Thanks Wendy. One more question for now. Have the ADR stated booking for those dates yet?

Yes. For September 28th, the 180 day mark was April 1.

September ADRs opened up for booking in March. You can book 180 days out from check in.

For some reason, I was thinking the Free Dining ran through 9/28, but it actually ends on 9/25 - just wanted to be sure you saw that. A couple of people corrected me, but, as fast as this thread moves, you might not have seen it!

So, if your nephew & his family are checking in on 9/28, they won't be eligible for the free dining.

Is there any way they can change their dates?

It's been a while! And, even then, our 40% discount was from a PIN code we received through email (the only PIN code we've ever received actually!) & not a general public discount.

However, if there is a 30% room only discount, I still plan to compare the 30% discount savings to the free dining savings. For our family (2 adults, 2 "Disney adults," & 1 child), free dining is probably going to save us more, but you never know. It probably also depends on the resort as well as to which is a better savings.

My travel agent said that in the past with other promotions, in order to qualify for the discount at Port Orleans Riverside, you need to be in a preferred room rather than a standard room.

Danny25 or whoever else might know... Do you know if this is true for the upcoming Free Dining offer for September? I am trying to weigh out my options for keeping my current reservation at AoA and paying to upgrade to the regular dining plan or switch over to Port Orleans Riverside. We are a family of 5 so have to have a room that accomodates 5.

Aside from that, does anyone know if the Royal Rooms at POR have a murphy/trundle bed in them? If I have to get a preferred room, those rooms sure look nice compared to the others!

Not sure if this is any real measure tool but according to travelplans.com the dates we are going (9/7 to 9/15) have nearly doubled in the crowd level predictions since we booked less than 2 months ago. I go during that time for the low crowd level so I am not happy about the increase but it really is great for Disney.

I've done free dining every year it's been offered and stayed at Riverside many times. I've never had to stay in a particular room to qualify.

Wow! That's crazy. We've went mid-September in 2008, 2010 & 2012. That's my favorite time to go too because crowds are so low but gradually it has increased with each time. We went mid-September in 2000 as well and crowds were so low that we'd be on a ride and it would return to the load/un-load area and many times they'd ask if wanted to just stay on and ride again. It was a ghost town back then. I see why they started offering deals to bring people in. I just hope the deals don't end altogether.

Did you mean the touringplans website? travelplans doesn't come up for me.

Your travel agent is incorrect. I have stayed in both POR and POFQ Standard Rooms on FD.

Sorry to crash, but is there usually an offer like this in November?

No, the Royal Rooms do not have the trundle bed. Only the Alligator Bayou section of the resort has those.

Thanks! We booked it through RCI trading our timeshare for the room, so we are not paying the rack rate for the room. We will definitely be getting MYW tickets for at least 4 days. So I guess I will need to go back through our travel agent to find out if we can get the free dining? or do I just ask Disney? Also, do we do ADR through Disney? And now I'm worried that we didn't get in on time with it.
