No, unless she is going on the trip with you and booking the room. PINS are not transferable.

Or if you live at the same address; my current trip that me and parents are going on was booked on my friends pin code offer as we both share the same address.

I received a PIN in the mail today!!

I called the TA and gave her the pin code. I wanted to wait to see about the other families that we are travelling with (if they got pins or when it's released to the public) before changing because we are going to have to do our first night as room only because the FD doesn't begin until our second day and will change our touring plans as well.

The TA called Disney to ask some questions with my pin ... then called me while she still had them on the phone. She was able to apply my FD pin for up to 3 reservations... meaning, my reservation and two of the other families that we are travelling with!

So the 3 of us all switched to room only for 11/29 and have FD beginning 11/30 - the rest of the trip !!



that saved me $1000 ... and the other two $1300

Question PIN dates vs. Public Dates

In the past, have PIN dates always matched the offering to the general public? We have taken advantage of free dining before and loved it but the PIN we received has black out dates from Oct 3rd to Oct 18thish and the dates we can travel are Oct 5th-18th. Just wondering if Oct 5th will have a shot.

So my family and I didn't get the free dining and I was so so bummed but I go the MILs and she says I got a thing from Disney for free dining and I said really?! That's great but it's not transferable and we will just have to pay the money we would have saved and I told her the amount and I was just talking to her I didn't ask anything from her. Would you believe the next day my husband texts me and says oh my mom called and said that there was some extra money from his grandmothers estate that they "forgot" to give us and the total was the exact amount I told her the other day. I just thought that was the greatest thing ever and now I look at it as we got our "free" dining. It was our little pixie dust that we needed. She's awesome my MIL

I used to get pin codes all the time. Now when I am actually going this fall I get nothing! Ugh....I really need that November free dining pin!

I hope they are still sending them. I even went into both mine and my hubby's accounts and updated them and saved a reservation as well as did the survey at the end...

fingers crossed it might trigger something!

No apology needed, just wanted you to be sure to know that if you try to change your tags, you lose what I did

I had no trouble using the pin that was sent to my friend, who has a different last name, but we share the same address and she is not going on the trip.

So it seems free dining is only being offered during hurricane season except for those who got pins. Still hoping they offer free dining for December...

Got my pin today for November. Can I apply this to an existing reservation? Is there anyway to upgrade to the DxDP for an additional charge?
