    What number did you call back and get through on? I'm currently on hold with 2 phones for 50 minutes now.

    I called 407 W DISNEY and said 'agent' until I heard hold music.

    So if my package starts September 2nd is 3 days earlier calculated including September 2nd or without ? Can I pick up on August 30th ?

    I have both reservations listed below each other in "my Disney Experience" - does that mean they are linked ??

    Thanks!!

    I don't understand I called back and spoke to a different CM and she said because our stay goes past the FD dining offer we don't qualify. What happened to check in before the 25th and your whole stay is included? I'm so so bummed.

    After 50 minutes on hold, I was finally able to speak to an agent. We are staying at a value and FD in only from 9/14 to 9/25 for the values, so I was only able to get a 20% room discount.. oh well, it's better than nothing ;)

    I'm just happy we are going to Disney :cool1:

    GL to everyone calling. Be patient it takes a long time to get through.

    Huh?:confused3 Lots of people have booked values for early Sept with free dining. The deal is up on the Disney site. Try plugging in your info through the free dining offer and see if what you want is available online.

    Just noticed the website says values and moderates are September 14-25. That has to be a mistake, since others have booked prior dates. What's up with that?

    Edit...I just went into their site to test a moderate for six nights starting on the 2nd and it totally showed the dining plan.

    The site has the dates wrong, I wonder if someone should make them aware of that. It does still allow you to book it for the correct dates though. At least it did for the mods.

    I booked our trip 2 days ago for all star music. The CM told me that I could call back today and add the free dining. I had my mom call at 7 am because I was getting the kids ready for school. By 8:30 she was still on hold and had to get ready for work and had to hang up :(
    So I called them back and have been on hold an hour now.
    :sad:
    Does the free dining sell out? Should I just relax with my phone on speaker?
    do I have to call a different number to book dining or can they do that too?
    Thanks for the help! We havent stayed on property since 96!! So this is stressing me out LOL

    Just to verify, I priced a value and a moderate beginning on September 2 for six nights and it showed free dining for both.

    The September 14-25 dates for mods and values on their site is wrong.

    Hopefully they fix it soon.

    No, you're fine. If you have your confirmation, there is nothing they could do even if it was in error.

    It's wrong. You can do the booking yourself online. That is around the time that the pricing "seasons" change, so my guess is that it was for the saving example in the ad. You most certainly can get FD for the first half of the month at all resort levels.
