    The October-December FD dates are not announced annually until usually July, sometimes August.

    Yes, that is still the policy. As long as you check in by the last day of a FD promo they will apply the discount to your entire stay, up to 14 nights.

    I am a DV member, but I'm not going for the FD. I feel guilty, but I think it makes more sense for us not to as we are staying AKL CL. I had a pin for 35% off the room & went for it. Is it the smart thing to not do free dinin!

    Yes, mods and deluxe receive the regular dining plan with one table service, one counter service, and one snack per person per day, plus the refillable mug.

    Thanks so much! So it was just a rumor that the QSDP was all that was free unless in a deluxe resort?

    That makes me happy! Now I have decisions to make.

    Yes it was an ugly rumor we tried to squash for quite a while to no avail.

    My amazing travel agent applied FD to our stay this morning-- Sept. 2-9 at POR! We're currently in a standard room and trying to decide if we want to upgrade to preferred or a Royal room with the extra funds! :scratchin
    Soooooo excited this discount finally came out! Our trip feels so much more real now!

    They will still credit you the difference, but it can take up to 2 billing cycles to receive your refund.
