So glad to hear possible plans of the extension . We want to check in on September 28th so we get a good week of F&W as well as letting the kids enjoy the Halloween party. Thanks for posting

Thanks Joe, I'm really glad to hear the leaks that it should go public.
Disney seems to have forgotten to give me a Pin code this year and we are hoping to check in Nov 21st.
We really do appreicate all that you and Danny do to keep us as informed as possible.
I've got my Visa on standby and I'm ready to book once it opens up.
Thanks again, you made my day.

Is it time to give up hope for free dining in late Aug? I didn't win the PIN lottery. We did opt to pay for the QS dining package. The Jury is out whether it makes financial sense, however it does make for a less stress vacation not having to worry about spending too much or skimping.

I think your best bet is to hope really hard for a PIN code.

This gives me some hope! I think my girls ask me everyday if we are going back to Disney and my husband, that tolerates our obsession, has started to ask if I have heard anything about free dining. Maybe he is secretly coming over from the dark side! Free dining saves us $1000 at least and that means we can afford to go.

Anything is possible, but not as likely. Also, if a certain date range sells well on the PIN, they would pull that from the public offer.

Don't forget too, that you can check in on the last day of the offer and continue your trip up to 14 days beyond that.

Sources tell me that an extension of the free dining promotion past the September dates could be announced as early as July. Most, if not all, of these date ranges from the PIN codes should be included, depending on availability and how well the PIN code offers sell.
Thanks for the information . Any hints for RO discounts in addition to FD for December?

Remember that the free dining offer for September expires on July 31st, and in the past, October-December offers have been released as late as August 3. While still too early to nail down an exact date, things are starting to come a bit more into focus.

These sources are quite good, and the same ones I got the September Free Dining, as well as the August-September Room Only Discounts that nobody else on the Dis even mentioned (and brought lots of relief to many late-August travelers as well).

Let me also make a word of caution concerning leaks.

1. These promo leaks, while helpful on the nerves, don't actually get anyone a deal any sooner. In the end, you still have to call in on the day it's released and wait on hold right along with people who just found out that very morning. So again, the leaks sure do settle the nerves, but they don't get anyone any special privileges, nor do they get you in the door any quicker.

2. I never ever advise anyone to make any non-refundable plans based on a leak. To date, there has been NO LEAK that hasn't had mistakes. Take for example the September free dining, where the Little Mermaid rooms were said to be included...they were not. Similar mistakes have happened with EVERY leak in the past, from misquoted date ranges, to rooms said to be included, but were not. Which is why I always say, don't bet the farm until the announcement is official.

I will keep everyone updated as things become more and more clear. I will tell any information I receive, as I receive it, even if it's bits and pieces of partial information. I have no plans of making anyone wait this out, not even for a minute....because I know how nerve racking this is for everyone.

As June progresses, we'll hear more...in the meantime, you may very well receive that elusive PIN code, as they are still being sent out.

Good vibes everyone!!!
Great news- thank you for the update - hoping that our arrival date of oct 5 will be added

Thanks Joe! Waiting and hoping. My dates fit. Into current pin dates quite well, but my luck it will likely be one if the sets of dates that is pulled due to high sales. Guess we won't know for sure until early August though. Waiting as always!

Hi Tinker Pam--they seem to have forgotten us too but seem to have remembered our entire extended family. Of course we are the only ones planning to go. We are also checking in on the 21st. I hope we get some free dining as three of our children are Disney adults.
