Free Dining Dates for Fall 2013 (with PIN)

Here's the email I just got for FREE DINING for select dates from August through December!!! Sorry, the PIN is non-transferrable, but hopefully these will be the dates available to the general public starting in August.


OK...so here are the dates listed in the email:
For arrivals most nights 8/25-10/2/13, 10/18-10/31/13, 11/11-11/23/13, 11/30-12/4/13, and 12/15-12/22/13.

I sure hope so. We are scheduled to check in on 11/11 - I am so hoping for free dining so some sort of discount. Keeping my fingers crossed

Over the years I have gotten many postcards and then emails from Disney Destinations, but I have gotten NOTHING from them since last fall. I wonder if they took us off the list because we go every year. I hope not. We will still go, but we will have to shorten our trip by a couple of days and cut out a few nice meals if we don't get some kind of discount (hoping for free dining!)

This PIN has been out now for about 3 weeks or so. The second wave has been going out for a couple of days. I called Monday and had nothing, but yesterday I called and it was there! So relieved! If it goes public, it will likely be in July, but some have heard a June 17th date, so it could really be anytime between Mid-June-early August. Good luck to everyone waiting! Hopefully it will be released to the public soon!

I have had the week after Thanksgiving discount for the last three years; it has usually gone public sometime in late June.

Sadly, since I am going in two weeks, I won't be going that time period this year, but I did get the summer discount which worked well for me, since I paid for the room in its entirety.

We are going August 26-31. Hopefully we will get the pin, turns out I had an account with them for years but under the wrong email address.

I am crossing my fingers and toes that we get one for November as well. If those dates are correct, that is right within our dates!

We just took our first trip last year, but I heard from a friend that's been going for years that she hadn't received hers either. Don't know how they select the who gets the code during a particular wave, but I hope y'all hear something soon! From what I've read on the boards, these dates eventually get released to the public, they go through a round of Disney Visa card holders and previous guests, then the public offer.

These dates seem to mirror the ones offered last year, but the window at the beginning of October ended on Thursday the 4th last year. We were planning to check in on Wednesday the 2nd this year anyways, so it works perfectly for us.

BTW, is there a limit on how many times you can use the offer, say October then December?

Thumbs up What was that sound?

It was a PIN dropping into my mailbox today! Snail mail arrived with the same dates/restrictions as the email version...barkeep, an order of pixie dust for the house!

Saw this, and have to call now because I'm such a panic-person, LOL.

Edit: Strike out for me. Bummer again!
