I'm waiting. Last year FD for February was released in August, so I'm hoping it won't be as late as the Fall this year either.

1) prices for packages for that time frame just came out today
2) Last year package prices came out earlier and they didn't offer fd until Aug. Hoping it's offered Aug. or earlier this year!

I'm waiting. But for some reason I've gotten so many pin codes this summer for the fall free dining (I NEVER do!), so I'm hoping I get one early for the winter free dining.

I booked now to secure the room i wanted. I usually do, then call to apply it. Disney is awesome about applying discounts to packages when they become available.
And my god I hope they give us one... cause OUCH!!lol

If I book a package now and they come out with Free Dining later, can I still call and they'll give me that discount?

Also can dates be changed by a day here or there - of course subject to that category room availability?

Or once we book, whatever date/package we select is what we're locked into?

Yes, and yes, depending on availability. There's always a chance you might have to change resorts or "view" preference.

Newbie - first question

How will these discounts be announced? Do I have to have a Disney Visa?

I've always heard about it here, on the Disboards, first.
Sometimes the sale breaks a few days early for Disney Visa holders, but the main part of the sale is for the general public.

If a person has to change resorts in order to take advantage of a discount will the ADR's they made under the previous reservation carry over?

yes. I changed resorts last trip, after making ADRs, no problem.
I think those are more tied to your phone #.
But I would ask the CM when you call also.

Well the good news is they had the room and view available we were looking for so I grabbed it -- now I have to pray pixie dust comes our way in form of a pin or free dining to bring that cost down.

Sitting and waiting for either FD or a military discount for our Feb trip. Keeping my fingers crossed. Good luck everyone!

Ditto! Reserved WL package for late Jan/early Feb. At least I can make ADRs now. Whew! Now, I just wait for a deal. We've had good luck every other year, so here's hoping.

I called the Dolphin yesterday to see if any better rates have been released for my President's Week trip. I was told that they anticipate a lowering of the teacher rates which were released really high and to check back in the next two weeks. I'm hoping I can get something that is $30-$50 cheaper per night than my current rate. Fingers crossed!
