I have done everything suggested to get offers. We went 5 years ago. I have saved a vacation on WDW website. I sent off and got a new DVD a few months ago, but I have not received any of the offers you all are talking about via Email or Snail Mail

I like the idea of being close to the action
I had to buy another piece of luggage today and shoes and a floppy hat
The camping trip got a little hairy

You are not alone. We have been going every year for 12 years and have never gotten a pin.

1/2–3/24/13, 4/21–5/22/13 and
8/11–9/28/13.

I guess I will be moving my dates. We were going before my dh convention April 13-16. I think the 21st is a Sunday. This is going to be complicated. I will have to check in and out to start getting the percentage off.
I just got this in snail mail today but the free dining is for at least 5 nights and we are only going for 3. Maybe I can talk DH into going 2 more nights and changing our resort to make it even out?? Hmmmm, wishful thinking probably!

I don't know why the offer mailed says for 5 nights 6 days or if it is just showing an example of a 5ni/6day trip, but there is a 3 night minimum with 2 day tickets just like there always is.

You wouldn't have a problem if you meet those requirements.

Probably worth a call to check since we are going 3 nights with 2 day base tickets.

It does specifically say: "Enjoy a FREE Dining Plan when you purchase a non-discounted 5 night/6 day Walt Disney Travel Company Room and ticket package at select Disney Resort Hotels. For arrivals most nights 1/2-3/7/13."

ETA: Just called and both offers applied and the Room Only was better! I had the Disney Visa 25% RO discount already applied (it was only 25% at WL), and this PIN was for 35% off so an additional $140 in savings. The FD would have saved me @ $38! The RO worked better for us because of our dates and only staying 3 nights. Starting 2/14/13, the Resort cost/night goes way up.

I am curious about this as well! We have our trip planned for April 30 - May 7, and have a pin for RO discount. Not sure what would be cheaper, the RO or FD. Guess I will have to start pricing!!! If FD or something better comes along I guess I could change our dates. I have never been at this time of year so it is all new to me! Those of you going in April, how is the weather, crowds, etc?

I got the s/p/d offer for January 2013 at POFQ. I just called my travel agent and she called Disney for me. Saved me about $700!

Awesome!!! I could not figure out why people were saying they had to stay 5 nights when they didn't, but that wording definitely explains it!!

We went at the end of April this year and the weather was fabulous and the crowds weren't bad at all. We loved the Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot too. We loved the time of year so much we booked again 4/27-5/3 next year We are staying at POR in a Royal Guest room with a 30% off room code.

I've been going for my birthday 5/6 every year since 2006. It can be very hot. Crowds are very manageable but the parks are not empty. Flower fest is beautiful.

In general if booking a Value FD is better, a moderate I think they kind of break even and if deluxe then most % off better. I have gather that from other post here. Just price it out. Play with menu prices and room cost. It makes the planning fun and immerses you in Disney until you actually get there

I got mail from Disney Destinations the other day, I was so excited opening it hoping it was a PIN for FD or a discount or something for next fall, it was a "thank you for coming to see us" Mickey Mail almost exactly one month after our trip, I should have realized. THEN, last Saturday I get another piece of mail from Disney Destinations and I'm thinking "this HAS to be a PIN!" well, it was, but for this holiday season. Stop teasing me Mickey, send me something I can use
