    At this point, I don't even know if you will be allowed to upgrade the dining plan. This is for the UK people only at this point so we'll have to wait and see what they offer us.

    oh yes, I realize that but the norm is that we are offered the same deal... so I was just thinking ahead is all .
    This could get expensive . Rack Rate moderate , upgrade to $10.00 per person x 14 days to get the most out of the tix . I'm probably going to purchase an AP and just do room only . What are your thoughts ?

    Well the UK people last year weren't even allowed to book value but we were. So, I don't know what we'll be offered this year. It certainly can get expensive. I'd crunch the numbers and see if you can get a good AP rate and then buy the DDE card to save the 20%. It might work out better that way.

    I will just take whatever is on offer.

    I may even decide to stay at POP and not have DP and pay OOP for fewer ADR's.

    Don't think the kids would go for that though!

    We fly out on 10th August and stay on I-Drive for 9 nights.
    Then we transfer to RPR for 2 nights to do Universal.
    21st August we get to Disney for 10 nights wherever turns out the best option!!!

    The free dining for UK guests is from earlier in August this year until October time so hopefully the duration will be longer for US guests when it's anounced in April too.

    Tinker, on the UK site the upgrade price if £4 per day, and £1 for children, so I guess it would equate to $7 or $8 depending on what exchange rate you use.
