Certainly possible. August release dates have happened before.

I seriously doubt there will be a discount offered that day. The 2014 rates come out that day, and discounts are not typically released on Wednesdays. Can you imagine the call volume if they released a discount the same day as package rates? The system would crash in record time!

My bet is they were told their will be overtime due to the 2014 rates, but weren't told why and a cm took it as being a promotion.

Maybe the CM considers 2014 rates a promo, LOL.

My coworker and boss both got FD pin codes and they aren't planning a DW trip. So I called and asked if I had one on my account and go figure I don't. I've signed up for everything I can think of trying to get a PIN code, grrrrr. So that was a short call

How far out do PINs get applied to your name and how long are they good for?

We are looking at going to Disney again in late Jan or early Feb 2014. Would there be a PIN attached to my name for that time period or all the PINs only good for the next couple months?

Three of my four closest friends have received FD pin codes (one planning a trip and two who are not). So bummed that I haven't! Have called a few times asking if any pins are attached to my name with no luck.

I have a 9-night POFQ trip booked for November (and all the ADRs I wanted including BOG!), but I'm afraid that without free dining (or some other significant discount) it might not happen. Fingers crossed!!

Right now pins are only out up until December. Keep watching, maybe in a month or two early next year will be out.

I have wondered this same thing. Can I just call and check or does the TA have to do it?

You can call to see if you have a PIN attached to your name. However, your TA would have to have it applied to your reservation if you do have one.

As in April 2013? No. There were some FD pins that went through the early part of March but September is the first time in 2013 FD has been out for the public.

In 2012 there was no FD in April either http://www.mousesavers.com/historica...ort-discounts/
