DVC can also book ticketless dining, but they would not be using a room discount. This is the post I am referring to when I said you were mistaken...

You can use a room only discount to book a package, including a paid dining plan.
And you are mistaken. We got a pin code for a room only discount and the only thing we could add was tickets, even when we called Disney(and the phone cm was not a typical one, she did everything possible to help us). Room only discounts are for room only bookings. Also, the dining plan is considered a discount even when you pay in full for it, and you cannot combine discounts. If you book a room, tickets, and dining it becomes a package and is no longer a room only.

I have booked a package like this every year for the last 7 years with the exception of 2011 where there were no discounts for our dates. A paid dining plan is not considered a discount in terms of booking. Perhaps the confusion is in the wording. If there is a "room discount" offered (whether it is via PIN code, Disney Visa or public), you can 100% absolutely positively use it to book a package including tickets and a paid dining plan.

We have also booked a ' Room Only ' reservation many, many times, using a ' Room Only ' discount offer and then added tickets and the Dining Plan
Direct from mousesavers web site
"This is a 'room only' offer but tickets and dining plans can be added ( which will change your booking to a package, subject to package rules )

I can go online right now and book the room only special offer and still add on tickets and a dining plan. You end up with a package with a discounted room rate.

This info is not correct. We've done it before.

Just as many have already mentioned... I too have booked using a room only discount. I then added the dp to it. What you can not do is add free dinning to a room discount.

When Disney announces promotions is it usually on a certain day of the week or can it happen any time?

It can happen anytime but looking back on promotions it's typically Tuesday or Thursday. ***i think*** maybe someone else has a better answer

For the last promotion (FD for Sep 2 - 25), the DV offer started on Monday, May 6 and the GP offer started on Thursday, May 9.

How I understand it is that you are able to book a package (room/tickets/dining) and then if a 'room only discount' comes out, that discount will only be applied to the room amount part of your package. That's correct, right?

Yes, that's the way it works. Ro discounts work better for some while fd, if staying at a value or mod for larger families works better.

2010 was the last time we used a room only discount. We did not use the dining plan, but the CM offered us the chance to buy it when we called to apply the RO discount.

That's what I thought! Was just getting a bit confused, so to speak, with the last few pages of this thread!

I've never used a room only discount, but that is how I always understood it to work. Since we stay at Values most of the time, we take full advantage of free dining, which works best for us!
