They are on easywdw for free or you can pay for touring plans. Every site is usually different with their numbers.

There have been several Dis posts from people who have neighbors, friends, relatives who received a pin but weren't going to use it. (I've received 3 in the past month or so and didn't need them because our trip is during the Sep FD offer.)
There have been at least 3 waves of pin mailings in recent weeks so I would think that indicates bookings are not where Disney wants them to be so will be offering to GP, too. I know it would be cool to get one of those elusive pin codes, but getting FD via DVC/GP offer works too!
Keep hoping for your own personal FD pixie dust, Disfan. And for those odd moments when you feel yourself losing hope, remember that we're all here still hoping for you. Gotta keep the FD pixie dust & Mickey shaking going, right?!!
Thanks!!! You guys are the best!!!!

Another oops!

True, you have to take into account the unexpected too and sometimes that can not be done until the day of, that might draw more people to one particular park. And when they give you a "crowd" number, that is the average for all four parks. One might be a 2 and another an 8 on the same day. There are several sources for crowd calendars and some never factored in Free Dining which can change the results a little, but now most have caught on to FD and already have that factored in.

Hi All

Been lurking for a bit and taking comfort that I’m not the only one in the universe who hasn’t received a PIN. I have not received one of those allusive PINS, which I just learned about on here. And I too am hoping for the FDP to open up to the public.

We currently have reservations at the POFQ for Nov 30th through Dec 4th. That’s 4 nights/5 days. If the FDP opens up, do y’all think there be a 5 or 6 night restriction to qualify for it? Should I extend our stay for one more night (just give me a reason to do that ).

Thanks in advance for any help.

I think the minimum will be 3 nights, but just in case you better add a night. lol

I had read that...but was wondering if we had an Early, Middle or Late July idea? We are super busy in July and I want to know that I am going to be available to book this...since I'm sure what I want will go fast

Sorry if a question like this has been asked before.

We'll be staying at AoA Cars October 14th through 19th. Then we'll be off site the 19th through the 26th. Would we be eligable for free dinning even though our check in date falls before the window?

We can change our plans around but I'd rather not at this time.
