So I'm confused. Have these new dates been confirmed? (Specifically dec 12)


If so we will be able to take advantage of FD with a split stay I had given up hope since the pin dates excluded Pop Warner week. Now to calculate if FD is a better deal for us.

Ok folks, new thread going so we can start fresh.

Things will likely pick up fast once bookings begin.

We are trying to decide which way to go for our October trip....book with our AP discount (we usually stay at value resorts, so not much of a discount) or book the room no discount, pay for the 2day tickets (to give to grandkids on a later trip) and get free dining. I guess I will just have to run the numbers and see what makes sense. Anyone else already done that and care to share the results?

Bummer on the dates. We got a pin code for ours the 1st week of Dec but our family that we wanted to go with us didn't and now they probably won't get to come.

So sorry! Are you already using 3 rooms??? If they are going the same time, you can book up to 3 rooms with your PIN. Just FYI- I know there can be other circumstances that make things more difficult. Good luck!!

I was just going to say that. You can book the a room under with your PIN if they are traveling with you.

Us too ....I guess we'll attempt a split stay with room only the first night since we don't do parks that day anyway....and then Dining package starting on the 29th. I just pray they don't make us change rooms.

Any idea on if room discounts will have the same dates as FD? I think that would be a better deal for us (2 rooms at Yacht Club end of Oct/ beginning of Nov).

They weren't going to stay as long as us.

As usual, certain room types are excluded, such as campsites at Ft. Wilderness, 3-bedroom villas, and the Little Mermaid rooms at Art of Animation. A 3 night minimum stay (14 night maximum) and two day minimum park ticket is required for each person in the party.

These sources are quite good, and the same ones I got the September Free Dining, as well as the August-September Room Only Discounts that nobody else on the Dis even mentioned (and brought lots of relief to many late-August travelers as well).

Good vibes everyone!!!
THANK YOU JOE!! Now I just hope there are rooms available for our stay at POFQ

This was awesome to get this news 6 days BEFORE my birthday AND 2 days BEFORE we leave for Disneyland...now we just gotta get to paying Decembers trip off once we get back from this one...

It shouldn't matter. The trips don't have to be the same length. They just need to overlap and be at the same resort.

I'm not positive, but I think you could still do that as their stay will be while you are there, too. Would certainly be worth a call to check. Good luck!

Yes this is correct, i just called. CM also stated PIN's are out for these dates but my Mickey Mailbox did not yet have a PIN. (So what else is new) They stated that they would split the ressie into two separate stays. Stay one would be a normal (rack rate) or room discount rate, for the days you stay before the FD dates. They second ressie would start at the FD dates and last through the rest of the trip. That puts most of our trip in the FD stay, and since its a Deluxe you get DDP and we never use all our credits unless we do room service or a bunch of double credit ressies..... Wonder if anyone has done this before...... CM stated we might have to change rooms .... Or even resorts

I have seen several posts from people that have done split stays like that.

If you link the two reservations, you have a strong chance of staying in the same room. I doubt you would have to change resorts, but some people choose to stay in two separate resorts to experience more than one on a single trip. I would pack a separate suitcase and put everything in it that all of you need for the first part of the stay. That way, if you need to change rooms, you haven't unpacked much and the move will go faster.
