    Joe,

    It looks like I am out of luck on FD this year, I check in 11/8. Do you think there is any possibility of any discount during that time, even room only maybe? It is the end of Jersey Week, but people there for that will be checking out close to my check in date.

    Thanks!!! :)

    I don't know anything about future discounts, but 11/8-11/11 is Wine and Dine Half Marathon weekend. It's also the last weekend of the food and wine festival at EPCOT. Plus, it's a holiday weekend. That is why free dining is blacked out until 11/11.

    Do you think they may offer a room only discount or just nothing?

    Called to check for a PIN, nothing...:sad1: I asked the CM if he had heard any rumors about public or visa offers, he said he heard something may be coming but it is more likely a room only discount rather than free dining but didn't think my dates would be included (12/18 - 12/24). He also said that if the free dining went public it would not overlap the dates of the PIN offer. So I would be out of luck if that were true too. Ugh, this is so frustrating.

    I wouldn't believe the CM completely. So many CM's have said SO many conflicting things about the Fall offers. Don't sweat it yet.

    Ok - I called and no pins:sad1:

    The cast member told me it would be a good idea to book for my dates as she stressed a few times that the quoted price would not be my final price. She very strongly suggested something was coming out and soon.

    So I am up in the air as to what to do. I guess I will shop around for flights and if I find a good one I will book that and then just book Disney next.

    My husband wants me to add 2 days to our trip but I just do not want to spend the additional money unless we can get a discount. I do not want to miss out on dining reservations if we do decide to go the 2 extra days so I feel like I should book and maybe cancel if no discounts become available but that means delaying flight purchase! So I am up in the air too. Who knew booking a vacation could be so stressful. Good news is the CM I spoke with was very nice and was sorry there was not a pin attached to me and said I could keep calling. I told him I did not want to keep bugging them and he said it is absolutely no problem to keep checking. That made me feel a tiny bit better.

    Sorry that neither of you had a pin. :( I would not put a whole lot of faith into anything the cms tell you. Many were saying that NO free dining would be offered this year, and we all know that did not pan out. I am keeping my fingers crossed, but I truly do not feel confident about it at all as of yet. Maybe when something more concrete is released. Right now it is basically, it could be released but dates can be removed, so what dates? My dates? Your dates? Both of our dates? We will have no idea until it is actually here. Sadly that is sounding like August. :sad2:

    I can add to that to never put 100% faith in what anyone tells you, as each and every single leak has had elements that were completely wrong. To date, nobody has been 100% on every detail, be it wrong dates, wrong room/resort info, etc... I hated that so many were banking on LM rooms to be included in free dining and they were not.

    Don't take it to the bank until it's official.

    One other thing, there are many more sources of the same information and they sometimes get overlooked. The September free dining information was actually leaked 3 days earlier than it was here, by some lady in South America. Nobody paid her any attention and in fact she was right on everything she said....kinda sad. :confused3

    How long are you going for?, maybe you can do a room only on the 8-9-10 and start your pkg on the 11th. At least you could get some free dining.

    Iv totaly given up on the pin. Not even sure if I want it now anyway since there's very limited rooms left at por. I think alot of us here have a good shot at a visa/gp offer. At least I'm feeling a little bit hopeful thanks to black.

    Thank you for sharing this! I'm kinda in the same "lost hope" pin boat. I had to focus otherwise to keep from being bitter! I'm totally excited about this news....now I just hope the PIN users were low for 10/2 AND that's included in the public/visa offer.
