    Two more days until the current promotion ends! Could that mean Free Dining for 2013 is next? We'll just have to wait and see...so eager to get this trip zipped up so we can concentrate on getting a good deal on our flight!

    Thankfully, that's incorrect.
    You only have to stay for 3, and many people have booked for less than 6 under this current offer.
    Disney likes to suggest longer in their ads to try to get you to stay longer, and has always had ads that read that way when offering this promotion.
    But there has always been a shorter minimum than listed in the ads. :thumbsup2

    Anyone has the option of upgrading their free plan to either the regular plan or the deluxe plan.

    I think there's a restriction on the British offer where they can't upgrade quick service to deluxe but on the US offer you can.

    I sure hope so! Getting super antsy about this. I just booked our ADRs for Feb. Prepaying for CRT really hurt!

    I called again last night, still nothing being released. She advised unsure if will be re-introduced, they only know that day. She did say that you can book package and if FD comes out you can alter your booking to include it x

    I see the current plan allows you to book through 9/29...Dont think FD for us will come out until at least then. Looks like we may have to wait a while after all :(

    The 30% room discount has expired. There's so much blank space on that Special Offers page now. Will they fill it in with Free Dining for next year? I hope so!

    One year free dining for the following fall was released before we even left for the current years fall trip. That was awesome....it really helped with the 'Disney depression' on check out day too, knowing we already had another trip booked LOL

    I booked a room only, anticipating (hopefully) a free dining plan for early Feb... If it doesn't happen I will try to talk my DH into shelling out the $$$ for Annual Passes, and purchase the TIW card.

    At least I know I have the roonm selection I prefer for now...

    In 8 years of free dining they have never had a free dining discount for the general public in June. They have had some random pin code emails for free dining in June. If for some reason you did get a free dining discount for your June dates then Disney would credit you the difference on your vacation total and charge back the difference to your credit card. The free dining thread on the Discounts board said it could take up to 2 months for them to give you the credit.

    You get the number of nights that you stay. So, with the "regular" (not quick service) Dining package, you'd get 6 table service meals and 6 quick service meals. (You'll also get 6 snacks and a refillable resort mug).

    Eat up! :)
