If you are staying at a value and want to upgrade to the DP make sure to ask if you have a free upgrade attached to your name before you pay. Worked for me a couple of years ago!

It was awesome! Thanks to Dis I learned to always ask the CM if I have a discount/upgrade. We had 7 people going, it saved us a lot of money.

And when are typical "October black-out days"?

Here's a bit of history to give you an idea...as you can see, it varies a bit but remember this year they are taking their sweet time. While I don't see free dining in the cards like they have here, I could see some room discounts. I really think free dining is being pulled back to September like it used to be.

2010
10/2 - 12/21 - Free dining - Announced on 8/16
10/3 - 12/31 - Room only discount - Announced on 8/16

2011
10/2 - 12/17 - Free dining - Announced on 8/3
10/30 - 12/23 - 15%-30% Room discounts - Announced 10/5

2012
9/30 - 12/13 - Free dining - Announced on 7/12
9/30 - 12/22 - 5%-30% Room discounts - Announced 8/27

Letīs clarify because lots of UK friends are asking this: UK have specials offers only for that country (and some european countries), but any at UK can book the US offer at USA Disneyworld.com so You can choose to book the offer that are available at the UK page or at the US page, that itīs open to book by anybody in the world

In the past when I booked dining I've booked the last day of the dining offer as my first day of my vacation and the dining extended to my whole trip. I've also booked the first day of the dining offer as my last day of vacation and was able to get the free dining for my whole trip. I was told as long as you book any part of your trip during the free dining promo that you get free dining for the whole trip. Did I explain that right? Will that work again for this year?

Correct, you must check in on a day the promo is available. Some folks get that confused. If you check in the day before it begins, then you aren't eligible for the promo.

Your check in day is the only day that needs to be covered. You cannot have Sept 2 be your last day of vacation and get free dining. It doesn't work that way, and to my knowledge, it never has.

The first half of your post is correct, if you check in on the date the FD ends you will get it for your entire stay still that follows. But the second scenario of using the first day of dining as your last day of vacation and have it applied prior to when it starts that isn't an option, and as other posters have said to my knowledge also it never has been. But you would absolutely be ok with using the last day of FD for your entire stay following.

Definately May 6th?

DH, DM and I are taking my DD for her 4th birthday this year Sept 12-20. She is soooo excited (and so am I). She asks me everyday "Mommy are we going to Disneyworld today?" It is really hard to explain to a 3 yr old the concept of 4 months time, but I will be so happy when I finally get to answer her "Yes, we are!"

Any idea when we will know if the fd for Disney visa holders will definately be May 6th or not?

Also, thank you all so much for the posts on the fd offer . I had been anxiously waiting to find out if they were going to offer it again this year for Sept, since it will save us ~$1400. YAY!!!
