  1. I work in travel in Canada and the promotion is not only for US residents. Just wanted to clear that for your Canadian viewers.

  2. Family of 4 with a toddler and a picky 3 year old…. for my situation our next trip with this deal works out that we’d save more money staying value or lower value rooms at a moderate resort…. pricier rooms at moderates and deluxes the room discount would save us more

    We’re also a family that fully utilizes the plan and on our last day end up buying a snack or two…. we’ll also only get the dining plan option if we’re staying for a week….. if we were staying the minimum stay of 4 nights we’d probably garden grocer and take the room discount
    We’re also upgrading to the standard 1 table service plan since we drop $$ at le cellier each trip – and don’t mind sitting for table service on longer trips

    It really does come down to what you want to do and how you vacation. Crunch those numbers

  3. Dang. I was really hoping I would still get the plan. I go the day after Thanksgiving and have had the free dining plan before. I have a family of 6. This trip just got a lot more expensive for 2019. Sigh.

    I had been looking to book a disney trip for August and when I saw this I jumped on it. I did upgrade to the standard dining plan though just to have more options for certain meals. It will be my daughter’s first time; I’m so excited.

  5. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE remember to TIP YOUR SERVERS!!! So important. ONLY parties of 6 or more do they add the tip on, but you’ll still be required to pay it. 5 or under the tip should be 18% or up of what the price of your meal would have been without the meal plan. How horrible is it that I’ve seen people use a DELUXE dining plan, the bill would be $240….and they leave NOTHING! Awful, just awful. You must realize that 4% of that meal cost is already taken from the server to tip out bartenders, hosts, busses, and server assistants. PLEASE don’t be the awful person who doesn’t tip …. meal plan or no meal plan. And hey, if you thought the service was bad….leave 15%. Good service or better 18% and up…..thanks!

    Free or not, the dining plan is too restrictive for me. I would rather try to get discounts on the room rate, and do my own thing for food, ESPECIALLY during Epcot festivals.

  7. thankfully I catched thanks to my agent it to have some savings so may(be) I could give a little bit more gratuities. But just maybe ;=) merchandise or nice snacks also a option.

    • I´m saving $ 400,- so I am pleased and happy it´s a nice savings and also have it upgraded to the deluxe dining plan.

    I am an annual passholder and was told by a Disney cast member that the cost of my ticket will be able to be applied toward my renewal. This is our first time using the dining plan but since I have a few weird food allergies, I always feel more comfortable eating at a restaurant where I can speak with the chef, so I upgraded to the deluxe plan. The timing for us was perfect to take advantage of the offer. Love all the tips and videos!

  9. Can you do a video about the Disney credit card? Is it worth it? Does it get you discounts on Disney World packages? etc.
    Because I went through 4 nights of free dining to see the price and it is still insanely expensive, the cheapest for 2 adults at an All Star Resort was $1950, before taxes and fees. I went to Disneyland Paris and paid the Plus meal plan (breakfast + 2 meals) and then did a package with 5 nights at a DLP resort with park tickets and it was no where near as expensive, and this is without paying for dining (plus then if you want to upgrade). I remember the hotel and park package to cost around $700 for DLP. And I know World is bigger, but the price jump is insane.

  10. Loved the video 😀

    Can you maybe do a video on Disney pin trading?
