    I see that free dining starts on 14 August this year. Does anyone have any idea what dates it started in previous years?

    Thank you, Seahunt. But it was extended this year. Has that happened in the past, & if so, do you know the dates?

    As far as I know, the public extension happened last year for the first time, and was repeated this year, despite Disney's insistence that the era of big discounts was over.

    :) As Faldred posted above, last year was the first year for the FD extension.

    The FD extension last year became available on 7/27/09 for dates 9/27/09-12/17/09, and this year's extension showed up on 7/6/10 for dates Aug. 15 – Oct. 7, 2010, Oct. 22 – Oct. 28, 2010, Nov. 12 - Nov. 18, 2010, Nov. 27 – Dec. 2, 2010, Dec. 10 – Dec. 21, 2010.

    It's August 15 start date this year, not the 14th.

    Yes, general public free dining was extended to December again - but with far more blackout dates this time.
