    1 hr and 50 min got my fd added to my package but I will be there one day earlier than the fd starts. So I booked RO for my first day. The cm when I booked told me I couldn't pick up my tickets till the day my package starts...thus requiring me to buy a single day ticket for my first day (very pricey)
    Then someone directed me to this on a sticky:

    In cases where Walt Disney World Resort Guests would like to begin using their Package Tickets prior to the day of check-in (up to three days in advance), the Guests will be directed to visit any Theme Park or DTD Guest Relations location and request Early Ticket Pick-Up.

    Has anyone done this or know if it is true?
    If so, I will just call back later and add my extra ticket to my myw package. much cheaper!

    I'm getting nervous I got right on with a CM this morning she told me everything was set but still no email! While a friend of mine waited an hour to get through and already got her email!

    Smitch, I have a question i'm hoping you can help me with :goodvibes The kids and I are booked, at this point my husband is not going. He *might get to join us for last 3 days. Do you know how that would work? Would we need to add him to the main reservation and just wait to upgrade our tickets when we get there to how many days we need (so we're not paying for more than he will need?).

    Did I read it wrong that the FD offer was only for stays of 6 nights or more? I extended ours by a day, we had originally planned to go for 5 nights. Did anyone successfully book a 5 night stay with the FD deal?

    It is a 3 night minimum stay. 6 nights was just the savings example in the advertisement.

    Just hypothetically, what's to prevent a family of 5 from booking with just a party of 4, then paying for a ticket themselves from undercover tourist, and paying for meals out of pocket for the extra person? If it was the difference between us going, and not being able to go, I wonder how many families consider this possibility. Especially if the kids are small.

    called in this morning to change existing ressi ...... wanted free dining but of course I miss that by a few days we are checking in Oct 5th and cant be changed because of our school fall break...so I was going to get the 15% room discount we are staying at sports, she came back with the new price that was about 150 higher then before she said that it is because I would have to pay the difference of the new ticket price..NOW in the past I have never had to do this. I thought since the discount was room only it would not have anything to do with the ticket price.....confused and DID not change anything at this time

    I got through this morning at 7:10am, and booked with FD at POR royal room garden view. I logged on MDE a little while ago and saw the reservation change (from Pop originally) but it said nothing about dining, so I got nervous FD wasn't included on the reservation and wanted to speak with a CM. I got through on the phone right away, and was on hold for only a minute before I spoke with a CM who confirmed that FD is applied to my reservation. I wonder why some people are on hold for hours, when I keep getting through right away? I dialed 407-939-1936 if it makes a difference.

    I still haven't received an email and it only shows the updated bal owing on MDE but doesn't show anything about any DP. It used to show QSDP. I am starting to get nervous. :confused:
