Hi! We are searching for good dates to go in 2012 and I just so this posting. What is considered in the “free dining” offer? We are planning on getting the MYW plus dining package to make it easier . Is it worth getting that offer instead? Thanks a lot! I’ve found this site extremely useful for our plans!

Adriana–the way it works is that the dining package part of the package is free. If you reserve a value resort, you get the quick service plan for free, and if you stay at another resort type you get the regualr dining plan free. This can be worth >$150/day for typical families of 4…

We are planning on staying at the Art of Animation in September. We are a family of six so these accommodations are one of our only options. We noticed in the report that family suites will not be included in the free dining option. Will this include the Art of Animation suites as well? Is this common when they offer free dining?

Hi Eric, the ful details will be out next week. Art of Animation may be excluded because it is new and hence doesn’t need discounting to fill up. However, All-Star Music Family suites may be covered by the deal…more to come next week…
