That's just my two cents!!
This is what we are doing. We were there last Sept but didn't decide until Feb to go back. We should have booked the bounce back but we did not. We won't make that mistake again.

^^^ I agree. If they offer I'm booking. Cause this waiting around is terrible. This way it will be done deal. And we can always cancel or change it up of needed.

For those of you who have guessed the 4/25 date is that the general public date or the visa date? I still realize this is totally just a guess but you guys know more that me as this is only my 3rd trip as a mom on a budget and the first time we went in 2009 we paid for dining and in 2011 we got free dining but were so in-experienced we didn't know how great of a deal it was. Now in 2013 I am spoiled and am expecting FD but I am booked at the campsites and if FD is offered I need to change to another resort unless they decide to (by some miracle) include the campsites. I have a business trip all next week out of the country with limited internet access and I am terrified I am going to miss it!

I would say it would be the Visa date with GP following in a few days.

I didn't see if anyone posted this yet, but Liberty Travel is offering free QS dining at values & moderates for dates in June. I think this is a decent sign that Disney itself will be offering some form of FD this summer. (Hopefully so, as we've booked plane tickets and will be going September 2-9, FD or not! A discount would be nice, though!)

Read the fine print.

Conditions Apply: Valid on new bookings only. 4-night minimum stay required. Offer valid for a family of four. Family of four defined as 2 adults & 2 children; 1 adult & 3 children; 2 adults & 1 child, 1 adult & 1 child; 1 adult. Guests must be 17 years of age or under to be considered a child. Valid on bookings that are deposited or paid in full at time of booking only. Valid for travel 6/13-8/14/13. Must be booked by 4/19/13 or while supplies last. Offer based on availability and could expire at any time. Customer must purchase a minimum 4-night stay at any Walt Disney World® Resort hotel and a minimum 2-day Quick Service Dining Plan. Liberty Travel will then fund the additional two days of Quick Service Dining. Maximum two days of free Quick Service Dining per booking.


So NOT Free dining, just a way to get people to book.

We haven't been for FD since 2010. Really hoping its offered this year. I know many choose to book packages with the hopes of adding on FD when it comes out. Just curious if this is an actual advantage or just a perceived advantage. If I booked ahead at POR (our resort of choice) and FD does come out, don't I still have to call before availability for FD at POR is used up. I always thought there was a limited number of rooms with FD. Any advice based on personal experience would be appreciated.

Hey, two days of a free DP is better than zero days of free DP! Anyway, I wasn't saying this was an awesome deal, just that I think it indicates Disney will still offer FD at some point this year.

Nope 2 days is WAY better than nothing. I wasn't saying it was bad, it's just not free dining. It's a promotion for people to use that TA.....

A good one I might add!!!

We are going in Sept. and I am soooooooooo hoping we get a bounce back offer with FD. We have never been offered a BB with free dining before. Will surely take advantage if we are offered!

I think the poster just meant that it's not being offered by Disney, but the TA, so it's not really a sign towards Disney's upcoming promotions.

And maybe they got wind of some discount for foreign travelers only?
