Those number of nights quoted on the Disney Visa page or in WDW promos are just for advertising purposes. All free dining proms have a 3 night minimum/14 maximum for booking and require a 2 day base ticket.

Does Disney ever extend the FD dates? I was disappointed to find that our check-in date was not included (especially since it isn't during Columbus Day weekend or fall break periods). I'd be willing to move a day or two to fit in!

Well it can happen and it has happened... but, I certainly can't say you should expect it... more than likely, these are the dates...sometimes they increase early December dates..

What is your current check in date?

10/13. I can move it a few days, but not all the way back to the next date (10/19).

Ouch. Clearly they have carved out those dates because they feel those dates are busy enough with out a promotional offer.

Unless there are a rash of cancellations on those dates, I really wouldn't count on them becoming included.

Free dinning has been extended to Dec. 20. Now those arriving Dec. 14 - Dec. 20 can take advantage of FD. You can book online or by phone. All other dates are the same.

I have never done free dining before, so I have a question.

I'm an AP holder, so I know FD is usually not the way to go. Question is: If I am staying 6 nights, can I just buy a minimum ticket (2 day base) and still get FD for the remaining days?

yes, that's what we are doing. if you don't use the tickets you have to buy with the package at all, they don't expire (the 14 day limit doesn't start until first use) so you can use them when your passes expire. use the tickets for the First day,(of your future trip) then bridge the 2 day ticket to whatever you need for that future trip

arriving the day after fd

we already have a flight booked to arrive on Nov. 30, so I'm missing FD by one day. Has anyone here ever had any luck paying for the extra day, without actually being present? could I book for the 29th, checkin online, but arrive on the morning of the 30th and still get the FD?

On the Tickets with the FD?

When checking in with the FD package, do they combine the ticket as part of your resort card, or can you ask for the actual separate tickets (2day base ticket). I already have tickets that I bought before the price increase so if I book to get FD for next year, I don't want to have to use the 2 days at that time, but save them for later. Does anyone know how to get the tickets separated from the resort card key if you don't plan to use them at that time?
Thanks.

....I may be wrong here, but I was under the impression that Free Dining was until Dec 20, not the 13th....
