I had written down the dates that you had thought FD would be available earlier last week. I checked them against the pin offer and MAN were you dead on! Some were a day in either direction but the spacing and weeks were correct. I def. bow down to your knowledge! Now if I could just get the pin and end this excruciating wait, I would be golden...lol. Thanks again!

I'm going crazy bc I just booked my trip 2 days ago and everyone got pins the next day. I know they are selective and I prob wouldn't have gotten one anyway, but now I'm wondering if my date will get one at all. It falls under the time everyone says is on the Pin. They ususally do come out later, but POFQ is POPULAR and always runs out quickly. Is it true that for every release like this they set aside a certain amount of rooms per group they release to? Like the Pins then Disney Credit then everyone?

There should be a GP FD offer with most of those fall/winter dates and each resort will be allotted rooms for the GP promo. Some room categories may not be available, but POFQ will not be totally blacked out.

We're booked for 11/17 - 11/23 at WL with park tickets but no dining plan. If free dining is offered to the general public for this time period, will I be able to add free dining to my existing vacation package when/if it is announced? I'm willing to switch to another Disney resort if necessary to take advantage of free dining but would rather not purchase a dining plan at all unless I can get it for free.

Also, who likes my chances of either free dining or a room discount being offered during my chosen week?!? Mr. Black? 411? Anyone?

Many thanks!

Yes, this is what I have done for our past two trips. I book the room & ticket package and, when FD is released, I call and add it to our ressie. Hope everything works out for you.

Made the decision that we can't justify going to Disney for Christmas with our pin. It killed me, really wanted to use it, but 5k to spend a week at Disney with 5 million people and pools that are too cool to use just doesn't make sense, so instead we will take the kids to great wolf lodge for a few weekends here or there. I still really want to use it but its definitely the right decision not to spend 10 grand at Disney between sept and dec. Now if only I could convince my buddy to go to Disney with me in November instead of our trip to cuba or mexico.

ASMovies is great!...
We stayed there briefly last summer and had a ball!
