I don't think I've heard anyone request a building in AB before though. I know it has sounded like most everyone gets the requests they make.
We were originally booked before FD dropped w standard, but had to upgrade to garden view. It's a small price to pay for 8 days of meals for 5 people! I now if only MDE would work so I could see my date countdown haha!

Yes quite sad. I just never understand why things like this happen.

I apologize if this was already covered somewhere in this thread, because I didn't read all the replies. But this caught my eye. I'm a new DVC member and booked my vacation 10/27-11/2 at SSR a couple weeks ago. How do I get this perk? We are planning on adding a dining plan anyway, so this would be awesome! We are also planning on buying the annual passes, haven't done it yet.

DVC reservations at least those booked with points are not eligible for Free Dining, You can add the dining plan and pay for it.

Generally Mickey Mail & DME tags don't come until around 30 days before your trip. I always book air separate from package & all you have to do is call Disney and provide flight information.

We do have another hws day that we could make sure we made rope drop for! Any advice? What's everyone else doing?
I think were staying the same dates(11/10-11/17) were doing a split stay doing pofq on 11/10 then switching to POR on the 11th. In order to receive the fd you have to check into POP first. You could checkout of AoA, have them transfer your luggage to POP, drive over to POP to check in and get your tickets with the fd then I guess it's up to you how you want to handle your transportation over to HS. We're going to mk that day to avoid the crowds then we have an adr at trails end in the campground at 6:15. But I think we're going to checkout of pofq at 8:00, walk over to POR to ckeckin, eat breakfast then grab the bus to mk.

Thanks for the info! It's good to know since it seems to be more and more difficult every year to get a discount.

October can't come fast enough, I hope you have a great trip!

I have two little girls (6 and 2) and was a little bummed to let go of some sort of themed resort, but CBR looked beautiful and from what I read fun for children. A few times since then I pulled up the WDW site (just for fun) entered my dates under the FD promotion just to see what I would get. Less and less rooms came up every time I checked. And yesterday CBR and POR were completely sold out of FD rooms for my dates. This morning I did the same. CBR was sold out, but when I pulled up POR low and behold what do I see....A ROYAL GUEST ROOM AT POR!!!! I'm thinking no way....I didn't even think they included those in this promo this time around. I called DH quickly and wondered his thoughts. Of course he knows his girls will love it so he says "Call Disney!" So I do and wait on hold with that nervous feeling thinking it will be gone before I talk with a CM. Finally my CM picks up, I ask her about it. She even thought hmmmmm. She checked and there it was!!! We got it!! I'm so excited my little princesses will get to stay in this room and with such an awesome discount like FD! Sorry for a long long post. But like my title says I'm sharing with those that understand the excitement!!

Doing a happy dance!
Yea! Yea! Yea!!! Congrats!!!

Good to know! Its only $30 to add 1 more day of tix for us, so we were thinking of doing a park Sun night (11/10) Ive read some people have had trouble, and some have had success getting their package early. What is your plan?

You are a smart lady to avoid HWS on Monday, but we do not have hoppers, and my DD saw a you tube video of the Disney Jr Dance that is only offered nights HWS has EMH. So we are pretty much braving the crowds just for that!

Thank you again for your help! Since we have 2 hws days, would you suggest just taking it easy Monday morning. Get the check out and check in out of the way, and not attempt to make RD? Just leisurely take in the shows? We will also be at HWS on the 13th (I think) and we could go to RD and make sure we do the high priorities that day?

I have received confirmation from my Mom that she would like to go to Disney with my kids and I this year. We have decided on dates but now where to stay? Resorts are very limited for Nov 11-18th with the Free Dining promo. Should we stay again at POP since we really had a good time there last year or try someplace new? Our only other option for value would be Music and they have no preferred rooms left just standard or try one of the moderates left(CB or CS) which do not have any preferred rooms left either? We did enjoy our stay at Pop more than our stay in POR.
