C'mon October discounts!

I've been lucky, in a sense, and have gotten a number of PIN offers through the years. Unfortunately, I've never been able to use any of them!

I would love to go to the Food & Wine Festival this October. It sounds like so much fun! I'm not sure if a room-only discount or free dining would be a better deal for me, but I'm hoping for something. I haven't made any reservations yet, but Southwest is having a 72-hour sale right now & I'm tempted to go ahead and book my flight. I'm not sure why, but I'm nervous to make a commitment at this point.

I'm already booked for 9/25-10/1 to take advantage of the summer FD offer, but I'm getting very worried about the heat and humidity at that time of year. I'm hoping that we'll be able to move our trip to December for the same price so I won't melt.

We did the same thing. Booked Sept only because of free dining, but are hoping and praying for Late Nov or early Dec!

I just want to share a post made way back on April 19th at 6:30pm, which was a full FIVE DAYS before anything was posted here. This wonderful person did not receive the credit she fully deserved. It further proves what I've been saying all along, that more than just one or two people have information and it's always out there to find.

Let's give him a little pixie dust for her contribution shall we?

Didn't even see her post, but that could be because I was not reading that closely yet back then. I knew November deals weren't out yet. Great info though and spot on. I really don't' get the whole recognition and praise thing though. Sure I always say thanks for the info and I really DO appreciate it, but nothin more.

It was in the September code thread and went largely overlooked. I don't get it either, it just makes some folks have big heads and overshadows the point of it all.

At the end, nobody saves money because of a leak, they save money because of the promo that would happen even without a leak. Year after year I've heard people say "because of so and so I was able to save a fortune". They should say because of Disney, because they're the ones making the offer.

September 26 - October 2
October 18 - October 31
November 11 - November 23
November 30 - December 4
December 15 - 22

As usual, certain room types are excluded, such as campsites at Ft. Wilderness, 3-bedroom villas, and the Little Mermaid rooms at Art of Animation. A 3 night minimum stay (14 night maximum) and two day minimum park ticket is required for each person in the party.

Disney Value Resorts ~ Quick Service Dining Plan Included
(can be upgraded to regular plan)
All-Star Movies Resort
All-Star Music Resort
All-Star Sports Resort
Pop Century Resort
Art of Animation Resort (excluding Little Mermaid rooms)

Moderate Resorts ~ Regular Dining Plan Included
Carribean Beach Resort
Coronado Springs Resort
Port Orleans Resort French Quarter and Riverside

Deluxe Resorts ~ Regular Dining Plan Included
Animal Kingdom Lodge
Yacht & Beach Club Resorts
BoardWalk Inn
Contemporary Resort
Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
Polynesian Resort
Wilderness Lodge

Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts ~ Regular Dining Plan Included
Bay Lake Tower
Animal Kingdom Villas
Beach Club Villas
BoardWalk Villas
Old Key West Resort
Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa
The Villas at Disneys Wilderness Lodge
Fort Wilderness Cabins

Remember that the free dining offer for September expires on July 31st, and in the past, October-December offers have been released as late as August 3.

These sources are quite good, and the same ones I got the September Free Dining, as well as the August-September Room Only Discounts that nobody else on the Dis even mentioned (and brought lots of relief to many late-August travelers as well).

Let me also make a word of caution concerning leaks.

1. These promo leaks, while helpful on the nerves, don't actually get anyone a deal any sooner. In the end, you still have to call in on the day it's released and wait on hold right along with people who just found out that very morning. So again, the leaks sure do settle the nerves, but they don't get anyone any special privileges, nor do they get you in the door any quicker.

2. I never ever advise anyone to make any non-refundable plans based on a leak. To date, there has been NO LEAK that hasn't had mistakes. Take for example the September free dining, where the Little Mermaid rooms were said to be included...they were not. Similar mistakes have happened with EVERY leak in the past, from misquoted date ranges, to rooms said to be included, but were not. Which is why I always say, don't bet the farm until the announcement is official.

I will keep everyone updated as things become more and more clear. I will tell any information I receive, as I receive it, even if it's bits and pieces of partial information. I have no plans of making anyone wait this out, not even for a minute....because I know how nerve racking this is for everyone.

As June progresses, we'll hear more...in the meantime, you may very well receive that elusive PIN code, as they are still being sent out.

Good vibes everyone!!!

So if these dates hold true, my dates will be blacked out. I'm arriving on Oct. 12th. So let's hope there will be a RO discount offered as well. Thanks for the info!

Haha! Never thought of it that way, but you are right. But a leak would at least save me a few weeks of stress and aggravation. Haha!!!! I am thankful for all the folks both with and without pin codes and with or without info just because you all keep me hoping and keep me smiling and keep me busy. Lol. But appreciating someone and idolizing them is a whole nother ball game. Lol

Very true, and a few have been idolized to the point that some people won't listen to anyone but them. Everyone gets their info from somewhere else, so it's not hard to believe that the same source isn't used by more than one person. It's not like Disney only has one leak in the entire world...

I'm just sharing info as I get it, but I can't force anyone to look at it and take it for what it's worth. Even more amazing is that all the leaks in the past and likely in the future aren't perfect, and all have had mistakes...yet some overlook them to the point of saying that so and so is 100% accurate when that's never been the case in years and years I've been on the dis.

I remember back in 2010 when free dining was said to be dead, yet me and a couple others leaked the date at basically the same time, few believed us, then a few more and eventually people realized it was on target and we all got the free dining we were hoping for. In the end, we just want it to be included for our dates, that's about it.
