Free dining- same weeks each fall?

Has the free dining been for the same weeks each year it's been offered?

No, it hasn't. Start times, end times and blackout dates have varied - start times and end times usually not by that much, but there are more blackout dates than there were a couple of years ago.

past dates

I was told by a Disney rep they wanted to phase out the free dinning, but with the economy it works as a big draw from families. They make up the extra in selling other things.

The dates are similar, but they release them based of the pre-book rooms and use it to fill vacant areas in booking.
Here is a list I started a while ago:
