Start about five minutes or so before. When you do get through just keep saying "agent" to get past all the questions.

I woke up at 7:30 this morning and my heart was racing that I'd forgotten to call Disney!

Oops...it was only Wednesday. 2 alarms are set for early tomorrow morning so that I can be up and ready for work before 7am.

Please tell me I'm not the only one!

My daughter started her call about 6:58-6:59 and got right through to CM. She was the CM's 1st call. If you call too early, though, you'll get a msg that rervations aren't open and ask you to call back. Good luck with your timing.

Well, the excitement here is certainly mounting tremendously... I don't know if I am going to be able to sleep tonight, I'll be worried about getting up so early and getting me that PORS room w/FD.

At this point it would be so disappointing to go without it, we've gotten so excited over it.

After I book it tomorrow, just imagine this household:

Ha! This will be us too! Along with my coworkers! (I don't know whether they will be happier that I got it or happier that I will be done chattering about it!)

Add me to the bundle of nerves group!! And I can't even get up early to call, since we booked through a TA! So it's completely out of my hands - yikes.

We are booked at POR in a standard room, which I've been reading is sold out now - fingers crossed because as a family of 5 that's our only real option haha!

We want to upgrade our plan to the regular but I'm not sure if I wanted to upgrade the girls or leave them on the quick service as they're not sit down people. Do I have that choice when we're in separate rooms? If I have to upgrade them, can we use some of their table service meals? Thanks for the responses!
We also have two rooms at a value resort.... one for my husband and me, and one for my adult daughter (age 24) .... each room is it's own reservation. We did the fd with the upgrade for both reservations, as we will be eating our meals together, but I could have done it with just ours. Will they be eating any of the table service with you? You should figure out how much dollar amount it would be to pay for the table service they want to eat. Have fun!!!

I have a question for everyone. I was wondering if any of you had end of Aug reservations, but changed them to Sept when you found out the FD dates? I would love to change our dates, but as DS is now in middle school, he had sooooo much work to make up this past Oct when we took both our kids out of school. I would do it again, but it was very hard for him. I'm more curious than anything about people switching dates.

There is a room only discount through Sep 28th at least. And who knows? Maybe they'll extend this offer a little ... will my fingers crossed for all of you who "just missed" the (/2 - 9/25 offer dates.
