Appriciate the effort and time you take to get and post info. I fall into the have-not category, going August 19-31. Wanted to use a PIN I got in January, but DW hesitated (she even admitted she was wrong! )
Hopefully a room discount will at least pop up before long any savings will help.

I got that pin too. It is saving me a little (About $400-$500), but by no means free dining

Here's my VERY UNEDUCATED guess (hope ....) - since we all know Disney is trying to shy away from the Free Dining LINGO. Maybe us Late August peeps may see some Stay Play and Dine? Similar to what they offered in Jan/Feb. Of all time periods, I just can't imagine no discount for us. Such an odd time to offer no discounts - even with conventions in town.

Still waiting ...................................

Yeah!!!!

Thank you Danny for sharing this wonderful news. We are heading to the mouses house sept 23-30th and this will be our first time with free dining. I've been stalking the boards with hopes of fining info. I really appreciate everyone's insight and especially Danny & Blacks help on the inside scoop.

Thanks.
Flying out of Wilmington, DE via Frontier. They pulled out of Philly and are trying to find smaller airports to handle Philadelphia traffic. Service starts in July, intro prices were $59! They only fly on TUESDAY and SATURDAY and there is only 1 flight each day....but the price is RIGHT! The best I could find out of Philly was $114 with southwest, and I don't think it will go lower than that. I think the prices have gone up 20$ (the intro fares ended on 4/20) - but you will still be able to get airfare for 5 for about $800. They have service in Trenton that has been doing well, but service there will stop right around the time that it starts in wilmington. Good luck! Hope their flights are convenient for you and that you too can get a great deal! website is flyfrontier dot com

So does this mean I can book a room for 9/12 - 9/18 and only buy a 2 day ticket to get free dining? I wanted to upgrade my DL AP to the Premier Passport. Would I be able to use the 2 day ticket towards that?

Wow, I was looking at some lists of TS meals, they allow character meals like CM? And dessert is included?

That is going to be so awesome... my husband is going to do cartwheels when he gets home, we don't usually eat so well at Disney. We're saving hundreds of bucks, but we'd also be eating twice as well.

Question- on a free dining plan, at TS restaurants, are 2 adults allowed to split an entree (too much food for us! Hate for it to go to waste)?

I'm not sure everything you're asking.

The dates are September 2-25, you may begin booking on May 9 (and even earlier if you have a Disney Visa)

Values get quick service, moderates and deluxe get regular dining plan.

Minimum stay of 3 nights and 2 day ticket required.

If you stay at a value, you can also upgrade to the regular plan for $18 adults and $3 children.

That's it in a nutshell...

I'm sorry, I am not understanding what you are saying. There is a free dining offer that will be released to the public on May 9th. It will be valid for check in dates of Sept 2 through Sept 25. Is there something else you are wanting to know?

ETA: thanks for listing more details, Black.

All character meals are included on the Disney dining plan. We have done free dining every year and we are spoiled :-). Love it!

You will have to ask at the individual restaurants, a few do not allow sharing on the DDP. If you docs search I know there is a thread about it on the dining board.

Yes sure all of the characters meals are included (except swan and dolphin restaurant) and most of them cost a TS credit, yes you can share an entree, some will object that but it's allowed if both of you are in the DP and it's not an all you can eat restaurant, have a Magical trip!!!
