And, we eat a lot od TS meals...it's DH's one request so I need to keep him happy so I can keep going So, QS won't cut it for us Thanks for the answer!

Not sure if it is possible for your budget but you can always stay there and pay the difference to upgrade to the DDP. We are staying at ASMo and paying the difference to get the DDP.

Saying that some of these CM are clueless about FD when it comes out, but is it safe to say that of some of them don't know about it, it should only be the day that FD comes out for DV?
I would think that they would all already know about it by the time it is released to the GP?
I just wonder if I should be prepared (or, maybe my TA) to push the issue if a CM says there is no FD.. I know this is probably a silly question to ask, just trying to cover it all!

You would be surprised at how little the CM's are told until right before a new promotion comes out. There are severe penalties if a CM is found to have leaked information early.

Actually, if you're upgrading 4 people from QS to DDP for a Value, it's probably about the same price as a moderate. When we priced it out for our family of four it made no sense to stay at an AS and upgrade. Upgrade is about $18 per person x 4 = $72 per day. Came out to only about $100 difference for the whole 6 nights to go moderate instead.

I know everyone says we will know when they release free dining for visa because it will be all over the boards, but how do the people talking about it on the boards find out so they know that morning? The visa reward site, or do they just call every morning until a CM says yes it has been released? Because according to a lot of people's experience, many CMs do not know. I know it's usually three days prior, but do people check somehow to make sure it's not already released earlier? This is my first post so forgive me if I have done anything incorrectly

Yea. The first few callers that morning will be in for a slow booking while they get into the swing of things.

We are also a family of 5 where only one of our kids is still a 'kid' in Disney pricing - no matter how I slice it, POR always comes out the least expensive. Even when splitting rooms with my parents - with the upgrade cost of 4 adults, the difference between the two are too negligible to make a difference.

So how will I find the FD PIN on May 9th? Do you think it'll be posted on this board at 7am EST?

Okay, the 2 MVMCP the week before Thanksgiving last year sold out. I would assume a lot of people bought those tickets so the could experience the party since it does not show during Thanksgiving week.

There have been a ton of questions about crowds on MNSSHP and MVMCP nights. Generally the week nights for MNSSHP are going to be less crowded then weekend nights - locals come in on the weekends and make the crowds larger. There is little chance that the September MNSSHP nights will sell out, but weekends will have higher crowds.

The October MNSSHP week nights will also be less crowded than weekend nights. But in October there is going to be a higher chance of weekends selling out and as you get closer to Halloween there are going to be a lot of sell out nights. Halloween night will ALWAYS sell out and November 1 probably will too.

There are not as many MVMCP dates and more of them will sell out. The majority of the November dates did sell out last year. The early December MVMCP weeknights should have slightly less crowds than weekends. The last week of the MVMCP will all most likely sell out.

We are staying at the Beach Club October 14 through the 18th, does anyone know if Columbus Day week has been blocked out in the past?

I read in a past post that May 6th would be the first day to call for Disney Visa card holders... is that the consensus?

I'm surprised they offer free dining during the Food and Wine Fest.



...I just read the OP, looks like the dates are only going out to September. Good luck to all you September people, I will continue waiting with the other October people.
