Yep. Danny was skeptical, too, but he said he looked through all of the details and couldn't find anything that said they are excluded. If they really are eligible, I think they will be gone in about 10 minutes.

I agree. Some people have already searched this morning and some September dates already show no availability ready. Very weird for them to include those rooms.

A few of us were discussing this as well. I'm willing to bet that it's a VERY VERY limited number of those rooms available for the promo...maybe just a handful. This way they can say they were included, but just sold out, and people wouldn't be angry with Disney over it.

I will be very anxious to see the first post from the person who got a GP FD discount applied to those LM rooms :-)

No LM rooms available for 9/7 to 9/15. I tried booking them last week and figured if fd was included we would just change rooms...

Woo hoo! I switched our trip from August 21-28 to September 2-9 a week ago because I was afraid FD wouldn't be offered that early in August-- seems like my hunch was right! The last week of August must be catching on with families from the Northeast trying to get a trip in right before school starts!

Hmmm, I bet the royal rooms will be included. They're an upgrade from a standard, unlike the LM rooms at AoA, which are the cheapest at the resort. Only a guess on my part!

So we're looking at a May 9th Disney Visa release with the GP coming out a few days later?

Can anyone remind me of the upgrade charge from QSDP to DDP?
Still trying to figure out if we should stick with value or bump up depending on the fee for upgrading

It's about $18 to go from QS to Regular.

I'm just glad there are some firm dates out, very surprised the last week of August was not included. I knew there would be a free dining offer coming, but really thought August 25 would be the start date. They must have an unusually high resort occupancy rate during that week this year.

It's about $18 per adult, per night and about $3 per child, per night to upgrade from quick service to the regular DDP.

I think it was my fault for spilling the beans...
