    Free dining is back for the fall! TA site is saying it must be booked for a 5 night stay at least.

    For the VALUE resorts, you will get the quick service dining plan for free when purchasing a package (includes room and MYW tickets).

    For the MODERATE and DELUXE and DDVR resorts, you will get the basic dining plan for free when purchasing a package (includes room and MYW tickets)

    The packages are good for stays Sept 29, 2009 to Nov 24, 2009 and Nov 29, 2009 to Dec 17, 2009.

    Must be booked by Sept 26, 2009.

    would, but unfortunately they don't . They pay enough to own a piece of Disney , thats for sure . Not just their regular time share payment, but every month , a maintenance fee , every month . Watch me pay that kind of money out for a 2 week stay throughout the year . I could take another two trips . It's Crazy !!!

    They let you pay the dues each month because they are so high. The maintence fees are WAY higher at Disney than they are at any other timeshare resort. That is one of the main reasons I won't buy into DVC.

    Johnie you state that it's for a min 5 night stay. Is that a strict rule or can it be less than that?

    I agree Johnie . And thats why they should offer DVC members free dining . It sure wouldn't hurt them any .

    It hasn't been in the past. Let me go do a test and see what it says. it's always been a 3 night min in the past. Yep, it let me do it for a 3 night stay.

    I've found being a DVC member to be a real bonus. I like having a deluxe villa waiting for me! The dues may be high with respect to other Time Shares, but I'll stick with my DVC. It's rather like going to Disney instead of Six Flags.

    I have found that purchasing into DVC allows me to stay at deluxe resorts on a yearly (multiple times, depending upon when I choose to go) basis whereas if I were paying cash, I'd never be able to afford them now.

    If there is a decent AP rate out (as there was for Herself's birthday last year) then I book that, but for the most part, when we stay on site it's with DVC either in a vacation club resort, or one of the others.

    I know it's not the best choice for everyone, but we've never regretted buying into it!

    Thanks for the "warning" about free DDP!






    Welcome to our new home! It's a lovely and friendly place. If you haven't joined yet, do register. It's a great place to make friends and share all those Disney secrets!!
