Just an FYI. if its the same as the spring special. CSR turned out to be the cheapest of the moderates with the discount.

I think there will be a discount for that time period after this one expires. Last year I think it came out in June.

Strange, we went august 19 - 26th last summer and had a room only discount...saved 30% off the beach club...there was definitely a room only offer out august 15-late September -ish last year!

Thanks Danny. Looks like the best we can probably hope for is the room only discount for November im guessing. Oh well, i'll take whatever I can get!

I was at the AoA in the family suites, no discount for those. If I remember correctly, I could have stayed at the BC or YC in a regular room for about what I paid for the AoA, but it was my kids' trip to Disney and they didn't find that appealing. We'd been hoping for a good discount but there wasn't one. I booked a bounce back and this year it's parent's choice, so BC here we come. I have other family members who are hoping for FD the week we are going (we pushed our dates towards September to increase our odds).

Thanks for giving us this info. It helps me to plan my August trip. In case anyone is wondering, I looked up the ticket discounts for spring and they are about $30 off per adult ticket. I looked at 5 day and 8 day tickets and both had about the same discount. Hopefully I did the math right!

Guys, I wouldn't read too much into this yet. In fact, the dates may be more telling than you think. With the exception of last year, the free dining offers have generally been released in late April, and usually begin right after the summer offer ends. If you remember the bouceback offers last fall that were for free dining this fall, they began August 18th.

So far, everything is making perfect sense to be the same as years before.

Some history:
2009 - Free dining began 8/16 and was available for booking on 3/30.
The summer room only discount expired on 8/14 and became available on 3/29.

2010 - Free dining began 8/15 and was available for booking on 4/29.
The summer room only discount expired on 8/8 and became available on 5/7.

2011 - Free dining began on 8/28 and was available for booking on 4/28.
The summer room only discount expired on 8/13 and became available on 4/1.

2012 - Free dining began on 8/25 and was available for booking on 3/1.
The summer room only discount expired on 8/14 and became available on 4/2.

I suppose when you've done it every year since they began offering free dining, it tends to grow on you. A couple years ago, I totally called free dining when everyone else said it was gone. I was so confident, that I blogged it...my friends said I'd have egg on my face...that is, until it hit on exactly that date.

Keep the faith....now the big question is will it be QS or TS for Moderates. A quick prediction says the later, and I'll tell you why I believe that. I am within my 180 days, so last week I made an ADR each day. I had no trouble finding spots for any time I wanted, no matter where it was. Usually, there's always times blacked out due to others making 180+10 ADRs; however, I was able to do it without issue using only the 180 option.

Plus the fact that the summer promo ends right about when last year's fall 2013 bounceback for FD begins. Time will tell...

Thank you for looking this up...I was wondering about the ticket discounts...I am already booked at POFQ with a 20% room discount on Orbitz, and although I could cancel and rebook under this promo, probably not worth it for POFQ, and at this point we do not want to change resorts as we are traveling with other families..

Danny, do you know if there will be any resort restrictions in the deluxes? Specifically, I am looking for AKL savannah room June 17-23. May be too specific at this point, but worth a try!

Thank you very much! Your track record is stellar!

Ivonne- I just went to the wdw special offers site and plugged in some early june rates with the spring offer. I did room only. Then I added on the tickets and if you click open under the tickets they show you the total price for tickets by days. I compared these to the regular prices ( I like to get the chart from mousesavers)

Thanks Danny. We're staying at YC CL 6/24 through 6/28. I'd much rather have a 30% room discount over FD.

Is it common for them to end an offer mid week since most people travel weekend to weekend?
