I get all those too.. They just mean that Disney definitely has your information. Today I received a Disney Destinations mailer and I started jumping up and down.. Lol.. It was from nov. to dec. no pincode just advertising.. So disappointing..

My TA said they won't put out new dates until the current promotion ends (9/29). So, here's hoping stuff comes out next week. FWIW, I only booked dining about 10 days ago, and there was plenty of availability. I got Akershus and Be Our Guest for w/o 1/27. There were openings for CRT during that time frame, too--I didn't book there (did it last time, don't want to waste credits), and I don't remember if it was for all three meals. But, I wouldn't panic about restaurants just yet.

We already have a package booked with a AAA discount, so I'm good either way. I just don't want to pay, then re-book and have it take weeks to get the refund--particularly since this is a gift trip, so it won't be MY credit that gets exercized.

They sure will be busy!

Tomorrow Fall FD offer ends, lets see if they release a new one on Sunday or next week!

From what I know, and i may be wrong, If you have booked an AAA room only discount you can not get a dining plan with that.

Bo Duke, it is true that you cannot book a AAA room only and add a dining plan, but since BuzznBelle'smom has booked a package, she can have a dining plan. Also there would be no reason to cancel and rebook if free dining comes out.

BuzznBelle'smom, if a free dining plan comes out for your dates, you will need to let your TA know so they can call Disney and see if it can be applied to your reservation. There is a chance that you would need to switch room categories or even hotels depending on what is offered, but you would keep the same reservation number and any credit would be refunded to you. They say to allow one to two billing cycles for refunds, but in my experience, it has only taken a matter or days to a week. Good luck!

Thanks! My TA is on hot stand-by for any new deals coming out. She's expecting that it will be in the next couple of weeks. She said she had a couple clients she was looking out for with this. It's possible the TA's would even get advance notice, I don't know.

It's been a while since I've stayed onsite, so this whole dining plan stuff is fairly new to me. We did the Premium Plan, 10 years and a couple of kids ago.

Also, the TA is the one who said WDW can take up to 30 days to credit a cancelled/rebooked trip. Since it's not my credit card, I don't want to tie up so much of someone else's money. In any event, we're still 4 months out, so no need to rush down and pay it off. I did the deposit, but on my card--I don't mind having $200 in limbo for a month, if necessary.

On a good note, I got my Unofficial Guide today,a nd I realized DH and I have more Disney money (rewards dollars and a gift card) than I anticipated. So, I booked Hoop De Doo and I'm splurging on Park Hopper passes. And getting really excited!

Not really... maybe a matter of hours if anything.

woohoo! Winter graphics are up on Special Offers page and old Fall FD is history! Won't be long now When do you think it will be released? I'm hoping for within the next 5 minutes but in reality my vote would be around Columbus Day 10/8.
