The more I look into this, the more I'm convinced FD will be announced end of April, beginning of May....my curiosity has me wondering if it'll be free QS across the board, or as in past-free QS for value, free regular for mods and deluxe..Whatever way they do it, I'll be waiting!! We are booked at AKL for Sept 8-16, meeting good friends that are staying at WL cabins and we are ALL waiting for some free dining!!

Historic Patterns for fall free dining offers. Remember too that the bounceback from last year for fall 2013 were for stays beginning on August 18. I'm looking for the trend going back to late April, leaning toward April 25.

2006 - Booking started April 1
2007 - Booking started April 9
2008 - Booking started April 7
2009 - Booking started March 30
2010 - Booking Started April 29
2011 - Booking Started April 28
2012 - Booking Started March 1

My family of 6 is booked at POR Sept.8-16th with the DDP. Would love free dining, but we are going with the DDP regardless. My Cast Member, when I called to apply a room discount PIN code, a month or so ago, told me that "there would almost definitely be a better discount that you will want to swap the room discount for coming out by late April to early May." I can't see that it would be anything other that Free Dining, right?

What about Chase Disney Visa holders? Seems in years past the FD offer was made available to them before it was made available to the public. At least we always got a notice of it before it went public.

I noticed this morning that my current limited time offer on my DV is for stays through this summer, must be booked by March 31st.....I keep hoping that means we'll get the offer of FD next week before it goes out to the public?

We can only go if we get FD and we're anxoius for our every other year trip to be booked and ready to go! We've got our dates & resorts narrowed down, just waiting on the FD offer to come out to book!

Visa holders get three days advance on the public. The summer offer will begin next on April 2, so we have a few more weeks before we hear about free dining. Probably around the end of April.

The offer coming out next week is for the summer months and it is a room discount with the option to purchase slightly discounted tickets. It is only good for dates through Aug 14. We still have a little while before any chance of Sep FD is available. Probably late April/early May before any Sept. deals come out.

We decided not to get the dining plans, but if they come out with free dining that would be awesome. One less expense.

Bounceback Dates

I have Free Dining booked for Sept that I booked last year on the Bounceback Offer in the room. We have done it this way for years. The difference this year was the the dates were not the same as they had been.

The brochure shows the following dates:
Moderates with DDP 8/18-9/13/13
Deluxe with DDP 8/18-9/26/13

This is the first time (we booked CSR) that we were not going to be able to work our stay with Food & Wine, where we like to use our Snack Credits. The Moderates offer ended 9/13. We booked to arrive the 11th. I didn't ask about Value because my family fits better in the moderate room. Wondering if they do come out with this FD offer to the public it will include the more limited dates for moderates.

I'm taking the release of a summer discount as a good sign that FD will be offered in the fall.

My dad is a disney travel agent and he said there's a good chance disney won't do free dining but the summer discount basically secures a discount for sept since its the slowest time of year.

That's interesting - we booked on a bounceback and were able to secure check in on 9/28 with free dining. We booked a value resort and received free quick service (which we upgraded to the DDP). I think that sets us up to hit the very beginning of the Food & Wine festival. It might be worth a call to see if you could do a different check in date and still keep the free dining.

We were at POR the middle of August 2012 and I called and they told us no Bounceback offer. Now I read that others were offered bounceback offers. Kind of upsetting.

I would bet $$ that it'll be FD, and not just because I'm waiting on it too! We are booked from Sept 8-16-we'll go regardless of it, but oh my goodness, it will kill our budget w/out it!

Well, I am jumping on this band wagon. Have not booked yet, and got a Disney Visa app in the mail the other day. Got to fill that out.
