"If" free dining offered, would it include AOA?

We are hoping for FD. We would be 2 adults and 4 children and one of the suites at AOA would work out, but I am not sure if they are usually included when FD is offered. Anyone know? Thanks

The AOA suites have been included in all general public promos since they opened last year. However, the Little Mermaid standard rooms have been blacked out of almost all general public discounts.

Rumour has it... that free dining if released will be similar to the BB Offers...
Values - Not inculded
Mod's - Quick service
Dlx - DDP

Actually values were included but just not mentioned. There are many folks in here who called and were able to get values.

So yes they were included.

Value resorts were included in the bounceback offer, however, the LM rooms were excluded. Typically, the GP offer starts later than the bounceback offer by about a week or so. There is no way to know what will happen this year because free dining has not yet been offered to the general public for any date in 2013. It will likely be mid-May before we hear anything, could be even later than that.

We stayed in the Little Mermaid rooms last September and got Free Dining. They were open to the public for a time period and when the next round of free dining came along they were not.

FD was offered when the resort first opened because they opened earlier than expected. The LM rooms were supposed to open in Dec, but it was moved to Sept 15. They needed to fill the rooms quickly, and nothing fills a resort faster than FD.

I haven't seen ANY info to back that "rumor" up. The UK often has FD promos that do not include value resorts, but no US FD promo has ever excluded value resorts whether it be a general public or Bounceback FD promo. And UK discount promos never have any baring on what US discount offers will be. Also, I know for a fact the Bounceback we received in our Resort room in December for late August through September included quick service DDP at the value resorts for free dining, just as it has in the past.

Hasn't park attendance been at an all-time high so far this year? Don't know about resort occupancy, but could the delay in posting a discount be a struggle between the pro-weaning and anti-weaning discount factions?

The BB offer we rcv'd on our last visit says such. If I knew how to attach a picture to this post I'd post it for you..

Value resorts were not specifically listed on the bounceback, but if you called and asked for them, they were included. Lots of people have booked the FD bounceback for this Aug/Sept at value resorts, just not for the LM rooms at AoA because they were excluded.

I am so confused! I have a BB offer from last year. I am booked at a Mod. POFQ and I have DDP not QS. Where was the BB offer given that had Mod's at QS? I was at CBR last year, booked before we left and even switched resorts and got DDP.
