Got it!

Just saved $1480 for our 10nt stay at CSR (2 rooms for 7 people) Sept 12-22. I called at 7:55 eastern time (I forgot about the time zone difference FL to IL). I was on hold for 5 minutes, and it took her about 10-15 minutes to add FD to my existing reservations! Now we're all set!

It would be interesting for someone to track and ask which categories and resorts are showing FD...

So far...
Beach Club...Laguna/Pool view or higher
Contemporary...Standard view or higher
Wilderness Lodge...Woods view or higher...
POFQ....river view or higher
Poly...standard view or higher

Any others?

Sounds like everyone is getting what they want and nothing is selling out at this point. Aside from a few rooms not being eligible, all is good.

Wait times are very low this time around....this has been a great experience.

Shortest FD hold time ever. My actual booking took a LONG time due to the computer issues and my need for three packages and three room only. Can't say enough how awesome the CM was though.

My TA was able to get fee dining for everyone traveling with me, September 25- October 6, all staying at Caribbean, one ADA room with preferred location. The others standard rooms (I believe). So excited!

Yes Spanish is the best way to shorten the time on Hold. When Stay/Play/Dine offer started in October 2012. People on the disboards were reporting 45 to 60 minutes on hold. My TA did not even get on Hold when she called in Spanish.
