Is there any chance the days are a little off? Im on a Disney Cruise until the 26th and checking in on the 26th of Sept and staying for 3 nights. Are there any options for missing it by a day?

I am confused...how could the room not be available when you call to add free dining if you already have it booked? Maybe your particular room preference is excluded? I thought if u already have ressie, you just call and they reduce your total pkg cost.

I think there is a good chance for September 28 being included later, buy I'm not a gambler either, take the guaranteed dates :-)

That's not how it works. They only set aside a certain percentage of rooms for each deal. Not everyone at the resort will get free dining. That is why Visa holders get a head start. Once the rooms for the discount are claimed, that's it. It is best to call first thing in the morning to get in on any offered deal. Most resorts will have a lot of rooms, but AoA standard rooms and rooms at POFQ are pretty limited because there are not a lot of them even without a discount.

I am a terrible gambler too. Knowing FD is a sure thing, I would do it, especially if you have kids or plan to stay at a value or moderate. Two adults at a deluxe though? Might be worth waiting out. Traditionally, there has been a discount in fall but who knows this year. Wish we could move our trip, I would do it in a second!

Yes, simply call Disney reservations and have them modify your existing reservation and they will credit you the difference. You do NOT have to cancel. Some resorts and room categories will sell out of free dining discounts before others, so it's always good to have a back up room category or resort. But usually if you call the first day, it shouldn't even be an issue.

I seriously doubt these dates are off. A room only discount could be released at a later date.

Remember too that they don't release them all for Visa holders, so if something is sold out, many times it will be available for the public release.

Under normal circumstances, it's not a problem. If you have a moderate resort booked, I'd say you're fine. It's the hot items like LM rooms that are tough. This is why I don't book until promo date, then I just tell them the resort and they can find anything available...as opposed to having a river view room booked already that may not be available when I call. Plus, if the first resort I ask for is sold out (never had it happen), there are plenty more.

I plan on going with a moderate, so I don't see any trouble getting something.

Thank you thank you
Sounds like I will be changing it to FD then as both kids are under 10 with 2 adults its a better savings.

Yay so excited!!!

BTW, slightly off-topic, but did I miss any discounts for the May time-period? We have gone the first few weeks of May previously and there were either roo-only or FD discounts, but I have not seen anything prior to June.

Each resort is only allotted so many FD rooms under each promo. For example, Pop Century is allocated 100 FD standard rooms, if they sell all 100 of those FD standard rooms before you call, you would not be able to apply the FD code to your existing reservation, even if your existing reservation is at Pop Century in a standard room. You could then ask of they have availability at a preferred room at Pop or ask if they have availability at All Star Movies with a standard room. This really isn't an issue if you call within the first few days of a FD promo and they will credit you the difference, but you at not guaranteed a FD discount because you have an existing reservation.
