I just don't know if I'm buying this whole free dinning with out a pin thing. Why would they do it for some and not others. I mean if it's true it's great for those who got it, it just seems a little off to me.

I called today and no PIN attached to my name. But she checked my dates and found a free dining discount for me. Told her i wanted moderate. She checked my first resort choice , POR, and nothing available. But did have spots for CBR and CSR. Now booked for October 2-8 at CBR with free dining!!

It makes me wonder if some people had the pin all along but the cm told them the he or she would just give them one in the hopes of a favorable survey at the end of the call. Who knows, maybe the get some kind of bonus if you take the survey stating what a wonderful cm they are.

I am wondering if WDTC agents have been given permission to apply free dining for certain dates/resorts that have unusually low occupancy rates. And also, maybe when we call, some folks are speaking with CRO agents vs. WDTC agents, who do not have the means/authorization to offer free dining????? And maybe too Disney is trying to fill up the less popular resorts/room categories before free dining is made available to GP????

This year, it seems so wacky. I've never heard of people getting FD without a pin when there is no GP offer! What is going on??

Can't really explain how, just called and asked with a little groveling and she gave it to me. To be honest I was surprised to get it. But, very happy I did.

I'm curious, what are CRO agents and how are they different from WDTC agents? Thanks

O.k. Called again.. Thinking that this is the 100th time. Asked for any type of discount during my time frame.. Sept 28- Oct 8 ... or a pin. The CM stated that I did not have a pin and the discount ends at Sept 28th.

All I want is one sprinkle of pixie dash. I'm so frustrated when I see people getting pin after pin and not one my way... =(

I (and many others on here) share your frustration! Hopefully we'll hear something about a visa/gp discount in a few weeks if not sooner ~ fingers crossed
