Mobile Accommodation help pofq change to ssr or not

I booked last April for 14 nights in sept at pofq but have since booked flights and changed to 17 nights. Pofq isnt available (in fact much isnt) but ssr in a deluxe studio is for 700 extra (inc Ddp and 3 extra nights)

We have a 6 and 3 year old and liked pofq as its small and only one bus stop.

Would you change to ssr or hold out in the hope pofq becomes available (not sure how likely that is though)

Thanks

Change. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.

The problem is that if you dont change you have nowhere to stay for part of your trip. POFQ may become available after free nights ends but theres no way to know. We had a similar dilemma as we were hoping to switch to POFQ but no availability however after booking flights for different dates than wed booked CSR for I had to decide whether to bite the bullet and change while CSR was available or hold off hoping for POFQ. I made the change so I knew we were booked in for length of stay.

Thanks both. Yes we would have to sacrifice the ddp and either swap resorts and rent dvc or perhaps stay off site for a few days.

Such a shame as love the look of pofq but when we booked we didnt really know about flights

Can you not keep your 14 nights and then rent points for the last 3 nights and stay somewhere like old key west or beach club? points rental isn't too bad in September and you'll get to experience 2 resorts.

I am debating that but we are arriving a day later and also means losing the free dining plan for those days which id need to weigh up

So your reservation would then be 13 nights pofq with free dining and 4 days with no free dining and having to rent points elsewhere? The 4 nights accommodation would probably cost you at the minimum 150 so you are better off staying at SSR. Its a nice resort and has lots of different pools. Close to Disney Springs which has the best QS food options and the amazing Homecomin' restaurant which make me salivate just thinking about it! I think an extra 700 with free dining included is a good deal. Hope you have a blast!

Yes 13 nights as we went for cheaper flights and added a couple of extra nights on.

Ahh thanks. Id love if we could be guaranteed a refurb at ssr. A little worried about the size with small kids and some dodgy reviews on buses but aside from that it looks nice.

Failing that chuck an extra 1500 quid for beach club but Id rather put it towards a return journey lol
