    Addicted to the panel! Next trip 12/11 - 12/18. Plan to stay at POP unless WDW does free dining promo, then would upgrade to POR to get TS dining plan. Should I play safe & book Pop or gamble on Dining promo and book POR? Booking in next week or so.


    My guess is that you saw the announcement by now about the free dining offer from Disney. It is certainly a great deal, and like you, many of us use the savings from the free dining to upgrade to a larger class of resort room.

    However the offer has been made for the time frame of August 15 - October 2. I don't know if they will offer a similar program in December. My guess is that the time that you are looking to travel they may well NOT offer it, as it is close enough to the holidays that they are already getting guests on extended vacations.

    So if it were me, I would book the resort that you would get if you expected NOT to get the dining plan in December.

    Have a magical vacation!
