Fultons Crab House (2TS)
Wolfgang Puck upstairs dining room (2TS)

Rainforest Cafe at AK and DD

Thanks for the info!

I do have one question - we c/i on April 14 which is during "peak season" but obviously the rest of our stay is during "regular season". Will Disney charge peak for just the one night and then the rest would be regular?

You will be charged the peak season rate for the 1 day and the regular rate for the rest of your stay. I hope this helps! :)

    Teppan Edo is not operated by Disney. Look for it to be added in December.

    No, it's not a problem. Just make the ADR. If it comes out that Teppan Edo won't take the plan in 2012 (which is not likely) than cancel the ADR.

    Is it just me, or does the increase to the DxDP seem unreasonable given the plan didn't change at all? I mean, I can see how they can try to justify the increase to the DDP with the addition of the mug. This just seems like a bigger hike than I remember in the past...I could be wrong (I am terrible with numbers.).

    Either way, it has now surpassed what I think is a deal. I will be throughly enjoying what appears to be my last fling with the DxDP this September. :cool1:

    Crystal Palace (which is Disney-operated) is in the Magic Kingdom section under "A Buffet with Character at Crystal Palace" (near the bottom of the MK listing).

    Relatively, the price increases on the DxDDP are lower than DDP (~8% DxDDP to 12% DDP), the addition of the holiday season makes it seem (and actually be) even larger though, (~13% for adults, ~17% for kids). The DDP price jumps are the steepest though, (~12% A, ~25% C, with Holiday at ~11% A, 23% C).

    Of course, past jumps with DxDDP were likely much smaller in both percentage and raw numbers. I don't have those numbers though :(. (I'm sure I could find them if I could be bothered, but frankly, I'm not :p).

    Mathematically, DxDDP still works out to be a value if you're willing to put in the time planning and eating (as well as the waistline!). DDP is getting very slim. (And the value estimations take into account a historically high base increase of about 5%, historically it's been 2-3% per year over several years).

    or do you have to pay tax on the listed price
    No, tax is included in the listed price. Note that you also do not have to pay tax on top of items purchased with dining credits since it's already figured into the price (you will be responsible for it on items not covered though).

    Is this the same for DTD restaurants? I thought it was weird that there was only 1 or 2 listed in the handout. So, most likely more will be added in December?

    Thanks!!!

    Yes it is

    It's best to use the current years restaurant guide as your guide for right now. Make your reservations anticipating it will be the same restaurants as this year and you will likely be very happy that you did. :goodvibes

    A few questions-

    Will Fulton's be added at a later time? Does it require one or two credits?

    I am aware that Narcosses requires 2 credits. Are there certain items on the menu that are not covered by the Dining Plan?

    Has O'Hana's dinner been changed to 2 credits?

    Thanks! princess:
