Hoping the dates are a little off. We are planning dec 11-16. We might be able to do the dec 15 week, but my 4 high schoolers might have exams that week before Christmas break. Off to call the school board to check!

September 26 - October 2
October 18 - October 31
November 11 - November 23
November 30 - December 4
December 15 - 22

As usual, certain room types are excluded, such as campsites at Ft. Wilderness, 3-bedroom villas, and the Little Mermaid rooms at Art of Animation. A 3 night minimum stay (14 night maximum) and two day minimum park ticket is required for each person in the party.

Disney Value Resorts ~ Quick Service Dining Plan Included
(can be upgraded to regular plan)
All-Star Movies Resort
All-Star Music Resort
All-Star Sports Resort
Pop Century Resort
Art of Animation Resort (excluding Little Mermaid rooms)

Moderate Resorts ~ Regular Dining Plan Included
Carribean Beach Resort
Coronado Springs Resort
Port Orleans Resort French Quarter and Riverside

Deluxe Resorts ~ Regular Dining Plan Included
Animal Kingdom Lodge
Yacht & Beach Club Resorts
BoardWalk Inn
Contemporary Resort
Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
Polynesian Resort
Wilderness Lodge

Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts ~ Regular Dining Plan Included
Bay Lake Tower
Animal Kingdom Villas
Beach Club Villas
BoardWalk Villas
Old Key West Resort
Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa
The Villas at Disneys Wilderness Lodge
Fort Wilderness Cabins

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.

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!!!
HOW am I just seeing this now?? Thanks Black for the update on the leak. I am so happy for those that need fd. WOOHOO!!! That rocks!!

Remember, nothing is final until its final and things can always change. I know a few are also hoping for a room only discount. I hope they do the same as September and do both, that would make everyone's day.

I have always said any discount is good, but now I am pretty sure I will be disappointed with anything other than free dining. All this waiting made me greedy. LOL

So, if they do room-only discounts, will yet match the FD dates or cover dates FD does not cover?

Do not know if package includes just room and tickets; possibly dining too?

Oh, and book by June 14
Wow!! That sounds awesome!!!

I am in the camp that will need to run numbers to see what is a better deal...FD or RO...What a good problem that will be to have...

I'd love a RO discount... especially if it covered a few more days that FD might not hit. Is that a good possibility or another big wish?
What do ya think?? (in your educated and experienced guess) Exact match of FD days or slightly adjusted?
