The same it's done to them the last 9 years, not much - it's one of the lowest crowd weeks of the year.

Thank you so much Danny and Black And everyone else who is so helpful here! We are finally going back to WDW We have not been since 2009. It will be my 3 yo DD's first trip!! My 2 older are now Disney adults so free dining will help us out so much. We will be there from Sept. 14-20. Hope to see some of you there!!

Cool, Belle. My daughter, son-in-law & my granddaughter will be there Sep 12 - 20. Granddaughter's birthday is Sep 14, & we already have an apptmt for her at Bibbity Bobbity Boutique for that day.
Getting the FD will help us a LOT - save close to $1500. woohoo!

Free Dining...

I am hoping that they extend it as well...

These dates do not help us with our trip but this is a sign that things are headed in the right direct for us...we don't go till December but have our reservations already booked with the regular dining plan....we currently are reserved a Moderate Resort for now, but if the Free dining ends up flopping we may bunker down at a Deluxe again and make it work...

it was cramped quarters but definitely doable again if we have to.

Oh the things we do for our Dining Fix

So people have said that as long as there is room availability for the set aside rooms, you can get the discount. How is that done?

I want to go for a week, so does that mean there has to be availability in the block of rooms each night for those seven nights, otherwise it will tell me they are sold out, or does it go by check-in day, so only so many rooms a day for check-in get the discount, and then it doesn't matter if one person stays 3 days while another stays 2 weeks?

That's great the Sept. dates for FD are out. Can you combine the FD deal with a room discount or have to pick one or the other? The dates I plan to go fall in "Value Season 2" anyhow so I think the FD would be the better discount.

Does anyone know if Disney Visa cardholders get any additional perks to room discounts during the value season? I looked on the visa rewards site but didn't see anything. I am aware if you use your card you get 0% financing for up to 6 months which is nice..but I had heard somewhere Visa cardholders get a special discount on rooms, NOT sure if this is true or not. Anyone know?

Each resort will be allotted a certain number of free dining rooms under the promo. For example, lets say, Pop Century has 100 standard rooms available for the FD promo. If you call the first day the discount is available you will most likely have no issue booking or adding the discount to an existing reservation. But lets say you call 2 weeks later and they say they are sold out of standard rooms, they may have availability in a preferred room, but those could be booked up too and you may have to change resorts for availability. You can also have them check different check in or check out dates to look for availability, if your original dates are sold out.

No, you can not stack discounts.

Disney Visa discount promos for WDW are not any different than general public discounts, the Disney Visa holders just get a 3 day jump on the general public.
