I think I missed something!

Good Morning All!

I think I missed the announcement...is there a FD offer coming out soon for extended dates; and if so, what do I do to get it? We already have a res for Pop 11.29-12.7. Any help is appreciated!

Good Morning! No, you have not missed anything. Disney Visa free dining is expected to go live on Monday, July 29, and general public on Thursday Aug. 1. However, for the first time in several years, the days following Thanksgiving were not in the "leaked" dates; but anything can happen. The dates right now include up to Nov. 23 and then do not pick back up again until Dec. 12. A lot of disappointed people, but Disney can change things, so do check back here, or give Disney a call on Monday or Thursday, just to make sure. Good luck!!!!

It would be nice if the changed things......I am not happy that they blacked out dates from 11/3 to 11/10. Would have to change my stay from 5 nights to 9 nights to be able to get the free dining offer.

You would have to check in on Nov 11 to get FD & would only be available for stay after that date not before. Could you switch your vacation to start on the 11th?

I believe you have to book with 2day passes and upgrade.

Am I the only one trying to figure out what to do if I can't get FD for the resort I want???? I want POFQ and I will take any room category. If I can't get that than I was thinking about POR but I don't really want to stay there. POR royal rooms could be cool I guess but I am afraid the walk will be too far to everything. Preferred is already sold out for my dates. Then I was thinking a split stay between WL and the Dolphin (free with points) because I can't afford WL for the whole trip.

And I can call at 7 but I have to be done by 7:30 and if not then I can't call again until 8:30.....have to bring the kids to 2 different camps and they cannot be late because one has to catch a bus! AHHHHHHHHH! I need support!

I will also be getting an annual pass. I wonder when those rates will be released and if they have blackout dates?

We will miss out on this one. Booked a Disney Cruise almost two years ago for 11/30 - 12/7. We are staying at POR before the cruise but doesn't look like any of our dates will work, FD or RO. Boo Hoo!! Maybe there will be some Disney Magic somewhere

sorry if this has been answered- couldn't read all 114 pages, lol....

So I was wondering if you guys think we will be able to book check in on Oct. 23rd and then get the deal for the length of stay? In the past, as long as you checked in before the black-out begins, you were safe.

Can anyone speak to this?

As long as your check in day is on a Free Dining date, then yes, you get Free Dining for your entire stay.

Same here. I've got 6 different options, if my first choice isn't available!
