Thanks Danny! As a Canadian I often wondered if we'd be excluded from US offers. It's great to hear it's open to the entire world!

I'm so very excited. Convinced DH that we can afford to go during free dining. Planning on Sept 14-21. DS's 3rd birthday is the 16th and DD's 14th birthday on the 24th. I'd love to stay for both birthdays, but I think the school would be a bit upset. Planning on trying to get a LM room at AOA. Yay, yay, yay!

I was looking at the dates of the free dining and the food and wine festival. Looks like food and wine starts on Sept 27, but last day for free dining is Sept 25. I seem to remember and please correct me if I'm wrong, if I book my trip to check in on Sept 25, I can still take advantage of the free dining and still get to enjoy the f&w festival.

Help!

You are absolutely correct! As long as you are checked in before the FD offer expires, you'll be fine. Hubby & I use our snack credits for dining around the world when we visit.

Thank you! I feel better now. All I have to do now is firm up the dates with dh and my mom (she wants to come, just has to see if the dates work with her and she has enough vacation days).

Yes, that is correct, as long as you check in by the last day of a FD promo you can have the discount applied to your entire stay, up to 14 nights.

Free Disney Dining in September

I have been reading elsewhere that this "free dining" promotion is NOT for US citizens but is for South America and Europe residents. I also read that the US citizen "free dining" offer could certainly have different dates, like including the end of August. What are your thoughts concerning this?

The author of this thread has been correct with every deal he has posted for two+ years. This will be the US offer. You can take him at his word. Do you have a link to where you are reading these statements? This question came up earlier in this thread, and Danny confirmed that it is absolutely the US offer.

There are no separate discounts, free dining or otherwise, for South America. The UK WDW travel company had their own website and UK free dining offers and discounts have absolutely no baring on and usually have completely different dates than US discount offers.

The FD promo that will open for booking to the general public on May 9, will include the dates of September 2-25 and will certainly include US residents.

One of the sites is the "yourfirstvisit.net" website. They confirmed that the offer was only for non-us citizens. Here is the article:

NEWS ON FREE DINING AT WALT DISNEY WORLD IN 2013…SORTA

One of my crack sources–the mysterious J–just emailed me to let me know that free dining for the fall of 2013 will be out shortly for South American and European visitors.

The booking window will open May 9, and the offer will cover arrival dates of September 2 through September 25.

At the values, the offer is the quick service dining plan for free, and at the moderates and deluxes, the offer is the regular dining plan for free.

I refuse to read too much into the arrival dates right now, so my takeaway is that since this offer will soon be out for much of the rest of the world, we’ll see an August/September free dining deal out for US residents visitors in May as well.

While that site is a good read, I don't put much stock in their predictions, especially because they are calling the upcoming offer the "fall offer" when it is actually the "late summer" offer.

I believe the UK FD promos have already been released for 2013. There has NEVER been an exclusive free dining offer or dates for South America through the Walt Disney World Travel Company. A separate offer for South America would be strange, they can simply book through the US WDW site and book whatever the current FD promo is, same for Canadians. Why would they need a separate discount offer extended to South America? I don't think that makes sense.

They will possibly release some room only discounts for mid to late August in June.
