So I'll ask, has anyone heard about free dining for Nov 2013? Or is there a possibility this will not be offered this year?
The only free dining this year period has been through pin codes so far. The original dates for free dining were late Aug-mid Sept. The last few years the beginning of the year was included and only last year was Nov included, that I know of. This year they ran a Stay, Play, and Dine deal but it wasn't quite the discount that free dining was. I have a strong suspicion the S/P/D will be the new discount in place of free dining. Never hurts to see if you happen to have a free dining pin attached to your name. That's what happened for us. Good luck

Thumbs up

We are happy to get any discount, but would LOVE to get the free dining discount.

We aren't planning on being @ WDW till the end of December 2013 to till the first couple days of January 2014.

Can't wait!!

I know in the past we would receive pins either by email or snail mail, is it possible to call disney and see if your name is attached to a pin?

Yes! In fact that's how I found out about ours. I had received a few pins all year but was looking for free dining. The public offer never materialized and I never saw a free dining in snail or email. Happened to call last week to check and a free dining pin was on my name. Just call and ask the CM to please check for any pins. If you get one of the "challenged" ones, that act like they have no idea what that is, call back! I'll cross my fingers for you

If we receive one pin will we also get next pin or is it random?

Wow, thanks for the tip, I would have never thought to call. I always thought the only way to get them was email or snail mail. I'll call tonight!

You can always change discounts if a better one comes up but the codes are random to everyone but Disney. I'm sure they have a system but no one knows what it is. Getting one does not guarantee you another. If you already have a trip booked the chances of them releasing another pin in your name (until that trip is over) are slim in my opinion since the goal is to get you to come to Disney and you have already committed to going. Maybe someone else has some experience with this? Anyone receive a pin while having a trip booked?

I've seen it go both ways. Some get them with a res, some don't. I'd say chances are higher if you don't have a reservation though!

I definitely wouldn't wait to get a pin for booking. But, that's me. If I waited, I'm sure it wouldn't come! Just my luck!

Did you have any luck getting a PIN?

The only time I have ever received a pin is when I had a trip booked. I know, even to me it makes no sense what so ever, but it is true.

They just came out with their deal running through June 14 a few weeks ago. Dates and deals won't be released for a few months I'd say for Fall.

Only rumor is the latest one we've been discussing - no FD for values, QSDP for mods/deluxes for future offers.

I thought that rumor was specifically for the Aug/Sept FD offer. Has there been anything new about the rumor since Danny25 originally posted?

No, nothing new. But I took it to mean as a general change, not just Fall. I can't see them going back after that.
