I was told we couldn't. I'm so bummed. Then I called back and tried to talk to someone else, who was much more helpful and she was able to give me 300 or so dollars off our room. But no free dining. Does this sound right?

We booked this so long ago, I can't believe its 2 months away now.

dates are 10/15 to 10/22. We planned on getting there the 15th and not going to the park. On the 22nd we plan on just hanging by the pool and not going to the park either. So a 5 day hopper was what we are planning
Ok, I haven't done a split stay myself so someone else can verify. I think you could do the Room Discount for 10/15-10/17, check back in 10/18-10/22 for the free dining. You would need to make sure the 10/18-10/22 had at least 3 days of tickets to be eligible.

Alright, and here's what I think the "problem" is. All Star Music suites had very limited availability for the FD...so it's probable that there isn't a FD room available for you there. So that's probably why they are telling you no. And AOA of course is not eligible either. So if you're a large family, I'm not sure where else you could stay, maybe connecting rooms? Maybe somebody else could suggest what you could do about a different resort. But I have a feeling it will be more expensive.

Hope that helps.

I've never ridden that ride. There was a 2hr wait with no FP left last year. I can't wait to go on it this year.

Thanks for the ride ! This will be my 6th trip to Disney, and I never rode this. I am a huge chicken! I am scared of heights and hate the drop in my stomach that I anticipate at the end. With that said, I really, really want to try this ride this time. How bad is the drop at the end....remember it's Chicken Little you're talking to

I remember one summer waiting well over 2 hours to ride it! The line was out to the bridge where you can watch the splash down, and every single curve of the line was open.
We loved it so much, we even named our dog Zipper - as in zip-a-dee-do-dah!

It's not bad, and there are other small drops through the ride, as you can tell it's quite long.

so oh guru's of WDW packages....

is there any disadvantage of paying off early?


My payoff date is at an inconvenient time and frankly I have the money to pay it in full right now so am thinking that I should just do it and get it over with.

I can find some cheaper deals by doing pickup/drop at MCO and using magic express, but that seems like a pain. Just 10/7-10/9. Ideas smart planners???
Anyway you can pick up at the airport to go with a cheaper company? You are probably going to get dinged with a return fee if you pick up at park and return at airport too.

Anything! I'm enjoying the splash mountain one right now because I know I won't get to go on it during my trip.

We were cramped for time so waiting for 2 hrs wasn't an option plus it was about a half hr before Wishes started. Had to see that!

It might indeed be correct that there is no free dining, the discount is probably for Fall Room Discount so getting 300 off would not be out of line. I think that it's probably the Columbus day Holiday (14th) that is blacking out your dates for free dining even later that week. A lot of people will start their vacations on CD and then continue that week and may be doing splits and taking up FD rooms.
