Ok so I am starting to plan my Oct 2014 trip and am considering two different possibilities. Early yes....but I love planning. We will be staying 7 nights. The last two days would be spent at Universal. Option one would be to rent DVC points at a discount at AKL for a value studio and pay OOP for meals (We did with last time with great success). OR we will book a magic your way stay at Coronado Springs with hopes of free dining when we stay. I have tallied the totals for each option by looking at where we are most likely to eat if we end up paying OOP. If we get the free dining option the extra credits we will have for the universal days will be spend having breakfasts and upgrading some of our dining to signature restaurants. Here are the numbers. What do you think? Am I forgetting important details? Option A: Renting a DVC members points to rent an AKL value studio and pay for meals OOP. Hotel: $897 Food: Disney-$989 Universal-$260 Park tickets: Disney-$1080 Universal-$596 Flight: $1600 Total: $5422 Option B: Book MYW trip at Coronado Springs with FD included (hopeful) Hotel + Disney tickets: $2607 Universal tickets: $596 Universal Food: $260 Flight $1600 Total $5063 I used this years prices because, of course, next years are not published. Of course I kind of assume the expected price increases will kind of be relative so might not make much difference. In the event we booked the Coronado Springs and free dining wasn't offered we probably rebook with a room discount somewhere and cut our losses. If you were in my shoes which would you choose?
