None for BLT 2 bedrooms

Hi all, OMG I just realized I was posting this morning on the wrong thread. Totally meant to post here. Brief sum up for those not lurking on the other

If you are lurking (or posting) there, you can skip this

No 2 bedrooms villas at BLT in any category. They also are not available for room only discounts

So sad. We could have switched to a 2 bedroom WL, but it wouldn't have saved us a lot, and we had our hearts set (and our ADRs set) on BLT.

It was touch and go for a minute because a CM gave me the wrong quote on WL and I agreed to change (it was a LOT cheaper) and then she realized she only counted 3/4 nights, so I asked to stay at BLT and she had already let it go and couldn't get it back. Ugh!!! She called a supervisor, though, and an extra 2 bedroom villa magically appeared for us That does make me a little nervous, though, are we now overbooked? Then what happens?

So, no free dining for us

But at least we're still going on our dream vacation

Good luck to all of you! I am anxiously awaiting your good results!

I was on hold not at all, Btw. So that is a bonus. I would have been extra sad if I waited 2 hours to hear the bad news.

Def just Visa. I tried to call and sweetly ask about the offer ....I do not have a Visa, and I was denied and told to call back Thursday!!
I am so sad that LM are excluded I have no idea what to do now....... guess more running of numbers and reading reviews to see what the best fit is.

There no way to apply a FD discount only to certain nights. Sounds like she was trying to apply one of the room only codes. You should have saved a substantial among of money with the FD offer and the discount would be the exact same amount at any moderate or deluxe resort, a free dining discount does not fluctuate from resort to resort.If you didn't get the right info, I would call back.

Yay! I called in right at 7, had no wait, and upgraded my CBR res on 9/8-9/14 to free dining! My CM was super nice - she didn't know about the FD, put me on hold for 2 mins and came back and confirmed the FD and walked me through the upgrade in her system. I told her she's probably going to have a busy day and she agreed but sounded excited. If I were a CM I'd probably love working a day like today where nearly everyone who calls will be happy to have a nice upgraded FD to add to their package!

Thanks to all who have helped post info on this deal - esp. Mr. Joe Black and 411 - not slighting others who have posted and participated but you two seem to be the front runners on this thread!

Was on hold for about 17 minutes but was able to get Free Dining for POFQ September 25-29! Had to upgrade from Pool View to River View. CM said Pool View not available (will call again later and on Thursday to try to switch back!). Also, was required to put additional $200 on Disney Visa to verify "the promotion" even though my deposit was paid on Disney Visa. Never had to do that in past, but didn't question it since I have to pay it anyway.

Where can I find my updated information on the Disney site? There's no listing for the dining category, just the ADRs that I've already made. I'm a little nervous because I had to remind the CM to charge my Visa $200 to secure free dining, and now I don't see it listed on my reservation (although the total cost information has updated to what the CM told me).
