There is still a chance for a room discount, but free dining is pretty much off the table at this point.

Hasn't Disney always called the last weeks of August their "Fall Promotion?" I spoke with a CM and they told me that their "Summer Season" ends the middle of August when the south goes back to school. What are your thoughts?

Still looking into it, but looks like some room only discounts should be in the cards starting August 15. That would bridge the gap of no discounts between the summer offer and free dining.

The Aug/Sept deals are considered late summer. Disney goes by the actual calendar when referencing discount periods. Their actual room rate seasons are referred to differently. The official first day of Fall is Sept 22. Disney's "fall" offer is for October-Dec.

Actually, I just looked at this website and saw that they call it there "Value 1 Season"...August 18-September 26th. Any thoughts as to why they would exclude August this year and have never done that before?! I am so bummed. We have gone to Disney the last week in August almost every year for the past few years and have always gotten the "Free Dining Plan" offer. We are scheduled again this year for August 25th arrival and will miss it if this holds true!

No concrete answer, but it is believed that the number of conventions in late August combined with the bookings from the bounceback offer has given them high enough occupancy that FD was not needed to fill the rooms this year. Even though you will miss out on this deal, there is still a chance for a room deal, and maybe the crowd levels will go down a bit if people who are flexible with their dates will move them. Good luck!

They didn't want a bunch of conference attendees all eating for free. Coronado is nearly sold out for the Mustang convention and another convention is going on at the same time over at wide world of sports.

I'll throw out what I'm seeing at the moment.

Room only discount for travel dates between August 15 and September 28 with some exclusions. Available for booking possibly on May 9. I can't tell if this covers US residents but I think that may be the case.

Perhaps Danny will be able to fill in that gap soon, unless I can dig up more.

So call this tentative and possible for now.

Thanks for your continuing updates!! Fingers crossed that we'll be able to apply this room only discount to magic your way packages.

Code needed for Disney Rewards Visa cardholders?

I have a Disney Rewards Visa card. Do I need a code to be able to call for the FDP during the DRV advance offer?
Also, do you know if the royal rooms at POR are included in the FDP offer?
Thank you for all your help and info. For 3 adults & 1 child, your FD info will save us close to $1500.

Highly possible, they have released free dining and room only discounts at the same time in the past. It's been a couple of years since they released FD and room only on the same day, but it has happened :-)
