Yea but its terribly worded and sounds like some CMs are basing their info on those dates too. I hate it when someone waits on hold and is told it's not offered during a date when it actually is.....

Maybe they do what the dining CMs do, and are getting their information from the website. Don't know how many times I've seen people post that a phone CM gave them wrong info that conforms to a mistake on the website. Unfortunately the Disney website is just not a reliable source of information.

Make no mistake, I think they are as dumb as a box of rocks for listing it that way, but that is just my guess as to WHY it is listed that way.

I was on hold for 40 minutes and had to be transferred twice but was able to get everything switched. We are booked September 25th - October 1st at the All Stars Movie Resort with Free Dining. I upgraded to the Regular Dining Plan. This means we are going about a month early. But that 40 minute hold was totally worth saving $400!!!

I'm truly glad everyone gets the free dining.

I'm holding out for a December offer for it. I debated changing my dates for September and then decided NO. The only time that would have interested me would be the 25th and stay long enough to see the Food and Wine Festival. Then, I thought that most of us would be thinking the same way.

I would get your dinner reservations in quickly for TS.

Oh yes I had an active chat. He's looking into it. Hope they realize how terrible the wording is on it.

It was so worth it! Fastest shower in history! Saved over $500! Can't wait until September!
