After reading another post, I decided to check the calculations on the WDW website for a package, vs. individual components. Here's what I found... 2 adults, 8 nights (Oct 15-23) Coronado Springs + 7 day base tickets (x2) + dining option. (x2) When I put all of those together, the quote for a package is: $2,306 Here's the pkg. quote for the same scenario with just room and tickets (no dining option): $1746 (The difference between the price with and w/o the dining is $560 - which comes to the exact price of the dining option @ $35 pp. HOWEVER... If I put in room only, the quote is: $1329.12 (includes tax) Tickets only: 2 x 7 day base ticket, $211.94 (includes tax) Added together the total for room and tickets bought separately is: $1753.06 After much research, I've been told that if you book a pkg. you are paying rack rate. Ok, but even assuming the rack pricing for the room ($166 per night with tax included)- if you add 7 day base tickets, and 2 x $35 pp for the dining option, the cost of this pkg. SHOULD be: $1822 Wow, this is a $484 difference! How do they justify the discrepancies in cost? How can they say the dining option is only $35 per person? This just doesn't add up. What am I missing?
