This may be a stupid question, asked time and time again, but I am going to ask anyway LOL...

Is FD still offered at the end of August? I have been seeing people talk about December FD but was wondering if they still offer it in August. Any information (speculative or otherwise) would be helpful. Thanks bunches!!

The 2011 August Free Dining offer was actually announced last fall and had to be booked by December 20, 2010.

Everyone is waiting to see if they do a second offer for August 2011. Specuation is that that next general public free dining offer will be for August 13 - October 1 dates and will be released in the next few weeks.. Some are speculating that they might also release October - December fd dates then too. Guess we will all have to wait and see . . . .

Yes, FD is being offered starting 8/14. I just got a card in the mail (forwarded from an old address)....very frustrating for me because I've been waiting for an offer for 4 years and when I finally decide to go ahead and make a booking, I get an offer after the fact (I'm already going spring break)...trip is paid and I can't change.

Oh well, I guess this means I will have to try and go in August as well

What restaurants are not part of free dining? In other words is there a list of restaurants that are part of the dining plan and some maybe that are exempt?

There's a list under the Dining section of WDW.com. But really, the DDP covers almost everything on property - all restaurants in the park and at the resorts (except Victoria & Alberts at GF) and most of the restaurants at DTD. Off the top of my head, the only exclusions that immediately jump to mind are Fulton's Crab House, both Rain Forest Cafes, T-Rex and Blue Zoo. Everything else aren't Disney related.

A $200.00 deposit is required for booking all Disney Magic Your Way Resort Packages, free dining or not.

Question - I'm booked for October through a DVC reservation rental. If free dining becomes available for my time, can I add that to my reservation?

No, you can not take advantage of any Disney discount offers, free dining or otherwise, when you are renting points.

Just one of the reasons rentings points doesn't ever work for us . . . .

Hoping for Free Dining package

According to mousesavers.com historical data, in 2010 the free dining package for December came out July 5th. Hoping for the same this year!
