There's hope!! We go all the time and we never get pins. Never rec'd an email but figured I would call and see. Just had it added to my package for Wilderness Lodge 10/21-10/27. Good Luck everyone. Doesn't hurt to call and see what can happen.

So is there any hope for the 1st week/2nd wk in Oct that isn't included in the FD? I tried to switch our dates but couldn't make it happen due to work and DD school schedule. So bummed but DH was so calm and said we booked it thinking we were paying for the meal plan and my reply I mentally had the savings spent on Disney stuff- BBB and bday treats to room etc. Happy to those you got to use it.

The pin code email specifically states that the LM rooms at AOA are not included in the free dining discount. If its not included for the pin, it's likely it won't be included for the GP FD discount.

I know!! Do you think it would be wise to go ahead and switch to POP now so I get a better chance at my room choice before any FD details come out? I don't think my room choice is considered preferred, 60s building lake view upper floor if possible.

Just for convenience sake, you may want to go ahead and switch, but booking a certain room or room category will not "save" you a room for a FD promo, as all resorts are only allotted so many FD rooms/discounts per resort.

I'm not a fan of the DDP. However I've been watching because I thought I might move if a good RO rate came out. (at POFQ GV right now and would maybe switch to POR prefered if FQ was out of the discounts), but now think I might be within the dates if OCT offers FD.

I'm already paying rackrate so it's not like it would cost me more. I don't eat all that many TS (and I'm not a dessert eater or a soda drinker plus a coffee snob so mugs are a waste), but if it's the same money or less then I could get it and use it to pay for the two ADR's I do have planned, then just use what I use and don't worry about using up all the other credits. I'm sure I can use all the snack credits on F&W days.

Of course it will matter if they have a time limit on it. I'm only staying 4 nights so if it requires a 5 night stay then it's all moot.


I'm not a big fan of getting something for the sake of getting something but I did go look at some ADR's today and might plan on one for our first night in (we were planning on EoS at DTD). I have one signature so that would take care of two of them right there and a reg TS on our last morning so really just one more TS. I might end up dumping some QS credits but it's not like I'd be losing money.


ACKKKKKK! I'm OCD about pre planning so I'd have a whole new "thing" to learn, and figure out how to use meal credits when half my trip is snack centered at F&W. I may prepare just in case as I don't want to be rushing it in Aug when rates come out.

All free dining promos have a 3 night minimum and 14 day maximum booking requirement. Any other verbiage you see is solely for advertising purposes. Also, as of January 2012, they will allow you to "trade" TS credits for CS credits. Also, Snack credits can be used at the F&W booths.

A 5 night stay is not required, it is a min of 3 nights from what I understand. I think prepping before the discount comes out is a great idea!

No Pin here either. Currently booked at POP starting 10/19. Don't plan on DDP due to eating habits and desire for ordering flexibility, but if FD is offered, will likely upgrade to a moderate as we do have a bunch of TS meals booked.

I got a pin here as well and ours was for a minimum stay of 5 nights so maybe it all depends on the PIN number. As for the free dining general offer it has been my experience that it is usually a minimum of 4 nights. Good luck to all of those waiting for a PIN or Free dining.

I just booked for POR garden Oct 22-29.
