I keep seeing references to free dining. What's that all about?

The past three years they have offered people free dining (1 table service, one counter service and one snack for every night of your stay) if they booked thier trips for Hurricaine season, Aug-Sept. We are all chomping at the bit and dying to know if they will offer it this year. Last year they opened it up to the public in April and since April is near, we are all getting into a frenzy waiting to see if they offer it.

Welcome to the boards!

From the Dining Plan FAQ (http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1305783):
What is "free dining"? Will they offer free dining this year?
During the heart of Hurricane Season, Disney has offered a free dining promotion to help encourage reluctant guests to visit during this normally very quiet time of the year. The free dining promotion requires guests to book a Disney MYW package, paying for the hotel at the rack rate, and in return offers the Dining Plan as a free add-on to the package. For the UK/European residents offer, the free dining promotion had to be booked between August 25 and November 6, 2006. The free dining promotion has also been offered to guests while on-site at WDW if staying at Disney resort hotels during December 2006. The free dining promotion applies for arrivals starting August 5 (for the bounce-back offer) or August 12 (for the UK/European offer), through September 29, 2007. There is no indication, one way or another, whether free dining will be offered to other targeted groups and/or to the general public.
