I 'suggested' that an early move to an otherwise empty 1 bed would be great, I was offered the room for longer for extra points... then the pixie dust came in and we were offered the move immediately with no additional points cost. 3 nights in a one bed, two on points (at studio rates) one on cash (at studio rate) which I'll be able to claim back on my insurance.

It was hinted that we would be more comfortable in a 1 bed on Wednesday - likely to be on lockdown and unable to leave the room.

Will be putting a formal commendation in for the guy shortly. Much appreciated.
Hi, could you let me know which section? I also have Nationwide insurance, called this morning and they told me I would have to sort with my airline! Iím DVC out of points.

It's under Section C.

Our trip doesn't end until 9th September so it doesn't come under curtailment.

As it's a change of itinerary - the out of pocket expenses for an extra night in Orlando was covered.

Just had word from Thomas Cook that our flight tomorrow out of MCO is cancelled. Currently sat in Mall of Millenia using their wifi! So just trying to extend accommodation and car hire.

We dodged that pop up storm as we were on Soarin for the 3rd time!

We then went to the DVC Lounge and eventually strolled over for lunch and it was fine all afternoon then.

Yes, I agree. Sorry wasn't clear. I meant for people staying there to look at thier options for stocking up.

So i have a daft question to ask?

If you stay onsite at Disney in either a value or moderate resort and to visit the food court youíd need to go outside, if the parks etc are shut and resort restaurants etc close, I take it you canít go out of your room anywhere and you have to hunker down in the room?

Thanks
