Why do you think the week after Thanksgiving isn't included in the dates? I thought that was usually a slow week with everyone going back to work and school after the holiday.

Just an observation, but a Disney Authorized Vacation Planning agency has reported these "rumors" too on FB.

Woohoo - another Dis thread to follow. And to think I was afraid I might run out and actually have to do real work instead!

So there is a period of 3 days where there is no FD. The 3 days I just happen to be there.

We check in on the 28th. If they did change it so it starts the 29th that is going to be a bummer. We'll have to discuss and see what we will do. Don't want to risk having to change rooms.

I could cry. If this holds true (which I believe it will) this would be our first onsite stay and a dream of mine. We check in on Nov 20th and fd is the only way this dream can come true. I know nothing is "official" until the day Disney releases it for booking but I am on right now! Come on July 29th ~ I'm already wishing the summer away waiting for November, lol!

After much complaining by moi that I "NEVER" got a free dining Pin <--that is me whining and feeling sorry for myself-- I looked at an old email address and realized I had THREE separate offers--all expired now, of course.

So here I am. Waiting. And waiting.

But I went ahead and booked our trip, because we are going, regardless.

So here's to Disney, thanks for the PIN. I apologize for my whining...
