My sister told me not to because she thinks it would be a waste of my time and money if they didn't offer the bounce back for next year. I am confused with what to do. I need to find some way of saving money whether with the F/D or R/O discounts. Advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
There will most likely be a Bounceback, but who knows what it will entail at this point and I don't think i would make a special trip - unless you normally take a WDW weekend trip or trips during the year.

I've been wondering where you've been 411, we've been in here trying to hold down the fort.

She told me that there were no Sept discounts out yet, and then she said Oh wait, I have this right in front of me, I cant believe I was trying to get you to book your trip without telling you. My res. is for POR MYW + dining and that on the 9th I can call back and apply the free dining discount to it, and then she told me how much it would save off the quoted res. price.
I confirmed that I could apply the FD to my trip starting 8/26 and she said yes that FD is running from sometime mid August until Sept. 28 (I think that was the ending date).

I'm going out to dinner now, but I think I'll call back later and ask again just to be sure.
luvmy3, Were you talking to a CM, or a TA? This is quite exciting

We're doing "OOP Dining" in December this year, as I know there won't be FD during our stay, but sure hope that other folks are able to catch it before Christmas!
Why would there not be free dining this December? I haven't heard any concrete info about WDW not offering free dining discounts for the Oct - Dec timeframe.

There has been a free dining Bounceback every fall since 2006 for the following fall. Also, we were offered bouncebacks in December 2010 and 2012 for August/September free dining dates.

We just got home from a party, but clearly I was missing the party on here! ;-)

I'll step out and agree on this one. I think the dates may be more limited like September, but unless bookings explode, don't be surprised if they pepper some dates with free dining.

The more time that goes by, the more I'm convinced that this year hasn't been radically different from years past. Last year was rather odd in free dining being offered quite a bit. They cut it out this spring, but that doesn't mean the fall is out of the question yet. That said, I do think they are cutting back, so the dates will be more select....maybe fewer rooms offered, but it all is up to how their occupancy levels are looking when they make the decision.

Businesses will do that so that you can remember easily what the number is. Actually it will work fine on a landline but may need to leave off the extra digit if dialing from a cell.

Technically, yes, you're right. But listing that the number is 404-WDW-Magi instead of -Magic doesn't quite fit the 'magiC kingdom'.

The more I think about this I begin to wonder if I really need to worry. I booked pretty late in the game last year when FD was offered, I mean the promo had been out for weeks and I still got my first pick. Granted, I was after Fantasia at ASM and not AoA (don't worry, I am after Pop this year!) but still.... hopefully this makes some of you feel a little better that if we can't get in right at 7 we aren't all doomed!

Now I've got this idea of late August free dining for Disney Visa holders rolling around in my head! I have just not been able to get over the surprise of no August free dining dates, after being offered for the last 9 years. It certainly would not be as good as a GP FD offer, but would still make a lot of people happy. I'm not even looking for my personal free dining dates until later on this year, but I can't wait to see what they release tomorrow :-)

Thanks everyone for bounce back info!! One more question is it only for the resort you are in or could you book in any resort? Thanks! This is our first time staying on Disney property! :-)

I'm hoping that my wait time on hold isn't going to make me late for work tomorrow ... but I have to get my priorities straight. I mean, I do need my job, but this is DISNEY we're talking about so the boss may just have to wait!
