    We were at WDW the first full week of Feb this year and discounts for that period came out in early Oct. There was both a room only discount and the Stay, Play and Dine plan offered to the general public. It is a slow time of year.

    The bounce back offer you receive in Nov most likely will be for free dining in Aug and Sept 2014 if you are there before Nov 15 th. I'm not sure what it will be for resort guests after that date. But the bounce back offer we got was 35% of a deluxe resort while the general public discount was 30% or less for deluxe. So the bounce back is usually a better offer.

    I know there is an active offer, because I just booked a FREE dining bounce back for next August 20th. That is the first available date for FREE dining next August. The code is in the Welcome pack in your room. If you didn't get it ask the front desk to have housekeeping deliver it.
    Or call 407-939-1923 and ask them for the bounce back offer.

    It must be booked before you check out.

    Good Luck!!!

    If you were to book this and cancel it later, would the tickets be cancel-able too? Or would you cancel the room part but still be left with the tickets?

    Once you have booked the bounce back,can it be modified? We are looking to book it for the 3 of us now, but could I add a 4th person later on?

    Thanks for all the info! Just booked Free Dining for the end of August 2014. Free dining offer is available 8/20 through 9/29. CM was excellent. Shared that if you do not know exact dates you want to stay, you can reserve for up to 14 days, then modify down from there when you know your calendar better.

    What if you're not sure of your dates? Could you potentially book and later move your dates so long as they still fall within the BB period?

    Absolutely! When I was there in May I just called and threw down the deposit on some random days in October, and once my schedule firmed up mid-summer I called and changed it to the October dates that actually matched my schedule. And then just a few days ago I called to add on a few extra days!

    Thanks! This is exactly what I plan on doing. Picking some random dates in October (going for the Room discount - hoping for 35% on BC!) and then firming up with DH later next year.

    Yeah just toss down any random date, and then later you can modify it as your plans firm up. I'd recommend taking the Bounceback page home with you, so that when you start making proper plans for when to go, you'll be able to see which dates are and aren't included. You don't want to book something random then later change it to dates that aren't included in the Bounceback by accident :)

    The FD BB being offered currently starts in August of 2014 but in 2013 FD didn't start until September. We go in August every year so if we didn't book the BB last year we wouldn't have gotten fd.

    When in Nov/Dec does bounceback switch over to the room only offer for the following yr? We check out 11/17 and are interested in RO deal for Nov 2014, not FD.

    We just returned from 10 days at Pop with free dining that we booked last August as a bounceback (had to upgrade from QS dining).
