    It may jusy be me having a blonde day or maybe i just don't get it but i'm trying to get my head round booking our Disney stay for August.

    Today i could book POP for 10 nights through the UK Disney site for £520

    Today on the US website i could book the same for $923 (£659 at a rate of 1.4 $ to the £)

    To qualify for the free dining this year we have to book through the US site as we already have 5 day tickets.
    This means we have to buy at least a 1 day ticket for ech of us.
    Looking at the US site this is going to cost $1489.22 (£1063) for the 10 days stay as they are charging $186.39 (£133) per one day ticket.I know that the on the gate price is roughly $80 so i don't understand.


    This means that the 'free dining' will actually cost an extra £139 for the hotel and an extra £400 for the 1 day tickets to qualify for dining.

    So an extra £539 to get free dining and an extra day.

    I'm probably getting it all wrong somewhere as my head is spinning but this seems and awful lot.
    I'm sure it wouldn't cost us that much to pay OOP and for an extra days park ticket so where am i going wrong?

    I know the exchange rate is making a huge difference but if i'm going to have to pay that much for an extra day's park ticket to get the free dining i'm wondering if it's worth it.

    Once she gets here, I'll need a glass, a calculator, a sharpened pencil, and a goat.

    I'll let you know what I come up with :thumbsup:

    I think the Math Gods may require a sacrifice.

    excellent idea.

    Siobhan...we're going to need more vodka over here. Scratch the goat, but I'm think I'm going to need an abacus. I'd say two, but I'm not sure what the plural from of abacus is....abacai?

    I'll have a kitchen sink while we wait on Siobhan if that's not too much trouble?

    Val is ill at the mo and i couldn't get hold of her when i tried over the RPR booking so i just booked it.

    I know the free dining offer (if there is one) will not be announced for a few weeks yet but i was trying to cost things up.

    Call me impatient but i want to plan while i'm off!
