It must be booked before you check out of the resort (no exceptions), and you can only book more than one room if you have more than one adult in your current room. The deposit would be the normal $200 for a FD stay. You do not have to stay on the same resort for the future trip, and they can be modified later, but it usually involves being transferred to guest services because regular CMs can't access the BB availability. If there is a BB, it will be property wide in terms of who can book. If you don't see any information in your welcome packet, just call ext. 8844 from your room and see if there is an offer available. That is also the number to call to book the BB.
Are all rooms offered the BB or just select? I know we got one in 2011 and had no idea what it was and tossed it

This time I plan on taking advantage of it so I won't be doing this again! LOL

That is what happened to me! I already booked Sept FD and have gotten 2 PINS and I will probably never see one again. Those are my first and my last, that's why they are burning a hole in my pocket!!

Me too but it has been a few months for me! How do you get on it again?

The one thing that keeps me going is that I'm going to WDW regardless of free dining. Now whether or not I get to stay on-site for the first time depends on that announcement but at least I will be at Disney World. Some of my ADR's may have to be cancelled if there is no fd and we may have to "eat on the cheap" but I'm gonna see MICKEY anyway. Now, with that said, I will be really disappointed if we don't get the visa/gp offer because I have my heart set on POFQ and can picture my family walking the grounds, riding the boat to DTD and soaking up rays at the pool. Come on Disney, put us out of our misery already! The next 5 weeks will be t-o-r-t-u-r-e!

It's a good point. Once we decide we are going then regardless we go. It is hard though to not sit and hope your balance goes down with FD (we always do DDP when we go even when not free).

My mother was emailed a pin today. I wonder if there is some way I can use it for my wife and I.

I am not sure that we could even do the BB with my kids school schedule. We have been on year round all this time but next fall (late summer) I will have the boys on traditional since the oldest starts high school... and my daughter on another schedule. Fun times!! Our only travel times might be Christmas breaks and January.

Now, I keep checking the Disney cruise website for Dec 2014...Someone needs to take me off these boards...

I posted this on another thread too, but wanted to make sure you all saw it. The PIN is not dead. My cousin got it today in her email, and nothing has changed with it. Still all the same dates. Good luck and keep calling.

Is your mom going with you? Other than that, you would have to have the same address & name.

All rooms will be offered the bounceback if one is available, but there will be exclusions as to what you can book with it (like no LM rooms at AoA, for example). Also, many times they do not list the values as being included in the offer, but when you call to book, you will find that they are included, so always ask before you think you can't use it.

People may get pixie dusted with some other type offer, but a BB is set in stone. You cannot book it unless you are a current guest, and the dates cannot be outside of the offer to use it (other than your trip extending past the end of an eligible discount like checking in on the last FD date). This is a completely different situation than using someone else's PIN to get a deal.

I can't tell you how many times people have posted that they didn't book the BB while they were there and tried to book it after they got home. They are always told that it is not possible. That's why I always suggest calling ext. 8844 before you leave even if you don't see any offer in your room or welcome packet. Once you check out, you are out of luck.

I worry about that too. So....I called again...I know, I know, I thought I had given it up but had a brief flare of hope when I'd saw more had been sent out. Nope, nothing. No emails either. Hopes dashed again And really worried about GP offer now. Is this many waves of PINS normal?
