YUP! :thumbsup2
Got it yesterday via email.

FIRST PIN in over 25 visits on site!!:lmao:
Meanwhile we are already booked at the SAME time with FREE DINING on the bounceback promo from last trip
BUT......
I added a few days as that bounce back started later then we wanted to arrive, (so we were paying for food o/o/p) so NOW, I get to re-book and get FREE DINING for first half of trip. DH said add even MORE days as we're shopping for a vacation home in Fla this year and rather than having to fly back down to "check out areas" we'll just use resort as our base and EAT FOR FREE TOO!
LIFE IS GOOD!!! :cheer2:

Yes we got it too!! This is our first PIN number and we have been going at least twice a year for the last 4 years. Sadly we can't use it. I'm a little curious, which dining plan is being offered free? Is it the new counter service one or the regular one?

How do I get on their list for a pin code? Are all codes e-mailed or can I call to see if there is a code under my name?

It's the basic dining plan ~ 1 TS, 1 CS and 1 Snack per person per day.

Codes are emailed or sent snail mail, but you can call and ask if there are any associated with your name. I just did that and sadly, not a code to be had. I have gotten a couple of them in the past that I couldn't use, though.

Good luck to you!

We got that PIN too, yesterday. We just got the one for 40% off last month, which I booked for Dec. Also got the offer for kids stay and dine free. Makes me wonder just how slow Disney thinks it will be this year.

Yes, we got it and it's the only reason we're going. It's such a good deal, we can't pass it up!

I've gotten two pin code emails in the last few weeks! I think I got that one, but it was a bit obscure about the savings.

Too bad, we aren't planning on going this year. It's not the economy, just not in our plans (maybe December but don't know right now).

I got this offer too. We just had to cancel our March trip and we were thinking of rescheduling for September. This made those plans official! 5 days, 4 nights, 5 day base ticket with free dining at Pop for 845.80!!!!

Hi all,

Question: We've been toying with the idea of going at the end of August, not sure because the little guy isn't even 2. Anyway, I got a 40% and free dining. My FIL is military and can get us companion tix for $100 and we pay our own food or I could buy the 1 day base, the military tix and get free dining. Just not sure which would be most sensible. Love the DP but would probably end up doing a show and paying for that anyway. Thoughts??????

They sure don't seem to be sending many offers to the western half of the country!? Got something for DL last week.
Guess I have to wait for my Disney Visa free Dining offer.....hurryhurryhurryup....popcorn::

You got a code for 40% off your room AND free dining??? I haven't heard of that. Or did you get two separate codes, because you can't use them together.

Is your FIL going with you? Because he has to be there to change the vouchers into tickets. Some people are saying he would have to be there every time you used the tickets, that I don't know.

If your FIL is going and you have 40% off and free dining I would get tickets with FIL and do the dining and room promo and just save the one day tickets for your next trip.

If you only have 40% off the room OR free dining you need to run the numbers to see which will save you more money (for example it would save more money to use the 40% if your staying at the Poly then to get the free dining) but I would still go with the military tix if you can.

Yes the price was for 2 adults. Pretty excited but worried about the weather! Only been down in March.

Does it mean that reservations have to start on the 16th or can you arrive before as long as you are staying on the 16th??

If you arrive before the 16th, your FD package wouldn't start until the 16th.
The FD package starts on the 16th.

The 40% and the free dining are two separate offers, I'm trying to figure out which is best. As for the military tickets, it is my understanding that the companion tix can be bought at your local base and then be exchanged at the window for tix. Does anyone know for sure. Another info site stated that, also when I called Disney they seemed to think that too. Can anyone confirm?

Good morning,

We received the pin code for the free dining etc from 8/16 on...now our problem will be..do we book the 4/3 deal which is offered thru 8/15 or the free dining deal from 8/16 on.

Since I am stuck at the office, and can't call Disney reservations, would people be so kind as to post what they are getting offered for stays at a deluxe resort with the pin code offer for dates in August?? If you like you can send me an e-mail with the info.

thank you.

I got it late last week, and, for those who have been wondering about multiple rooms:

1st CM told me "only one room on a PIN code." I had read on here that people had booked multiples on a PIN code in the past, but wondered if the free dining might be different. BUT, I called back later and . . .

2nd CM told me I could book "three rooms on a PIN code" (as long as I was in one of the rooms, of course)!

So, went ahead and booked for a big family trip to the POLY!!

Our room, with me, DH, and DS (3 y.o.) for 4 night, 5 day plus Park Hopper plus the free dining, 24th-28th of Sept. (wanted to make the first weekend of Food & Wine Fest!) at Polynesian was $2432. (Other family rooms were different prices b/c of different combinations of adults/kids.)

Yay! :banana: :banana: :banana:

They seem to be handing out this 8/16 - 10/1 free dining pin like it's free candy. I have received 4 pin codes in the last two weeks. One pin code for the kids play and dine free deal and 3 pin codes for the fall free dining dates. Until two weeks ago I had NEVER received a pin code of any kind from Disney and have been in their "mailing" system for at least 5 years - I got everything, disneyshopping.com, DisneyInsider, Disney DVC offers, Disney Movie Club offers, etc.

Since 2005, each April they usually release the fall free dining dates for the general public - dates pretty similar to the pin codes that are being send out in such abundance now. This seems very strange to me and I really want to see what is going to happen with the fd offer in April.

I am wondering if there will be no general public offer this year, or if there is maybe different dates.It seems stupid to offer a selective code and then 6 weeks later offer it to the GP anyway.

Sometimes the dates do change. In the past they offered a BB for dates mid-August to early October, but when it was released to the public the dates where then late August to the end of September. Obviously some dates were much more desired than others therefore, they shorten the window of dates. I booked the week of August 16th along with alot of others here on the boards. This was the first time we could book this early in August since 2005. I couldn't decided what to do, so booked 2 rooms for that week and will decide later if I plan to take that trip or not.

I am booked with the bounceback from last year.I am thinking that Disney will either change dates,shorten dates, or not offer it to the public this year.More likely changed dates since the code offer starts 8/16, and my bounceback offer starts 8/23. Maybe a gen public code for dates starting8/30?

I just got this email as well. Of course, we can't use it because that is right when school starts (I'm a teacher).
