If you have an existing reservation at an eligible resort and you have already added a dinning plan, are you able to modify your reservation to take advantage of the free dining plan?

We considered AsMu suites or 2 rooms at POP, but I just felt it wasn't worth the money. We thought about staying offsite, too. Eventually we decided for as much as it costs now - going from POR to getting bumped out of that category - maybe we would just go every other year instead. If we change our minds, we'll stay offsite, but I don't think we will.

Still keeping our eyes open for future offers.... guess I'll have to obsess about something else for a while. By the time we get back, I have a better shot of my youngest being 40 inches though!
We are a family of 7. We did 2 Pop rooms. Why is it that you think "it wasn't worth the money"?

Keep trying! I got a standard POR room yesterday early evening for Nov 17-23. I guess its all about pushing the button at the right time....

Hi all, I've been reading this thread the last couple of days and I'd like to say thank you so much for all the info posted here, really
Aaaand, I got FD!! Calling from Spain was very confusing because for the first 6 hours the only thing I got was a busy signal but in the end I found a very nice CM and switched from AOA to POP (10/19 - 10/26).
Had to pay for a preferred room and increased price tickets but it was still really worth it.
I'm sure we will enjoy POP so much,

Thanks again!

Feeling a little psychotic - yesterday I booked pop for FD at 4:00 am (on top of my existing reservation for the same time) then on impulse I booked cbr for the same time frame at 8:00 am online. I was on hold for an hour yesterday afternoon - wanted to go ahead and cancel what I didn't want - kept the cbr resort reservation. We've only done quick service so I was excited about moving up to the regular dining... until I started to make reservations. I had no trouble getting reservations for what I wanted, but half-way through I started having buyer's remorse --- I hate the idea of having to be locked into being somewhere at a specific time everyday. Plus - last time we had free dining I left disney five pounds heavier. I'm going to call it pleasure island syndrome - we ate more desserts that week than we would eat in an entire year. I think they had two snacks per day then - am I remembering wrong?

I'm all better now though... i just booked the Biergarten - I don't care if the food is good or not, I love polka music!!

I just want to say that they DEFINITELY have released more rooms for FD....whether it's due to holds being unheld or what, I don't know. I worked ALL DAY yesterday trying to find an alternative to AoA for a client for a week in and NOTHING was coming up in the Mods, NOTHING. Nothing in POP either. Both online and when I called to confirm. Now I login this morning, and all are available!!

Hey must be the Aussie season, I went online yesterday 1.00 am US time and just made another booking. We're doing POFQ with room discount for 3 nights then on the 12th Dec switching over to WL with FD. I now have two bookings but once the phone lines calm down I will cancel our original one.

She got me Nov 10 as room only with discount...183.00 and FD the 11 - 17. A whopping big savings of $1025.00!! Now holding on to hope that disney will let us stay in the same room when we check out on the 11th and check back in....
And we had a chat...I explained my frustration and she knew all about it and said it was fine...that she had hundreds of clients that she was busy with and she apologized for the lack of communications.
Congratulations. I'm glad you were able to get what you wanted.

My MDE updated instantly yesterday, however you do have to look at the old site to see the dining, but have not received an email confirmation yet. I'm going to call if I haven't receive it by noon. I booked at 9am yesterday so that gives them more then 24 hrs to send it. You can also tell if its been applied if you still have a balance owing, it would reflect the amount the CM would've told you on the phone.

Quick! What should I do!!!! Yesterday I was going to switch resorts to CBR Pirate room to get FD, about an hour later my TA emailed me to tell me there was no avail at POR for FD or RO for preferred rooms. I had already emailed her to switch to CBR. When she emailed FD was gone at CBR, but RO was still avail. I asked her to please try and get RO, it was avail at 8pm. She emailed me at 9pm and said she couldn't get it. I am online now and they are avail. Should I book these myself and just cancel my reservation through the TA? I know I will probably lose my dining reservations, I'm guessing probably the PL reservation I have. Will she also return my MNSSHP tickets and I'll have to repurchase? TIA! The only thing I'm really nervous about is losing the PL reservation, cause it was hard to get an appt 180 days out!

Well over six hours on hold yesterday, and yet here I am at 7 am, in the same exact spot, listening to the same exact music. It's like that scene in Groundhog Day...

(On a lighter note, I think the trolley song and the bug version of Beauty and the Beast were the low points of the hold music loop.)

Hopefully you'll get through faster today. I just called to check on availability at POR (still none) and got through with no wait at all

I booked online and had both within a few minutes. It looks like some people here who booked over the phone did not get confirmations yet. So many posts, it's hard to keep track!
