Anyone doing a split stay?? Wanting to book POFQ for three nights with dining plan- The day we are doing MNSSHP is going to be a leisurely day and I am thinking about doing AK Lodge with the room discount the last night b/c I wont be able to afford it without discount and what better time to check it out... )) Will I regret doing this?

An hour and a half on hold vs. $1,200 worth of free dining? Definitely worth it!!

Booked for Wilderness Lodge from 9/4 - 9/12 and can't wait!

thankyou Disboards.


upgrade from pop 9 nights to PO French 1/4 gardenview for $490

so my free dining costs $49 a day for the three of us and an upgraded hotel. THIS ROCKS.

on phone at 7am and on phone 35mins including transfer to dining section to vary my CRT reservation

good luck everyone

Hard to say definitively, but Disney is not known to be slow. If you want to save time, think about driving to Epcot and leaving from there to Universal. Disney transportation could be the biggest time eater.

Unfortunately an hour or two wait will happen for a lot of people today. Glad you got it!

If any you made a pre-paid, call Dining reservations and have them add your dining plan and then they won't charge you.

If none of them are, then you just show up at your ADR and they'll ask you at the table if you are on the dining plan, and then when you pay you give them your room card.

So just called back to cancel my AOA LK without free dining. Verified my new AOA Cars with Free Dining that I booked online and to double check on the LK Free Dining rooms. Didn't have any for Sept 15-20. A little bummed but Cars will be fine. Happy I got FREE DINING.

YIKES!!

I was playing with the website, and created a booking for my exact hotel (POR) for the dates I am going to be there, and it was still available (I have heard people talk about POR being sold out) so I feel a little better!

That's the week we're there too. It's going to be awesome, so looking forward to it.

Wouldn't think you would regret it--it's great way to check out other resorts
We are splitting but on the front end...decided to come in a day early and instead of adding to our reservation just took the room only discount for that night at an AS.
