    It was the one with one table service and one sit down... And yes I am sure. I have no fairy god mother that I am aware of.

    Do you mean one table service and one counter service?

    The deluxe plan is 3 TS meals a day, so you must of had the regular DDP. :goodvibes

    In 9 years of free dining promos there has NEVER been a free dining discount that included the Ft. Wilderness campsites and there has NEVER been a free dining discount that included the deluxe dining plan.

    We stayed (deluxe resorts no dining plan) on room-only discount PIN codes in 2011 and are booked under one for this year but neither of my Disney Travel Co. invoices say PIN on them, if that helps.

    None of my free dining PIN offers have ever included the camp grounds that I've seen, all have been QSDP for value and DP for deluxe (I can't remember which one mods fell into). Seems weird that campgrounds would get better free dining than values?

    A pin code is something that you would have gotten either in the mail or by email. Sometimes there is one attached to your name and you get it by calling Disney. But it would not show up anywhere on your paperwork.

    Doesn't make good financial sense to offer free dining to the campsites. If I am looking correctly the most expensive one is $125/night? Then you can have a lot of people on a campsite. Many campers accommodate 6. It is $55/night or somewhere around there per person on the dining plan. They could really lose a lot of money by giving it free.

    Maybe someone made a mistake and gave it to you? Or maybe you had a very limited pin, cause I think if there were a lot of them you would hear more about it? Not saying you didn't have it, just that it is highly unlikely for you to get it again.

    :welcome:

    Unfortunately, DVC stays are not eligible for free dining. The free dining promotion requires paying rack rate for your room, and DVC is deeply discounted.

    Right no deluxe, but you can always upgrade the free dining offers to deluxe dining (nominal fee.) Just to clarify for others that there is that option.

    Does this mean that if I'm staying in a Value or Mod and the QS plan is offered for free, that I can pay the difference and get the Regular Plan? That would completely make my day as I'm not getting my hopes up about anything more than QS being offered for us. :0)

    Thanks! That is amazing news for my family! How do y'all feel about FD this year? So many people seem to think its not going to happen it seems. I've done all the "math" for my week and it looks like we will be there during prime FD season. :0)

    I think everyone is on edge about whether or not FD will be offered. I pray it will be, it saves us about $700 for the 2 of us!!! We always stay at the value resorts, we are only there to sleep and shower anyway so why get anthing else? The room discounts are rididculous for the values, I am lucky if I save $200 with them. All we can do is wait unfortunately. Sounds like something will be announced towards the end of the month though, from what I have read.

    Yes! though we already have it on a bounceback for Sept dates I am highly optimistic it will be offered. Personally I think it will be offered no later than the end of June for fall dates. So make sure you have your ADR's in order.:thumbsup2

    It seems every year people get all riled up and stressed over will it be offered and in the end it always is. ::yes::
