What happens after you pay the deposit at VS?

I followed the link and paid the deposit and then rec'd a receipt. Anything else? Would I get a confirmation of the reservation? How does it normally work after I paid the deposit? I know they'll send me an invoice 60 days prior. Just curious.

Additionally, what kind of view would builiding 6 have?

Our experience was that VS returned a quote in less than 24 hours and VU exceeded the promised 48 hours.

My VS experience.

1- asked for a quote November 17th for Mid March.

2- Got response same day.

3- I paid my $300 deposit November 18th.

4- Got an auto response that may payment was accepted right away.

5- Got an official receipt from VS November 19th along with an outline of the next steps. Full payment due 20-30 days from vacation start.

6- 52 days out in late January, I got an email stating my final payment was due, and a link to pay it.

7- I paid it Jan 20.

8- Got an auto response that may payment was accepted right away.

9 - Jan 21 Got an official receipt from VS and a note that all I had to do was Bring a photo ID at check in.

At this point, all the funds have cleared my bank, I will call in a few days to the resort to make sure they have my name. Then I just wait for mid march too come.

I waited a week and wondered if I would get a message back saying it wasn't available any more - but that did not happen. I put down the deposit and got an email confirmation.

We leave on sat to go to florida and will arrive bonnet creek on Monday.

I have to say this board has been a lifesaver and a wealth of knowledge. I am a researcher and organizer by nature and this place has helped tremendously.

I always thought planning a trip to disney would be so daunting but this board and all the advise has really helped and made it much easier!

Thanks and I will post a review when we are back

I have a few questions that I am sure have been asked and answered, but haven't found them.

If you don't have a rental car, then is skipping the car pass/hard sell possible?

Cost for a cab to Walmart for supplies, or is there a delivery service?

I know shuttles weren't great in the past, but people on trip advisor seem to be using them regularly, so have things improved?

The link in the FAQ to shuttle fees is broken. Does anyone know if it is still 15 pp to Universal?

I recommend Garden Grocer for grocery delivery. They will leave groceries with bell services if you are not there and bell services will keep them refrigerated for you. We had to wait about an hour for our room to be ready and when we got to our room, bell services had already delivered our groceries to our refrigerator in our room.

I booked with vacation strategy two months after I received the quote. I booked 9 months in advance of our stay (Mar 2013) but I noticed on this board that someone who is overlapping dates with me booked more recently for the same price I paid.
