We check in on the 10th and still until the 19th. Will they extend the FD to include all of our dates or just the second half? Also, does anyone know the upcharge from QS?

For anyone that has called more than once asking if you had a Pin code attatched to your name.....did you end up with one after initially being told you didn't? I ask because I called over a month ago and was told no and don't want to make a pest of myself if i've got no shot....lol

We are also going to be out of town, and four hours behind eastern time. I'm really hoping it doesn't come out that week. If it is on Monday, I will have to make an international call and pay $$$$ on my cell phone bill. If it's on Thursday, I will be in the country, but I would have to get up at 3 local time if I wanted to call first thing. Since I will be in a room with my family, this won't go over well. Of course, I can't be too concerned because I will be on the Disney Wonder on an Alaskan cruise!!! We booked a last minute VGT rate. Even though I am thrilled, I am worried I won't have access to the free dining announcement. First world problem, I know!!!

Did this just happen today? I can't believe how crappy my luck is. Noone ever comes looking to give me free dining, and they won't give it to me when I go to them. Kind of frustrating when you hear so many positive stories.

What do you say when you call? You just ask if a PIN is linked to your name? I've never asked but we have reservations in November.

Wow, congrats. I cannot get them to fix mine. My account has this old address each time I call that they cannot seem to remove or fix. They see both my old years ago addy and the one we've had for about 4 years. So each time I call I have to go through this long automated menu of changes as its the wrong account.

Congrats on the PIN.

I know how you feel hubby called me from work today saying we had two things from Disney in the mail. I yelled open them! But they were just a package payment invoice and my booking confirmation info etc. afterwards I told DH, well I guess it wouldn't have mattered. As I don't think there is any availability anyways for our dates at the values.

The CM my husband spoke with encouraged him to call back because she said pins were released in batches.

Our reservations are in October. I called and asked if there was a pin attached to my acct. The CM I got was great. She took a while but she came back on the phone and said she "found"me a fd pin for the time I was going to be there.

Hi, I currently have a non discounted room only res at POP from Sep 29- Oct 6. I've been checking for pins for over a month, no luck. I'm not even sure if my dates would be included if FD gets extended to general public. Here's the thing, while my family won't arrive until the 29th. I am going to be there from the 27th. On my last call the CM asked if I'd consider coming in on the 25th as that's the last day for the current sept promo and if I check in that day it's available for the full duration. We would get free dining for the full hotel stay. That we would just book the min day park tickets we think we would need and I can just upgrade mine to a ten day when I get there. I will be off work from the 24th and changing my flight not an issue, its just 2 more days there on my own i wasn't planning on, that said i dont think id have any trouble keeping busy at wdws. Do you think it's worth it? I just don't want to wait, find out my dates weren't available anyway and have missed out...
