Interesting conversation with CM on WDW Chat!!!!

Here is the full chat I just had with the nicest cm named Thomas! I am hoping this is GREAT news for all of us 2013 FD wannabes!!

BEGINNING OF CHAT:
"Thank you for contacting Disney. Please hold while we route your chat to a Disney Cast Member who will help you with your question.

Welcome to Disney! My name is Thomas. How may I help you today?

you: HI Thomas! How are you!? I was wondering if the Free Dining promotion that went through December is now available for January trips of this coming year?

Thomas: Howdy! I am doing well thank you.

you: Haha!

you: Glad to hear you are doing great!

Thomas: I cannot say about the free dining. But, I expect to be able to say something about that tomorrow.

you: Really??? Haha! You are funny! Well...I will definitely check back tomorrow then!

Thomas: Yes, we know something but cannot talk about it with you until then.

you: I had heard it might come out today but I checked the website and saw nothing so I though I'd ask. Thanks for the hope! We are really wanting to keep our ressie at WDW but might not be able to or will have to scale back big time if we don't get the FD like we did last year. You guys are spoiling us! You know that right!?

Thomas: I understand what you mean.

Thomas: Yes, you are being spoiled but it is okay.

you: No worries!! I appreciate you pointing me in the right direction! I will have my eyes peeled and be excited to see what may unfold!! Thanks so much!! You rock!!

Thomas: You're welcome! Tomorrow will be exciting for sure.

you: EEEEKKK!! Thanks again!! Blowing pixie dust your way for an amazing day for your help to me!! Have a GREAT and MAGICAL day!!

Thomas: It's been a pleasure chatting with you. I've enjoyed helping you plan your vacation; if you have a moment, I would love to have your feedback through a survey at the end of this call. Thanks for choosing Disney!

you: Absolutely!! Thanks!!

Thomas: Have a Magical Night too!

you: You too!! Bye!!" END OF CHAT



I know I can't rely on ONE CM's info but at least it's not bad news, right!?

Strange, they don't normally put out discounts on Tuesdays. Usually Mondays, sometimes Thursdays.

I thought that too. But he acted as though he totally knows something. Of course, he could be yanking my chain too and just leading me on! How cruel would that be though? He seemed genuinely nice. Guess tomorrow will tell!!

OMG! This has to be it, right? Isn't it against some kind of Disney law for a CM to fib? Crossing my fingers and toes!

Not for Free Dining. They have only had free dining in January for the last 2 years and FD offer and room only offers don't hardly every come out at the same time.

That CM sounded very encouraging about there being free dining in January. Now I just hope it extends to our planned trip in February. Or I may find myself switching to a January trip.

To tell you the truth, I would not be at all surprised if Disney offered free dining in January. We have gone there in January many, many times. The crowds are light and the weather is usually too chilly for most people. We have even hit frost. So Disney would want to try to fill that month up.

Seems like last year that the FD extension (where try extended the fall offer into Jan and on) was not offered to Visa holders first. I didn't get anything about that and I was looking for it last fall bc we did FD last January too. I may be wrong though and could've just missed that.

Someone else needs to hop on chat on the WDW site and see what that CM says. Can't hurt!
