2013 Free dining dates, anyone remember?

We're looking ahead (way ahead) and trying to plan our 2014 trip. We are thinking of arriving on Thanksgiving day....maybe the day after. I don't remember if this arrival dates are typically blacked out. Does anyone remember the arrival dates for past free dining for the fall/winter?
Thanks

2013 dates for general public free dining (second offer - the first offer was September only)

September 29, 2013 to October 2, 2013
October 18, 2013 to November 2, 2013
November 11, 2013 to November 23, 2013
December 12, 2013 to December 22, 2013

Thanksgiving was November 28. So about 4 days before Thanksgiving, the holiday itself, and the entire two weeks after were blacked out.

Check out this link, it gives history for the past few years on discount, announcement and book by dates.

While that page is good for release dates and book by dates, keep in mind that it does not show the blackout periods, and there are always several in the Fall (Oct-Dec) offers.

Last year, free dining was offered Sept 29-Dec 22/2013.

If they offer free dining -

If we check in on the 20 and check out on the 27 will the balance of our stay have the free dining offer? Or would we have to pay for the rest of our stay?

As long as your check in date is an eligible FD date, then you can get FD for your entire stay up to 14 nights.
