So my dates are 11/9-11/16 would the FD apply to all of my trip?

No, it would not apply to any of your trip, unfortunately. Your check in date has to fall within the FD promo dates, so with this pin you would have to check in on 11/11 to receive the discount.
Well the reason I ask is they have worked with my mother about checking in before and they did it for the whole trip so. Dang it I need this for my honeymoon!
You can check in on the last day of a promo and have the FD discount applied to your entire stay, up to 14 nights, but if your check in day does not fall within the FD promo dates it does not apply to any of your stay. I have never heard of anyone checking in BEFORE a FD promo even starts and Disney applying it to their entire stay. Your only other option would be to do a 2 night room only reservation on Nov 9 and 10 and then start your package reservation on the 11th. You would have to pay out of pocket for food for 2 days, but you could pick up your package tickets up to 3 days early at Guest Services at Downtown Disney or one of the parks.
I wonder if there would be any price difference? Plus wouldn't I have to put a deposit on each or could it just be split up? And would we have to change rooms?
I too went to check my e-mail when I read OPs post and saw this e-mail from Disney Destinations. I was all then I opened it I doubt this will go public, but I really hope it does!
I have the same problem, arrive on the 3rd and even though I'm staying for 14 nights I don't qualify. Can't change my flights either. Oh well, here's hoping for a room discount offer.
Yes, if they are travelling with you. My sister and I had 2 rooms booked at POFQ, she got the pin and we were able to apply it to both rooms.
Going to have DH call once he get's up to check if there's a pin code for any of us. I will be ecstatic if there is, but this also gives me hope that FD will be extended for the GP as well.
I usually accept gracefully when I don't get these pins, because I never do. But this time I really am sad. Still happy for everyone getting them. I am thinking they won't have to go public, because many are taking advantage of the pins.
I got a pin but in my moms name at my email. What a bummer! This is the first time in a few years that she isn't going with us.
I would be so upset if this happened. To earn e-miles, DH ordered a planning dvd. Unfortunately he did it under the name Chuck Finley, which is not his real name. I told him I would kick his butt if "Chuck Finley" got a pin code and we didn't.
This email saved me $1,700!
Can't wait for November!!
These dates match up with my DD's band trip. We are planning on going down and having her stay with us for the remainder of Thanksgiving Week instead of going back on the bus with her band. I suppose I can't put her on our reservation because she won't be with us for the first three days, right? She would have to check in with us from day one...
I suppose its still a good deal even if three of us got Free Dining!
Don't worry, these pin codes usually DO turn into a general public offer. I have not received a pin code yet and maybe won't even get one but I'm confident we will get fd in November. Your only seeing a small % here on the boards that are getting them and some people have already moved there vacation to Sept to take advantage of that fd. Alot of people that will get these pin codes won't even use them.
To book the room only portion of the stay, you have to put down the equivalent of price of one nights stay. To book a package you have to put down a minimum $200 deposit. The balance on either package would just need to be paid off 45 days before check in. There is always a possibility you would need to change rooms, but they will link the reservations in the system, and most likely you won't have to.
Just called, and no PIN for me other than the April-Aug one so far. That's okay, though. Still going no matter what. Hopefully we will get lucky and it will go public. Fingers crossed for everyone needing this PIN! Good luck, everyone!
I got the same pin too in an email. I booked free dining yesterday morning and I received the email late afternoon.
What is the number to call to check if you have a PIN code?
TIA! hoping for some Pixie dust!
I got the PIN offer too! We were thinking of going Pop Warner week, but since we haven't bought any plane tickets yet, I can adjust the dates of our trip easily. Now I just have to decide how much I want to spend on our trip.
