this was the email I received last year for free dining. hope it helps
So my DS and I are going Nov. 28,-Dec 5th. Do you think the FD will be still on at this time? We are contemplating between All Star Movies and Pop.... Do they both offer the FD?

The summer deal was just released a few weeks ago. I called a Disney CM about a problem with our reservations and I mentioned that really hoped we landed free dining as the summer resort discount would expire two weeks before we get there, but i would be happy with FD OR resort discount. He chuckled and then said, "What until mid-April and I think you will be very happy."

For what it is I am hoping. My TA said that they are not suppose to say anything, but sometimes they let something slip. We just aren't sure what that "something" is.

Both Pop & AS Movies offered free dining in the past. If it's offered in Nov/Dec, you'd need to do a split stay. I've never seen FD offered during Thanksgiving week. It could be offered the last part of your trip though!

Last year September FD came out on May 9th.
"Fall" (last few days of Sep - December with some black out dates) was not released until August 1.

We had free dining in May 2011. It was the end of May into June. Over Memorial Day weekend. It was very crowded!

Already have reservations

If free dining comes out and is for the dates I already have reservations for, will they adjust my bill?

No, you will have to call and try to get the FD applied to your package. WDW only makes so many rooms available for FD, and some resorts/categories are entirely excluded.

If FD comes out you will need to call Disney and ask them if they can apply it to your current reservation. IF your resort and/or dates are not excluded then they can apply the discount and refund your money IF all of the alloted rooms are not already taken. Each resort only has a certain allotment of rooms for each promo available. Disney offers discounts to fill rooms. If there is a resort or dates that are booking well without discounts, Disney has no reason to offer a discount (especially FD) for that resort so they will exclude it, same goes for dates. And remember, each resort is only given an allotment of rooms that they can apply the promo to.
Hopefully you are flexible with your resort choice and your dates, just in case.
