As for parasailing, I contacted and confirmed everything directly with Sammy Duvall center at CR.
So, I'm assuming as long as you have the Premimum res. number, they don't bill you for any of the tours etc.? I had asked this before and don't recall anyone answering, just wondering. Thanks!!!

Once you have given them your reservation number, you are not required nor billed for any of the tours. With the exception of a few restaurant where a credit card is need to guarantee your reservation. It will not be charged unless there's a no-show.

Thanks for this info! We did the Aqua Seas tour on our trip last November and I thought I remembered the schedule being much more limited than this, but maybe Monday is when we were trying to go, either that or maybe some of the other days were full or something.

Sorry for all the questions, we haven't booked yet and I am still a couple of months out from 180 days but it's our honeymoon and I want to make sure I get everything as perfect as possible! Hope you have a great trip, can't wait to hear about all the awesome activities!
Working with the IPO was a little frustrating because they would send me itineraries with a tour on one day, and then switch it the next! They made a couple mistakes, (right now our jet skiiing is scheduled DURING our segway tour ) however I haven't been emailed the newest one yet. They didn't answer all my questions, it seemed like they were really busy. They did offer some great advice (thunderstorms in the afternoon=no parasailing) that helped our schedule out.

I think the IPO would be super awesome for a non planner, but for a super planner like myself...well you have to let go at some point, right?

I have a very high energy job where I'm on the go constantly, so this schedule doesn't scare me in the least! In fact, two weeks before we leave I'm volunteering as a camp counselor for a week. The schedule is very similar to this (go go go!), except no massages and 5 star dinners!

If you have the IPO book for you, they do need a CC # to guarantee your spot.

I think I know what you mean! I want to try and upgrade to the chef's table at V&A (pay the difference oop) and I am already worried that the IPO will forget or something and I won't get it! I am tempted to make the reservations myself but I know there is no reason not to let the IPO do it!

this sounds fabulous. I'm wondering if I could take my child's massage time, for example and have one massage each day? Or is it just one massage per person?

Just wanted to let ya know. We DID book both online if that makes a difference.
Ok, I called back to upgrade tickets for DSis and was asked for an additional $70 deposit on the one package I was changing. That was np, of course, as the package price is the same either way. I was only charged the $130 on my package and have received my initial package info in the mail.

Not like it makes much difference...but just to let know the website asks for less than $200. Well, it DID...I dunno about today.

thanks. I was more concerned about paying for it when we booked than just giving the CC number. I know HDDR and a few others charge the card when the res. is made as well as tours. Thanks.

I never come to this board, so I am very happy I happened upon this thread. I have been planning my trip for a week. How does this sound:

Nov 28 Check into AKL Savannah view for 2 nights with Platinum Plan
Lunch in room dining
massage
Yachtsman
Epcot fireworks cruise YC marina

Nov 29
Breakfast in room
Richard Petty (this is just a maybe--long story but not sure if I'm going with my dd or my hopefully by then fiance)
mini golf
sea raycers

If going with dd then no Richard and will do Aqua Seas instead
Victoria and Alberts
carriage ride at POR

Nov 30- send over luggage to Poly for a 5 night stay MK view with DXDP--run over and pick up keys so we have enough credits for lunch--also will use monorail to get to Epcot from Poly
Breakfast in room before departing AKL
Dolphins in Depth 9:45
Coral Reef for lunch using dining credit off Poly reservation
Cirque 6pm
Fultons 8pm
Flights of Wonder (I know not included but I never get around to doing it)--OOPS editing-I think it is Flights of Adventure but whatever----the balloon--LOL

I'm open to any suggestions. I have until 6/1 to work this out to start making ADR. Thanks

My husband and I were considering this plan, then we thought about something.....if you are only doing 1 night and it rains....are you just out of luck? For example, we would be doing fishing, boats, Richard Petty, Fantasmic, parasailing, golf, Segway, etc. Many of the things the Platinum Package offers are outside. We have been to Disney several times when it has poured down rain for hours. Just wondering how this might work since you basically only have 2 days to get everything done.

I guess that's just the luck of the draw. I would plan a few things that aren't weather dependant. (meals and a few indoor activities) I doubt they let you change dates due to rain.
