You know, I just have to laugh at everyone always looking for a toll-free number, and once they get one being surprised or bummed when Disney shuts it down.

Quite honestly, I think its pretty smart of Disney NOT to have a toll-free number available to the general public. Disney doesn't want to foot the bill for people who constantly call to change this, tweak that, look for a code, change their resort, etc.

There's a reason WDW doesn't publish these numbers to the general public...they're not intended for use by the general public.

It amazes me how many people on these boards will draw and quarter anyone they think is breaking a Disney "rule" but barely a peep is made over people sharing the toll free numbers, that they're not supposed to even know about.

I wonder why it's not ok to post codes that are not public codes on the boards but it's o.k. to post phone numbers that are not public?

Well,as someone who has no unlimited long distance plan on their land line and a strictly "Mom I'm pulling out of the MK parking lot and I'll be home in less than 2 hours" 5 dollar a month,pay as you go cell phone,I need those toll-free numbers. Disney is a MULTI-billion dollar company;they can afford toll-free numbers for the general public.

Evidently, they can afford not to have toll-free numbers for the general public.

I completely disagree. It is not a requirement, and they do plenty of business without them. Most people have free long distance, and it is probably a large cost to run those numbers.

If not, my advice would be to find a local earmarked Disney specialist. They are everywhere, and are often better than the direct line.

That's how they got to be a multi-billion dollar company, by not blowing thousands upon thousands of dollars on toll-free lines when their resorts and restaurants are fully booked without them. :)

Sure, it'd be lovely if they had a toll-free line. But from a purely business perspective, it'd be foolish of them to spend the money on toll-free lines when they wouldn't bring in any more business.

I wish we could have the "toll free number" thread as a sticky so we don't need to rehash it every 3 days or so. :rotfl:

No offense to anyone.. but most people who can afford to go to Disney can afford the long distance call. Unless you are calling on the first day the public promo comes out..the call will cost you, what, $3? Tops? I don't think Disney is that concerned about it! But, like the others have said..they don't want to pay for us to tweak our ressies, call just "to see how much it would cost" etc!

Really? If YOU had voip you could make the toll free call as it'd be in the plan. Disney having it would do nothing at all for making it a toll free call for the person calling them. Disney isn't charging you to call, your phone company is.

If you're calling from really far away (im in canada, usually i spend about 4 bucks total making all arrangements with them from adrs to booking through them by calling long distance) you could get a calling card. I know it'd be pricey from the UK or wherever, but a calling card would make it no more expensive than what most people pay on their cell phones from anywhere in north america, which is relatively little.

There is also now a thing on their website where you can talk to a live person via IMs so you don't really need to phone for much.

The problem with a sticky is most people don't read them before they post.

Though a Sticky would give you a thread to merge all subsequent questions posted into.

We'll have to agree to disagree. I think Disney should have a toll-free line,you all don't. Doesn't make either myself or you all wrong.

I thought it was funny (sort of) when I called the other day the 1407 W Disney number to pay some on our room, and make a few ADR's as well, and it said something along the line like Please stay on the line and take a short survey after your call,

I thought, you take away the toll free number, and now you want me to take a survey on my dime as well! NO! :laughing:

So no one who feels that way will get to "vote" for a toll-free number. :)

I always thought that the toll-free line made the long waits more bearable!:rolleyes1

It will be harder to be so patient now.:sad2:

Well, I'm sure others will be able to comment on the actual numbers, but I was under the impression that the percentage of disboard users as compared to the number of people who visit WDW is extremely low--like less than a tenth of a percent. Probably less than .01% or even a lot lower. Which is why posting a tip like where to stand for a parade doesn't instantly invalidate the usefulness of the tip. So I don't think sharing a toll-free number on the dis is going to have that great an impact. And I'm hoping that someone will eventually share any new number that comes along. And I, too, don't like paying to wait on hold, to answer questions about how many times I've visited, or to take post-call surveys.

And my apologies to those of you who frequent this particular board---if I could get the search feature to work nicely, I would not have created a new thread. If there was a sticky about toll-free numbers, I would certainly read it.

The problem is that the Internet is viral. If the telephone number is posted in one place, it is then carried from there to a dozen other places, and then starts traveling around the Internet via email, blogs, and such.

Regardless of the significance, no responsible forum wants to become known as a source of exploitation and progenitor of abuse. If Disney had wanted the telephone number distributed by these means, rest assure that they would have posted the number themselves.
