I was doing some searching trying to decide if the basic DDP, versus a Tables in Wonderland membership, was still “worth it” for us.
The new 2010 rates for the DDP are $41.99/ per adult, BUT during “PEAK SEASON” the price increases to $47.99/ per adult. :eek: I was thinking, “ok, “peak season” must just be the short time around various holidays when attendance is really high.” Ummm, I think I was severely wrong!
Over at Mousemisers they are listing the following date ranges in 2010 for the “Peak Season Pricing” for the DDP. Are they SERIOUS?
The Disney Dining plan is priced based on your travel dates, and is higher priced during the following peak times:
■February 12 – April 10, 2010
■June 4 – August 14, 2010
■December 17 – 31, 2010
I am sorry, but that’s just RIDICULOUS! Why all of the sudden is 1/2 of February & ALL of March peak season for 2010? Easter Break isn’t until APRIL this year & with the exception of President’s weekend in February why is anything else in that range considered peak?
When I called to make a DVC room reservation & ADRs a couple days ago for our impromptu February trip it seemed as if the place is going to be DEAD! There wre five resorts with open studio villas, & I got ADRs for O’hana, 1900 Park Fare, & Whispering Canyon with EASE! Tell me, what is so peak season about that?
Oh man, I do not like those date ranges & if they are going to charge me $47.99/per adult for the dining plan during a random NON-HOLIDAY weekend in late February I am sooooo cancelling this DDP right now.
