How often do you call Disney?

If you have not received a pin code, how often do you call in to check when planning a vacation? Once a day, week, month?? I am not so patiently waiting here without a code a may or may not drive myself batty...lol.

I've called twice in the last four days. I'm quite sure I'm on the naughty list now and my punishment is no free dining.

I've called twice since I heard the pins were released on Thursday. The CM I spoke with recommended I call once a week to see if I had a pin.

Nope you are not alone! I have called twice. And it is killing me not to call again, but I think they might put me on the black ball list. So I am trying to refrain.

So just know whenever you log in and make a ressie and not even put money down on it they KNOW!!!!

Oh my goodness I sometimes get on the website several times a day either tweaking dining reservations, looking to see if a particular resort is available (I'm a resort changer ), checking park hours, etc....They must think I'm a lunatic, but hey, it's people like me that keep ole Mickey and Co. in business!

I just read in the other board that they send codes out on Wednesdays...maybe I will start calling every Wednesday / Thursday??

I am a lunatic though as far as getting on their website.

After the last batch of codes went out I went in and realized that all the saved quotes I had before in my accounts were too old and got deleted...

You can bet that I went ahead and made sure to save some in all my accounts as with Hubbys lol..

We need that Discount!!

How can you save a quote? Before they updated their system I had no problem saving quotes, now I can't figure it out. Any help is appreciated.

I can't believe she was a little rude about it. I mean, it's not like she answered 24 calls and emails and inquiries personally! It's obviously an enormous computer system that tracks all of that information and it's just their job to have it on hand when you ask questions. Really, we as guests have every right to hem and haw and probe and switch and question every inch of our investment. It's thousands of our hard-earned dollars, and it's their job to make it somehow feel "magical" when we're handing it over...not that we're being naughty for wanting it to be perfectly spent!

Oh, and I've called about every other day since the day people started talking about receiving Free Dining PIN codes. No luck for me yet, but I'm still hoping against hope. Every phone call is a deposit towards saving over $1,000, so it's worth it!

That happened to me the other day. The CM said boy you sure have been doing a lot of shopping. At first I just ignored it but once I thought about it more it was really creepy.
