Bounceback Inventory

Do they ever add more inventory to the bounce back offers? I really want a standard room but only availability is river view room. I call every few days.
Is there a certain day/time when more inventory is added or is it just random?

Keep checking! People change plans constantly so you could get lucky. Example: We booked a BB last fall for this fall at one resort. Back in February, we decided we wanted CL at another resort but couldn't get the room view we wanted so I was holding a split reservation. I kept trying (literally every single day, sometimes twice/day) about 2 weeks later, something opened up. I will add that when I started calling, I was using the regular resort reservation line then was told I had to call the BB reservation line and that's when my luck changed.

thank you! I call EVERYDAY too! Now, I also received a pin for free dining but no rooms were available for our dates either. So I guess I should just keep calling for both? I'd be happy with a standard room-it's a bit cheaper and we could use that $$$ in other ways. Free Dining in a standard room would be $267 more than what we are paying for our River View room for 5 nights. We have 2 adults and 1 kid and we don't eat too much so not sure what deal to keep checking! Ha ha!!!

How do you call the BB reservation line from outside WDW? Can you share the direct number?

You can call the BB number but the actual changes need to go there guest service not the BB line.

I too am wanting to change resorts on a BB trip. I called over the weekend but they didn't have anything available. This gives me some hope! Thx.

I called the regular reservation line once I returned home but they told me only the BB line could make changes…very confusing. I really really hope something opens up!

You are correct. CM's at the regular reservation line cannot make any room changes to a BB reservation and will automatically transfer you to the BB line. Don't give up...keeping checking. I've got my fingers crossed for you

I think I just called the regular line and he acted like he could help me. Checked on a few rooms, etc. but couldn't find anything. I think I will try the 1-407-541-5514 that I found listed on a photo of the offer. Hopefully that will work.
