The only reason I ask is because I thought I read somewhere that calling can get the CM into trouble.
Our CM friend ended up doing the booking himself and it only took a few mins. I ended up calling twice after that and ended up switching to Movies from Sports since I found out the remodel at the Sports food court is pretty extensive - no coffee or hot tea - I've had no issues calling after he booked. When I initially called I at least found out the resorts (or lack thereof ) available and with all due respect they don't ask the CM's name when you call so I don't see the harm in asking very general info. I'm relatively new with this so hopefully someone more seasoned can confirm!

You need the have the cast member call. They will not give info to you. Once the reservation is made, you can call as much as you want to make modifications. It really only takes a couple minutes for them to do it.

They won't (I should say shouldn't) price things for you since you are not the CM. Once the CM books you could call and check other resorts and pricing. Just calling to check CM stuff when you are not a CM? No. And I don't like suggesting trying since the phone CMs, if for some reason they don't follow the protocol and do quote you prices, can get in trouble.

You could always get a full price quote and do the math with the 40% to ballpark costs and make your decisions that way. Or email the CM with your options and they can email you back pricing.

The cm only has to call and book it for you right? They don't actually have to be there during check in with you right?

They don't need to be there at check in. They do have procedures they will need to follow.

I presently have a F&F 40% discount for Oct 31 - Nov 11. If I call to see if there is any additional discount for this time period for our resort (FW Cabins) does it matter which # I call since there are 2 on my confirmation and both seem to say to cancel or modify? And if I have already paid off the room will my card be credited or can I just leave the additional for room charges? TIA

I think you can call either number, but I can tell you that there are no discounts yet past 10/26/13. The Winter F&F are due out soon.

The cast member needs to show their ID 10 days before check in. This can be done in person or fax. The cast member can also be there at check in. I just did this for a friend this week at the WL. I am staying here as we'll, so I just went with her to check in.

I'm booked for early January. Will the Winter F&F cover our dates or will we have to wait until the next wave of (potential?) additional discounts?

I "think" it will go through February, so you should be good.

bump! Any offers posted past Oct 26? I'm looking to see if I can make my 40% go to 50% by adding DDP.

You should have the cast member check the HUB for you, or you can call yourself.
