Yes! We booked this year for free dining next month...what would be an incentive for me to book a bounce back offer, or just wait till I got home? I still got free dining

You o ly need to add 2 days of tickets and you can just not use them then use the value towards your AP renewal when it's time.

So I'm probably best to wait for the BB offer when I get there in November, just in case? I would hate to book something and then not qualify for a BB.

I think I know my week and it's a pretty quiet week as the ADRs are wide open that week and it appears to be a very low crowd week.
(First week in February)
So I'm suspecting the general public will be offered something, but BB might have a better incentive. ???

We were at WDW the first full week of Feb this year and discounts for that period came out in early Oct. There was both a room only discount and the Stay, Play and Dine plan offered to the general public. It is a slow time of year.

The bounce back offer you receive in Nov most likely will be for free dining in Aug and Sept 2014 if you are there before Nov 15 th. I'm not sure what it will be for resort guests after that date. But the bounce back offer we got was 35% of a deluxe resort while the general public discount was 30% or less for deluxe. So the bounce back is usually a better offer.

Bounce Back - August 2013

I know there is an active offer, because I just booked a FREE dining bounce back for next August 20th. That is the first available date for FREE dining next August. The code is in the Welcome pack in your room. If you didn't get it ask the front desk to have housekeeping deliver it.
Or call 407-939-1923 and ask them for the bounce back offer.

It must be booked before you check out.

Good Luck!!!

If you were to book this and cancel it later, would the tickets be cancel-able too? Or would you cancel the room part but still be left with the tickets?

Once you have booked the bounce back,can it be modified? We are looking to book it for the 3 of us now, but could I add a 4th person later on?

Thanks for all the info! Just booked Free Dining for the end of August 2014. Free dining offer is available 8/20 through 9/29. CM was excellent. Shared that if you do not know exact dates you want to stay, you can reserve for up to 14 days, then modify down from there when you know your calendar better.
