Saving Money on Disney Vacations since 2006
- Sep 6, 2014
One thought...since you are upgrading to standard dining, have you considered looking at a moderate resort (maybe CBR or CSR) to see what that would cost?Your math is spot on for value resorts! I just checked (we upgraded to the standard plan) so I did a package exactly like ours with no discounts and subtracted out the discount you put and its the same we paid.
We wound up saving a small amount (about 150) compared to our previous package which was discounted room and tickets but not on dining. When we compare our previous package without the dining plan but with what we had set aside for food it was only $90 more. Can someone check my math though and tell me if we really came out ahead?
Standard dining plan, pop century standard view 2 adults, 2 kids ages 4 and 12. 5 day park tickets base
Original package our room was $999 and tickets were 1450.08
Stay play dine all the same but with dining plan 4364.16 (with an upgrade to standard plan)
We planned character meals before the dining plan
