We are going in Sept as well. Our agent said free dining won't be released until late spring to mid summer.
Hope that helps

Fall discounts

Last year they were released in the beginning of May.

Yes, my agent said there is ALOT of shifting already. We have the last two days of Sept booked into October, so that if there is FD, we can lock on for our trip. If it ends earlier, we can move a week earlier. If there is FD, she will land it.

Also waiting to book our September Trip. The more people to book the less likely Disney will offer FD. If the rooms are already booked there will be no need to offer FD to fill the rooms, so people don't book!!! This messes up the chances of a discount.

I think it's safe to say free dining won't be available for my Aug. 24-29 at CSR as it didn't start until Sept. 2 in '13, I don't see why Disney would bring it back into August. I originally had my hopes up, but have basically ruled it out now.

I suppose it's possible to receive a free dining bounce back offer from my stay this May '14, but I've noticed the majority of bounce backs tend to be for Room Only discounts?? And as that stands the current Memory Maker + 15% actually saves me more (was planning on getting the MM regardless).

Hi...Just a quick question...?

Hello Disney Kids,

I wasn't sure where to put this question and didn't feel the need to start a whole new thread....so, here is our story....

We last visited Disney in Nov 12....We haven't thought much about visiting again.........until just recently.....

Its Feb 10th.....Its cold as heck in NJ, More SNOW coming soon, We need to leave for Disney and were late, waaaaaay behind as we usually plan things out, well in advance....

I was hoping to get your feedback on visiting in May 14 & Any FREE Dining that may already be available or is rumored to be available??

Our last two stays have included Free dining and has made the trip much more financially pleasing for our family of 5...

So, there it is....what can you tell me about free dining in May or room discounts, anything to save a dollar....

Kynd Thanks,
Your friends in NJ.

I am May 2014! Unfortunately free dining hasn't been offered and I haven't heard any rumors of it being offered in May either. I was able to use the room discount + free day of tickets promo that's being offered for my dates.

We are tentatively planning a visit from September 28th to October 4th. If free dining is for September, will that extend to our October days?

If it runs until the 28th and your very first day of check in is the 28th than yes, your in!

How do you know if you have a bounce back offer?? How close to your last trip do you have to travel to get one of these offers??

I just called Disney because we have moved since our last trip 18 months ago and some of our email has not been getting through, so wanted to make sure there wasn't any pins waiting for me.
A Bounce back is only offered while you are staying at the resort (according to the happy gentleman).

There were no pin codes for our account but he said any FD will be announced sometime in April or May, and at this point he said there is a good possibility there will be something. He couldn't say when or what, but ......

Question

Disney has annoucned that the Epcot Food & Wine Festival for 2014 has been moved up one week, starting on 9/19/2014. I wonder if this change will mean the death of free dining for September?

You can book a bounceback offer for a future stay only while you are still at a WDW resort. Once you leave the resort, you're not eliglble.

You must receive a PIN (or have one on your account, which is why people call to ask) to use one.

As for a general public offer in May, don't count on it. There has only been one that included any dates in May, and it was the end of May.

If September 28 counts as a check-in date for the promotion, then it will apply to your full stay. If the last possible check-in date is the 27th, it won't apply to any of your stay unless you book two reservations.
