This is for royal room pool view. So not much discount?

Thanks. Will check out Expedia?
If you haven't already, try an arrival of 3/2 for 2 nights or 3/1 for 3 nights to see if that shows availability. If it does, you can book those nights and then call back and drop the night(s) not needed. I'm not sure why that happens, but sometimes adding a day or two onto what you need comes up available when nothing is showing available for your exact dates. Good luck.

No more cramped than a LM room.

LM is avail if you book 3/3-3/9. It only requires $141 down. Wait a day and then cancel the unwanted days. I work for one of the agencies, and I do this for clients all the time. I don't know why they do this, but it works.

What about Swan/Dolphin? They may have a good deal & you can check out the Boardwalk Area & still go to DTD?

Princessap, we were unable to get a reservation in the Little Mermaid either (Jan 2013). We had been talking about going and by the time we decided to book the room, they were gone. We found the rooms available through hotels.com for the same price we were going to pay through Disney. Why don't you see if you could get the rooms that way? The Little Mermaid room was absolutely adorable and we loved our stay in AofA.
Good luck.

Was it for 3/3 you were looking? I pulled up the Disney site and a LM room is available for 1 night on 3/3. Not sure if you were looking for it under a discount or rack rate, but it's available for $169 rack rate.

The LM rooms are not available under the spring room discount - if you read the find print, they tell you they're excluded. In fact, the LM rooms have been excluded from every discount since they opened. They have no trouble booking them without promos.

The suggestion of POR is great because of the boat. We have stayed at POR for a night post cruise and didn't do the parks, just took the boat to DTD. If Royal Rooms prices seem high, I would just go with a standard room at POR or POFQ.

I agree with this. We were originally going to book an LM room but heard they were very crowded so we moved over to POR & booked a Royal Room.
