    Wow, alot of changes. I wonder what happens when you currently have a reservation for a full hook-up site but it is now a preferred site. Is the rate still the same as stated on the reservation or will it increase to the new preferred rate for the same campsite? I booked full hookup because I don't care about cable but will I now have to pay the increased price on my upcoming fall reservation???? Interesting.

    You will pay what you have already agreed to. Disney will not charge you more, as long as you already are booked with your deposit paid.

    Are the new premium sites going to be for BIG rigs only (class A)? :confused3 I have a 30 ft. tt and would like to be in a bigger site.

    According to the WDW website when you book a premium site it says the following can be put there:

    Thanks for that info, Rhonda. That's really good to know since I have a long reservation starting in October 2008. I just thought about 2009 rates. How will they handle those since the 2009 rates have not been released yet and the reserved rate is still just an estimate? Any thoughts?

    You will pay the 2009 rates. While Disney will book prior to rates being released you are not guaranteed prior year rates.

    Now, the question that nobody has brought up, what happened to the NEW PREMIUM LOOPS that were supposed to be part of this renovation?? Were they a myth brought on by the way rumors get twisted and warped around, or are they Phase II, which just hasn't gotten announced yet because they don't have to until they are ready to accept bookings for the new loops.

    Because a site number has not yet been assigned to you and only a site type, you will still be in the same type at the same price.

    I'd love more info on the pool...I've been wanting to stay at Ft Wildnerness [especially now that I found out you can rent campers] but the pool has always given me pause. Thanks.

    Well I did it. I upgraded our preferred to the premium. They won't be done for our normal loop of 1400 this year so I requested 800.

    Is 800 a good loop??? We have always been in 1400 so I am a little out of my comfort zone. :rotfl:
