Yes there are many blackout dates during those months. I think the public offer will be very close to those dates, if not exactly.

Really? I thought that the fd pin would just be a pin. Historically do general codes usually follow pins? I would be SOOO happy if it did as I am going on October1-8

Sometimes yes. Sometimes no. However, i think the timing of this is telling.

Columbus Day is 10/14.i booked us arriving the Thursday (10/10) before. It is the last date before "Columbus Day" room pricing. I had hoped this would get us checked in before the blackout dates.

I'm confused!

Is there always a public offer released after a pin code is offered?

And when it says, "Starting date..." does that mean we can arrive on October 30th, stay for 7 nights and still get free dining?

I want a pin too! Waaah!

The October - December free dining discounts for the general public are usually released in July, sometimes August. Most of the FD pin code free dining dates, if not all, will drop for the general public this summer.

As long as your check in date falls within the FD promo dates, you can have the discount applied to your entire stay, up to 14 nights.

Sorry, but you can't use it. They are non-transferable.

I called yesterday to verify if I had a pin linked to my name as our dates are Nov 17-23 and was advised no. I asked about offer being released to general public and was advised historically yes it is, a couple of months after, but can't guarantee because Disney marketing changes year after year. So hopefully...crossing fingers.

That's a bummer. Are all emails done going out? And now we wait for snail mail pins? And then Disney Visa card holders and then GP offer ? Sheesh! They should just put it out there for all who wants to go and be done with it!

Oh that's encouraging. Last email I got from Disney destinations was April 22! Sure wish they would have waited and sent me the FD pin this week. The one on apr 22 was just a general offer for no real discount.

Will keep on checkin email

Thanks for the info! I haven't had time to respond since Thursday! It worked like a charm and I got through in just a couple minutes while my other phone was still on hold! Got what I needed! Can't wait until September now!

Now the fall FD dilemma is over. (Well mostly). I'm already thinking about my next Disney trip. Thinking of switching it up and going in the spring. Possibly April but not the week of Easter. Do they ever run promos for the spring ? Also, what about a bounce back. Of they offer any bounce back at all. Is it usually meant for he fall or can you book it for any time of the year ? Thanks !
