Thanks. Thinking of double booking then transferring to my TA if I can, to guarantee I get a discount. I gave my TA the OK to call back later after she was on hold for far too long. My choice. Though perhaps not the best one. lol

You should seriously jump ship with this TA, have a new one do a 7 day hold. Get the money refunded to your card. Pay this trip off once it's refunded. I feel for you. This is ridic!

I got online just a few minutes shy of 6(central) this morning and was able to book Nov9-11 RO at Pop and then Nov11-16 FD at Pop- also called right at 6 and held about 35 minutes to cancel AsMo preferred that we had prev booked. Had everything taken care around 6:50 my time. Upgraded our dining and only had to pay $4.xx extra....I am one happy camper!!

Good luck to everyone still waiting!!

BTW, when I called I got the "technical difficulties" message that then went to music so I hung on!! My SIL had the same thing and after talking to TA for a bit was told to call back....she booked online (same timeframe as me).

First off- HUGE thanks to Joe and Dave for your persistance, and for providing such great info.

On a whim, decided to check online at 6:30 am (Eastern) while the kiddos were having breakfast. Like many others, was able to book a new reservation online in a few minutes, with FD!!!!!! Saved our family of 4 almost $1200!! Got the resort and dates we wanted. I too will be cancelling my original reservation, most likely this evening, once the madness dies down.

To all those still waiting- don't give up! I think there are MANY like me who will be cancelling in the next day or so, and Disney may adjust what is available.

After all, if the amount of rooms people booked with FD is close to the amount of rooms that get cancelled, their overall bookings won't have increased by much.

Good luck to everyone!

Obviously, I will cancel the original one -- but will a few hours (or even days) matter so I don't have to keep listening to the busy signals?
Same situation for me -- I need to cancel a RO booking since I got my FD res online last night.... I did try to call to cancel the extra room, but was told to try later-phones lines are busy! OP is thinking if the extra rooms are cancelled it will open more for new FD bookings. Maybe.....maybe not!

I like the way you think!!

OK, if there is anything worse than cheesy hold music, it's *static-filled* cheesy hold music.

Well, I just gave up my coveted 1 bedroom BLT to switch to BWV 1 bedroom to and saved $1460.

Please tell me I did the right thing! It will be my dh and 2 girls 5 and 9 yrs old.

BLT had NO availability for either promotion!

Travel Agents

I just want to point out to all of you who are recommending people fire their agent because they are not hearing from them, or never using that agent again, or whatever....

When you use a TA you are not their only client! Yes, I am sure you would like them to work on your account first, but that may not happen. And they are most likely running into the same problems that everyone else is - long waits on the phone and computer problems with Disney website.

I am not an agent, but have friends who are....they work hard for their money (don't we all!) and I am sure that 99percent of them are diligently trying to get exactly what you want for your perfect Disney vacation!

Please lighten up and give them a break!

Ok after 4 hours and 5 mins. I finally got my reservation at pop. I had to call in twice as the first time i waited 1 hr and 50 min only to get disconnected by cm. Then 1 hr and 30 min later the second cm got me all set! A lot of time but worth it
