So excited for August 1st now! We're booked to check in October 19th at AoA in 2 family suites..

..With a party of 6 adults, a 13, 12, 9 and 8 year old boys.. the free dining will be helpful..

But what's the upgrade difference from the one included at the value resorts, to the regular one?

The upgrade per night is right around $19 for adults and $4 for kids 9 and under.

To figure the best deal, add about $19 per day for adults and $3 something per day for child and that will be the upgrade cost for a Value. Also, keep in mind that the Little Mermaid rooms are usually excluded from discounts. Good Luck!!! And have FuN!! Disney Cruise AND WDW, how AWESOME!!!

Just to add: This year we are staying AoA suites because we thought it was worth the extra money. In the end, go with your heart!!!
Yeah the split stay with the cruise in the middle kinda messes stuff up a bit. But we'll be there thurs fri and sat night after our cruise so that's the 3 nights taken care of. I really want to try the POR princess rooms and I figure if we get the free dining I can then justify staying there. It's 4 adults with 2 of us in each room. Otherwise it's 221 a night x 2 for the stya with no free dining. I dunno Iwish I could just rent DVC points again and not deal with this LOL. Min you if room only discounts come out for that time period too that may change things a fair bit. We may stay at POR before the cruise with room only do US/IOA and then WDW when we get back.

Thanks, that's going to offer some good savings for the group, at least!

For a few minutes I entertained the thought of going at Thanksgiving instead of our non-free DP dates in October. We would have saved over $1500 with free dining and airfare difference. Unfortunately the idea of huge crowds just won't let me pull the trigger. We are both teachers and can only take off on school breaks.

I am not an expert at this but I think you might. Last year we booked prior to a ticket increase and then FD was released. When we modified reservation we paid a small amount for that change in price.

You will have to pay the difference in ticket price, which was about 3%...

Sorry about that. Yes, you would have to pay the difference for the price increase of the tickets. However, that would be more than offset by free dining.

I'm booked at Pop. 2 adults, 2kids(4 and 14mos). FD falls in my dates. My trip is paid and I went with DDP.
Question is I was thinking of going with Ft. Wilderness Cabin for $800 more. This is our first visit. Go with the cabins or do you recommend a different mod or just stay value?
Decisions, decisions!!
