Thanks to some bad influences in this group I am thinking about upgrading the first part of our trip to club level for the extra FP. The room I want is available 11/28 - 12/2, but not 11/28 - 11/30. I really only want the first 2 days. Can I book all 4 then cancel the last 2?
Maybe, maybe not. I would try calling the 407 number and if they can’t do it for you ask them to contact the inventory department and see if they will do it for you.
Good call, thanks!
I couldn’t modify my dates, but I could see that if I tried to book the earlier new dates they were there.
So I called and it took the CM a while - he even put me on hold for quite a while to “talk to the supervisor” - but eventually we got it fixed.
How soon after booking did you call? Was it your plan all along, or did you just decide to change dates?
I needed to change dates after we found airfare.
It was months later.
Oops, sorry for being a bad infuence!
And I now have a club level room booked at BWI. It was the cheapest option I could get. I don’t know if I’ll keep it. I need to talk to my agent at MVT. I probably should have gone through her to begin with, but I got too excited!
Now I’m considering an Ultimate Day of Thrills tour instead (or VIP Tour if I can find people that want to do a share). Yes, I would love to stay CL at BWI, but the tour would be a cheaper option. Plus, I feel like it will be a huge let down to start at BWI and then move to CSR. All y’all’s fancy talk about tier-busting FPs has made a mess of my plans! I’m looking at you too @Pod!
We really did love the BWI, though. The Club lounge was awesome, although it can get crowded as it is small.
I’ve never stayed at an Epcot resort (this is only our second trip), and I realllllllly want to. I gotta stop throwing money at problems! But it just seems like such an efficient way to solve them!
Well, they say time is money, which means…
Money is time.
That’s the way I look at. We often spend money to avoid things as much as we spend money to do things. One of the things we really like avoid is standing in line.
And time is very precious!
It’s the one thing you really can’t get more of, no matter what. Some people can save money, but no one can save time. We’re always spending it. So the question is, what do you want to spend it on? I spent my time badly in the past, and I’m so done with that.
And now booking is available for just the 2 days. So weird. I think I feel better staying club at CSR than BWI because it won’t be such a shock going from CSR club to regular CSR. I was starting to dread the disappointment of the downgrade!
I am the same way, unfortunately, at least when it comes to Disney!
So, back to CSR CL?
Possibly. But I’m having trouble justifying it. We have an ADR heavy trip planned (DxDDP split between 2 rooms). We really wouldn’t get much use out of the lounge. I can make all my own reservations, I actually like doing so. So basically, it would be for the FPs. If we do the Ultimate Day of Thrills that’s essentially 9 or 10 FPs. And it would be a few hundred dollars cheaper. We also wouldn’t have to change rooms. Which brings me to the other thing I’m struggling with - we fly in late. Like 10pm arrival. So I don’t want to pay for a club room that night. Which means we’d find somewhere super cheap to stay that first night. Which defeats the whole purpose of flying in the night before…I wanted us to wake up in the World all settled and ready to go. So yeah, I’m thinking tour now. But at the end of the day, I’m hoping for TSL EMM because that would cut the cost way down and make it easy to do RnRC and ToT with FPs on 2 half days, or RD one right at EMM and FP the other. Though I may be willing to shell out the cash for a private tour if it gets us into SWGE and on the rides. So many different directions!
Your mind works like mine! I am constantly trying to figure out what the best plan is both financially and in saving time/getting to do what we want. I spend far too much time obsessing over these details. Now I am off to look at the Ultimate thrills tour, just in case that works out better!
