Even if there is a leak, it is never 100% guaranteed, so we are all on here first thing on the rumored opening day, just to make sure it is for real. : )

I was one of the lucky ones who had FD offered to me for Oct without a PIN but I would have had to switch resorts and that is no bueno. So I need my second chance!! Ahhhh, going crazy!!!

Yeah, I don't NEED FD it would just really help! It's so very important to me to stay at POR. I'd be highly disappointed if I didn't. Besides I didn't even know about FD before Dis (which was after I booked my trip). If be more disappointed with not being at POR than I would if I didn't get FD.

So...I too am dying waiting for "The News". . For a family of four, 2 kids, 2 adults, how much will I actually save? We are booked for 8 nights. Just curious. I remember once before that the savings were not exactly equal to the daily costs per person. Is there some weird way they calculate this?

We were originally booked at POFQ and than we dropped to POP. The only reason we did moderate was because of the queen beds. We saved $600 dropping to a value with double beds. I just need somewhere to shower and sleep. The bed size won't affect that after a long day at the parks. Plus POP has a much better Disney feel to it. We had the DDP too originally and I dropped it to QSDP to save more money olus i dont want to plan dining. I never received any notification for FD but I called and got it, so that was even more savings. We were hoping when we originally booked that we'd get FD and I'm soooo glad we did.

Depends on the ages of the kids, are they under 10 or Disney Juniors? If 10+ then they are considered adults.

The savings are realized in how much you spend on food.

I wish as a family of 5 we could do a value resort besides a family suite such as Pop. It's less expensive to do POR than a family suite and even though the extra room in a suite is nice I will save the dough and just stay at POR. Last time we stayed there it was beyond hot (June 2011) and our walk from buses to room were so long. Hoping this time to have a shorter walk and temps will be better in Oct. My point is I totally get staying somewhere to save money lol.

Thanks, y'all!!!

It's good to have ppl "in the know" like you awesome disboarders!

When I called last week to check on the fridge situation (b/c DS needs milk!), the CM said they were already ordered and SHOULD be good to go by Nov. She said, "When you call back, because you will...You never know what discounts will come up or..uh..when you make a payment, you can check on their status again and then again closer to the date." I said I hope FD comes about again b/c it would really help make our trip magical. On that call I realized we are going one year to the day of DS's Wish Trip! We are celebrating his bday & mine while there.

I just had déjà vu so if I said all this before, forgive me. :-)
