They are most definitely wrong. I got the pin and you can book for 3 nights. Every FD promo since 2005 has had a 3 night minimum booking requirement.

I just went in through the link in my FD pin email and it will let me book 3 nights at all levels of resorts I looked at.

They moved the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10-Miler Weekend to now have the race on Saturday, Oct. 5th (has been in September in previous years), so that might be one reason why?

YAY!! You got the PIN!!!! Woohoo! Can you now sprinkle the rest of us with some pixie dust, pretty please I am keeping my sanity though going by your wisdom as you were so spot on with the FD pin! I have my fingers crossed that it will drop to a GP deal so that I can get it too. Congrats again on getting this one

Trying not to obsess about the fact that we didn't get a PIN Code. I really wanted the advanced warning if we end up with some sort of offer, because we want to extend our stay if we get a discount. We already have the money set aside for the trip... why not stay longer, right?

But, airline tickets are a pain to move and they need to be booked soon. Maybe there is still some pixie dust left to be shaken out?

Thanks, smitch425, it would be nice! We've done WDW many times but have especially had fun using FD. Going in October because of a meeting elsewhere in FL but aren't 100% on where we'll put the Disney part. Obviously hoping we can work our dates with FD.

Curiosity question otherwise (for you or anyone else who has an opinion on it)... The pin dates people have posted are showing arrivals through 10/2, if I remember correctly, then again 10/18 and on. Then last night someone on one of the boards, can't remember where I saw it, posted a photo of their BB offer, which looked like the open dates for BB were through 10/5 instead, then starting again on Sunday, 10/20 and on. (As long as they were using a Sunday-Saturday calendar. Couldn't see completely clearly.) My leaning is to think that a GP offer would coincide more so with a pin code than BB. Thoughts? Not sure why I'm even asking because we'll just work around it and figure it out either way, but I find myself a little obsessed (like the rest of you). I have found my people. Surprising our kids at our local Rainforest Cafe after school's out!

Thanks! Was just talking to a CM who was pretty darn rude, especially for Disney, and was adamant there wouldn't be FD in October. I guess we'll just see if she's right or not. I definitely believe you can't trust everything a CM says, but she was SO rude about it it does kind of make me doubt a little... Then I go back to the fact that some of them were just saying not even a month ago that there wouldn't be FD at all in 2013, and look where that got them!

Thanks so much!!! I'm hopeful they will release FD to the public... A girl can dream, right?
