New Free Dining Dates

So there are more free dining dates just released for Disney Visa holders:

for arrivals most nights, August 2 through August 19 (Cardmember-exclusive arrival dates), August 20 through September 29, November 24 through November 27 and December 7 through December 23, 2018

What is the likelihood that these dates will be offered to the general public?

With the excetion of the dates you have listed as Cardholder exlusives, all those other dates were released about a month ago and are up on the Disney website for anyone to book.

I feel stupid, Abby, because I am confused. I thought that Disney usually released free dining dates to Disney Visa holders first, and then to the general public. I know that free dining for 2018 was already released for many dates, but my dates were not included (8/6-8/14). So when I saw that Disney had released additional dates for Visa holders, I thought there was a possibility of those additional dates being released to the general public. So I’m confused by your answer.

Disney does release the deals to Disney Visa members first - and all the dates you have listed (August 20 through September 29, November 24 through November 27 and December 7 through December 23, 2018 ) were released back on April 24, 2018. It is now May 20, 2018 so all the deals you have listed except Aug 2 to Aug 19 are available for anyone to book on the Disney website. I do see mention of trips starting Aug 2 for Disney cardholders here (http://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2018/0...now-available/) but those dates are not listed on the Disney website at all so either it was a typo (it's possible someone typed 2 instead of 20) , a temporary offer or you have to call to get it. I truthfully think that Aug 2nd date was a typo as the Disney Food Blog is the only site where I've see mention of that particular date. Every other site I've looked at (and I looked again today) states Aug 20th as the start date.

Does that help?

Yes! Thank you, now I get it. So even if the August 2nd was NOT a typo, it still doesn’t mean that those “new” dates will be released for us ordinary folks, lol ��

Correct. If they were dates available for anyone to book, they would be listed on the Disney website and unfortunately they are not. I even tried with my account which is linked to my Disney Visa and the first date it gave was August 20th.

You're welcome. Glad I could help - would have been better if I could tell you your dates were free dining.

Cool. Expect hot, humid, rainy weather if you've never been in August before.

FWIW, Aug 2-20 is available for Canadians, which may have created some of the confusion ?

No wonder why - it's at the Disney VISA site, not the Disney World site which is where I looked
