Although I will be more relaxed once we are booked. Hopefully on the 29TH! I will be using my Disney Visa for all three rooms, so we can all get it a few days ahead of the public. Am I right in thinking, I only need to put $200 on my Visa for the other 2 rooms? I already put down way more than that on my package all on my Visa card, so I don't think I will need to make another payment. I think I will just pay it off when it comes out though.
Yeah!!! We made it to the ANNOUCEMENT!!! It has been a long rode... I am only a little crazy now!!

I have the Poly booked from the 12th-17th, then BC 17th-22nd and then AKL 22nd-27th.
So, the RO would cover me from the 18th on wards...correct?
Are the AP dates normally the same as the GP RO dates?

If I'm correct, It would make more sense to extend the Poly to check out the 18th instead of the 17th, so that I could get the RO starting at the BC on the 18th. I don't really want to stay the 17th at the BC at full pop, and then possibly have to switch rooms from the 18th-22nd. Do you follow?

I have some thinking to do..I may even move AKL to the beginning and Poly at the end since the Poly is the most expensive resort without a discount. AKL is the cheapest one out of the 3...

Thank-you for you help, much appreciated!!!
I don't know the answer to your question but am in awe of your trip!!! Fun!

Disney Visa Question

This may have been asked earlier and I'm soooo excited about the GP offer, that I may have missed the answer.... here it goes!

I still have a balance to pay on our currently booked vacation. I have not used my Disney Visa on this but I do have it. If I call Disney the day that Disney Visa offer comes out .. how will this work? Can I only put $200 charge on the card and still be able to use the Disney discount before the GP offer?

So would we just use our AP's to enter parks and when we come home be sure to keep the other KTTW cards with the 2 day tickets on them? But we could still use those for dining? Thanks for all your help.

I don't really want to open a card but I will if it seems necessary to get FD at my choice of resort.
POR RR books way slower than their standard rooms. When I booked (super late) with the PIN for FD I had to switch from a standard room to a RR in order to get FD. On the other hand, if your week is super popular, there will be less availability all around. What week are you going?

Yes, bummer for us west coast folks, but SO excited to get FD for our dates, which were only scheduled as such because of the valuable info we got here previously... Glad, too, for the tension-relieving leak! Thanks so much, Joe! To all of you who are happily up at 7am on the 1st, comfortably drinking your coffee while on hold, happily listening to pirates sing "Yo ho, yo ho...", think of me - snoring into the phone at 4:00 in the middle of the night.

We are checking in at AoA 11/3 also. Did you get a pin for that discount? I'm just checking if I missed anything. Lol

Don't make any switches until the release date. You never know what may happen, what may book up, how much availability...etc. Plus, you'll have to call that morning anyway, so might as well just wait and do it all in one go.

Yes, you'll just be asked to put $200 on the card.

Here's my question...

My parents and my family are currently booked in 2 Little Mermaid rooms. We'd been planning on switching to POP if FD came out, but I just priced it out for an AoA suite and if we shared with my parents it would only cost us $95 more. If I upgrade to a suite for all of us and my dad cancels his reservation, does he get his $200 deposit back?

On that note, it would be 4 adults, 2 kids, and 1 baby. Since the baby is under 3, the 7 of us could all stay in one suite, correct?

TIA!

So now it looks like FD for my dates I want to upgrade from a mod to deluxe.

I am currently booked at POFQ 16-20 Nov with regular dining. I am paid in full. How do i change this to Wilderness Lodge standard room. Do I call and cancel what I have and wait for a refund or can I transfer the amount paid to a new reservation and pay the difference? How do I add FD to my existing reservation? Do I call on the 1st August and ask them to add it?

It is my first time staying onsite and it is all a bit confusing. Thanks!!
