Nope, there has only been one time in the past that there was not a Disney Visa FD offer before the general public release. Every other FD offer has gone out for DV holders at least 3 days before the general public.

If I'm already booked for those dates in september, how do I make the promo apply to me? Do I have to cancel and re-order?

Do you have to call Disney Reservations at 7am the day the promotion comes out, or is it available online as well? When is Free Dining available to book online versus calling?

So if I was to check in on Sept 25 would I get free dining for my whole vacation, even though it ends then?

You can do either in fact it's probably quicker online. It will both start at 7 am.

It's funny how the conversations and reactions and questions are almost the same each year.

And, Black, wasn't 2007 supposed to be the last year of free dining?!? Lol!
Same here I had some clients who were about to cancel their trips so I contacted them & asked them to hold on a few more weeks & they would be pleased then it never stopped from there! Poor DH had to eat sandwich for supper! Lol

There won't be a change fee as long as you do it before your 45 days of arrival day 44 you will be charged.

3. If it happens to not come out, or if we have to cancel for whatever reason, do you lose your deposit or any money you have paid so far?
Booking now doesn't guarantee you the discount when it comes out they a lot so many rooms at each included resort per discount so I would wait to book. Lets say you booked a CL room at Poly & they sold out of rooms they a lot at Poly under that discount you would either need to choose an available room category or change your resort so it's really a better idea NOT to rush out & book
