    We are coming to Disney this August and are using our parents DVC. We didn't get the dining plan although everyone is telling us to do so. Do DVC members ever get deals on the dining plan? I feel like I wouldn't be saving money with the current prices.

    Hi Kerri,

    You will just love staying at a Disney Vacation Club resort this August!  I am so glad that your parents are letting you use their points to experience this.  The Disney Dining Plan is economical if you plan to use a Table Service meal, Quick Service meal, and snack every day.  I usually will make all the Table Service reservations in advance to make sure that I am able to have the restaurants and times that I want on each day we are at Walt Disney World.  If you still want to add this on, your parents will need to call as they are the Members and the Disney Dining Plan will need to be paid in full at this time.  You can add this on up to 48 hours before your vacation.  Recently, DVC Members are able to purchase a Tables in Wonderland Card which gives you a 20% discount on your meal and alcohol at most of the Table Service restaurants on Walt Disney World property.  The Member will need to purchase this card and be present to use this benefit.  Members also have some savings at other restaurants which changes and can be found on the member website or also on the Portable Perks card that is handed to Members upon check-in to the resort. At this time, there are no other discounts on dining.  I would see what kind of dining that you will be doing when you come next month and see if any of the Dining Plans would work for you, and then talk with your parents to see if they will call for you as well.  Have a magical trip, Kerri!  Thank you for the question and let me know if I can help you further.
