Thanks for your help
FD is based solely on your check in date. No other dates matter. As long as you check in on a covered date, you are eligible to receive free dining for up to 14 nights.

As has been mentioned before, it's a good idea to have a back up resort/room category in mind in case the one you want has already sold out for the FD offer. If you call in early on the 1st day of the offer, you can sometimes get a CM who is not up to date on the available offers and will tell you there is no FD offer. Don't take that 'no' for an answer. Ask them to check again, ask their supervisor, whatever so you don't have to call back and wait in the telephone queue again. Good luck!!
Thank you for all the great info!! Will be on the phone 7:00am on the 29th!

Okay complex question for a friend. She has a trip booked in sept with free dining. She used a lot of gift cards to pay for it and her final payment is due tomorrow. She would like to switch to November if and when the extension for free dining comes out. So if she re books later how will they handle the gift cards? Will they just take the full amount and put it toward the new package or will they have to credit each card back and do it all over.

Moving dates will just be a modification to her existing package. The money paid should not be affected.

It would just transfer...but...if she's within 45 days she will be charged for the change more than likely. (Depending on the value/amount - up to $200 I believe )

She will not be charged just to change dates. Only if she downgrades her package.

If you cancel within 45 days, there is a $200 fee.
If there is a downgrade in package cost within 45 days, there is a $50 fee.
If you change your dates and the package stays the same, there is no fee.

Thanks for the info. It would actually be an upgrade (from value to moderate) so more money. I have done the same within 45 days and was not charged. She is just worried because it was paid for with gift cards.

Gift cards shouldn't be an issue. I had mine transfer without a problem.

Any gift cards used for trip payments should always be kept until the trip is complete, even if they have a zero balance left on them. If something happens and the trip needs to be cancelled, they will refund to the original form of payment.

Silly question about Disney Visa Card

We currently do not have a disney visa card but my parents do. They ususally travel with us but are not at this time. Would we be able to apply the free dining for November to our reservation if we use their card to make a payment?

Thanks so much.
