Poly was our back up, but nothing was available there with any discount. Hoping some rooms get added to the FD or RO block and we can change. We ended up booking at AKL, which is great, but we would rather have more than just bus options for transportation if we are paying for deluxe.

So, I should just give up right? I've been holding for over two hours, mostly at this point because I'm curious to see if anyone will ever pick up. But anyway, we already have a reservation, at ASMo, fully paid. FD would just be a bonus for us. I'm happy to switch to ASMu or Pop, but not if it's going to cost more than $100, because I don't think that FD will save us much more than $150-$180 because of the way we eat and the length of our stay. QS dining gets each adult one QS meal & one snack per day, right? So over five days it would save us roughly $25-$35 a day? This is just not worth me continuing to hold is it.

Zero availability at POR during a very slow week is a sham. After 2 hours on hold I then spent an hour with a cast member who must have been new.

I ended up switching to a deluxe, but am considering cancelling the trip. With a family of 5 they make it too hard to find a hotel at a fair price.

I can't help but wonder if they only released a limited of number of rooms today. Do you think that is possible? If you try back tomorrow or the next day or next week will there suddenly be more availability? Like there were "cancellations"?

Same here! I just love the relaxed theme and beautiful music around the whole resort. I just love it there!

This year we are trying AKL. It's my kids first time (4 and 2) and we really wanted the SV rooms. Worried about the travel time though to the other parks from AKL. Can anyone provide feedback on this who has done AKL with little ones? Is the longer bus ride a nightmare? Especially if you need mid-day breaks?

I'm getting no where on the website

It keeps flicking me to the check availability screen.
I think we've toasted the phone lines and the website. I'm going to try again later. Being as we want to go Dec. 19, I'm not convinced we will have availability in a basic room in a mod resort anyway.

On hold for 2 hours, but saved 1,000 on our reservation at Pop. Really wanted RR, but will keep looking to see if anything opens.

quick service is 2 counter service meals and 1 snack per person per night.

Is there a way to book three rooms online together? I have an existing reservation but can't get through on the phone lines and was thinking about booking online and then canceling my existing reservation later?

You will have to book them individually and then call to have them linked.

I thought about that, but when I look online nothing is available for my time for CSR
