    question about bookings?

    ok i have booked with the kids play for free. it is costing me like $1500 for us i believe.. thats all star movies, dinning, and basic tickets for 5 days.

    i just looked up what all star movies, 5 day basic park passes for the 3 of us without dinning is $1300.

    now if they do open the free dinning up to us like they say the will next week.. will that $1300 price stay the same or will it go up?

    because if it does stay $1300 it would be better for me to book with free dinning than the kids play for free. its a $200 difference

    does anyone know more about all this?

    Re: question about bookings?

    I can't say for sure but usually when they offer free dining the cost of the room itself is increased to whatever the rack rate is the for that season. So the cost might be increased from the 1,300 you are seeing now.

    Did you book through a travel agent like Mousefan travel? If so, your agent can look at the numbers and tell you what your options might be.
    See ya,

    In this day and age saving a $100.00 is good. At least it will pay for one tank of gas. LOL.
