It won't mess up my dining reservations will it?

Bella, I am actually looking into this exact same thing. I never ever booked outside of disney EVER (lol i sound like taylor swift) and Travelocity has the better deal for room only. Have u done this before and if so have u had any problems booking thru Travelocity ?

They will stay the same, but if you booked any prepay meals using a dining plan, you will be charged for them if you cancel your Disney reservation.

71 days, I just set it up a week ago. The kids were excited to see anything related to the trip and their Disney lanyards that I ordered for them came today too.

When I did this, the CM said that your dining will not be cancelled if you cancel your resort reservation.

That's still cool!! Do I need to do anything to get my magical express packet? I booked package and air with Disney, so haven't had to do anything else. I don't have to order them do I? Sorry, first time without TA.

I booked my air separately and manually reserved the ME, that's probably why we got ours already. I am sure you are all set. When I sign into MDE right below the resort in My Reservations I see:

Just in case someone has thought about this, maybe the 15% will help.

Doing it right now....saving $409! Finally snagged a discount (our days at POR were also blacked out of FD so couldn not get a discount through Disney). THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!

After reading posts about high airfare I decided to check it out. I bought our tickets 2 mos ago for $868 roundtrip for 5 people, plus 3 checked bags and seat assignment both to and from with SPirit airlines. I just checked for the same exact flight it is now $1348.00. I am sooo glad I bought our tickets when I did!
On another note, I also bought our MNSSHP tickets the same day for Oct 31. I was worried it would sell out, with all the previous information I had read. However as of today it is still not sold out. Is that normal or will we be super lucky and experience low crowds.

I have only booked hotel only with Travelocity for Disney. I have booked other trips with no issue. I did later cancel very easily with Travelocity after my dates opened back up at Disney. From what I understand, Travelocity will not cancel the ticket portion as it is listed under activities. If anyone knows anything more specific, info would be great. I was able to get the nights not showing under FD for a great deal with Travelocity until they opened up for me through Disney. Sorry I'm not more help. Really wish there wasn't so much to keep track of. Pins, codes, and no availability really start to get stressful!

I have two little girls (6 and 2) and was a little bummed to let go of some sort of themed resort, but CBR looked beautiful and from what I read fun for children. A few times since then I pulled up the WDW site (just for fun) entered my dates under the FD promotion just to see what I would get. Less and less rooms came up every time I checked. And yesterday CBR and POR were completely sold out of FD rooms for my dates. This morning I did the same. CBR was sold out, but when I pulled up POR low and behold what do I see....A ROYAL GUEST ROOM AT POR!!!! I'm thinking no way....I didn't even think they included those in this promo this time around. I called DH quickly and wondered his thoughts. Of course he knows his girls will love it so he says "Call Disney!" So I do and wait on hold with that nervous feeling thinking it will be gone before I talk with a CM. Finally my CM picks up, I ask her about it. She even thought hmmmmm. She checked and there it was!!! We got it!! I'm so excited my little princesses will get to stay in this room and with such an awesome discount like FD! Sorry for a long long post. But like my title says I'm sharing with those that understand the excitement!!

Doing a happy dance!
Amazing!!!! What are your dates?

I've been playing around with dates at POR today. They must have opened up a new batch of royal rooms today because I'm seeing availability in all categories of Royal Rooms for fd.

So whoever is reading this and want POR, check the website now to see if your dates are available!
