Usually, POFQ is excluded due toots small size...they don't usually give discounts.

We are booked at POFQ from Dec 5-14. However, if free dining comes out we will try and change to POR.

I don't think they will be excluded from FD should it be offered, but they have been excluded from room discount offers. But, if you have AAA, you can get 10% off your room there. Can't stack that with FD, but if you have no other option for discounts and want to be at POFQ, AAA is the best you might get.

We had free dining in August of 2010 at POFQ. We did book the first day it was released to Disney Visa, but there is a chance you can get it.

POFQ has never been excluded or blacked out from a free dining promo. Each resort is allotted a certain number of rooms under the free dining promos - numbers will fluctuate each year in accordance with the percentage of rooms they wish to book. Some resorts are more popular and will "sell out" of free dining rooms, while other resorts will have free dining rooms available during the entire timer frame of the FD promo booking dates. It's always best to have a back up room category or resort when adding a FD discount to an existing reservation or booking a FD package.

I've been off the boards for a while and am wondering.... can you book the Terrace Dessert party online or do you need to call? is this 180 out too?

Airtran's flights for November & December are out by HOLY COW they are expensive ($425 each way. Um, no. I have to wonder if that's a typo or a glitch ). AND, worse yet, they no longer offer a NONstop flight from Richmond, VA to Orlando. Guess we'll be flying Jetblue instead!

SW releases their flight schedule tomorrow so the prices will fall. Hopefully lol We're planning on flying SW on points. If what's on the AT schedule is all the flights, I'm slightly disappointed

Thank you! We'll book and then hope for a DV heads up on the discount! If POFQ doesn't work out we will book POR.

December flights

Just a reminder: Southwest tickets are now on sale for December 2013 and January 2014. We managed to purchase one of the cheaper tickets for our vacation. However, this was around 7:30am and already a few of the cheaper flights were sold out.


Woohoo! I'm super excited right now. Purchasing the airline ticket makes the wait seem not as long; it gives me something to do.

It's showing all flights for Southwest as SOLD OUT. I called Southwest and the lady told me flights weren't uploaded yet. Hmmmmm...

well, thats bizarre. I got what I wanted so I was happy. Think that will change? I got a 7:05 going and a 3pm coming back home.
None of the sold out flights would have worked for me
