Does this mean if my check in day is Nov 13, and we are leaving Nov 18 that I could get free dining for the duration of the trip or just the days listed? Was there a pin associated with this?

Thanks!

You would get free dining for the duration of the trip

However, this offer isn't released to the public yet, so you have to wait until it is or get a pin offer in the email.

Let's be clear, this offer is a PIN offer, not a GP offer. Don't want anyone to get their hopes up. The CM I spoke with this morning said that it should go public at some point, but not for awhile.

Thanksgiving is Nov. 22, not Nov. 29. Wasn't sure if you knew that or not.

BUT you have to arrive on a FD day so ppl already in the park wouldnt be able to use the FD PIN but ppl arriving after Thanksgiving would take advantage and historically the week after isnt as busy as the week of

split reservations for the remainder of their stay.

(this is awesome and really different from past years_ i guess i will wait til its announced to the GP.

im trying to plan what dates we want to go next year. with thanksgiving so late next year it kinda throws a wrench into the works

ok I gotcha. I guess if most ppl leave the 24th or 25th and FD comesout the 23rd or 24th-they really cant do a split stay if you have to stay 3,4 or 5 nights and buy a 2 or 3 day ticket. Alot of ppl come for the whole week before Thanksgiving and are wrapping up their vaca's the weekend after. Maybe Disney thinks this works.... I know usually FD is offered the sat or sun after Thanksgiving but never the friday

They could do a split stay, but it would likely require purchasing two sets of tickets. You can only get package tickets up to 3 days early, so those going for the whole week of Thanksgiving would have to buy two sets of tickets and only get free dining for a couple of days. Not really a good option for most.

I got this email yesterday but am not being allowed to use it. Some glitch sent the email out without the PIN number in the email. So disappointed. On
The phone with guest services now.


I got it. It took a 35 minute call but Guest Services said the email was sent out before the reservation clerks were made aware of the deal.
