I've read that you can only do it now if changing room category or resort, not if staying in the same room.

Segmenting now ended.

Thanks
We tried segmenting our stay at the Beach Club this March and was told segmenting a reservation has now end. For us, it's just too much food and too restrictive for a 14-day stay.

ditto

We got our booking segmented last April but couldn't book dining plan then as they hadn't priced up 2012 yet.
When I finally got round to asking them again (some time in September)-the new rule had JUST been enforced so I missed out and was none too happy!!

I won't be booking DDP either this year and have decided to try out some non-disney restaurants too.

A pity really as had I been permitted to book DDP for segmented days when I booked my accommodation, Disney would have got the business, and because it would've saved me a bit, I probably would have usedthose 'savings' to eat on-site for the non DDP days.

So their loss really

We can recommend a very good non-Disney restaurant about 10-minutes away, we always use it once on every trip even if we have the DDP for the duration.

It's the Villa de Flora Restaurant at Gaylord Palms, a buffet menu inspired by Mediterranean cuisine and cost about $33.00, includes soft drink and coffee.

Here's a link to their menu http://www.gaylordhotels.com/gaylord...eFloraMenu.pdf

As far as I'm aware you can still segment your DDP but you have to be changing resort so you have different booking references. I'm sure that they have totally stopped the 2 on 1 off scenario it was never something that was strictly allowed but was a loophole that they were unaware of. TBH we looked at adding DDP to our WLV week but no matter how I crunch the numbers I simply cannot get it to make financial sense therefore we will just be paying OOP & eating off-site when time permits.
