You can't do that easily with the cfinput datefield. You should be able to do that with cfcalendar. I would use that instead.

You can block only one range of date in ColdFusion, if you want multiple date ranges then you may need to try some other javascript calendar. A good scrip yo can find in the below link.

No out of the box solution from adobe then. There are a lot of free calendars out there.

Another option would be to use onChange to check the date and determine if it is valid via actionscript, but that is not as user friendly as having it already greyed out. You can use JS validation with cfinput datefield as well.

Here is one that supports what you want, but is not free ($28).
