Anyhow, my question is this, if I book through AAA, will I have access to my reservation on the Disney site? Do I have to pay AAA directly, or can I pay online through the Disney site? Will I be able to make my own ADRs?
Booking through AAA you make your payments and all changes to your package through them. You can make your own ADRs. To link them to your reservation you'll need your reservation number while making them online although I've made ADRs with just a contact phone number and no reservation number over the phone.

Do you have a link to historical information on this? All of the one I've seen have had FD in October before Columbus Day in precious years.

Last year I was tracking the FD offer and it was available starting Oct. 19, 2012 (a Friday) through the end of the month and into Nov. I'm banking on some kind of Fall offer hopefully starting 10/18 this year. Thinking FD is unlikely though...

The travel agency should be able to give you the reservation #. You can view the reservation on the disney site, do online check in, and make ADRs using it. Payments and changes go through the agent.

Columbus Day was the 8th and the deal didn't start until the 19th. Columbus is the 14th this year so do you think they would have one the 18th? Last year it wasn't the same week at all it was blacked out that week.

I don't know if Columbus Day is really the driving factor for blackouts. I think it has more to do with the fact that many schools have their Fall breaks the first and second full weeks in October.

We're one that has fall break Columbus week, this is the first year our school system has done a whole week for fall break. I'm hoping for a RO discount though, it works out better for us.

We're in Oct 15-22

Hi everyone
We just did something completely backwards....

We found flights out of our state (Delaware) on Frontier airlines for 450.00 total for all 4 of us non stop round trip..... SO WE BOOKED THEM.

Now we just have to figure out where we are staying and we are praying for FREE DINING. Though everything I am reading says there won't be free dining.

Anyone have any intel on whether its gonna happen this year? So excited and I can hardly contain myself....

WOW great deal on flights! I did the same thing, lol - I have my airline tix but nothing else. There's a thread for a free dining watch, probably the best place to watch for insight - http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2958479
