One of the numbers you can use is 407-WDW-MAGIC.

Bounce back and free dinning

I was also wondering about this bounce back and F/D. I am looking at going to WDW next year after Labor Day for 8 nights with my family. Would it be better to go down there this year for 2-3 days by myself so I can book the bounce back for F/D for next year? My sister told me not to because she thinks it would be a waste of my time and money if they didn't offer the bounce back for next year. I am confused with what to do. I need to find some way of saving money whether with the F/D or R/O discounts. Advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Maybe because they don't read the Disboards like we do?? Just a thought

If you're not picky about hotels, I'd wait until closer and see what other people post on here regarding the bounce back offers (if they are offered). It's an expensive risk to take.

My res. is for POR MYW + dining and that on the 9th I can call back and apply the free dining discount to it, and then she told me how much it would save off the quoted res. price.
I confirmed that I could apply the FD to my trip starting 8/26 and she said yes that FD is running from sometime mid August until Sept. 28 (I think that was the ending date).

I'm going out to dinner now, but I think I'll call back later and ask again just to be sure.
This is an interesting bit of news ;-)

And I never get the Disney Visa emails for discount promos and we've had the card for at least 7 years. The info will be ALL OVER these boards tomorrow and if will be up on the Visa site sometime tomorrow morning.

Bounce Backs are not a given...we just got back last week and recv'd no offer. I also called and they didn't have anything for us.
We're doing "OOP Dining" in December this year, as I know there won't be FD during our stay, but sure hope that other folks are able to catch it before Christmas!

AOA folks are going to have a little bit harder of a time, as no other resort really compares on price and capacity.
You should never have to cancel or rebook your package for free dining, they should simply modify the reservation and add the discount and credit you the difference - very easy and a lot faster than canceling, refunding and rebooking.

I think they only booked the room.

But IF, and I know that's a big IF, the free dining is extended to that period, should I be calling tomorrow as a Disney Visa holder? Or would it be on the 9th? I'm getting confused!!! Guess I try tomorrow and if not, try again on the 9th. Is the 9th actually the Visa date or the GP date?

I just want it booked and done already!
The DV FD offer is supposed to be tomorrow and the GP DV offer is supposed to be May 9.

Also, stupid question, but what are the dates that are in question for tomorrow?
Disney reservations will be applying those discounts first thing tomorrow morning whether they are on the Disney Visa site or not. In the early years of FD you did need the codes and they were usually leaked here the night before. Mousesavers used to leak codes early, maybe they are cracking down on TA leaks. I did notice that there have been a few posts from people saying their TA actually did confirm this info today.

So maybe this is another detail about the offer that we don't know!

Don't want to start any rumors and this PURELY crazy speculation on my part, but that would be so NICE!!!!
That's actually a really insightful observation and not totally put of the question. In 2008 they had select free dining dates in Oct - Dec that were ONLY for DV holders and never went out for the general public - that instance is the sole reason we keep the stupid Disney Visa. The next year, 2009, was the first year they offered a general public FD offer for the October - December timeframe.

Very interesting . . . Can't wait to see how this plays out tomorrow :-)

Isn't that too many letters/numbers? Can't you only have 10 numbers?
