hi, I'm new here but have been obsessed with Disney my entire life. I used to wake my mom up every morning since I was 3 at about 4:30am and beg her to put on beauty and the beast for me. it'd last me until she was ready to wake up. I still love it just as much. anyways, ffw a few years and I am taking my first adult trip to Disney world for me and my husband's 5 year anniversary. we booked for Nov 10-18. I have read much about free dining/room discounts being offered at certain times but there are limitations on dates/first come first serve for whoever gets the deal first. if I'm correct, it seems Jo one knows if/when those deals will be offered in 2013. can you tell me more about the deals, when/how they are offered, and can they be applied to your trip if you've already booked? would you be refunded if you already purchased a dining plan, for instance? is the time we are going usually eligible or ineligible for the promotion? I'm afraid of feeling stupid for missing the deal because we can barely afford this trip as is. if I knew we'd spent $700 more than we needed to for booking at the wrong time of the year (therefore not being eligible for a huge promotion/discount), I'd have a hard time getting over it.
