-   -   Cheaper rate thru orbitz but have double res now (http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3073701)

I booked thru Disney yesterday but found a cheaper room rate on orbitz this afternoon. I went ahead and booked it so I wouldn't miss out, but when I called to cancel the existing reservation thru disney, their systems were down and I was told to try again in the morning. Is there any chance I could have trouble with my reservations being cancelled since there are duplicates?? Thanks! :)

Hi...I also have 2 reservations in the system. I saved a whopping $500 booking through that Orbitz sale...I still have both ressies to ensure the best deal since there is no cancellation fee. Have a great trip. Every dollar saved is a dollar for your trip enjoyment!

Wow! I didn't save nearly that much but every dollar counts for sure! And glad there's no worries of our hotel being cancelled! Thanks!

Wow, thanks guys! I just saved $442!! Can you do online check in? Get magical express.? Etc... At orbitz help would be appreciated. Thanks!

What sale are you guys looking at?popcorn::

Took me a while to find it/new to orbitz. Promo code SPRING20. I got 20% off the 30% off spring sale from Disney. I booked poly club and saved 20% extra :) I am going 4/5-4/8. Disney had 807.50 a night but I got 805 plus 20%.
You have to put name in first then next page on top is spot to add promo code. Be sure to use caps! Good luck!

I would save 33.77 if I made the switch... is it worth it? I have notations on my ressie for a certain building and I feel if I go through Orbitz I might not get my request... thoughts?

Good Morning.
Some background...Cabins booked for 12 days in April...originally it was 3654 through Disney.....we received a code back in early February for a special Orbitz deal that has since ended. The room was $2013...I almost fell over. Since Disney has offered a Passholders discount that still cost 2574 so we kept our Orbitz ressie...it is worth the savings to us.
For a nominal amount, which is subjective, I would book through Disney. I had to pay upfront with Orbitz...Disney..payments which is wonderful.
For magical express....This is my first Orbitz trip....so any info on that from someone who has used Orbitz will be helpful.

I might be redoing mine since I used SPRING15! I did google a bit before booking and it seems that you still get to use magical express since you are a resort guest. The only thing you'd miss is the communication from disney...confirmation letters and things like that. I also had read that you'd lose room requests initially but will receive a disney confirmation number a few days after booking from Orbitz and you can call and give that number to add requests. Hope that helps! I haven't done it myself yet but am hoping this all works!

I went to Www.disneysmagicalexpress.com/us but I do not yet have a disney confirmation number. I will wait a few days and see if orbitz sends one. At least I know we still get ME!
Thanks for reply.

I was able to cancel and rebook using SPRING20...it's not a lot but I saved another $25! :-)

disneymagicgirl 03-03-2013 07:52 AM

It doesn't save me money either. :confused3

Does anyone know if we are able to have a dining plan with this offer? There was no option (that I saw) to add it to the reservation...

Mynamewastaken 03-03-2013 08:56 AM

For 33.77 I am going to keep my ressie with Disney. Call me nuts I know. It would have saved me a lot more on my split stay at the BWI had they had my room (standard) avail but they did not only waterview which is way more than standard. I would rebook but for 33.77 seems like such a hassel and waiting for conformations , changing magical express etc. I did rebook my sister though from pop to CBR and it was only 147.00 more for the week to upgrade to moderate so that was awesome

only 7 dollars difference here......not even sure that was worth my time:rotfl2:
