    Getting the DP will very much dictate what ADR's we do too as i don't fancy paying OOP for all the one's we have on our list!

    Ok no use to you I'm sure as I dont have a calculator but I'm sure dining plans cost a loooooot of $$$$$$, sure that will be the way to go.

    Hope the xchange rate improves hun then its not an issue :D

    No wonder I couldn't sleep! All this math talk and goat sacrifices going on!

    Teresa, give me your dates and I will see what the cost is through the US site. I don't know a thing about the specials via the UK site. It may very well be cheaper to book through them.

    Thanks Johnie the reason we can't book through the UK site to get free dining is because we already have park tickets(length of stay tickets have to be purchased to qualify) and obviously there are no offers on now.

    What i was trying to find out was the approximate cost of booking through the US site plus the 1 day base ticket we need to have to qualify for free dining if and when it is announced.
    However it looks like they are charging way over the gate price as a penalty for just buying a days ticket.

    My thinking is that it may be cheaper to just book POP in £ and pay for meals and the odd TS meal we want to do.

    Are you all as confused as me?

    Anyway it's for 1 adult,a 15 yr old and a 13 yr old.
    POP for 10 nights
    21st - 31st August.

    Thankyou.

    But I'm only getting the one day ticket with mine and still have to buy my park hopper when I get there and the cost for the one day ticket wasn't anywhere near that much money.

    Free dining is not offered yet. That is rack rate. Tickets about $80 each, and the room is about $93 a night.

    That sounds more like it and i assume if free dining was offered the price should stay pretty much the same.

    So if you have the reservation already then when free dining is annouced then you can just add the FD to it?

    ok I went to the regular Disney World site here in the US and put in the same stuff and got the same thing.

    When you were doing your quote, did you remove the park hopper and water park options from the ticket?
