    Is there a better savings than free dining if you are a family of 4adults? Our meals usually run about $200 ea TS. I know they offer 25 - 30% off room. Is that better than free dining? Are there other deals I should look into?

    Greetings and a warm welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Antoinette!

    In my opinion, there is no better way to vacation at Walt Disney World Resort than to enjoy Disney Resort hotel Guest benefits and to participate on Disney Dining Plans. I agree, that Table-Service meals can easily run close to, if not over $200.00 for four adult Guests and then you have to add the cost of your other meals and snacks on top of that cost throughout the day. I believe many special offer Guest Room packages may be comparable in savings to a Free Dining Offer, absolutely. Mathematics never fail us.

    The difference, herein, lies in whether or not you prefer to build an inclusive, pre-paid Magic Your Way Vacation Package, or modify and add a Disney Dining Plan to your existing Disney Resort hotel package reservation, it’s all up to you and you will still enjoy unique Disney Resort hotel Guest benefits and magical experiences during your stay.

    Connect with Disney Parks on social media and continually check our official Special Offers, Discounts & Deals page for an offer of interest to you.

    Antoinette, planning a visit to Walt Disney World Resort during our Holiday Events and Celebrations will leave you with the best, ever-lasting memories; what a perfect time of year to visit!

    We thank you for your loyalty in consulting us, Antoinette and wish you a magical Disney vacation!
