Dealing with the same issue maybe they'll have a offer for that time frame. Since our dates are 11/9-11/16 I wonder if you could pay for dining on two days then get it 11/11-11/16 for free? The only reason I won't do two ressies is the risk of having to move rooms and having to use all the dining from the first before checkout

You would have to do two reservations, it is the only way sorry to say. I would do RO for the first 2 days paying OOP for food, then your FD Package. If you did purchase a DP for your first 2 nights you have to purchase Tickets on both pkg's making it cost ineffective. Dining credits are good till midnight of the day you check out.

I called and the CM, Eduardo, was not nice about checking at all. He said " I see you've called a lot asking about pin codes." I said I haven't ever called, then he said "oh you've been pricing a November trip a lot online" then he was like "you have no pin" and hung up.

Our dates are the 9-16th as well....none of us have any pin codes or received the email. If it is open to the public, I'm just wondering if it would be worth the two reservations....with 12 people and 4 rooms and 3 different resorts....and most of my party not ever having been to Disney- I feel like it would be a nightmare! But it also would save a lot of $$$.....guess I won't have to worry about it until if and when they open it to the general public.

Actually I'm going with my son and mother for her 70th bday. We're doing something different for our anniversary. When we went on our honeymoon, he had never been to Disney or on a plane. He thought it was going to be a relaxing vacation but I had already been to Disney world many times before and we all know this is NO relaxing vacation. So needless to say, I wore him out.(and not in the way everyone is thinking) I had him up early everyday for rope drop or character breakfasts. I felt bad, he had so many blisters and his legs were killing him. I've managed to get him to go a few more times over the years but he hasn't gone since 2005 when my son was 8. He said he would rather spend his time playing around in the garage. THAT'S JUST CRAZY TALK

Unfortunately we already have airfare booked. I don't really see why they blacked out at 11/1 though. I understand Jersey week is busier and we went during it a couple of years ago and it was offered, but for the 4 of us getting a TA rate for our room (Wife is a TA) it didn't make much sense to get it. This year though we are traveling with both nephews and my mother in law so the FD would be worthwhile this trip.

Then the CM told me they had no trouble filling the nemo suites and didn't know if they even had any for free dinning
Some people have reported on here that they have been able to apply the FD GP code and FD pin code to there reservations, the dates are just limited. If they were completely blacked out Disney would have to list it in the fine print legal verbiage, as they do with the LM room, and FW campsites and the 3 bedroom villas. I'm sure when the GP FD offer is released this summer it will be be the same situation with the Nemo rooms, available, but very limited.

Booking 2 packages would cost you MORE money, because you have to purchase tickets with MYW FD packages. To save money and take advantage of a FD offer, you would need book a room only reservation for 2 nights and start your FD package on the 11th. You can pick up your package tickets up to 3 days early at Guest Services at Downtown Disney or one of the 4 theme parks.

Yes, all free dining promos are good for length of stay - as long as you check in by the late day of a FD promo, they will apply it to your entire trip up to 14 nights.

One trip before they gave my mother it before when they arrived before it started because they were going to be there during the time it started.

No, that is not correct. Your CHECK IN date must fall within the FD promo dates to have the discount applied to your entire stay. If your check IN dates does not fall within those dates, even if every other day of your vacation, does they will not apply the discount to your reservation. There is no way around this, it is not up to the CMs discretion, that is how the WDW R
reservations system is set up.

There are ways around it. I've been a witness of it.
