Pardon me, the last 2 years. Before that, for years, it was much later.

Honestly I don't remember it being much later in April. I've been going for several years. With free dining. We are heading into the second week of April now.

I think someone posted this a few pages back, but this shows the dates they've released promos.

Edited to add- I just realized it only goes back 3 years. I thought it had more than just the past 3 years listed.

And in 2005, I think it was June.
The 2010, 2011 dates were really late, weren't they? I'm betting that's what we are looking at this year.

As I mentioned above, booking for 2011 started in 2010. It was given a 2nd chance in April.

I think so too. Since they just released summer discounts I'm betting end of summer/fall ones won't be until sometime in May.

I'm new to the dis, is there a way to get alerted to free dining or do I just keep coming back and checking this thread?

There really isn't anyway to be alerted (as far as I know). If it is offered it is offered to Disney Visa card holders first and then a couple days later it will be released to the general public. You could sing up for emails on the Disney website and check there periodically.

Actually, the deals are usually posted here on the Dis long before they ever go live. It will be posted here in this thread and new threads will be started as well.

Mindalee27, keep checking the Discount Codes and Rates forum here on Disboards. That is where the bulk of the deal info will be posted. Also, there are sticky threads at the top of each forum with excellent info covering FAQs related to the forum topics.

If you are on Facebook and follow any Disney pages ( the Dis, Mousesavers, any travel agents, etc...) you'll see it there pretty quickly after the deal is announced. It'll be all over these boards too.

I'm starting to lose hope. I wish they would stop ****in' around. At least give us a discount so I can save some $$ on my trip. Wouldn't be fair to wait till just a few months out from sept. here's another hint why I think FD has gone to the wayside. They changed advance dining reservations to 180 days out. Few years ago? And a few years ago they offered FD right around 180 days out from the fall. So people can make reservations.

If they have the discount for hotels do they ever combine with free dining?
