I would look for a time after 8-14 for any free dining deals.

I base this on a pincode offer I received that ends on 8-14. Usually when one deal ends another one will be begin.

Free dining for the public started in the fall originally because there was a lot of bad PR going on about tornadoes at that time of the year in the Florida area. Disney was offsetting those possibilities by offering the free dining deal. Then, they expanded it for the winter months because the economy showed less traveling and so forth.

This year seems to show there is a trend to get away from free dining. If there is free dining dates this year it may be very limited on dates. If resort capacity is very poor they will bring it back.

In the past they have downgraded the free dining to not include appetizers and gratuities for the regular dining plan. As time marched on there were more downgrades and now it appears they want to stop this promotion.

I believe there is only one factor that will bring free dining back and that's attendance at the resorts.
