knewton64--I also read your Backstage Magic trip report and was confused about what exactly happened. Would you mind giving more details or at least disclosing the nature of your problem? For example, did you not like your room assignment, etc.? (I'll admit we were a little frustrated when the majority of our BSM tour got DCA park views, while we were stuck with a second-floor view of the taxi waiting area. Those cabbies would argue with each other--loudly--every morning. We didn't complain, though. Just figured it was the luck of the draw.)

If it is "5 o'clock somewhere," does that mean it can be 5 o'clock anywhere and all the time?

24 straights dAYS OF 100+ WEATHER IN dallas....
Um.....I feel that a much better way to state what happened is exactly what the orignal poster said in this thread.
The very same thing happened to me and I found that a lapse in customer servicing of the guest doesn't sit well with me as I work in the hotel hospitality industry.
And I don't hesitate to call out anyone in the service industry (travel, hotel, restaurant, gas station, etc) who chooses to deliver to me that kind of customer service.
The errors that took place occured not only at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel (Yes, I was issued a room upgrade so that wasnt the issue) but most importantly at the level of one of the ABD Guides; Kristen.
Now does that mean I have totally written off ABD??
On a side bar here as well as including this vacation,
one of the many issues I have brought up (post this vacation) to the office of Mr. Craig Hodges (ABD) it appears that via the posting of DIsneyKevin (his post just this week on ABD side of DIsboadrds)-
.....ABD is now doing.
And I like that.
(ok...that was a compliment to ABD - they get 2 thumbs up)
I have every intention on returing one day to the nice state of California and seeing the Walt Disney Family Museum; etc and do the San Fran vacation thing and somehow innertwine a 2 day stop over at Anaheim and see DL the way it should be presented; thru Walt's eyes ("A Walk in Walt's footsteps).
Or I may opt enstead and go thru ABD's BSM tour and see the changes like for ex I have never seen the World of Color, etc.
I dont know just yet which way to turn on this or I may do a ABD Rocky Tails tour......
Whatever the case may be, I AM very appreciative that ABD is choosing to unveil the round trip n/c ground transfers to the airport and to express a thank you to the 2+ ABD returning Guests.
yes, they will have me as a returning Guest, it is just a matter of when but I do feel as I mature thru the process of traveling 2 a year now, to not sweat the small stuff, take a big gulp of air, express your feelings, then move forward shud I feel that customer service went awry somewhere.
So, all is well w/me. I am now having fun planning my NYC adventure....never been there and looking forward to it.
Hope this clears up any confusion.
Only 90 more days & I am off to Hawaii
And yes - I will make a stop over and see the new Hotel of Disneys.
Now.....if this dang 100+ weather will just gooooo awwaayyyyyyyyy
Por favor manténgase alejado de las puertas
