[QUOTE=fjs08;1056347]Article talks about the “free ride” to WDW.
Sorry, but there is no free lunch as they say.
If it’s “free” why would Disney offer it. There has to be a charge built in or spread around somehow, either in the food, parks, or resorts.
It’s about as free as “free dining”.
Of course the costs for ME are spread around the Disney Resorts balance sheet to offset costs. Whether it is a couple bucks from every room booked or it’s just that more people taking ME are not getting the deeper discounts given to passholders, the money to pay for ME is covered one way or another, even if it’s covered by bumping the price of a bottle of water by $.20.
