    From Mousesavers

    Enjoy a Disney Dining Plan at no cost for your 2009 holiday!

    Book five nights or more at a selected Disney Resort for arrivals between 2nd August - 3rd October 2009, and you'll receive FREE dining for the duration of your stay for everyone in your party. (Note: this is the very slowest season at Walt Disney World due to school schedules, heat/humidity and peak hurricane season.)

    Choose a Moderate Resort and receive the Quick Service Dining Plan for FREE

    Choose a Deluxe Resort or a select Deluxe Villa Resort (Old Key West or Saratoga Springs) and receive the regular Dining Plan for FREE

    Also includes a 14-Day Ultimate Ticket for the price of a 7-Day

    Requires purchase of a holiday package including accommodation at a Walt Disney World Moderate Resort, Disney Deluxe Resort or selected Disney Deluxe Villa Resort, plus a Disney Ticket and Disney Dining Plan. This fantastic offer is only available for bookings made on or before 4th November 2008. Book via the Disney UK web site or tour operators in the UK.

    The number of rooms allocated to this offer is limited. No group rates or discounts apply. Applies to new bookings only. Gratuities not included.



    Interesting twist. I had told some that if free dining was offered next year I bet it would only be for the counter service plan.

    I'm here (very drunk) but i can't book until it's announced for US guests as i already have my park passes.

    I'm hoping to get quick dining free at Value and upgrade to full but if not we will have to stay at POR and upgrade to full.

    Will you be doing moderate with us?

    Johnie, do you think this foreshadows anything in regards to the bounceback offers for the US? Or do you think they are completely unrelated?

    When the US free dining was announced this year it was available at Value but that was before Quick dining was introduced.

    I still think staying at Moderate will be worth it though if we upgrade and choose our ADR's carefully!!!

    Thanks for the info Johnie.

    I like the idea of the two different levels for Mod and Deluxe. It will hopefully mean that places like Le Celier won't be as busy :shrug:

    I don't see the point of it if they are going to let people upgrade to the standard package though :rolleyes008: Obviously they think they are going to make more money that way :(




    If it's like this year Keith then MNSSHP will start on or around 3rd October :D

    Yes Becca if we have to do moderate it will be POR.

    I'd really like to stay there but the kids want to do POP as it's more Disney.

    Wendy if we are paying does it really matter where we are staying and what plan we get?

    I could stay at a value and pay for Deluxe.It is a chance for me and the kids to do something i couldn't afford to pay for if i was doing it all OOP.

    Makes sense, though. Higher end resort, higher value dining plan.

    Done!!!!

    We can then eat well on the free dining and they can share counetr service meals!!!

    Always makes me laugh though that those who can afford to stay deluxe get free dining when they can afford to pay for it anyway!!!

    Whatever we get is greatfully received as i need to go as cheap as possible!

    ohhh I like that idea! And Alysia will be an adult next year so she can provide the adult supervision for the kiddos :lol:

    Becca,
    I've noticed that the bounce back program offers a little more latitude. But, it could certainly be like this plan as well. You just never know with Disney. I am ready and able to go mod for next year if need be :yes:

    I'm going where you're going and I've never stayed at a moderate before so I'd love that!!! Just tell me when to send you money :D

    This trip is going to be sooo much fun to plan :smiley4::sigs-cartoon-005::smiley4::sigs-cartoon-005:
