No late August free dining, but the is a public room offer coming out May 9th, too. Can be booked as room only or as a package with tickets (and a paid dining planing if you want one).

I have a group of four rooms that I booked today. Got three confirmations back in the first half hour for the free dining add-on. The fourth has not come back yet. I called back and they stated that they can see it on their screen that I am signed up for that fourth room with free dining, and to expect the e-mail. That was many hours ago. I know that it can "take up to 24 hours," but is this odd that one of my rooms did not get confirmed yet when the other three did right away? Anyone else with a similar issue? I have a hard time calming down and feeling secure until I see it in print!

What a great day! We had 8 nights booked for 9/17 that we applied FD to today! And were able to book direct flights out of Buffalo for under 190 a ticket with a morning departure and an evening return flight!

Congrats to all who were waiting for this!!!

Reservation Split

Free dining here we come! I was able to split our reservation.

15% room discount applied to Aug. 31-Sept.2 reservation and free dining to Sept. 2-Sept. 7! In the end we are saving $77 which they will credit back to our credit card. Whew! took about an hour on the phone but its worth it!

Just going to call back tomorrow and confirm all the changes went through. Poor cast member I called him right at the end of the day and made him jump through all these hoops but he couldn't have been nicer. That's why I LOVE disney!

We did a similar trip, Check in at Contemporary Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend and left 7 days later. We had FD.

Great week to be there too.

Did you received an email from Chase Disney Visa, regarding this offer? I usually get an email, but didn't receive one for this offer. I'm waiting and hoping for an October-November offer of free dinning.

I received an email on Monday in the afternoon. To me, that was rather late.

Hi, those are almost my dates, we are arriving on Friday 8/30. Will you be picking your tickets early? I read here that it can be done and then upgrade them to last you entire vacation. But I also read that the call center CMs don't know it can be done, and if you ask them they'll say you can't. So I'm a bit worried.

I did the math and if I split the stay into 2 packages it would end up costing us $800 MORE. So I need to be sure I will be able to do room only 8/30 - 9/2 and then pick the tickets early and upgrade.

Any advice?

Check out the ticket sticky for info on picking them up early.

Why would you need to upgrade...couldn't you just buy the ticket amount you wanted with your package? It doesn't have to match your nights...it can be for any offered amount.

I've had a Disney Visa for many years and hardly ever receive emails from them about discounts and promos. I've always seen their discounts and promos on the Internet long before Chase sent the info, if they even sent the info at all.

Why would it cost you more? It should save you money off full price rack rates to do the split stay to take advantage of the FD promo. Also, you wouldn't need to "upgrade" your tickets, you would simply be picking up your package tickets early.
