I just booked our first WDW trip for Spring Break next year...Can't wait to stay in a LM room at AoA! It looks very fun! We'll be there from March 10-15th.

Got our reservations for the Little Mermaid building October 22 - 26. I've got little girls so Little Mermaid was the only option for us. Too bad, there are no more Free Dining packages for the LM buildings.

Never were FD

I'm pretty sure there never were any FD set aside for LM. Someone can correct me, but for the specials that just came out July 12, LM was expressely blacked out. Since everyone who wants a value resort wants to stay there, I imagine they will be over 90% booked. The people who really need FD are switching over to another value and that is the only way people now are getting LM rooms in the October time frame. I tried 4 or more times a day for over a month every single day and there were no LM rooms available at all for my week until the day the FD was released to the GP. We can only hope that with everyone feeling FD is more important than Ariel, that they might open up some kind of special for the LM rooms.

They did have free dining for the Aug. Sept. Promotion for LM section because we have it for our stay Sept.15.

I wonder why the free dining is excluded the week we are there (10/14-10/20). I read it is the 4th least crowded week of the year (I forgot which site). So wouldn't it make sense to have FD that week to attract more people?

We would not get it anyway (LM room), but it just makes me wonder.

I hope you're right about it being a less crowded week since we'll be there too!

I am checking as well. I need a LM room just for Nov 22nd. I already have one for FD Nov 23 - Dec 2nd. I used the pin that was out. If I can't find a LM room for the night I guess we will be doing a split stay. I would love to do a royal guest room for that night. My DD would love it. She has no idea about LM yet. She thinks we are staying at movies.

On other threads on this topic, some people have said that the LM rooms were filled by people who got free dining pin codes before Disney Visa and General Public codes came out.

But I'm wondering why it's excluded that week for all resorts, not just AoA..
