    Historically when do they usually announce the free dining for late Aug early Sept? We're booked for then and hoping it comes up.

    Anywhere from March to May, so we aren't totally out of luck yet, but given the way the discounts are going this year, I am not holding my breath. It will all depend on how the numbers look in a few months, and given some of the crowd predictions out there, it looks like August may not be so hard to fill this year..

    That's scary. Free dining is one of the reasons we can afford to go to WDW in sept.

    Us too.
    We stand to pay THOUSANDS more than before, because my kids are getting older and the lack of free dining (or the continued lessening of free dining).
    I know I'm not "entitled" to any discount. It just helps. Here's hoping! :)

    Unfortunately, if they don't offer it this Sept/Oct. we can not go! We had to cancel our trip last year because my husband got injured on the job (police officer) and had to undergo some major surgeries. So this year we are trying to make up for that but if we don't get free dining, we will have to forfeit till we can save some more.

    SOOooo here's to free dining!!! COME ON WDW we miss you!!!

    I am also hoping for free dining for our early September trip. It's our 10 year wedding anniversary trip so any little bit we can save would be awesome. And allow us to buy more while down there to bring home for the kids. :goodvibes

    I hope Disney sees this so they'll know how important fd is to all of us.

    Or maybe Pete can mention it in a podcast....seems like we see results after something that's in high demand or negative is mentioned ;)

    I had the PIN for FD Jan-Mar (Feb-Mar? I forget) but our trip isn't until May. We have a PIN for our stay (room-only discount) but a FD PIN would save us about $100 more than our current PIN. Hoping to see one released and applicable to my reservation (AKL).

    If it is released it is always all over the Disboards just before it happens. There will be no missing it.

    If you go to the home page of this website, up top there will be a button to click that days " podcasts". These are like mini radio shows that talk about a certain topic. You'll find quite a few about free dining and every other subject under the sun !!

    Subscribing.

    Is there any chance on free dining being around in early to mid October?

    Mouse savers has historical data on sales. Part of October has been blacked out from sales before.
