You would only have to cancel your package if you wanted to switch to a room only reservation (and vice versa). If you simply want to add a room discount to your existing package, you can do it without having to completely rebook. Provided there is availability at the resort for the deal, of course.

And as far as the black out dates in October, I have no plans to be in WDW during those dates. We will be in Disneyland in May and back at WDW in December. Acting like its some conspiracy against you by listing potential black outs dates for a certain time frame is, well, just bizarre.

This is a great Disney planning site with indispensable information from numerous people, and you are certainly not making any friends with your bizarre accusations and unkind responses on this thread and many others.
Oh yes, I tried to "hide my inaccuracies" after it had already been quoted. Like that would work. I'm so glad you speak for "everyone". I guess that's why you are so worshipped.

I came here for ACCURATE information, not for friendship. And I've found far more accurate info than not, it just happens that I feel your's is misleading and negative. It's bizarre when people have no life outside of Disney.

Rule of thumb NORMALLY if staying deluxe RO can save more, FD can save you more at Mods and Values..
We are staying POFQ and there's 4 of us. So I'm guessing that FD will probably save me more.

Also, just to take you down a notch from thinking everything is about you, I didn't say you were the one trying to detour people from going on your week. I said it seems like there are several that do that. I guess you missed my disclaimer at the bottom as well. Didn't realize I'm not allowed to make jokes.

Is it difficult to switch resorts when a discount is released? We are at AoA LM but with FD, POR would actually be cheaper for us. We might move to an AoA suite with FD for about $300 more than our current package and I don't anticipate that switch to be hard. But I wasn't sure about moving to POR.

Does it interfere with ADRs?

Yes, BOG takes advance dining reservations, unfortunately they seem to book up right at the 180 day mark. Once the newness wears off they will have more openings, but that will be a while.

Our favorite restaurants are:

Ohana
Whispering Canyon
Kona
Liberty Tree
Coral Reef
Mama Melroses
Bombs
Chef Mickeys
Crystal Palace

I've asked for links to show me where Columbus Day is not proven to play a part in the blackout date but no one has shown me a link yet. All of the historical data I've seen shows me that Columbus Day appears to be the deciding factor. Maybe I have bad data, but someone could point me towards the correct data if that's the case, instead of telling me I'm wrong.

No one can say for sure that fall breaks play a significant roll in the historical data of blackouts because fall breaks are spread far and wide. In my state alone, they spread anywhere from mid-September to Thanksgiving. Disney doesn't say, "we won't offer discounts during major fall break weeks".

There were statements that "historically" blackouts were also caused by certain conventions. Again, what I have seen, does not reflect that at all since some form of discount has often been available during the conventions.

My whole point is that I don't feel like truthful historical information is being represented here a lot of the time. Why not point folks in that direction and let them see for themselves?

I keep being told that I can't be linked to the historical data that people are referring to because it's on competing sites... even when I PM people.

In fairness, my frustration is not just with this thread, it's spread over other discount threads as well.

I agree that the majority of folks are here to help others but it's just a little fishy and irritating when you argue with someone point but refuse to backup your information.
If you want some form of proof, I get it,but your way of getting people to "talk" to you, could use some help. Whether you realize it or not, your very rude in your responses....you get more with sugar than vinegar, I believe is the saying.

Not hard at all. As long as you are already booked as a package, you can switch resorts easily. You will keep the same reservation number, so it will have no effect on your ADRs. If you have booked a prepay meal without having a dining plan, you can get a refund once you are booked with FD. All you need to do is call Disney dining and let them know that you now have a dining plan tied to our reservation and that you would like your money back for the pre-paid meal.

Like I said, I'm not here to make friends. I have a life outside of travel forums. Just here for info that people don't seem to want to share when they get called out on something.

Just curios...I'm coming to WDW Oct 17th-27th. If free dining becomes available, are my dates normally in the "safe zone"?
Thanks!!

Thanks, I'm already booked for the dining plan too. We will be using it regardless of FD or not so that part shouldn't be an issue.

I take this site for what it is...just to get an idea for what's out there and "possible" offers, blackout dates and discounts that might be available sometime soon. I don't need proof, I just want ideas. My proof will be when it actually happens.

I'm lol-ing about the "not cleaning"!!! I'm am so distracted from my housework since I've started planning! Glad to know I'm not the only one who's succumbed to this planning monster!
