Disappointed no LM rooms left....now where?

So I have convinced DH to add a night on at the beginning of our stay as we come over from Clearwater. I wanted to book a LM room so we could explore that resort and do DTD and then move to the poly the next day. However, no rooms are left for the date we need.....do rooms ever show up with a month to go? Only could convince him if the resort was cheap and my middle dd loves Ariel so it would have been perfect

Now maybe some-one will pick me first for dodgeball

Definitely . . . keep checking. For early December of 2012, I would see the inventory change back and forth within minutes every day I checked [even within a week of the stay]. As it was, I decided to add a night on my DVC reservation and didn't take advantage of it, but don't give up hope and good luck.

What dates were you needing?
What site did you check, did you check only the Disney site?
Sometimes other sites have some available, do not ask me how but I have checked them & they will have some even at a cheaper price.

You'd probably be able to get a royal room w/the spring discount for the same price that AOA would have cost since it has no discount.

If you haven't already, try an arrival of 3/2 for 2 nights or 3/1 for 3 nights to see if that shows availability. If it does, you can book those nights and then call back and drop the night(s) not needed. I'm not sure why that happens, but sometimes adding a day or two onto what you need comes up available when nothing is showing available for your exact dates. Good luck.

No more cramped than a LM room.

Just keep calling. Rooms open up all the time, especially since you just need one day. And the website isn't always accurate either, so it is best to call them. Good Luck.

Not sure of your dates, but what about a royal room at POR. If your plan is DTD than this is perfect because you can take the boat!

I never would have thought about that. What a great suggestion. Thanks!
We will have our own car so getting to the poly the next day will be easy right?
