He meets all other requirements (I.e. he's checking in the 21st, staying at POR for 7 nights, etc)!

My stay, on the other hand was not what I was hoping for! I was originally planned to arrive the 26th, have everything booked including flights. But, we have decided to go ahead and change our dates and arrive on the 25th. Even with fees to change, it would still be cheaper than buying the regular dining package, which is what I was planning on! Still saving me $300 and I get an extra stay at disney! So I'm content!!
Your friend would not be eligible. You must be booked under a Magic Your Way package that included room, tickets and dining to apply the FD discount to your reservation. There is a 2 day base ticket requirement with that MYW FD package.

Ok, thanks. I wasn't sure if it was the same thing or not.

You will be surprised how long kids can go at Disney! The FD plan is probably best! Take the free QS plan and stay at a value, if you are on a budget. Or, a value and upgrade to regular dining for sit down dinners.. I personally love regular dining, but I do know it does not fit into every family type. But, whatever you choose.. Enjoy!!

Just so you know, I've been taking advantage of the free dining promo since 2005 yearly (two years off for cruising, etc) with my kids from age 3, 3 year old is now 11, dd8, oldest 20 so I know FD.. Even though I have only done regular Disney Dining. I know there are various QS locations in the park, and outside of the parks that will suite your families needs and tastes..Have a look see on allearsnet.com for Disney menu's. If you would like any more tips, or info just send a private message.. We are going in Sept 24- Oct 1st 7 nights staying at POR with FD

I forgot to add one time when i tried to book through expedia, they did not allow all of the components for tickets selections. So, I've always booked directly through Disney..
There is no FD for August.

If the dates posted on the Resorts board by a person who has been correct about free dining dates every year for the past few years are correct once again, then there will be no free dining in August. the given check-in dates for the promotion were September 2 - 25.

For absolute confirmation you will probably have to wait at least another week.

Yup those are the dates. Sorry guys but it looks like there are a couple of large conventions the last week of August which could have impacted discounts. Regardless, free dining doesn't start til the 2nd.

So my TA (also my SIL) called to modify my reservation today. I was booked in AoA LM room arriving September 27th, so I changed it to arrive the 25th for FD in case the LM rooms will indeed be included as said (and I get one before they all go... I changed now in case they sell out!). Of course the CM said LM rooms are never included, so won't be this year, blah blah. I am sticking with LM no matter what, but FD would be a sweet sweet bonus! I hope to prove the CM and my SIL wrong!

There is not going to be a public free dining offer for August. People were offered a FD bounceback last fall for August 2013. Between the conventions and the bookings from the bounceback offer, they must feel that their bookings are high enough without offering free.dining to the public.

Yes, and you will be required to put down a minimum $200 deposit.
