So I have a question, I just saw where someone upgraded their older child to an adult meal plan with no extra cost, is it because of the adult same as a child?

Thanks for the post. Called again and the waiting time is not bad, about 10min. This time I'm able to get the S/P/D applied and the saving is about $650. I'm staying in POR for 7nights from Mar.3, but have to switch to garden view. I found if I can check in on Mar. 2, the standard view is available.

We had to switch from the standard royal to garden view as well. It was going to cost us $1400 more to do the dining plan before s/p/d. We're getting the meals and an upgraded room for only $148 more than our original reservation for 2 rooms, 1 child, 5 adults and 4 days of has passes. In fact somehow when my TA called Disney she got the package for $3548 and not the $3648 quoted on the website!

I was old by a CM that it would be $70 more to change my 5 year old to an adult plan.

Disney only allows a certain amount of rooms at each resort to have certain discounts. Once the rooms are full for the discount they're full, even if you already have a reservation there.

Does anyone see these numbers changing, or should we still get the same prices if she doesn't get to it till tomorrow? Should I try calling Disney myself to change it, or does the TA have to?
Help!
You would not be able to apply a discount to a TA booed reservation through Disney, and even the TA has to call a special line. The main line won't be able to pull up or touch the TA reservation.

As much as I wanted Free Dining, I still managed to get something I believe is better...it's like I got free dining and some money back with the RO discount("Z3K"). Went from a package at CSR and upgraded to AKL....and still managed to spend $110 LESS than the rack rate at CSR.

Here's what I posted in another thread:

Janaury 24, 2013 - January 31, 2013 (7Nights/8Days)
Animal Kingdom Lodge - Pool View
8 Day Park Hopper Tickets, 2 Adults
Dining Plan
Original Rack Rate: $3867.78
Our Cost: $3,052.00
Total Savings: $815.78!!

Definitely a big change from original plan we had for Coronado Springs - Water View-King we had...the original cost for all of the above with the CSR room would have been $3161.26.
So we were able to upgrade and get all of the above for $109.26 LESS THAN CORONADO SPRINGS!!!

Yup, I got the free dining pin too, after I had already got in touch with my TA... but according to the Disney website, I'd only be saving $20 compared to S/P/D. Either way we'd have to switch to Pop. Plus we have two reservations and I don't know if the pin could apply to both.

OK, so I've been watching this thread for months (!!) and see today's new offers. This is my first time planning a trip to WDW so I am a newbie. I booked through Small World Vacations and have blindly trusted that my TA will look for these discounts and apply them (if worthwhile) so I don't have to worry about it. Should I be on the phone trying to get the discount myself? I've emailed her twice this week without a response. Once on Monday asking how she'd handle it IF a discount comes out, and now again today asking her to please look into it. Not sure what else to do I'm home with my 3 kids while my husband is traveling, and the trip is a surprise. Getting on the phone really isn't possible without blowing the trip

Thanks!!

I tried and she told me that I could not upgrade her to an adult!! This is my first trip to Disney as an adult and although I have had a pleasant experience booking it I am amazed at how the responses really seem to differ from CM to CM. When I originally changed my package this morning I asked the CM three times if it included dining, she told me it did and was even the step above QS. When I get my email there was not any dining so I had to call back and get it added.

Thank you for the reply. I have been on hold for about 1 hour and 40 minutes now. Earlier today I was on hold for 1 hour 20 minutes and then for another hour. Because of my schedule I am unable to stay on hold for 3 hours, not that I am unwilling . Gosh I hope I am not wasting my time!
