I’m booking for December 2020 and I’m hoping for free dining. Will AOA, FW, CBR or POR be more likely to offer free dining? Or does it not quite work that way?
Are any of the hotels I listed usually under reserved? Thanks!The whole point of free dining is to increase bookings in under-reserved hotels. So yes, the hotels in lower demand during off periods are the ones more likely to offer free dining discounts, whereas the higher demand hotels have much more limited or no free dining offers available.
I’m Canadian and sometimes the room pool for FD is slightly adjusted for out-of-country guests. But we’ve had free dining three times now - including this upcoming December period. And it has been offered at AOA (excluding the LM rooms, the family suites only), FW cabins (not campsites) and CBR. We have not seen it offered at POR the past two times we’ve got it and it is often excluded due to popularity. I know for Canadians there are some times that POFQ is offered, but again I haven’t seen the past two times we’ve got FD.I’m booking for December 2020 and I’m hoping for free dining.

CBR has historically been a good candidate for free dining, but with all the changes over in that area, including the Skyliner, I have no idea what hotel occupancy looks like. I second the suggestion of using a quality travel agent - they will have access to the data sooner and more completely than the general public, and they will do the legwork for you if you list your preferences.Are any of the hotels I listed usually under reserved?
