Please explain half board?

I've never done any sort of dining plan (at any park) and I tried looking through old posts, but still not understanding just how they work.

We're considering taking advantage of the new 25% off/free half board offer, and staying at the DLH. Which from my understanding, would include the 'premium' voucher, usable at such place like Inventions, Walt's etc...the expensive restaurants as well as the not so.

This is where I get a little confused...do you then (with reservations, I'm sure, busy summer) just turn in said voucher for inventions dinner buffet (is this the character one, as well?) with no difference in money owed (unless you order more drinks or alcohol, I'm guessing)? Same for the Wild West show?

Or Walt's? Where you order from a 3 course set menu and a drink...there is nothing more to pay? But you can also use the voucher at a less expensive restaurant, but then you're losing out a bit..correct?

I'm trying to do the math on a stay at DLH and attempting to see if this offer is worth the cost even with the free half board (3 nights...2adults/an 11 year old...1700¬).

Yes you are understanding the half board premium vouchers perfectly. on a 3~night booking you get 3 vouchers each to use over the duration of your stay.

Thank you Elaine!

So if one wanted to eat at Inventions every night using their premium voucher, one could? And not pay anything extra (minus anything you opted for beyond the buffet/1 drink)? Or even Auberge?

Not that I would...lol...but this half board business is so foreign to me.

Does an 11 year old fall under a kid's meal, or does the voucher apply to an adult prices?

Yes you could do inventions dinner 3 nights running with your premium vouchers if you wanted to, or the auberge etc.
your 11year old gets a childs voucher.
