The bigger issue for us is the cost of the room. Staying at POR even WITH a 20% discount will still run us almost $900 more than staying at Buena Vista Suites. That is a lot of money and I'm not willing to fork it over for a room that we don't spend all that much time in anyway. We also get a free breakfast at Buena Vista. That is easily worth another $100 for our family. We also don't have to worry that we might have to switch rooms midway just because we are in between promos. We will have a larger room and still have a pool for the kids to enjoy.

Free dining is the only promo for us that would make moving back to POR financially sensible. However, even if they offer it, it won't start early enough for us to take advantage of it. So, I've faced reality.
The free dining release date and promo dates were leaked/confirmed yesterday. The FD dates are September 2-25, 2013 and booking will open May 9.

We had already planned our trip with or without FD, but now that it's been confirmed it's going to save us a bundle and we're going to be eating way better than planned.

Far as I'm concerned, nothing short of serious family trauma is going to stop us from our Sept trip. I don't care if all we can do is a weekend of tent camping at FW and MNSSHP, I'z goin' ta Dizney for my annual Sept pilgrimage.

Annual package rates usually come out in August, so you would be able to book packages for 2014 at that point.

I am going the last week in august, partly because I was hoping to get free dining. But it doesnt look that way. I might shorten the trip if we have no discounts, I can stay at a friends house for free, but it took me 2 months to get a res for be our guest, so I will be def there for that! LOL There has to be SOME discount for that time frame, hopefully..what do you think??

I have to agree with you. I would love to go to Disney every year, but we can't afford it. I am not going to lie and say that I don't hope for free dining, but we save for the full amount and get a "bonus" if they have FD.
