I'm pretty sure I know the answer is no, but I'll check with you wonderful knowledgeable souls anyway!!
We booked POR 6-14 Feb and park tickets on Dec 10th. I guess there's no way of getting free dining??

We don't have a credit card and we live in Canada if that makes any difference (I'm sure it doesn't!!)

Sorry, but there is no current free dining offer for the general public. I've heard only of those on bounceback, PIN codes and the offer for residents of Great Britain.

I would think that for February you are out of luck unless you receive a PIN code.

Thanks for your quick response!! It's typical that GB residents can get it, I lived there until 18 months ago!!!

There has so far been no general public free dining offer including any dates in 2013 at all.

As far as I can tell, only 2011 and 2012 had any general public dates in March.

Stating there is NO free dining for the year is a) incorrect and b) not something we will know until the year is up.

I was answering a question in regards to FD, but even stated that it is questionable as to whether it will be released for the upcoming year.
Ok, I get it now they "may" be phasing out free dining for the SPD offer..Ahha, I get it finally! Aaarcher86, is right as I am a person who is a receiver of free dining due to my mother bouncing back.

Yes, there were numerous assumptions that Stay Play and Dine is the "new" general public discount. Looks to be the case for the first quarter of the year, but nothing can be certain.

So, if there will be no free dining what is SPD?
And I wasn't clear, I guess, but we didn't stay with free dining in March. We booked our trip in March for free dining in September.

SPD = Stay, Play, Dine.

It's a discounted dining/ticket plan - adults pay children prices for dining and tickets. It's better than full price, but not as nice of a dining discount as FD.

If a discount on dining is offered on the dates we will be at disney, whether FD or SPD, would I be able to apply the discount if I have already booked our trip and bought the dining plan?

You sure can. As long as you've got the requirements for the trip - usually a nightly/ticket requirement for a certain number of days.

Also bearing in mind that they only allow so many rooms at each resort for each discount, so you may have to switch rooms or even resorts.

For example - I booked my trip at POR in a standard room, but had to switch to a garden view when I applied the S/P/D offer because the standards either weren't being included or were booked up for the discount.

Skellinton, We are still hoping for FD for Sept. also!! This will be our 5th trip and have gotten the fd for the last 3 (our 1st trip they didn't have dp at all), We booked with dining but with at least 10 everytime we go the fd discount really helps out!! Keeping my fingers crossed for release in March for fall!!

We already have free dining. We booked bounceback again. My only issue is now we want the regular dining plan so we plan to upgrade to a moderate. I'm assuming some how I can do this since they will be getting a extra 1000.00 from me.
