Values will get QSDP and mods and deluxes will get regular DDP. You can pay to upgrade to a higher plan no matter where you stay.

Sorry you are having to miss out. It amazes me how some schools encourage family travel, and other schools give parents such a hard time..
We are going 9/7 to 9/15 and taking two kids out of school. The school supported it and we are going early (during review time). The school even helped me arrange for a tutor for the week before we go to get the work out of the way so they could enjoy the vacation. The week before we go our girls will stay at school for an extra hour and a half and work on their school work. Talk to the school... most are great.

The promo isn't for overseas visitors?

No, that is not correct. Most UK visitors book through the UK site and get separate promos and discounts than US guests and through the US WDW site.

I don't know what country you are in, but I believe you said you were already booked through the Disney, so you will be able to call US Disney reservations, when the FD codes are released, and have them add the FD discount to your existing reservation. If you booked through a travel agent then the agent will have to call to have the discount added.

Yea the campground is just referring to the cabins. I too would be surprised at anything offered for campsites.

Ok, I just talked to my Disney lady at AAA. She said her Disney Rep hasn't heard a peep about FD, and it wasn't brought up in their quarterly meeting, so he is under the assumption it's just "rumor." I'm still fairly new to posting and reading, so, how reliable is Danny25? Could this really still be a rumor? I don't want to worry over nothing

Danny has been spot on with his info for 2 years. He only posts when he knows it to be fact.

A question, just so I aif I set up my reservation so I am clear:

If I set up my reservation now and put down my $200 deposit, all I need to do to get free dining would be to call on the start date of the promotion and add free dining?

Or would I need to cancel the existing reservation and re-reserve?

Just want to make sure I totally understand before untying money down...

I think the September start makes a lot of sense for this year. My SIL is a teacher and typically our public schools go back before Labor Day. However this year they start after Labor day, so that last week of August will have more potential visitors than in past years...Now that we have early Fall covered, what are the thoughts on October - Im coming down 24-31 and hoping for FD or some other decent discount. Appreciate the thoughts.

If you decide to book now instead of just waiting for the deal to come out, you will need to book a package. If you were to book a room only, it would have to be canceled and rebooked as a package to get the free dining added on. At this point, there really is no advantage to booking now versus later (unless you plan on going even without free dining at a resort where availability is already limited).
