You have to physically check in on 1st day. We've thought about having one of us fly in a day early when the others can't travel that day. We'd then have the FD for the trip and have extra credits to use towards a signature dining or dinner show later in the week.

Last year I had booked Friday - Saturday. I would have been getting in late, but was held up in terrible traffic in Atlanta, and did not make it until Saturday morning very early. They let me check in at that time for my Friday reservation since I had paid, etc. I thought about doing this planned now, for 2 reasons. To get the discount associated with travel on that day, and also it is worth it to me to pay a nights rate to be able to check in before 3:00. Wouldn't that also work for your situation?

When do they usually announce the dates for fall free dining. We are going with 10 people and REALLY need free dining to afford the trip. Hope for Novemeber, but will go in October if needed.

In 2012, Disney World had to different free dine offers.

1) First one you had to book between 3/5/12-5/18/12, for stays between 8/25-9/27/12

2) The second one you had to book between 7/12-9/29/12 for travel on select dates between 9/30-12/13/12.

Hope that helps and good luck this year!

I have a question. If I have already booked for 9/6 to 9/14 & a free dining discount does release can I take advantage of it? I am also a disney visa card holder. Also how does it work if we have ddp and it is for qsdp? Do they just have you pay the difference?

As long as they have availability under the promotion for the room type you have booked, then you can call to have the discount applied. If they offer QSDP, you would just pay the difference between the two plans. If you have placed at least $200 toward your package with your Disney Visa, then you can call the day the deal is released for Visa holders without making an additional payment that day. If you paid with some other form of payment, then you can call that day and put $200 toward your balance with the Disney Visa to take advantage of the offer. If your room type/resort has no availability under the promotion, you can switch to one that is available or choose not to use the discount. Good luck!

Usually, yes, but not very many. They sell out pretty quickly.

If you are booked with a room discount using a bounce-back offer, and free dining comes out for that timeframe, do you have to give up the BB discount in order to get the free dining?

Yes. FD requires a full price room and ticket package. Disney does not allow the stacking of discounts. You always need to do the math to see which is the better deal.
