I will admit I haven't read all of this thread, I just found it. Any thoughts on December (early December - not near Christmas)?

Going by previous years FD cut off date, last Sat. Of Sept which would be 9/28 this year of course it seems this is a year of surprises as far as discounts go.

If it follows the bounceback, mods end on sept 18 and deluxe end on sept 26.

We are going in November and my *guess* is only the traditional original free dining dates are going to be offered late Aug-Sept. I think something will come out for our dates, but not free dining. This is only based on what we have seen for the rest of this year. Discounts have drastically decreased.

Last year I booked my first day if free dining on Sept 28th as it was the cut off. Shortly after I booked they extended it into certain weeks in Oct, Nov and beginning of Dec and I almost switched, but didn't want to go through all the trouble.

Red face does free dining offer table service for mods?

We are hoping for free dining in Sept. we were wondering if the mods offer table service with free dining and if not can you upgrade? does anyone have any idea how much it would cost?

thank you!!!

In the past the mods and deluxe have offered table service dining, while the values offered quick service.

If they only offer quick service at your resort you can certainly upgrade. The cost would be $18.01 per person per day for adults, $2.84 for kids.

I believe that the rumor is free dining will end on September 24 this year, so as long as you check in by that date, you can have the FD discount applied to your entire trip, up to 14 nights, do you should be good.

If free dining is offered, it will fall on those dates. It should start around August 18 and go until sometime around the end of sept.

Will I be able to change my plan?

Hi everyone. I am new to this board and planning my first Disney trip so bear with me. BUT....we are booked for Aug. 18-23 with the dining plan. If the FD comes out for that time, will I be able to apply that to my package even though I have already paid? Thanks for your help!

You can if there's availability at your resort. However if too many people go ahead and book anyway thinking they can do this, Disney will see their resorts booking up and won't offer a deal at all. It creates a self fulfilled prophecy and does no good to book before an announcement since you'll still have to call early when they announce it because they could fill up at your resort anyway. Why not let Disney see that people aren't booking so they will offer something good.
