    When the fall resort codes came out I was only able to get the discount rate for 4 of my 7 nights. I had Sun-Wed discounted Woods view room at WL. I kept calling every day, sometimes twice a day, to try to add on Thurs and Friday. I called this morning and there was nothing, and on a whim tried calling again tonight at dinner time. And I got it!! So now I have 6 of my seven nights discounted!! I don't expect to be able to get my first night discounted because it's Sat of Thanksgiving weekend, a blackout night.

    I knew that today/tomorrow was the two week deposit deadline from when the codes were first released. That's probably why the rooms came available.

    So keep trying - you never know!!

    That's wonderful. Did the CM's ever say that you were calling too much? I was trying to get a room @ Poly. I was told each call is noted in their system and that I had several. So I was just wondering if you got an attitude from anyone?

    No, I can't say I did, except yesterday everyone sounded tired. I called to make PS yesterday too. I'm sure that's just aftermath from the hurricane. They have had it rough in Florida this past month.

    I can't imagine a CM every having the nerve to say I was calling too much. In fact most of them said "keep trying back". Hey, as long as the phones are ringing they will have a job!!!

    Thanks so much for posting this. I tried this morning for my dates of Dec. 18-27 at the Wilderness Lodge using BAT and it was entirely open. Yes!! I have tried every other day for about 10 days and nothing was available, so it must be around this time that people needed to put their deposits down.

    Thanks again.
