Normally free dining is for a minimum 3 night stay, with 2 day park tickets. Good for up to, I believe, 14 night maximum.
They tend to advertise different combos, trying to suggest to potential guest what a good amount of days/nights are, but if you check out the real details, it's not limited to what they suggest.

If you are saying you thought the current Dec. sale (now available through 12/20) didn't apply to you because you are staying 5 nights, that is untrue. Call quickly!!!

Hoping for late January FD! Already started making some ADR's, but FD will define if I'll use all of them or just a few.

Waiting for the announcement for January (or lack thereof) During the time we will be there. . . in the past free dining was offered, which factored into the choice of dates, so I'm hoping. We have our package booked already. . .we have our dining reservations already, just waiting to hear if FD will be offered. I thought I had a ticker showing how long until our vacation, maybe it isn't showing up.

Although we are going either WAY... Just wouldn't hurt to save a few dollars.

We had free dining the week before Thanksgiving in 2011, so I'm hoping for it in 2013.

Sounds like us, but it's been since 2007! We are going mid-end of August and would LOVE FD!

pin code?

Has anyone received a pin code for 2013? I received about 452 of them for 2012, but of course I am not going in 2012.

Just wondered if anyone had seen them or if anyone might know when they would come out?

Thanks!

I am fairly confident it will be offered. August has always been the FD time period. Fingers crossed and maybe we'll see you there.
