so angry.
I went off the rumored Nov 22- Dec 4 dates from weeks past and got shafted.
We fly in the 4th. FD will NOW start on the 12th. I did get 4 RT airfare tix for nothing with points and rewards but the FD would have allowed me to get us our first moderate room. Now we're back to a value and paying for a meal plan. Poop on a stick I tell ya.
Could be worse....could NOT be going to Disney at all. So there is some light.

I wasn't counting on free dining, but my check in day is November 2 nd, checking out on the 11th. Am I eligible for FD? If so, it would be a big surprise!

Question..... I booked our vacation before the price increases went into effect. When I call on the release date to adjust my package to have FD will it adjust with the higher price increase on the tickets??

Oh that's no fun...

Up until the leak today, we had said that some dates could and would likely fall off if the PIN offer sold well...that appears to be what happened. I hate that they killed that whole week though. This is exactly why I don't ever tell people to make concrete plans before official announcements...because things change.

I had said the august dates were off the table and that the dates would fall on most if not all of the PIN dates. That's all the info my sources had at the time, as it was still up in the air on Disney's part at that point. Once they make a decision and that decision leaks, then you end up where we are today.

In fact, other date ranges actually added on a couple days...which is always nice for some folks. It's too bad for those who didn't get pin codes that the week sold so well to those who did receive them. I would have liked to have seen you all get your free dining as well.

But please call and ask if you have a PIN, plead and beg a little, as some people have got a pin just by asking...it never hurts.

Yes, unless you get real lucky, that's what will happen. The free dining however would be more than worth it.

I'm sorry if this has already been answered, but my friends are checking in on 11/1. Does this mean they should get free dining for their entire 8-night stay, even though most of the week is blacked out. Also, does free dining include club level (AKL)?

I knew I was gambling as always, but it's always worked in our favor (past 2 years). Quick question, if there is a PIN on my vacation planning DVD where would it be located or how many digits, etc? I just got it today and it has alpha-numeric codes on the front above our name and beside our name.
Thanks for all you do Black

As long as you purchase a package with a minimum 2 day ticket, you are eligible! You will need to call to see if it can be applied to your reservation when it goes live. Have a backup room type or resort in mind in case your current room type isn't available under the deal. Good luck!

Hello all, Excited for the rumors of free dining in November BUT i have a question.

It is rumored to be offered from Nov 11 - whatever.

We wanted to go and check in on the 9th.

Do we still get the free dining???? Or do you have to check in on a day that the free dining is offered?!?!?!?!?

If so, Can I pay for dining for 2 days and then get switched over to free dining?!?!?

Any advise would be great .

We want to stay from the 9th - 18th.

I don't have the exact amounts of the price increases in front of me, but if you need it just let us know and one of us will pull it up.

Woohoo! Great news! I have an AoA suite booked with park hoppers. Can I just rebook the same suite with free dining?

You would have to book a room only reservation for your first two nights and book a FD package starting on the 11th. You can pick up your package tickets up to 3 days early at guest relations, but you will not have access to your dining credits until you check in for your second stay. You will just pay OOP for your meals those couple of days. This would come with the possibility of having to change rooms, but if you link the two reservation together, you have a great chance of staying in the same room. Pack a bag for the first two nights instead of packing everything for the whole trip in the same bag. This will help save you time if you have to switch rooms. Good luck!

No need to rebook. Just call them when the deal goes live and they can add it to your current reservation. They offered a very small amount of Nemo rooms with the last offer, so be prepared to change themes if that is what you have booked currently. Good luck!
