A friend of mine just fwded me an email she got with the FD pin. They can't use it because it's not for their dates. I clicked on the link and it's giving me the "Your 15-digit personal identification number is unique to your household. If the number is not pre-populated in the field below, the pin can be found within the e-mail or postal mail." spiel, so I'm guessing that means I won't get anywhere if I call, right?

my understanding is pins are specific to the person/household and they match them up to the address, date of birth, person, email address etc that they were originally sent to. Pins are not meant to be shared.

regretfully, if your friend can't use her pin, it means that no one else can use it either

With only 2 adults staying at value resorts P/S/D saves me less than $260 so I'm so thrilled my DH got a Free Dining PIN CODE email today!!! A much better value for the incentive to book!

What do you have to do to get a PIN?

So does this mean 'free dining' in it's previous form is now dead?

Excited!!

So thanks to the helpful hints from the folks on this board, I was able to upgrade from All Star Movies to the Caribbean Resort and still save $640! This is for 2 adults 2 children for 1/19-1/26 with 7 day park passes and the dining plan! Granted it took me an accumulated hold time with DW of 5 hours...no lie..... but it was well worth it.

Thanks all for posting!

We're also 2 adults staying at a Value, but we saved about $400 with the P/S/D deal.

So excited!

No kids meals for me!

My TA got everything worked out! We switched from AoA to Pop and added quick-service dining. This added about $10 to one reservation (3 adults), and subtracted $2 from the other (2 adults, 1 infant). So it's like my parents and I got dining for about $3 each, and Disney's paying my sister and BIL $1 each to eat.

However, based on what Pop would have originally cost with quick-service dining, we saved $528.99 and my sister and BIL saved $352.66! Since we saved more than $400, I really don't get how they worked out the numbers in the promotion...

I am leaning towards switching us to POP from AOA as well. I am bummed because I was super excited for the Cars Suite, but if we switch to POP we will save ~$1500. If we stick with the Cars suite, it will cost about $400 more to add the regular dining plan. I jut keep thinking that as soon as I switch, FD will be announced and we won't be able to switch back. Grrrrr.

Since I am not going until October 2013, I hope that there will be some form of discounts then. I am glad to hear you all having such nice savings.

Here's what I posted in another thread:
Wow - that's awesome but I'm jealous. I've worked the numbers over and over and keep getting at least $2000 more to go from POFQ to AKL (or any other Deluxe). Granted we have 4 people in our party, but still...even with our RO Pin# for 35% off, it doesn't come close to our FD PIN. My kids would have been thrilled to stay at AKL, so I was really tryiny. But, I guess I should just shut up and be happy I got a pin at all!!

Seriously!!

I ended up switching us to a split stay with 2 nights at AOA in the Cars Suite with the room only discount and then 5 nights at POP with PSD deal. We're saving money, we're getting dining, and we still get to stay in the Cars Suite, so it's all good. I am bummed there is no FD, not gonna lie. We were perfectly fine with spending what we were going to spend to stay at AOA, but when we had to pay more to get the dining with the PSD deal, that's when I decided it wasn't worth it.

Is the P/S/D deal going to be instead of free dining this year? I am planning for 2/26-3/4 and was going to be in AoA but am now debating b/c I was holding out for free dining but would rather do another deal if that is my only option.
