People always think that FREE dining is the best promotion Disney offers but depending on your family size, what type of dining plan you prefer and where you want to stay its not always true. FREE always sounds better but what about 30% FREE room? Here is a comparison of the deals so you can have an idea of which one is a better deal for your family.
If you are a smaller family, have children under 9, and are staying in Deluxe or Deluxe villa then a room discount is a better offer, especially if you are doing the quick service dining plan.
Family of 4 (2 adults and children ages 4 and 6) staying at the Beach Club in a pool view for 6 nights with 6 day base ticket and plus dining will save $873 with FREE Dining and save $903.76 with 30% room discount.
A couple staying at the Grand Floridian for 6 nights with a 6 day base ticket and plus dining will save $667.08 with FREE Dining and save $746.52 with 30% room discount.
If you are a larger family staying in a value or moderate resort then the FREE dining is a better offer.
Family of 5 (2 adults and children ages 10, 12, 14) staying at Fort Wilderness Cabins for 6 nights with 6 day base ticket and plus dining will save $1667.70 with FREE Dining and save $479.16 with 25% room discount.
Another thing to consider is the ages of the people in your family. Families with children under 9 will not save as much as families with children 10 and older with free dining since the children 10 and older are being charged the adult rate for dining. Families with young children may save more with room discounts depending on resort choice.
