"Historically" when they have the late summer early fall FD that week has been included -- but no one can answer that for sure because
Disney hasn't released the FD offer yet -- but everyone here is keeping their fingers crossed and hoping -- that is the week I am going also

Someone in the resort discount forum posted in the September 2013 thread that they had jnside info that FD would be from September 2-25. This sound a bit fishy to you guys? Cause it sure does to me. I would find it odd that the last week of August would be excluded and begin on Labor Day. This poster has seven posts too.

Just pointing it out. Sure we could all be way off if Disney decides to throw us a curve, but that would mean a large chunk of dates not discounted and beginning this one on a holiday.

That is odd, especially considering that the bounceback offer included the last 2 weeks of August. We've been going in the last week of August for FD since 2009, so it would seem odd for Disney to shave that week off of the deal all of a sudden.

Yes and even more odd that this is coming from only one source and from Argentina. Generally many of us will hear on or about the same time.

You're both just trig to help so view it as that and back off of each other.

Also - it might be a good idea that a mod make a thread dedicated to Free DDP that contains NO chatter and only is updated with DDP updates (by a mod if need be) so that those subscribed don't have to read through 4 pages of discussion (and arguing) a day to see that nothing came out. ?? Is this possible?

That's just my two cents!!
I really wanted to book a bounce back when we were there for FD last September but our offer was awful, 5% off Values!?! My DH couldn't believe they'd even put that offer in the room and make a big deal over it. So wish we would have had a FC bounce back!

I know everyone goes by historical data, and really what else is there for us to go by? The predictions (most coming from historical data or hearsay) of CMs, TAs, Bloggers and random Disney fans? Sure we all love to read it and see how close they will be, but I think most of us know that Disney can totally change things at any time. I seriously doubt someone from Argentina who has 7 posts is likely to have inside information, but who knows his guess is as good as the next.

Anyway I will keep reading and keep hoping for those going in August thru September that it does come out and the dates are better than or match the bounceback, but always remember there really is no way to tell until an official announcement is made. Fingers crossed that will be soon. Then I can start hoping for my discount to be good in mid November. Free dining is what I hope for. I know there will be some discount, but some of them released this year have been quite sad compared to free dining.

I am so glad I wasn't the only one questioning it that's why I thought maybe just maybe this is a South America offer.. You know how UK gets different offers then us. Then i went to bed and thought wait a min! Disney doesn't let us TA know ahead of the public of any discounts! I got up looked at the calendar to see when Labor Day was and I just don't see them STARTING it on a holiday.. You never know but.. I sure wish Disney would stop make us wait tho I have clients who will cancel if FD doesn't come out and I need to know if I can't count on those sales as well as for my own trip!

That seems to be what they have been offering. We always upgrade our quick service plan to regular dining; all you have to do is pay the difference.

They just seem to call it something else.... the dining plus plan seems to me to be the one we used back in the early 2000's.
