Be sure to run your numbers. Free dining isn't always the best deal. As a solo AP holder staying in a moderate using the TiW card is a much better deal than free dining, especially since I'm using a 35% off bounceback deal for my room Nov 26th-Dec 4th. I'm also going to be there Sept 10-18th during the free dining period, but will again being using a 35% off bounceback deal that easily beat free dining.
I am already paying rack price for the room and paying for the dining and have the tickets applied too. I am staying in Wilderness Lodge and staying for 10 nights so every little bit would help, lol.

I am using Dreams Unlimited and will email my planner with this information.

Thanks so much everyone.

I have a really hard time believing that Disney would go cold turkey on discounts like that. I know they're trying to push the idea that the economy has recovered enough to bear the increases, but most of us in the real world know that's not the case. I see them basically continuing along as they can with increased rack rates, but the same old discounts as always.

please say it ain't so. I'm going nov 7-nov 14 POFQ. Already had free QSDP but this would have been much better. Can't move dates- darn airline change fees. Oh well.

I agree. I think that they'll have to do something. They can talk all they want (and the CMs I talk to are very mum on the subject of discounts now) but the truth is, they'll have to offer something.

I'm hoping, too. I'll be in Charlotte, NC on Wednesday for a convention, sitting in my hotel room on hold with Disney... We arrive December 16, so I hope we'll be covered for our whole trip...We don't have any discount at this point, so free dining would be wonderful!!!

Again, this remains to be seen, but I have seen this very same offer discussed on reputable places other than the DIS. I tend to think it is valid one.

FD would have saved us aprox. $150 over the 20% room discount we are now booked with but unfortunately our dates are blacked out. I will live , just slightly disappointed

You'd have to do 2 seperate reservations. That's what we're doing. The FD starts 10/2 so our package w/ the FD will be 10/2-10/12. But we will have a room only reservation for 10/1.

Yeah, it's an interesting post to determine if it is true or not. It is fairly specific for a "fake" post, and info makes sense. The dates make a lot of sense to me, dates that someone would've had to put some thought into to fake.

OP, can you give us a small hint as to where/how you got this information? (Perhaps a TA.)

Where are you going to stay? I want to stay somewhere new but have to wait to see if we can swing it.

The blackout dates exactly match the ones I got from a room-only pin back in February before we knew we were going. I hope it's true anyway!

my ta told me the date for the new promo was 8/13 and that she could not tell what it was or she could get fired, but maybe the visa card customers will be able to book on 8/3 and the general public will be 8/13 or the monday following. I am really hoping that it comes out the 8/3rd because the 8/13th i will be at watkins glen race way at the track and not near a computer or "quiet" phone (those race cars are really loud). Really need free dining.... for a trip for my son and I for holloween
