Availability online vs calling?

Last night my wife and I were looking on disneyworld.com and they showed availability for Pop Century week before Christmas with Free Dining. I am wishing we booked it. We wanted to see if our oldest son would like to go with us and celebrate his 21st birthday at the world. Talked to him today and he would like to go. Check the site, Pop is no longer available. ugh. Only ASMusic which we do not want to stay.

Is there any difference in availability if we call or use a TA? If not, I guess I will just keep checking to see if Pop opens up.

Ugh! How fustrating. I would have booked. Only a deposit which would be refunded. I'd book what you can, free dining goes fast, then keep checking for Pop. If you use a WDW specialized TA, she will do this for you. But they don't have any more access to room availability then you do.
People do cancel, so you may find openings, esp around the 45 day mark.

If I book ASMusic with free dining would I need to switch to pop before the free dining promotion ends on August 8th to keep the free dining option?
