Dates for Free Dining - Are you Sure????

How certain are people about the dates for free dining. Seems just copied from what was offered last year. No guarantee they will do the same. Or is the information from somewhere else? My friend is a travel agent and they don't have any inside information.

I'm hoping for an October trip but will be just as happy in November instead. Last year, there was a period in October where the free dining was not available as a special offer. I'd like to go Oct. 12-20. If not then, I'll just go Thanksgiving week and join the madness..

The leaked dates are pretty solid. Your Oct set of dates are never included in FD. The middle of Oct. is always blacked out, even from PINs.

Is that because of the food and wine festival?

Not really. It has more to do with so many schools having their Fall Breaks during that time. I think Canadian Thanksgiving is during that time, as well.

The CM I spoke with this morning said the free dining rumors are false and there is no free dining offer open at this time.

I just spoke to a cm who said all the rumors we have heard are false, and that they had already received over 300 calls at 7:15 this morning. He said to ignore the social media sites and only go with what you see on the official wdw sure. Poor guy seemed really frazzled and irritated - don't get me wrong, he was extremely helpful and kind, i could just tell he'd had quite a morning. So, all that to say - there is NO free dining offer.

I was also told this morning that on the CM's update board it claims that there is incorrect information that had been released on social media sites as to today's release for Visa holders. She said they have no free dining available as of now. She would not confirm or deny the Aug 1st date for GP release.

"No free Dining offer yet....." I'm willing to bet money it will be released this week sometime.

Keyword is "yet"...

Hello,
I am not sure if this has been covered or not but here is a theory I have:
We currently have a reservation for November and we have NOT received the free dining offer (we have the visa reward card too). I'm thinking if we did not already have a reservation we would be more likely to get a free dining offer. Reaction?
