Yeah, you did it. It worked!!! Happy to be friends with you!

Savings of $1676.64 for us! Family of 5, 7 nights at POR!! Now that 2 of the kids are 'adults' for pricing, the savings are substantial. Without free dining, we wouldn't purchase the plan, as it is more than what we would need or typically eat, but when comparing apples to oranges, it is a bigger savings than a room discount coupled with how we would eat if paying OOP .... So excited to be able to take advantage of it!

Besides which, I've really enjoyed following this thread. Yes, I really have read all 78 pages and plan on keeping up with it even though we've alrdy gotten our FD discount. Is cool reading about everyone's success stories and hoping for those still waiting to see if/when their res dates will be eligible for discounts.
I've befriended you.

My reservation was for Pool View which is what I wanted and hoped to add the Free Dining offer to, but the CM just offered me Garden View or River View probably because they were the closest to my original choice. I definitely asked if Pool View was available and the CM said "No. The system will not give me that choice." Wondering if it was booked completely or not available under the Free Dining Offer. I am going to call back later, just to check. And will probably check back with WDW on Thursday to see if they make any of the Pool View available. But with only 30 Pool View rooms total at the POFQ wasn't very surprised that I would have to choose a different room type.

We have a family of 10, 7 of whom are now Disney Adults.
We're staying AsMo and upgrading dining.
Would have cost us another $2100+ if we had paid for dining.
Makes a HUGE difference for us.

I think I asked this before...

...but starting to get nervous with everyone booking... I have 2 standard rooms booked at POR with DD. Is there any chance that Free DD will be "sold out" at POR on Standard Rooms from Visa holders when I call Thursday?

Thank you again...

There's a chance, BUT...the normally release more rooms at some point. And, other "views" are normally available. Have a few back-up choices, and if you don't get your first choice, keep calling back (once a week or so). You never know!

AoA suites

Anyone book AoA suite yet?
Are they treating the AoA suites like a value? So you have to upgrade from quick service to regular?

If that makes you a loser, then I must be really bad!! I not only adjusted my whole routine, I came in to work 1 hour early and took my morning break as soon as I got here so I could be on the phone at 6:00 (Central Time!) But so glad I did. Saved $667 and now trip is booked and my Disney Reward Dollars that we saved will pay for the trip!!! Great way to start the week even if now I need about a gallon of coffee to keep going here at work!!
