It could pick back up on September 28, but they must be expecting pretty big crowds for the first weekend of the F & W Festival.

The 18th is our check in day and we are going either way, but I'm just curious as to why you think it won't be until the 20th. I know the bounceback offer starts on the 20th, but they don't usually mirror the free dining dates. Any thoughts??
Well, I think the second and third weeks are going to be booked pretty solid. I think a lot of people will be exiting/checking out on October 19, so I think they will need more incentive to fill rooms starting on the 20th, possibly starting on the 19th. I think there will still be a lot of folks still in the resorts on the 18th. That's just my speculation, I would love to be wrong, and for your sake, I hope I am :-)

There is usually an FD offer that ends the Thursday before Thanksgiving, so usually if you can check in by that date, you can get the discount applied through Thanksgiving week. That's a huge discount during a holiday week.

It's about fifteen if I drive straight, which I have before but prefer not to.

You're very welcome. We will keep an ear out for any free dining dates and as soon as one of us knows, you'll know.....without having to wait until that night.

Cheers!!!

Yup. I'm still trying to decide whether to go on the 10th as the first day, or the 13th since its Friday the 13th. Decisions decisions but I think I'm settling on Friday. After all it's not like I have anything besides a drive home on Saturday lol.

I think it would just be cheaper to for a fewer cheaper meals then to spend over $1000 to upgrade! We definately dont want to take away from park time! :-)
Glad you figured out what will work for you! Sometimes it does work to pay for a couple meals out of pocket. You must be planning a long trip for it to cost $1000 more to upgrade which is fabulous.

Am I correct in thinking they said there is going to be a limited time magic event on Friday the 13TH with the villains and late hours? If so, I am thinking maybe at DHS? That might really draw the crowds away from the party on Sept 13TH. But I guess you wouldn't know details until much closer to time.

ETA; Here is the info. "The villains are taking over Hollywood Studios for Friday the 13th all the way through the 13th hour (1:00am). The night of mischief will include villainous dance parties and more." If you are not interested in that, I would think the MNSSHP will have low crowds, because many people will be.
