    Hey All,

    quick question...
    I am not new to Disney, but new to discounts and in this economy, it's all about them :cool2:

    So with the Free Dining Discount, what months/dates are expected to be included. I have only seen the month of Septmeber as a free dining discount, does this ever apply to stays in October or November?

    thanks in advance!!

    The Oct-Dec deals typically come out in mid-July/early August. There have been select dates in those months for FD, but no one knows if that will be the case this year. We will have to wait awhile to find out, but rest assured, this site will have the info first.
