    So glad to hear possible plans of the extension :). We want to check in on September 28th so we get a good week of F&W as well as letting the kids enjoy the Halloween party. Thanks for posting :)

    Thanks Joe, I'm really glad to hear the leaks that it should go public.
    Disney seems to have forgotten to give me a Pin code this year and we are hoping to check in Nov 21st.
    We really do appreicate all that you and Danny do to keep us as informed as possible.
    I've got my Visa on standby and I'm ready to book once it opens up.
    Thanks again, you made my day.

    Is it time to give up hope for free dining in late Aug? I didn't win the PIN lottery. We did opt to pay for the QS dining package. The Jury is out whether it makes financial sense, however it does make for a less stress vacation not having to worry about spending too much or skimping.

    I think your best bet is to hope really hard for a PIN code.

    This gives me some hope! I think my girls ask me everyday if we are going back to Disney and my husband, that tolerates our obsession, has started to ask if I have heard anything about free dining. Maybe he is secretly coming over from the dark side! :rotfl: Free dining saves us $1000 at least and that means we can afford to go.:cool1:

    Anything is possible, but not as likely. Also, if a certain date range sells well on the PIN, they would pull that from the public offer.

    Don't forget too, that you can check in on the last day of the offer and continue your trip up to 14 days beyond that.

    Thanks Joe! Waiting and hoping. My dates fit. Into current pin dates quite well, but my luck it will likely be one if the sets of dates that is pulled due to high sales. Guess we won't know for sure until early August though. Waiting as always!

    Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have been patiently (okay maybe not so patiently) waiting for a PIN code for our December dates (12/1-12/8). This news gives me hope!

    Hi Tinker Pam--they seem to have forgotten us too but seem to have remembered our entire extended family. Of course we are the only ones planning to go. We are also checking in on the 21st. I hope we get some free dining as three of our children are Disney adults.

    Sounds promising! My dates (dec. 3rd-18th) are set, flight and rental car is booked. Since I have an AP all there's left to do is book a room at a value resort.
    If free dining is available during my dates, I will take it with the miminum ticket days required to get the offer. If not, I'll book an already discounted room through expedia Germany. So I won't loose anything if I wait. But it just feels so much better to be finally all booked. So come on october-december offers :coffee:
    Thanks OP for the heads up :thumbsup2

    Last year (if not the year prior as well) late August was not available under FD.

    My guess is that it's a very popular time for those coming from the NE, where classes don't start until after Labor Day.
