    Hi Erin, Thx. for being a wealth of information. Do you know when they announced the buy 4 get 3 free last year? I know I want to go Apr. 26-? depending on offers. When will they generally announce specials for this time frame?

    The "Buy 4 Get 3" promotion that happened earlier in 2009 was announced in mid-January.

    In the past, I might have told you that Disney typically announces major promotions about six months in advance. For example, in recent years this was the announcement window for the fall Free Dining promotions. However, 2009 has been a very atypical year for promotions. The Buy 4 Get 3 was an extraordinary and unprecedented offer. Nothing even close to that generous had been offered in at least a decade. Also this year, the Free Dining promotion was extended past the usual October cutoff into mid-December. With the way things are going, it's possible that new deals could happen at any time.

    My only advice is to keep your eyes open. I would be sure to subscribe to the newsletters at,,, and If there are promotions, these websites will be sure to announce them.
