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
Or quite possibly, looking at 2 different promos.. A free dining announced next week. New room-only discounts announced in mid-August.

Well I certainly hope this is true. Right now I am booked at POFQ with free QSD that I upgraded to DDP so if it is true then my package should go down by about $300. I am going to give this guy the benefit of the doubt. Historically discounts have not been released on a Wednesday so if this guy was just trying to pull our leg I figure he would at least put a date on there other than a Wednesday date. I say lets all think positive that this is just a nice fellow diser who came into some information and decided to pass it along!

And just when we decided to go ahead and keep our current September ressies LOL I wonder if we swapped dates could we exchange our MNSSHP tickets for another date as well since we already purchased those? Ugghh, but that would mean redoing all our ADRs and stuff....ugghh, I don't think it's worth it just for a few degrees of cooler weather.

If we don't do the parks on Saturday, it will have an impact on other days during the week (we were planning on going to Wishes that night - since they are not as many shows due to MNSSHP).

The discount would have been nice, but I don't think we want to spend our first day at the resort.
I wouldn't give on it if the dates are correct. I know there was some way to get tickets early from a package, you should be able to get that info from someone more knowledgeable on here. Even if you can't do that as a last resort you could buy a set of one day tickets. Depending on how many people are in your group, this would probably still be cheaper then giving up on Free Dining. But I really think there is a way to get your tickets early.

I see them basically continuing along as they can with increased rack rates, but the same old discounts as always.
I absolutely agree. I haven't believed a word of what they said all year. Maybe they were hoping a certain (non-DIS) segment of the population would fall for it and not keep checking?

We're arriving 12/10 too and will do the same thing. I'm sure there's a way to get tickets early. I might need to find out!

Yep! that's what I've been planning all along. Usually you can get a hint of the offer dates to follow based on what others have had via PIN code.

Smile My friends this is correct

My friends this is tottaly true, you can do the happy dance NOW.
To the op that make a question about the photobook, nope not photobook purchase will be needed. only at least 3 days rack rate and the park tickets and you will get QSDP at Values and DDP at moderates, de luxe and villas, you can upgrade your QSDP for 13 a day per adult, no cost for childs.
I imagine before post the information that some dissers will ask about the veracity of this new, and I can assure that this is true, only wait a couple of days and you will return to this post and say yes Danny25 was correct . Have a Magical weekend

And now I'm depressed. How unlucky that we chose the 3rd week of October. I thought for sure that by now they would have UN blacked out my week. Ugh. I'm just sick. We have a party if 6, so free dining would have been fantastic. Boy I
sure wish we couldchange our dates.

on room discounts? I know I saw PIN floating around with covered weeks starting 10/10/11. Does your insider have any info on possible room discounts?

We will be at POP Oct.14-23 and paying OOP for the QSDP. I am hoping that maybe some people will switch dates to take part in the promotion and maybe we'll have lower crowds. We can still hope for room discounts, too. It is still early enough to have some hope.

If that were the case, if you booked the free dining and then a room discount came out, could you switch to the newer one if it is a better deal (assuming availability)?

Our check-in date is currently Nov 5th. Historically, would that mean that we get FD the whole trip? Do we have to check-in on the 4th instead? Thanks!
