Really hoping it does cause we have a chk in date of Oct 6th..I may be able to move it back a day or 2 but could not move it to Oct 2nd at all. Just being bored and really hoping general public offer is later than Oct 2nd..lol a girl can dream cant she.
I sure hope it does we arrive the 8th!

Agreed...I cannot push my dates back, we are arriving the day after our wedding. If it happens, I hope the 6th is included! That's when we check in too. Fingers crossed for *something*, if not FD then a room discount at least, then maybe we could upgrade...

The earliest we can arrive is the 4th, so I'm right there with you. Wish upon a star...

*sigh* I got the Free Dining PIN, unfortunately it's the same one that's been going out and our dates aren't included.

Same for us on the dates. We are going 5-12. Historically I thought we would be "in the window" for free dining. Plus it is going to be my daughters birthday while we are there so we don't want to change dates.

Same here on dates... And I really thought it would be included! Can't move our dates either! Going regardless but any discount would be nice!

Keeping my fingers crossed!

I really REALLY hope there's free dining near the end of October. Doing a split stay at POL:FQ and then BC:CL starting the 18th with the DH and my sister. I'd rather just have it for the BC:CL stay! Good luck everyone!!

Congratulations!!! My husband and I honeymooned at WDW in 2005. You and your hubby will have a wonderful time. We now have a child and will be bringing her in October. We will be there from October 2-9. Hoping for free dining. I hope that all of our dates will be included.

Bah. I'm starting to think that the pixie dust is not coming our way. Two rounds of PINs down and none for us.

Arriving Oct 31. Just talked to a cast member who said likely NO MORE free dining offered, unless fall bookings are way down. More likely to see a percentage off type discount. Not sure what to think/believe. I guess it's wait and see.

That's in line with what the phone CM told me when I called to see if we had a PIN. Offer may not come out if the rooms fill up. I keep reading where it's recommended to book now then call to apply the PIN when it comes out. That's kind of backwards. Why would they offer FD to fill up the rooms when the rooms are full?
