    Last month my family booked our WDW vacation for mid-December. I am curious if PIN codes are ever sent out to families that already have a vacation booked? My birthday is in December, which I have registered with Disney online, & I am hoping to receive a birthday PIN. But does that ever happen since I already have my trip booked???

    Yes it does. I booked my trip back in March for August with the free dining, I found that I could fly in and out cheaper on Saturday than on Sunday so I also booked a room only for 1 night. A couple of months later I got the room only pin and since then I have also gotten a pin for free dining for December. If you get the pin you can always apply it to your package that you have already booked.:thumbsup2

    I booked our Oct vacation on July 26 and received a PIN by email on July 28. So,yes, it happens. Good luck!

    Most all the PIN codes I received were for the dates I already made my FD ressie for.

    Now hoping for some 2010 codes...may be the only way we can go next year, unless they bring back the 4/3 deal.

    We booked our trip for August and DID NOT receive a pin code offer. We registered DH's birthday online and nothing. So it does not always happen. So we are staying on DVC points instead of a resort stay and cancelled our FD reservations for 2 rooms.

    I am really hoping to get one. We are currently set to have the Public FD offer. If I get a code, could I still use it since the FD is offered to the public? Or do they consider the Public FD a discount and wouldn't be able to use a PIN?:confused3

    If you got a PIN code for the Free Dining, you would be able to get the DDP rather than the QSDP at a value. I think the PIN vs the Public FD would be the same savings if you are staying at a mod or deluxe.
    Based on availability, you could switch to a value and use the PIN code.

    You cannot combine any discounts. So if you use the public FD discount and you happened to get a 40% off room rate PIN, you cannot use them both. You would have to run the numbers and see which one saves you more money.
    HTH!:)

    Chiming in to say that YES, you may get a PIN code even after you're already booked. It happened to me!

    What made it even better was that I was already using a code, and when I called to apply the PIN code, they took the discount off the already discounted price!

    BUT, this was 2 years ago, and I haven't received a PIN code since.
