I can honestly say after reading all the comments about the pins. I went to disney world.com and requested a DVD and registered this morning. I called tonight and was told i had a pin available for select dates through December. We are going in November and are set on a Nemo suite... There are none available. told me only lion king and cars were left for the FD.

I didn't get an email but when I called I did have it. She told me I had 2 pins-some room discount for Sept pin also. I gladly used the pin as my dates were oct. 17-27. Saved $1840!

Looking at the results many more didn't get it than did. Puts it in much better perspective. Reading the threads it looks like almost everyone got it. LOL Thanks for voting those who have. Hopefully they will send out another batch soon, and more of us can say we got it.

Yes, this really helps me feel better! I often feel like everyone has a pin but me

It may sometimes seem that way here in the Dis, where everyone is obsessing over getting a discount on a WDW vacation, but really only a VERY small percentage of the population get these type of pin codes. I really believe that most, if not all, of these FD pin code dates will drop for the general public in July :-)

Add me to the list of people who do everything to get a PIN and don't get them.

I called today and I don't have one

At least we have the room only for late August... Would have loved free dining now that my kids are both Disney "adults".

We got 4 separate PINs for our family and we all live at different addresses. My Sis even got 2! so we were able to book everyone in our group in separate rooms with FD. Not sure what we did to get so lucky, but I hope it goes public for others to benefit from it.

When we planned our trip a few years ago, I opened accounts on the Disney website using my e-mail in my name and a joint account with my husband in his name. DH consistently gets every PIN offer sent in the mail or through e-mail. Me? Nothing! It does seem that they randomly attach to certain people.

I didn't word it well, but I was trying to say that she could get it for the 11th and following, but only if that was when she checked in. In order to do that, she would have to change dates.

Count me among those who have been going to WDW for many, many years. Sometimes booking through WDW; sometimes booking through a TA --- but I have never received an email PIN.

My question for those of you who have received PINS --- what sorts of restrictions are attached to the current FD pins? I understand about date restrictions. But what about resort selection and room category selection.

I have my son and his bride booked at POFQ in a King room for their honeymoon in September. According to my TA, the current public FD promo is not available for the King category.

Just wondering IF I were to be so lucky to receive the email PIN, would I be able to use it for my currently booked POFQ King category?

I have received several pins over the years including this free dining one and I always book over the phone. I have not requested a DVD this year, but I have in the past. I am also a disneyshopping.com customer, and I have an account at waltdisneyworld.com. Other than that I have no clue why I get them.

Have you talked to your son about a room with double beds? I would give up a king, yes even on my honeymoon, for free dining.

I do know that I could not book a preffered room with the FD discount. Other than that I am not sure of any restrictions.
