    I saw that there are some new free dining plan deals, but there were several hotel exclusions, including POFQ -- my hotel :( Why do they exclude some hotels? Any chance POFQ will be taken off the excluded list? Please help -- thank you!

    Hi Mary!

    Port Orleans French Quarter is a beautiful resort, I love strolling along the pathways munching on a delicious beignets (I highly recommend trying).  The resort has a wonderful quaint feeling as it should since it one of the smallest resorts at Walt Disney World. Special offers and discounts are typically released in order to help fill rooms at Walt Disney World resorts.  With Port Orleans French Quarter only having 1008 rooms, which is half the size of Port Orleans Riverside, filling rooms is usually an non issue for this resort so it is usually excluded from most special offers. Certain resorts will also be excluded from discounts based on their popularity and this can change from season to season.  

    The excluded resorts will typically remain an exclusion for the duration of the discount or special offer. With the popularity of  Disney's Free Dining Promotion, I highly doubt that it will be taken off that list.  If you are interested in taking advantage of Disney's Free Dining Promotion or a Room Only Discount, you may want to consider changing resorts.  Coronado Springs and Caribbean Beach Resort are both very lovely resorts within the same price range as Port Orleans French Quarter and are eligible for free dining. Unfortunately, I have been in this exact same boat before and had to change resorts to take advantage of any discounts. In order to change your resort and to check availability, call (407) W-Disney and have your resort reservation number handy.  

    I hope that everything works out and your able to take advantage of this delicious deal.  If you need any help or advice, please feel free to drop me a line anytime!

    Best Wishes!
