I just thought I would vent and see if anyone had a good replys to justify the stupidity of the way you have to book a site at Fort Wilderness.
I am booked for a preferred site at Fort Wilderness 8/28-9/2. My SIL was going to join us on our campsite with her husband and friend, but she is no longer married and blah, blah, blah!
She asked me to book another site just for her and her friends so she wouldn’t be so cramped. Fine. I went online and there was NOTHING available. I decided to call and again NOTHING available. I understand that it is Labor Day weekend, but I also know that there are a lot of tent sites at Disney and it is the dead heat of the summer at this time and I am sure they have a tent site SOMEWHERE!!. The CM said NO.
So I got the bright idea today to try and book a reservation for her group for each night individually that we would be there. I decided before I do this, that I will try the original dates online. Nothing, of course, was available. So, I then decided to try to extend the vacation one more day, from 5 nights to six nights.
Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding!!! It worked!!! Before booking, I open a new tab and try the original dates and NO, they are not available. How funny it is that I can book for 6 nights, but it is not available for 5 nights!! This is not the first time either. Anytime I try to book a preferred campsite, I can’t get it unless I am there atleast 5 nights.
This makes me soooo angry. You would think they would rather book it for 5 nights than for nothing at all.
:ph34r:I am on to their little scam!! :ph34r:
So I print out her confirmation and call Disney to say I made an error when I booked and need to leave a day earlier. The CM fixed it and all is well, but what a pain in the neck. I have much better things to do than to play Disney booking games, like play on MouseBuzz!!
Sorry for the long post, I don’t really feel better- BUT We are going to Disney World and I don’t have to share my campsite!!
