The lady called the hotel and faxed over the info with the ressie for two adults and put my two kids on that as well. Got a new conformation code and plugged it into the Disney site. It is only showing the ressie with 2 adults on it. I am hoping it will show 4 soon. I am just so scared the magical express will think they are picking up two but she assured me they know now there are 4 of us.

Two days later and many hours on the phone I saved 216.00 Yeah it was worth it.

Those making ressies that have kids. Make them for adults only and then call and add the kids on. They will fax the resort for you with that info YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY
glad it worked out.

Something about a third-party vendor having a better rate than a Passholder can obtain just doesn't seem "right" to me.
I'll be activating my PAP this summer. AP rates not out for my dates but i'm doubting they'll beat the orbitz rate I have.

However, it's standard for large travel agencies to buy blocks of rooms at discount and sale them...obviously, orbitz is still making a profit.

By using this obitz deal, I can change to the resort I really want (which was too expensive), with a a courtyard view, and still save $54!

Is anyone buying park tickets on Orbitz too?

The buy 3 get 2 free deal is tempting me but I'm trying to figure out if there is some kind of hoop I have to jump through for it. It mentions something about showing a voucher to gain admission... anyone know what that's all about??

I did the math and for us it was the same to buy tickets with the special discount from Undercover Tourist. With Orbitz you'll get a voucher that you will have to redeem at the gates. Undercover Tourist will mail you the actual tickets to your home so you dont have to worry about it when you get to the park.

I just cancelled my reservations through Disney and booked Boardwalk Inn through Orbitz... saving me $232.82 with the SPRING20 promo code!

I'm considering buying my park tickets through Orbitz too. We were going to do a 4 day ticket, but this buy 3 get 2 free sounds like a pretty good deal... even if you have to present a voucher at the ticket office.

We're travelling in July. Does anyone know if this 20% discount is common for Orbitz? My dates are outside the spring20 promotion. Hoping to get a summer deal!

Thanks so much for sharing this info, I'm wondering if anyone has been able to add on the dining plan afterwards through Disney? Can it be done? Thanks for your help!

No, you can't add the dining plan because the reservation is not a package.

Ok, so it looks like a great deal for us too. So I should book with 2 adults thru orbitz and then call Orbitz to add the kids manually. They will notify Disney? Since I will have a separate arrival day ressie do I even need to jump they theses hoops? ME will be linked to my first night ressie, right?

Apparently unless you are in a certain type of room (villas?) you need to jump through those hoops or the kids will be charged as adults. You'd have to leave the kids off the reservation entirely to avoid that one apparently.

With this type of reservation, if you also buy tickets from Orbitz, it's a separate purchase, not a MYW package. And you need a package to add DDP.
