Just want to verify.. if it runs through Oct. 3rd, and we check in on the 3rd, we can still get Free Dining for our whole trip, correct? Oct 3rd-8th?

Ugh!!! Back in January we reviewed cut of dates for the week before Tgiving, and based on past history decided to fly in on Friday, Nov 21! I think it is probably worth it to change one ticket & come a day earlier, if it is only thru Nov 20 this year...

Well boo.

I wonder if they will add additional days later? We made our reservations waiting for the free dining the week of October 18th as it was last year. There are bound to be some cancellations as we will likely consider.

I realize this has already been asked, but please be kind to an international newbie . We are booked in from Oct 2 until 9. Does this mean we get the full week of free dining, even though the promo ends a day after we arrive? If this is the case, I am one happy girl!

Free dining will start on the day you check in and will end when you check out. As long as you check in during the free dining days it will be good for you entire trip. So you will have free dining your entire trip.

Thanks!!!! My 10 yr old son and I are jumping around the lounge room in excitement.

Next question, currently I have paid for about half of my reservation (resort, tickets, memory maker). Do I need to finish paying it off and then ring Disney to get my reservation re-done? Or should I just ring ASAP when the offer goes public next week? (Trying to avoid too many international phone calls!)

I think you need a Disney Visa credit card to get free dining now. If you don't have a Disney Visa card you will have to wait until it is announced to the general public on May 7. You don't need to pay off your trip until 45 days out. Someone correct me if I am wrong. I am seeing wait times of up to 1hr for people trying to book so be prepared for the wait next week. Also you may need to book a new reservation under the free dining code and all resorts are not included.

If you have a Disney visa card you can book it now. You do not have to wait until you receive any notification from Chase or Disney.

Just call, say you want the Disney Visa free dining, and use your Disney Visa to make the deposit.

You may not be able to do the Disney Visa booking online. Not sure about that one but I think you might have to call.

if you do not have a Disney visa card you will need to wait to book until the offer goes public on May 7.

If you already have a package and you are applying the free dining to it, you do not have to have it paid in full, and you had better call them ASAP to be sure you get the resort and dates you want, because there will be a limited number of rooms offered.

Make sure you check the exempted resorts, if you are staying at one you will need to change your resort to get the promotion. Port Orleans (both FQ and POR this time), Art of Animation Little Mermaid section, Grand Floridian Villas (just the villas, not the hotel), All Star Movies, Fort Wilderness campsites and all 3 bedroom villas are excluded.

The only reason you'd need to cancel and rebook is if you have previously booked a room only reservation and not a package.
