Am I doing something wrong? 7 day park hopper from the chart, $285 for children, $300. for over ten. Not what the web-site is quoting today.
I got a much larger discount on my rooms at POR than the sheet was showing, but passed on the tix because the discount was not near the amounts on the first page of the thread. The savings were less than 10%. $190 or so for 9 of us on 6 day base tix (8 adults and 1 child). I like the room only flexibility in case something happens to change our plans.

It was still a good deal!

I would wait on hold about 20 minutes before giving up just to see if they can modify your current reservation without having to cancel the current.

I'm on hold 28 minutes. I am about to confirm my online ressie and just cancel my old one. There is no difference, correct?

Thanks. 40 minutes now. I booked my new ressie. Thanks so much for answering me I appreciate it.

I'll hold a few more minutes so I can cancel my old ressie. Otherwise, I'll call again tomorrow from work.

Thanks so much!

I know it wasn't that much of a savings but it took me just the trouble of rebooking and on the phone to cancel so I'm happy I did it.

Thanks!

Hi everyone! I decided to stay one night At AoA in a Little Mermaid room because I really want to stay there. $168.75!!! I knew that, but it still seems really pricey!

Oh well. Then, I was going to switch to All Star Music, but I decided to switch to Pop. This way I can walk over to the resort to check in and get my tickets before heading to the parks. It should be fine! I haven't stayed at Pop since 2007 so I'm looking forward to it. The last time I stayed at Music was in 2010.

I got my standard room and six day park hoppers for $1169.09. A savings of $239.09. If I had wanted to add QSDP it would basically have covered it, just $13.61 more. I didn't bother because I think I can eat cheaper, since I don't always get dessert when I pay OOP and I can eat cheaply, when I want! You know what I mean... I don't get a dessert if I get a meal, but sometimes I'll get a dessert FOR a meal!

Oh, and I didn't have to wait long. About 32 minutes from start to finish. Can't wait to see that phone bill!

Have you tried pricing it on-line in the special offers? If it shows a better price then just book it and then call and cancel the old package.
