Just have to say that I am officially obsessed with DISboards! I am doing the happy happy happy happy happy dance for our stay 09/16 thru 09/30!!

I'll still be doing the dance even if these FD dates don't pan out...

BUT...I cannot even fathom getting this deal since I had never heard about it before seeing the posts here!!

YAY!!

I too am shocked and am waiting to find out I have it wrong, or I won't qualify or something.

I've got the room booked at a discount price, and was going to buy tickets this summer (waiting to see if a FL res discount came out). But if this is all real I will definitely switch to the package deal.

It's real. Once Danny25 say it, it is definite. Black and Disney411 go by historical data and make very accurate predictions, but danny brings inside info, so it is for sure now. Fingers still crossed for November. Only a couple more months!!! Hope the Disney gods bring me something decent.

The October-December free dining dates are usually announced in July, sometimes August.

The telephone CM's vary greatly I think. You have some that have worked every day for years and are incredibly connected and then you have ones that just work part time that DW pulls in for busy times. Case in point, our day 180 fell just a couple of days before the release of the summer promo. The first CM I spoke with to make ADR's said this was her first day working in a really long time. And I believe her because she could not remember how to make ADR's or even her log in information. It took 30 min's to make 3 ADR's. Luckily I am a very patient person. In addition, all 4 CM's that I spoke to told me I could make ADR's online 180 +10 days out. One even transferred me to an IT guy to work me through it. As soon as he got on the phone he apologized and said I was correct. You can only book day 180 online. So, if you day 180 was on a Monday, you could only book Monday. And the next day come back to book for only that day, etc.

Everyone would get the free dining as long as at least one person is there to check-in on the 27th. This may not be possible for you and you would have to do the math to make sure the food savings on free dining would be in excess of the cost of the new plane ticket for the adult arriving one day early, and of course the cost of one extra night at the hotel.
Free dining ends the 25th not the 27th.

Required to Physically Check-in?

Question - We have a reservation @ AoA Nemo 9/27 to 10/7. Due to a work project my husband absolutely can't leave before the 27th and I really don't want to drive 10 hours with 3 kids by myself (with the plan he'd fly in Friday). Can I have a reservation begining 9/25 but not physically check-in until 9/27 to take advantage of the free dining? We'd out out better paying for 2 nights we're aren't there than paying for either the DDP or food out-of-pocket.

You must pay for the 25th AND check in before the computers roll over around 6ish the morning of Sept 26. If you show up after that, your reservation will be cancelled.

Okay - thanks! It was worth a try! Do you thing I'd run into any problems if I fly down, check-in, but we don't use any of the park tickets and the room isn't used until 9/27?
