Book a 2016 package that includes a FREE Dining Plan for selected arrivals 1st January – 15th March 2016 and 3rd April – 30th November 2016. Stays are subject to room availability. You must stay for at least 5 nights and include at least a 14-day Ultimate ticket to qualify. Other restrictions apply – see site for details.
When you book a Deluxe or Deluxe Villa resort, you get a FREE standard Disney Dining Plan, which offers one table-service meal and one quick-service meal each day, plus one snack and a refillable mug to use at your resort. And if you stay at either Old Key West or Saratoga Springs resorts, you get 30% off the rack rate in addition to the FREE dining plan!
When you book a Moderate resort, you get a FREE Quick Service Dining Plan, which offers two quick-service meals each day, plus one snack and a refillable mug to use at your resort.
When you book a Value resort, you get a FREE breakfast for each day of your stay. This offers one quick-service meal each day. In the past they’ve let people use this credit any time, not just breakfast, and in fact you could use three days’ credits in the same day to have three meals, but it’s not clear whether that will continue in the future.
Any of the FREE plans (including breakfast) can be upgraded to a higher-level plan, including the Deluxe Dining Plan, by paying the cost difference. Current UK dining plan prices are below, but be aware the prices can and do change from time to time as the exchange rates change:
- Breakfast: £11.99 adults (10+), £4.99 children (3-9)
- Quick Service: £28.99 adults (10+), £11.99 children (3-9)
- Standard: £41.99 adults (10+), £13.99 children (3-9)
- Deluxe: £73.99 adults (10+), £20.99 children (3-9)
So for example, if you want to upgrade from the Breakfast to the Standard Dining Plan, you’ll pay £30 per adult and £9 per child, per night. Be aware that the Deluxe Dining Plan is a truly massive amount of food if you use every credit; upgrade to it only if you’re a Scottish Highland Games champion or eat like one.
If you book this offer by 9th July 2015, you get additional bonuses:
- $200 Disney Spending Money (per booking)
- A 14-day Ultimate Ticket for the price of a 7-day ticket, per guest (£6 savings per person). You can also optionally include a 21-day Ultimate Ticket, but it’s not discounted.
Book by 3rd November 2015.
UK visitors get 30% off rack rates at either Old Key West or Saratoga Springs resorts for stays from 1st January 2016 through 31 December 2016. There is no minimum stay, but if you stay 5 nights or more and meet the other requirements, you can combine this offer with the Free Dining offer, for really eye-popping savings. Other restrictions apply – see site for details.
We have charts of 2015 rack rates (in dollars) for these hotels: Saratoga Springs or Old Key West. 2016 rates are not yet out, but it appears that Disney UK is pricing their packages based on the rates for 2015.
We have stayed at both of these Deluxe Villa resorts, and while they’re some of the further ones from the parks, the Disney transportation system works very well, and each of them has its own dedicated bus service that is not shared with any other resort. Both resorts have studios that are more like a Deluxe hotel room as well as 1-bedroom or 2-bedroom villas that have a full kitchen and living room. The rooms at Old Key West are among the largest at Walt Disney World. They are both quiet, peaceful respites from the madness in the theme parks. Both are quite near each other, and near Downtown Disney, which has a wide variety of food and entertainment options. You can take a boat from either resort to Downtown Disney, or walk if you’re in the mood.
