Yes that would be magical lol. I've stayed there in the past (2011) with free dining in a standard room. Last year my 3 sisters and I stayed at Poly on a bounceback. I felt guilty that my kids weren't getting to go. ( by my kids I mean my daughter, son-in-law and dgd). When free dining and cheap airfare came out in July I took that as a sign and bought them a package at POFQ and plane tickets and gave it to dgd for her birthday. We had a fabulous time dining at character meals with them. Wonderful memories!

My brain is fuzzy this morning...

Would upgrading to a Moderate save us anything? I'm only asking because it seems that the values are out for FD. Running some numbers it looks like we would be paying the same for a Mod with FD as we would for a value paying full price.

We do have the possibility of getting a discount through a CM friend. We'll see!

You need to wait and see, if they open to the general public they will open more rooms at the value resort's. The rooms that you are seeing sold out are for pin holders.

I wouldn't give up hope on the value resorts. Some are still getting FD for value, and more rooms will be available for the FD offer when it goes to DVC/GP offer. That being said, remember that the FD for value resorts is QS dining only (2 QS, 1 snack per day per person); FD for moderate (and deluxe) resorts is regular DDP (1 TS, 1 QS, 1 snack per day per person). Don't know if that makes a difference or not, but is worth considering when pricing your options.

I wish for all of you that you have some good news soon.

was probably a month ago, just about the time the Free Dining Pin for December came out. Last year, we got a pin code in someone else's name (a friend whose trip I planned) for the timeframe we were going down and Guest Services let us use it. This time we didn't get the pin in either name but I was still getting e-mails with the wrong NAME on them. Reservations kept telling me I didn't have a pin but Guest Services called and offered to book the trip with Free Dining. Who was I to argue?!?!?

Congrats on the PIN.
for the Internet dept not just reservations. They can look deeper into your account and then have them transfer you to Guest Services. They have magical powers!!!

Yea I'm trying to remember how much the upcharge was the last time we went and stayed value. I think we paid around $100 extra to get the DDP.

I have checked availability for late November into early December 2013, and it seems every resorts base rooms, or even the room category above it, are all sold out. This is all from pin holders? Or why is this? Sorry if this has been explained already, I didn't see it. Anyway, I can't see how they'd bother to offer any discounts for late fall into winter (Oct-Dec) if this is the case. Any Disney gurus out there shed some (more) light on this?
