    Hi Doug, 1st visit from 9/20-9/24. Waiting on Free dining announcement hoping there will be one. should I go ahead and book room/tixs and then add free dining? or just wait on it all? I know they only release so many rooms for that special? looking at CBR.


    I always recommend booking your room as soon as you can. Where you stay typically plays a big part in a great vacation experience, and if you have a particular resort in mind, I think it is important to get a room there.

    As for free dining, it depends on how they run the program. I don't have any magic ball on whether or not they are going to run a free dining promo. And if they do, I don't know if it will be retroactively applied to any reservation, or only those going forward. What you can to do save yourself some heartache is not make the dining plan reservations at this time. You can add those up to just a few days before you travel here, so certainly you will know if the free dining plan is available long before September.

    But remember, you can't add the dining plan after you get here! It has to be added more than two days prior to traveling. You don't want to miss out on the great savings, so mark your calendar!

    Have a magical vacation!
