Free dining is the reason we have never purchased DVC and probably never will. We have a large family and the minimum buy in for us is about $28,000 - we haven't spent they much in 7 years of free dining trips.

I realize early Oct isn't much better, but it makes me feel better for some reason. Thanks in advance to all for your info!
They have had a general public free dining offer for select October dates for the last 5 years - they usually release the October - December free dining dates in July.

You won't see any kind of discount on those Little Mermaid rooms.

So is the rumor that the Free Dining for Moderates will only be the quick service plan? I sure hope not! I am hoping to stay at POR with free regular dining the week of Labor Day.

No, that's not correct. They only had free dining on those rooms with a pin code, not for the general public and even with the pin code it was very limited.

Actually, the fall bounceback did include the full dining for moderates.

We got that same bounce back in December and it was Quick Service for values and regular/basic DDP for moderates and deluxes.

That's what's been offered to UK visitors multiple times in the past and it never has and still has no baring on free dining promos for US residents.

A lot of Disney blogs and sites are leaning towards April 25, a few are saying May 16. I think both of those dates are pretty credible predictions - definitely no later than May 16.

I called April 25th for Disney visa holders since they almost always release those on Thursdays. That would leave the 29th for public release. I haven't heard the May 16th date but that too is a Thursday which would indicate the same deal as above with public offering the following Monday.
