How many times have you changed your plans?

I've changed mine 3 times already! 1st I booked port Orleans then I downgraded to the little mermaid rooms at Aoa because I could not see myself paying 1000 more for POR! Then free dining came out so I got pop with a great deal but because I upgraded my dining it raised the cost to be about the same as CBR... I'm going to call tomorrow to see if I can change again lol So what's the most you've changed? I feel like they're going to mark me as the really annoying customer lol..

You are definitely not alone. There's an entire thread dedicated to those who can't help but change their resorts multiple times.


Some lovely people hang out in that thread.

I've been booked for about 7 months have had reservations at SSR, OKW, CSR and now CBR!

Part of me still waivers wondering if the washer and dryer and full kitchen is worth $1000 to me !

I booked CBR with FD & then got a pin for FD good at POFQ. Managed to get my dates at POFQ river view after overbooking then calling to delete a check in day. Then a few days ago a cheaper garden view came available so I called and swapped to that. I am hoping that a standard room eventually comes available!

Originally booked POR, along the way we contemplated on switching to POFQ, BCR, BWI, Swan/Dolphin, CSR, finally when the summer promo came out along with deal on Orbitz went with WL.

Proud resort changer!!! Rule of thumb: if you can count how many changes you've made, you're still good.

I've been planning our September trip for a year now and stopped counting at 15 changes (resorts, room types, resorts, dates... I have Disney reservations on my speed dial!) Once ADRs came up, I've changed so many times -- yet my TA has managed to stay relatively sane throughout (though I have gotten some "I tried to tell you..." when I came full circle). Can't wait or FP+ to open so I can change those over and over again, too!

In a way, I'm blessed for our Dec trip: we have 4 rooms at the same resort under FD over Christmas. I don't think there is anyway for me to change that without screwing something up. NOW, when those ADRs pop, I guarantee TA will be done with me.
'88-1st WDW trip * '92, '95, '98-DW day trips * '03-DW Spring Break * '05-'06-AP WDW (honeymoon & more!) * '08-1st DL trip * '10-DL (Paradise Pier, Club 33) '11-Spontaneous DW (SoG) * Jun 2012 - Week in WDW (POR/YC!!!) * Sep 2014-MNSSHP/LO's First Trip! (WL) * Christmas '14-In-law-mageddon

Originally booked at AoA, then made it a split stay between POR/AoA, then moved over to POR altogether, and was getting ready to break down and book WL when I noticed CSR had FD for the dates a week after when we were originally going so now we're booked there! Each time I was reluctant to change and then got really excited about the new resort. Can't wait!

Never. We wait until we know exactly where we want to stay and what we want to do and for the deal we expect to come out and then we book our vacation. Simple and hassle free.
