Free Dining for Fall 2013

I just saw the dates for the fall free dining. The site says that the reservations open on Thursday. Do I have to wait for an email with the code on it before I can make the reservation using free dining? I usually book online. Hopefully, the email will come before Thursday, but just wondering in case it doesn't.

No fall free dining dates have been released yet, or even been leaked - that I have seen. If FD dates are released this Thursday, the codes will be all over these boards and you will be able to call then and book. Usually Free Dining promos are open to Disney Visa holders 3 days before the general public. If a DV free dining promo does come out on Thursday you will have to have a Disney Visa to book. Also it can take a day or two before a FD promo can be booked on line. Usually if you want to book on release day, you need to call.

Thanks. I googled free dining for fall 2013 and a travel agents site came up with the dates. I know last year the dates didn't come out until sometime in May.

I just rechecked and the way my search was worded, it gave me this site, but the dates are actually for last year

this was why it came up with my search
Free Dining is Back for Fall! 2013 Packages are on the way!

Am I mistaken. that link is talking about 2012 and says 2013 are on there way soon. When I booked a bounce back last august we got free dining. the cm told us that free dining was going to be offered from aug. 18 through sept. 25. We just called to make a change on our reservations and another cm told us the same thing.

Way too early for fall dates to be released. They haven't even released the late summer free dining deal yet. It will be at least July before we see anything for Oct.-dec.

Sorry! I was so excited when I saw your post, I googled too and couldn't believe it. When I went back to look at the dates again, I noticed that 2012 too...next time I'll put my glasses on before sending incorrect info.

That's free dining 2012 AND the 2013 release of packages which all came out awhile ago. I think your all getting confused by the wording of the title of the link on the website. But you are all onto the right idea I think! The promo out right now ends on 3/7 I think? Or sometime around that SO a new promo will be out sure enough and soon enough, my money would be on seeing FD promo be released in April or may for fall 2013. I as well am hoping for it

This site is from 2012... All the comments are from 2012..
And has only the dates for 2012

From site:
9/30/1210/4/12
10/19/1211/1/12
11/9/1211/15/12
11/23/1211/29/12
12/10/1212/13/12


It's just says FD dates for 2012 and that 2013 packages are on the way..

This doesn't mean 2013 FD packages... Just that disney is opening up the dates in 2013 for booking..

Disney hasn't released there summer deals yet.. I would think they would do those 1st... Unless they are not having any..

But it still made my heart skip a beat!

OP, you may want to edit your first post so others don't get confused.

Correct the next promo we will see will be soon enough (April/may release if not sooner!) and will be for late summer promo meaning the end of August to the end of September. Then come July you will see another promo for October and later months into the winter. No one can say what promos these will be but my hopes is some FD also!!
