What am I missing? is it because there are only 2 of us? But when you have children under 18 the room doesn't increase anyway.

Moderate Resort
$101 per person, per day
SAVE $600 when you buy this 5-night/6-day Magic Your Way room, ticket and Disney Dining Plan package at select Disney Moderate Resorts.
$101 per person per day based on a family of four.
Total package price of $2,429
The $ per day pp offered as examples by Disney are always based on "family of four" so if your only a family of 2 your pp cost doubles

The stay/play/dine at first glance sounds good and maybe is if staying at a Value or Mod but not so much if stying Deluxe.

I priced out both the RO and The Pkg discounts for 5 Nights/6 Days BLT TPV Studio and with the RO the savings was $988.40

stay/play/dine 6 day Adult Tix $556, with Pkg Disc @ Child price $520 (this is for 2 guests)

Savings $ $36

DDP Adult $55.59, with Disc @ Child price $17.16 pp per day

Savings per day pp $38.33

Savings for 2 pp for 5 days $383.30

Total savings with Pkg Disc $419.30

The RO Disc was better by $569.10

The SPD promo is definitely causing a lot of confusion.

I was quoted quoted $4,319 for our 9 night stay 2/21-3/2/13 in a POR royal room, river view, 3 adults, 9-day hopper, 9 nights dining:
Room with taxes $2,675 (then add $45 non-taxed for extra adult) - total $2,720.25 (room is not discounted)
Hopper cost per person $369.56 (child's price*) - total $1,108.68
Dining cost per person $163.44 (child's price*) - total $490.32
*savings is adults pay childs price

Our savings is $1,247 over Disney rack rate package price of $5,566.

When I applied this formula to the other reservations in our group gathering, the savings were all different of course based on how may adults, etc. So I found it hard to explain until I showed my family my spreadsheets (yes, ok, I'm a spreadsheet freak).

That's why I think a lot of people are having a hard time understanding the promo; the math provided in the SPD example doesn't work out for everyone.

Since I don't have a Disney visa, I couldn't re-book my current reservation yet, but hopefully on Wednesday it will all work out the same!

Did anyone book Poly and could share their numbers? I'm considering moving my reservation from POFQ (which will only have a 5% discount) to Poly and I'd like some base to compare both options.

Right now I'm paying $3,500 for 2 people for the MYW 10 base ticket with DDP included, standard view at POFQ.

If I simulate my dates (Feb 6-15) for Poly I get $6,175 with no discounts. Applying the 35% discount I get $4,135 but if I apply the $128 pp quote I come up with $3,840. Is that correct?


EDITED:

I called Disney and the CM quote me for $4,600. Don't you guys think that is still too much?

I just called Disney and saved $534.34 on a room only discount for our stay at the WL in February. I was also able to get them to apply the discount to our daughter's reservation since we are part of a family gathering. And they didn't even ask me to pay any additional deposit!

It was very easy.

Nice, Wood Nymph! It was only 25% savings, though, right? We have WL booked for the same week in Feb and, sure 25% is good but it's not great. We can stay at a nicer, more expensive resort, like Poly, for less money b/c the discount is higher. Drives me crazy! We're thinking of changing resorts to save even more.

Looks like you are applying the 35% to the total cost of the vacation, not to the room rate. the 35% is for RO. If you are looking at taking advantage of the RO discount, price out what rack rate is for the 10 days you are looking at at POLY, then take 35% off of that. The rest (dining, ticks) would be at the regular rate.

With S/P/D, you are getting a discount - kids price for dining and park tickets - instead of the room. I'm not sure exactly if that is completely how they are doing it, but in looking at the other posts on the board, this is the gist.

That being said, I think that $4,600 at the Poly for 10 days with tickets and dining sounds good to me. I might look at my dates as they are and see what I can get... Poly is my favorite.

I think we all got spoiled thinking that we were all in for free dining or something. I'm just thankful that there was a discount for my dates and I don't have to sit at my computer like a crazy woman waiting for the possibilities anymore!!!

I modified my existing reservation last night to inclulde the stay play dine promo. I received price quotes for several different scenarios fom a very patient and helpful CM, and ended up booking Feb 6-14 (8 nts) at POFQ with 8-day MYW and DDP for 2 adults & 2 kids, and saved $802.30 with the promo. Not FD, but beats the heck outta nothin.

I am not sure on all the math for this promo. All I know is that we saved approx $45 per person per day (4 adults 10 days) from the package we had booked. Pretty darn close to free dining. I guess it all depends on dates and resorts on how much you will save with this deal.
Bottom line, I am very happy with this.

Question

Don't know if this has been asked before & I apologize if it has. We are planning a trip 1/2 - 1/7 and saw the free dining deal. We have AP's, is there any way to take advantage of the deal ? Anyone have experience doing this. Our DS will be 10 by then so free dining would be a great deal since I was just going to add it to our reservation like I did last time using the AP.

Is it possible to just add 1 day of tickets for example or do I have to get tickets for all 5 nights ? I guess if the deal can't be modified at all then whatever AP deal or general public discount will be better than nothing but I would love that free dining

Thanks for enlightening me, that was exactly what I was doing.

I'll wait and call next Wednesday, if POFQ receives more than 5% discount I'll apply the discount and keep my reservation, otherwise we'll make the move to Poly.

The current promotion isn't free dining, it is a discounted price of adult tickets if you buy myw tickets and dining together. With an AP, I don't know how you would apply that. There is a RO discount (varies by resort) as well, so you can still take advantage of a promotion between Jan-March if that is when you are planning on going.

I just called again to see what pricing I could get on a Deluxe resort (we are staying at a Mod), and it doesn't seem to make a great deal of sense to use the s/p/d for us because the rooms are so much more expensive. If I were to use the RO discount instead, I would think about updgrading to Deluxe. HTH

I just modified an existing RO reservation. I had to pay an additional one night deposit and put it on my Disney Visa.

For the S/P/D promo, are Values locked into QSDP, Mods with SDP? Can I stay value and pay upgrade to regular/standard dining?


Thanks!
