I cant believe that they would offer free dining to everyone else expect for the values..... The values are what brings in their business for large families able to stay loner (2 week periods) just don't see it happening ... We will just have to wait and see but its driving me crazy....

Free dining is not available at values for the British offer, and they stay longer than Americans tend to...usually two to three weeks. So length of stay is probably not a consideration.

I do think the British offer still has regular dining at deluxes, though, and the current US rumor is QS for both mods and deluxes.

What exactly is a PIN code? Is it a special offer in an email similar to a debit card PIN?

It is a unique numerical code assigned to you alone entitling you to a specific discount. People receive them directly from Disney through email or snail mail.

Thanks! Only way to find out is to call? I haven't received anything via snail mail and nothing from Disney lately via email about a planning a trip. Our last Disney World vacation was the end of Jan 2012.

Yes the only way to find out if you have a pin code is to call the reservation line and ask. They will check it for you!

Yes, if you haven't received an email or snail mail, give Disney a call.

UK offer does not include regular dining plan for free dining at deluxes.
qsdp for both mods and deluxe accommodations.

Warning about this, they will also charge you for an adult park ticket which upped out price $200 so we didn't do it.

The $40 difference is the ticket upgrade, I think, though that seems high. When we upgraded DD last year during free dining, the ticket increase from child to adult was $19.17 for a 9 day hopper. It was more than worth it. Why would it have cost you $200? That doesn't look right to me.

It is only a $20 difference from a child to an adult ticket. It is definitely a good deal if you are getting free dining....Not so much if you are paying for dining, way to expensive, lol. I really hope that they keep up with there historic discounts and offer something for July!

Thanks for this I will call to upgrade my free dining for my daughter. She, is 8 now but will be 9 at time of travel! *Edited to add that the upgrade did only cost around $20 dollars for the week for my daughter!* She is going to be so happy!

So the person, who said it added another $200 call back.

Joining in - hoping for free dining in the fall. Trying to plan a trip for the last week of August, but if there is no free dining (or another discount similar), I don't think we will be able to do it. Keeping my fingers crossed!

Us too! We could do the trip without FD but not sure we want to. We have stayed off site the last two trips. They were fun but we were looking forward to a total immersion Disney trip. We would probably skip this year if there was no FD.
