I am so nervous, I keep hearing that there will be a VERY limited number of FD for the LM rooms at AoA. My daughters have their hearts set on staying there. I plan on calling right at 7am on May 9th, what do you guys think my odds of getting it are? I'll be there right in the middle of the month Sept 15-20.

hello my friend and sorry but if you read this thread you will find the response for all of your answers repeated many times, itīs a really hard job for us to answer the same question over and over again, we bring the information here and we try to answer all of the doubts that our Disfriends have but first at least you must search at least in this thread to find if the same question have been answered,in this way we will have more time to answer new questions and that will be in benefit of many others, that itīs my point of view

Sorry but at this moment itīs imposible to know that, if I was you I will try to have a backup plan ready at other resort like Pop Century, itīs like staying at AOA only cross the generation gap bridge and you are there no more than 5 minutes walking

Does anyone know if there is a limit to the number of rooms one person can book with Free Dining on one Disney Visa? We have 4 families planning on going together in September and 2 different Disney Visa holders. Booking together would be ideal but we can have 2 call, if necessary.
I've done 3 rooms a couple different times. I'm thinking 4 was the number but I'm not 100% sure about that. Hopefully someone else can answer. Either way if 2 people have the Disney Visa then you should be fine regardless.

We'll likely add raglan road too.

We're there aug 16- sep1 but don't want to be too tied down to TS times this time around.

Very stressed about this because we already have plane tickets.

Booking now isn't going to hold a spot for you if a discount comes out. However, if you're planning to go even if you don't get a discount (and yes, you can downgrade), booking now will give you more time to pay it off. You can't stack discounts.

If you are looking for FD, travel dates appear to be for Sept 2 - Sept 25. I too was hoping for mid Aug 😢. Depending on your dates of your plane ticket, there are summer discounts on rooms. Maybe that would work for you. Yes, you can change your resort and no, you can not combine discounts. Getting a deal you want can be stressful. Hope when you get there, you have a Magical Time 😄
