So if I booked before the ticket price hike, but call to add a free dining or room only discount without changing any other aspect of the reservation (resort, room type, dates, number of guests, etc.), will I end up paying the higher ticket price?

There's some great info and pics of room locations at POP over on the POP resort thread. http://www.disboards.com/showthread....&highlight=pop Go to post #2 in the thread and click on the "Refer to Pop Century 2012 Map" link for a pic of the room type locations for each building. If that's not clear, try asking on that thread. Someone there will know for sure.
That is great advice! Thanks! I was asking because a CM told me I had to pay an up charge for preferred view, effectively not saving me any money, to get the lakeview in the 60s building. I didn't think that sounded right, but I haven't done extensive research.

I would love to NOT have that discount and get free dining instead, but I fear that if they do make it a GP offer, that it will actually end on 11/21 or 11/22, as that Saturday, 11/23, is so close to Thanksgiving. Thoughts?
I keep wondering the same thing. Last year the free dining ended the Thursday before Thanksgiving. I even received a RO pin that ended on the thursday before Thanksgiving. It went unused though because my husband didn't want to leave until the Sunday before Thanksgiving.

This year it is actually possible to move our Monday arrival back to Saturday if free dining is available.

Yes adding free dining will increase the ticket price.

There are no tickets with room only. If you have not bought your tickets yet, you will pay the higher price.

Yes. ANY change made, adding a discount, free dining, or whatever will change the price. My cousins were able to get a discount last year and called ot have it applied and their ticket price went up, but they still save about $50 each even after the price hike.
I had gotten 7 day hoppers, but then decided I really only needed 6 and i called to see the price difference. It was going to cost me MORE to take that 1 day off with the new price of tickets so I just left it.

Ok quick question. It keeps being mentioned that there are no rooms available for FD at any value, what if you are already booked? For instance, we are already booked at POP for Nov 17-23 & have been since January, if we get FD does that mean we won't be able to use it with our existing reservation?

If it goes public, more rooms will be released. Having a reservation at rack rate means nothing when adding a discount. What matters is whether they have used the allotted number of rooms at that resort. So if they had 99 rooms at Pop available for free dining and you are the 100th person booking one. You are out of luck. You can change to a resort where there is availability though, and you would still keep your existing reservation. They would just make the adjustments.

Ok that makes sense. Lets just hope that if it is released to the GP that I'm not working an early shift so I can call right away. My DD will not be happy if we have to switch resorts. However though it might be better to switch as I will be paying the difference to get DP as it is only QS at values. Thanks for answering my question.

We are just referring to the free dining PINs. Disney only allots so many resorts/rooms available for this promotion and many have been filled. BUT, never fear, just like Disneyfan said, it free dining is opened to GP, there will be a fresh batch of rooms for the takin', Yea!!!! Calling as soon as the promotion is released will help ensure the odds of keeping/getting the room/resort of your choice. When there is news, it will be the talk of the town on here.

Okay, so I bought everything as a package (tickets/room/dining) then took off dining because we changed our mind... So, if a RO dsct comes available and I am able to apply it, my tickets prices will go up? That is what I am thinking you guys are saying.

Does anyone know by how much?

Thanks!!!

You are correct, and I believe it was a 3% increase.

My TA said that if your package was booked before the increase they will honor the price even if you make changes but it has to be done through a supervisor at Disney. I had asked about possible changes to our package and that is what I was told. She said last year the price went up no matter what but this year they are honoring the price at time of booking for the tickets.
