    I just logged in via the new site and this is what the description of my packages is:
    Disney's Port Orleans Resort – Riverside confirmation
    September 13-27, 2013
    14 Nights, 15 Days
    Check in after 3:00:00pm, September 13
    Check out before 11:00:00am, September 27

    Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside-Standard View
    MYW Pkg + FREE Dining
    2013 Table Service Meals - Adult, 2013 Quick Service Meals, 2013 Two Quick Service Meals per night

    This is the regular plan.. says 1 table and TWO quick service.. when we made the ressie it was 1,1,1 ... has there been a change in the dining plan?

    I plan to call tomorrow and see..

    I think it's just the website being wonky.

    It's less than a week away from the new year... definitely think we would have heard of a change like that by now.

    I agree - it is probably the website having issues. Since they have been testing or introducing the new site, I have seen all kinds of weird things and run into all kinds of inconsistencies. I just checked the 2013 dining plan documentation which has been update recently to include restaurants that hadn't signed previously, and it still states 1 TS, 1 QS and 1 snack.

    How where you able to get free dining already? Did you have a pin or was it a bounceback?

    I haven't heard of PINs including September yet so it looks like a bounceback reservation.

    It was a bounceback.. 14 days of free dining without having to worry and pray a discount comes out!

    Interesting my reservations are listing the same thing about the table service and 2 quick service. I figured it was an error, but wonder if we can hold them to it? I printed out the page just in case.

    Everything else still states the correct amount of entitlements - including the brochure. It's just a website glitch - they won't honor it. If they honored everything that website has been saying with the updates people would be dining at Akershus 7 days in a row or people that are missing on the reservation wouldn't get credits at all.
