i realized that my due date was today so i tried to pay last night online and got rejected three times. i called and tried over the phone payment (automated) and was rejected again, by this time i have knots in my stomach!! i called back and got a rep, it was rejected again! we tried a lower amount and it was rejected again, we tried an even lower amount and it finally went through. they gave me a 48 hour extension, but i just realized that monday is a holiday.

i am a nervous wreck that they are going to cancel my reservations!! i wont be happy until this is paid for!!
I had a similar problem last year. My money was due on a Monday but I can't pay until the following Monday. I was going crazy but like I read from another post there is an unspoken rule they will give you a week!!!! This is why I love Disney!!!

Unless I've missed something, there was speculation that LM might have its own refill station, but the last place I left it was we wouldn't know for sure until the section opened.

I have read no reports there is a refill station at the Cars pool.

The Nemo section does have a refill station at the Drop Off pool bar, which is different than other value resorts, and perhaps where this speculation originated.

Is it really more than a 2 hour bus trip? That seems a bit ridiculous!
No, the trip is not actually two hours but the advice comes from wanting to make sure to allow enough time and not cut it too close. The extra time allows for you to wait for the AoA bus, make the actual trip barring any complications, maybe visit the restroom, and retrieve any checked items you may have at the luggage center.

For example last year we left Epcot to return to Pop Century for DME, and during that trip there was a huge rain storm. So the normal bus ride was slower, it was harder to get off the bus and get over to the luggage area, etc. -- just a little bit more unforeseen stress/factors that slowed things down.

Thank you! I was afraid that meant 2 hours on the bus itself, and that would be torture with my little guy!

We are suprising the kids and picking them up from school. They get out at 2pm so if we drove straight through we would arrive around 6am (if not earlier), so we figured we should stop. I don't think they would let us check in that early, lol.

We have a room only reservation for 9/15 and then we are going to the Contemporary, which is the only place they think we are staying.

As long as you let them know what's going on, they are pretty reasonable. I'd recommend calling or sending an email.

We have stayed at Value Disney Resorts a couple times, and I will be honest I thought the same thing, but I honestly was worried but when I got there, I totally enjoyed the walk from our room to the main building and where we caught the bus to go to the parks! It is just so beautiful and so clean that you can look at all the different icons if the buildings! Enjoy!

You will probably be ok if you make sure you notify Disney of the situation. They just don't want to be holding a room if you aren't coming I think! I would call ASAP and send money ASAP and have a wonderful time at Disney!

I am beyond excited right now. We stood at POP with my 3 boys in May and they loved it but I know for certain one of my sons, and possibly all of them, would FLIP over the cars suites and the cars theme in general. I realize there probably aren't a lot of answers yet but I'll ask anyway.

I cant tell the size of the beds. I know the master has a queen but are the other two full size? The murphy bed almost looks like a single.

Anyone have good pics of the cars pool?

Is there a quiet area as far as rooms go in the cars area? We requested very specific when we went to POP and we got everything we requested.

Are bed rails available at this resort?

Is there a menu list somewhere?

Thanks guys!!!

Kim

The distance of 1/4 mile is about 2 city blocks; so count on a walk of two blocks from the LM section to the main hall and the Nemo pool. If your going to the parks you'll enjoy all of the characters in both LM and LK; if you're coming back to your room, you'll just be more tired and fall asleep faster.

Sounds like your bank is the issue, not releasing the money. Did you deposit a check...sometimes it takes a few days before they release that money to be used. Can you look at your account online? It should tell you what you have and what is usable at this point in time.

yes, i realize it is the bank - i deposited $2,200 CASH saturday morning giving me a balance of over three grand - more than enough to cover the disney payment, also taking into consideration outstanding/pending withdrawals. i am quite surprised that it wasn't available immediately because even when i deposit checks my bank releases them immediately. i looked online and it says that $1200 is available, yet i could only pay $500 on my trip. i am sure it will all work out tomorrow... i hope

Don't fret. They don't cancel until 30 days out. So you actually have 15 days to pay. (from when it was due) I know this because I was waiting on a bonus check to pay for my vacation. Our 45 days was 8/3, and I paid on 8/16. You get an email a few days after your 45 days telling you that you are late, and it gives you the date it is going to cancel. (30 days out)
