Sorry I can't answer this one, but you may want to ask on the DVC board.


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.)
Taxes are not inlcuded in the price on Disney's menu. e.g. CP dinner will actually cost $34.99 plus tax if you pay out of pocket. If you are on the dining plan, it is 1 credit. You don't have to pay the tax out of pocket if you are on the dining plan. Tips are not included, so you will need to pay the tip out of pocket. There are a couple of exceptions of which I am aware. One is CRT. That price includes taxes and possibly Akershus ( I'm not positive about this one). This, of course, could have change for next year, but taxes have been included in their menu price in past.

The price on CRT includes the gratuity. The price on Akershus does not. No additional taxes need to be paid on items covered by a DDP credit.

I was at DTD Rainforest Cafe yesterday and asked about using my gift card, which was usable, but a pain the behind. He then mentioned that the computers are in the process of being configured so that DDP will be accepted starting in January. He said that currently the Platinum and Premium are accepted, but in January all will be accepted. Hopefully TREX will be included in DDP too.

That is exactly what I would suggest doing. The list will be final well before your trip, so you should still be able to easily make adjustments if necessary.

Big River Grill is on the DDP for 2011, and probably will be in 2012. However it does not accept ADR's, it is walk in only.

For any other place, I would make the ADR even if it isn't on the list. There will probably be a bunch of them that will be added at a later time.

No ADRs for Big River Grill. They don't take ADRs through Disney. They don't even take regular reservations, although they do a "call ahead" kind of thing. But if you try that six months out they will probably laugh.

Okay, my mind is swimming right now. Let's try to break this down. We REALLY want to stay at the Boardwalk Inn Resort and I'm trying to figure out what exactly we get with the free dining plan if we go late Jan-early Feb 2012. Is this the MYWP Plus Dining or the Deluxe Dining? What do I really get for the rate I'm paying I guess is what I want to know. 2 adults, 2 children. I would appreciate any help as I've looked thru all the resorts today online and finally came to the conclusion that with the free dining this might be the best. Thanks!

Under most of the "free dining" promotions, you will receive the Disney Dining Plan (aka DDP aka "Plus" Dining) for moderate and deluxe resorts and Quick Service Dining Plan (aka QSDP) for values.

So, for BWI, it will be the standard Disney Dining Plan (1TS, 1CS, 1snack per person per night of stay).

Am I blind or is CSR not listed on the 2012 DDP for some reason? I know non-Disney owned resataurants are not necessarily included yet, but this is a resort and AFAIK, Disney-owned.

The resort is Disney-owned. The food service there is not. CSR is the only Disney resort where the food service is operated by a third party.

Thanks. So since it's in the 2011 DDP, we would have every reason to believe it will be added to 2012 after the contract is signed?

Yes. They've always signed up before.
