Glad it wasn't just me. I was thinking that my coffee needed to be stronger as I clearly was missing something.....

I think Disney doesn't realize that if they give me a pin, I will add on one day of upgrading my QS FD for 10 people, and pay rack rate for three rooms for that night...which cost me more than what I'm paying for the discounted one night of RO. I guess they don't want more money for that night.


Now that I know they make notations...I'm wondering what will happen if I call back???

Thank you so much for the kind words.

I was given a private fax number and a name to put on the cover sheet (first and last name). My husband said let me deal with this nonsense (as he called it) and his call was escalated to an upper manager. We DID NOT have a pin to our names, BUT before our call ended, we WERE GIVEN free dining for our October trip with the emailed confirmation that it was added to our reservation.

I don't work for the Walt Disney Funtime ConglomerCo. but I have a hard time believing that the number crunchers and managers who make decisions about occupancy levels run those decisions by the CMs on the phone first. The bus drivers obviously, but not the CMs.

Thus the reason behind her "expert" and "sarcasm" comments.

For the record, no one in this thread is an expert, and no one claims to be. My sole purpose on this site is to help people and pass the time until my trip comes around. There is absolutely nothing wrong with some good natured humor, nor providing CORRECT info about phone CMs not necessarily being aware of the next release. Many times, they don't even know about a current release.

I was never trying to be sarcastic. But only to point out how inaccurate the call center is in giving information. Nearly every time I call to book free dining I am told there is no such thing and have to wait while they find info. Some even have admitted to getting their info right here on the dis. You see so many things said by CMs that it really confuses some people.

Again it wasn't meant to be sarcastic at all.

I think everyone (except her) knows that you meant no harm. Hopefully she reads this, so she will know, too.

Disney World has so many phone numbers. Which is the best one to call to check on a PIN?

Anyway, I don't think you should give up calling if you don't have a pin yet!
Yea! Yea! Yea! Sooo happy you got one! Keep trying you all, ya never know...

I called and left them a message and they called me back this morning, she said she was emailing me an updated confirmation... She said your old total was $**** and your new total is $**** but didn't say what the pin was for and I was to excited and didn't ask. Anyway I checked online to see my new confirmation and it was for free dining!!! So my Sept 29th-Oct 5th Trip is covered by free dining.
OMGosh!!!!! All this good news calls for a party!! Congrats!!!
