And, do you think I will at least get my second choice, family suite at AS Music, if I am Disney Visa holder?
I have no doubt that AOA will fill up very quickly. I think you'll be fine with any of the others as a backup. Last year they all initially sold except sports early on, then I called at around 9pm that night and was told I could have any of the values I wanted.

I think the conference attendees get a special package rate. Looked at the Mustang convention site, and they get a special deal at CSR, so I doubt they would be able to get a free dining discount, too. Not that it really matters, since it doesn't look like FD is happening for late August anyways

I am a Dis Visa holder.

If I want to pre-book my package before even the Dis Visa comes out, so that i can just call to add it, should I book package w/ dining and just add code later? Or book packate w/o dining and then w/ code add the dining?

Just call when the time comes. The isn't much advantage to having a reservation prior, since you still have to call and having a room beforehand doesn't lock you into free dining.

It doesn't matter, they will add the FD discount either way to the existing package reservation.

Chances of November FD?

I know you addressed October in an earlier post but what chances are you giving November, specifically the week before Thanksgiving? We have never stayed on site but were hoping to this year. We'd only be able to do so with free dining. Thanks for your insight

Free dining is few and far between this year. Remember so far only September will have seen free dining to date for 2013. Anything can happen, but don't bet the bank on it just yet.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking too ~ not looking promising. Oh well, at least we'll be at Disney anyway, right!? And since we've never stayed on site we won't know what we're missing, lol!

I'm also going in November (10-16) I only picked this week because I figured it was my best bet to get free dining.Touring plans show this to be a very slow week with park crowds around 1.5 to a 3.And since this falls after Jersey week I figured I had a good shot.Hopeing for the best.

Just curious. Will anyone actually be calling on Thursday on the very very very remote chance of a visa release? I think it's Monday but ya never can tell this year. The summer offer didn't drop til Tuesday and visa still released Thursday. But regardless, I'm betting some folks call about this everyday.

I'm not a cardholder, but was planning on calling the 9th first thing in the am..also was going to go online and see which I can get to first, but not really sure how to go about the online process. I'm going to try and figure that out first!! Also trying to get my TA to try and get in for me and see what she can do...crossing my fingers to keep the LM room!!
