Usually the sale is available for a few months. If you are adding this person or these persons to your room, you should be ok.
If you can add them in the beginning, and drop them if they decide not to go, that works too.
The problem would be in finding additional rooms in the same resort later.
They sometimes add rooms, but you can't guarentee it.

Question: Does Disney just announce this deal or do they say "Coming April 6 a deal for free dining. Check back." Or something to that effect. Basically do they give you warning or do they just have the deal up? TIA

They tell you in advance. They'll put it up (hopefully) end of March/beginning of of April and then you know when to be ready, phone in hand, at 7 am.

I hope not. I may actually be on vacation when its time to call.

Question - would you book the room/package first or the flight first? Can you change your dates with the rooms without penalty?

Crazy people myself included had phone in had at 7am for Free Dining back in 2007. It took well over an hour to get booked. I remember being on the boards chatting and waiting with others.

I think it depends on how particular you are about room/resort and how flexible your dates are. If you KNOW you have to have a courtyard view at WL starting Sept 1, then I'd be on the phone as early as possible. The thing we must realize is that MOST people who visit Disney aren't nearly as crazy as we are so most people don't even hear about the deals until the commercials come on TV or the emails go out or you start seeing pop up ads.

Since rooms are limited and FD is really popular, things do fill up fast. Also, with the bounceback deals and a lot of rooms already booked with % off PINS, there might be even less rooms to fill. I think standard rooms go fast and probably also the Value resorts.

My best advice is to get a Disney Visa! Hopefully we'll have a few days before all the (other) crazies start to call!

And then us crazy people, myself included, will be back on the phone at 7 AM again 90 days out to make our ADR's.

Has anyone heard if it's harder to get ADR's now that you can't do 180 days out any more??????

I think just the more popular rooms sell out. I was booking value in 07 and i remember POP & Movies were sold out first. Then music... and last was sports. I have no idea about moderates or deluxes though. Hopefully someone could let us know.

Oh and I waited a week or two before booking our package. It's not like you have an hour to book or they sell out

If only it was available to Canadians
