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.
Yes, you should be able to pick the tickets up to 3 days early.

There is a sticky on the theme parks attractions and strategies board that explains everything you need to know about tickets. I have included the link regarding the early pick up of tickets associated with a package. It is discussed in Section I.

So I'm a but surprised that we still haven't seen this rumor repeated in any of the usual sources... Right now, I'd still say this rumor is credible. But if it is true, I'd expect to see the various Disney blogs repeating similar information shortly.

Not sure of what I want to do. I am currently booked for the first week of december, solo trip. I was thinking of moving it closer to the week before Thanksgiving. Given the fact that it will only be me I wouldn't use the dining plan just for myself- too much food. I would still like a room discount at that time. Anything is possible though.

These are my dates too. I am currently booked with the free park hopper and waterpark pin. I am a little disappointed with the blackout dates too.

I have my dining, airfare, and other reservations made and so far "Touring Plans" have indicated really low crowd levels for this week.

I have booked a room at Buena Vista Suites with a Mousesavers discount (go, Mousavers! go, Mousesavers!....sorry....I need a little joy this morning). It's at an awesome rate...basically $76 a night rather than the $216.38 per night that I would have paid at POR. I think my hubby is totally devastated....he was really hoping to stay at POR. And I was, too, but it's just not economically responsible for me to pay rack rate and get nothing byt EMHs for it. And I was only planning on using the EMH, at most, 3 days during our trip and it probably would have been more like 2.

Now, hubby is saying we can maybe go to Universal. I think I might do that....and cut a day off my Disney tickets. I'm probably going to go back to staying off site. It worked perfect before and it will be fine now.

I know what you mean. I always intended to stay off, then just in the last two week, seriously thought about staying on. FD for us would have been a definite on, and I'm a little disappointed. But, I can't spend another $400 for less space, and we aren't doing EMH at all. *sigh*

My positive take on it - my week should still be light on traffic, since everyone will be waiting for FD the day we leave!

OK, well if I can do this....maybe Disney still has my business. Maybe. BUt I'm already re-working what days I'm going to be in which parks (because I wouldn't stay on site 10/20-10/22).

It's going to be a wait and see. It does make me feel better than a PP called Disney and these codes are from 2007. It makes me breathe a little easier today.

That's what I'm thinking, too!! And if hubby has his way and we spend a day or two at Universal.....we won't have to deal with the lines of the people coming for FD the week of 1/23!

I don't think the CM's on the phone know. They might be using an old code. But the dates are spot on for the 2011 calendar. And I might be wrong, but in 07, I don't think they did the values as quick service.

I think even if the OP's codes and dates are wrong, as far as release goes, we're still going to see fall discounts of some sort. And of course calling before the 3rd won't work - the CMs wouldn't tell you even if the code was valid. Now if you call on the 3rd and they haven't heard of it or don't have a discount then you can feel free to string the OP up by their toes

In 2007 the values were for sit down dining. I'm really hoping this guy isn't toying with everyone's emotions here. I'm waiting for free dining, but nowhere else has this same rumor or information. Want to be happy by the information but I'm just not completely convinced this is on the up-and-up. Will I be happy to eat crow on Wednesday if the info is true....you betcha!

Keeping my fingers crossed that this is true!

When they say the code is valid staring 8/3...is that after a certain time on Wednesday (i.e. after 9:00 am..) or is it effective in the wee hours of the morning (1:00 am)?

We're also there that same week. And it does look like crowd numbers are low (same as they are the rest of the month). I'm surprised this would be blacked out and not Halloween week. The only thing I can think of is the convention going on at the Boardwalk hotels...but surely they already have food offered??

Oh well, I guess we'll see in the next couple of weeks!

Question Question

We've done Free Dinning for years and love it,but I am trying to help another family planning their first trip to WDW and have a question.They are booked to arrive on Nov 19th (which looks like they can get free dinning) at a Value resort.How much would it cost for them not to take the QS and go to either with the regular or other dinning plan (we always get the regular free from the resort we stay at) and I know that if you don't take the free dinning for the resort you stay at,you can pay the difference and get one of the other dinning plans.Need to run some figures for them,but since they shouldn't have to pay full price to up grade their dinning,I need some prices.Thanks.

Is there anything better than Free Dining and Fastpasses?

There was no such thing as Quick Service Dining in 2007.

But, really, I would take this as a big rumor until Knox or on of the other credible Mods comes along to confirm this offer. There are also a number of TAs on this board and I haven't seen any of them post yet either. I do think there will be a free dining offer, but I think everyone needs to wait for a bit more confirmation before they completely get their hopes up about these dates or this release date.

Also, Disney Visa holders have gotten every single Free Dining offer since 2005 3 days before the general public, so until there's some confirmation of the Disney Visa offer, I'm staying skeptical of these dates. I have a WDW trip planning service and I'm not going to share these dates with my customers just yet . . . .
