Last year's Round 2 emails arrived in the afternoon and the Round 3 emails arrived very late at night. So, I'd say any time is possible!

I was going to answer this one, but looks like akasleepingbeauty beat me to the punch

You're such a concise answer-er, gal! Anywho, definitely agree that anytime is possible.

I was also wondering if perhaps the delay for AP previews for New Fantasyland had anything to do with probable emails today? Here's to conspiring...?!

Krissy, I must have thought I had to answer it in 100 words or less

I was wondering about the AP preview at FL also but then they moved it so who knows??? Maybe they didn't have as many people to read the submissions, maybe they enlisted more "specialists" to read the specialty applications (especially since they added more questions to them this year at this round), or maybe they just like watching us sweat

Housebound today with my son who isn't feeling well. So my morning run was postponed until tomorrow - maybe that means I'll be running either to console myself or to think about my next round of answers

Hi Rhonda! I applied twice before but haven't gotten past the first round. This time I applied for WDW. I live in Arizona now, so I'm actually closer to DL, but I grew up in Florida so I'm more familiar with WDW.

Hello everybody!
While we wait for oct 10th, can you tell me which WdW resort is the best to be at New Year's Eve?
Does discounts apply for stayings begining at Dec 30th? We are going to stay 7 days before going on DCL Dream on January 6th.

I've already booked Holiday Inn at Dowtown Disney as a backup, but I'm willing to change for a s/d/p discount...

Thank you!

Not the poster, but I believe they are referring to the date the next special offer is supposed to be available for general public booking.

Thank you!
NYE at WDW followed by a cruise on the Dream - what a wonderful trip you have planned! The best hotel depends on what you want to experience during your stay and on your plans for NYE. The Contemporary would be wonderful and very convenient if you want to be on the monorail and want to spend NYE at the MK. If you are more interested in the special shows etc. at DHS or Epcot then one of the Boardwalk area hotels would be a great choice. That said, all of the Disney resorts are extra-magical for the holidays so you're sure to have fun at any of them. I'd do some rough estimates based on the information already available to see what you think your favorite options are and be ready to call as soon as the discounts are available on the 10th. Hopefully, you' ll find just what you want at a great price!
