True, but those are the Disney facts ;-)

$200 deposit. If you've already booked prior, then just put another $200 on the card.

Does anyone know if free DDP will be offered in August (as previous) for UK travellers.
Unfortunately the UK and US free dining promos never have any correlation - always different release dates and booking dates and usually different levels of plans for different resort. Did you ask on the UK section of the boards?

When I called at 7a this morning- I was armed and ready with my Disney VISA number. The CM told me that since I have all ready paid a $200 deposit on the ressie I did not need to pay another $200 on the Disney VISA. Also the $200 that I paid a few weeks ago when I booked- was not paid with Disney VISA. The CM just told me that I may need to show my Disney VISA at check in.

I was a ligttle but bumbed to switch from AoA LM to POFQ but free dining for 9 nights for 4 people (3 Disney adults) is totally worth it!!

You definitely do not have to show your Disney Visa at check in. I can't believe she didn't have you put down another $200 payment with your DV card? That's definitely not the policy during a DV FD promo - glad you got your discount though :-)

Thanks for the quick response. So if I run a quote for room/tickets on the site now for September that should be the same cost as with free dining (pending availability for FD of course)? Just want to be sure they aren't using another rate for free dining.

Also the email we got said it has to be a 5 night/6 day package. Can anyone confirm?

Additionally, can you book 2 reservations for rooms/packages at the same time? If we go forward we will take my parents along but in a different room

Sorry for all the questions, just want to have all my ducks in a line and can't stand not being able to see it for myself in black and white. Plus don't want to wait till Thursday if at all possible.

I disagree. AoA Suites are still cheaper than WL and AKL rooms and you can put 6 adults in an AoA Suite without incurring any extra adult charges. You are getting a suite at a value price.

I haven't gotten the email from Disney Visa but got it from all the other Disney sites I subscribe to. lol

We saved over $3800...I believe it is closer to $4000 if not over for 4 adults and 3 kids under 10... Our Oldest DD is 10 so she is a Disney adult. We are going for 14 days. I love FD unless we get a 40% off RD for the YC, then we do CL we save more that way. You just can't beat using the DDP...I don't get why people are against it. I've done the math it saves us so much money. We leave extra money for a tip...higher than the 20% Disney recommends because we are saving money anyways and we always tip 20% when we go out. Unless it is bad service...which we have been very fortunate not to have a Disney! We always have the best servers!

Doing the happy dance. Couldn't call until 8:20, was only on hold for 10 minutes. I couldn't believe it. Saved over $1200. Thinking of using part of that $$ to upgrade.
