the rest of my "no dining plan" trip results

Wed, 2017-05-17 15:17
Hi All,

So we did it, a week at Disney without the dining plan. As you may remember from the previous thread, the first day was a great success - we ate well AND were well under the dining plan cost.

The rest of the week proved to be the same. We ate where we wanted, ordered what we wanted and the grand total spent on food for the two of us, for 8 Disney days was $697.86. The DDP would have cost us $942.62, so a great savings!

The only day we went "over" the DDP cost was our Animal Kingdom day. Lunch at Tusker House (the ROL package) was ridiculous! $110 for a buffet lunch ... just crazy! That, and a QS dinner put us over the DDP for the day, but that was the only day.

So, I'm still a "free" DDP girl, but won't be paying for it again. I think the only way you do break even/save a bit is if you're doing A LOT of in the park character meals.

Hope this helps someone else be brave and take the no DDP plunge!

Fireworks dining for MK?

Wed, 2017-05-17 03:35
I remember a while back seeing one of the restaurants - Contemporary? - was doing a dessert meal near windows to watch fireworks from. Can someone refresh my memory on that? Any opinions of if it was worth it?

Thanks!

Old Key West - Early Check In

Tue, 2017-05-16 21:31
So we are about 30 days away (ok, 33 days but who's counting?) and I am looking to do an early check in at OKW. So I have a couple of questions. Does the early check in allow me to decided which building to reserve a room in and if so what does anyone recommend at that resort? We have reservations for a 2 bedroom villa for our party of six people. What locations are ideal?

Thanks! :thumbsup:

Magical Express

Tue, 2017-05-16 17:44
I can't remember - can I take Magical Express one way if I don't have a package? Our plan is to stay at Universal first (so I guess the cheapest way for three people to get from the airport is a cab?), then switch to Disney, but it will be a Room Only reservation. Does that still qualify for ME? My husband suggest we stay at Disney first for three days, then move to Universal, then move back to Disney - OMG. I told him that is insane!

How much does it really cost to spend a day in Disneyland?

Tue, 2017-05-16 14:47
Hello everyone,

New member here :mickey:
I'm considering to take my wife to Disneyland as a birthday gift, it's been almost 20 years since the last time I went there and I was 8 years old back then so at that age I didn't realize how much things cost, also, things are way more expensive nowadays.

So, straight to the point, I would like to know from someone who has gone recently: in average, how much does it cost to spend a day in Disneyland L.A.?

Don't hesitate in going into detail, I mean: What did you do? Besides the entry ticket, did you spend money in other kind of things?
Anything you can tell me so I can get an idea of how much money it is needed.

Thank you in advance =)

DVC villa bathrooms

Tue, 2017-05-16 14:12
We recently stayed in a studio at the Polynesian and we really loved the bathroom set up. Do any of the other studios have the same bathroom layout? I was under the impression that only the poly had this bathroom configuration, but my sister in law recently mentioned that the studios at Grand Floridian have similar bathrooms. I am talking about the two bathroom configuration with one bath having sink and shower, the other bath having sink, tub, toilet. Thanks!

View from Poly villas

Tue, 2017-05-16 13:41
We're considering a lake-view villa at Poly and I'm curious about the view. Do the bungalows get in the way of the view from the villas? We've always wanted to stay there and it sounds like this time may be our best option. Thanks in advance!
