    I'm not sure on the exact date, just keep an eye out, and call as early as you can. I'm also staying at Carribean Beach, and I also have those gift cards. Trust me the free dinning will be out for your dates, just be ready to call.

    It will be out my oringal date I was going was September 8th, and I had the free dinning, I had to change my date, to December though, because my wife didn't want my daughter to miss the first week of school. December was the only other time they were offering free dinning

    Yes your are correct. I was able to double dip. That's part of the reason they are not giving out the gift cards anymore for CBR

    Why do you think I'm telling people to trust me. I can't say how sorry but I hope you have a wonderful trip. And FYI my trip is not a bounce back I went in September last year. Keep your eyes peeled for that date they release it. Good luck I'm sure you won't have a problem adding it to your reservation when they release the promo

    Always call. Never rely on the website. As soon as they put it out it will be up on every forum so just make sure you call early. On the day they release it you will either not be able to even get through. It will tell you all circuits are busy and hang up on you. Keep your finger on the redial button and keep calling back you will eventually get through. Then be prepared for about a hour wait to talk to someone. Just remember never quit trying. That's what they want you to do :). Free dinning had a 3 night minimum. Keep that in mind

    So no August 11 start? Even for Disnsey Visa holders. Last year they had an extra week of dates at the beginning.

    I think August 11th is still on. I had spoke with one of my friends and they said if you really want to play it safe. Don't book till August 25. But I'm still 90% sure you should be able to get it by the 11th if you are a Disney visa card holder

    Thanks for the quick response. Our dates are set in stone but no matter if we get FD or not, we will have a blast.

    If you booked a trip last September for this September (and now changed it to this December), and are receiving free dining, that is called a FREE DINING BOUNCE-BACK OFFER. The dates you have been misleading everyone here with are the dates of the bounce-back offer, not this Fall's Free Dining offer. It sounds like you got a good deal. Please don't give people a list of dates and tell them that those are the FD promotion dates. . . people might make non-refundable plane reservations around this misinformation.

    You said that you have Free Dining and that promotion hasn't been released yet. If it isn't a BB offer, then I am confused. Can you show an attachment of your reservation?
