Is there anything better than Free Dining and Fastpasses?

I am hoping that will be the case this year because we really want to go in October. We will go earlier if needed though. I am guessing they will announce any new deals when the 4/3 deal is up on the 29th. ***Keeping fingers crossed!***
Since 2005, Disney has been offering the Free Dining promo for Magic Your way packages with a 3 night minimum and a 14 day maximum (Basic Dining Plan; 1 TS, 1 CS, 1 Snack per person per night) during the last part of August until the end of September, give or take a few days. The free dining offer is usually announced during the first week of April. The first couple of days it will only be open to Disney Visa holders and then will open up to the general public. The booking dates for 2008 for the general public were August 24 through September 20 and you had to book by June 22 to receive the FD offer.

Last September Disney Destinations sent out some emails that offered free dining pin codes for select dates in October, November and December. The only December dates were December 14 - 20. If you checked in by the 20th you could get the free dining offer through the 31st. These emails were random, not for the general public, and the codes were non-transferrable. About two weeks after that Disney Visa sent out a free dining code for their card holders for the same select dates in October, November and December. Those pin codes were not part of the regular Fall Dining promotion and there was no general public fd code offered for any of those dates.

Was that the offer through Disney Visa that you are referring to Linda?

Traditionally it has been for 3 - 14 nights (one year it was a maximum of 10, but at least in 07 it was 14).

Free dining has also, in the past, never been combinable with any other discount (such as the 4/3 deal)

The entire Dining board/forum will light up like the Osborne Family Lights!!!
The Food porn thread will spring to new life, and suddenly EVERYONE is discussing ADRs and where the best Salmon is.

I don't know about anyone else, but as for me, well I am waiting, that much is for sure, but calling it "patiently" would be a bit of a stretch
