That's ok I'm on the west coast so by the time I get to work it will already be noon east coast time

I to am on the west coast (also in Canada). So it's not worth it setting my alarm for a 3:45 am wake up call on August 1 then? Here I was getting all psyched to get up and get in right at 7am EST. If it looks like I can sleep in a couple more hours I'll take it. I just don't want to loose out on upgrading my CSR reservations to FD .

Ok, if I'm reading this right...you're wanting to change your reservation at CSR to add FD. You quoted someone talking about how the FD info takes hours later to show on the website from when it actually starts at 7am EST. If you wait to call (since you have a reservation) after the offer goes live at 7am, you're risking no availability with your room type. Unlikely, but still a risk I wouldn't take it you have your heart set on a certain resort or room type etc. Anyone waiting to book online is also taking that risk. Personally, I'd get up and call..and I am actually going into work later because I want to be sure I can stay at my already booked resort. Or at least have the best chance I can anyways by calling first thing. I'm already at a disadvantage where I don't have a Disney Visa, so I have to wait till Aug 1st.

Thank you! That's kinda what I was thinking. It makes sense. Better safe than sorry. I just wasn't 100% sure what was meant when it was mentioned that the deal takes hours to show up. Thought that meant that even though the phones open at 7am EST that the FD deal wouldn't be available right at 7am through the phone. Looks like the early wake up alarm will be set Also being from Canada we don't get even the opportunity to apply for the Disney Visa card I know that would definitely make a lot of us up North here very happy (anyone from Disney listening? )

Hi dizzyr, I wish we could cancel room reservations online, but currently we can't. You can cancel a dining reservation online, just not a room reservation or package - for those you have to call.

No details on RO yet, but looking good for FD.

Looks like I will change my ressies from Nov. 26th, to checking in on Nov. 23 through Nov. 30th so we can get FD... Does that sound like a plan to you all, am I correct that those dates would qualify for FD?? We are driving down, so changing dates are ok with us.

Yes, if the FD offer dates are what they have been rumored to be when the offer is officially released, then your check in date of Nov 23 would qualify you for the FD discount for the length of your stay (up to 14 days). As has been mentioned before, it's a good idea to have a back up resort/room category in mind in case the one you want has already sold out for the FD offer. If you call in early on the 1st day of the offer, you can sometimes get a CM who is not up to date on the available offers and will tell you there is no FD offer. Don't take that 'no' for an answer. Ask them to check again, ask their supervisor, whatever so you don't have to call back and wait in the telephone queue again. Good luck!!

So excited! We are going Nov14-24 and planning on POR, but I'll switch to whatever resort I need to in order to get FD!

Nothing official, but yes, you should be able to call Monday. That is the typical way offers are released.

Since we are less than one week from the 29th, when do you think 'they' will announce the FD extension? Thanks!

Do all your travel dates have to fall within the free dining or just a couple?? Of course my travel dates would fall in between the dates of free dining!!!
Thanks for your help
