I'd like to know the answer to this also.

Never mind. I reread the offer and the offer comes out August 3 for October booings. My mistake. I jumped at the chance for free dining ....Oh well.

The 30th and the 1st have both been excluded from last few -and possibly upcoming- release of FD and I, too, dont understand why. We've always checked in on a Sat and was hoping to do the same this year. However, I'll take a Thurs (9/29) over nothing at all.

Maybe 9/30 and 10/1 were not covered because of the 40th anniversary?
This is our FD dates as well.

The 40th anniversary is the only reason I can think of why they blocked out these 2 dates. Yet, the current room-only offer goes up to Oct 1 and even my 40% pin covered it...so who knows.

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 . . . .
Yes, I want to hear from Knox .... he was so right on last year.

So If I check in on 11/18, can I get free dining (with the upgrade to deluxe) for my entire visit?

I am not getting my hopes up too high yet. But, I would like some opinions.
We're currently booked at ASMu in a Family Suite. We want the DxDDP. Should we just stay at ASMu & pay the bigger difference & keep the extra room? Or should I "upgrade" to POR & pay a smaller difference for the upgrade to DxDDP? Based on the prices, it looks like it'd be about $1500 to go from the Free QSDP to DxDDP. Still not a bad price for a family of 5 eating for 7 nights. $220 per day, $44 per person, so that's only $14+change per meal.

But, WWYD?

What's the difference as far as room charges go? And what kind of savings is it if you start and regular and upgrade to deluxe?

In past offers, no, unfortunately you cannot. For some reason it doesn't allow you to go to Quick Service when staying at a mod or deluxe. Which is unfortunate for some guests.

Disney usually updates their system closer to when the phone lines open...my guess to keep it fair for everyone...so it usually causes a bogdown online with everyone refreshing!! LOL

Thank you! I wasn't sure.

Now I have to think about whether I should book a new reservation online when free dining is released, or whether I should call and wait on hold to amend my current reservation.

ASMu, family suite w/ 7 day park hoppers w/ FQSDDP= $3620.08
ASMu, family suite w/ 7 day park hoppers upgraded to DxDDP= $5380.08
So that adds $1760. (More than my math going off of the pp's price diff. in QS, Reg & Dx.

POR, AB room w/ 7 day park hoppers w/ FDDP = $ 3118.38
POR, AB room w/ 7 day park hoppers upgraded to DxDDP = $ 4438.38
That adds $1320 from DDP to DxDDP.

Difference in POR vs. ASMu = $941.70.
Is the extra room & bathroom worth that much??
