    Why would POFQ not be included?

    So in the two weeks since the original leak, there has been some additional exclusions. Chip (in one of his many edits this morning) posted some of it; however, this is not where I got this information.

    New Exclusions for free dining:

    Art of Animation
    All Star Movies
    Port Orleans French Quarter

    Disappointing but not totally unexpected given that the PIN codes have been booking free dining this entire time....and those are the most popular places.

    Anyone know what the chances of CBR standard room being unavailable are? My kids are so excited about staying there!

    We are booked at AoA and wanting to switch to POP on Thursday. Our dates are Nov 16-22...what are our chances of getting a room? Our 2nd and 3rd choices are POR and CS but we are realllllly hoping for POP!

    Ok so I had a few back ups but that isn't going to be the case with the new exclusions.....What are some rooms other that AoA that can fit 5 people and will be included in the meal plan?

    Should we expect RO to have the same exclusions, do you think? Thanks.

    Not necessarily, but it won't matter if the resort is booked up.

    It never hurts to ask for first choice...ever.

    Thanks for the updated info black. With POFQ out, it seems that any FD availability at POR might go pretty quickly on Thursday morning. I'll be glad when this is over, my nerves can't take much more :sad2:
