Bummer!! I just booked our hotel today. Have had airfare for a while. Anyway our dates are during the Peter Pan closure. We would only rude it once or twice on our trip, but we will still miss it!

Peter Pan is a favorite. i am so sad we'll miss it. HOWEVER, that attraction is in serious need of some refurb love. i'll appreciate seeing it all freshened up on our next trip.

I feel the same way, I am pretty devastated. It is one of my favorites and I'm going with my parents in October and they haven't been in about 20 years and they have very fond memories of that ride

Awh, Peter Pan is one of my all time favorites and I was talking it up with the kiddos too! Just when I was happy that we booked October and not September... (because the Jungle Cruise is down in September, that would have been TRAGIC if we missed that! ), now I'm a little sad. Still many other great attractions, but no more Snow White, Mr. Toad, and a down Peter Pan... where did the FL I remember go?

I'm hoping for free dining but would be o.k. with a room discount too.
I've called a few times and asked about a pin but no luck so far.
Wow. Great!! We will be there from Oct 2-9. We can't wait. This will be our 4 year olds first time and our first MNSSHP too. But like yourself; we will be happy for any discount. Lots of pixie dust to all of us!

I used a FD PIN to re-book for October. I had a room-only reservation for POP, but wanted the regular dining plan vs QS so I upgraded to a moderate. I was told POFQ was not available and my only choices were CSR and CBR. I ended up booking CSR (where I stayed last year). Anybody else been told some resorts we not participating? I had heard the LM rooms at AoA were not part of it, but thought I had heard of others booking POR and POFQ.

I don't think its because they aren't participating. They probably just don't have any free dining rooms left. They only block off a certain number of rooms for PIN offers. If the offer goes public, they will open more up.

Also, you CAN get the regular dining plan at the values. You would just have to pay the difference between quick service and regular dining for each person in the room. I have 3 rooms at pop with the regular dining plan. Even paying the difference was cheaper for us than a mod would have been but I'm sure that depends on the number of people and rooms booked.

Okay, it's July. When do you think we might hear about discounts?

We are going from October 19-27th. What do you think the odds are that we'll wind up with no discount at all - paying rack rate for everything? It's what I've budgeted for, but I would really like to see the cost come down...

I've been hearing it will be late July or early August, lately. Sounds like torture.

Luckily I ended up getting a PIN last week. I highly suggest calling and seeing if you have a PIN. I never received one via mail or email. But, I called and there was one attached to my address.

Sorry about the silly question...is this PIN thing just for Free Dining or can you choose between the dining or a discount room? Would rather have the room discount.

I'm trying to get our small family of 3 to go Oct 17-21 at a reasonable price but right now its not there yet. I'm glad to read there havent really been much news on specials/disocunts for October yet. I'll keep looking out and checking here - you DIS-ers know everything! Thanks!

PIN right now is just for free dining. I'd watch your date of Oct 17th, the current PIN is the 18th, so you'd need to do a split stay to get the free dining with the PIN or if they stay with the same dates for the General Public offer.
