We were originally booked at the AOA Finding Nemo Suite but had to change to the Cars Suite to get the free dining - not a problem with the savings we will get I am not concerned about the décor

Can't wait!!!
When I called yesterday to change from POFQ to POR for our August trip and then decided to book a FD Sept trip at POFQ the phone rep told me as long as I checked in the 25th of Sept, I would be good for the whole stay with FD.

I booked from 21st to 28 and my confirmation says free dining with no indication it will end on the 25th.

Anyway else hear things, either way, I would like to be certain because I will change my dates if I am going to lose 3 days of FD.

As long as a booking STARTS (aka checks in) on or before 9/25, they get free dining for their whole trip up to 14 nights.

We will be at WL September 15-21! Can't wait! Super excited to try WL. We have stayed at CBR 3 times and POR last time. We loved both hotels but wanted to finally give a deluxe a try and wanted to be closer to MK. I think we are going to LOVE IT!! But I would def go back to CBR and POR in a heartbeat!

We are going from 9/14 thru 9/22. Celebrating my DD's 12th birthday. We have only stayed at the values. We are staying at Pop I was thinking of trying POFQ but couldn't do it. I'm excited for free dining and we upgraded to deluxe dining.

If October FD is released we may change as DD won't miss as many days of school.

May I just add that I am ridiculously anxious about the MNSSHP this year, due to last year we were at the infamous Oct 4th one? (Rain? Sideways Lightning? More Rain? Why the heck not ). We stuck it out, and the dd had an amazing 20 min interaction with the Mad Hatter just before Midnight as there was no one else in the park...however, I would like to forego the waiting 45mins for a parade that never occurred, the lack of the headless horseman in the later parade, the rides not running (So what I take a chance of being struck by lightning, I'll be dead, who can I sue then?? ) and the overall soaked-ness. .

You will love it! We stayed there club level last year in a suite and it was fabulous. This year we're at one of the WL Villas. Sept. 14-20th. So if you see a really tall man and a curly haired woman pushing a double stroller with twins, that'll be us!
