    Generally the same, more or less.

    Given the dates on the card, I'd say it'd probably be 8/18-9/13, MAYBE the 20th, or so. I would say that the extended period for the "select Deluxes" would be the deluxe BB perk, which has always traditionally been more generous. I'd say that the chances of the last day being within 7 or even 14 days of the start of F&W are lower.

    Again, all guesses.

    Like I said, the dates given are good windows, and the 13th makes sense since it means that there would be no general admission guests doing FD during F&W.

    I'm checking in August 14 and am hoping for Free Dining too. I have applied a PIN so far and I think I got 25% off my mod.

    Can someone tell me what the Stay/Play/Dine deal is?

    I have gone in Sept in 2009, 2011 & 2012 and have always gotten FD.

    We got the bounceback during our stay last Sept., for next Sept. and it's free dining. It's interesting that the flyer that the pp. posted seems to exclude value's though. We booked ASMo free dining for this Sept. via the bounceback from last Sept.

    With this "Stay, Play and Dine" deal as well as the "bounceback" offer that is now out there, is confidence still high that their will be free dinning in September? I know at this point no one knows for sure but it seems to me that with these multiple offers, the chance is not good...

    Thoughts?

    With September most likely having free dining, how hard will CRT for breakfast and BOG/Ohana during 6pm -7:30pm diner?

    Will I need to be online at 6am of our 180+ window?

    Usually I don't need to do this, but also I don't usually go during free dining.

    I just called WDW to check on what offers were available and the CM said she didn't think FD would be offered for when we were going (Mid Sept) but she said they don't always know for sure. She said the best way to know when this offer would be made was to keep checking my email. :confused3

    Anyway, kinda disappointed but we will keep hope alive. :thumbsup2

    On a side note, the last two times I called Disney I got CMs that were "less than thrilled" about the phone call. They were very matter of fact, down to business and not very friendly. Seemed odd since every other time I have called the CMs were very friendly and excited about WDW.

    If you want BOG, yes! I was online at 6:00am 186 days before the night I wanted. There was a 4:50 and 8:20 available. This is for late August. It's been very hard to get. 'Ohana/CRT will be a little easier to get.

    If you want BOG, call as soon as you possibly can - free dining or no free dining.

    IMO
    1.Already gave out FD with pins and BB which was cut short due to huge response.
    2. Current BB offers room discounts till end of year.
    3. Way too many people holding reservations for AUG/SEPT making both resorts and restaurants look almost full. Thus why offer to general public. JMO

    One can only hope :thumbsup2

    This is why I'm afraid to book. The only way my family can go is with free dining. If I book, it looks fuller (if that's a word). Decisions. Decisions.
