Mine took 1.5 hours, but the reservation page online took just a few minutes. I got lucky and was done by 7:10am.

Hi ladies! Well, when I woke up at 5AM I decided to see if I could book FD online and I could! But there were NO rooms available at POR for Nov 21 - 30. So, I went with my other option...6 nights WL w/FD and then 3 nights at the Swan on points. It costs basically the same amount as staying 9 nights at a mod with FD. I am now dreaming of the boat ride over from WL to MK

So glad you both were able to get FD, even though it is not at POFQ or POR. You will have an amazing time! I do want to find time to visit POFQ though, don't you? I want a beignet, darn it!

I lucked out. Finally got through and only waited like 30 seconds after all that automated info stuff. And then, I lucked out even more by the POR bunker room being available and was able to book my family of 5 and ended up spending $400 less than what I originally had budgeted for. Great morning for me.
Awesome! Congrats.

After spending an hour and 45 minutes on hold, I got a really great CM. He tried for about 30 minutes to try to get into the system to change my ressie, but it wasn't letting him in. He told me to call back this afternoon, but I was about ready to book online anyway while I was holding just in case, so that's what I did.

This is a surprise trip so I had to tell my 4 yo that I was making an appointment. At 8:30 she said "What kind of appointment are you making? It's taking so long and I can hear the Disney music, so they must like Disney too!" If she only knew....

We'll be at POR in a RR from 12/18-12/26. So excited for XMas at WDW and the FD has made it even sweeter.

Thanks to Joe and Dave for keeping us informed and to the rest of you who kept posting to this thread this morning. It gave me some reading material while I was on hold.

Good luck to everyone else who is stiill trying.
What a wonderful Christmas you will have! Congrats!

We've stayed in Martinique a couple of times. CBR is my sentimental favorite in all of WDW.
Just chillin' out between visits....

Book your own online and cancel hers! Surely with a fall trip date you can cancel without penalty????

Oh no! I hope someone picks up soon. Our corless battery died on me while I was on hold. Fortunately, I had called on my cell too. I used up 50% of my battery in the two hours and 15 minutes I was on the phone.

Online reservations aren't working at all for me. Just keeps coming up with non-discounted rates.

I'm on pins and needles waiting to hear from my TA! Hopefully she calls soon to tell me that she modified our reservations to include FD. If not, at least i will be at Disney for my October birthday!

Did the CM check all the dates 10/19-10/26? I believe the dates that are causing the problem are 10/24 (Thu) and 10/25 (Fri). When I first tried (online) to get either FD or RO for 10/19-10/25 for the Poly I was getting a message that there was no availability. When I played with the dates I was able to get FD or RO for 10/19-10/23 only; 10/24 & 10/25 were not available. I'm going to call Disney and modify my original undiscounted reservation to just 10/24 & 10/25 and link it to my FD reservation for 10/19-10/23.
