I'm still tearing up as I type.
Seriously, if you guys don't stop I am going to have to put my phone in rice!

Edited to add: One of you guys were worried about getting caught by a CM - I was totally singing my heart out to One Little Spark when a CM came on, told me I had just made her day, lol!
That's Awesome! I was the one getting worried. So glad it's not just me.

I have to wait for my TA to do it Thursday. This is the first time I have done a WDW trip with TA. Not liking lack of control. Has anyone used Its a Small World agency? Are they quick about hoping on promos? Already sent email with heads up (acted like she did not know-maybe she didn't) saying we want it and to upgrade to dining. Hope I find out fast that all is set!

You absolutely should not give up. I checked every hour on the hour and eventually got one. People change their ressies all the time. Don't give up.

Oh and I have family in Putnam county. It's very pretty there.

Crying is good for the soul, but not good for the phone.

When I drink I find its easier to watch my children because I see all 3 of them double, so all 6 of them of them take all my attention

I used them our first trip and they got the free dining applied the day it became available. I guess it depends on your individual TA though but I would think most if not all are very experienced adding discounts/promos to their clients res.

ETA I used Small World Vacations (if that is who you mean).

We are currently booked at AOA LM. We originally wanted to book an AOA suite like last year but it was way out of budget. We really, really love AOA. The zero entry pool and splash pad being the number one seller for us as both my kids are not fond of being held in the water they like some freedom. Since AOA LM is a no go for the discount I am stuck.
Pop seems super fun for my kids but I am just not fond of the theme or look.. I have two pretty light sleepers so I worry about noise level and I am bummed that there is no zero entry pool. I love the one bus stop!
I am also considering POR because of the AB rooms. We would book preferred to be guaranteed AB. I love the bigger beds, trundle (my 2 year old could use that rather than a pack n play) and the two sinks. My oldest son liked the theme of the AB rooms but he resort as a whole, though very very nice and lush just does not feel fun!

What would you do?
Say the heck with it and keep LM AOA paying for the dining plan(we are fine with the price point but are more comfortable with a lower price)
Move to Pop with FD upgrade
Move to POR preferred with FD

Thanks all!!
I think you can not go wrong with either pop or por. My kids LOVED Pop. It's not any noisier than any other value, including AOA, I'm guessing.

OK now that we have either gotten our FD or are waiting until tomorrow to call...we have some time to spare.

Sooooo, with that, what is the one Table Service you are hoping to score. I so wanted "Be Our Guest" but can not get it for the first week of Sept. no matter how many times a day I look.

What is your one "must do" TS for your free dining pleasure??

Thanks again Black...you done a good thing here
I couldn't get it either, same week, so we're doing lunch.
Must haves were Ohana, Biergarten, and Crystal Palace.

I'm a total control freak when it comes to planning. I think I'd have a stroke if I had to rely on someone else to make my reservations. More power to you people though!

Thanks to everyone here for all of the good information that helped us make a decision. Now I hope to see some other Dis members when we are there
My DD, her DH & my granddaughter will be there from Sep 12 - Sep 21 (we're staying an extra day since we got the FD - THANK YOU, Joe!!) - staying at POR.
