We're English and over here they are offering free dining for all of next year if you book this year. But I guess we probably have different offers running as I've seen several people on here saying they are waiting for free dining to be announced.

Maybe this means they will be opening it up to the U.S. I sure hope so. Do you remember when it was first offered to you?

We only started thinking about the trip last month so not sure, but it was in the holiday brouchure and the t&c's indicate that it's been running since the start of 2011 and we needed to book before November 2011 to get the deal.
It's if you book a moderate hotel you get the Counter Service Dining Plan or if you book a deluxe you get the Standard Dining Plan...although we booked a moderate (POR) and have paid the difference to upgrade to the Standard Dining Plan.

Thank you for answering my question. I do hope you have a great time planning and an even better time on your trip.

You can never plan to early. Its the planning that keeps me sane while waiting on the trip. Well........there are some people that might tell you that I'm not exactly sane any time. But that's a whole other thread.

Ahh. Hopefully that means they will announce it here as well. I am a little worried that they wont have free dining this fall as they do every year because the free dining for this fall was extended so much. I would hate to have to pay OOP for dining

DH doesn't care about that stuff. He'll wear almost anything I get him, and he knows the kids will love if we all match one day.

I only realised this morning that they only have one of the waterparks open between October and March, bit sad now as was really looking forward to both of them!

I'm thinking about seeing if I can get my DH to do this one day. But it is just the two of us.

It seems that I read somewhere that one is closed for maintenance. Not sure though.

I was wondering this myself because we've never been to the water parks at Disney and it would have been great to go. Which one is it that is still open?

I don't think they've announced for 2012 as yet, but apparently they are closing Blizzard Beach from 30th of October for 3 months, then it's reopening and Typhoon Lagoon is closing for 3 months.

We'll be going in November now as well. We are going to be at WDW from 11/12-11/17, are planning at staying at the FWC.
This trip has made so many changes already. The original idea was to go in November for our oldest DS's 15th bday. I was in the hospital with him for a week before I had an emergency c-section with him at 32 weeks. When they would tell me to "calm down" I would think about one day taking him to WDW. I can think of no better place to celebrate his 15th bday. Then we moved it to May, and I made several resort changes after booking it. Tomorrow I'm going to call and change it back to November. The plan is to hurry and get to WDW to spend the week before Thanksgiving there. Then slowly come home and see some other things in FL and on the way home.
Hopefully, they will have free dining for Nov 2012 and we can upgrade it to the DlxDDP.

I think a lot of us are hoping for the free dining I'll add you to the front page and hopefully you'll be joining us in November for sure!
