Can you get the free dining with an annual pass?

You can but you still need to buy two day passes for everyone in the room, so it really diminishes the savings.

In other news that serves little to no value whatsoever....well, maybe a some, mediocre at best....or perhaps a bit more or a bit less.

Rapid Fill mugs are coming in a few weeks to Disney Resorts. These will finally be encoded with a chip and will allow you to purchase a select number of days rather than a whole trip if you wish. The prices are as follows.

$8.99 for 1 day
$11.99 for 2 days
$14.99 for 3 days
$17.99 for length of stay (4+ days)

The interesting news is you will now be able to use them at any of the resorts and not just your own.

This is mostly moot for us though because it will still be included for the length of your stay as part of the dining plan...so we will all get one the same as usual, but now would technically be "legal" if we used it in another resort. This mostly stops those who bring their same mugs year after year to refill for free.

So, all the same, but mostly different and always exciting, except when its rather boring....are you confused yet??? Good!!!!

Carry-on....but only one bag please...and it must fit under the seat in front of you.

(if you can't tell...crazy cheerful Joe is back!!!)

rapid fill is a weird name for it...
I do like that you can use it at other resorts though.

So even more expensive on the mugs now for longer stays...I think I may just do a Garden Grocer order at this point for breakfast food and soda.

If you don't currently have an AP, you could buy a regular ticket to get the free dining then 'upgrade' to an AP when you get to the parks. They should credit whatever you paid for your existing ticket towards the AP.

However, once you have the AP you won't be eligible for free dining without buying regular tickets. But with an AP you get a discount at a lot of restaurants and they often have better discounts on room only promos.

All that said I do NOT have an AP but I've been doing the 'Disney math' on it quite a bit and if I ever had 2 trips planned within 1 year or ever stayed longer than a week I would definitely get one.

Are these the free mugs you get with your dining plan now? And can you only use them at resorts and not CS places in the parks?

I'm pretty sure you can only use them at the resorts, not in the parks. On the bright side, at least you don't have to worry about carrying the mugs around with you in the park.

So we are currently booked at POR from 11/10 through 11/17. The "alleged" dates of FD for November are 11/11 onward. Does this mean I would get FD for every day except my check in day, which does not fall within those dates?

You would have to book a room only reservation for the night of the 10th, and book a FD package for the 11th-17th. You would have to check out and back in on the 11th, which comes with the risk of a room change, but if you link the 2 reservations, they will try their best to keep you in the same room. I would pack an overnight bag for that night instead of unpacking a big suitcase, just in case.

Exactly what smitch said... I have done this exact thing last year although my extra night i had at all star sports and then the next day checked in to CSR to start my FD package. it wasn't too bad because we did what smitch suggested and packed an overnight bag.

p.s. if you wanted to avoid that you could also just add that extra day at the end of your trip so 11/11 - 11/18. Just a thought.
