You're mom is too funny At least you're on the east coast, I'm central time zone so an hour earlier for me. Bummer for the west coast folks.

Is your reservation discounted? If so, you would lose that discount and pay rack rate for the room, plus tickets. If you're already paying rack rate, then your rate wouldn't change, but you're looking at around $58 and a few cents per person per day for adults for the regular dining plan.

Where are you staying? Are you getting a room discount at the moment? You can also just do a test booking online for your dates, just select room and tickets (park hopper and however you want it set up) but leave dining off...that would be your price for free dining.

Our current package is room, Reg DP, and tickets. No discounts that I know of.

You will just pay OOP for your meals those couple of days. This would come with the possibility of having to change rooms, but if you link the two reservation together, you have a great chance of staying in the same room. Pack a bag for the first two nights instead of packing everything for the whole trip in the same bag. This will help save you time if you have to switch rooms. Good luck!
Be careful with this. I have seen other posts on this exact same subject and there were a few people saying they weren't able to pick up their park tickets early. Others say you definitely can if you know where/how to do it. I wanted to do the same thing in October '11 and the cm said I couldn't pick up tickets early...which I have read is a pretty common response but not exactly 100% true.

Ugh sorry phone is acting up. We have reservations for Pop, reg dining plan, and tickets.

I was going to run it on the WDW website but room prices have gone up and not sure how that factors. And since Pop only gets QS was looking at POR.

Assuming you booked this a few weeks ago before the price increase, subtract around $55 a night per adult and around $17 per night for children and that should give you a rough estimate.

I am currently booked POR royal room and changing this is not an option for our family. So, my question is would it be worth it to get the Disney Visa in order to get to book FD at POR in advance? How far in advance of gp would i get to book? Is it very unlikely there will be FD at POR left on Aug 1st? I don't really want to open a card but I will if it seems necessary to get FD at my choice of resort.

Thank you SO much! I've been in tears all afternoon because we've had to cancel our trip for September. Booking now for November and will call first day it's released to public! Got the exact same ADR's almost down to the minute!

Phone CMs always say it cannot be done, but it is currently still a valid option. The info can be found in the ticket sticky at the top of the Theme Parks Attractions and Strategies forum. The author of the sticky is a current WDW ticketing CM and he keeps the info current.

Where will the booking codes be released to take advantage of this offer on Aug 1st?

2 years ago I tried to apply a new offer to my reservation and didn't know the "code" and the CM on the phone was unable to tell me the code--I ended up rebooking on line and cancelling my original reservation. I don't want to do that this year because I've already paid a lot of it with gift cards which take forever to add to the account!

I wonder if you can check in really really early though. We will check in with a room only for one night, the next day will start our FDing reservations but we need our tickets that morning for a breakfast in a park at 8. We could add 1 days worth of tickets to the room reservation but then we kind of lose the discounted tickets from adding days on to the FDing reservations.

Another DIS poster said it would be fine to check in at 6am to get our tickets from the next package....we've never done that before.

You can check in to your resort as early as 6am (possibly 4am if the computers have rolled over by then). In order to do early ticket pickup, you cannot pick up tickets the day your package starts without getting them from the resort. Why would you need to add the extra ticket day? You can go to DTD guest relations the day before your package starts and get your tickets. The tickets don't have to be any longer than what you actually need.
