We changed from AoA to a CBR pirate room on Monday when the Disney Visa Free dining came out . I know these rooms are a pretty good walk from the main area, but if I were to request a specific building, which one might be the closest to the food court, pool, etc? TIA! --Katie

Jamaica 45 and Aruba 51 are the closest non-preferred rooms to OPR.

Is there a surcharge for those buildings?
And if I want to request one of those buildings, or any building, can I just call with my request?
Martinique 22 and 23 are not preferred so you could definitely put in a request for one of those buildings.

I'd suggest buildings 34 or 35. I walked over to Trinidad South and back to Old Port Royale and it took me about 7 minutes to walk from TS to OPR.

Question Food Court

I have a silly question,
in the food court do they have the 1 oz servings of cream cheese and butter or do you have to buy it?

Trying to see if I need to order cream cheese with my bagels from garden grocer or not

TIA!

I know that they have small packets of cream cheese in the grab no go station. I've gotten them when I purchased other food items and wasn't charged for it. I'm pretty sure they'd charge you if you weren't buying anything else.

You're welcome. I need to go back and look at my pictures to see if there was peanut butter on the condiment table. Let me see if I can find it.

Got Free Dining!

Our TA was on the phone for 3 hours this morning (since 5:30 am) trying to get us FD for our dates of 11/29-12/8. When I spoke with her this morning, she told me that only the POTC themed rooms were part of the FD offer (I'm guessing that's what the CM told her on the phone) so she moved my mom and brother to that with a water view. It was saving them $600. My family was already booked for a standard pirate themed room, so she moved/upgraded us to a water view and requested adjoining rooms. It increased our package cost by $400, but it was FD none-the-less.

She then calls me back after she tries online at the TA website and tells me that a non-pirate themed room for FD opened up and she grabed it for us, putting us back to our original room requests and right back to down to the cost we figured out with FD added . She had to call Disney back and cancel out the first change she did.

This is all well and good, but now I'm a little worried that b/c of all of this moving around, canceling, rebooking, etc., that we will be paying for the new cost in park tickets rather than what we paid for in May when we originally booked. She told me that we wouldn't.

On a good note, this TA went above and beyond what we expected to make sure we got FD. Their office opens up at 10 am and this one person got up earlier than usual and took care of this on her own time for us. That was something my family was not expecting.

If you modify an existing reservation you will pay the current ticket prices. So it didn't matter that your original reservation was canceled.

That was my understanding as well. There is less than a $100 difference from what I initially figured out with FD added. So I'm wondering if that's where the ticket increase is.

I found the pictures that I took but I can't quite make out if there's peanut butter in any of the bowls. It looks like honey, assorted jellies, tea bags, hot sauce, etc.

I was talking to my mom about what our TA did and we both agreed that we would like to thank them. She told me that my aunt and her sent their TA flowers as a thank you b/c that TA did something similar for them.

When a TA goes above and beyond like this, it really shows how much they care about their customers!
