My TA has been keeping me informed, but this is ridiculous. She has been waiting since 7:01AM on hold.

So do you really need to stay six nights for FD? I booked online for 4 nights last night. Just want to check before jumping in the queue!!!!

And speaking of multiple reservations- So we had our original reservation 11/10-11/16 because we were going regardless. Tried to get FD online when it went live (POR RR) last night/this morning and couldn't. So to be safe since DD REALLY wants POR, I booked our trip with a RO discount (We extended our dates 11/08-11/16.) I finagled the dates and got FD for at POR for 11/11-11/15. So I booked it as I didn't want to loose it. (SO yes, THREE different reservations.) So now I have to cancel the original, and modify the second to fill in the extra days we are missing.

To FURTHER complicate things, the rest of the family is thinking of jumping ship at POR in order to get FD to Coronado Springs or Carribean Beach. (I wonder if there are pirate rooms still available??!?) Of course, that is depending on the REAL minimum package requirement for FD.

This was no supposed to be that complicated!!! This is our third year for FD and it has never been this complicated!!
It should only be 3 nights. Good luck!

Looks like I'm going to have to switch resorts if I want a discount. Will figure this out by tonight--if anything is left!

My TA hasn't gotten through either. I told her to forget it for now and to try again for something else.

She would refund you what you paid, you are 45 days out.

If it says unavailable then your TA wont be able to get it either, sorry

Go on to plan B and BOOK IT YOURSELF.

I think royal rooms are still available if you are interested in those!

Had to have a RO for the 28th as well. A tad bit nervous about checking in/ Checking out and then back in to get our park tickets... Hopefully we will be able to stay in the same cabin as well!

You've had the roughest time of anyone I've seen on this board. After your heart attack (figuratively speaking) on Monday and now this, I hope you make it to the weekend.

Here's some pixi dust.

Nothing is showing up online at all. And the phone lines are too crazy.

If my TA can keep us at POR, that's great.
2nd choice (to be budget smart) is CBR
3rd choice (might as well upgrade, if we can't save money) is WL

I have no suggestions for other than to keep trying online...I think the website it toast right now...keeps showing me no availability for any time...but I just wanted to tell you how sorry I am for your frustration and hope it all works out in the end...even if you have to switch resorts like I did.

Wait. What!?! You are not talking about a literal heart attack, right?!? Do you just mean the no DV offer thing? Please say yes!
