Good morning mw family!!! Hope everybody had a great night! I have a dilemma, need some help!! Okay so my brother in law is in the military and we were going to stay at Shades. Well yesterday ChipandCo sent out a post a fb that said military families get 40% off at select resorts...so here is the dilemma do we wait until Oct to see what rates will be at other places or go for shades. I also didn't know if we do get that discount at the other hotels would we also get the dining plan included?? My thought was since Shades doesn't offer the dining plan it they still have free dining offered it might end up being cheaper in the long run....Sorry for the rambling lol!!

I'm only guessing but they probably limit the discounted rooms and select resorts may be limited to only a few of those too. You may want to call and verify so you don't miss out in case either of the two get booked. - Jalex239  379.9 #25 8:47AM
Alright so I called, and they are offering PopCentury with the dining plan for 6nights at 1200. Not sure if that is good or not?? I also am not sure if I want to get the dining plan...is it really a good deal?? I know we want to do a couple of character restaurants but thought about bringing our own food for lunch and just doing qs restaurants. If we dont' do the dining plan pop is only 460 for 6 nights. AAAHHHH too much going through my head right now lol!!! - ccmom  187.5 #49 9:59AM
Just to give you an idea.....we are staying at Pop over Thanksgiving (so it is an expensive time) for 5 nights plus dining plan and its going to cost us about $2800! - momknowsbest  3.1 #1377 10:02AM
oh wow so it is a good price I wonder can I reserve it and add the dining plan when ever I decide if I want it? - ccmom  187.5 #49 10:10AM
I forgot to add that it is for 2 adults and 2 kids plus 4 day park hopper pass (no water parks) - momknowsbest  3.1 #1377 10:34AM
I think dining plan has to be added no later than two days before you check in. It may be worth it to do the dining plan. If you only plan on doing a couple of character meals you may want to so the QS plan and pay out of pocket for the couple of character meals. - Jalex239  379.9 #25 11:02AM
Okay that is good to know!! But now the more I look at restaurants and everything the more I am leaning towards the plan, atleast if I get it I don't have to hear my husband complain about how expensive food is lol!! - ccmom  187.5 #49 11:48AM
The 1200 for us is 2 adults and 1 child since our 2nd is only a yr. It only includes dining and room for 1200 I think our ph Passes are like 500 for 5 days, so the total would be close to 1700 for everything. - ccmom  187.5 #49 10:44AM
I am retired military, so my wife and I take the discount on the rooms, which ever one fits our situation. We then use the discounted military tickets or the Stars and Stripes tickets. This allows for us to pay more out of pocket for food instead of using the dining plan. This has allowed us to save from 500 to 750 on our trips. We also eat easy things like sandwiches in the room. Nothing difficult. Doing this allows for a couple of character sit down meals. This is just how we do it. I hope this helps. - wchutch  229.2 #42 1:52PM
Yeah we are going with the discounted park tickets and the discounted rooms but I think we are going for the dining plan so we can enjoy more character meals than we first planned on. - ccmom  187.5 #49 2:48PM
When was that $460 for 6 nights at Pop? My dd and her bff who is Army are planning a trip in Dec. and were already planning to stay at Pop. It sounds like doing this and paying for the dining plan would be less than pay regular price for the room with the free dining plan. - poohbr1205  22.5 #165 4:46PM
It was just released yesterday for the military rates. Our stay is Feb 3-9, I wasn't sure how good of a price it was. We have decided on Ft Wilderness cabins though (my hubby prefers to be out of a hotel) and they are 1200 for the week. But we are splitting it with my sisnlaw and her fam, so 600 a couple doesn't seem to bad!! - ccmom  187.5 #49 5:22PM
Great info! Thank you so much! - poohbr1205  22.5 #165 5:32PM

It will stay the same until someone else gets enough points and quality to pass a couple more people. Even though two people on the list don't post much they still are ahead of the rest of us in quality points so they earned their spot. And Plumiegirl you post QC so you're qc score is high! πŸ˜„ - secretagentangel  11073.2 #9 8:33PM
when you are at the top you tend to move slower because its the same folks that frequent the parks most. So hence the top ten.. trolls ;) - Plumiegirl  10817.8 #11 9:55PM
