Is there anything better than Free Dining and Fastpasses?

So my question, if I call on Mon and they are not sold out, I can just say "I would like free dining added" and they will just add the free dining and subtract the price of the dining plan from our balances??? Or will I have to book two completely new reservations???

Also, what is the phone number to call to do this?? Do I just use the same reservation number I called to make the reservations (407-939-6244) or would I need to call a different number since I already have the reservations??

Thanks for any help.
Yes, if they still have free dining rooms available they will just add the code to your reservation. If there are no Pop rooms still available for the FD promo then you will need to pick another resort that has availability and no, you will not have to rebook if you have to pick another resort. If your current reservation is already paid in full when you add the FD code, then WDW will refund you the difference. You can just call the regular Disney Reservations line to add the code or make any changes.

I may be able to justify a trip if free dining comes in Dec. Now, I just hope Disney won't make cutbacks with the holidays decorations and entertainment, if free dining is offered at those times.

So, who else is looking for free dining for the last quarter of the year?
We are looking to go back in December, we actually got two postcards for the Free Dining Plan w/pin code htis past December and we stayed thru Dec. 22! We stayed in the cabins for the first time and loved them. We are also going in August w/Disney Visa Free Dining offer.

When we call in ourselves to Disney monday at 7am, will we need to give them a code, or just ask to have the FD added on? If we need a code, where will we find that code?

SO EXCITED!!!

Free Dining or Deluxe Upgrade

So with the free dining discount does anyone know the price to upgrade to Deluxe Dining? And is it worth it?

ADR's

So if I am going at the end of September, I can make my ADR's 90 days in advance. If I call 90 days before my vacation starts, can a make ADR's for the entire week that I am there even though it would 91, 92, 93 days before I eat at that particular resturant? Does this make sense? Help!

The only December dates were December 14 - 20. If you checked in by the 20th you could get the free dining offer through the 31st. These emails were random, not for the general public, and the codes were non-transferrable. About two weeks after that Disney Visa sent out a free dining code for their card holders for the same select dates in October, November and December. Those pin codes were not part of the regular Fall Dining promotion and there was no general public fd code offered for any of those dates.
Would love to get one of those emails, lol. We are booked Nov 21--28th this year at Poly for dd's 40th b'day. Free dining would be a real plus. We are getting the free dining in Sept tho. Also going in May but no free dining. Can't be too greedy, lol.
