Grand total savings is $4928.06. Now that's a lot of Mickey bars!!!!!
Thanks everyone for the welcome. I calculated our savings and we would save $2800 with free dining so I'm keeping positive thoughts it will be announced soon. But until then I will listen to my Disney playlist and join the group of DAA!

It will be his first time enduring a princess meal (Akershus) last time he suffered through princess signings because he wanted to fill his vinylmation.

Yeah the only worth Uni's FD has for me (I love Uni, just not a fan of the plan or the food or the lack of large family on site options)

I think you've answered my question anyway about not getting the leak anywhere but from within the boards themselves. Kind of what I figured. I was just hoping it would jump off the front page... Call me lazy.
Once I saw a Danny25 leak linked on that first page but only once that I remember it ever happening.

Well I had decided I wasn't going to worry about free dining because I would not save that much (short trip and I'm on a bounceback) but now I've added 2 days to that and had to pay rack rate room only ( could have gotten the add on at bounceback rate but was told I'd have to switch to CB or CS and I really want POFQ even though at the end of my stay I have to check out of standard and into garden view. Ugh.) Now if free dine will come out and I can get that with ANY room at POFQ I'd be happy but I'm thinking even if free dining is offered POFQ may not have my dates available as they seem to be booked. Oh how I wish I'd booked more days to start with! Lesson learned! If I get an offer this year I'm going to book for at least a week and adjust as needed. On a happy note we are going to Seaworld for the first time. I hope its worth the $500 for tickets for the day plus the additional hotel cost.

Thanks for your insights, black562. I am considering a trip near the end of December, with a check in just before the rumored last day for free dining if the extension is made by Disney.

When I see a big increase in the number of pages in the thread, I know that the final verdict/prediction by black562 on a possible extension will have been made!

If my math is right I will save a little bit since there are only 2 of us. Right now I have the Regular Dining Plan and am staying at Pop. If it did my math right and go with the upgrade I will save somewhere around $300-400 after paying for the upgrade back to full dining.

So it's not a lot but for 2 of us it's enough to spread around a little and get tickets to MNSSHP!

Do the Visa offers "leak" ahead of time? Or do we not know about them until they're actually available?

Sometimes a couple weeks ahead of time. Other times just a couple hours.

In the last couple years, has there ever been one get by the leaks and just get announced?

We got a Disney Visa a couple of weeks ago and have already used to to put our deposit down, among other things. Will we get an email or something or is the offer for long-time members only?

maybe, maybe not. Usually DV holders get a 3 day jump on booking offers before they are available to the general public. Its usually posted here before most people get an e-mail from Visa. I don't think I have ever gotten an e-mail about a discount offer before it started; once in awhile later that day.

I've been a DV holder for years and never gotten an email about free dining. I get emails from them but never about a discount. I've found out about them on here.
