We finally got it!
Originally had one stay from August 29th until September 9th with 9 day tickets and dining plan at POR. We were hoping for end of August free dining plan...
Since this did not happen we just splitted our stay in a room only from August 29th until September 2nd and a second FD stay from September 2nd until 8th with 9 day tickets.

We wanted to have our first park day on August 30th - which is 3 day prior to our package reservation - can you specialists just confirm that I will be able to pick up our park tickets on the morning of August 30th at DHS guest service ?

And another question: on the morning of September 2nd we have breakfast ADR at 1900 park fare . Will we be able to get our new KTTW cards for the second stay already in the early morning at the check in desk ? Is there anything we can do (besides mentioning the second reservation during our first check in) to give us higher chances to keep our room for the entire stay ?

Thanks for any comment! We really appreciate it!!

Click on the 'special offers' link towards the bottom of the page on the main website, it is there and if the phones are as crazy as it sounds, unless you need to make changes to an existing reservation, it's probably your best bet.

I finally got through but it was to Disney Dining. She took my information and now I am on hold again waiting for the correct department to assist me.

Reservation is going up $244.66 because we are applying free dining instead of room discount. Anyone else experience this? We are not changing room type?

I just had an agent who tried to tell me FD would be $120 more than my current 20% room discount. I argued with her for about 5 minutes because we had done the math about a million times and there was no way it was cheaper. She told me she would send me to a supervisor and then it went to a disconnect signal. I am really peeved and am back on hold now.


Maybe they are having a problem with their res system. She tried to tell me the number I was looking at was skewed because it was applying the current room offer, but POFQ doesn't look like its even on the current room offer..

What a mess! It's too early to argue to I just let them apply the free dining. I'll call back later and figure out what's really going on. Got a snippy agent for the first time ever calling Disney World.

Also really peeved because when I split my reservation in two to take advantage of free dining they assured me that the balance would transfer so that I wouldn't have to mess with it being credited back to my card and recharged. That didn't happen, I hadn't put down a deposit and almost lost my reservation all together! I have been so happy with their customer service up to this point but very frustrated right now.
