Free dining rumors?

I am hearing little rumblings here and there about free dining being announced this coming Monday for Disney Visa holders and then the GP on May 1st. I usually do not take too much stock in rumors, but I am always excited to partake in the FDP frenzy every year! It is kind of fun to watch people go all crazy waiting for it ( me included wink )

Has anyone else heard the rumors?

Yes I have heard several rumors about it being announced. It does usually get announced around the end of April, beginning of May. And I was just adding that nothing is confirmed by Disney yet, but Kristen beat me to it! awesome

I have heard those rumors from a TA that I've worked with. Nothing has been confirmed by Disney yet.

It definitely seems like every year the rumors are harder to come by! I never believe anything until I hear Disney confirmation, but it is still kind of fun to see what is out there in regards to discounts and FD gossip.

Haven't heard any rumors, but this post made me happy. biggrin I've been checking every day since everything I've seen indicates Disney usually releases the dates around this time. Hoping it works out. crossfingers And if they offer the room discount, OH BOY, that could mean BIG things for my vacation. yay

That's for 2016 though Watchmaker. The rumors Nikki is talking about would be for fall/winter 2015.

What you get in the UK and what we get in the states are totally different. Guess I should say that the offers and releases are different. That is what gets some people confused.

Top one is what is on the UK Disney site & bottom two are what's on the U.S. Site for special offers.

It varies from airlines and time of year..Cheapest I've seen is about $400 one way, and dearest was $1.200..

I know MrHub...Yet when I tell some friends how much I spend on a Disney vacation, they think I'm nuts...I do think we are lucky to get these freebies...

Those deals for our UK friends are pretty super! If I start having my mail sent to your house, do you think I can qualify to book this deal?? silly
