    Does anyone yet know how this new "save $600 on a five night six day" stacks up against a FD promotion?

    I was just curious if anyone did the math.

    It's 30% off RO rate - but the dates we are going, it's only for the Royal Rooms. I would double check if your dates are available for other rooms.

    We are staying for 8 nights, and the discount basically gives us 5 of those days free dining. It seems similar to a discount I saw on the threads being offered internationally, where adults are paying kid price for dining. Doing the math, it still stacks up to a better discount than the RO for us. Very excited that this finally came out. I was losing my mind!!!

    Definitely need some math here. Which a better deal? 30% off s week at a moderate or free dining OR this save up to $600 DEAL? COULD the 600 deal be the next incarnation of 'free dining'?

    Is the 30% off on the cost of the room or whole package?

    It is two tyotally different deals. The percent off one is for the room portion. You can add dining, but you pay for it full price.

    Then there is the $600 dollar deal (not really $600, but best way to describe it). That one seems to be the adults pay kids price deal. It is titled something like kids of all ages.

    I do not think free dining will come out. I think this is the new version of free dining, but you never know.

    I too believe there will not be free dining as it looks like there is a mass jumping at these deals and some rooms are unavailable. Hard to say as i was already wrong once this week about discounts.

    Only the LM rooms are excluded from the Stay Play Dine offer. The Lion king, cars, and finding nemo rooms are included

    To be honest, I am not as excited as many of you about the Stay Play Dine offer. I am really hoping FD is still in the cards when they release summer deals come April/May.

    The Stay Play Dine is the equivelant of 5 days worth of FD. Because the savings are capped at about $600, those staying longer than a week do not reap the benefit.
