Oh that is wonderful news!! We will be checking in on October 18th!! I am so excited!! I have been a little nervous about having extra spending money and this will ease my nerves quite a bit!! We have a family of 6 plus my MIL going with us and we will be there for my daughters 5th birthday. While I have been to WDW and Disney Land before the rest of my family has never been. I am also hoping to upgrade our room from ASM to CBR. YAY!!

I really feel so badly for those who are finding their dates are not included. That would be so devastating to me. Hopefully something will work out for you, maybe a room only with broader dates??

I just went back and re-priced our trip at the new rates and it will cost us an extra $49 under the new rates to switch to FD. I will still save over $400 with FD, even after paying the rate increase.

Not bad!

A big to Joe Black for this. I have been stalking these boards for awhile, and I just want to add my thanks!

Someone smarter than I am, please, help me out with the math. I booked our trip (two adults, two juniors) from Dec 4 thru Dec 10 at POR with park hoppers and regular dining with a internet discount offer of 25% off the room.

Will I save any money by switching to the free dining dates, if I do not have a room discount? My math says that would be a wash.

But am I understanding correctly that there might also be a room discount offered for the December free dining rates? So would that be like paying off season room rates, with free dining?

TIA!

This is great news and what I was waiting for! I already booked for October 19-26 hoping that there would be a discount for this time but also limited by when we could go. If I had to bite the bullet on it I was preparing for that but now that dining will be free I don't have to worry about it anymore. Can't wait to call have them update my reservation for FD! Now just need to wait for the official news. Hopefully these dates work out some magic for everyone else as well.

Yeah!! I save more with a Room discount and this means I can maybe stay at a deluxe for my birthday!!

Does this mean that I can't get the discount if I need tickets? I would need two ressie as I was thinking of doing a cruise in the middle of my trip so I would only need to buy tickets on one ressie.
