Horray! I just booked our Honeymoon at CSR from September 12th-26th and got my free dining! This saved us $1120! Applying for a Disney Visa just to get this early was great. The dining plan did include 1 TS, 1CS, and 1 Snack. I thought it would be the one that has the 2 CS and 1 snack but the very kind lady told me they never use that one for free dining. I'm very excited!

If you already have the bounceback free dining, why would you change it? Not that its any of my business - I'm just curious!

alternative pirate, of course, it depends on your travel party, ticket type, resort level, length of stay, etc. but mine was $1,998 for 9 nights at POP (value resort) with 8 day Park Hoppers for 2 adults, DS13 and DS6. Awesome price!

oops...sorry...didn't see your resort preference there already...mine's a value instead of a moderate

Is there anything better than Free Dining and Fastpasses?

How many people are in your family? How many kids? What are their ages? What level resort are you wanting to stay at? All of those variables come into play. If you want to price out a package, just go to the WDW website and put in the dates for your package WITHOUT adding the dining plan and that is the cost that your package will be with the free dining code applied to it (also remember that the website automatically adds the preferred room choice and the Waterparks and more option, so if you don't won't those you will need to adjust those for the correct pricing info).

I've never been there for it before. This is only the second time I've ever been to Disney, and it will be my daughter's first time. She'll be 3 1/2.

There are entire threads on this forum devoted to what is considered a "snack" and what is not. I don't think it is real strict, but some things are not allowed with the snack credit.

When you guys are booking do you have to pay for the entire trip up front or are you doing the 200 dollar deposit?

Same here. DH, DS13 and I have been one time in 2000, but this will be DS6's first trip, and we've never been to MNSSHP either. I've seen some really cool pics and read some good things about it, though, so we may give it a try.

$200 deposit. I figure, why let Disney hang on to my $$ any longer than required? Especially if I can make .001% interest in my savings account!
