Which phone number are people calling to see if they have a PIN?

The regular dining number?

Although the reservation is in my name - could I get my hubbie to call and check?

Cheers!

You call the regular resort reservation line. I call 1 (407) W-DISNEY. He should be able to call. Good luck!

I called today and they said no pin, and then i said could you check under all our names? then she checked my husbands name and said yes there it is. BUT NOT FOR your Little Mermaid room! I'd have to change resorts to say Pop Century or upgrade to a suite at Art of Animation, and then it would have to be two different reservations since we arrive on the 9th and free dining starts on the 11th. I did the math and that only saves us $230 because when you make another reservation for the two days, you lose the money in park tickets which are cheaper the longer you stay. So free dining is not of much use to us.

Ever thought about a split stay ? Make a room only reservation for the first two nights and then the FD package with two additional ticket days. You can make early ticket pickup up to three days before the check in date of your package at any park guest service desk....

It wasn't the actually group page that posted it. It was someone in the post reply who said it. It was the Disney Addict group. Someone asked when is the cheapest month to visit. And people were saying September. And free dining. And someone said.
"They are full my brother is a cast member and we checked thru him. There also very slim choices for dining which indicates they will be busier than normal in September."

He was responding to someone else saying they're booking up with free dining. Most people were saying. This isn't true.

I feel we get paranoid about bigger crowded being brought in by FD but then it's fine once we get there.

Disney always says no over the phone. But it is done a lot. A Disney Ticket CM has written out all the helpful info in this thread:

No pin for me, though we had one last year for late Nov/early Dec and loved free dining! Anyone know if they tend to give out pins to those who haven't been to Disney recently?

People are still getting new FD reservations. If the brother is a CM and was checking with a CM discount it is entirely different. The whole statement sounds off honestly. If a CM was checking for availability with FD they'd check the same way you or I would.

I imagine it will be busier then usual but I definitely think 'booked up' is a huge stretch. This whole year seems busier than the norm.
