Whew! Finally got caught up! I am SO excited for all of you guys who got it!! Glad there are some RD for Aug folks too! I really can't wait now until Thursday! I will have to stay on top of this a little better Thurs so it won't take me over half the day to catch back up Crossing my fingers for Pop, but we would be just fine with ASMo again this year. Just SO excited and happy for everyone!

Or should I just move to two back to back rooms at different value? Again, I hope it doesn't come to this, but I like having back up plans!!
AsMu are similar to the AoA, and, I think, cheaper.
Two connecting rooms at a value are even cheaper.
POR Alligator Bayou has rooms that sleep 5, one room, one bathroom, not separate space.
Music suite or two rooms is the way to go.

2 reasons for me.

I do it to have someone to blame if anything goes wrong.

It doesn't cost me a penny more to do it with a TA and they get a commission out of it! Why not spread the wealth?

Thanks for the info. I'm thinking two rooms will be my backup. What is everyone's favorite value resort? I'm liking the looks of All star movies!

So I am new to this site and i'm so happy to be getting all this great information. I'm planning a Disney honeymoon for September and I'm wondering if any one has heard if rooms at AKL are available for the FD discount.

I dont know about your budget, but if you can swing it you may have more room in 2 connecting rooms at a deluxe. Now granted, we have not stayed at a mod so I cannot speak from exp to the accommodations. But deluxe rooms will have 2 queens and a daybed. This may make sleeping arrangements easier.

Not a fan of the new Disney site. I can't see any of my package details. (We're doing waterpark+ and hoppers). I want to see dining listed (added it this am)! End rant

Yes, I believe they are, but I do not know what room categories are included. If you have a Disney Visa card, you can call the Disney reservations number tomorrow or Wednesday beginning at 8:00 am eastern time (not sure how late they stay open). If not, you can call during the general public offering which begins Thursday, May 9th. Either way, the CM will be able to tell you if the resort & room type you want has the FD offer available. Good luck & congratulations on your upcoming honeymoon.

You and I are in the same boat (9/28-10/5). Maybe we should fret about this together lol

In April I used a TA and my package ended up being like $200 cheaper than any numbers I ran myself. No clue how that happened but I didn't complain...

I am Doing it myself this time, just because I know the only discount will be FD...

Ok so we talked it over and it looks like ASMO just might be the best option for us. Now as far as rooms go we have picked out (according to the map) which room will more than likely work best for us. My question now is do I call tonight and switch my ressie to ASMO from LM to get the room I want and then call back on Thursday and add the dining or do I wait?

Thanks again for all your guidance.
