Hi,

Advice please. Looking at booking with FD from December 12th to 20th after a week off site (I-Drive probably). Price would be $2154 for POP or $2726/$2771 for CBR/CSR respectivley with 9 day tickets and FD.

We are going to upgrade to regular dining if we stay at a value, which should cost approx $304 for two adults, so the price difference would actually be $2458 vs. $2726. This equates to a £158 difference in "real" money :) :) lol.

My question is: is it worth the move to a moderate?? The money isn't the issue, it's more what I get for that money. When we went to Orlando last year (1st time) we stayed off site and spent very little time in our room. 12+ hour days at the park plus travel time meant the room was just for eating, sleeping and other body bits! We also spent a lot of money on table service at Disney ($100+ a night) at BoG, Sci-fi, Rainforest Cafe and the Coral Reef restaurant.

I guess my second question should be: if we do move to a moderate, what would you recommend? CBR or CSR and for what reasons?

Thanks.

    The only thing that's not making me worry, to much, is that my week is still showing as available for Sept 27-Oct 4 at POP.

    We are booked to arrive on 26th October 2014 staying in Caribbean Beach Resort, I thought we would get free dining but have just been informated this offer is only open to holidays booked through the US Site.

    Does anybody know if free dining will be offered to UK residents for October ?

    I noticed that on the offer page from Disney too. But when I clicked on a link that another member posted on DIS where you can make a book online, i tried it and it works for AoA and we are only staying 4 nights and it seems to give me the FD! But I cant book it as Im using a TA so i gotta wait to hear from her. Booo... Im freaking out here.
    Hoping it works out for you! AOA is my favorite but we probably have to do CBR this year because the whole family is going and it works out to the best deal. Anyway I am curious to see if it goes through even if its not listed on the website special offer page. Best wishes your way! :D

    Just to update you brave folks, website server still not doing values (it crashes deliberately when you get to the pay part, but it works just fine for moderates)
    and the phone is still making me redial just to get a ring tone. Have to head to work will see if I can try later tonight.:wave2:

    Anyone with experience? Can you tell me why POP would be available for October 2-11 but not October 3-11? I don't have any more time to try to call on the phone and this is what is showing up online.

    I would just book the 2-11 and call back to modify after the phone lines die down.

    I would just book it, and then call later when the phones aren't busy and drop the extra day.

    Got CSR with FD standard room was hoping for preferred. But since POR Riverside is out we switched. Not sure if it the right decision or not to move to CBR instead. Any ideas?
