Yes, but those discounts won't come out until this summer, probably July. Predicted dates:

Nov 11-23 and Nov 30 - Dec 4
Dec 15-22

I guess it makes sense since as smitch said they are the most popular right now. I really had my heart set on it, but the deal was too good to give up. I booked ASMo and I'm a little nervous because we have never been before. But it's still disney

You will love it! I have stayed on the AoA LM rooms and many times at ASMo, and they are both fun and cute, but I would not pay full price to stay at any WDW resort :-)

Same deal as other free dining offers where you get quick service at Values (can upgrade to regular plan for $19 per person a day) and regular dining plan at moderates and deluxe.
Normally the 5 night/ 6 day thing is just a suggestion. Are you sure the minimum night stay is 5?

The exact wording on email is: Enjoy A Free Dining Plan when you purchase a non-discounted 5-night/5-day Walt Disney Travel Company room and ticket package at select Walt Disney World Resort hotels.

I interpreted this as you had to book at least five nights, but I'm not sure. I did not ask the agent on the phone as I was booking 8 nights and 9 days anyway.

I got the pin too, that's just the advertising verbiage. All free dining promos, pin or otherwise, have a 3 night minimum and 14 day maximum booking :-).

It also said 5 night/5day which is odd because you'd think it should say 5 night/6 day.

if you are talking about the pin, it seems to be a min. 5 night because when I input it in the system and try to select less than 5 nights it doesn't allow me.

Just booked POR for Oct 22-31 with free dining PIN!
We are so happy that we got a PIN since we offered to take DD friend this year and they are now both Disney adults

Am I the only one trying to figure out how to use the pin as well as the sept dining offer? I am trying to figure out how I can convince myself to spend another fortune to take the kids back to Disney, maybe over Christmas. Makes a good Christmas present although 5k for a week is quite the Christmas present.

Guess I am moving on and hoping for GP. I was really hoping to have the pin when I woke up this morning. It is all I dreamt about last night.
