You shouldn't change anything until it comes out officially.

We've got a FD pin, so it really doesn't effect us. But good luck when (or if) general public FD comes out for your dates.

Cheers!
Unfortunately we didn't have a choice about waiting for the announcement since we are using points to fly and needed to book our flights early so we could get the dates/flights we wanted. Since our DS graduates Nov 29th we can't change our dates.

I believe I believe a CM will sprinkle pixie dust our way

I can't stress this enough. The more people book packages early, in anticipation of a discount, the fewer discounts will be offered. If Disney goes by bookings when deciding on discounts, booking up all the rooms isn't going to benefit anyone in terms of getting discounts.

It doesn't serve much purpose to book early, as that doesn't guarantee you a discount anymore than someone calling in for a new reservation.

I always look forward to and appreicate the October free dining threads! Now, I should know the answer to this but I guess I've forgotten. If you have a Disney Visa can you book online when the offer is available to cardholders or do you have to call? TIA!

Here is my question - if I change my dates from oct 14-19 to oct 21-26 and get a room there and all that, will I most likely get the FD or is there a chance it will "run out"?

The more people that book early the less chance a FD offer will be given for those dates.

Yes, hang tight. If/when the free dining promotion is released, call at that time to see if you can update your reservation with the FD offer and for the new dates you want. Changing your dates now doesn't help.
