Looks like its been fixed now. Just tried to check my dates again, this time got through no bother and the price is nearly £7k and not £500.

I await my Disney 'Sorry but....' email!!

I was watching this last night and wondering the same thing. DISboards is public so I'm sure hundreds of non members were watching as well and trying out the bookings. Can you imagine the administrative nightmare for the staff

Oh well, I suppose I won't bother trying to get through to the UK phone lines for any queries or anything for the next week .... I think they are going to be a tad busy


Here's hoping at least some of your bookings 'slip through the system' and are honoured

Although public, I personally don't think there would have been many "outside" bookings. Someone on the The Dibb said they counted the thread up to a point and found 45 people had booked.

Still no updates. I really need to receive my cancellation email so I can stop obsessing over this! LOL Thank god I'm off work today

I just think it's funny how it is all kicking off over there. People really do get upset over the silliest of things. Like I said there, I am fully accepting of the fact that they will realise their mistake (probably already have) and be contacting people to say they won't honour the prices. It's really not worth getting upset about. Most (if not all) of the people that booked did so knowing it was a mistake and should have accepted the fact that there was a very real chance they might have to pay the full price or cancel.

Exactly, Joh, it's always like that over there though. Threads get closed at the drop of a hat, I just don't want the thread closed so I can keep up-to-date with whats happening.

As long as you get your money back then at the end of the day you haven't lost anything. All of us took a shot knowing that.

Well, I have commented a couple of times but, you know me, I never can keep my mouth shut. It's OK over there, though, because I'm not a moderator

I made a comment on here about the moderation over there so one of the moderators from there reported me here. I think its a good site but could be far better, they don't like my opinions

Sometimes I wish I had a different user name over there, I did lose it slighty a few month back, said something I shouldn't. Someone posted after me they thought my comments were offensive (they were right)

Just paid the full £500 balance.

Went back in to check... and it says that we have £5699 to pay by September next year. Think they have clicked, however I've not had an email yet.

I think I might call them? What do you think?

Others on The Dibb are reporting the same, thats why I haven't went back in to pay my full balance.

Personally, I won't be calling them. Any other price glitch I've been involved with (albeit tiny in comparison to this) the company has always contacted me and asked me if I'd like to pay full price or cancel. Their terms and conditions state if it's more than 10% price difference you will be able to cancel.

If you do call them then let us know what happens. I would expect things to start happening soon as I'd imagine they'd need the morning to decide a plan of action for staff to start implementing. Just my opinion though.
