Aussies and Disney Pins

We've set up Disney accounts, we've saved offers, we've ordered the DVD from the Aus site, we booked the DDP, we've played around with the maps on the site.................. for months.


Do Aussies qualify for Disney pins or are they sent out only to US residents?

We're gunning for WDW free dining which would make our Nov trip much easier. The US DISboard sections have multiple people doing the free dining pin dance and I'M JEALOUS! I'm starting to wonder whether international guests receive them at all. Can anyone advise?

I've received pins twice, both for accom only at DL though, so yes, we Aussies do qualify.

Have you saved offers on your account? I think thats why I got a couple, it has been ages though since I got one, but maybe it's because I made a booking LOL

we continually go in every couple of weeks and save offers. We've even got a couple of accounts for everyone in the family with email addresses. I've even got accounts with my name at my parents house!

I would just wait! Normally November free dining comes out in August. Last year it was August 8th i wouldn't be too worried if you look on Mousesavers it shows you when the free dining for the public has come out for the past 5 years Hope this helps.

It's rare for International guests to score a PIN - some here will say it happens. We used to do business in the US and 2 years ago I scored a PIN using that address but I have not recieved anything via my Australian address

I tried last year but I never got one. I was however traveling with a person over 60 so got a decent 30% discount on accommodation.
