I keep checking my e-mail, hoping that a new PIN will be there. Has anyone recently (today/yesterday) gotten the free dining PIN? OR, I'm wondering if they sent them all out last week and I should stop looking/hoping/wishing?

Do I understand correctly that you booked the free dining INSTEAD of the 40% off and then upgraded to deluxe dining? How much did the DxDDp upgrade cost?

So, we are looking to plan a long weekend getaway with the kids and grandparents . . . called Disney today to check to see if I had a pin . . . had to give my name and address and the lady was very patient, said she could check a few different places . . . and then she asked -- "will [dh's name] be traveling with you?" Of course he will, so she said that he had a pin and that it expires later this month!! She said that they are still going out in email and US mail, but that his had already gone out. Go figure, they send it to the one that doesn't do the planning, and he probably deleted it!

My hubby got one in his email. It's free dining, hotel, and theme park tickets for 2 adults, 1 junior, and one child for $1,284. We're only 3 people, so it would be less for us. But, it came on Feb 7th.

They're probably still coming out sporadically. I just received the $500 gift card pin yesterday.

I received a PIN for Free Dining on February 5th. The dates are August 16-October 1. It must be booked by February 26. I received one in my "regular" email inbox and one to my separate "junk mail" inbox that was addressed to my three kids....it's how I requested our planning DVD.

Any chance for late June to early July ??? Never would have thought that they would extend the 4 plus 3 special so maybe they will throw in Dining too...:cloud9: I can dream, right? What about Dining through the Disney Visa? Any likelihood there?

I would doubt they would offer FD in June or July since they extended the 4/3 deal until August 15. FD last year ended 9/20ish but if your stay went past that date, you still had FD for up to 10 days past the end of the promo). They also offered it in the winter (Nov and Dec) which was a HUGE surprise. The goal of FD is to bring people to the parks when kids are in school and it's hurricane season.

How do you get these codes sent to you? We've had Disney Visas for years and never got any of those and we just booked our first stay onsite for May 2009. We've never had Annual Passes either. Does that put us out of the running for the codes?

I thought you could only use one code at a time? Did earlier poster get both free dining and 40% off?

We stayed onsite twice last year...once was for Free Dining. I don't know if that's why we received a PIN. My advice is to request a WDW planning DVD. I also requested a DVC brochure and a DCL brochure. Good luck!

I got a turquoise mailer today that has Mickey Mouse on the front. It is not a postcard. It opens up and the inside says Kids 3-9 Stay Play & Dine free when you buy 5 night 6 day vacation package. $794.00 per adult based on double occupancy at a Value.
Says the number of rooms allocated for this offer is limited. We just moved and I called to change my address a couple weeks ago. We also ordered the maps. I dont have kids 3-9.

We haven't been to Disney in years and planning a trip in July. What are the pins? How can we get our names in the system to receive one?

Okay, Please forgive me for sounding bitter.....
We have been to Disney 6 times, we have NEVER received a pin code. meanwhile my friend who has been three times has gotten one SIX YEARS IN A ROW!!!!! ***. there seems to be no rhyme or reason to who gets a code.
I know I sound bitter but toss me a bone here Mickey....

If it is the same as last year, these are check-in dates. Last year's Free Dining ended on 9/20, which was our check-in date. We stayed for 8 nights with Free Dining.

I may have mentioned this before, but I always wanted to go to Disney and could not afford it. (I booked for Spet 26-Oct 1 with the free dining PIN. $1,100 at the Pop Century!!) People were saying they got mail from Disney Destinations. So, I looked up their address and wrote them a letter asking to be put on the mailing list. I now get PIN codes in the mail. I also signed up for the DVD three times. One for me, one for my sister in law, and one for my sister. I used three different email addresses. All 3 email addresses get PIN code emails. I also did the customized maps, signed up to win vacations, signed up for a wedding wishbook, and signed up for the movie rewards. I figured I'd sign up for anything as long as it was free. When it asked if I want to receive emails and special offers, I clicked yes.
