Has anyone that's going the latter couple of dates in the latest pin offer had any success with just calling and finding they had a pin? We check in 11/30 and I've called a couple of times with no success. I've seen some October-goers commenting here that they called and called then got one but no later date ones. Just wondering if I'm wasting my time and the poor reservation CMs! I'll keep trying and waiting for the Disney Visa announcement.....

We are going 12/1-12/8. I called today (again!) but I still do not have a pin. The CM did tell me that they are still releasing the pins in waves. She also said that the offer should go public and hinted that it could be as early as June. I am not sure if she really knows what she is talking about but my hopes are up!

I didn't receive a pin code, we have just been calling. We are traveling with another person (she is traveling solo) and she called last night and the CM siad he'd check under her "special offers" and saw that he could upgrade her to the Free Dining. Our reservations are linked with a "travel with" number, so I am not sure if she had the pin code or if we did. BUT the CM did tell her that rooms are going fast and that we should call ASAP.

DH called at 7am today and didn't even mention anything to the CM that our friend received Free Dining and she looked and said we were eligible. (I imagine they could see the reservations were linked but the CM just didn't say that). We had to upgrade to a Royal Guest room, but we still are saving @$1300!!! I just got the e-mail confirmation!! woo hoo !!

Extremely unlikely. The current public offers already cover that timeframe.

I know this question has been asked a zillion times, so sorry for repeating... but, how do I get a pin? It seems like everyone on this board gets them regularly, but I have never received one.

Completely and totally random. Very frustrating but there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason. You can order the free planning DvD, price out dates on the website while signed in with your username, but this doesn't guarantee a pin, just suggestions to make sure you're in the system.

I am going the first week of December and I keep calling to see if I have a pin with no luck. I get e mail from Disney Destinations, but it is only for the video or the letterhead. I even ask if my daughter has one, since we are traveling together, she has a discount but only is good for the end of August.
So I am keeping my fingers crossed, that one day when I call the pin will be there. Need a little pixie dust here please.

It is frustrating! We have never gotten a pin either! They have both mine and dh's email addresses. We order the DVDs each year, get information via email and snail mail all the time from dvc, personalized maps, you name it, we have tried it! We just aren't lucky people.

Free dining would be SO great for this trip! We will be there 12/1-12/6 and hoping that this offer is released to the GP!

Ok so I'm excited to see that there are pins for FD in the end of October for dates that I already have a reservation for. But a quick question... Does anyone else already have ressies at WDW resorts and have still gotten a pin after they've already booked? I find it unlikely that WDW would send a pin to someone who already has reservations made, but I'm just wondering. Also when do you all think that FD will be made public for the end of October?

People get PINs all the time when they are already booked. Public releases for Oct-Dec dates historically are released in July, sometimes August.
