you guys will probably think i'm crazybut I had figured out how much it would cost to stay a month -- first you buy an annual pass - we have a family member with a DVC so we can get 100 off - so for 400 a person we can get an AP nd go all year...then we wait for free dining - we book it on line and change the tickets to one day -- (you still get free dining for the whole stay)....you bookpop century - which I love -- and it would cost you 3,400
for 2 or 3,600 for 4 people plus 400 perso for annual pass.....justa wonderul day dream

Free dining requires a two day ticket.

Also, I think that fd is limited to a 14 day stay so you would have to book it twice. So you would need 2 two day park tickets.

Its either Aug 16th or 23rd , My guess is it starts on the 16th. A solid guess.

So do the bouncebacks typically coincide with free dining promo dates they offer ?

Not really. Those staying on property during late summerthrough late fall often get offered a bounceback for free dining for the following year's mid August to mid to late Sept, but the public offer typically starts later in August and first goes through Sept/first few days of October. Then the GP offer is usually extended to include select dates in October, November and December. There are lots of blackout dates for the Oct-Dec period.

The room only bounceback (offered near the end of the year throughout the next year's early summer) typically covers most of the year, but there are tons of blackouts. Public offers come out for shorter periods at a time, and the blackout dates are not always the same as the blackout dates of the bounceback. Bouncebacks also typically have a higher % off than the GP deals.

Bouncebacks are basically just their own type of deals, and don't really indicate what the GP will be given.

Ok...wow. That is a whole other beast! Fingers crossed that FD is extended to 10/2 or later for our family. Thanks for all your tips!

Not really, it all depends on the year.


August 21 – October 4, 2005
August 13 – September 30, 2006
August 26 – September 22, 2007
August 30 – September 27, 2008
August 16 – October 3, 2009
August 15 – October 2, 2010
August 28 - September 24, 2011

So, as you can see, its random, sort of. Not always late Aug, but a mix of late and mid.
