    I booked yesterday because of limited availability in CSR Business Class, and we are going whether we get FD or not. When I added the DDP to my package, the CM said " and hopefully you will get FD for that time". So, I don't know if that means anything but I thought I would pass it along...

    I've been booking ADR's each day; however, I don't have an actual resort reservation yet. You don't need to stay on property to make ADR's. So far, I've woken up each morning and booked one ADR for 180 days out, and had no problems getting whatever I want.

    Ooh, that sounds hopeful. Sounds like some people who have talked to CMs within the past couple of days have heard some promising remarks. What dates did you book at CSR?:thumbsup2

    I'm guessing since the last day to book discounted rooms is tomorrow that the next offer, hopefully free dining, will be released after this current offer is no longer available to book. Crossing my fingers we hear soon what the next offer is!

    Actually the atual promotion is not finished tomorrow! Only for certain dates it will finish tomorrow but the promotion will stay valid for later arrival days until march 31st. That's why I don't expect any new promotion before April...
    But maybe we are lucky ?! Who knows....:thumbsup2

    I guess I was mistaken...I missed the second part that said book by march 31. Maybe you are right about us having to wait until April. Who really knows at this point!

    My Castmember said the same. He suggested I add dining and when / if they come out with free dining all they have to change is the code.

    I'm so confused! When I look on the Disney Special Offers page it says Book by May 31st...where are you seeing March?

    I just took a peak at the website. my vacation starts sept 7th, but the calendar only had through the 3 or 4th of sept highlighted? :confused3

    Tomorrow is march 7th I should be able to book my first day of dining?

    why arent they releasing park hours yet for sept.

    I guess Im just impatient. I will feel much better if FD is announced too.

    Just an FYI too, some people (including myself) have only been able to book the first days ADR's on the website but nothing beyond that - it's not recognizing that we are staying onsite and get the +10 days to book. I had to wait and call at 7am, then was on hold for 45 minutes. I know some people had luck trying it on different apps (I tried it on my ipad vs. the laptop but it still didn't work, so ended up having to call). Good luck!
