    Yup, this. SPD offer IF it is available MIGHT be better, might not. Has to be only about $500 more from what we are paying MAX to be worth it, otherwise we'd be better paying OOP for food. (Can you tell DH is an accountant! :rotfl:) We're planning to hit Publix and/or Walmart anyway for a few snacks, water, MT Dew for DH, etc, and will probably eat off-property a few times as well for a change of pace.

    Still hoping there is going to be some sort of discount for our Oct/Nov trip!! However waiting for the July announcement (if there is one) is killing us! :lmao:

    We are moving our Aug. trip to Oct. 16-20 and plan to stay at AoA as well. This will actually just be a mommy/daughter trip as my boys have other committments. I am so excited because we are going to do MNSSHP (hopefully waiting on dates to be released), plus the food and wine fest.

    October calendar has been released. The days MK closes at 7 is a pretty good indicator when the party will be.

    also would love a prediction for this! On MouseSavers historical discounts, looks like FD was offered for my travel dates (now Oct 6-13) the last 3 years. Honestly wondering why the prediction is for August and September only?? (I'm sure y'all know something I don't... I'm relatively a complete newbie!)

    I have talked to cast members twice and they have said each time to check around July for discounts later in Oct/Nov. Which is hard since patience is not my strongest suit! :lmao: Guess its time to learn some!

    Hope this helps :thumbsup2

    Mousesavers doesn't show the blackout dates for the deals, but the historical info is good to use for past release dates. Last year's free dining dates for Oct. we're Oct. 1-4 and Oct. 19-31. The 2011 dates were similar. The middle of October is blacked out from most offers. There is no way to know what discounts will be available this year. You will see them here on Disboards well in advance of going live.

    The Aug/Sept free dining is somewhat predictable because they offered a bounceback for that time period, and it is the original timeframe for the offer. That timeframe is considered "late summer". The "fall" offer is for Oct-Dec, and typically comes out in July or early August. It will be a few months before we hear anything for October.

    This is correct. The blackout dates for Oct are around Columbus day. Columbus Day is later in the month this year, so I am hoping that my dates, which are similar to yours, will have FD offered.

    Pikester, I've been thinking the same! My dates are 9/29-10/05. I was thinking we'd catch MNSSHP & F&W since both will be in the first week of commencement, but now I'm wondering if there's anything special about later dates that should be considered...does the action get better as it winds down??? I'm sitting anxious enough as it is without this, lol

    This is me! ;) We're going from Oct. 27th to the 4th and not knowing about FD is driving me a bit crazy.

    I am hoping for the same thing. We were able to take advantage of free dining last year, but I had to change our dates and pull my son out of school 2 days. I am hoping I won't have to do that this year. We are planning on going October 6 - October 10.

    In the past, during the Columbus Day blackout dates, was that blacked out for FD or all discounts?
