Definitely taking advantage of the Busch, SeaWorld, and Universal ticket deals.

Also, I want the Disney Free Dining Plan, but I am wondering ...

For our next Orlando venture, we are staying both inside and outside of Disney because we cannot afford to stay inside the World for the entire trip duration. We are renting a DVC from someone on the DIS Discussion Forums ( for 4 nights, but we are buying 8-day Park Hoppers and staying outside of the park for the remainder of the trip ...

Do we still qualify for Free Dining on those 4 nights when we're at the DVC?

The folks at Holiday World send word that in June, each ticket holder who donates at least two cans of food (high protein, ready-to-eat meals preferred) will receive $5 in Holibucks (in-park money) to use in the park that day toward meals, games or souvenirs.
