None. You must check in during the time period.

Wow, that kinda hurts
Look into splitting your reservation! Our trip is August 31-Sept. 7. In order to take advantage of the FD we are modifying our existing reservation checking in on Sept. 2 and creating a new reservation for Aug. 31-Sept. 2 hote only and going to universal on those days.
Its a bummer to be right on that line but at least we'll get it for a few days.
There is no fee as long as you do it before your 45 day arrival day 44 you'll be charged. If they happen to increase tickets between now & May 9th your ticket part of the package will increase to whatever the new ticket prices are.

Split stays really aren't a good option in regard to FD stays unless your first stay would be room only for 3 nights or less and the other poster would have to do a minimum 4 night room only reservation with those dates. You can only pick up package tickets 3 days early.
Are the Mermaid rooms at AoA included??
Ok, so I have a question. This is actually about a friend. He has already booked his stay, and has the park tickets. Only he got the park tickets through his company. I guess they offer a discount when buying through his work. Is he still eligible to get the dining? He meets all other requirements (I.e. he's checking in the 21st, staying at POR for 7 nights, etc)!
My stay, on the other hand was not what I was hoping for! I was originally planned to arrive the 26th, have everything booked including flights. But, we have decided to go ahead and change our dates and arrive on the 25th. Even with fees to change, it would still be cheaper than buying the regular dining package, which is what I was planning on! Still saving me $300 and I get an extra stay at disney! So I'm content!!
They seem to be, and if they really are, the consensus is that they will be extremely limited.
Supposedly they are included, but I'm still a bit skeptical of that. If they are, they would have to be VERY limited. I will be anxious to see if anyone on this board gets a FD discount on those rooms come May 9. I say have a back up resort or room category, just in case.
Congrats to you! As for your friend, he will have to purchase a minimum 2 day ticket for everyone on the reservation if he wants free dining. He can save those tickets for future use, though.
Your friend would not be eligible. You must be booked under a Magic Your Way package that included room, tickets and dining to apply the FD discount to your reservation. There is a 2 day base ticket requirement with that MYW FD package.
Ok, thanks. I wasn't sure if it was the same thing or not.
Sorry need to edit
There is no FD for August.
Yes, thanks from me, too. Saved me PAGES of scrolling.
Oh my I just caught that..OH let me edit my post..Thanks!
Wait, so is it confirmed that there is ABSOLUTELY no free dining for August?
If the dates posted on the Resorts board by a person who has been correct about free dining dates every year for the past few years are correct once again, then there will be no free dining in August. the given check-in dates for the promotion were September 2 - 25.
For absolute confirmation you will probably have to wait at least another week.
Yup those are the dates. Sorry guys but it looks like there are a couple of large conventions the last week of August which could have impacted discounts. Regardless, free dining doesn't start til the 2nd.
SO what is your gut feeling about late august for 2014????????????
