I agree. Although I just updated my MDE app on my iPad and it's showing my tickets for the first time (and my reservations are all there) so maybe that is some progress.

Or if there is a good chance we wouldn't get it...should we just have our res changed to POR? We were going to pay for the dining upgrade if we stayed at AOA anyway so staying at POR is only about $170 more for us. I just feel like its more of a "prize" to get a LM room with FD so wasn't sure of my chances.

I've never had an issue getting FD booked (did FD in 2009, 2011, & 2012) but reading these make me nervous!!
Which room are you looking at for POR? We were thinking of changing to POP if FD doesn't work out for LM. However, $170 doesn't sound too bad to upgrade to a moderate resort. We are only staying 5 nights, so it might be less for us.

Maybe there is hope yet ;-)

Surprising the kids with a trip to Disney. First time booking in October. We have been going the last few years for Labor Day and have been lucky to get the Free Dining. I know last year my sister went in October and the Free dining was offered then also but I do remember the offer came out kinda late. I was wondering if they are expecting that it will be released again? If so, when?

The October - December FD dates are not released annually until July, sometimes August

If it is offered in December I'd guess no later than the 13th (the 13th starts peak season). But who knows.

Probably November 30 - December 5 and December 14-19, just based on previous promos and scheduled events this year. Also, if you check in by the last day of a FD promo, you can have discount applied to your entire stay, up to 14 nights.

You can book and pay off your trip with gift cards, but if you do that, be sure to keep the cards in case you need a refund. They will refund you in the form of the original payment, so hang on to those empty cards until after your trip.
