We went just days after hurricane came across Atlantic and directly hit WDW in Sept 2004 and I believe (correct me if I'm wrong) they said that was the first time they ever took a direct hit. There was also another hurricane coming up the Gulf the same time we were there that week (the 2nd part of our vacation was supposed to be in Lido Key, but decided to stay put in WDW) and weather behaved. It was only cloudy, which is a good thing at that time of year and we practically had the whole park to ourselves.

Only the check in date matters for free dining. Look at it this way, though, they could extend the room offer OR if nothing is offered, the crowd levels for your week are likely to be amazingly low.

Sorry, you are out of luck. Your check IN date must fall within the FD promo dates.

Please share why? I am always interested in your take on things. Just curious. I am kinda surprised by this news. Maybe it's the skeptic in me.

Did I miss something? Did someone give projected dates for new promo? The dates that will be covered in the next promo period.--to be more clear.

Danny already said that the LM rooms appear to be included this time. Not sure about the royal rooms.

I am super excited!!! My trip started out as a budget no frills trip. Then we realized that we can't go the original week so decided to go a week early. This puts us in free dining. DH says that he prefers the sit down meals and how much to upgrade. So I told him and he said fine do that. BUT if the DDP is at the mods then moving to a mod is only $80 more than upgrading the QSDDP at the values. I am going to sneak in the upgrade and not tell the family until it is time to put the address in the GPS!

Danny's original post, when I wrote that, said he would give details tonight. He normally says he will give info 20 days out, so lead me to believe he was going to say the release date was May 16.

Within a few minutes of his post saying he would announce the dates tonight, he came right back and said the new FD release date was now May 9. And I have no idea why he did it that way.

I'm just glad there are some firm dates out, very surprised the last week of August was not included. I knew there would be a free dining offer coming, but really thought August 25 would be the start date. They must have an unusually high resort occupancy rate during that week this year.

That I will believe when I see it. Even if they get included in the Disney Visa offer, I just have a hard time believing they will be in the GP offer. Don't you think?
