#WDW Trip Planning. For those of you who upgraded your pass to the Premier Pass. We are planning a trip for February. I was going through the Disney travel site looking for hotel and maybe meal plans. It looks like you can only purchase a meal plan if you buy tickets too. Is the meal plan even worth it? Is there a plan for AP holders? Did you book your hotel before you upgraded your pass?   More...

I did this April 2013. I had my DL annual pass. I booked my hotel and mentioned I would be upgrading my DL pass to the Premier Pass. I was able to choose a dining plan because I had an annual pass. Once I checked into the hotel and made my way to my first park, I upgraded my pass at the ticket center. When I returned to my hotel, I was able to provide my Premier Pass and get my room rate adjusted for the annual pass discount. I stayed at POP value resort. I was by myself due to a work conference. When I travel with my 6'1" husband, I go with the resorts that offer at least a queen-sized bed. Most value resorts only offer a full.( One of those weird things that I take into consideration so we can sleep comfortably.) We are going next month and have the dining plan because it is free during the dates we are there. We would have chosen it if we did have to pay. We aren't big drinkers, so it's ok with us to have sodas. We are able to eat at places where one plate might be $30+ for dinner which would normally prevent us from eating at such a place. We're never hungry with the dining plan, and we make great use of it.  I would recommend looking at the plans and deciding if it is for you. Keep in mind reservations for table service restaurants open way in advance if you stay on property,  and most people make their reservations the first day they can. Also, being in CA, I was able to make our FP+ reservations at 9pm PST the day before I was technically supposed to be able to book them because they are based off EST - duckymomo  50.9 #5025 11:20AM
Wow!  Lots of great information!  Thank you!!! - AZDisney  610.5 #378 2:39PM
I don't know because I did mine all separate for various reasons but ask this on MW Florida.  They will be a ton of help with all of these questions!!   - MinnieMousewife  928.2 #230 10:41AM
I will thanks.  I just figured there are probably more people on this side who have premier passes.  So you did not do the meal plan?  It's probably more than what we want anyway. We like to eat when we want and not plan everything out... - AZDisney  610.5 #378 10:50AM
I missed that part, sorry!! Β We did not do the meal plan because I have 2 young kids and we weren't doing the super fancy places. Β So for us, the $ didn't make sense at all. Β I calculated the total cost of the meal plan for all 4 of us and knew we'd never spend that much. Β We ended up not even spending half for all meals on our trip, even with 3 character meals a few nicer places and tons of snacks and treats everyday lol. Β For the meal plan it just really depends on what kinds of places you'll be eating at. Β Hope this makes sense. Β How exciting you're going to wdw!!Β  - MinnieMousewife  928.2 #230 11:05AM
Thank you!  We don't normally eat 3 full meals plus snacks anyway.  Probably better for us to eat when and what we want with AP discount.   - AZDisney  610.5 #378 12:32AM
jealous!!!! Omg have so much fun. One of these days I'll make it there πŸ˜€ - missariel33  2115.6 #87 10:22PM
I'm excited!  Never been there! - AZDisney  610.5 #378 12:36AM
Gah! you are blessed my friend! I'll be following this post myself, as it peaks my interest in upgrading. Did you happen to see yesterday's Disney Parks Blog post regarding "Winter Stays in WDW" you may want to check that out to see if it would benefit your upcoming trip.  - FrankenJinglyVelinee  4362.5 #40 6:32AM
I am lucky!  Carter has a conference in Orlando, I am going to meet him at the end of it.  I did see the winter stays rate.  It is $134 + taxes without AP at a value resort during the time we want to go.  I'm sure February is off season too.  Weather should be nice. - AZDisney  610.5 #378 7:59AM
It's a good deal to upgrade, if you have a premium pass.  The difference is $330/per pass.   - AZDisney  610.5 #378 8:02AM
AZDisney which dates in Feb.? the only way Snoop will go, is if it runs in line with Daytona 500 **eyeroll**, and that, I believe is on Feb. 22nd.  - FrankenJinglyVelinee  4362.5 #40 9:28AM
We only paid $103 for a value resort. Honestly, I like where we stayed for the price. - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  706.0 #316 9:35AM
FrankenweenieVelinee. We were looking at 2/18-2/24.  But my husband texted me that it may have to wait. 😒. He just found out about a big project for then and can't take the time.  We might have to push it to April.  But April is a big anniversary for us, so that might be better.  HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper where did you stay?   - AZDisney  610.5 #378 9:55AM
The All Star Sports Resort. It was the first stop for the buses, which was nice after a long day. It was a tad Motel 6ish, but I've gotten that impression from all the value resorts. It wasn't bad though. If you're going all the way out there, and like Harry Potter at all, I highly suggest going to Universal for a day. It was unreal! - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  706.0 #316 11:52AM

Going to renew 2 Premium Passes Wednesday. Went to Target and bought the gift cards to make the large purchase and I am saving 5% ($70) with my red card!

Okay, I will be the grumpy one on this. all my info was stolen from target in that scandal this year, they got my private card number and all, then used it only a month ago, had to change everything on my atm cards and no more red card for me.  I have heard if you show the offending red card to them (mine is in pieces,lol) they will honor the 5% off.  just a reminder to everyone, as they are still having problems with it. if you want to use it, just keep checking your statement.  my bank is very good about stopping things so I did not lose any money.  but i do wish they did not make you link your card or other accounts to the red card, would rather it be like a store rewards or something. but good job on saving money, plus you get the money off for renewing so you are saving a lot!! - secretagentangel  9303.1 #11 10:34PM
So sorry to hear about that. Thanks for the heads up. - PrincessTiannaBeignet  375.0 #660 10:39PM
I agree! I have a love/hate relationship with Target. I still go back for more. In fact, they just issued me new cards because they had detected suspicious activity in my area, but not with my card.😳😳😁😁 - RadiatorSprings4Ever  2864.0 #55 11:17PM
Oh no!  I'm sorry.  I did get a new credit card at that time too.  Glad the charges were reversed.  I am not in time to renew, my pass expired in April.  Because I don't live close by we just "renew" on the next visit, it gives us one whole year from that time. - AZDisney  610.5 #378 7:22AM
