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!!
Current policy is you can pick up your package ticket up to 3 days early at Guest Services at Downtown Disney or one of the 4 parks.

You can re check in at 6 am. Just make sure the room only reservation and the package reservation are linked in the system.

Called back and got a great agent named Owen. He checked the same offers the previous agent was looking at and confirmed it being at least $400 cheaper to do free dining, so I got it switched! Now upgraded to a Garden View room @ POFQ arriving Sept 25!


Good luck, everyone!

I called 407 W DISNEY and said 'agent' until I heard hold music.

So if my package starts September 2nd is 3 days earlier calculated including September 2nd or without ? Can I pick up on August 30th ?

I have both reservations listed below each other in "my Disney Experience" - does that mean they are linked ??

Thanks!!

I don't understand I called back and spoke to a different CM and she said because our stay goes past the FD dining offer we don't qualify. What happened to check in before the 25th and your whole stay is included? I'm so so bummed.

After 50 minutes on hold, I was finally able to speak to an agent. We are staying at a value and FD in only from 9/14 to 9/25 for the values, so I was only able to get a 20% room discount.. oh well, it's better than nothing

I'm just happy we are going to Disney

GL to everyone calling. Be patient it takes a long time to get through.

Huh? Lots of people have booked values for early Sept with free dining. The deal is up on the Disney site. Try plugging in your info through the free dining offer and see if what you want is available online.
