Has anyone gotten a discount or free dining with a preferred room at POR ?

I was just checking to see if I could get a September discount or free dining for a preferred room in AB section at POR and it is not available for preferred. Do they ever give a discount or free dining for the preferred rooms there ?

If they release a free dining promo for December I'm hoping to upgrade existing reservation from garden to preferred. Right now it's available for our dates at rack rate but I booked with AAA discount and it's not available at the discounted rate. We'll see what happens in the next couple of months....

We were there last September with FD--I had a garden view booked but were sprinkled with pixie dust and were upgraded to building 14!

It may just be unavailability for the specific dates you are asking for. If it's not available for just one night, it will come back that it's not available for the whole trip.

It was awesome-we had a corner room right by the pathway to the food court. When we went back in January we had garden view and we were in building 17, still a great location but we were definitely spoiled from the previous trip

You got 2 misinformed CMs. I have a POR preferred room booked for Sept.

Are you going the end of Sept? It seems that the weeks at the end of Sept is more popular then the beginning of Sept. I booked our POR preferred room with FD on the morning that FD was announced to the gen public but I have seen preferred rooms still offered as recent as a few days ago. Our dates are 9/2 to 9/10.

Oh ok maybe they only had so many preferred rooms for the free dining then. I think you will like it, we stayed there years ago when it was called Dixie Landings. Having a preferred room will make a big difference because it is a big resort. I loved it when we went except the walking lol. Thats why I want a preferred room. I have stayed in value, moderate and deluxe. Actually all of them were nice but I prefer moderates or deluxes.

I think the only way to get preferred at por during a free dining promo is to get the disney visa and be able to book a few days before it comes open to the general public. POR is so much cheaper for a family of 5 than any other resort and because of its size preferred is well, preferred. Lol
