Hi! and Thanks!
It's usually a couple weeks or less. There have been times when the leak was only 24 hours before release. I know you're all in pain from all the waiting but don't get stressed just yet.

Good point--I also know this to be true as we were able to get FD with a Saturday check-in the week before Thanksgiving in 2011, but that date was only up a few hours when Disney moved it back to Thursday. We were just in the right place at the right time. They can and do move dates around even after GP release.

What?!?? Wow. Pm the book title. Lol. Thanks!!!

Well, thanks to the SW fare sale last week, we rolled the dice (and figured using a calculator) and got airfare for 12/4-12/10. Using my husbands points we got round trip airfare (non stops both ways from SAT to MCO) for 4 for $591. THEN we transferred $$$$ and bought and paid things off, around this past year on our disney visa and have $493 worth of Disney Rewards Points to use so we booked at PO-R. Even if FD doesn't happen for that last day of check in (as rumored), we can down grade to ASMovies and use the $493 to pay for food. Plus found out with his remaining points from SW, we can rent a car that week for Free. So, either way this will be a way less expensive trip than last ones. It will be even CHEAPER, IF the FD does pan out for 12/4. Fingers crossed and

Yep. That's when we are going and also got the round trip air fair. Hoping to get a FD pin to make it even cheaper.

FD Pins

While I know 'what' a PIN is and 'where' to find them, should I request a vaca planning DVD in hopes of receiving a FD one attached to it? I haven't ordered a vaca planning DVD in years. And what other mailings should I look for or order in hopes of seeing a FD pin attached? Thanks in advance!

Registering, ordering and anywhere else you can put your name, address, email, other contact info can increase your odds of getting a pin code. However, the mailing list generator for those pin codes is about as random as random ever gets. Good luck!

I ordered the planning DVD, have MyDisneyExperience setup on their website, am a Disney Visa card holder, etc. and I haven't gotten any pins. I think it may have more to do with previous trips in their system and just luck of the draw.

Hi, I'm new to the boards and this free dining thing. Our reservations are already booked for Oct 15th - 22nd. If they offer free dining from the 19th on can I still get it? Or at least for the days that are during the promotion? Just wondering. Thanks!

No. You must check in during a date free dining is offered.
