Not only that, but guests must book a specific type of reservation - a room/tickets package for at least 3 nights with at least 2 day park tickets. Free dining isn't available on a room-only reservation.

The only way to know for sure when there will be free dining is when Disney announces it.

We booked for September 17-24th, and really hoping for free dining. We upgraded from POP to CBR. If it is free dining as it has been offered the past few years it made sense to be at a moderate. It costs us only pennies more that the value upgraded from CS.
I hate not knowing, I plan out as many of you do for my meals. If they don't include my dates it will be a pain to change it!
We have all fingers and toes crossed here for Free Dining in September!!

This was pulled from ASMu.

And it looks like FD is over for the end of the month, meaning there's no possible way those doing a BB for the marathon or for F&W's opening will be able to get FD. It doesn't surprise me as it's the end of August, middle of Sept that's slow. Because of the marathon and the start of F&W and the holiday weekend, the last week of Sept/first week of Oct is much busier. They don't need the FD to pull folks in. And historically speaking, FD was over by the time the end of Sept rolled around. Since F&W is early this year, all the dates on this make perfect sense.

THAT SAID, there was a FD bounceback for January-March last fall, but the promotion released to the general public for that time period were room discounts and Stay, Play, Dine. It's entirely possible that this is just a BB offer. It's in everybody's favor that Sept was the original free dining month, before it was widely expanded, but considering FD is going to be severely limited, if not eliminated, for at least the next few years... It's by no means a promise. If it were going to happen, I'd say the dates above would be a good barometer.

I saw that bounce back offer as well. Does anyone know how close the bounce back offers have historically been to the free dining offers announced throughout the year?

Generally the same, more or less.

Given the dates on the card, I'd say it'd probably be 8/18-9/13, MAYBE the 20th, or so. I would say that the extended period for the "select Deluxes" would be the deluxe BB perk, which has always traditionally been more generous. I'd say that the chances of the last day being within 7 or even 14 days of the start of F&W are lower.

Again, all guesses.

Like I said, the dates given are good windows, and the 13th makes sense since it means that there would be no general admission guests doing FD during F&W.

I'm checking in August 14 and am hoping for Free Dining too. I have applied a PIN so far and I think I got 25% off my mod.

Can someone tell me what the Stay/Play/Dine deal is?

We got the bounceback during our stay last Sept., for next Sept. and it's free dining. It's interesting that the flyer that the pp. posted seems to exclude value's though. We booked ASMo free dining for this Sept. via the bounceback from last Sept.

With this "Stay, Play and Dine" deal as well as the "bounceback" offer that is now out there, is confidence still high that their will be free dinning in September? I know at this point no one knows for sure but it seems to me that with these multiple offers, the chance is not good...

Thoughts?

With September most likely having free dining, how hard will CRT for breakfast and BOG/Ohana during 6pm -7:30pm diner?

Will I need to be online at 6am of our 180+ window?

Usually I don't need to do this, but also I don't usually go during free dining.
