Shoot.
Well, at least by knowing I have no shot at a discount I can just book a room whereever and not worry about needing to stay at a mod or delux to get fd. And I don't have to worry about waiting until said deal is released.

Exactly. Plus our district plans teacher conferences around then. Plus election day. So in a 12 day time frame we have 4 half days of school. It's crazy but might as well take advantage of it.

If you are a member of AAA, I am pretty sure I have received a room only discount with them during Jersey week in the past. Not the best discount, but it is something.

Subbing! I'm hoping for a room only pin or an extension to the current military discounts being offered. Since we won't find out about military discounts until the end of the summer (with the way things typically go) I'd love to lock in a room discount at least for early-mid November. We are hoping to run the Wine and Dine 1/2 and then enjoy the early Christmas decorations.

Thanksgiving week

So we are looking to plan an extended family vacation the week of thanksgiving. I know the crowds are going to be ...eeeewwww...but it is the only time everyones schedules mesh. Are there ever any pins for discounts or free dining over Thanksgiving? The cost is a little tough with out a deal! Thanks!

For free dining, you would have to check in the Thursday night before Thanksgiving week, but the free dining would last the length of your stay. Of course, this is based on the last four years--no guarantees with what they will offer this year.

With room only, it's possible you could have discounted nights on one end of the trip or the other, but doubtful during the peak of Thanksgiving break.

If you can arrive the Thursday before Thanksgiving, you can still get whatever discount is being offered up to the holiday applied to your entire stay. I have done this twice now and have gotten the free dining promotion both times without any kind of problem.

Does anyone know when the deals for free dining before Thanksgiving come out? Or any other deals for the Thanksgiving week? I have gotten the family more on the Disney side for the vacay planning but I could lock it in if I could add a discount!

I hear everyone taking about bad crowds during "Jersey Week", but the Touring Plans crowd calendars look really good - except for MK & Epcot at 8.5 that Saturday, the numbers are all 2-6. Is TP wrong? Is the Jersey Week crowd overhyped? Anyone have direct experience being there Veterans Day weekend in recent years?

We went last year. The only real crowds were in Epcot (last day of F&W) and there was a marathon. I don't recall meeting anyone from New Jersey! HA!

Thinking about checking in two days early if free dining if offered.

Even if we check in on last day of offer, we get dining for the week, right? Do regular room only discounts work this way too?

Also, anyone know about how much it is to upgrade from quick service to regular dining if free dining is offered?

At what point do you go for free dining over room only discount? Family of 5, but only one room (inlaws coming and one child is on there reservation). Staying value resort.

Head spinning at possibility of two extra days.
