I am hoping for FD because my PIN had blackout dates during which we really need to travel (so that my kids don't miss school). So does anyone know if the FD offered in the past had Columbus weekend blacked out?:confused:

In the past free dining was mid-end of Aug to end of Sept, beginning of October. I don't think it went to Columbus day.

I was mainly referring to this past year when they did offer FD much longer...actually on into Dec. I understand that it's not the norm to offer it during these times though.

I'm not 100% sure, but I looked back at the deal info I had saved and I show that the FD extension that came out last July (on July 24, 2009 for Disney VISA cardholders, and on July 27, 2009 for general public) for September 27-December 17, 2009 stays, only mentioned possible black out dates of November 25 29, 2009 and then only due to availability.....

So IF they offer it again, unless they change the terms you might be in luck, as long as there is availability. :goodvibes

In 2009 there was a public free dining offer for check-ins from September 27 to December 17. Yes, that did include Columbus Day, and no, Columbus Day was not blacked out - the only blackouts were around Thanksgiving. That doesn't mean the same will happen in 2010.
