I'm one of those anxiously awaiting to see if the offer goes public since I didn't get a pin and I'm just trying to figure what are the chances. I'm thinking if they've never done this before maybe they only had a few rooms to fill and doing pins for a select few would take care of that? I know nobody can tell me for sure but July is such a long way off and the suspense is killing me!
They have sent out free dining pins for the October - December timeframe every year since 2008 and then released almost the exact same dates to the general public since 2009. The current fall and winter pin code FD dates should be released this summer, probably July.

You can make those changes to your reservation up to 72 hours before check in with no penalties - they like you to upgrade and spend more money with them. If your downgrade after the 45 day mark, you would be charged a $50 fee, but you would not lose your discount.

That week is blacked out due to Jersey Week, so unfortunately out of luck. Your check IN dare must fall with in the FD promo dates to have it applied to your entire stay.

Most of the current fall and winter pin code FD dates will drop this summer for the general public, but I would not look for any August dates to be on included in that promo.

In all the years we have been to Disney, I have only gotten an email pin code twice. So random!

Creatively thinking.... what happens if you book a vacation with free dining, but for some reason don't show up for the first day of the package. Is your whole package cancelled? Or... if you pay for that first day (even though you aren't there), would your package remain the same?

I'm not exactly PLANNING on missing that first day, but if our drive just gets too long and we can't quite make it.... what would be the consequence if we booked (and paid for) a package that started on the last day of free dining, but we didn't arrive until the following day?

Pin codes all have different numbers and are name specific and non-transferrable.

Call your resort and let them know you won't make it and request for them to not get rid of your room. My reservation has a note already on it that we might not arrive til possibly after 4am

All free dining promos, whether they be pin code, visa or general public, have always had a 3 night minimum and and 14 night maximum booking requirement. Any different verbiage you see in print advertising or in emails or on the WDW site are only for advertising purposes or pricing examples.

I agree! Some of the misinformation they give out through that chat is ridiculously wrong and very inconsistent.

You would have to check in before 6 am on the following morning or your entire reservation would be cancelled and would be non-refundable.

You have until 6 am until the reservation would be cancelled.

I never got either.

Closest I ever get are the FL resident deals.

I've verified with disney and im safe. Been told by multiple CMs even the resort itself.

I believe I'll trust a supervisor over this issue.

Me too. I will likely check one million times between now and July in hopes that my pin is just lost in cyber space. LOL
