What are your dates if you don't mind me asking? I am really surprised POR hardly has any FD slots. It's such a huge resort. I think we will see some rooms open up, esp with all of us cancelling and switching to other resorts.

The website is broken and keeps kicking me out of the FD offer to regular room rates, so frustrating.

I have received your email and am working on your requests. Please allow a full 24 hours for me to get back to you.
TAs have to call a dedicated number, so their wait times are really long. Some have been on hold for over 3 hours.

GRoannnnnn! I didn't WANT to add another day, just did to get the room and dining I wanted. I am new at staying onsite, can I change this from a 6 night to a 5 night stay online or do I have to call?

Hubby just called to see if we got free dining yet and I told him no..he proceeded to say if we don't get it then we're cancelling disney and we'll go somewhere that doesn't rip you off His only stipulation with this trip was free dining, so I knew there might be a chance that this trip would be a bust. He's not going to disney for himself...only for our dd. He'd rather be on the beach somewhere relaxing....oh, well, I'm going to start looking at different vacation ideas just incase...

So I haven't heard back from my TA yet on exact total saving but I can see in my Disney experience that he changed our reservations from POR to 2 rooms at pop. I had gave him our top 3 choices to work with this morning. I am disappointed that we can get POR it would have saved us another $1300 or so. But still happy we will be getting about $1800 in savings!! And I guess I will appreciate 2 bathrooms in October with 5 of us . So excited for our trip!! 61 days! We will be there 10-2--10-13!!

I got through immediately at 6am and still no email confirmation at 10:47am. I will worry until I see it in writing.

I just don't know what to do, I have paid my trip in full so I dont want to rebook again. It is just so frustrating. The Cm I talked to gave me the number to the Travel Agent Line. I keep trying to call it and it is busy. She said maybe they will let me change my reservation.

Helping someone to go against Disney policy is not allowed on this forum. The reason they have limits are about fire codes, not to make people pay more money or suffer.

That's why it's best to wait until deals are announced to book anything. Disney doesn't guarantee discounts. Hopefully your TA comes through for you, i'm crossing my fingers!

I would be afraid though that I would be found out and somehow be chastised for squeezing 5 people into a 4 person room. I wonder how many families do this on the DL.

I was just wondering how many people break that rule though, that's all. Sorry - I was not trying to imply otherwise.
