My family is going Sept 15-21 this year. Should we go ahead and book our room and then add on the package with free dining or wait until they "hopefully" offer FD?

Joining in. We are going the week after Thanksgiving. I'm hoping for any kind of discount.

The theory goes that if everyone books without it, Disney won't need to offer it.
If you book a room, you might need to change resorts or room preference (standard, preferred) if a sale breaks, because your room type/resort might not be available for the sale.

So...it might not matter if you book or not, but I'm firmly in the camp of if everyone books without a sale, Disney has no incentive to HAVE a sale.

You can get to the old site this way, but I'm not sure how you're able to make reservations on the old site. All links from there appear to direct to the new Disney site.

Are you going with or without FD? If the answer is yes book what you want now. If offers come out and things need to change its easy and in the case they don't you'll be staying where you want.

So, if there is FD will it probably follow that BB offer and mods end 9/13?
That leaves us out. We check in 9/19.

The bounceback offer end date is exactly why I booked us to check in on the 13th, just to be safe! I hope that's not the case, though!

I am also afraid that the more of us that book our rooms/packages in hopes of free dining, will lose out if they decide they don't need to offer it to get us there. My family of four are going the last 2 weeks of August and I'm praying it comes out, but we will be going regardless. My fear about waiting too long to find out, is that if I don't have ADR's now, I may not get the restaurants we want. Soooo... I booked all of my TS meals already and I will cancel what we have to if it doesn't come out. There's no way we could do a TS everyday without a deal. I'll wait until May before I book a package and hope for the best.
