I have a few questions myself. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help answer them!

1. We are hoping to exchange into DVC through RCI for next summer. I know DVC members pay just regular (non peak) prices. Will we qualify for that or pay peak prices?



2. Are taxes added to the OOP prices? For example, if CP is $34.99 for the dinner buffet, are taxes added to the $34.99 or does that include tax? (This would make the DDP be a bigger savings than what I'm currently figuring.)

So more likely than not, restaurants like Yak&Yeti and a few other World Showcase restaurants will be added later? Will the dining options pretty much mirror those from 2011? I sure hope so! We tried DDP this year for the first time this year and would be disappointed if the current options stood.

Only one restaurant (Fulton's) has ever dropped out of dining plan participation.

So it's likely they will all be back for 2012.

There are even rumors that there will be additions at Downtown Disney but for now they are just rumors.

Question about the refillable mug: Is it refillable at your resort only or in the parks?

Aulani is the new Disney resort hotel in HAWAII. The DDP only applies to the WDW parks/resorts in FLORIDA.

Since most 2 years olds are still nibblers you will generally find the portion sizes large enough to share with your 2 year old. We have never had a problem with not having enough food...it's usually we have too much food! Last trip we even started using only a couple of our quick service credits and sharing meals between the 4 of us. This also allowed us to have "extra" credits to use at breakfast.

Also, at the buffets your 2 year old would be able to eat for free and you can pick anything for him/her at the buffet.

Not to worry...I have never heard of anyone going hungry on the dining plan!

Also there are several table service restaurants in Epcot World Showcase that aren't in the brochure, do you think they will be added at a later time?
They are: Nine Dragons, Marrakesh, La Hacienda de San Angel, San Angel Inn, Tutto Italia, and Via Napoli.
All these are listed in the 2012 Birnbaums' Guide that they are on the dining plan.

Sorry,at this time there is no prepaid dining plan that can be purchased for Aulani.

WDW is the only Disney location that has a credit-based dining plan. Disneyland has a voucher-based one.

These restaurants are not operated by Disney. Look for them to be added to Disney's official lists at the end of the year. Birnbaum's guide may list them, but they're not officially on the plan for next year until Disney publishes their final brochure and restaurant list.

2012 Dining Plan

We booked ADRs earlier this week for our Mar/Apr trip. The reservation agent said she just received an email that Planet Hollywood was added for 2012. I booked a rez, but after reading that there will likely be more additions, I switched it to Raglan Road.

Another note, I was told that the Fantasmic dinner package was only available for reservations before 5PM. I think I read that too. The agent told me to call back because they had some issue in the system and couldn't book it. When I called back, I was able to book a 6PM rez. Not sure if this is a change for 2012 or if I just got bad info.

Sounds like a change. Typically you cannot book a Fantasmic dinner package with a time after 5 PM. Check your reservation and make sure it says Fantasmic Dinner Package.

I checked our reservation online and it shows the Fantasmic! Dinner package for an 8:30pm show. Our Rez is 6 pm at H&V. I was surprised as well, but I'm happy with the later time. There is a 10pm show that night, so maybe they allow later dining.
