    Walt Disney Travel Company should offer the same exact thing to us in the U.S. so we can all have the same advantage. No wonder so many of the rooms are already taken before we even get to see the 2018 prices. How sad. Very disappointing.

  2. SAM says

    We booked our 2018 trip on the day the offer came out last Thursday.

    Staying in Beach club for a week in November, pricey and a long time to wait but super excited!

  3. Mike V says

    You know, I first read elizabeth’s comments and said sour grapes. Then I went back up and read the offer that is available!!!!
    I have sour grapes now too!!! Why is the dining offer pretty much available throughout the year?
    Residents in the states only have certain times that are (for me) never able to take advantage of the benefit.
    This is eye opening to me, oh and then throw $200 more at them as well.

  4. Sarah says

    Mike – note that the UK get ‘less’ free dining. For a mod they get QS plan whereas US get the normal plan. For a value resort the UK get breakfast whereas the US get the QS plan. Top that with the minimum $750pp to fly from the UK and I don’t think you need to worry about sour grapes! So basically if you’ve enough money to stay at a deluxe resort it’s a great deal, but if you want a cheaper vacation not so much.

    Hope that makes you feel better!

  5. Rich says

    Hi Elizabeth and Mike V – I’m from the UK and have taken advantage of this offer for this summer. Whilst I agree that the offer should be available to everyone, we don’t get the same room rate reductions that US residents can access. It would be great if all offers were available universally.

  6. Chris H says

    I understand that you probably don’t get the same deal as us brits but for us it’s the main family holiday for the year and for a family of 4 can range from £4000 to £8000 which ain’t cheap

  7. Linda says

    I agree with Elizabeth and Mike V – it is a slap in the face to people in USA every time Disney offers these deals and perks to travelers from England and even Brazil! Who at Disney is responsible for this deal and why is it NEVER offered to us in the states?!?! It is not a cheap vacation for us either!!
    Euro Disney needs tourists, so make these offers applicable over there for citizens of England! If WDW is in need of guests, give the citizens of the USA the opportunity to take advantage of this deal in order to increase WDW business!!!!!!!!
    Many of us would LOVE to be able to afford going to the Happiest Place on Earth!!!

  8. Tricia says

    Why don’t they have deals like this for the U.S.? Also, why are they already announcing UK’s 2018 plans before they’ve announced this year’s Free Dining Plan for the U.S.?

  9. Paula says

    I’m one of ‘them’ from the UK, adding to the US economy, and yeah….. Sour grapes!!

  10. Mike V says

    While I am glad that other residents from the states share my displeasure I also welcome the other side to the argument.
    What I do not want to hear is how flights make up for the difference though. What is it a 10 hour flight? I hop on any 10 hour flight I am going to pay the same.
    Rich – In the states when we get the free dining plan, room rates are at full price, there is no additional discounts offered when you get the free dining.
    Chris – AND????? What do you think it costs me for my family of 4????
    Paula – thanks for contributing, oh and if Disney Paris ever offered deals to US only that would better the deal you are getting across the lake, I would help you…..sour grapes.

  11. Rich says

    Mike V – I am aware that you don’t have access to both the room discount and ‘free dining’ at the same time. However, I understand that there are room discounts available for you at other times of the year. For UK residents the only meaningful discount is ‘free dining’.
    By the way, you don’t pay the same for any 10 hour flight. Flights to Orlando from the UK cost approximately twice that of even the longest flights from mainland USA. Rightly or wrongly, I guess WDTC are trying to give UK residents an incentive to travel, softening the blow of the high cost of air fares.

  12. Abi says

    We have booked a 2 week holiday for this summer (U.K. Residents) to WDW without any free dining offers and having looked at prices for next year it would probably be about the same. We were lucky enough to get 25% off our room rate for this year which is about he same as we would have spent on the Disney dining package anyway. If you’re someone that would buy the dining package anyway it’s no real different saving, if you would only get it as a freebie then maybe it is?
    Flights aren’t cheap but do vary massively from different airlines and just a factor or doing long haul. Euro Disney never seem to offer as good value deals. We looked at doing a 3 night stay for the 4 of us (kids 1 and 8) and it was over £3000 with dining at Easter time!
    There should be better offers for US residents too but I think he general
    Idea is brits are a bit dim and if they can get us there cheaper we will spend more money in the parks to make up for it!!

  13. Hallie says

    While I do wish we US citizens were given pricing information in a similar time frame, I do not feel jealous that UK citizens get this deal. It makes good business sense for Disney and the USA in general. UK citizens (or any other country for that matter) bring money from their home nation and spend it here, thus helping our economy. That is what tourism is all about!

  14. Ruth says

    Do you know if the free dining will only be for 2017 or is it usual to sometimes offer it for the same year? Wanting to go in September but wanting for a good deal

  15. Dave says

    Instead of moaning that the UK price is cheaper, or they get more. Just go to the website and change the settings to the UK site. It’s very easy. Then book it and pay in pounds.

    I’ve done this 5 or 6 times, booking in the US from the UK and vice versa.

    It’s really pretty simple.

  16. Disney Momma says

    Ah, US citizens cannot just book the UK offer, as they ask for proof of your citizenship, as in showing them your United Kingdom passport when you check into the room.

  17. Deb says

    I saw the 2017 free dinning and was bummed because I have my trip planned for January of 2018.
    It would be nice if the 2017 was extended into 2018, hint, hint, Disney.

  18. Helen says

    I’m stopping at a value hotel. I’m from the UK and we only get a free breakfast not the quick service dinning plan.

  19. Kristen says

    Hi, can anyone tell me what hotels are excluded from Free Dining UK plan? Just doing my research about what might be offered to the US. Thank you!
