I have to say, however, it is her JOB. She should be up early Monday morning looking into it for you.
I dont know about all TA's but I know AAA you can move an existing reservation over to them to get their perks. But yes, just like all PP's have said, its her job to be looking out for you! Id call her back and say if she isnt able to call first thing monday, you will find someone who can! She better be offering you some awesome perks, or youre better off firing her and doing your own thing anyway!!

I can tell you...that for the reservation to be transferred from one agency to another....Disney and agencies frown on this. If you are unsatisfied with your agent, you can talk with the agency and possibly get another agent or you would have to cancel the reservation. IT CAN HAPPEN though, you just need the current agency to agree to transfer the reservation to another agency.

I would like to book a FD trip on Monday.

However, I have a work thing Monday morning so I cannot call and be on hold for a long time, but I could sneak online to book it.

Will I be able to book this online on Monday and if so, how will I know what code to use or how to get the DV FD discount?

I'm really hoping to get POFQ for Dec. 21 and staying 14 nights and I know that will be hard, but our back up would be CSR.

So I sat my mom down this morning to show her POFQ and then showed her a bunch of options at POR that we might have to "settle" for if I couldn't get FQ and she totally poopahed FQ and wants to do the Mansions at POR.

I thought she'd prefer the smaller resort and the French Quarter atmosphere but she liked the river and the greenery better at Riverside. She did like AB's buildings and landscaping, but did not like the rooms themselves (I think the beds made out of logs gave her flashbacks to my childhood when all we could afford for vacation was camping). So we will ask for hope for a Royal Room Pool view (for location) or for a Royal standard view or River View or just a category River View and request Magnolia.

She kept telling me whatever I wanted and she was just along for the ride but I totally know better. There was no way I was not going to get some input. I'm actually fine with the change.

1. I don't feel the pressure of getting FQ which I know is hard.
2. I have said before that on my next solo trip that I was considering POR because I liked the look.
3. I want her to enjoy the MOD experience since she really prefers the idea of Deluxe and really dislikes Values (and she is tagging along on my Jan trip and it is ASMu at the moment), so any excitement about a Mod is great.

She is also excited about FD and wants to be there with me at 6am when I do the call in to try to get it.

Can't wait till Monday so that everything will finally be more concrete and I can finalize my dining/rental car/touring plans.

To figure the price of the free dining discount package on value and moderate rooms, so I can compare before Monday, do I just price a vacation without dining plan for moderate and that would be my price, and for value do the same except add $19 per adult and $4 per child to upgrade the dining plan?

That's pretty much it.

Our TA moved our package reservation, I made new Nov ADR's but held on to the sept ones for about a week just in case. Our Sept package had already been moved to Nov, and I still had to call and cancel the sept Adrs anyway.
ADRs are not tied to a Resort reservations unless you use the 180day + 10 to make them. I actually made all my ADRs before I had a resort reservation. I did have to pay in full for CRT. Now we have FD and I am afraid to have a CM change the CRT ADR to use our Dining Plan as I have read that if they don't do it correctly you might end up with no ADR! Not going to risk it as the 4 girls in our party have never been and I was at my computer at 6AM 180 days out to make sure I got it.

If I downgraded from CBR to POP, and paid the upgrade of dining plan.....the difference between the value and mod is only $25.21 savings....not enough incentive to move, in our case

That's why I moved up to a mod as well.

Unfortunately, no. Your check in date has to fall within the time FD is offered. And since it doesn't start until the 12th, and that's when your checking out, you won't get it

No. Your check in date must fall inside the promotion dates. With free dining, nothing else matters except the check in date. If you check in the last day of the promotion, you would still get it for your entire stay of up to 14 days. However if you check in even one day before the promotional dates, you don't get it for any of your stay.

And maybe tell her that if she is on hold for more than 30 mins (just a random #) then to hang up and try again later in the day. In May, my TA had me booked at 7:19 am. Good Luck!
That's a good suggestion, thanks.

I'm not going to "fire" her if she doesn't, however. She we are also friendly acquaintances and have mutual friends. Plus she got me all my ADR choices, including BOG.
