That includes the dates that I'm going! I know the PINs are emailed out (thanks to help on another forum) but how do you make sure your email is at least in the pool to have a shot at it?

my sister just got the same FD pin code she got a few weeks ago with the same dates, etc....of course we can't use it as we will not be there during the times it is available oh well, we will have a good time even if we don't have free dining as we will be in WDW

Looks like a lot of the people receiving PINs are people who received the first round of PINs. Did anyone not get a PIN a couple of weeks ago and get one now? I think this might just be a re-send to everyone on the first list.

Another question - did anyone else who got a PIN this time get the 11/30 - 12/15 PIN that Fenwar mentioned? talmarsh had the old dates of 11/30-12/4 and 12/15 - 12/22.

this year we are planning nov 9-17th and last year that is when free dining was offered and i wrote down when it was advertised and it was in July. I would like a pin though, so that i can know sooner if i'm going to save all that money!

So I see posts on FB today. Saying. For September the resorts are "full" for free dining rooms. Which means this sept will be crowded. Not like the normal low crowds in the fall. What the heck !? True ????

We went November 10-17 last year and this year taking a quick trip November 7-12. We were hoping to do a room only for the first night and take advantage of free dining for the rest of our stay. From the pins coming out, looks like there won't be any free dining for us. but that's okay, like a pp said, we'll still be at Disney! (And no kids this trip which brings our cost waaaaay down )

When you say "room only" ... does that mean you only have a room reservation - no park tix ?

Our trip will fall like that -- first day no FD offered... but we took a 6am flight hoping to add another whole day on to our trip...

No. Meaning. The rooms that are available for the free dining promo are almost sold out.

They only hold a small percentage of rooms for each discount at each resort. So while a resort is "full" under a discount, it is not full as in the entire resort is booked.
