Ya if Danny and black have announced it, you can rest assure that is the promo. But hopefully Disney has something in store/in mind for the end of August and thus why it's excluded. Or maybe this is truly their way of showing they are cutting FD back, it hasn't been offered as a promo at all in 2013, so this could all be signs of indication for the future of this promo, less dates. Who knows! Hope something comes out for late August folks though! Good luck

Another theory I have is that the DVC season is a "Dream" season at that time. I know alot of DVC members were complaining of not being able to get free dining for thier stays. In my opinion it would be harder to sell me on a DVC membership with all the discounts and free dining available. Just my opinion.

DVC members might be complaining that they can't get ADRs, but FREE Dining is never offered for DVC.

Yes, fd is never offered to DVC members, which in my opinion makes it harder for Disney to sell a DVC membership. It may also be harder for the DVC members to rent out thier points during FD. I am just trying to come up with a reason no FD in August.

That's what the complaints are about. They complain that they are not eligible. Though, I think most of those complaints are from people who rent points and then get upset when a free dining deal comes out and they can't use it.

There are some large conventions in town at the end of August. Also, the bookings from the FD bounceback might have been good enough that they didn't see the need to offer it to the public this year.

Oh nuts. We were probably going to book the last week of August to 9/3, but only if we got FD, which I thought was a lock since it's been offered for the LAST 5 YEARS!!!!!!! Seriously Disney?????

How do conventions usually impact the park?

I am also quite disappointed by this news. I hope that there is something in store for the end of August for those of us hoping to go then. Maybe some limited time magic discount just for those two weeks. Here's hoping. Good luck to everyone.

I really don't think its the conventions, last year there was a HUGE Tea Party convention there that week and free dining was still offered. I am also not sure all the bouncebacks picked the last week in august, but you never know.

Orlando is a convention capital. There are conventions all year long all through out Orlando at any given week. I dont think it will impact the park any different.
