I don't get them either....

Well tried again today and still no pin for my family. But she did ask if I had a family member or friend that received a pin and I could use it. So I told her I do have a coworker that received ones she said I could have them book it for us... Made it sound like we could just use their pin so I questioned it and she said well they have to go the same time and overlap our dates at least one day..... Well that isn't going to work since they aren't going to Disney this year... Keep hoping for a general public deal. We are going oct 2-13 with our family of 5.

If free dining comes out, can you book online or do you have to call? Say if it is a via cardholder offer, how do you book that? Thanks!

This seems to be even more plausible due to the fact that not everyone is able to pull this off.

We're working on a rhyme or reason behind this, but this truly is something of an anomaly, and I hope it's one that's here to stay.
Ok I had given up on calling but now I'm thinking I'll try again in the morning. It's kinda like when you buy a lottery ticket and you KNOW you aren't going to win but yet you buy it and dream right up until.....

When a promo is offered to Disney Visa holders first, you or your TA call Disney directly

I'm curious about something. For those that have gotten a pin, have you stayed on-site before? I know someone mentioned earlier that their notification said something to the effect "because you've stayed with us before" or something like that. I light bulb went off in my head a week or so ago ~ although I've been to WDW three times before, I have never stayed on-site. I had given up on getting a pin anyway but I think not staying on-site before may be a reason (among unknown others) that we didn't get a pin. Just trying to make sense of it ~ if there is any sense to be made, lol!

Yes you can. A lot of people choose to still call because there may be several switching around that has to be done (not getting preferred resort/room category,etc) and they feel more comfortable having a live CM checking out all their options.

You can only do it online if you're making a new resrvation. If you already have an existing reservation, you'll need to call (if you booked with a TA, your TA would need to call). Personally, I'd prefer to call anyway. CMs should be able to check availability faster than you can do online.
Good luck!

I went last year for the first time since 1997 and I did not stay on site. We stayed with my FIL in Sebring, FL. This time around we're staying at POP. We got FD back in May for October.

I totally understand that...I was trying to do the same thing earlier with the transferring to guest services theory. That got debunked! I don't think any one factor can be determined...seems there is always an exception...lol. But maybe you are on to something. I got a PIN and have always stayed on site; but this was my FIRST PIN ever!!! And gosh darn it, I was already booked with Sept. free dining. Oh well!!!
