    Planning a trip for 2013. I'm trying to figure out what will provide a family of 4 (2 adults & 2 kids under 10 but older than 2) the most savings. Discounted room price of 20%, 30%, 40% of a deluxe resort hotel or free dining plan? Not easily intutive

     Hi Brad!
    Which discount to choose!  That's an excellent question!  Between a free dining offer and a room discount, I would choose free dining.  Although a room offer is a great discount, taking into account the size of your family, as well as the children's ages, FD is definitely the way to go.  You'll be able to plan out meals and experiences without having to go through the budgeting aspect of it.  Also, the variety of cuisines you can enjoy are really endless here.
    As for the room discount, if staying in a deluxe resort is your fancy, then there's no better way to stay than on a promotion.  Saving 35 percent off the top of a deluxe resort is an excellent deal!  Being able to experience the wonderful entities offered in a deluxe resort is awesome and something that should definitely be done during at minimum one vacation! 
    Honestly it's your own personal choice as to what kind of experience you'd like!
    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!
