It did go down but was back up and working about 12:15-20. We changed from POFQ to POR two rooms 11-1 to 11-8.

All morning I was checking and different ones showed avalibility at different times. This happens as many are booking multiple room and than releasing others. I just kept trying.

One Travel Agent reported a FIVE HOUR wait on the phone line.


Glad I'm going in Sept! LOL Also glad I didn't go with our original plan to go the week after Thanksgiving "They always offer free dining then." We'd have been out of luck!

Smile In there!

My very kind TA sat on hold for 3 hours today, but in the end got me FD for BC Nov 15-23, and it saved me $691! Weeeeeeeeee! We were booked and going no matter what, but that extra savings made my day! I was also quite happy that I wasn't the one that had to sit on the phone for 3 hours.

Things still must be crazy as I tried to make an ADR a bit ago, and the system just churns and then does nothing. I will let that go for now and try again tomorrow I think!

I think they are having issues with MDE today. I just looked and our dining plan is just gone...but I'm pretty sure it wasn't canceled! I'm hoping things will get back to normal tomorrow.

I went online at 5:15 this morning and made my reservation there for Nov 18-23. There was nothing avail for POR so I got CSR. I like CSR alot but was hoping for POP. Maybe later on they will release another block of rooms...I guess it wouldn't hurt to call every other week or so to check. The worse they can say is no, and I still have my room and free dining so it's all good

Earlier there was a family of 5 green view room at POR for oct 26-nov 1- don't know if that works for your dates, but thought I'd mention it!

Try calling the dining reservation number and have them transfer you to room reservations

Thank you so much for that suggestion!! I asked about ressies at BOG & then asked him to transfer me over to CRO, I was on hold for about 30 seconds & the phone was answered. I changed from POFQ to CBR w/ FD!
