20 years of WDW visits at Deluxe resorts, Disney Visa cardholder, member of just about every Dis club I can think of, never seen a PIN. I called again this AM and no luck. I always got free dining from Visa or general offer.

I got the best rates by booking early and often. But this years trip will cost 2000.00 more than last year and we only have the DP not the DDP.

May cancel as its a huge vacation expense increase over last yer for the exact same trip.

Just called and received free dining for our Oct. 27-Nov. 2 stay. My cousin who is also going at same time got a pin in an email. I have received no correspondence from Disney despite signing up for emails and ordering vacation dvd (which i have not received). The Disney agent told me I couldn’t get it because i didn’t have the PIN. I asked how do i get on the list she said she didn’t know and I got a little angry and said “I’m asking you to market to me and you won’t do it?!” She put me in touch with Marketing Dept and after about a 20 min wait the marketing agent said she got it done for me. Saved our party of 8 $1800!! She went on about how nice i was about it so i guess kindness goes a long way.
FYI she told me she doesn’t know how people get on those lists and that the rumor of signing up for a Disney Visa is not true…won’t necessarily get you on the “list”

I was reading the thread last weekend and seen where everyone was getting pins so I decided to call but the systems were down and could not get through. A couple days later I was sitting at my parents (which live next door) and she said I received this a couple weeks ago and started to throw it away but kept it so you could see what it is. It was a PIN in my dads name! We all live at the same address but different houses so we were both able to use it. I would have never known anything about a PIN if it weren't for you all here! And we could not have afforded to go this December if it weren't for the PIN so I am so glad we received a PIN! I booked right away so we are officially booked for our very 1st WDW trip and are going Dec. 1-6 at Pop Century with Regular Dining!

Just wondering what people are saying to Guest Relations & marketing to get FD even though they don't have a pin. I'm happy that they have but just don't understand by just asking for it you got it. I have called multiple times spoke with guest relations, advised we arrive on my birthday, haven't received DVD(which I haven't) and still nothing. So for those of us that are not receiving FD and those that are receiving FD despite lack of pin what's your secret?

Seems a bit immature to me. You call a business and angrily request to be marketed to?

No need to get nasty. I wasn't ugly about it and yes that's what I said. Got passed on to marketing and got lucky I guess.

Is this the first year Disney hasn't offered (other than PINS and September) FD since it began?!? I feel bad for everyone on here. It just so happens our anniversary is in September so we decided to go then and got lucky!

Good luck to everyone on here! I know we NEVER got PINS.

I think the first couple of years it was in hurricane season only (Aug./Sept.) I don't think they even started doing late fall until after that. I remember being surprised when they offered it for late fall.

We have called multiple times. Asked for marketing. Have signed up for everything we can. The one thing we did do was book thru my BIL who is a TA. Would that lessen our chances of getting a pin? He is a certified disney TA. Thoughts??

I don't think there is anything you can to lesson your chances. Of course I don't know this for sure but many have gotten pins when already booked.

That's not happening. That "new" poster was clearly trying to ruffle feathers. There's no way.

Actually there have been several posters over on the other thread that's been given free dining but didn't have a pin. Apparently they have a few pin codes they can use at their discretion, but there's no rhyme or reason as to who gets one and who doesn't.
