Sorry, I am catching on, little slow today...lol. You have an infant, so technically you can do a standard/ 4 per room/rm...gotcha, finally! Speak slowly to me... May want to have a resort room category and another resort in mind as a back up when you call on free dining release date; some fill up quicker than others. Also take into consideration that they might only have a more expensive room category available for FD.

Yes, we already have 2 LM rooms booked at AoA, so we're looking to upgrade to the cheapest moderate resort, 2 rooms, so that we can get FD. So a room for 4 plus and infant and another room for 3.

But to calm everyone's fears, these things don't sell out the first morning. There are still people booking the September offer. Worst case is a room category or possibly a resort may sell out, but even that takes a while to do. Plus, often they will open more rooms up anyway after the rush is over.
Thanks!!

You can book up to three rooms with your pin code if they are staying at the same resort for the same dates that might help.

Pins have been out, but not the public offer. it has been assumed it would come out, but this is the first real posting with actual dates and when it can be booked.

This is too funny...we did it again; mine is right above yours! Maybe the third time will be a charm, and I will be on the same "page."

The August dates were never actually in contention, I made that point early on.

That really left a hole as to where they would start, since the pins went from August 25-October 2. The November 30-December 4 dates vanished, likely because those dates filled up.

Interestingly, if you notice, some of the other dates opened up a bit wider.

Although I will be more relaxed once we are booked. Hopefully on the 29TH! I will be using my Disney Visa for all three rooms, so we can all get it a few days ahead of the public. Am I right in thinking, I only need to put $200 on my Visa for the other 2 rooms? I already put down way more than that on my package all on my Visa card, so I don't think I will need to make another payment. I think I will just pay it off when it comes out though.
Disneyfantotheend & Pluto Finally right!!! This has been horrible, I'm so happy for you both.

We are already booked at POFQ 12/16 - 12/24. I have a Disney Visa that I have paid a good chunk of my balance with. My current bal due is around $800. If free dining is applied we would save more than we owe. Does that make sense? So will my account be paid in full and a credit applied on my Visa? Also, do I just call on 7/29 and ask for the DV free dining?

Thanks for any help you can give me! I am over the moon excited about this...been waiting pathetically PINless for soo long now!

This information just appeared on the Chip & Co. site....as the first news of this information. Guess they don't read the Dis?

They will refund you when the code is applied, and yes, you just call them as soon as the deal is released. As long as your room type has availability under the offer, you are good to go. I would have a back up resort/room type ready just in case.

I was just figuring Sept 26,27,28 were likely booked up because of the previous FD offer. People checking in on 21st going for a week with FD. Will suck to be there knowing everyone dining around us didnt have to pay and we do but oh well at least you tipped me off on the room discount. 25% off isnt anything to sneeze at.
