Anyone know if the Little Mermaid rooms at AoA were excluded last time they did free dining? Or were they even open then? We have a LM room booked for October, and I have everything crossed for free dining, but I know some discounts have excluded the LM rooms. I would be willing to change resorts, but hope I won't need do!

The standard Little Mermaid rooms are blacked out for virtually all discounts. They keep them pretty much booked solid with no discounts. When they first opened last year a few people people got a 10% AAA discount and they were included in about 1 weeks worth of free dining in early September last year - but really those few FD dates were simply put out there because the Little Mermaid rooms opened ahead of schedule. There really hasn't been anything since and I don't think there will be for a long time. The discounts won't come for the LM standard rooms until the "newness" of the rooms wears off, and that could take a few years.

The LM rooms were mostly excluded from all offers. I say mostly because when they first opened they were included, but it seemed to be an error and it was only for a short period of time. Everything else they have not been included with any offers.

We can predict and often get it right, but we can't read minds....so nothing is 100% until it happens.
I'm perfectly fine with someone thinking that my predictions and info might be off by a few days, but being called a liar and accused of purposely posting inaccurate data and information is quite a different thing and quite unacceptable. Ive been to WDW and Disneyland countless times over my 40 years and I've gone to WDW every year since 2005 on a free dining discount. I used to be a travel agent and booked hundreds of people under free dining discounts. Like you I have kept personal records and have an obscene amount of historical data on free dining, annual Orange County and Orlando area conventions and sporting events and Ive tracked all WDW and DL resort discounts even before 2005. I parlayed my love of travel, tracking discounts and saving families money into a job at a large internet travel site where I have a travel and discount blog where I reach thousands of people each week. I certainly can't share my personal information on a public message board, but I've never in all these years seen or heard someone call out others for trying to purposely sabotage others vacation plans by passing incorrect information and historical data. It's truly unbelievable and despicable. I truly love participating in these boards and helping people, but will not help or post info or links for individuals that attack others. People who are so unkind can just learn to use Google ;-) Apparently the mods have been informed about this issue and some other similar situations and are monitoring very closely. I've been advised that this is the perfect situation for the Dis Block Feature, and that's probably a good idea ;-)

My DH just says, "Whatever you want honey" and says it with a glazed look in his eyes. He also said even if he doesn't like something while on vacation, I won't hear a peep out of him as long as I stop asking him what he thinks

Just pointing it out. Sure we could all be way off if Disney decides to throw us a curve, but that would mean a large chunk of dates not discounted and beginning this one on a holiday.
I guess anything is possible, but I don't see much validity on that post.
