    A junior is a "Disney Adult". Once children turn 10, they pay adult prices. So legally they're still children but at Disney, they don't qualify for children's' prices. Like pp said, everyone on your reservation would get free dining. They say based on 2 adults, etc. but it can be for however many legally fit in one room. The park ticket is a 2-day minimum.

    Children on the Dining Plan can only order from the children's menus.

    Are the reservations already open for the free dining plan? It's been 5 years since I've booked f/d. Thought they opened it at the end of Feb or March? I'm a Disney Visa member.

    Does anyone know from the past about how much it is to upgrade free dining for a value resort (so the quick service plan) to the basic plan (1TS, 1QS, 1Snack)?
    Trying to determine if we might as well stay at a moderate or if we'd still save money staying value and upgrading the plan...assuming we stay during free dining

    We upgrade and I believe it is about $18-$20 per person/day.

    we encountered this exact question this past november.

    When i calculated the value resort with free QS dining upgraded to table service dining, it actually came out a tad more expensive than the moderate resort with table service free dining.
    So a no brainer for us.
    the comparison was specifically between pop century and Port Orleans Riverside.
    The difference was very small, but pop came out more. So of course, we booked POR.

    i just did math for my stay for the same question it would be 81 more to stay at caribian resort, so we may just stay there if the free dinning is availbule when we want it.

    Thanks! Our options right now are a suite at ASMusic or the cabins at Fort Wilderness. I think if we go during free dining we will just go with the cabins then...especially since we'd be upgrading 6 dining plans.

    from what i understand, when free dining first came out last year POR was excluded.

    But it was included in a later stage.

    I don't recall when i booked my daughter's room - she stayed at POR in mid-november 2014.

    maybe it was in may or june that i booked her stay?
    anyway, when i called up to book her free dining package, POR had just become available for free dining. The CM was very excited that it was available as it hadn't been initially.

    Do we know when Disney will post the dates for later this year? We're going end August/beginning of September and just wondering if we'll be able to take advantage of free dining.

    POR has been excluded for a couple of years now. PIN codes that went out last year did include POR though.

    Still a little early for Fall promos to be announced. Last year, it was in May.
