Ok so I have turned into a crazed obsessed planner. Chaning my mind all the time, I need to stick to one thing but now I think the point mayyyy save us some money.
We are currently booked through Disney with the Free Dining Plan at WL.
I started looking at the DIS boards and found decent priced points for 'rent'
So I inquired and the Old Key West Resort is available.
So looking for opinions...would you stay with the Free DDP at the WL or book using points at the Old Key West and buy the Dining Plan and Hoppers Seperately? Is the OKW more of a commute to all the parks vs WL being so close to MK?
We've stayed at OKW and loved it. The buses there seemed to run very efficiently. There is a boat to DTD right from the OKW dock. Since I don't know how much per point they are asking, it's hard to say which would be better for you. The free dining is worth about $40/adult and $11/kid per day. At least that's what you would pay to add it.
Second star to the right and straight on until morning!
I think it depends on how much dining matters to you. If you want to sample some table service restaurants that maybe you wouldn't get to enjoy otherwise, then I'd go for free dining. If that aspect doesn't matter that much to you, then I'd go for the points.
