Wwyd?

So my husband doesn't know if he can get the week off that I want to book. He wont know until Tuesday when his boss gets back from his vacation. Do I book it now and cancel it if he finds out he cant go or wait until Tuesday but run the risk of losing the last remaining rooms?

If you think you will lose the room you want, book now. You can always cancel on Tuesday.

You are not within the penalty period, are you? If not you should have a week to hold and not have to pay a deposit. If you are I would wait.

I do eveything online and you should be able to choose a complimentary hold. I would think you could ask for that if you called also. Since you are going in June you should be good. If you don't make the deposit by the deadline, your reservation would automatically cancel so remember to do that

I've gotten refunds within 2-3 days, but it depends on how fast your bank/cc company processes it as Disney puts the refund through right away.

You have 7 days to make the minimum deposit ($200 for a package; 1 night room rate + tax for room only). As the pp mentioned, if the deposit isn't made by the 7th day, the reservation will automatically cancel.

Unless it's changed with the new website, you have to call if you want a 7 day hold as booking online will require the deposit at that time.
