No you can not. You can book up to 3 rooms with a single pin code.

Anxiously awaiting a discount. I have not booked yet because I can not make up my darn mind and my resort may change depending on the discount offered. *come on discount dust*

I am waiting as well so I can do the math on all the options...

I have looked over the cost of a few things...but how do you figure out if the FD is a good deal for your family or if a room discount is a good deal?

I know for sure we want to do the CRT for our family (2-3 adults; 3-4 children). But no clue what else to do for TS meals.

Google seeyareelsoon (note the spelling) and download their dining calculator. Among other things, you can compare free dining discounts with room only discounts to see what will be better for your family. Note, though, that you will have to ballpark what restaurants you'll eat at for the calculator to work, but you'll want to do this analysis to see if the DDP works for you anyway.

We have a family of 4-right now booked at AKL with a pin for 35% off. However, if FD is offered (hoping!), we'll have to downgrade to PO and take FD..The dining plan gives us the opportunity to eat at restaurants that we would not normally do on our own..Plus, it's just the convenience of it, I sometimes think that paying more for convenience is worth it!

First post on DIS!

Hoping for free dining 9/20-9/28!

I called the other day to see if there were any PINs associated with my name. The CM told me they hadn't sent out any recent PINs but she would confirm on my account. She confirmed I didn't have any but said the new promos would be out soon but she didn't know if it was going to be a room discount or free dining. She got my hopes up by just saying the words "free dining." Hopefully it comes out soon!

Alright, I'm officially "watching". We were just there last month, but we've decided that we'll do a long weekend for my birthday if the discounts are decent and we can get a good deal on airfare. We want to stay at AoA, so I know the discounts are going to be very limited for that. What we really want is 4 days at AoA and we'd do MNSSHP on one evening, and spend the rest of the time at the pool at AoA. We'll see.....

C'mon Disney, give me an excuse to make a full-family set of Tangled costumes.....

Assuming you're on their WIX site and downloading the official file, yes, it's safe. It's a protected Excel file in which you can enter data in specific fields. Then the magic (i.e. MATH) happens!
