Ok thanks! Must have been one of the many rumors I have read on the boards.

Your reasoning is pretty much exactly why I hesitated to get one myself. I've replaced my Visa with this one (it was with a local bank that I'm no longer near anyway). I agree though, a Disney AmEx would be fantastic (but I've gotten some good deals on the Swan/Dolphin booking through Amex for what it's worth)

Hooray!

Called this morning at 8:45 MST and had almost no wait. I was able to book five standard view rooms at POFQ for September 19-29th. All but one room in our party has a Disney Visa so my parent's picked up their deposit. We'd love to go in November instead, but since free dining for the rest of the year doesn't look very promising we're going to go with this.
Thanks for the heads up on this promotion!

Disney doesn't release the October - December free dining dates annually until around July, sometimes August. Disney will still need to fill resort rooms during select historical low crowd weeks in Oct - Dec and I haven't seen anything that would lead me to believe they won't release some FD dates for that timeframe.

The dates are those.

I heard that prices for the tickets are increasing this friday. I haven't made a reservation because I plan to call on the 9th of may and get the free dining plan. My question is this: How can I get a hold of the tickets and still get the dining plan? Do I buy the tickets only in advance? Of must I buy the tickets at the same time while I make my hotel reservations?
Thanks!
If I am understanding you correctly, if you book a package with tickets on May 9, you will get the CURRENT ticket prices. The prices will be locked in.

I hope that's what you meant!

FD for CR Std View Garden Wing?

Does anyone know if there are any standard view garden wing rooms available at the Contemporary with free dining? I'm holding my breath on this one.....
Thanks!

I still don't have it, but already booked. Did see it on the website a little bit ago. I've been known to get the email a DAY after I booked.

Just 6 hours late, not too bad for Chase Visa! Not!

You would think a multi billion company like Chase would have some one to update their site and inform their customers in a more timely manner. Ridiculous.

I don't even get an email telling me about it. Can I go somewhere on their site to change that?

I haven't received one either for this offer but I do receive them sometimes and not other times. Chase just isn't good about getting the promo emails out to everyone.

I've tried and I still hardly ever get the emails and we have been card holders for many years. When I do occasionally get a discount email from them it's usually after its gone public. Good thing I don't count on them for timely updates :-)

The Visa website is showing free dining for 5 night/6 day stays. Has anyone received free dining for a shorter stay?

All free dining promos have a 3 night minimum and 14 night maximum stay. That 5/6 verbiage is just for advertising purposes.
