RO appears fine as well.

Some additional information for free dining, these resorts appear to be excluded from free dining.

It's one of the most popular, smallest, and the free dining pin codes have been and continue to be in circulation...likely booking up those rooms.

I feel like that's punishing us....I booked this time of year in anticipation of FD (among other things!) Has POFQ been excluded before? Why not POFQ AND POR?

I hope this is just another incorrect rumor. Really, really, really ticking me off.

This may be the reason it could be excluded. POFQ is much smaller than POR. If it is booked up, there is no reason to offer a discount. I've seen so many posts in the last few days by people who say they will cancel if they don't get FD. Some are booking up the rooms with no intention of going without a discount and they are only hurting their chances by doing so.

Best of luck to you on Thursday!

Thanks. Like I said, it's not the only reason we booked, there were plenty of other reasons. I just never expected POFQ to be excluded if it was released. But it could be just another rumor. It just feels like we're being punished.........or really really unlucky.

Hello I was wondering if anyone knew what dates that free dining plan would be offered for. I would like to be there on Thanksgiving. If I went early enough and stay to thanksgiving is it possible to have the free dining carried over To include Thanksgiving day? Thank you for your help.

If you can check in by Nov. 23 (or anytime between Nov. 11-23), you can get FD for up to 14 nights.

FWIW, we received the free dining pin mailer. When I first looked into the moderate resorts, POFQ garden view rooms were available. I wasn't ready to book at that point. When I called back to book a week or so ago, they were no longer available and I had to book a POR royal room. If I had to venture a guess, they won't allot any additional rooms for the promo, just sell out what didn't book with the pin mailings.
