Question Free dining 2014

We've just booked our Halloween trip for next year and want to book our resort but there's no free dining on offer. We've never been in October before but I know they've had free dining at this time in the past. Can anyone tell me please if it's likely to become available and, if so, is it a matter of checking every week to find out when it becomes available for October? Many thanks in advance.

They have been cutting back dates and increasing prices last couple of years, never say never but there is almost zero chance it will return again for 2014 now, it was available to book from April til Nov.

It's possible you might get it cheaper booked through a US TA with either free dining or a room discount.

Otherwise, we found Expedia the cheapest on a room only deal, with good Cashback offers too (10% when we last booked).

It was available earlier in the year, I'm an early planner due to Dh's disability and we booked in May for Sept/Oct next year and we got it .

Thank you very much. Could you suggest some US travel agents please, flortlebap?
Expedia have it for nearly £400 cheaper than Disney so that was a great tip.

Dreams are amazing!

We booked a last min trip a few months before we went with dreams and they got us free dining!
They will check constantly for you and apply the discount when one becomes available! They almost always do a US free dine around October.
