Hello, I was on the phone with disney about 45min for over an hour to add free dining and add an extra day to the reservations . I haven't received a confirmation email and my resort details have updated online for the extra day, but says nothing about dining... Should i call back? did the person i spoke to never add free dining like she said? She even said it was added! what do u think?

Oh they're flipping lots of people out. Plus the CMs follow it if they see the site, then they are wrong too.

Add that to the CMs telling people they can't have free dining if their trip goes past the 25th and its just a big ol' mess.

We waited until today to book our vacation and had really no problem doing so online at about 6:45. We did wait about 30-40 mins to make an ADR though (HDDR). We didn't notice the typo (thank goodness) and the booking worked fine for our dates (7-14).

Good luck all!

tinkerbell- that is the same for me. my resort is updated but nothing about the free dining. I am guessing it is all ok though because I spoke to dining reservations and they knew I had it

call them - ask if they can see it on your reservation. should be able to do that with minimal wait

yay finally have free dining and thankfully didn't spend a moment on the phone to get it, my Disney travel agent made the phone call this morning to switch it over to free dining and by booking through her, I get a $200 Disney gift card, luv it. Sept 23-Oct 6. Only strange part was pop century went up by $14 for the reservation. Its only about $0.50 per room per day but it actually worked for us because it took us over the $5500 mark we needed to go from a $150 gc to a $200 gc.

So excited!!! Woke up this morning and booked online at 645 central time with no problem! Sept 10 - 18 at pop century. The price did go up a few dollars with the free dining package, which was odd. We're going to celebrate my mom's birthday at MNSSHP on Friday the 13th! We've never celebrated a birthday there before so this will be really great! Thanks a million black and 411. So appreciate the heads up on this!

Free dining at it after 45 minute hold! Saved us 800 bucks almost! For those of you who had expressed interest in what the upgrade cost would be for standard two deluxe, I asked her agent to price it out for me. It ended up taking the total package price back to what it was at the rack rate for two adults!! Which is fine if price is not an option, but the whole point of going this time of year and making the effort to get the free dining is to save a little bit of money for us.

So I just checked again and if you book the room with the rack room rate it works out cheaper by about $0.50 a day, while the amount is minimal, its not exactly a free food plan if the price is higher with a free meal plan. I noticed it happened on pop century by not the all stars.

Could it be taxes? I believe there are resorts in different counties within WDW. Different counties could have different tax structures/rates, and also how room rates are affected by certain discounts or giveaways. I could see that causing a $0.50 discrepancy per day.
