    If the OP was just there, there wouldn't have been a BB to book for next year as the 2015 rates aren't even out yet. BBs for the following year don't usually come out until Oct/Nov, with the exception of a FD BB, which is usually offered in August/September for FD the next year in September.

    You can book RO now by calling, but if you want a package or want to book online, you have to wait until the 2015 rates are released, which should be sometime mid-July.

    You may already be aware of this, but wanted to mention that if you change from RO to a package, the RO will have to be cancelled/refunded and a package booked, requiring a new $200 deposit (or payment in full if this is done 45 days or less from arrival). Since RO and packages are different reservation systems, money paid toward one cannot be applied to the other.

    I do know that about the refunds now. I did not know it until after I booked my RO and put I big chunk down. I guess I will pay the $200 for the package when it comes out, then wait until I get the refund then apply the rest at that time.
    I do wish I knew that when I booked my RO.

    June 2015 for me :) We're also honeymooning, our dates are June 1-7!

    I've been in touch with a TA and she told me mid July they believe the dates will be released, but i'm pretty sure we told me we couldn't book a package until August? But I could be making that up, haha. That in July it was RO? We plan on placing our deposit in August, as we have a change jar collecting haha.

    We have had refunds show up within 2-3 days of cancelling and although it is dependent on your bank and how quickly they process it (Disney tells you it would take up to 2 billing cycles), most of the time you will see your refund a lot sooner than that. You could also book your package under a hold and have 7 days to make the deposit. You are still booked and get a confirmation number, but you could wait a few days to see if your refund comes through before making the new deposit. You do have to make the $200 deposit by the 7th day or it will automatically cancel, but it would give you some time if you wanted to wait for the refund on the RO ;).

    I'm not sure why your TA told you that, but packages can be booked as soon as the new rates are released :goodvibes.

    We are also waiting for 2015 rates to be set so that we can determine our trip budget. We are going in April 2015 over Easter. Does anyone know if they offer AAA rates during that time..I do not think that any other offers occur the 2 weeks around Easter. Thank you!

    During your stay at the resorts in a folder you'll receive an offer to come back at a room only discount. You have to book during your stay and here's a number you can call to make reservations. Traditionally the offer is for the same year but if your stay is later in the year I believe Oct. through December you'll get the bounce back for for the next year.
    We're staying this year 2014 in November so hoping for a 2015 bounce back

    We are looking to go sept 2015 hopefully for free dining. This year I noticed you could not get standard view for free dining at the WL only woods view or higher. Is that always the case?

    Yes we are staying at WL in November during free dinning with a courtyard view room. All the resorts are included except a few restrictions of some mod resorts, and the little mermaid standard rooms at AofA. We booked the first day of free dining for WL as there are limited amount of rooms available at each resort for this offer. All rooms were included at WL : )
    Once the rates for 2015 come out then look for a free dining thread that I am sure will follow. Lots of great information on release dates of free dining on these threads : )

    So if I'm going in Sept 2014, was hoping for a BB for a June 2015 14 day stay with kids, I may not get a 2015 BB?

    What resorts/room categories are offered depends on which room types Disney needs to fill when they offer a promo. Sometimes standard rooms are offered and sometimes they're not, it just depends on what needs to be filled.

    The BB offered in September (if there is one) will most likely be FD for select dates in September 2015. BBs for other dates in 2015 probably won't come out until Nov/Dec.

    Wow! So, upon my reading of the other posts, it looks like that IF I could be savvy enough, AND IF I do my research, that I could allow my bouncebqck to overlap with free dining and perhaps a sweet CM will allow me to qualify for that with a park ticket purchase?

    Next question......over the years do the FD dates vary? And how to predict when FD offered???

    Awesome!

    I haven't had my coffee yet, :surfweb:so forgive me if I am misunderstanding your post - but you cannot book a bounceback offer and qualify for any other discounts. :)

    Yes previous poster is right ... You can only use one promotion on a reservation. So for a bounce back offer you could not add free dining and visa versa : )
    I'm going this November during free dining so I'm using that offer on my reservation, but hope to get a bounce back for 2015 with a room only discount
