Hey, no problem. Just glad to help. Don't think of it as a downgrade; just different. Great option when you have kids! Nothing like a great deal to get ya pumped! I love that feeling!

Does anyone know if they offer free dining in the early part of Nov? Trying to price out different options. I know it is early but that's how I plan. Tks.

So it seems that it is not uncommon for Disney to release FD for late summer/ early fall in May...that's good to remember.

I am planning a trip for mid-October and the suspense is KILLING me. Free dining is crucial to us (two adults, no kids). We can shift dates to catch free dining if necessary, but whew, the anxiety of waiting for an announcement...!

My wife told our 2 yr old daughter that we were going to see Cinderellas home this fall (Sept 8-14). To a 2 year old, "this fall" means tomorrow - so she was sad yesterday that we weren't leaving yet.

I'm sharing since like everyone else I'm anxious about finding out about fall discounts (and hopefully FD), but I don't think there are more people more excited or anxious then the little children!

Awww!! I remember those days!! My daughter use to ask "Is tomorrow in the morning?" Lol

Maybe making a chain calendar with her where you tell her when you pull the last chain link off is when you go, that helped when my kids were small!

So now they are saying it may be May before we hear anything I'm still holding out hope till May but I'm seriously disappointed Disney is letting everyone wait. I know that discounts are never guaranteed but what's the harm in announcing whether they are going to have them or not? What about ppl who need to book flights? Just doesn't seem right...

No it's not, and at this point the April 25th date is out the window. This year Disney seems to be playing their cards closer to the chest and waiting a bit longer to release promos. It likely gives them a better idea of how their bookings look. I think May will reveal all without a doubt. I only hope they stick with the last week in August to begin and don't push the start date into September. I still feel like August 24 is the strongest and most likely begin date but I do think the cut off will be around the end of September.

My point was that it at least gives hope to the people who thought that there would be no FD if it was not announced in April.
