Why do you think the FD time frame is so tight this year? I wonder if they will extend it at all?

Because Disney wants to minimize as much as possible, but still realize they must do this to keep folks coming during the slow time.

Exactly. Free dining has created traffic in the parks and fills rooms during historically low crowd seasons. If they completely got rid of FD those attendance numbers and occupancy rates would once again plummet for those time frames. Just a basic numbers game :-)

No, you will just need to call when the FD code is released and they will modify your existing reservation, no problem.

Excited that FD is offered for my time but totally frustrated because last night I changed my reservation from campsites to a value and purchased airfare because I was told that FD would never be included on campsite purchase but Danny lists the campsites as included!! UGH Could cry right now!

I'm skeptical of the campsites being included in that list, as they have never been included in a general public FD promo. When you call, to add the code to your existing reservation, you can ask them and if, by some crazy chance they are included, you can change your resort again.
