Thanks!
That's what we have been hearing (early August). But, I am really hoping that something can still come out this month. Waiting is killing us. Good luck!!

Could you call Disney even if you booked it through a TA?

I believe so. I asked the question a wee while ago - but lost the number to call.

I'm booked in for 28th Sept -> Oct 6th, I'd LOVE a free dining code, but I'm starting to lose hope.

Smile I got free dining

I got free dining heading there with my 2 kids from September 28 to Oct 5. A friend at work got a coupon in the mail and she gave it to me for free dining. I actually changed my reservation from Art of Animaton to POR and got free meal plan and saved almost $200 dollars.
I did the free meal plan 2 years ago and thought it was fantastic.
Good Luck !!!

If you are booked with a TA, they are the only one who can call and add a discount to your booking.

Don't give up just yet. It is not time for the Oct. discounts to be released. I would not get nervous about the possibility of no discounts until mid-August at the earliest.

We have to have ours paid for by the first of August and we have had some major medical issues with a family member so we are really hoping for free dining also. Hoping to celebrate a great recovery from open heart surgery in October!

Oh wow!!! We are leaving on Oct. 2. I hope that those dates become public so that we can revise our reservation. I also hope that you get the dates that you want. FREE DINING FOR EVERYONE!!!!

Okiedokie, Cool.

I'm antsy ... :-) I know...
This is is our first ever Disney vacation, and our first vacation that doesn't involve a tent... AND... it's our DD's 5th birthday :D
Hoping to make it as special as possible, we're going through fertility issues and HOPE to be pregnant again next year - which would mean that we wouldn't be thinking of going back to Disney for quite some time if we are blessed with a second child.

Free dining would be a great surprise, and so welcomed.
My DD loves "going out to eat".

Just spoke with someone in reservations, on the off chance there was a pin attached to my account for our trip october 19. Unfortunately, there wasn't. She did say that the last wave of pins has gone out for that time period, and they don't know if those discounts will go open to the general public. Just wanted to run that past y'all for verification!

I spoke with a CM last week for the same reason and they told me they thought the Fall offers would be out in the next couple of weeks. But I learned not to take anything a CM say's to heart.

I'm hoping for a room only discount that falls around 10/20-10/22 because we are (sadly) only spending two nights on property, and three nights and two days of tickets would make it MORE expensive for me ( we are doing one day plus mnsshp).

But a room discount would be fab. Sadly, the last time I got an email pin was 3/2011.

gbaker, from my understanding even if you have already paid for the vacation, if free dining is offered for the period in which you are staying you can still add it right up till like 48 hours before your check-in. So don't give up on it yet!

All dining plans must be added 72 hours prior to check in.
