Hmm. That's not a bad idea! Maybe my 4 year old DD can sneak out one morning and go while the boys and DH sleep in. She is the early riser of the family...now off to stalk reservations. Thanks for the idea!

We're going to go to AK our first day since its an easy park to walk around. We'll go to bed early. Than on Sunday we'll get up early and do rope drop at MK, come back to the resort to freshen up and head back for the MNSSHP. Than the rest of the week is up in the air.
We were planning on coming back late on November 2nd but with that airfare price we're leaving in the morning. So I just dropped a hopper day.

Oh, well in that case, I can tell you....well wait, maybe I should wait and tell you tomorrow.


Just kidding...nothing to tell yet, still quiet on the home front.

The suspense is killing me! I have been quietly stalking this thread...hoping to see some good news. I called the other day & CM was no help...no pin code & she had "absolutely no idea" when the next promotion would be announced...blah blah blah!

I just got off the phone booking my stay at CBR and I told the CM I wasn't booking my tickets until the free dining offer was extended because it would determine how many days we were there and at the end of the call she said.............................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ...........


"just to give you hope - we don't know the offers before they come out but there has been an awful lot of talk lately about extending the current offer"

Just in case you are not aware, if free dining is released, you will have to cancel your room only reservation and rebook a completely new reservation as a package requiring a new deposit with the other deposit being refunded to you.

Not totally sure about that I have added free dining on two occasions and never had to cancel and rebook they just made sure it was available with the reservation I already had and we kept the same confirmation number and all, also I had a LM room booked for this November and when I got FD pin in an email I upgraded to available resort and still kept the same confirmation number no cancellation hassle at all!

Does that apply to existing packages also? I'm taking my first trip in Dec and I booked everything through Disney (flight, POFQ, Dining Plan, etc), I've also already paid my balance. If they offer free dining do I have to reschedule or do they just refund the money I paid for the dining plan back to my card?

I'm also debating adding a few more days to my trip if they offer free dining. Can I just add days and change my return flight or do I have to rebook everything? I'm currently going Dec 1-7 but if they offer free dining I was thinking of using that money to stay to the 10th.

I booked a "room only package" so I wouldn't have to cancel. If I had booked just a room I would have had to. Two different cm's said that if free dining was offered I just needed to call in and add the tickets and dining and I was good to go.

As long as you are booked with a package to begin with, they will just modify your existing package. They will just refund you to the same form of payment you used.



On that note, if anyone has used gift cards to pay for your trip, be sure to hold onto the cards until your trip is over. If they need to refund you for any reason (discount, cancellation), they will need to put the money back onto those gift cards.
