    If I book and something I want opens up, or a discount comes out.. do I cancel and make a new reservation every time? I think my TA may fire me. Lol

    Is free dining going on during me week?
    NM, just checked what does this mean? Can someone check in on 11/25 for the following week and have free dining? If so that could be the reason this is so slim.

    I'm sure this is on your social media.

    Each year, people recover more from the recession. There are now more offerings in the parks. People are heading to the parks more now, with or without the discounts.

    The distance to the parks is a non-issue. We love Kidani and will always try to stay there. It's a pretty short trip to AK and the MK. Epcot and DHS isn't too bad either. We were on the bus longer to get to places when we stayed at SSR, than when staying at AKL Kidani. I don't get why people think the bus ride is so horrible from there.

    I get that this is an internet message board and you need to have thick skin, but this thread has gone downhill fast.
    Seems like the answer is if your dates are set in stone, book something you can afford now undiscounted so you have a reservation and can make ADRs. If discounts become available at your preferred resort, then change the reservation.

    Here is the website currently for that week-

    For people "in the know" or experienced with this time frame, is it normal for rooms to open up later? Does Disney hold back rooms?

    I don't think you read the original post in this thread. No, I didn't want to book because I think it's counterproductive to book hoping for a discount., but I don't want to be left without options. The questions is now- what options.
    The ones I would choose are gone.

    So please, find another thread to spread negativity. I'm trying to plan a trip and would appreciate valuable tips instead of veiled insults.

    11/25- 12/2. I've also tried to split it up to a 4/3 split stay.

    Dont forget you are looking at being on or near Pop Warner Week which always plays havoc with availability. Marie

    Oh I'm so glad you commented! TA question.. if I book and then switch or have discount applied, is it something that can be easily done? Or is it booking and cancelling the original reservation?
    My TA has a full time job.. and she's awesome, but it worries me to be dependent on a long phone call from her to Disney if that's what it takes to do any of the above.

    Then you need to get off here, and get on the phone with your TA and tell them your exact needs. Without acting soon, you may need to book offsite.

    I know you don't want full price, but for those dates, I see AKL, YC, GF, BC, BWI available as a room only reservation.

    Nice suggestion but that is an extremely popular time for us DVC members (first several weeks after Thanksgiving due to less points) and Poly for certain and most other DVC resorts are already booked by members besides some limited availability at Saratoga Springs and OKW. People wanting to rent those weeks need to rent more than 7 months out for the best chance at availability. I book my home resort Kidani right at 11 months out to get that popular time. Just checked the other day and Kidani in most room types is booked solid now as were others. ;)

    Without knowing exactly how your TA does things, I am kind of hesitant to answer. I will tell you assuming that a discount does become available, it shouldn't be a project to apply it. That is also dependent on the policies of her agency as well, which I don't know. Also speaking only for the KK agency I work for, we do have a number of agents and do assist each other as needed so that shouldn't be an issue, but mousehockey is correct. Get in touch with your TA and tell them exactly what you are looking for, they cant assist you if they don't know what you are looking for. I do hope that you get the reservation you are looking for!! Marie

    Exactly. Those ressies are gone, and trying to land a confirmed reservation for that time is virtually impossible.
