Congrats! We have done that very stay for the past 2 years. YC CL is my very favorite place on WDW property

Same here, I see all categories of rooms for my dates of May 3-11th at POR

Booked room + tickets via phone call to a CM about half an hour ago. Wait time was less than 3 minutes (called in on 407-939-7675). CM was super helpful, priced each option for me individually (crashed her computer once but she was great). Ended up saving close to $700 over rack rate. I had run it online and the numbers agreed exactly, but I wanted to do it by phone because I had also previously locked in a room-only and wanted to be sure everything went correctly. I have a total mistrust of Disney's web site. Magic and computers just plain don't mix.

No discount for me. Apparently there are blackout dates for check-ins on 2/18 through 2/23. We check-in 2/22. Boo.

Waited about 90 minutes but finally got through to an extremely helpful CM. We chatted for a bit and saved me about $650 on my trip to the Poly in May.

35 minute wait

Waited 35 minutes on hold...boy do they need to improve the quality of the hold music. Sounded like a bad tape all wobbly like. Anyway...switched from 3 nights king room @ POFQ w/3day hoppers to 3 nights king room @ CSR w/4day hoppers and saved $205. Not too bad...considering it's a short trip.

Comes out to about a 15% discount overall.
From $1414.40 to $1208.60

Only took about 10-15 minutes with the CM to price out a couple options.

I do know that we are switched to POR from AOA, 7nts with a package in a standard room, and 1 night at end with a room only....but I had to take a garden view room, and no idea if we will have to pack up and move rooms. I am waiting to see an email with the info in front of my face! I need to see those numbers?!?!?!?!

If you don't mind my asking, why do you have the the room only at the end? Was it because there wasn't availability in the standard category for all the nights? If that is the case, then yes, you will probably have to switch rooms for the last night.

I am sure this is a stupid question, but I don't really understand what happened when I tried to apply this discount to an existing reservation. I called and wasn't on hold very long...had already checked online to make sure our rooms and dates were available...but was told that there was no availability to apply the discount. However, the CM did tell me to call back weekly as there was a decent chance we could still get discounted due to others changing their plans. I've done this for the past two years (applied promo to existing trip) and never had a problem. Has anyone experienced this? Would I have been better off waiting and booking today instead of several months ago? I know it's no guarantee and of course we are still going...but a little savings would have been awesome!

When you checked on line, was there availability? If there was (and still is) I would call back. Or book the new one on-line and call to cancel the old one.
