Has anyone researched how often in the past Disney has released free dining to the public for the same dates as pin codes?

The last email one said and I quote "Since you've been here before, we wanted to make it easy for you to come back and see us again." We would've long booked before this, and maybe they are trying to entice us.
That could be one formula they use. However, we were there in Oct. In late Nov I received a pin for FD for Jan - Mar dates and RO for various dates ranging from Jan - end of Sept. It would seem based on your experience and mine that they have a variety of ways to see who gets pins.

For those of you going in Sept and doing MNSSHP, what do you dress your kids in? My son wants to be something that has him covered head to toe! That will be great in Ohio in Oct but not Sept in Florida. Any suggestions?

My DGD is going to dress up as Sleeping Beauty. I'm making the queen costume for my DD, King Stefan costume for DSIL & Flora for myself. I modified the queen & Flora costumes to have short sleeves instead of long & chose lightweight cotton fabric to help decrease the "OMG it's HOT" factor. (I have a really nice Malificent costume already, but it's made of velour so .. yeah, that's why I'm making new costumes.)
Are there any modifications you can make to DS costume or pieces to take off so he won't be too hot? Other than that or convincing him to choose different costume, I would suggest having a t-shirt for him to change into if he gets too hot.

Hopefully they will just forget about the PINs and go directly to Visa/GP free dining.
We received PIN on May 15 and by the time we booked last week for Dec 4-15, there was no availability at any Values and only the cabins left in Moderate. I am excited about the cabins but really what is the point of offering so many PINs if people can't use them.

Pop Warner starts Dec 7, they are taking a lot of value & moderate rooms. That's why the offer is not good for arrivals from Dec 5 to Dec 14. Your dates are right in the middle of that.

Have you seen the Mousesavers page?

http://www.mousesavers.com/historica...ort-discounts/

Very useful when trying to figure out what you could expect in the future. Of course nobody knows what Disney will actually do...

Keep in mind that mousesavers only lists the general timeframe of the discounts and their release dates. While it is good to see when deals are historically released, it is not a good predictor of which dates will be covered because they do not include the blackout dates in their info.

I totally agree. We are going in October as well. We don't have too much left to pay. However, we are hoping for some type of promotion. I don't want to wait for my money to be returned to me. I rather have it in my pocket until I know that I have to give it away. LOL

Oh, did you purchase a DP in hopes that'll you'll get it for free? I didn't get one, if I don't get FD I'm not going to do a DP.

Awww, poop on a stick...what's 'Pop Warner' and how does that affect park attendance? I'm checking in on the 4th, in hopes of snagging the 'check in last day, get that promo for up to 14 days after, for your stay' FD.
**Grumbles**
I knew this trip was too good to be true. Le Sigh...
