Whether it saves you money will really depend on how you plan on eating. The best way is to head over to allears.net, check out the menus, and do a rough estimate of what it will cost you to pay OOP (at the places you plan on going) versus what it would cost you to get the DDP.

Here is a link with historical dates/offers for the past couple of years. http://www.mousesavers.com/historica...ts/#codetrends

I didn't see FD for the general public this year, but there was a room discount. Looks like in 2011 the last few days of May had a FD offer. It doesn't look like FD was out in 2010 for May either. Other discounts were available in May for all years.

This year is kind of iffy on FD in general.

I'd really love to join this post. We went this past September and got FD and were hoping for FD around November for 2013, although our dates are flexible, so anytime in the fall really would be fine. This past trip was our dd's first and she loved it. We are planning a surprise birthday trip and since her birthday is on November 5th, we'd like to head down there for the occasion. I'm keeping my fingers X

Seeing the discounts thus far for 2013 makes me think that the only chance for free dining is going to be the original time period of late August through late September, but who knows. Still hoping for November, but hope is dwindling.

For 2013 there is NO free dining per se. They are packging the discount differently. For us we took advantge of stay/play/dine for 7 nights at CSR. With that we saved $600 which means our dining plan ended up costing around $150 which is far less than OOP. Its too bad they do it in this way now but I imagine Disney's bottom line makes it worth it.

What are you talking about?

FD is being offered via pin codes and bounceback offers for 2013. We have no way of knowing whether Disney will offer it to the GP during the year of 2013, but I've certainly been under the assumption that S/P/D will be the new GP dining discount. Stating there is NO free dining for the year is a) incorrect and b) not something we will know until the year is up.

I was answering a question in regards to FD, but even stated that it is questionable as to whether it will be released for the upcoming year.
