I doubt that I see any discounts for our visit. Disney is proud of their rooms. Two of us are going for three nights over MLK weekend at the Boardwalk in a standard waterview room with Park Hoppers. $2700.00 +. I also went ahead and booked my dining as I expect blackout dates anyway.

This is our first trip to WDW and I am still learning! I have a quick question I was hoping you experts could help me with. Our dates are 1/5 - 1/13. Now say FD is offered on 1/6. (I saw on this thread somewhere that someone predicted that date for FD to start). Could we do a room only reservation for the 5th and start our package on the 6th? I know all these dates floating around are just predictions and no one really knows for sure if/when FD will be offered. I just want to be prepared in case it is offered that week!! Thanks guys!

That's exactly what we did last January and plan on doing this January if needed. We checked in on the Friday before FD started so we used an available room only discount for Fri and Sat and re-checked in Sun morning with FD. We were able to get our tixs to the parks that were attached to our FD package early on Friday by going to Guest Services at the park (we went to Epcot but other parks have same place.) Hope that helps!!

That sale has been available for the last couple of weeks. So it probably doesn't have anything to do with the website being down.

NOW...I'm still going with "we're next" because that thought makes me...

That is what we did for our November trip. Room only for Thanksgiving Day and then FD for the rest of our trip. I have a AAA discount that was applied to teh Room Only night. It made a difference.

Quick question -- I'm trying to make a reservation online for the Luau for Jan 19. The whole month of Jan is gray, but the 180 day mark is now. I've made a few other dining reservations. Are they sometimes slow opening up the dinner show reservations?

I'm not sure but I had the same problem when booking a F! dining package. Totally greyed out--but I called and had no problem booking it. I'd call and see if the cm can just do it for you. Good luck!

We are booked for Jan 2-9 and I am really looking for a RO offer. I will take an AP discount or anything that gives me a room discount. I tried to get a AAA discount but the cast member said they do not have any for my stay. Which is weird? I will call back and speak to another cast member and see if I get the same answer.

We are book in a garden room at the Poly with Deluxe dinning.

I think we've settled on Jan 26th- Feb 1st or 2nd provided free dining is offered. Should I go ahead a make my ADR's? I'm just worried free dining won't be offered then and I'll have to change my dates and cancel all the reservations.

Better to have the reservations than to not. Cancelling is a small inconvenience compared to having the plus dining plan and no available reservations! I have made my dining reservations as I would if I got the free plus dining (7 reservations for 7 days), if they don't offer it or we decide to stay at a value with QS dining I'll cancel all but the 1 or 2 I feel we MUST do!

My apologies if this is a dumb question, but do we have to make our resort/park reservations before we make dining reservations? I'm waiting on the FD schedule for next Spring before booking our trip, but was wondering if I would be able to book ADR as soon as the 180 day mark hits (without making any other plans)?
