Question about dining/stay dates??

Hello. My daughter received a free dining pin yesterday and we are very excited. I am hoping to get some help from you all understanding a couple of things.
First the code is for 8/26-10/1, We actually would like to arrive on 10/1 and stay until 10/15. Would we be able to use the free dining for the entire stay even though we will be arriviing on the "last" day?
Also, I think I am understanding that this "free" dining is for the CS only plan and I am wondering if 1) Can we upgrade to the next plan for the difference in cost, I think it is $10 more? 2) If we did not upgrade, can we trade some cs meals for ts? Like 2 or 3 cs for 1 ts?
Thank you for any help you may be able give, you are all great!

In the past, Disney has allowed people to arrive on the last day and receive the free dining for the entire stay (max 14 nts). When I called, I didn't inquire about it as we will go at the beginning if we go at all.

As far as which dining plan, I was told it was the regular DDP (1 TS, 1 CS, 1 snack per person/day). I have read where people have upgraded to the deluxe but didn't inquire myself as I have no desire to do so. Last year, people were able to upgrade for the difference of the two plans.

I just thought of this, but why cant you go ahead and book the rooms right now in those times, and then when and if the codes come out call and add the free dining wouldnt that work. I know they only allow certain rooms for free dining, but it certainly would be better than them running out.

The pin code is for the basic dining plan. 1 TS, 1 CS and 1 snack.

They can't add the free dining. I just got the free dining pin and had a room only booked. They had to completely cancel out the room and re-book again as a package. I thought they could just add it on at first too.

I think (and someone please correct me if I'm wrong) that your TA or CRO can add FD to a package reservation (room & tickets), but not a room-only reservation.

Free dining Pin

Grr! I want a free dining PIN so bad! We're planning a trip Sept. 11-18. I've got a Disney VISA card, I've signed up for the Disney DVD, I've signed up on the Disney site for two different e-mail addresses (work and home), and I've saved an itenerary. What am I doing wrong???

I believe that this is true also. This is why my travel agent has booked my reservation as a package.

For the longest time, I didn't think I'd ever get a pin. I ordered a planning DVD every year, took trips every year, ordered the cruise DVD, have a Disney Visa, registered online, saved itineraries, and even bought DVC. DH said that since we bought DVC, we'd never get a pin. Well, finally, after 5 years, DH and I have both received pins this week. Hopefully, y'alls time for pins will come soon. Sending you both some pixie dust

How do you get these pin codes emailed to you?

Thanks so much!! My daughter called Disney today to ask some questions. First the free plan is the regular plan, 1 ts, 1cs, & 1 snack (just as someone on here said! thank you!!)
And the very good news for us is as long as we arrive on or before 10/1 the meal plan will carry for our entire 2 week stay.
Also, for some reason, I find a bit odd. I did a quote on their website and it quoted me $3,233 for our family. They quoted my daughter on the telephone for the same package $2,768, same people, same everything. A $465 dif. in our favor. I am a bit confused, but very pleased at the same time!
Thank you all, you ROCK!
