Partly our own fault, but we have no flexibility on the dates so we've booked a slightly more expensive room and hope we can downgrade it later if the room type comes available rather than having to "settle" to get the dates we want.

£2000 to change my off-site booking to Caribbean beach. This is just for 2 adults, safe to say I'll be staying put and not changing

Well I turned on my laptop at 8am and got onto the Disney website to book at 11am so had a 3hr wait 😱😱😱 although that seems like a lot it was much much better than previous years when it just crashed... this queue system is much better

Managed to book POR for July 2020... must admit the price had gone up a little bit since when I checked yesterday but I still booked haha hubby wouldn’t answer his phone so couldn’t discuss it so went ahead and booked 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 we were staying here anyway 🤣🤣🤣

We will be booking a moderate (POR most likely), and haven't noticed much of a difference in the price between the rooms.

I am getting nervous now, with all this excitement, that we're going to miss out on something! We have booked free dining twice now, and both times booked June/July.
There are only so many rooms available with free dining. When I got on the site at 11.15am, there were no rooms available at POR in July with free dining.

Does anyone know if theres any rooms available for july at POR? the standards were excluded from the promotion, so i guess that leaves the rest!

Looks like the marketing is working well- 23,000 people currently trying to book a Disney holiday all at once? Really?
