I had to call Disney today to change our address and phone number so I checked but no pin codes. So I went online to disney's site and tottled around. My sister keeps getting codes but her husband won't take her right now. Here's hoping that all our dreams come true!!!!


You do know that even if you got a free dining code you would only be able to use one, 40% off the room or free dining paying rack rate for the room.

I had a trip planned the beginning of October with the regular free dining promotion, then last month received the pin code for Oct-December. We switched to early December, hoping there would be fewer crowds in the restaurants... looks like that won't happen since so many people are getting this pin and it possibly going to the general public!

I'm not sure if this has been answered, or not.

How much would it cost if 4 adults received the FREE DINING plan, while staying at a value resort? Would it still be the rack of $80-$100 for the room per night. Or do they charge per adult?

Thanks so much!

Are they all adults 18 and over or are some "Disney Adults" ages 10-17?

If there are more than 2 adults age 18 and over in the same value resort room, you will have a $10/per extra adult/per night added to the room rate. So, if all 4 of the party is age 18 or over, the price of the room will $20 more per night. If there are only 2 adults age 18 and over and the other 2 are just "Disney Adults" age 10-17, there will be no upcharge.

Hi!

Thanks so much for your quick reply. So, if I did my math correctly and the price of the value is, say, $100 (using round number for this); it would only cost each adult $25.00 per night including the Free dining plan? Now that sounds like a STEAL!

PS -- Yes, the adults are all 30 and over also.

If the regular price of the value is $100, then your price would be $120/nt (room and DDP) since you'll have 2 extra adults.

IF the regular price of the value is $80, then yes, you're figures are correct as it would be $100/nt with the the 2 adults added on. Now, that doesn't include tickets or tips for the meals.

Yep. That's what I was figuring. Thanks again for your reply, it's very much appreciated.

ok quick question from a 1st time planner...

I recieved a pin for free dinning about a month ago. I called my TA from Dream Unlimited and she applied it to my ressie...it is reflected in my total etc. But today I recieved the same pin? Does that usually happen? Or do you think Disney doesnt realize I have already taken advantage of the offer. I would hate for something to go wrong etc...if i call disney they will be able to see my ressie even though the TA made it?

Thanks in advance

No they will not be able to see your ressie until 5 days prior! When booked through a travel agent they own the ressie until it's time! I would definitely not worry about it! I heard of this happening before you should be fine if you called anyone you would have to call Dreams Unlimited but it sem like you already know it's fine so you should be set!

I am aware of that. I'm only saving right over $200 with my 40% off and even though I didn't crunch numbers for free dining yet, I do believe that the free dining offer would save me more. If so, I would switch to the free dining.

I hope I get that one because I hope my answer will help them determine to offer it again next year. Honestly, we would not be going to the parks this year if FD weren't offered. I am thankful it is offered and hope it is offered again next year.

I was on the WDW site earlier this week when a survey window popped up asking me if I was going on a trip in the near future. I responded yes and was asked if I would participate in a survey when I came back. Its scheduled for my return and I too will stress that we could not have gone without the FD offer. We originally wanted Christmas time but we can't do it without FD.

We would not be going either without free dining. Hoping for a bounceback when we are there in August so we can book for next year. We probably won't go next year if there is no FDP.

Free dining was released through December 17th for Disney Visa cardholders today!

It's the quickservice plan for value resorts and regular plan for moderates and deluxe.
