How funny! I'm thinking Southwest will probably be the cheapest but I'm still not sure we'll be able to swing it, particularly if FD isn't offerred. We used on of those trip calculator things and we can drive (including 1 night hotel each down and back) for less than $600 and maybe less than $500. I don't know if we'll be able to justify at least double that on flying.

I understand completely. I'm hoping airfare is only 250 roundtrip. Ive thought about taking a train but i don't think i could handle 24 hours on a train the anticipation of Disney is to much to wait 24 hours.

I got an email this week with 2 PIN Codes. One for Free Dining, which is only through March and the other was % off only through Sept 29.

Last year I received a PIN in Jan, the day after we booked our Oct. trip. And then in Feb., I received a 2nd PIN, also for the same time frame. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we get something for Nov.

This may be a dumb question but how do you sign up to receive a "pin" for FD?

Not a dumb question! It's really the luck of the draw, and there is no actual sign up. Try requesting the vacation DVD, putting in mock dates on the website a few times etc. all of those things will increase your chances of getting hope. Hope that helps!

I have gotten a couple of PINs in the mail, but none for November yet. Will the PINs keep coming even after I book the vacation or do they know I booked and stop sending them?

last week i recieved an e-mail from disney destinations with a pin for November not sure what it is yet though have to call .
and to the person asking how you get one i think the reason i got mine was when i ordered the planning dvd it asked when i was thinking about visiting and i put november. The reason i think that is because the e-mail started with...

"Thanks for checking out our Vacation Planning info. Now it's our move.
We just wanted to make sure you and your family have everything you need to plan your next Walt Disney World® Resort visit! And since you're thinking about coming in November, the offer to the right would be a great way to get the most magic out of your stay."

Any chance of discounts during Thanksgiving week or is that usually blacked out?

Yes, you will be able to apply the room discount. If you switch to a package, I believe you need to book a whole new reservation and they l refund whatever deposit you had on the room only reservation.

As for Veteran's Day weekend, you have to remember that that is also the F&W Festival Marathon weekend and it coincides with "Jersey Week". Basically, it's a mass exodus from NJ to WDW because all public schools have off on Thursday and Friday (and most schedule Wednesday off as well). Additionally, most schools will have off Monday the 11th because of Veteran's Day. So, discounts are normally blacked out starting that week until the Tuesday after Veteran's Day (I got there in a round-about way, right? lol).

And Thanksgiving week is usually blacked out as well. Sorry

Not overly busy. We'e normally used to 5s and 6s and I think on Thursday and Friday it's supposed to be 7s and maybe an 8. I can live with that!
