Well called, struck out again yesterday afternoon and again this morning. No CM offered FD and no PINS.

Not that I was actually expecting to break my unlucky streak....

We used a pin that was in our mother's name this week. She is not going with us. The first CM told us we could not use it, but we have previously done this, so we hung up and called right back. Second CM said the pin is for the household, and the person just has to have the same address as you, not a requirement that they are actually going.

I had given up on getting a pin anyway but I think not staying on-site before may be a reason (among unknown others) that we didn't get a pin. Just trying to make sense of it ~ if there is any sense to be made, lol!
We have always stayed onsite, so has my mother, whose name the pin came in.

Got a pin in my moms name, called and can't use, even though it was forwarded here, long story. But it doesn't matter anyway because I was playing around online with it and there is nothing available for our dates where we want. So I will stop calling, I really will. It just stinks cause we just went with my parents in Jan. And they got the pin. Ugh, frustrated!!!

I just tried again. No pin and no offer to give me FD without it. The CM I spoke to said they are not allowed to give FD without a pin. I guess you guys that got it either got really lucky or the right CM. So far I haven't gotten either. Oh well. We will still have a great time.

If you only want to reward people who have been before, then reward everyone who has been before. Everyone in my extended family and several friends have received this pin, but not me or DH. No one except my inlaws are using it. My inlaws wouldn't even be using it if it weren't for the fact that they decided to come with us. So indirectly I got the pin, but I still hate the pins and the randomness of them. Sorry, I'll stop complaining now. I just hate seeing so many people who love Disney and want to have a fun family vacation upset by these stupid pins.
I think Disney is trying to get those that have not gotten pins to do the marketing for them. As in, my sister got a pin but I did not. Who better to convince someone to go again, earlier than planned (so that all can share in the FD) than one's own friends and family. I'm not sure if the FD had any impact on your in-laws decision or not and not that I was able to convince my sister to go however, but I bet others have been successful. It really is pretty smart marketing on their part, even though it drives me insane daily!
And I broke down and called today and checked my maiden name and married name...nothing.

How exciting! I could never surprise my kids with a trip. I am terrible at keeping secrets, but I did manage to keep their PL appointments and our Pirates and Pals voyage secret last year. We have been taking the kids out of school the Friday before their Fall break because flights are cheaper. This will be the last year we do that, though, because DD will be in middle school next October.

We can't keep the trip a secret in my family either but do have a few surprises planned when we are there. My niece who just loves Mickey and Minnie and turns 3 while we are at Disney is having dinner on her birthday at CM. Taking all the kids to CRT as a surprise, could not get an ADR last trip.

Seems like as the kids gets older it's getting harder to vacation! Our next trip is being squeezed at both ends (midnight flight out and 6am flight back) to not miss too many Nutcracker ballet rehearsals!

Lol good! Yes keep calling...be persistent
We started at POFQ but changed to POP only because it saved us another $600.
