HELP! Art Ltl. Mermaid not avail!!!!!

Art of Animation Little Mermaid room is not avail. for my dates in May this year 2013! There is avail. one day later and one day earlier for arrival but not on my date! Cast Member said to call back for cancellations. What is the REAL probablility of that happening? Should I just book the one day later, Tuesday, rather than the Monday that I wanted just to get me in at least for most of the days and figure the Monday out later? This way I'll at least have those as apposed to no days at Art? My dates aren't really flexible. If I couldnt get Monday at Art, then if worst came to worse, I could book Pop, Music, Sports, for that day and then transfer. What would you do?

I've heard people reserve more days than they want when this happens. Then they call back in a few days and delete the days that they won't be there from the reservation.

Thanks for the info HM. But I asked the CM at booking and they said that is costs 50-200 dollars to remove or cancel days from your trip or canceling stuff depending on how many days in advance you cancel. That isn't something I'd like to pay.

You can change a package at no penalty until 45 days before arrival. You can change a room-only reservation at no penalty up to five days before arrival with no penalty.

Book the Sunday arrival. Call back in a day or two and make the change you need.

What if you booked the Monday night that you were planning on arriving at POP, then walking over to AoA and check in there for the remainder of the stay?

Once you book the pop room, just keep calling Disney every day till you go to see if a LM room opened up for that one night.

We are going for a short trip April 10th-13th to look at wedding venues, and were going to stay at POP with the Spring discount, b/c rack rate wasnt available to AOA (LM), and I checked again today, and AOA was available, and i booked immediately!! I'm a little nervous with the distance to everything else, but we walked over to AOA in January when we stayed at POP, and fell in love with AOA, its beautiful! Don't give up, keep trying!

Oh thank you dansdad!!! That info helps me out a lot. Okay, now I'm going back to that it won't be that bad if I don't get The Monday AoA room I wanted. It would be easy to pick up my tix a day ahead of time.

Guess what everybody? I room opened up and I got our first day at AoA! Pheww!!! Does anyone know if I'll be able to get the same room for both reservations if I call and ask? It would stink to have to transfer rooms but I'll take it instead of transfering hotels. If we do have two dif rooms, I'm wondering how that will work. We wont have a car and we'll be heading to the park for rope drop and back to the hotel by 3ish for a break. In the morning before we get on the bus, would we be able to check out and leave the bags with the front desk until we get back and check in to our new room for the second part of our stay and get our bags then, or they might bring them up to the room?

Got it all taken care of. Disney said they linked my two reservations and they said there is a 95% chance we'll be able to stay in the same room.
