I can't believe how easy it was. I called at 8:15 CT and wasn't on hold any. The CM picked up right away. He was very nice. It took about 5 minutes. He didn't ask for the code. He just added FD to my reservation.

Smile Booked the Free Dining!!

Doing the happy dance!! We are staying at Pop Aug 23-30. Just called and added on the Free Dining Plan through my Disney Visa. Received the Basic Plan which is one Table Service, one Quick Service and one Snack per person. They also offered the deluxe dining upgrade which was almost $800.00 more, but it's way to much money and food for us, plus I wanted something for free for once!!!

Don't worry, I'm sure you'll be fine. in 2007, I didn't even book it until JUNE and last year I had to wait until the gen. public could book ( using a TA) and I got it with no problem. We all think that EVERYONE is doing the same thing, but its really just a small number of us crazy people who watch and wait until all hours for the announcement. LOL

hang in there, I bet you'll be just fine, getting what you want.

This is how you get around that. . . go without him!

I have gone with just my daughter and I . . .will be 3 times now. One time I had my parents go with and split the room costs. I would really like him to go along, but he is just as happy staying at home and my daughter and I are free to do as we please.

Hmmm.. now thats not a bad idea! LOL! It would save me some money too You can get 4 w/an infant in POP right? My DS is 13 and way capable of helping w/the stroller, 5 yo, etc..... My neighbor is booking the same dates on Monday, so its not as if I'd have to drive alone either, this is sounding better!!!

I won't be upgrading. I think the basic plan will be plenty for our family. Plus I don't want to lose all that park touring time at sitdown resturaunts. Looking back at my past trips 1 TS per day is just about right.

Just added the Free Dining to our trip Pop Aug 23-30. Read it online that Disney Visa Card holders are now being offered FDP. So I called up DTC and they added to my reservation. Yes I am doing the happy dance !! It's the basic meal plan (1 Table, 1 Quick Service and 1 snack). They offered an upgrade for the Deluxe Plan at the rate of the basic plan which would have cost around $800.00, but it's was too much money and food for my family. Besides it's nice receiving something for free after all these years!!! Good Luck everyone.
