2013 MNSSHP dates: September 10, 13, 17, 20, 24, 27, 29 October 3, 4, 6, 10, 11, 14, 17, 18, 20, 22, 24, 25, 27, 29, 31 November 1

2013 MVMCP dates: November 8, 11, 14, 15, 17, 21, 22 December 1, 3, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 13, 15, 17, 19, 20

Thank you for this info! Also, I love your predicted FD dates! We will be there Dec. 15-21 and we're planning a large group trip. With FD, we will all be able to stay on site together. Fingers crossed

We were originally booked for like October 7-15th or somewhere around there. Then I figured that with Disney cutting back on Free Dining, we'd be better off moving back to September, since the chances of FD are much better in September. Looks like I made a good call on that one.

We are now booked for September 20-27th, staying at POFQ. This will be our second time staying there and we love it! We've done 5 other trips total, 2 stays were at Pop Century, and 2 were off-site during Cheer championships in March. Our first trip was off-site because I didn't do my homework and didn't know about Free Dining (Sept 2008).

Be sure to have a backup resort, since French quarter is one of the smaller ones.

I have to say watching these threads I never get anything done at work anymore!! There is such great info here though, thank you everyone!
So, if I am understanding correctly, the Disney TA gets notified before hand on the dining package? So since my TA is contracted through Disney she should be aware of the promo this week?
Also, may be the wrong spot to ask this, but since get so much good info on this thread from such knowledgable people, this being the first trip I have booked on my own, is there anything I should know? I've been to WDW many many times, but have never booked or really gone as an adult. Last time I went I was 20 yrs old and it was paid for me and I just enjoyed myself, never planned anything. If anyone has any good advice, that would be great!!
Thanks again for the great info! I should delete the dis app from my phone!

That would be sweet indeed, but alas, I don't think it's in the cards for this week.

Yes, TAs get some notice so they are prepared when it launches.

And there's lots of great info, but where to start is the bigger question. What kind of information are you looking for?

Great! And I don't really know. I have been planning for the last year, and since our arrival date is only 5 months away, I have gone into "mega planning mode"! Lol..with two kids that have never been away from home, Im trying to think if anything and everything I guess I don't have one certain question, and I'm sure ill be back with more! Just looking for some insider tips! Put it this way, if something comes to mind that you wouldn't have known as a first timer, pls let me know!! Haha...I know that's still very open...

Riverside participates in FD, correct? If so then we'll head there. But it shouldn't be a problem, just like last year when I called and had our Dining package turned into FD.

Absolutely, sounds like a plan.

Lol, the other thread is just now posting about TAs receiving their information for free dining. See Pluto, you got to be first today....and by quite a while at that.

My kids too big as he says for character breakfasts and he is a very picky eater so trying to find ts resteraunts are tough. Whould you happen to know if the rain forest cafe takes the dining plan. I saw a review and that person mentioned that they did not.
Both Rainforest Cafes and T-Rex are both now on the plan, as of January 2012.

Weekend party nights are always going to be more crowded, but with those being the last two dates until after Thanksgiving, they will both probably sell out or close to it.
