I am working on with two rooms at value with Family and Friend discount instead of the free dining since will be basically the same price of the RR and we will be more comfortable with the extra bathroom. I am currently coordinating with my friend which offered me his discount. If I do the two rooms at value under the free dining plan is about 921 more than with the family and friend discount. So I am crossing fingers while I complete the booking.

ITA! Book it yourself, then cancel your reservation with your TA. When your refund comes just pay off the new reservation with that.

Need advise.

I had a res booked that I was hoping to just add the free dining.
I was on hold this AM for 90 minutes and had to go to work.

I ended up going online and booking basically the same res I had but with the free dining option. I have been on hold again now trying to Cancel my original res and again have been on hold for 1 hour 35 minutes so far. I only have about 10 more minutes before I have to go.

So I have 2 res at the exact same time. One with FD , one without.
Am I going to have a problem if I just call when Iget home tonight to cancel????

Can someone give me the alternate numbers to call again? I have looked back in the thread and couldn't find them. I keep getting disconnected from the 1407wdisney one.

Hopefully your travel agent will be able to get it for you, if not have you thought about booking yourself and canceling the one with the travel agent. We're staying at CSR as well and I was able to book a room there and it seems like they still have a lot of availability left. Good luck!

When I booked free dining for September, it took hours before I got my email.

After waiting on hold this morning for TWO HOURS, I gave up and hung up. I called right back, and after getting busy signals a few times, I got through and hit 0 a bunch of times and was with a CM within 5 minutes. Ridiculous!

But I was able to switch from my LM room to POP, get free QS dining, upgrade to Deluxe, and save us around $500. I also canceled our invisible friend for the dessert party since I was originally only able to book for 3 & not 2.

I'm exhausted.

Would we need to add him to the main reservation and just wait to upgrade our tickets when we get there to how many days we need (so we're not paying for more than he will need?).
You can do one of two things.

1) Add him to the reservation and drop all of your tickets down to the number of days he will need. Then you could have extra dining credits. You would just upgrade your other tickets at the park to the higher number of days.

2) Leave him off of the reservation and the day before he arrives you could go to the front desk and let them know he is coming. They will give him his own key on arrival day, and he could pay OOP for food.


Personally, option one would be my choice.

First time poster!

I had already previously booked from 10/4-10/11, hoping it would fall during free dining. Called back this morning to attempt to extend the stay by two days and arriving on 10/2.

I GOT IT!!

Probably took about 10 attempts on the phone to not get a busy signal. And luck must have really been with me because my wait time to get a human being on the other end was only about 6-8 minutes.

Staying at CRB in a preferred room, added two days to the ressie, as well as one day to the park pass. AND, took $600 off the total package!

Good luck to everyone else - hope your able to get exactly what you want!

I got FD Riverside for 10/26-11/2. I haven't seen many postings with those dates, so maybe that's why? It was still showing availability online too for that time. My CM did have to speak to guest relations and some other department too because my air was linked to my reservation. It took almost an hour on the phone in addition to over 2 hours on hold.
