you can always look for a room outside of Disney on Hotel Plaza Blvd right by Downtown Disney. Some of those places are cheap for one night if you dont mind changing places for your last night stay. Thats what I would do

I still don't understand how one additional night would cost $700? To add another day on your park passes would only be $15 pp and food isn't that much. A value resort would be $130 maybe for a Saturday night?

And I agree- keep checking every day or so for a LM room to be open for that night. Most likely it will become available by February as availability changes all the time.

The $700 is in airfare costs. If they fly home on Sat, it is one price. By flying home on Sun, the price is much lower. It could be a savings of $200 a plane ticket, but if you have 4 family members that airfare savings of $200 per ticket can add up. I know in my case, there were 3 of us flying and the airfare price difference was $300 per ticket, so by not leaving on our originally scheduled departure date, I saved $900 less whatever it cost me to stay the extra two days. In my case I probably broke even because I used the savings to treat my family to a Bay Lake Tower stay, but I'd rather have the memories than give the airlines that extra $900.

Many airport hotels provide a free shuttle from/to the airport. This way you don't have to worry about getting to the airport on time Sunday.
I agree. Stay at the park late Saturday and then head to an airport hotel.
On Sunday, you can sleep in, check in at the airport, have breakfast and look around at the shops.

that's not what the OP said. She said going a day later saves her $1000. If she decides to stay at Disney 1 more day she still saves about $300. I read it like the PP to be that 1 extra day at Disney would cost $700! I think she's paying for DDP so that's some of the $$

Not sure it would be worth adding extra days and stuff at this point. I think if a room at LM opens up and you can add to your reservation great if not you will save $$ by just staying at an airport hotel. DME will pick you up at 8am anyways on Sunday if you flight is at 11. You won't have time to hit a park or really even grab breakfast.

Duh! I actually went back and reread the original post to make sure what I was saying was accurate before I posted. When I reread it now, I see how I was wrong. I am having a lazy Sunday where my brain is not functioning up to capacity (although once I had children, I don't think it ever went back to capacity).

You can have your currently-booked package with dining plan, then just leave that behind for the one extra day. Just book a room-only room separately. you don't need to have the dining plan for that last day.

Yep!

CALL! We have had similiar situations. We wanted to arrive earlier and also have the dining plan and tickets added to those days. We found someone to help us and give us those days over the phone. I may be wrong but.... I think sometimes it depends on who you talk to. One year after our vacation was almost over we wanted to stay a couple of more days and they made it possible. One year I planned late and started out with three days and finally ended up with a week. JUST KEEP CALLING!
