I have been finding that a resort will say nothing available and some actually have something.
Its expensive but Grand Floridian is available for 11/28 to 12/3.
at a mere $12,000 and change for 5 nights with my passholder discount.
What the hell, I'm worth it.
I guess I could go with no discount for $3500, but it's reallyyyyyy hard to pay rack rate.
I'm attending a wedding there 12/2 and I know if there are rooms that haven't get booked, they release the block 30 days in advance. I would definitely keep checking daily but keep an extra eye on them 11/2 for sure. Right now, all the brides rooms are full but you never know if someone cancels last minute.
I check every day, multiple times. It's getting crazy but I will definitely be checking even more so around 45 days out and again 30 days. You never know!
I'd be happy to be part of the bride's guest list if it gets me a room. Where are they registered, so I know where to send a gift?! J/k... sorta...
shes doing the whole grand Floridian wedding . Pretty excited about it!!
Thanks so much for this! I tried all sorts of date combinations and couldn't find anything anywhere, so I booked each night separately and ended up getting the exact resort and dates I was originally trying for- standard view POFQ.
I'm so glad I saw your suggestion!
Just as an FYI, for those doing this one-night-at-a-time booking, I had to do that for myself for December. I actually spoke to a Disney CM on the phone who was able to link all of the individual night reservations into one reservation (though I was on hold for quite some time as they had to have some "real" Disney customer service people do the link) and then I only had to pay one deposit. I was doing one night at a time and getting one night at one rate, the 2nd night at a different rate, etc. (Like AP rate, standard rate, Magic Holidays rate). So for those trying to do this online, you may find calling and having Disney link them as one big ressie might be easier.
Definitely call back and talk to someone about linking all of your nights to minimize the odds they might make you change rooms any or all of those nights.
There's no guarantee at all, but any time we've had a split reservation at one resort, they've found a way to keep us in the same room for a seamless experience.
Well I called today to merge my reservations- first if all I was shocked to get through right away! Immediately after their tell us what you want to do recording a real person answered! No wait, no being kept on hold.
The CM not only merged all my single reservations into one , but she also found one more night ( that I was unable to find even checking every day) and added that on too!
So now I can breathe a sigh of relief and continue planning my trip!
Thanks again for all your advice!
