Correction..Campsites are not included..just the cabins and resorts. Still a great deal, especially if you planned on a cabin or room anyway. The dining (2 meals a day including character meals is a great deal even if you paid for the meal plan (because it includes so many things) is now $38 each if you pay for it, so for 4 people that would be $152 savings. For the two of us, the svings was$532 for a week.

If you are thinking of a trip to Disney, they just started one of their best ever deals. This is only the second time they have offered this. Your food (lunch or breakfast and dinner (including the character shows and the nicer restaurants..with tax, tip, appetizer, main meal and dessert) is free. Even if you stay at the campground. You can check it out more at Mousesavers.com. Dates good are August 13 - September 30 (you might have to dodge a hurricane or two). Campsites and resorts will go fast. We go in May and booked this first week of September..it's too good a deal not to go back!

Are you sure the campsites are included in the deal? I checked last year and the campsites were not included in the deal. Cabins were, but not campsites. I understand why they would not include it, you can have 10 on a site for around 60 a nite. If you have 10 with you, that would be $360/nt in free dining. The cheapest room on site is 77/nt and sleeps only 4 so that is maximum 144 in free dining per nite.

In Feb when we went they were offering free park hopper upgrade on tickets and the campsites did not qualify for that either. Before you get excited, check with Disney. If it is including campers, I would be tempted to go back again as well. We have 7 of us here.

Yes, you are right..just the cabins and resorts. In my excitement, I forgot. We are staying at POP, and the savings is wonderful for us.

I was taken back when I saw a commercial on TV. It said "5 Days and 4 Nights for a family of Four under $1000!!"
Poor Walt must be spinning in his grave. He built Disneyland for the kids. Once you could spend all day for $20 and ride all the rides. And ,no, this wasn't that long ago either.
When Eisner and the stockholders took over it was all about money and not about the kids.
Too bad.

Imagine if you were paying full price for the food! And tickets are also included in that price.

Back when we spent $20 on each kid for the booklet of tickets, you could ride each ride once (you pulled out your tickets, and they had letters. The had just enough of the E tickets to ride the bigger rides once). Now we can ride them as many times as we want, and we have stayed in the parks for many many hours..once when it was open for resort people til 3 in the morning! It used to be more a ride park, like 6 flags, not much in the way of shows, parades, fireworks, etc. like it is now. But of course our salary at that time was $100 a week too LOL. I don't want to go back! I think it's a good value for what you get, if you make sure you take it all in especially when you take advantage of something like this meal deal. I have all my advance ressies and we are eating at some nice places. Even the character meals are included.

Well, since I have seen DisneyLand a number of times. I reckon I am eventually going to get to DisneyWorld just to see what the excitement is all about.

OK, this is one of my favorite topics. I LOVE WDW. We go about every 2 years. BTW, Eisner is out, so I hope to see Disney becoming more Disneylike again soon.

We camped there in Feb/Mar of this year. The sites are great. We paid for the dining plan. It saved us money over paying for the meals on our own. Would be cheaper to cook in the camper, but hey, I am on vacation too. LOL

We had more food than we could even eat. We were so stuffed. Had character meals everyday. Ate at the Hoop DeeDoo Musical Revue. Loved it. Highly recommend it. We were there 10 days and 9 nites. There were 8 of us and we paid under $4000 for the whole package. It included tickets, food, and campsite. That works out to about $500 per person. We usually don't spend that much on a vacation, but after Hurricane Katrina, we NEEDED it. It was our once in a lifetime trip to WDW and all others will be on a tight budget again.

If anyone has any questions about Fort Wilderness (the cg at WDW) or WDW in general, I will be glad to answer them.

We were planning on taking advantage of the free dining (staying in a resort) first week of September, but switched to the a week starting the 28th, to take advantage of the Wine and Food festival, and a chance to see some old time bands as well.
Since the free food includes both lunch and dinner, we made our dinner ressie's late, so we can also partake of a little of the "tastes" in Epcot during the Food Festival. So in May we hit the Flower show and in October the W & F..does it get any better?

Go away hurricanes..you are not wanted!

With our airfares from NY being $37 - $49 each way, we can't afford to stay home!
