2013 Free Dining Watch

Sorry if there is an open thread on this one, if so can you direct me?

Would love to get free dining during our visit next summer. Would save a bundle for the eleven of us!

Watching too!

Hoping that maybe they'll put out a FD offer for 2013 this coming fall.

For our last trip, we got a the FD promo offered for our 2011 trip in the fall of 2010, so we were able to get everything booked early. I hate waiting to book until the spring, but will do so if need to (don't want to book now for September 2013 without the FD, and then have to rebook with the codes). I know that FD isn't guaranteed, but we've been lucky with all of our fall trips so far!!

Yes, I remember the 2011 free dining offer. It came out in August of 2010. It was so nice knowing that early that we had that.

Hoping for January just after the holidays. Kinda frustrating that the trip Is so close I am feeling very unprepared .... Depending on what comes out we may have to move our room only res and now I am worried another suitable accommodation might not be found.

We are crossing our fingers for free dining for the first week of March 2013. I don't know if there was FD last year or not but it seems possible???

just to throw speculation to the wind there BUT I called yesterday to add a night to the beginning of our January trip (God Willing ) and the wonderful CM on the other end of the phone said "make sure you keep watch for specials that might be popping up soon that might save you some real money!" --- so maybe we'll see some "free dining" in January? Here's hoping for "pure magic all wrapped up in pixie dust"

I was just on the phone changing our resort and asked about FD. She said she did not know when they would come out.

Then when we were ending the convo, she said to make sure to check the disney website next week to make sure we get savings. I said, what did your say? She stumbled and said make sure you make your restaurant reservations next week. Well , we won't be 180 days out till late August and she knew that. I just said thank you as I know she was giving me a tip. We had discussed that we were waiting to see if any deals came out before we add the dining plan.

So, I am pretty sure something will be announced next week!!
