Reservation #1 - Free Dining Package
Check In Oct 19 / Check Out Oct 24
5 Day PH Tickets - will use 3 days of the ticket under this reservation

Reservation #2 - non-discounted Room Only
Check In Oct 24 / Check Out Oct 26

Questions:

I assume I will need to go to the Front Desk and checkin/checkout on Oct 24?

How will the 5 Day PH Tickets be handled? I think I have 14 days from initial use to use all 5 days. Correct? Will Disney link the remaining 2 days to my Reservation #2 when I do checkin/checkout on Oct 24?

Since checkout for FD is Oct 24 do I have until 11:59pm on that day to use my dining credits?

How would the RFID refillable mug work? For my entire visit? And what are the logisitics for that??

THANKS!!
Why 2 reservations? I'm going Oct.18-26 and have 1 reservation...with FD. You do not need 2 reservations! Your entire stay qualifies for FD

One happy DH!!!!!

Yep my DH is ecstatic. NONE of my choices were available and I had 4 plans. We are booked into a Lake view tower room at Contemporary. Our total is only $460 more than it was at AoA in Nemo paying for the DP. With the family of 5 I think that's not to bad. He wanted the Monorail because he hates buses. He said once I get there I won't care that we spent more than I wanted to. But little does he know I really wanted that as well. But I get points because he thinks I let him win this one.

What is Disney's cancellation policy? If I book by myself online, will they refund the deposit if cancelled? Is there a fee? I couldn't tell on their site.

The website showed no availability at AKL, but I got it on the phone. Don't go by the website. Definitely call.

I feel so bad for you and am praying that it will all work out VERY SOON! You have been very encouraging to others and you deserve some relief! Hugs to you too!

Quote: I am having the issue. My third kid is only 4 and that is what I was thinking to do. Actually, I booked that way at RR since for 5 in a deluxe or Suite is about 2,000 more. I will bring an air mattress. Anyone did this in the past and any feedback?


Hi, I am new, but have been lurking for the past week trying to learn the ins and out of the World! We have traveled to DLR many times, but have not attempted to do Disney World with our bunch. I was amazed how different everything is!!
If it was not for this thread, I would be offsite. It is because of FD that I can stay onsite.

In reference to leaving a kiddo off of your reservation, I also considered this. My littlest one is 3, and still prefers to sleep in a crib. What I was told was that if you leave off members of your party, 1- it violates fire code, and 2 - they would not be able to ride the Disney Magical Express shuttle because they count the names and number of your reservation.

So, we booked 2 rooms at POP, and got the FD. I can't say how excited I am!!

I am sooo glad I saw it post on the website last night and booked then. I am crossing my fingers for all of you on hold and waiting for your reservations to come though!

As long as you cancel at least 45 days out, you get a full refund, unless you bought trip insurance. Trip insurance is nonrefundable. I sure hope everyone double booking knows that!

I got a room for 5 arriving 11/7. I wanted arriving 11/16 but had nothing. I don't think rooms for 5 were even available for certain weeks because I booked online in the wee hours of the morning.
