I was just so set on POR but I am thinking about just doing POP. It's just a place to stay, right?

AGGGHHHH! CM says that because I booked with air with my package she is showing no availability anywhere. She has me on hold again while she calls someone regarding the air portion and she said it could be up to another hour on hold! I've been at this for 3 hours already!!! I told her I see availability online. I could cry.

I too keep getting all circuits are busy and nothing working online. I was able at about 1:30 to get all but the last day of our trip booked at POR in a garden view. We wanted preferred but will take what we can get. I need to cancel our 2 rooms at POP and get a room only for the last nite. Saved us $1700 from the POP rooms...and those were also free dining (PIN) but with the upgrade. Best of luck to all on hold and trying to get switched or in!

POP is AWESOME. Plus, I'll be there. There is always a chance things will open up later. Get what you can and keep checking.

Two hours hold time total lead me to speaking with one of the nicest CM's I've ever spoken to. Unfortunately, no rooms available at the POR so I am disappointed as I was looking forward to staying there for the first time (you wouldn't think someone from New Orleans would want that as a first choice, but I was looking forward to exploring the resort and the POFQ side as well). We switched our reservation to CSR in a king standard with the Deluxe DDP and saved $600 off of our original reservation price. I have stayed at CSR once before and it is a very nice resort for those of you that may have never stayed there. I personally am not that crazy about the food court there, but there are many people who love it (I always use POP as my standard for food courts and nothing else ever seems to compare for me). It is a very big resort, but it's beautiful and tranquil. The Casitas area has a lot of gardens and fountains and I found it to be fairly quiet (compared to POP which is usually where we stay). For people who have kids and enjoy the swimming pool area in general, this resort probably has the best on site swimming pool of any of the resorts. Just wanted to give my thoughts as it seems to be the resort many have had to switch to in order to get FD. Finally, a huge shout out to Joe for coming through on this for everybody!! I don't post that often, but I do read the boards and I thought you were unnecessarily raked over the coals a little by a few people when the DV portion of the rumor didn't come to fruition!! I just wanted to say a big thank you for the heads up!!

Just got an email from my so called TA...she said "I know you are excited about possible discounts, and the boards can get everyone in quite a frenzy.

At this point, I am still working very hard at getting discounts.

I need to please ask for your patience right now. I will let you know as soon as I have more information.

Have a magical day! "

What information does she need???? I would hope that she is getting FD for people that already have their resorts booked!! Next time i will NOT go through a TA again...it will be done by myself. I'm assuming since I'm already booked and paid that my room will be there when we arrive on Nov 10th. I wouldn't think I would get knocked out of my room that I requested

I would like to also add that I already have the dining plan on my reservation so I would assume I can just get it switched over to FD...right?

After being on hold for 2 hours and being hung up on as soon as the CM picked up I am back on hold. It only took 30 tries to get back thru. I will say this though was not the same prompts as at 7 am. It is back to being the same as it was yesterday. I hope I get thru soon or my price will keep getting higher as my hubby is using the website to check availability almost non stop and finding other ideas. We are already spending more than we planed and what our total is at AoA Nemo because he wants a tower room at Contemporary.

Why did they even include POR in the offer if there was pretty much nothing available is what I would like to know. We have stayed at CB before and it is a beautiful resort, but we had our hearts set on POR. Makes me mad!! But just glad to get Free Dining at last, been waiting all summer.

You will have your room. She just means she'll get back to you with whatever she is able to get for you.
