The last couple of days of September could go either way. If you miss out on the late summer offer, don't panic. The fall offers usually pick up right where the late summer offers end. Good luck!

I am with you on the OCD thing... take a look at my name!
Definitely keep an eye on these boards though - information will likely come out here first.

Oooooh .... I got so excited when I got my mail today and there was one of those familiar post cards inside!!!! But - no pin code it was basically an add for a stay and play package in a 2 week September time frame, but when I priced it out it was the same as rack rate. Oh well .... I still have everything crossed!

Normally we go either way but fortunately we either had a good room only discount PIN or FD PIN or GP Code and now this yr I have called in numerous times and NOTHING..

This yr we also need to stay within a certain amount, I booked trip banking on some type of discount. While I don't think Disney owes us either we were going up to 3 times a yr until I got laid off in Aug..

Getting very very nervous when I read all the RUMORS about NO FD OR the FD that the UK is getting.. They are supposedly getting NO FD at values and Mods and Deluxe are only getting QSDP.. Im now a TA and we haven't heard a thing on FD and I spoke to a CM today who said that Disney has really really cut back on their discounts.. They believe that opening the new Fantasyland will bring in the guests w/o needing discounts.. I pray this is NOT the truth Ill be devastated if we have to cancel our trip!

CM says possibly no free dining

I just posted on another post...but I called Disney to see if i had a pin & I asked the CM if she has heard anything about free dining coming out this year and she said and I quote:
"We've been hearing that it will not be offered this year". Not sure if she is accurate, but thought I'd pass it along. I hope she is mistaken.

A friend of my wifes son who is in management said the same thing! I would think we should give it to the end of April !

Okay. So possible no dining. But they should still offer some sort of room discount for one of their slowest times of the year????

Confusion

Okay, what's going on? Cast members are hinting that it will happen, cast members are hinting that it won't happen, I mean, it seems that no one really has any idea about the fate of FD.

I agree! I talked to a CM yesterday and she said for me to not lose hope in FD. That it had not been offered this year yet and to look for something to come out in June! But then I read where others have said that it will not happen.

In years past free ddp came out either end of march -beginning of April. (I believe)Surprised they would wait as long as June to release a sept promo.

I thought when Disney first started doing the free ddp it was to attract more people during their slowest month and to get people to want to buy ddp when they travel at other times (since it was new). I wonder how busy sept will be if they don't offer the free ddp.

We're hoping to go the last week of August as we have done the last couple of years. Just praying that Disney doesn't eliminate the offer (hopefully they know that FD is what makes the trip affordable for many families).

You're right. It's always been march April. If I don't hear anything by the end of April. I'm going to call and talk to a CM. see If they know anything for sure by then.

Danny25 said he would let us know the next deal 20 days before it comes out. Phone CMs are the least reliable when it comes to future discounts. Often times when we get deal info here and then call them the day it goes live, they have no idea that the deal even exists! You can call with the same question 10 times and get 3 or more different answers. Many of the call centers are not even located in the state of Florida. Someone once asked to add a lake view request at POP and the CM told them there was no lake there.

If it gets to that point, please let us know what you find out!
