Recent FD Pin

Seems many have received it. Figured a poll would put it into better perspective. I did not receive it and hope I do.

I fall into another category: Yes, but I'm not sure if I'm going to use it

Unhappy Did Not Get One

I never seem to get the pin codes, nor was I offered the bounce back when I was there last. I'm hoping to get it, as it lands right at the beginning of my upcoming trip. I never seem to get discount codes.

Sorry for the newby question but what ideally should prompt a PIN to go to someone. Being a member of DVC, having a reservation etc... I havent received the FD PIN (which I assume comes via email) and not sure I will/should. I have a reservation for 12/13 currently.

Pin codes are random. Some believe registering on Disney's website and doing price inquiries helps your odds. Also ordering the Disney planning DVD. They come both by mail and email. People have gotten them that have reservations, people who don't, people who have been there before and people who haven't, so basically you just have to be lucky.

I was thinking about this last night. I've recieved pretty much every PIN code there has been for the last 2 years. We have booked our last 3 WDW vacations online on the WDW website. I wonder if that has anything to do with triggering all the PIN codes? How many people recieved this code that use a travel agent or book by phone?

I didn't get the PIN but my sister did and we were able to apply it to both rooms we had booked together. I have gotten most Pins that I have seen posted here over the last dew years.I am the family WDW planner and have saved reservations on the Disney website, ordered the DVD, anything else I can think of. I did book a trip last week using my e-mail address.

My sister who had the PIN (never got the e-mail) has done nothing with Disney since she last went in 2009. She does have a Disney Visa and sometimes get a PIN. So she has done none of the things that people think might cause Disney to issue a PIN.

One of the great mysteries....

My DH seems to get Pins all the time. He's convinced he gets them because when we visited the parks in 2010, he was approached by a CM to do a survey using their hand held electronic device. I never get pins :-( Thankful someone in the household does!

When we planned our trip a few years ago, I opened accounts on the Disney website using my e-mail in my name and a joint account with my husband in his name. DH consistently gets every PIN offer sent in the mail or through e-mail. Me? Nothing! It does seem that they randomly attach to certain people.

I didn't get an email but when I called I did have it. She told me I had 2 pins-some room discount for Sept pin also. I gladly used the pin as my dates were oct. 17-27. Saved $1840!

Count me among those who have been going to WDW for many, many years. Sometimes booking through WDW; sometimes booking through a TA --- but I have never received an email PIN.

My question for those of you who have received PINS --- what sorts of restrictions are attached to the current FD pins? I understand about date restrictions. But what about resort selection and room category selection.

I have my son and his bride booked at POFQ in a King room for their honeymoon in September. According to my TA, the current public FD promo is not available for the King category.

Just wondering IF I were to be so lucky to receive the email PIN, would I be able to use it for my currently booked POFQ King category?

I have received several pins over the years including this free dining one and I always book over the phone. I have not requested a DVD this year, but I have in the past. I am also a disneyshopping.com customer, and I have an account at waltdisneyworld.com. Other than that I have no clue why I get them.

Have you talked to your son about a room with double beds? I would give up a king, yes even on my honeymoon, for free dining.

I do know that I could not book a preffered room with the FD discount. Other than that I am not sure of any restrictions.

I got the pin, but can't use it as our dates don't match.

I think it's the lack of understanding as to why some people get PINs consistently and others never get them that's what really annoying. I've gone ever year since 2006, sometimes more than once per year, and have never received a PIN. I've requested DVDs, I've priced packages, etc., but nada. I got a great deal for the dates I wanted with ***, which I booked once I heard that the free dining offer wasn't going to cover the end of August, so it's not that big a deal not getting the free dining PIN. Yet it's still driving me crazy that as soon as they announce free dining only for September, and then do the RO discount for the end of August, that they then also start sending the free dining PINs. It's like they want to drive us crazy. I'm already close to the edge as it is, it doesn't take much to push me over.
