I got AsMo for Sept. 1-9, first night room only discount, rest FD. CM said I was his first call of the day, but he already knew about the sale and had all the info in front of him. Long call due to a computer issue, but he got it done!

I've read that you can split your stay in order to take advantage of FD. Could I stay in the same hotel? How would it work?

Thanks!
The general public free dining offer will be the same as the DV FD offer and will open on May 9.

Just wanted to say thank you for the heads up this was coming!! Just changed our reservation to include the free dining...with 4 kids it is definitely worth it. Only took about 15 minutes on hold and 10 minutes with CM because computers were running slow from all the calls. Thanks again!!!

Got!!! So exciting - save us a bundle at POR since 2 of our 3 kids are now 'adults' as far as pricing goes

Thank you ALL for the leaks and information. I only had to wait about 10 minutes and I had a fantastic cast member. She said the phones have been going crazy this morning, but she has loved talking with so many excited families taking advantage of a great deal!!!

Very happy today ...... This has banished any Monday blues I was experiencing.

Do you have a Disney Visa? You have to specifically book a FD package. Just booking a room and ticket stay without using the FD offer code will not get you free dining. If you have a Disney Visa, call now, if not, call Thursday.

Tell them you want to book the FREE DINING special. They will take care of it. If you don't mention it, they'll be happy to charge you full price.

Edited to add: When you call on the 9th.
