    Just trying to crunch my numbers and my head hurts with the seemingly endless possibilities! Those of you that seem to be much "more in the know" than I will ever be, what is your "best guess" about FD or SPD? I figure there will probably be a room discount, but what are your thoughts about the others now that FD is coming for Sept? I am probably going Nov. 30-Dec. 5. so that is the time frame I am wondering about.
    Thanks in advance for your kind thoughts.

    Right now there are no rumors for Dec discounts. However the 30th will be the Saturday after Thanksgiving usually the week of Thanksgiving is blacked out and the discounts wouldn't normally start until Monday Dec 2.
    You might want to follow Danny25, he is usually right on and lets us know about discounts as soon as he knows. And post by him and black are not rumors but 100% facts, somehow they are in the know.

    The last couple of years, the discounts started either the friday or saturday after thanksgiving. We had free dining booked last year at the POR starting the saturday two days after thanksgiving so that is not blacked out. This year's discounts though who knows.

    Thanks for the information. I finally decided to run the numbers with a room discount, the stay/play/dine promotion and then free dining! It took me some time! I guess I will book based on the most expensive option and take whatever offer comes as more spending money. It is the only "safe" option for me for making a decision! I like to know facts before I decide.:thumbsup2 Again, thank you for your response.

    Actually they usually start a free dining promo the Saturday after Thanksgiving. This year Thanksgiving is late and the Pop Warner convention, that normally causes the first week of December to be blacked out, is scheduled a week later than normal. So, going by that and all the historical FD data for the last 9 years, if a free dining discount is offered for December, which I think there will be, it will probably cover November 30 - December 6 and December 14 - 19, give or take a day or two.

    Black and I and some others are bloggers and follow the past historical trends for free dining and discounts and keep track of what's going on in the industry. Danny has a friend or relative who works for Disney corporate and he leaks that information from them when he gets its.

    Most likely a free dining and and room only discounts for the dates you are looking at. Highly unlikely Stay/Play/Dine would be offered during that time frame.

    In 2012 we had a FD stay in mid December. I called about Bounceback and was only offered a room discount for: 11/30 thru 12/4 and 12/15 thru 12/18 (or 12/19, don't remember which). Very short discount windows.

    BB is just a guideline of what they might or might not offer. General public discounts are sometimes different.
