Help w/ booking question!!!:)

I called to update my reservation to free dining at Caribbean Beach stadard room and I'm told it's not available 10/26-11/3. It is still showing online and she says her system is different and that I should re-book online then call to have the money I have put down transferred to the new reservation. I'm on hold to try to get a different cast member now. She sounded very confused. Does this make sense?

It's happened before. I usually see CMs with more inventory than online, but what she told you to do is entirely possible and people do it all the time. You can transfer money from a package to a package... If your current res is a room only it won't transfer.

I'd verify free dining is applied to what you're looking at online. Lots of people were saying the special offers page was not applying it.

Does anyone else see the problem with someone BOOKING a room at a certain smaller resort in advance, hoping for Free Dining, and then complaining when FD isn't offered for that resort?
Hello...if the rooms are ALL BOOKED, then don't need to fill them. They already sold you a room WITHOUT a sale. They don't need to catch you...they already have you.
BUT...it is possible as people leave that resort for other resorts that do have free dining, and others cancel altogether, sometimes rooms open up.
At the most popular resorts, not always. But sometimes.

If you want the room even without the discount, go ahead, book it in advance.
If you'd rather have the discount...WAIT. Be flexible with your choices.
The less people book that resort in advance, the more availability there will be.

Sales are meant to get rid of items that are plentiful. Things that sell well don't need to be discounted.

Oh yippee!!! We just got FD for a good portion of our trip at CSR! We have a separate RO on 10/18, FD 10/19-10/25 - hoping to link the reservations so we can keep our room, then we switch to RO at POR for our last 2 nights!!! So excited, it works out well with our plans and we now get to try out CSR too!!! Keep trying, don't give up!!!

Good job! We'll be there around that time too - we are coming in on 10/16 so free dining didn't work out for us. Went with a room only discount and moved our reservation from POFQ to WL. Happy to get some kind of discount!

i'm not understanding the free dining value of it all,??? I plugged in my dates 12/16- 12/19,(when they are offering the FD plan) the min stay 2 days at parks/3 nights at resort,(because we only live a couple hrs away so are close enough to go a couple times a yr so just doing 2 days,anywho)

so for those dates,3nights at value resort,2 days at parks,2 adults,1 child, & dining should be free it's quoting me $1,333

so lets say (rounding up) tickets are 100 ea(x3) that's $300 ea day =$600(2 days) & rm is apprx $150 a night x3 nights = $450,that's a little over $1,000 & dining is suppose to be free, what am I missing,it 'seems' like i'm better off paying without the package LOL unless it's a late night blonde moment

You have to hit add to cart (or update if you already have something in your cart) and then click edit to change the default ticket selection. Before you hit edit, those dates show the price as $1364.74 with 4 day tickets at POP, but after you hit edit and change it to 2 day tickets it is only $1068.66.
