Did they have free dining already anytime this year?
 
Two years ago they had free dining in May, but we had to change our dates and just missed it. Did they have free dining already at all this year?

No. First and so far only Free Dining promotion this year is for dates in September.

No general public free dining but they did have a pin code promotion that offered free dining earlier in the year!

Yup, they had a pin code for spring and fall this year. We got both! September is the only general public offer so far though.

How do you get a pin code?

No one knows how Disney selects the recipients of their pin codes. But in general, pin codes are mailed or emailed to random people. Sometimes a person will call WDW reservations and ask if there is a pin code available in their name. Some people have gotten lucky and there is a pin code waiting for them. But most people never receive them. :(

I have no idea why, but we seem to get every pin code that ever comes out. Maybe they just know we're too cheap to go without one? :lmao: I've booked trips previously, registered email and snail mail, and we only go every couple years staying onsite value or mod. Those are the only factors I can think of.

My daughter wants to take her boyfriend to Disney. He has never been there (yeah, I know...ugh). They are 19 and have limited funds. The free dining is only in September right? Is it the same for 2014? Trying to help her out the cheapest way possible :cool1:

There is no way to know when FD will be in the future. There has been talk for quite some time that it will be extinct at some point. So far this year, it is only in Sept as a public offer.

So far free dining has only been released for those select Sept dates. There are rumors that there may be more free dining dates offered in 2013. There are several discussion threads in the Disney Discount Codes and Rates forum:

And the thread about the rumor of more free dining in 2013:

I have asked the CMs at Disney Travel if there is a method to the Madness when it comes to pin code distribution, this is what I was told.." The recipients are chosen at random within the computer system". If you are registered with Disney you are eligible and may or may not receive one. A lot of people on here have said they have gotten one soon after saving vacations for later on the Disneyworld site, others have ordered the vacation video and gotten them. This will be my 5th trip to Disney and I have only received one in the mail one time. My sis in law went once in 2010 and gets them several times a year so it really does seem random and sad for those of us who never get them....:confused3 My friend who went with us in 2008 got one this year for the spring promo....first time she's ever gotten one! :confused:
