Yay for free dining!!

Just got an email from our Disney TA to say she managed to apply free dining to our Oct/Nov stay at POR RGR!! A huge saving, close to $1000. I guess we have more spending money now.

Have any other Aussies managed to get FD?

I'm so thrilled for you as that is exactly what happened to us on our POR booking last year! Although we had to check in two days earlier than we had planned so had to fly out two days earlier - not a hardship at all as it was 2 mores days at WDW and with free dining

I'm so happy for everyone getting FD and saving some dollars! My TA said she could get it for me if I change from AoA to Pop but I'm really looking forward to the new resort so have decided to stay where I am. Keep your fingers crossed for me that Disney decides to open the LM rooms for FD too!

Free dining here also, it will save us alot of $
Between 3 of us and 9 days at WDW it's certainly decent

Which resorts did you have to switch to and from?

Nope we had to choose 1 or the other resort because of the small window of Free Dining while we are there. We are now staying the whole time at Port Orleans French Quarter and that is okay because we were always looking forward to staying there and we can still visit AKL and take some pics. And with the nearly 2k saving by not staying at AKL and then the probably $150-$200 per day saving of free dining for us, I think I can live with the change
