Subscribing! Just booking POFQ room only from 12/31 - 1/6. I would have preferred to check in on 12/29 but the room rates were too expensive so I settled for 2 days later. Our 10-year anniversary is on 12/31 so wanted to be in our happy place on that day! Hopefully there is no huge snowstorm that keeps us stuck in Chicago at the airport!!! Any chance there will be discounts for the 1st week in January (not counting 12/31 or 1/1 I'm sure)? Crossing fingers!!!! Would love to save some money!!

Also hoping for a January discount! I really want free dining, have the room booked at POR but I'm watching airfare and willing to be flexible with our dates to get the best deal. Does anyone know what the blackout dates were for last years January free dining promo??

I saw it somewhere. What I wrote down from that is that in 2012 free dining was offered:
Sun. Jan. 8 - 12 (Thurs.)
Sat. Jan. 21-Feb. 2 (Thurs.)
Sat. Feb. 11-16 (Thurs.)

I think there were also March dates, and maybe end of Feb.

Forgot to add that in my experience, the days of the week are more important than the dates. And how the holidays fall.
If the sale ran from Sun. to Thurs., it's more likely to do so (though not 100%), but not as likely on the exact same dates, if that makes sense.
So, for example, based on last year's dates, FD ended the Thurs. before MLK, and resumed the Sat. after.
MLK day is a week later this year. How that will affect things...who knows?

ETA: I'm going to go out on a limb and make a prediction. IF there is FD for January/February, my guess is:
Jan. 6-17
Jan. 26-31
Feb. 9-14

Let me know if I get those right! LOLOL

I hope that you're right, and that LM rooms at AoA are included. I can hope!

I must be obsessing-I just remembered I had a dream last night that AoA was included in free dinning. What's even stranger is at I'm not even planning on staying there! Weird!!
