I promise to get over this, but I just need to vent and whine for just a moment... We've gone last week of August three times (2007, 2010, 2011) and LOVED the free dining plan. Our family of four actually likes the break for a TS dinner and have had fun trying new places. So, based on history, we figured we could do the same thing again this year. Now that my youngest will be 11, we're all "adults" according to Disney. So we figured it worked out better to stay at a mod resort and get TS dining than to upgrade at a value. Priced out at $2359 for 6 nights at PO. GREAT!!!! Now we get the news that there's no more FD. With an 11-year-old who eats like a bird, there's no way it's worth $55 a day for DP. So we'll be going out of pocket. And even with a RO discount, it looks like it will have to be a Value for us. Kids don't mind at all-I would have preferred something different this time. Doing numbers, looks like we're going to be spending more for the value resort and OOP dining as we would have for mod and free dining. BIG DISAPPOINTMENT! We're still going, we're still going to have fun. But I feel like my balloon has popped and they're offering me one 1/10th of the size to replace it! A RO discount is better than nothing, but at a value resort it's not much at all. Am I the only one feeling cheated somehow....even though I know I haven't been?
