I totally just got excited when I opened my email to find one from Disney Visa titled "Early cardmember access, July 17th!". Buuuuuut it was some discount for the Disney Store. Way to get my hopes up, you sneaky Disney people!

This is my family. I found it, all on my own. Is little, and broken, but still good. Yeah, still good.

New to the forum

Ok this is my first post ever on a board, so please forgive me if I'm doing it all wrong. I booked my families first ever Disney Vacation for 10/13-10/19 at POP. I am seeing all the buzz about free dining offers and pins? So my first question is : what is a pin code? 2. How do I get one (if i need it!) 3. Will there be a free dining offer for my dates?

Is there any other advice anyone can offer me to save $$! I'm on a tight budget, and it took a lot of scraping and saving to book this trip so any advice helps. Thanks guys

Welcome to the DIS!

A PIN code is a person/address specific discount code (15 digits) that Disney sends out via e-mail and snail mail. No one knows the mystery of who they are sent to. Anyone who has an account with Disney could receive one and it can be used to back up to 3 rooms for people traveling at the same time.

The current Free Dining PIN dates are:

For arrivals most nights 8/25/ to 10/2/13,
10/18 to10/31/13, 11/11/to 11/23/13,
11/30 to 12/4/13 and 12/15 to 12/22/13

Your week (Columbus Day) has historically been blacked out for Free Dining. Maybe a room only discount?

There may be a General Public offer coming soon so keep checking here, there are always lots of postings when a discount offer is released.

Thanks!

Figures my week would be blacked out! A room discount would be nice though instead, although I'm sure my savings wouldn't be as much. I'll keep my eye out for news. Thanks for your help!

Here we are another Monday with no information. Not that I expected it. As I said, I basically am convinced August, if at all. But I really just want to know!!!! Repetitive, I know, but just skip my posts if you are getting bored with them.

I just saw what was posted on "Your First Visit" it looks like a REALLY good chance there will be free dining after September. He has a source that has never been wrong yet telling him it will be coming out for South America and Europe on August 1st and he said US deals usually follow! Woohoo!!!

Ugghhh, August? I guess better late than never but that puts me only 2 weeks out of my 45 day window so I guess I better be prepared to pay in full soon after booking.

Edited: I just checked and the speculated dates are:

September 29 to October 2, 2013
October 18 to November 2, 2013
November 11 to November 23, 2013
December 12 to December 22, 2013

Ugghhh, we wanted to check in on September 28th. So I guess we either knock a day off of our trip or do a double booking. How difficult is a double booking? We have plans for a park on the 29th, so if we booked a room only on the 28th then the package on the 29th, do they make us move rooms...etc? Seems like a hassle but I don't want to miss our first park day because we're moving rooms.

Where did you find these speculated dates? They are different from the ones that have been linked to the current pin. My dates are no longer here, so it's making me nervous!! 11/30 - 12/8....POFQ.
