    I don't think anything is coming. They're doing a big reboot on the reservations system as well. I think it's probably all just tied in together.

    Still holding out hope that we hear something about new discounts soon, although losing hope that today is the day :sad1:.

    Yep, there's almost always rumours by now, if it's happening. I think it's just a system upgrade. :(

    As much as I would like to see a new discount, I don't think it will happen until after December 31st, when the current discounts expire. That is how it usually works.

    I agree with you! That is how it usually works. We are just booked earlier than we normally are, so it just feels like a longer wait for us.

    Good point. I do have to say though that if nothing is released by the first week of January I will be done with the discount hunt for our May trip and just focus on finalizing our back up plan to stay at a timeshare. It's all good though, we'll still get to see Mickey either way:smickey:

    Agree that if no discounts by Dec. 31 I will go ahead and book (horrors!) rack rate for the room and cancel and rebook if a discount gets announced.

    We booked already too.... it made me too nervous not having our reservations and after we talked about it, we decided that we were going even if nothing came out. (although believe me, we'd MUCH rather have a discount!) But we also had to make our ADR's on Monday :banana: so I wanted to tie our dining plan to the ADR's. Soooo, if a discount comes out, I'll just call and keep my fingers crossed that they can apply it to our room.:worship:

    We booked a room only reservation at rack rate. Then, when a room only discount came up a few months later, they just applied it to our reservation without canceling and rebooking the reservation.

    The only time you have to rebook is if it says "New Bookings Only". Otherwise they'll just apply the new rate to your current reservation.

    a tiny ray of hope....I used the chat option and this is how it went:

    Thank you for contacting Disney. Please hold while we route your chat to a Disney Cast Member who will help you with your question.

    Welcome to Disney! My name is Erickson. How may I help you today?

    you: Did free dining come out today?

    Erickson: That's a great question, and I am happy to assist you! I haven't seen anything about free dining being offered today.

    you: Ok. Thank you Erickson. The systems are down and thought that might be a sign :)

    Erickson: It could be possible! When they do the magical enhancements, anything can happen! You might want to have a look in the morning!

    you: Thank you Erickson!!

    Ok, clinging to feeble hope now, but this is how it happened last time system went down as well, at least for me. The deal wasen't posted right when the system came back up, it happened the following day.

    But I think we are hoping against some pretty steeeeeeeep odds.
