I apologize in advance if this is not the right place but I am new around here!

Am I the only one who is thoroughly frustrated with the free dining and/or 30% offers? I booked our trip in January and actually booked 2 reservations so I could play the odds of getting one of these discounts. We have a res at the Beach Club and Boardwalk Villas for a 2 bedroom.

To date, I have not been able to get either of these offers on my reservations and more recently I cannot get any offers for any rooms during the week of Oct 20th to the 27th.

Has anyone had any luck for these dates? I check multiple times each day and have been since each of them was announced. It feels that although I am within the offer dates, there really arent discounts to be had. Is it BS?

We visit 1-2 times a year for a week each and have never had a problem getting a discount. This year seems odd.

Any feedback?

Just to add to the response you got from montauk...

"yep" is only true if that discount is available. Available is the key word because Disney only has a limited number of discount rooms available. It's a roll of the dice an as you can see from my post above, its one I lost this year even with TWO reservations.

If you check Mousesavers the discounts have been pretty standard really...maybe these weeks are just not included this year? I know we got FDing for October 20th, or are you saying that you didn't want FDing?

We are booked yet but are looking at October 2013. We want to go down with my sister, BIL and my then 5 year old nephew (first time).

We would love a room only discount code for Wilderness Lodge!

This is not particularly surprising on a 2BDR. Keep in mind that discounts are applied based on availability. If the 2BDRs are sold out, then there won't be any discounts. When I booked in Jan I chose BWV (for Dec) because I figured availability there is usually better than BCV. But I knew the odds of availability on a 2BDR were slim no matter where I picked. Thats why I booked in Jan. I got lucky though because there were, surprisingly, Studios available. So I split my reservation to a 1BDR + Studio and ended up saving quite a bit. But if that hadn't been available, i would have kept my 2BDR and paid rack rte. I did get a discount on my AKV 2BDR but only 5%.

As for those particular dates - isn't that Gartner? The annual IT conference fills up the Boardwalk hotels every year. No discounts during that time period. No need for it.

We are hoping to go the second week in October. Maybe we will get some pixie dust.

Thinking of booking a trip tomorrow for October 12-16th. I know its total last minute. It my twins birthday. I got the PIN for the discount, but what is this I hear of free dining? That would save boatloads of money since my twins are now considered adults!

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
