Historically we have had good luck with discounting for the week following the marathon. I can only hope this year is no different.

I tried to book FD with check-in 12/20 (which is the last day of FD) and as I could see FD was applied to the entire trip... But I didn'thave more than two seconds to try it... So I may have been too fast, and i might be wrong...

My fd understanding is that you have to have a check in falling within the fd dates and if u do, for the next 14 days of your trip I would get the fd. From being on these boards it seems what ppl do say for example fd starts on the 9th and their vacation at wdw is for the 6-13 for arguments sake you would have to check out on the 9th and check in again - in this case u would pay for dining 6-8 then get the fd from 9 until end of stay.

Marathon pricing is 11, 12, 13. I don't believe they'll be included.
MLK falls a week later in 2013. Last year it was 1/16. Weekend before and day of, not included, nor the week after.
2013, MLK is 1/21. SOOOOO...my guess is, no fd on 1/18-1/25.

Who knows. There's a big gap there, so maybe the 22-26 will be included.
I believe they don't include the 1st. week of Feb. because of cheerleading competitions. That's just my guess.
Many DIS Veterans (of whom I highly regard their opinions) are predicting that the Friday before MLK will be blacked out.

A blog I follow: ****************************************/2011/08/free-dining-is-out-for-fall-2011-and.html says that the Friday before MLK (1/13/12) was included. It says "updated," so I was thinking that those dates were added on later after the initial FD offer?

I care because my dates are 1/18-1/26/13.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Do I just have bad info?

Perhaps she was misinformed or maybe this has changed for 2013? You may want to call yourself to verify.

As long as your CHECK-IN falls withing free dining, your rest of your trip will be free dining. If your check-in falls before free dining, you have to either do a room only for the nights in question or change your check in dates.

Hard to say. Dates have definitely changed over the last two years. We can hope, right?

Just booked for marathon weekend

subbing to this thread to keep an eye on what kind of discounts we can get! My fiance, our friend and I are booked in a Junior Suite at CSR for marathon weekend - we needed the extra room, or else we'd be at BC/YC. Oh well, maybe next year!

Whaat? so according to them discounts will first be released in the end of September??
I'm glad that the CM on the phone often are misinformed and very often gives incorrect answers.... I'm too curios to wait! Even though I have given up on planning acvording to possible discounts..
But don't you DISers think it is very unlikely that promotions will come out that late? Historically January discount have been released in the first half of August, right?

From what I can gather last year the first January discounts came out on 9/30 so we could have a while to go. :-(

Oh no... But! I think that FD was released 8/3 last year and 8/16 in 2011 - according to mousesavers, but I could be reading it wrong?
But you are right about 9/30, because that was the room-only for Disney Visa cardholders! Maybe discounts for Disney Visa and AP holders are released later than room-only and FD for 'generel public'? Or FD comes out before room-only discounts? anyways... I'm hoping the promotions will be released soon :D

I expect FD will be announced sometime in the next two weeks (i.e this week or the next). I would be very surprised if it was delayed to September.
