Thanks again! No TA....just me so its a little overwhelming at times!
I did not have a TA for our first trip and that was before FD even existed, so I can't imagine how crazy this all is for you. Don't be afraid to ask ?????'s

We are planning on going September 14-22 hopefully getting FD in a LM room.
If that does not work out we will take a day off our ressie and go Sept 14-21 and probably stay at POR.
All my dining ressies are set

Good to hear. Those events totally came out of the blue! On to smoother sailing.

Do you have any thoughts on free dining for the end of October? Not trying to get you to commit...just actually trying to work out options. I know I can always upgrade to AP and get a TIW card so that'll give me some discounts. I just like to have all numbers worked out to see what is best Anyway, we are going 10/29-11/10...making ADR's on Thursday!!!!!

It doesn't look good. Disney is pulling back on their free dining. While we always said September would be offered, the other months were definitely being pulled back from other years.

Remember, they offered the other months when the economy tanked...but the September offer was around long before the economy turned south, so it wasn't ever a part of those discounts. But as you can see, even the September dates have shrunk, so October may see room discounts similar to what's offered now, but I think that's all we should expect.

Disney411 can chime in too, but I expect she will have similar thoughts.

The October - December free dining discounts are not usually released until July, sometimes August. If I had to make a prediction for October this year, I would say FD dates would be October 1-6 and October 19-31, give or take a day. So, come on summer :-)

No kidding...that was crazy.

There are lots of folks out there that have all kinds of information, even a girl in another thread back on the 19th that nailed the dates but didn't get any attention at all. Credit where it's due...

Totally not ready to rule out October - December FD yet :-) I could be totally wrong, but I think they will still have some slow weeks they will want to cover with FD.

We all need to post here on the day it begins, so we can share how long we had to wait on the phone, and what (if any) resorts/room types are sold out, what we booked, what dates, etc...

We can get lots of good information while sitting on hold so we can adjust our plans if we need to.

Plus, it's fun!!!

Ummm....insane! I never posted over there....just was nosey! LOL But I felt like what started the tension was the post asking people not to discuss dining because it made the thread messy. This is a discussion forum...people (for the most part) are very friendly and chatty and informative and helpful. So, that all very often leads to branching out. Anyway, that comment had nothing to do with me, but I thought it was uncalled for. I then came back later I the afternoon and whoa!!!!! It went nuts! I think someone overreacted! LOL slightly!
