I know! That was a horrible wait. Everyone here on DISBoards was like whaaa?!?! My fiance (now DW) and I went in '09 and then talked my brother and SIL to come with us in 2010 for the FD. And then THAT wait happened!

HERE'S HOPING THAT DOES NOT HAPPEN IN 2013! Let's get like a March release date. Especially with the 180 day ADR period, I want to beat as many other Guests as possible.

Is this information listed somewhere or do you just know it? Our daughter is having a school trip mid April (the week after Easter) so I was hoping for FD at that time. We have DVC so have never been able to get a MYW package with FD and I'd really like to do that this time since we won't be using DVC points for this trip.

Any idea, historically about April? Or can you point me to where the stats are kept?

This has been posted several times before, but I figured I'd make a recent post for those wondering.

I think we will see releases of a promotion in a week or two for the early part of 2013. Right after the most recent promotion expires. As for if it will be free dining, only time will tell. I have a feeling it may, but they change things so often I like to be cautious about predicting things.

Thank you. I did go back several pages and didn't see a link...just the info.

So for April 2013 I'm looking at Nov 2012 if going by recent stats. Thanks!

I think I am toasted. There seems to be nothing the week I am going.

Well, if it means less crowd, at least I'll take that.

Come on February 2013 FD

Any news on February 2013 FD? I am planning on going from Feb. 9-15 and this would be great. I have three boys, would it be worth upgrading the meal plan from a value deal.

I'm about to give up on free dining for January. We wanted to go and take our son (28) and our daughter and her 2 kids, 15 & 2. We've taken my son and granddaughter many times not not my daughter and the baby. The free dining would help us so much and we really can't go if FD isn't offered. I'll keep checking and hoping. I need to start making dining reservation! There won't be anything left.

Just keep looking. The current offer says "book by September 29", and it's good until December 22. If I were you, I would check on Sunday, maybe by then the dates will change to include January.

How do you get on an email list for vacation deals? Everything I get is always about movies and games.
