[QUOTE=Turnwrench;1054698]If your [U]check-in[/U] date falls within the free dining eligibility period, you will get the free dining discount for the entire duration of your stay, even if your check out date extends into the blackout period.
If, however, your check-in date is prior to the eligibility date you would have to book two reservations - one for the first part of your trip that’s in the blackout period, and another for the second part of your trip which would start on the first day of the free dining eligibility.
Here’s an example. For December 2010 free dining is offered from the 10th - 21st, and the 3rd - 9th is blacked out. So if your reservation started on the 20th and went for 7 nights you’d get free dining for the entire duration of your stay. However, if you wanted to check in December 6th and stay for 7 nights, you’d have to book one non-free-dining discount reservation for December 6 - 9, and another free dining reservation from December 10 - 13.
Hope that makes sense.[/QUOTE]
It make perfect sense, thank you for the clarity!
