Give or take a day or two, if FD is released for this timeframe, these dates should be pretty close.
I do hope your dates come true

My family is going nov 12-20 and FD would be a huge blessing!

Lightbulb just went off. We're booked Oct 5 - 12. For our family, a day of RO discount is a slightly better deal than a day of FD. But, that has been assuming that both were offered for the same days. Assuming the dates in this prediction, and a matching RO offer, I'd be able to use the FD for the whole trip, but the RO discount for only a day or two.

Needing to rethink my wish... boy July/August seems a long way away!

This is true, but I would caution against relying too heavily on any predictions based on recent history, if Columbus Day plays any part in how Disney decides when to offer their October discounts. I think fall breaks are more of a factor, but Columbus Day is 10/14 this year. It was 10/8 last year. My dates are 10/5 through 10/13. I'm actually somewhat optimistic that the late Columbus Day this year could possibly mean more of the week we're going could see discounts. But even if FD only goes to 10/5 or 10/6, that would still be late enough for both of us to get it for our trips.

But if RO is a better deal for you than FD, I'd wait as long as possible to see if there are any decent RO deals for those dates.

If your credit is good, it wouldn't be a terrible idea. The card comes with other great perks, as well. You can find out more at www.disneyrewards.com

I'm looking at it now, hmmmm...so since I've already booked my trip and there for wont be using my Disney visa ( assuming I get one) to pay for it, will they still give me the offer early as a rewards member?

They will just need the card number to verify that you have one, and they may require you to put a $200 payment on your reservation with the card (though I've seen posts by a few people today that said they didn't have to actually pay anything with it).

Originally, I was coming the 18th, but decided to add some extra days, and now it seems to be getting more complicated..
Yes, you would have to pay for your food until you checked into the hotel where you had the package. ETA: or, checked in on the day your package starts, even if it is the same hotel.

You are right -it's all just speculation at this point. I do like your thinking on the impact of the later Columbus Day and I'm adopting your optimism.

It's easy to get caught up in the "perfect scenario." In reality, I would be happy with any discount.

Thank-you for the info.

Its great to know I can pick up my tickets early, the day after we arrive and utilize them.
I'm hoping the R0 or even FD does come out on the 18th though cause then it would only be 3 days without a discount.
I can still get my discount for my 2nd reservation though (22nd-27th), so that's a good thing!

You have to not only take into account Columbus Day, but when the corporate conventions are booked and when the golf tournaments are. The Gartner Symposium (which doesn't normally cause black out dates, is being held a week earlier than previous years) is October 6-10, huge motorcycle convention October 16-20 and a plastic surgeons convention October 8-12. Plus huge amounts of schools, especially in the Southeast, are going to have their fall breaks either the week of October 7-11 or October 14-18. Even though Columbus Day/week falls late this year, the second and third weeks are typically blacked out for free dining and Columbus Day is only one factor as to why they black out those dates. Usually, they just simply don't need to fill resorts during that time frame and they probably won't need to fill resort rooms for those dates again this year.

We're going for our Disney honeymoon at the POR from the 21-29. I don't know if any offers will pop up but I hear that chances are fairly good for our dates, traditionally. Even if nothing comes up, I know we're going to have a great time!!!
