    Couple questions for those who have booked this before.
    Does the free dining just appear in the Special Offers section of Disney's website when it becomes available?
    If you've already booked a Magic My Way package, can you change the package to add free dining on the website?
    I've read about people booking as early as 3 or 4 AM online, but haven't been able to find a clear answer about changing an existing package online.
    Thanks guys!

    This is how I booked mine last year. A friend saw it up at about 4am she called and woke me up. I already had a package booked so I clicked "Change Reservation" then under "Standard Price Package" I clicked change and free dining was there. I was able to change it within minutes but I guess the site crashed later that day.

    This is great info! Thanks! Except I think that functionality to change online might be gone now... I'm only seeing the phone number to call now. This is what mine looks like when I go to my reservations:

    Anybody know for sure if that functionally has been completely removed?
    Thanks again!

    We probably won't know until there is an actual Promo available to update. I'm fairly certain you cannot change your dates via MDE. But if you're just updating your current "Standard Price Package" to one of the (soon to be released most likely but no one can be sure until Disney tells us) promos, then it should be available to do via the website.

    I hope so! Thanks!

    I was able to do it this morning but sometimes MDE is buggy and I have to refresh a few times. I have also noticed that if I've called to make a change then my online access to change will disappear.

    Oh man... I already made one change to my package online. I wonder if that changes/removes online access too. Maybe something dumb like only your first change can be made online. I might just call and ask if that's the case and if they can flip my online access back on. Thanks for the information!

    If these dates hold up, looks like I'm going to miss Free Dining. If it means missing the crowds, I'm OK with that! LOL!

    Has any percentage off of room dates been released yet?

    Checked on my PC today. The change link is there! For some reason not on mobile site.

    Yeah, Fastpasses are really the only thing that work better on the app. It's almost always best to update/change via the web.

    When I click the link now, it just says no valid offers. If the rumors are true, sometime tomorrow when I click the link, free dining should just show up? I have a 6 night stay at Pop Century, 5 day park hopper tickets, beginning September 3.

    I'd keep an eye on mousesavers.com. They will assuredly post when/if it becomes available.

    Held for 52 minutes this morning just to find out there's no free dining availability for my trip... BC, arriving 11/26. She tried to get me to upgrade to club level with "free" dining for $700 more than I'm currently paying. I called to try to get a discount.....

    Availability seems to be pretty slim for September. The website has given me nothing but problems this morning and finally got through around 8:00 and am in the land of hold. I have a feeling I may have missed booking for September.

    Why does it "feel" like I got a better deal by taking my 30% off room rate this summer?
