I'd be glad to answer any questions, if y'all have any.
Welcome back. Glad you had a wonderful time and congratulations on getting upgraded and spoiled.

Which side of the Tower were you on and did you get a bounceback offer in your room?
We were in the atrium club, theme park view. There wasn't a bounce back offer.

A question for everyone -- I apologize if it's been asked before...

About a month ago, I booked our July 23-27 stay at the Animal Kingdom Lodge concierge level. It was booked by my online travel agent. We have not heard anything from the Itinerary Planning people yet. When we stayed at WL concierge last time, they got in touch with us before 180 days out.

I don't need to make any reservations (I'll do those myself) but would like to give info to the IP folks on when we are arriving etc. Should I just email them, introduce myself, and explain the predicament?

Definitely contact them. The IPO office at AKL is the best, and especially Don. I was told that they do not always receive the contact information for their guests (especially if you book through at TA) -- they will be happy to assist you if you call or email them. Enjoy -- the CL lounge at the AKL is wonderful, and so is the Sunrise Safari if you get the chance to take it.

We received an email from our IPO at about 180 days. A few of the things we requested couldn't be booked until the 90 day mark. They assured me they would keep the requests and do that for us when it was avaialble to book. Will they send me a confirmation when they do that ? We are at 87 days and I haven't heard anything!

IPO and ADR for Wishes Dessert party

We are staying Poly CL in the end of August.. I had asked the IPO to keep checking for the Wishes Dessert Party for any of the dates that we will be there. Online the calendar for August is greyed out for that event, but if you manually enter the specific date it comes up. Since you have to input your Credit card and pay for the ressie, I called IPO before finalizing online... they checked again for me and said it was still not available!! I asked them to remove that request and explained how I just booked it online. I proceeded to give her my confirmation number to add to our itinerary!!! Very surprised that I could get it myself by a "back door" in the system and IPO couldn't!!

Thanks for posting this. We're staying CR CL at the end of August and I've been waiting for the dates to open up for the dessert party too. I'll have to give it a try!

Update: I couldn't get it to work. I guess I'll have to wait.

Lisa.. when you get to the dining section on the WDW site, manually enter the date you want. By default it should say todays date. Make sure you enter it with any zeros... for example 08/27/2011. If you dont put the zero in front of the 8, it wont work. There is a thread on here under restaurants..it has worked for a bunch of people already!!! http://www.disboards.com/showthread....5#post41278715

Hope it works for you!
