After a discussion with my mom, we decided to switch to preferred rooms at CS. The CM was wonderful and go everything switched over, but I just checked our reservations online. My res list FD, my Mom's does not. Do I need to call back? Or do some reservations not show FD?
Hold time was over 30 mins.
Do you think we should have switched? Buses and food court are higher priority than pool, since she and I have to do the breakfast run in the morning while the kids and DH's are waking up and getting ready. LOL

So whoever is reading this and want POR, check the website now to see if your dates are available!
My dates are November 22-27. I never thought that those rooms were an option. So I was beyond excited this morning!!

Forgot to mention....If anyone plans to book through travelocity....I got a slightly cheaper rate by doing it over the phone. It was about $22 less over the phone. I found the difference to be in the hotel fees spot (Perhaps they charge for doing things online?).

Congrats! How long was the wait on the phone? I need to call to request bed rails for my niece and was hoping things would start to quiet down and the wait times would be less.

The CM asked me if I wanted the refund to my discover or visa, I said discover. I put the Travelocity ressie on my discover, so the Disney refund will wipe that out for me on my Discover. My question is.....Do you suppose I will still have 0% on the Disney visa, since the charge is still on there (and was booked through Disney)? My guess is yes. My statement should be coming out around the 14th. How can I tell? Does it specifically state something about 0% on it? Thanks for your help!

I always buy insurance. This trip and the last I bought it through Allianz. I think it was $150. My husband gets sick a lot (and not just colds, hospital-requiring things) so just too big a chance. Like now, he has kidney stones. Not obstructing at the moment so they don't want to do anything. But my luck they will move about a day before we leave. We don't even tell the kids about the trips, not for the surprise, but because I am honestly worried we could have to cancel it for an illness.

I called the 407-W-DISNEY number to cancel my ressie this evening and was on hold for over 30 mins (but less than 45 I'm guessing)....
I was also on hold for at least 20 minutes around 5ish when I called to ask questions about cancelling.
Apparently, the phone lines are still having trouble keeping up!

Thanks. Would that cover non-refundable tickets through Travelocity, too, or just the room? (The worst case scenerio for the room would be a one night deposit, which is close to the cost of the insurance.) Thanks for your help!
