That's made my mind up - Universal for 9 nights and DVC points for 4 nights next November.

Thanks for the info Stu.

Yes you would. The last eligible check in date is 3rd October and you'd get it for your entire stay. We've done this before by booking the last date before the Easter black out dates start.

Prices are fixed and static once the promotion starts, so there won't be increased or fluctuations due to demand. What does happen though is that standard/cheaper category rooms sell out leaving only view/preferred/more expensive categories left, so it can look like prices have gone up at the top level, but when you still down further it's actually due to the available room categories.

As always, depends on availibility and price. Confirms summer is now quiet time at WDW, something us with DVC have known for a good few years now with booking patterns.
Will be interesting to see how much availibility they offer on it, and how many DVC rooms they offer up through breakage and retained inventory this year at 330 days.

Do we have to get tickets through Disney to get the dining plan? We dont go until Xmas this year but wouldnt want to
Miss the free DDP if we do decide to go next summer but then with 7 of us the saving on a ticket upgrade can be huge ://
You have to book accommodation and park tickets together as a package for a minimum of 5 nights to quailify. That can either be direct with Disney, or other agents offering the free dining promotion.

No, as the campsite isn't bookable through the UK, only the US, and this is a UK promotion. I think that's just the full name of the resort, but you'd be looking at the cabins only

Some TAs offer it, some don't but moght have have their own offer. TUI don't do the Disney $200 gift card, but have done their own $150 offer in the past. TC often have a higher offer of $300. VH do the $200 gift card. Just check when you get quotes.
