    Normally free dining is for a minimum 3 night stay, with 2 day park tickets. Good for up to, I believe, 14 night maximum.
    They tend to advertise different combos, trying to suggest to potential guest what a good amount of days/nights are, but if you check out the real details, it's not limited to what they suggest.

    If you are saying you thought the current Dec. sale (now available through 12/20) didn't apply to you because you are staying 5 nights, that is untrue. Call quickly!!!

    Hoping for late January FD! Already started making some ADR's, but FD will define if I'll use all of them or just a few.

    Waiting for the announcement for January (or lack thereof) During the time we will be there. . . in the past free dining was offered, which factored into the choice of dates, so I'm hoping. We have our package booked already. . .we have our dining reservations already, just waiting to hear if FD will be offered. I thought I had a ticker showing how long until our vacation, maybe it isn't showing up.

    really hope they include the week before thanksgiving. We have never been in November before and always go during sept or oct for free dining but want to try November for cooler temps and some Christmas decorations. Have they done free dining that week in the past?

    We had free dining the week before Thanksgiving in 2011, so I'm hoping for it in 2013.

    Has anyone received a pin code for 2013? I received about 452 of them for 2012, but of course I am not going in 2012.

    Just wondered if anyone had seen them or if anyone might know when they would come out?

    Thanks!

    I am fairly confident it will be offered. August has always been the FD time period. Fingers crossed and maybe we'll see you there.

    At the moment they are excluded from the free dining offer that is out right now. This is a new resort, it's popular and has a lot of bookings, so it appears they don't need to offer free dining to boost bookings at Little Mermaid between October/December. There were limited bookings at Little Mermaid in September available on the previous free dining offer that expired for booking in May.

    Whether or not this particular resort section is included in future offerings will depend on how well it sells without the promotion.

    we are first timers to wdw, and would love FD. we are planning a trip for sept 2013, as we had to cancel our plans for a trip this year due to health reasons.

    hoping that they release FD for sept 2013, as we are also planning a disney cruise, a visit to universal orlando and disneyland in the same trip, and it would help to save those $$$ :dance3:
