Yes, 1-407-W-DISNEY. Then was transferred to guest services. I was offered either Poly (marina view) or Contemporary (garden wing garden view) as the same price as the WL reservation. The rack rate for the room at the Poly was around $800/night.
I received an e-mail that I needed to call to change resorts. I called again last night as I saw a one bedroom villa at Copper Creek was available for my dates. The CM said that since my original reservation was for a deluxe, I could not upgrade to a DVC resort with the same pricing. The...
I already have a reservation for October 2021 and I have several 6 day park hoppers that I bought several years ago. So I can't use those tickets for the October 2021 trip? I have to update to a package with tickets??
So for 2021, no more room only reservations? Am I reading that correctly? You need a package with tickets to make a theme park reservation? What if you already have tickets that you want to add to a 2021 room only reservation.
Don't think that will ever happen. There was a resort themed to Venice planned for the area between the Poly and Contemporary in the original designs for WDW. When Eisner was CEO, a resort themed to the Greek isles was planned for the same area but was never built.

Pending approval from government officials, the phased reopening plans we submitted calls for Walt Disney World theme parks and Disney Resort hotels to open beginning July 11 for Magic Kingdom Park and Disney’s Animal Kingdom followed by EPCOT and Disney’s...
I think that you are charged the maximum rate for the resort when you book at 499 days prior to arrival. Your rate will change once the "official" rates are released for 2021. Hopefully that will be for a less expensive rate!
Same here, also hoping that there will be an extra special fireworks display the night of October 1 that I can watch from the resort.
October 1 is a Friday, hope there's not a Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party scheduled for that evening.
I used to go every year but now go about every three years. I also don't usually stay at the deluxe resorts anymore. If I do stay at a deluxe, I usually do several days at a moderate or value before moving over to the deluxe. I don't make many ADR's anymore, just a few each trip.
I think it would be cool to return the decor in the Grand Canyon Concourse to how it appeared when the resort opened in 1971. Those neat (at least to a 13-year-old at the time) plexiglas trees, the vibrant carpet that matched the colors of the Mary Blair mural, etc.
I'm not 100% sure of this, but I think the only pools open 24 hours are the quiet pools, like at Port Orleans Riverside and Caribbean Beach. All of the feature pools now have fences and are locked at certain times during the day.
It must have been many summers ago. For summer 2019, a Tower theme park view runs $700/night plus tax plus parking.
The least expensive times to stay at the Contemporary are early to mid-January and most of Sept. Same rooms runs $625/night (plus 12.5% tax + $24 a day parking)
Main Tower - Theme Park View room is $850/night the week before and week after Easter. Same room is $878/night the week between Christmas and New Year's Day - these are the most expensive times for a WDW visit.
