    :confused3 What's the big deal? If I could give it to a friend, they could tell me if it's something that might go public or if it's just a pkg code for a pin.

    I'm going in February. It doesn't even effect me. Not everything is a big conspiracy, I assure you :rolleyes:

    Congratulations on your free dining. Just want to warn you that Sept is pretty hot in Florida. We have been in June, July, August, and Sept and I am going to tell you Sept is really, really humid. We think Aug/Sept is much hotter than June. Just wanted to warn you so your not shocked when you get there.

    There is actually a rule on the DIS board that personal PIN discount codes are not to be posted because they are not transferable. Since there's no public free dining offer, anything posted now is probably a personal PIN code.

    Well, I got a PIN. Kinda shocked that I did. It's even during the dates we are going...I'm pretty sure it's for Free Dining. (First half of February 2013, if you are curious.)

    My problem, Disney says the zip code of my shipping address does not match the name of the person this offer is made for. Well, it's my name, my email, I went on my Disney account and looked and my zip code is my actual zip code. Disney mailed me a vacation planning DVD to that zip code. So I do not know what to do to fix this. :confused3

    We had the same issue! I called the phone number which was mentioned in the pin mail and the cast member on the phone found out that for whatever reason a totally different street adress was assigned to our pin code. After he made sure we were the correct persons he changed the data and after that I was able to access the deal with the pin code online!
    So maybe you give it a try and call them!

    this happened to me also. turns out that one digit in our zipcode was entered incorrectly on their system, even though when i logged in to disney.com or disneyworld.com my address was showing correctly. they fixed it, it took roughly 20 mins to update on the system, and then hey presto! it was totally fine.

    only issue for us is that we are now not going to be able to go, and the PIN code is non-transferable :(

    Any pins floating around for November yet? I know they are non transferable, and am not looking for a code, just looking to see if there is any hope yet. The latest I have seen so far is September.

    Since we used a Travel Agent (my fella's boss has a relative that is one of those Disney-Only TAs), I had her take the PIN and run with it. And yes, it was Free Dining for the first half of February 2013, which is in fact when our week is scheduled.

    So she rebooked us and we saved $133.50! :yay:

    I heard that, you would would get free dining during your whole stay if one of your nights fall during the free dining dates. Is this correct?
    Thanks

    Nearly :-) The beginning of your vacation has to be within the free dining dates! So at least the first day must be a free dining day then you get free dining for the length of your stay.

    The only day that matters is the day you check in. If that day falls in the free dining promotion you get it for the whole stay up to 14 nights. If it doesn't, you aren't eligible for free dining at all.

    Hmmm...any truth to this? If the address matches, and last name matches, can someone else use??

    i had a code come in DD's name to our address. They allowed it even though she is not going. It took 2 phone calls though. The first cast member said no

    Similar situation....my name, my email address, but ex- husbands address. It was a bit of a pain to get fixed, but did get it done. Best I can figure out is they are using some sort of USPS address updater. I have had numerous problems with my name being tied to his address - even on my credit report. It's the house he bought after I kicked him out.

    The pin came via email to my email, but when I tried to use it on-line, it came up with his address.

    And I am now breathing a sigh of relief because all the ME vouchers and package booklet showed up yesterday to my address.

    I got a pin in the mail and it was part of the play and stay package --the offer was for free QS dining and a value resort...

    Since my reservation was made with the disney visa promo (before the prices were fixed and before the pin came ) I actually got a better deal with a better resort and the dining plan with 1 TS meal a day ...go figure lol.

    Congrats though!
