Yay! We're coming down for Halloween and FD would be a huge help.

Do Disney Visa holders get first dibs on Free Dining?

Yes, usually Disney Visa cardholders get first dibs on a Thursday. The deal is released for the general public several days later, usually a Tuesday.

The October - December free dining dates are not typically released until July, sometimes early August. The next round of free dining discounts will be for late summer/early fall and will only encompass dates in late August through late September.

Typically, general public free dining codes will be released 3 days, occasionally 4 days, after the Disney Visa free dining offer.

Correction: looks like for the past few years the general public offer came out on a Monday, not a Tuesday.

One of the years, either '07 or '09, It came out on Monday for Dvisa, and Thurs. for GP. I can remember getting up early the day after Easter to call, and having to call three days later for my 4th room.

What's the best strategery for this - am I better off reserving my room now before any deal is announced and then go back and call and have them adjust the reservation or am I better off waiting and booking at once under any potential new promo - or does it simply not matter either way except for an extra call one way vs. the other.

You would have to already be booked under a Magic Your Way package to call and add the free dining discount to your existing reservation, when the codes are released. If you are booked under a room only reservation, you would have to completely cancel that reservation and rebook under the package - and they won't transfer the money from the room only to the package, so it doesn't really help to do that.

If you know your dates and know you are going to Disney, discount or not, then go ahead and book your package. If you are only going if a discount is released, I would wait. I would recommend making your Advance Dining Reservation either way - you can always cancel them if a discount is not released.

Does "fall" typically cover early December?
