Actually they've now extended that 4/3 offer through the middle of August.

Yes! You definitely can book online! Last year there was a seprate box that had a pic of goofy holding this big long sanwich that said Free Dining and you clicked on it and it to you thru the reservation process and added the free dining!

Interesting article. I'm guessing they will do something through the end of the year in order to get more people in the parks. We are going regardless at the end of Sept but either the 4/3 or free dining would be nice.

I always looked on the Disney UK site to see if free-dine is offered. I notice the last 2 years free-dining was always offered to the UK first before dis-visa holders and general public

Anybody know how Disney Visa card holders are notified of free dining. I know they get to book a few days before the general public but how do they let you know. Will they send a email??? do I need to keep an eye on the website? anyone remember from last year?

Right now I am currently booked CL....if free dining comes out and there are no CL rooms available....and my only choice is CL or free dining, chances are Im going to take CL...Would they really want someone to downgrade rather than just adjust it to make my current reservation w/free dining?

Free dining question?

I was wondering...with the free dining offer...is there already set dates for the offer? Can you buy it now? Do you need to be signed up for something in order to be eligible?

My boyfriend mentioned if there is free dining...we are going back for a 4 night trip, unless the 4/3 deal can be combined with free dining, then we would stay for the full 7! And to think that my boyfriend thought our trip would be a huge waste of money before we actually went! I turned him into a WDW fan!

Yep thats right.
I'm also booked CL but if Free Dining is announced and I can't get it with my CL room, I will downgrade.
