This is kind of exciting!! Like I said earlier in a post, the CM I talked to this morning said she thought they would know about Oct discounts either this month or next (June). I have never had a CM tell me that in all the many calls I have made. Usually they go the complete opposite with they don't know of anything in the future.

I think I am just trying to grasp on to any kind of hope for a discount!

If I can't be one of the lucky ones to receive one of those awesome pins then I would at least like to know something before July or August!

I had a CM tell me a couple of weeks ago, June would be when October promotions come out. I luckily received a PIN for FD last weekend. But my fingers, toes and eyes are crossed for everyone else who's going in October to get FD!

For anyone who is booked around Oct 6-13:

Have you guys noticed many of the deluxe resort categories are booked, and some of them are booked altogether? I guess for the Gartner symposium?

I think this a really bad sign for us to get a room discount. Why discount resorts that are already booked?

Sad when I played with booking a mid-September room at Beach Club or even the Poly with 30% off, and it's around the same price as I'm paying for POR on my dates.

I really can't change my dates.

Just had to vent somewhere.

Many YC/BC rooms are also booked for mid- to late Oct too. We were contemplating a split stay, but will probably just stick with POR or maybe a AKL split instead. Not sure if it might be because of F&W too?

You are right, I bet F&W plays a big part in booking up the Epcot resort area.

You know, I know it's just a crazy rumor, but at this point I'll take it. Anything to keep my promotion hope alive. Also, it would be way more convenient to hear if there is a promo before I book the airline tickets.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for all of us!!!!

We're booked the 8-14 at POFQ. Do you have AAA? That is the only discount I was able to get for that time. While it's not a huge discount, every little bit helps.

Grumpfh...

Just received 3 emails from Disney Destinations (3 different email accounts), and there was no mention of FD. I got my hopes up there for a moment after hearing the FD chatter...

Me, too. I am trying to look on the bright side and think that at least I know I'm on the mailing list. Maybe we'll get lucky if they send a second round.

Ha ha, I was thinking that too! That and DH didn't even get an email, and his email is on the reservation/My Disney Experience. There's still time...

Currious Trend I noticed

I noticed that on some previous posts that there seems to be a logic behind the PIN Email. In our case my wife booked our last Disney Vacation under her account and email and all that she received was a room discount that was, if I remember, only 20% for moderate and it expired on May 15.

I booked our trip three years ago under my account and I got the free dining PIN. It seems that if Disney feels that you have not been there in a while (through your booking account) then they are giving the incentives to those people. A suggestion to some people is to create a different account and book using these different accounts so that you have a ability to play the odds. It does not help for this year but maybe in the future it will work.

Actually, this would make sense. They usually give a discount a few days after the current promotion ends. The summer RO deal must be booked by June 14th.
My question is wil they just give us a new RO deal or will they extend the FD deal with added dates? Historically, can any one give an educated guess?

My check-in is not part of the current dates on the free dining pin...really hoping for something for the general public that we can use on our honeymoon Oct 6-15!

We haven't been since 2010, my parents since 2007 and my cousin since 1996 and none of us got a pin at all. So I really think there is no rhyme or reason. They are just random.
