Thanks for all the great info. Planning a trip for my son’s birthday week this year(which also happens to be the week my father passed away in 2010). Has been a difficult year, and I have enjoyed visiting your site daily to review plans and keep busy mentally. Many thanks for all your hard work!

Christy, have fun, and I’m sorry about your loss…

Planning a trip in Dec during your suggested week…is there any way to plan for free dining during that time?

4 Dave { 06.18.12 at 6:05 am }

Valerie, best way to do it is to set up a visit that can be converted to free dining if it comes out and your dates/hotel are eligible. I advise people to work with travel agents to do so. Plan B is to wait–last year free dining for then was announced in early August…
