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.
For us if you booked before 4 th May for an extra $100 gift card on top of the $200 one. Booked direct with Disney. Must admit booked because excited

At POR the difference between a standard room & a princess riverside view room can be a 1000 extra for 2 weeks (although this year obviously the minimum you can book on this free dining offer is the garden view room). You would also lose the extra $100 if you waited (had to register for that prior to release day)

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.

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 wouldnt answer his phone so couldnt discuss it so went ahead and booked 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 we were staying here anyway 🤣🤣🤣

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.
