would have taken shelter) was completely flattened and we never found most of his and his teammate's baseball equipment. When I saw the news about the school in OK last night I broke down in tears ~ this could have been our story but I'm so thankful it wasn't. My prayers go out to all that are suffering in OK but especially to those parents who lost children ~ I cannot begin to imagine their pain!

Wow - before reading your post, TH Mom, I hadn't really thought about how much worse the tornado that came through our area could have been if it had come through a day or 2 before it did. I can hardly imagine what those parents must be going through now - not only those that are suffering the loss of their child, but also those who have yet to find any that are missing.

My heart aches for them ~ I gave my three kids an extra hug this morning.

Doesn't matter now! I called and there actually was a PIN associated with my mom's name for FD who happens to be going with us! What a huge blessing. And the CM was the nicest person I've ever talked to on the phone. She was just as excited for me as I was.

Awesome - glad you were able to get the FD.
