Yes, you can do that. At least that is what I have been told time and time again. That you can add it with no problem to an existing reservation as long as you meet all the requirements - like when you're going, length of stay, park tickets included, have to stay onsite, etc. I already have my ressies done for my dates in Sept.

Yes you can as long as they still have rooms available. they only slot a certain number of room for FD

Yes, you may modify a current Package. But you may be limited to what resorts, views, room preferences are in the sale, so have a 2nd. and 3rd. choice for rooms.

Good Morning!! Someone at Disney is probably having a good laugh at all of us today!

Yes I believe this is correct.

Unfortunately, I agree with this post, and I fall into the general public category! But in the past, the dates have been similiar I think.

Here's my 2 cents. I've been a lot, (not NEARLY as much as some here, but a LOT.) I've stayed at all the value resorts many times each.
My 2 cents is don't sweat it. You can have a bad experience at the Pop, and a good experience the next year at an A.S. resort. OR vise versa. Sometimes the pixie dust is in fate or destiny! We had one trip in particular I remember that we stayed at POP Century and it... well... it sucked! The AC wouldn't work right, the maintenance man couldnt get it working right, and our son (angry autistic and heat makes him angry) was miserable because the temps in the room were a lot more than we were used to at home. The service stunk, and the staff were all rude and hateful. Lines were long, and the food court had bad service and frequent shortages of drinks and icees. It was a real bummer. But that was ONE time, and we've had at least 7-8 other stays there where we had a blast and everything went great! We've also had an AWESOME stay at All Stars Sports, despite the fact that No one in our family is even the least bit interested in sports in general. I'd go as far as to say I'm "anti-sports" to a certain degree, but we LOVED the place!!!! We've had both amazing and horrible experiences at AS Movies, and both great and "just OK" experiences at AS Music.
My point is dont be all disgusted (though its easy to do... and I'm seriously guilty of it myself in times past) if you dont get the resort you want!
Just make the best of wherever you end up, and everything will be fine!
My slogan is a bad day at Disney is better than a good day at work.
Anyways that's my 2 cents.
Thanks for posting that!
It's hard to be patient sometimes, last night I was reading up on moderate resorts incase I don't get a value, and thinking geez can I afford this. It's nice to have a reminder that I hopefully will still get a value if I'm willing to change from my first pick of POP

anyway, I guess I'll just check again in the morning. sweet dreams all you free dining fans...

I agree, someone over there is getting a good laugh at us!

You can but it would not be guaranteed that you will be able to add on free dining in the resort you are booked at, you may have to be flexible with which resort you want to stay at.

I couldn't agree with you more that Disney is having a good laugh at us this morning!! Man, I was so excited! I woke up, checked my email and saw I had gotten an email from Disney Rewards. I swear, I feel like I never get emails from Disney Rewards! However, all it was for was a discount at The Disney Store. I was SO bummed! Oh well! Kind of feel a bit stupid calling my TA yesterday saying there was a "rumor" but oh well! Maybe that'll make her keep her ear out there even more. =)

max nights

I am pretty sure that the max nights for their specials is 14 nights. The reason I say this is because I was lucky enough to get a 40% off pin code this year and have already applied that to my ressie (I know I will have to sacrifice that to get FD). But, anyway, they would only let me use it for 14 of my 16 night stay. The other two nights had to be a seperate ressie and they could not be reduced. AND, they told me there is a possibility that I may even have to switch rooms after my 14 night stay is up!!

If you are planning on purchasing the DDP anyway, you should see which one is the better deal for you, you can always change it. I'm booked in on the 40% off too, but I think it might be better deal on FD. Maybe you could break it up into 13 days in one ressie and 3 in the other and at least get 3 days FD. Don't know if this is a good deal either, you'd have to do all the math.

But anyway! I did want to say 16 days in the WDW. You lucky duck! Have a great time.

It's weird that Touringplans and AAA Canada would BOTH get it wrong.

Although, DISunplugged said Monday.

Argh.
