I suppose we will see....

Any updates on a discount during the last week of August or is it still quiet on that front?
I definitely haven't heard anything concrete and haven't really heard any "Buzz" about room discounts for the last 2 weeks in August either. My take on this is because room only discounts are almost always going on at Disney. Other than some specific holiday and peak weeks you can pretty much always get a room discount at Disney. I track travel trends and discounts for lots of different travel companies and discount travel sites and Free Dining is almost always on the buzz sheet even though its only announced two or three times per year - people want and need that deep discount. The big hot topics this week around the travel blogosphere are WDW free dining, Groupon's getaway page that has a 10 day tour of China with airfare and meals from $999 person, Southwest airfare sale, Carnival and will they lower prices again and recover from the bad PR from the last year, etc. I think most people in the travel industry believe that WDW will release some room only discounts for the last 2 weeks of August because if not, they would have to have an unusually high occupancy rate, something comparable to a holiday or peak week, not to. Anything is possible and it could be some kind of fluke and they don't release anything for those dates, but I would think they will be released with the FD offer on the 9th or around June 14, when the current room only offer ends. So, hopefully not too much longer :-)

Those LM rooms have been blacked out of virtually every discount out there since they opened, so I'm anxious to see if anyone will be able to get a FD discount on this upcoming FD offer.

I have a package booked at the Poly during the free dining dates, but I already paid the deposit with a non-Disney Visa (I just received our cards today). Can I call and add free dining to our package when the Visa date happens, or do I have to wait until the regular announcement?

I thought I had read about someone who upgraded during the Visa dates, but had to have the CM cancel their original payment and then pay again with their Visa. And if I have to do that, will that affect my dining reservations?

Thanks for any help for a newbie!

You can call with your dv. You probably have to switch your deposit to your dv. It will not affect your dining reservations in any way.

In order to take advantage of the DV offer, you will just have to make a $200 payment towards your existing package with your DV. The balance can be paid on any card you wish by the 45 day mark.

All you will have to do is put down another $200 payment with the DV on your reservation. It doesn't affect your reservation and you don't have to cancel anything. Also, your dining Reservations don't have anything to do with your resort reservation. Even if you completely cancelled your WDW resort reservation and stayed off site, you would still have your dining reservations.
