We've been getting 2 connecting values for a long time for our family and we now only travel during free dining weeks and we always upgrade to the regular dining plan. Even paying $500 or so to upgrade is totally worth it. We usually do 8 or 9 nights and everyone has their favorite restaurants and character meals each trip, and that's about $2000+ worth of food, so totally worth the upgrade for us :-)

That's the same days our family is going. We are going to resort/parks prior to Fantasy 7 night western carribean cruise. We are currently booked at CR GW but depending on if/what promo offered we may change to WL (my kids favorite) or try a moderate like POR RR. We will see what May 9th brings...

We are going Sept 22 thru 28. Already booked at POFQ but will change resorts if need to for FD. So excited! We've done QSDP but never DDP. Made my ADR's right at 180 and got everything we wanted at times we wanted! 1900 PF Breakfast (DD5 is a HUGE Alice fan), CRT Dinner, Crystal palace before park opens, Mama Melrose Fantasmic Pkg lunch, Coral Reef dinner. Even though I know CRT is not a good deal on the dining plan, we could never afford it otherwise. Thanks for the heads up on Free dining! We are disney visa holders (we have the regular card and the premier card actually) and my TA is on alert to get FD added asap! Hopefully it will all work out!!

I'm in! Even though I am not going til November, I love seeing how much people save. Can I ask a favor and if the FD gets extended in July or August, can you post it here also, if you start a new thread? I try to keep up with all the new threads, but sometimes work and life gets in the way. If it is posted here, I will get notification in my email.

This is my first attempt at this as I'm new to this site but not new to Disney!!!

My question for anyone is....

I booked today at AoA for Sept 21-27 in the LM room with tickets and regular dining. I am a Disney Visa Cardholder. Will I be able to keep me reservation here when FD is announced or rebook somewhere else? We usually stay at the PORFQ but simply wanted to save some money in a Value (since we don't stay in room very much.)

And if room discounts come along for that time will we have to choose whether or not to use that or FD?? Very confused!!

Thanks for any clarification.

We are going 14-21. We currently have a ressie for a 2 bdrm villa at BLT. But seriously considering changing to 2 connecting rooms at WL or BC to take advantage of FD.

You have some good choices. CRT isn't a bad deal though. You get an appetizer and a photo package. We also got a plastic sword for the boys and magic wand for the girls, along with a wishing star. All in all it was a great time. Enjoy it.

And thanks again by the way.

After the public offer drops, it usually shows up online in a few hours after the phones open. For the visa offer though, it's by phone only.

You will call and ask them to add the FD discount to your existing reservation, you will not cancel or rebook. Those LM standard rooms have been blacked out for almost every discount in the past, so if they actually are available for booking with this FD promo, I will be shocked. Always have a back up room category and/or resort. Even if you change dates or resort or room categories you do NOT have to rebook and your reservation number stays the same.

Hi, Black I was lurking in the other thread but I decided to post here. We will be going September 7-15 probably CSR or Riverside we'll see. Really happy FD is coming.

Listen to the 411...she is wise!!!

In all seriousness, even now those LM rooms are completely booked for many nights in September. So either way, they are few and far between.
