Call CRO and make the reservation or you can do it online at:


I believe that CRO's computers are still down so you might want to check online. The new system is easy to use.

Call CRO (central reservations). Don't be shy about asking for any specials or discounts for your date, "room only". You might also want to try one of the TA's who specialize in Disney vacations, like Dreams Unlimited. They're easy to work with and will get you the best deal out there. They'll also adjust your total should a deal come along after you've booked. Since it is your 1st time, you might be better off using a TA. They can also get any of the Priority Seatings you need. BTW: Pop Century is a good choice - can't beat the cost for a Disney property! Have fun!

When you make your reservation, be assertive, but nice. Ask for any codes, discounts, specials and especially make sure to get their name, the time and date and your confirmation number. They are human and they DO screw up occasionally, so write it all down and put it somewhere safe. When you get your paperwork in the mail for it, keep that safe as well!

Hope this 800 number helps...800-828-0228. I called and booked a room only reservation at Pop Century for Feb 10-16, 2005 and they were very helpful.

I would call the 800 number. You might want to check www.mousesavers.com for Canadian Resident specials. The only other options are for AAA members, Fla Res, Military or Annual Passholders.
