Does anyone know what the chances of a room only discount for October are?

So is the general consensus that if a room only discount comes out that it will be for the dates of the recent PIN code for free dining? I sure hope not because our check in date is 10-5 and that ends on 10-2.

I hope not too! We have the same check in and based on the historical there should be something, but starting to get nervous now with the PINs out.

My guess is that there will not be anything offered during that time. It is close to the columbus day holiday and generally they do not offer any discounts leading up to and including the week after columbus day.

The Pin that I received included arrivals as you stated untill 10-2 but also included 10-18 to 10-31 for the rest of October. Leaving out the columbus day weekend. My hope is that there will be Free Dining during the same time as on my PIN. I have my inlaws that want the same deal but Disney would not lets us use it for them.

So is it usual that they have 2 whole black-out weeks in October with no discount at all? We are also checking in on 10/5 and would like a discount of some sort! I guess I'm surprised that they have left half of October (15 days, from 10/3 to 10/17) with no discount. I understand around Columbus day but CD isn't until Oct. 14th, so I would have thought the blackout wouldn't start until the 7th at the earliest.

I agree. I was thinking it would be 2 weeks, but it would go from 10/12-10/25 to surround CD 10/14. I am hoping whatever they make, all us Diser's find a way to a score free dining!!

For the last several years, FD has been blacked out starting on the Friday before Columbus Day, so hopefully they will follow suit for 2013 and extend FD through 10/10.

Concerning to me as well. I've been looking at the current bounceback and the free dining pins, and that two black out is killing me! I thought by booking the week before Columbus Day, we'd be in the clear, but so far, it appears not. I've currently got a AAA discount at POFQ, and it's saving us some money but a good room only or free dining would be even lovelier.

And btw, hi! First time I posted on this thread. Probably should have started with that.

Yes, other than the August dates, most of these dates will probably drop for the general public this summer, probably July.

Yes, for the last 4 years they have blacked out the second and third weeks of October. Highly doubt anything will be available between October 5-17, unfortunately.

Still holding out hope for October 5-12. Last year Columbus Day was much earlier than it is this year (Oct 8, 2012 vs Oct 14, 2013). Based on last year they would extend it until the Thursday before which is the 10th.

We can dream, right?

My husband and I were booked from Oct 10-18 but when we received the FD pin our dates were completely blacked out so we changed our checkin date to Oct 2 in order to use the code. Since oct 3-17 is blacked out on the FD pin I would be surprised if they used any portion of those dates in the general release of FD. But hey I could be wrong

I just got FD added to my 10/26 - 11/2 trip yesterday. Happy Mothers Day to me!! I never got an email with a PIN. I called Thursday night, when I was seeing a lot of people posting about FD pins. I didn't have one attached to my acct. I stalked my email all weekend and still nothing. So for giggles yesterday, I figured what the heck, I called and the CM added it to my trip. Saved us almost $1000 for the QSDP.

I agree with you. 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, unfortunately, they probably won't need to fill resort rooms for those dates again this year.
