I got a pin back in the Fall that gave me 35% off my room in August. It's the only one I've seen for that late. Still hoping for free dinning as it would give us more savings but I can't complain about saving around $900 for two rooms!
CM told me if they had free dinning at the time we are there I can switch so I hope that is the case. Mind you I'm off two minds about the free dinning, I'd love it for myself but then I think it means more people eating at the table service places so harder to get reservations etc. Maybe that's ture and maybe not but I expect it does effect things and brings more people in during those times. I suppose that Disney either has the free dinning at times when there are less people going so its a way to get people to go then or to give them last minute and maybe get a few more people to go during a busy time. Just a theory but I'm certainly happy with my room savings.

Free dining is almost always ONLY offered during (comparatively) slower times of the year to boost resort occupancy. This is why you never see FD during major holiday periods.

There is a strong and credible rumor from a reliable source that says that this year's FD offer will not be available at value resorts and will only be QS at the mods. Can't remember if deluxe resorts will get the DDP.

I've gotten multiple pins over the past few months that offered FD OR a room only discount. R/O wins out as the best deal for us, hands down.

We are staying at a mod so now I can't remeber if it was 35% or 30% but it saved us around $900!
Might be hope for free dinning as we are going at the last week of August which is the beginning of value season...guess we'll see.

It was mixed if I remember correctly. The % off varied by resort and room catagory. For example pool view bunk beds at AKL if I remember correctly were 35% off. Savanah view wasn't 35% otherwise we would have been all over it. AoA (suites) were covered, LM rooms at AOA weren't. Choice for us came down to AoA, Gardenview at CR, or the bunks at AKL. Figured we would take the space and extra room while the kids are still young enough to enjoy the theme.

As for getting PINs, there is a logic/science to it. No clue how Disney targets the codes however or to who. Last year DW had probably 6 offers for Disneyland, which at this stage in our life just don't work. This will be the 3rd time we have used a 35% off discount. As long as they keep sending those we will keep using them.
