Cool beans!!! We went in 2005 too and I didn't book until June or July for October. I heard about it on Good Morning America. You are so right. Anything can happen this year, especially with the economy like it is. They may even allow folks to stack discounts ( ). They did offer multiple discounts with bounceback this summer, 30% off of selected rooms (SSR/OKW) along with the free dining!

Thinking of getting a Disney Visa just for the heck of it...we dont use credit cards...but it might be worth it just in case...

Also, what do you need to do or is there anything you can do to increase your chance of getting a PIN? Thanks!!

Watching and waiting...

I'd recommend it... We use the Disney Visa for everything - including DS' tuition... We then pay it off monthly. We do that to accumulate points for Disney Dollars - it's quite helpful. So don't just look at it as a possible way to get free dining (although that is a perk!) look at it as a way to take some extra "cash" with you to WDW.

Do they usually offer the Free Dining to Disney Visa card members first? Has that been the way it was done in the past? I have had a Disney Visa for years and was just curious! Thanks!

Yes, the free DDP has been offered to Disney Visa owners a few days before being offered to the general public. Watch here for the details about when. We usually get the information here on the DIS before hand so you'll know what day to call with your Disney Visa.

My mom has a Disney Visa but I want to use my debit card to put the deposit down, can I use her card, assuming the offer will go out to Disney Visa Card holders, without charging anything to it?

And if I was to book WL for 4 nights instead of 2 right now at rack rate with a one day MYW ticket could I add on free dining when the offer comes out, if it does... without having to re-book it?

You won't have to rebook your hotel reservations....just simply call to add on the free dining and ticket package.

Correct me if I'm wrong. We are taking our first trip in September, so it sounds like it is best to wait until FD is announced then book. We also have Disney Visa so hopefully we will get an announcement before it goes to the general public right? Help please! Been planning over a year and don't want to goof this up.
