After waiting months for a free dining offer in August and then hoping that Disney would send us a free dining pin code I sent an email to Disney explaining that last year I went to WDW during the free dining period and was never offered the bounce back offer and that the other 4 groups in our party also did not receive the opportunity to book the bounce back offer prior to check-out. After a day I received a call from a cast member who verified that I stayed last year utilizing the free dining offer and stated that I should have been offered it. I asked if it was possible that I could book the bounce back offer now..... I was put on hold....and she came back and said I could.... Yeah!!!!
I booked Pop for 7 nights starting August 25th... I upgraded the quick service to the regular dining plan and got base tickets for $2,615. The ironic part was that when she called I was online pricing trips to Hershey park and the Jersey Shore thinking that Free Dining wasn't going to happen.
