I wish I could get a pin! We're booked with S/P/D but would love to have true Free Dining as a pin as it would save us some more $400-500!

Does anyone know something I could do to try and receive one in my e-mail?

No pin for us either; and for anyone who booked the S/P/D package before they adjusted their prices, be wary of making any changes. I just dropped my number of tickets from 4 days to 1, and they repriced my whole package. Still hoping for that free dining pin...

There have been different s/p/d offers over the years. The usual deal is that kids stay, play and dine for free, but this current offer is that kids AND adults stay, play and dine at children's prices. So adults pay the kid pricing for their park tickets and their included dining plan (based on the level of resort they choose).

That's great!


Sigh. Not so great for us, no kids.

remember if your pkg is already discounted you cant apply a second discount. its one or the other. and FD is used to fill resorts so your resort or room type may not be available even if FD comes out. FD dining isnt for everywhere only where they need to fill rooms.


second part.....register at disney website, save vacation offers, if the little question for cm pops up....ask some questions. pins are totally random but they have to have your email or home address to send it to ones who get them. ive never gotten one for the yr if we already have a res booked. ive heard of people getting them though even if they have a booking for that current yr.

Actually, the tickets are not at children's prices, I think it's only the dining plan that is. At least that's the way it appeared when I dropped my park tickets from 4 days to 1.

You don't have to have kids to get it. We are 2 adults and got this package.

Even better, we're a group of 3 adults and 1 teen and got a great discount on our package. We reduced 3 nights (14 to 11) and kept same tickets (8-day MYW with PH and WPF&M) and added QSDP for only $7 more!

Knowing that prices are now changing with any change to a reservation I won't change ours for sure! Unless a pin comes along of course!

Yes, don't make my mistake!! Luckily, it was "only" a $63 mistake this time. C'mon free dining!!

When it first launched,all tickets were at kid pricing. There was some sort of glitch with the package that Disney corrected on Oct. 12, but not sure if it was a ticketing issue. For those that booked prior to the 12th, Disney has honored the prices, but lots of people have reported that booking the same package today would cost significantly more.

Yea I heard this and was bummed too. I did some digging and it turned out that a lot of guests have been left stranded on the ride and more often than not the ride has been closed down. Still sucks though.

Thanks! I'm registered (my package booking was through the official website then adding S/P/D through the phone) and have some offers saved and some ADRs made.

Well, maybe I'll get a pin in the future, but being from Brazil it is not easy to go to WDW very often, last time was 5 years ago in 2007 and the one before that in 2000! A pin could be something that would make this cycle faster!
