I am confused on if there is a difference. Since we had a PIN for free dining I didn't really research the public offer. Is there a difference or are they the same? Is there a window where free dining to the public was not offered? The reason I ask is that we are staying Sept. 11-17 and the "extended hours" for the restaurants did cover our stay. They are extended up until a week or so before we arrive and not again until after we leave. Is there no public free dining during that window? I am just wondering since I have found it slightly easier to make ADR's than I had been expecting and was wondering about crowd levels.
