Hi all. If you had to pick a date this August when the free dining starts, which date would you say?

Hmmm I would 'guess' August 18th. It seems like it always starts the weekend after my kids school starts back up.

I remember reading that there was a bounceback offer starting August 19. I'm sure of the start date but not to sure about the end date, maybe Sept 26. One year the general public offer was a week later than the bounceback, so it could start on August 26, that is if they offer it at all.

This was my prediction as well. The few years prior it started earlier in the month, but I believe last year it started this week.

This is also why we're not even considering free dining this year. I work at a university that starts classes the week I think free dining will start. Even if it is offered a week earlier we usually like to go for at least 10 nights so that would really be cutting our trip short. Right now I'm booked with a 20% off PIN and hoping to get my kids into the YES classes being offered.

This gives historical data for all discounts at WDW. Scroll down a bit for a chart and links ot previous years. Not that one can easily deduce if and when FD may be offered by looking at this, but it's fun to look at to help make your predictions.
