Even if you don't upgrade, I'd drop the Waterpark option personally.
If I could, I would certainly drop the water parks! But I can't choose my own tickets! There is actually only one choice and that's the 7 days hopper + water parks. The booking I have at AOA only includes 5 days base ticket - 'cause we actually don't need more.

Another option I just checked was staying at Saragota Springs deluxe studio with regular dining plan - which is only about $70 more per person than PORFQ with QSDP (so it's actually cheaper to book Saragota than upgrading the DP at FQ )

If it were me, I would take Saragota Springs Resort (SSR). Now, full disclosure, I haven't been to either resort yet. (going to POFQ next month) But I love the atmosphere and theming of SSR. You're even closer to DTD than POFQ (you can walk). They have a spa/massage center/salon on site. There's a TS restaurant on site (at POFQ, you have to go to riverside) You'll also get a bigger room. Now SSR is a very large resort, so IMO that would be the only downside.

We are going no matter what too! We're booked at LM rooms at AOA, but considering PORFQ to get a little more space in the room, queen size beds and since we are travelling with an 81-yo in a wheelchair and my mother who has just gotten a new knee and hip, the size of the resort is quite good
I know you didn't want more posts on your situation to annoy people waiting for news on Jan 2013 discounts but...I wanted to add that I stayed in POFQ last September with my dad, who is disabled and needs an electric scooter, my 71 year old mom, and a 12 year old. My parents always pack everything but the kitchen sink and I didn't know how the 4 of us would fit in a regular room with 2 queen beds, all their stuff, and an electric scooter. But it actually wasn't bad at all. I was quite impressed with the space we had. Don't get me wrong, it was still a little tight but manageable for sure! Then getting to the buses and the food court was easy! We were on the second floor and I don't think we asked for a handicap accessible room but if you do that in advance I bet you'll be even better situated!

Is there ever a rhyme or reason to what time of day they release the special offers?

We are going at the of January but if we get free dining, we'll stay another night but I need to finalize before I buy plane tickets... Come on Disney I have things (other than Disney) to get done!

First thing in the morning by phone. The time they update the website can vary. Last couple discounts, I believe they updated the website around 10-11am ET.

The phone lines open at 7am ET.

Just called, was told there are no discounts out for Jan yet, possibly this month or next.

CM said there would be no discounts for LM rooms for at least a year....

And to add to that, They have been releasing them to start on Mondays. (with the exception of the most recent one for the holiday season which started yesterday)

I think that'd be crazy if they wait to release Jan discounts until November. That only gives people 2 months to plan their trip and for some families that's not enough time to budget for a vacation. Just my opinion though because obviously WDW has this whole discount thing down to a science.

Someone at Disney is probably having a good laugh at our expense as we try to guess their strategies!!

I think the economy is taking a tumble at the moment. Not sure if Disney knows it, but I hope they do and give good discounts. I'm not sure I will take another trip in January if this is how long I have to wait for discounts. I have no clue what to do with our dining reservations or how much to budget for food.

I booked through AAA and already have a discount. Free dining would only save us an extra $200 or so. We knew what we wanted, so we took the discount we had. We can apply FD instead if it comes out. For those waiting, you guys might want to explore that route. The discount will pay for your membership.

I agree with this.
And.....
It seems like they are offering the discounts to foreign travelers now...I wonder why?

International travelers need to plan farther in advance, so they get the deals first.

I am planning a trip for my family and my MIL will be joining us. She'll be getting her own room. Where do I find this intl site and the deals? It would be nice if I could at least get her a discount.
