    Does anyone know of something big going on the week of October 9th - 16th that I missed on the website? Just wondering why if the suspected dates are correct, why that week is blacked out?

    Columbus Day weekend. Fall breaks at many schools. There is also a big convention in October. Sometimes there's no readily identifiable reason. Sometimes they just have enough sale bookings during that time already.

    I apologize if this has already been covered. I didn't read the entire thread. Can someone tell me if I can use a table service credit at a quick service counter? Does that make sense? I would "take" FD if it was offered, but we'll be staying deluxe and I don't want to/think we would eat one table service meal each day.

    There have been reports in the past that some guests have been able to convert TS credits to TS credits, but it's not "official" Disney policy.

    Please see this thread for all the Free Dining Info and Guidelines:

    Does anyone know if you can get the quick serve dining plan if you are staying at the poly or other deluxe hotel? And if not, can you use your table service vouchers at a walk up? Im just concerned if we have a change in plans or and dont want to dine sit down style everyday, how would you utilize your table service vouchers?

    Thank you , Lisa

    There are people much more knowledgeable than I, but since no one has answered, I'll tell you what I think. The hotel you stay at is what determines your dining plan so if at a deluxe you would get the "regular" dining plan that includes the table service credits. But I've read while not a "policy", Disney will accept table service credits at a counter service.

    I'm undecided about whether I want the dining plan or a room discount. I always had a package in the past with the dining included and since it was my DH and myself we really made it work for us. We ate at character meals, signature dining, and table service all the way. Now with kids we won't be able to take advantage of some of the signature meals and my kids want character meals which are pricey. Any advice?

    Why not just go with whatever saves you the most money?

    Because it was started on April 29th of 2010. Sometimes someone will do a search for free dining and the first thread that comes up they post it and revive an old thread, instead of searching for the current thread, which is here:

    I was told and by doing the math if you are staying at a value or a moderate the free dining is the best deal and for the deluxes the room discount is the best. If you like the table service meals then free dining would maybe be better. I agree the cost of eating at Disney sit down restaurants is expensive. It cost us at least 70.00 to 90.00 dollars each time and that was for 2 adults and a child. OOOPs old post I didnt even look at the date LOL

    We'll be traveling with 3 children - ages 5-9. We'll be booking a room that accommodates 5 people and will be buying park tickets for 5 people. Does that mean we would get the free dining plan for all 5 people? (It said rates based on two adults, one junior - whatever that is - and one child.) If the free dining plan will only work for 4 people, will we be able to buy a dining plan for the third child?

    You would only get free dining if your check in date falls within the free dining period. Every member of your party would get free dining in this case.
