so after 30 mins on hold tonight, I ended up booking a new reservation for our stay online with the free dinning!!
I will just ring in a few days, after its everyone has gone & booked and cancel our old reservations. I am wondering why so many people are ringing, when you can book it online? I actually didn't know you could haha, otherwise I would have just done that, now lets just hope my phone bill isn't too bad. I have a few more phone calls to make to Orlando!

Hope whoever else is hoping to get FD gets through tonight!

Not long until we go, my count down timer says 138 days to go!!!

Well done to both of you for getting what you wanted

Also, great to her POFQ is included in the free dining. I noticed that last year it was usually the one excluded from various promotions.

I'm renting DVC, so am not eligible for free dining if and when it's offered either. But by renting I'm saving approx $280 p/n off the rack rate of the resort. By comparison, free dining for 3 people would save me just under $130 p/n. So I'm not feeling at all upset that I'm not eligible for FD. I'm just extra excited I found a way of being able to afford a deluxe resort. I can't wait either!
