Actually the room discount and dining plan came out very close for us. The factors that pushed us to the dining plan were it allows my toddler and kindergartener to have their own meals (they usually share), we get an extra character meal, we can utilize the park hopper which we hadn't bought the last trip (bonus time in Epcot after AK), and I don't have to do math at every dinner to see if we're on budget..my husband can have steak every meal. So we just get more out of the discount it doesn't necessarily save us much more than the room discount.

Let me guess it's probably around double the savings of a room discount assuming your eating habits match closely to the DDP (TS + QS) per day?

I’m eating my words. After running a lot of numbers, the dining actually works for us. I’m guessing it’s because we have 5 people who can fit in the 5th sleeper rooms. Also the kids like character meals. I ran it against room discount price and the bounce back I originally booked.

At this point and time we have a reservation in 2024 that is rack rate, no discounts out for it yet. If free dining was available, we would gladly take it.

I had either option for a 9 night trip. Unless I lucked into a bug, more is allowed.

Its in the official press release: https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2024/01/disneyplus-subscribers-enjoy-a-free-dining-plan-at-walt-disney-world/ More 2024 Deals   There are even more offers available for those looking to book their Walt Disney World vacation. You can save up to 35% at select Disney Resort hotels when you stay 5 nights or longer most nights March 25 through Oct. 3, 2024. Visit DisneyWorld.com/SpecialOffers on Jan. 3, 2024 to learn more.** It also states: Starting Jan. 3, 2024, Disney+ subscribers can get a FREE dining plan when purchasing a non-discounted 4-night, 4-day Walt Disney Travel Company package that includes a room at a select Disney Resort hotel and theme park ticket with a Park Hopper option. This offer is valid for arrivals most nights July 1 through Sept. 30, 2024. It is a long way to travel for some for ONLY 4 nights. Normally it is worded differently such as saying with a minimum of a 3 night stay. I think this is only for a 4/4 trip

You get the number of nights you have booked. It is not based on the ticket length (just need a minimum of 4 night and 4day ticket).

Splash4evaJan 05, 2024

The DDP was worth it for me as we would do characters for breakfast & dinner so the numbers worked out. Again simple math when it comes to this especially when you are booking meals ahead of time. Add in a phone call to get the prices and its either worth it or not. Snacks obviously use for the more expensive ones now around the $6-7 range and its not rocket science. The new plan is virtually impossible to make work.

Ok… haven’t found a true answer anywhere and am honestly hesitant to ask Disney CS directly.. I have a 8 day/7 night resort stay but only a 5 day hopper. How many days of the free dining plan do I get?

seabreezept813Jan 05, 2024

We’re up there for character meals and same. It’s gotten way worse. Now moderates are QS dining. I feel like it used to be a decent deal if maxed out like 2012ish time but maybe I was naive then.

MagicHappens1971Jan 04, 2024

It’s not about the “can”, they choose not to allow refillable mugs for the parks.

The Dining Plan you buy separately is not a discount program. You have to carefully choose the most expensive thing on the menu every time to come out ahead. TDDP is presented as a convenient way to pre-purchase food. But it is solely benefitting Disney's bottom line. Those who don't mini-max cost of dishes wind up paying more for their meals. If you or anyone in your gang isn't hungry, or sick... you paid for a meal no one ate. The *FREE* Dining Plan attached to Disney resort rooms *can* be considered a discount. That's because everyone in the room gets 'free' meals. The more in the room, the more your meals are at a discount. Two people can barely mini-max it to their advantage. Three or more are good to go. One person in the room is just throwing money at Disney. The *FREE* Dining Plan is just another way to discount a room to encourage attendance. Choose the usual 20% off, or TDDP (but pay the more expensive rack rate). Because rooms with 3 or more benefit from this, it is the darling of families on a budget.
