I'm actually going to end up paying less at OKW than I would if I had stayed at POR and got free dining. It just works for us (besides, having the kitchen, the kids can have pizza, they're DiGiorno addicts, and we have a full size fridge which is awesome).

So, no free dining for us, but still getting a wonderful discount.
I'm in the same boat. A great cm friend got me 40% off the cabins. This is the first time I've had a friend do this. If they extend to 50% (which if they do I understand it may not be all resorts) can I call to get it applied or does he have to. He works so much I would rather not bother him if I don't have to.

You can call if (once) they extend it. I call about once a week even though my friend is checking as well. lol You can also add the dining plan to your reservation as well if you'd like to do that. If the percentage off extends, the dining plan discount of 15% should extend as well.

We're eating our way around the Food & Wine Festival so no need for the dining plan.

Hi there! I thought those only work at DLR World of Color show. Where in WDW can I get those and what show do they work with?

The Disney Park Blog posted a story this morning about the ears. Here is a piece of it.

Also, beginning on October 19, Glow with the Show Ears will become part of Wishes fireworks and the Celebrate the Magic nighttime projection show at Cinderella Castle in Magic Kingdom Park. And during the holiday season, be sure to wear your Ears for special surprises during The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights and performances of Holiday Wishes: Celebrate the Spirit of the Season.

I don't know if this has been asked but when you order quick service from the dining plan is it adult credits and child credits or can you get all adult qs?

They used to be lumped together, but since I haven't had "kids" on the dining plan in many years, I don't know if that is true any more. The last time my son was a disney kid, we bought him an adult QS meal, however, we were at different stations. For example, at Cosmic Rays. my DS and DH would be at the chicken and rib counter and order 2 adult meals, while me and DD were at another counter ordering 2 adult meals.

So excited for the Glow with the Show ears!! I will definitely be splurging on these, I can see it now....

DH: '$25 for a pair of ears??!!??'
Me: (whiney voice initiated)'But they are shiney and they glow and they flash in time to the music and we are at Disney and it will add to the magic and...'
DH: 'Here! Take my wallet, just please stop whining!!'
Me: 'I'll go get a pair for me and the princess'
DH: 'What about me??'
Me: 'Oh?, I thought they were too much?'
DH: (whiney DH voice) 'I WANT TO SPARKLE AND LIGHT UP TOO!!'


About the dining plan I assume as you are only paying child prices then you get a child's meal? This will be our first time on the DDP so I don't know the in's and out's of it but I am sure someone here will have the answer

Thank you so much for mentioning the Glow with the show ears here! I actually started a thread back in July with title Mickey Ears asking about these because I saw the World of Color videos with them. Back then I was told that WDW don't have these. I am so excited and would definitely purchase 4!!!! Are they expensive? Any links that has more details about this? I wonder if Fantasmic will be included too but I'm happy with Osborne Lights alone. :-)

Per the dining plan terms, children must order off of the kids menu when available.

In practice, I have had CMs encourage me four different times to order adult meals for my hungry boys close to being a Disney "adult". But this is not hot it's *supposed* to work.

Thinking I will need to be trying the Glow With the Show Ears though, depending on the $$$. The video (from DL?) is supper cool!

I haven't seen an MDE update yet....
