If I upgrade to a suite for all of us and my dad cancels his reservation, does he get his $200 deposit back?

On that note, it would be 4 adults, 2 kids, and 1 baby. Since the baby is under 3, the 7 of us could all stay in one suite, correct?

TIA!
It is my understanding that you can make a change/cancelation 46 days or more out, without penalty and a refund of what has been paid.

And yes, you can do 6 plus a child under 3 in those totally cute AoA suites

Good luck with your decision!

Yes you can book a room only for the 17th and book a package beginning the 18th. Have them link your reservations. I've done this a few times and I've never had to change rooms although they always warn you it could happen.

I was so sure it'd be offered that week too. My heart just sank a little.

You can check out and back in anytime after 6am on the 18th to get your new room keys with your tickets and dining credits on them. If they need you to change rooms, you can have them store your luggage for you. Just make sure the reservations are linked, and they will try to keep you in the same room. I would just pack an overnight bag with everything your party needs for that first night. Then if you have to switch rooms, you won't have much to pack up. Picking up your tickets on the 17th will not give you access to your dining credits, so you may as well wait until you check in for the FD stay.

Thanks so much. Hopefully all this will work out and we can check in on the 18th before we hit the park! So excited!

I told DH we should wait to buy those!!
We're in the exact same boat!

Our dates are 9/28-10/5 (which I know we won't get FD for the first day)

The Visa offer should go live on the 29th if this deal follows the normal Monday/Thursday pattern.
Lol..... But thats not fair!!!!!! Darn F&W and Jersey week..... Maybe ill add the day to the end of the week and get there a day later..... Oh the headache on my ADR's!!!

Meanies taking over ...... Now I gotta do split ressies and all.. Blaaah!

I don't like it either! But if the jersey week people start their trip on 11/2, they can get FD for the whole trip. And the FD includes the Saturday before thanksgiving? I would speculate that this will be very popular for those that do the holiday week.

Just seems odd to offer FD starting on a monday, if they started NOV 9-10 that makes more sense and Jersey week is over then. No one checkin in at the end of jersey week......
I think its more to cut down/off the FD for weekend trips in for F&W. i have always thought that was an odd time to do F&W , always thought they should do that in October, don't ask me to explain why....

This makes sense, it's hard to wait though when you're trying to book ADR's 180 days out and are over-planners, like most DIS members.

Sorry for asking a repeated question, but......

If I change my reservation from 11/30-12/7 TO 12/15-12/21 so that I can get free dining, do I have to put down my deposits again? I have 3 rooms at Pop and have put down $600. Will that "roll over" to the new 3 rooms or will they refund that to me and I will have to put $600 on the new deposits?
Hope I am not confusing and thanks in advance for the answer.


Melissa

I'm so happy that we decided to book Nov 30 - Dec 7 with the FD pin. We were not planning on going this year, but with the way things are looking, FD could be on the way out.

I feel bad for those who couldn't get FD for the 1st week of December, but I can't help but wonder if that means the crowd level will be more ideal?

Congratulations on free dining, that is so awesome! Not sure if you've answered this before so sorry if asking again. How did you get free dining ... did you have a PIN code or receive pixy dust from a CM? My dates don't fall within the dates Joe has mentioned but would love to be able to receive free dining. We are celebrating our 25th anniversary plus my son and daughter's graduations so hoping for pixy dust coming our way!
