DznyCrzy...as Sheila posted, you can ask for GS, but the regular CMs should be able to handle it as well... we've done this very thing before, since we usually book a BB in August for next year FD....went from reg DP back to QS, was not a problem.

So, definitely sticking with the Poly?! East coast has been hammered this winter! You guys have been getting our seasonal allotment of snow, too, I think.

So I'm sitting here with two BBs booked and I'm pretty sure I won't use either of them. One is for F&W .... we've gone the last few years and it just seemed like a good idea but maybe not this year. The other is for a few days before our Granny trip but since it will probably be DH, DD and myself we'll probably stay in a timeshare just for the extra room.

Now when do I really want to go???? Early May for F&G .... since this is the first year that they are doing the food booths I think it will be fun! But DH and I are suppose to be going to San Diego for a week mid April so that seems like a bit much.

And if all my lovely RC ladies would make up their minds I might consider a quick little trip in August ....

What to do ..... what to do .....

We decided doing it this way since we wouldn't get the full $200 deposit back and DH was worried that the 7 night cruise would be too long for my first cruise. He was not too crazy about his first cruise but is willing to give it another try so we went with the shorter cruise.

On a side note, I must vent, hehe. I am not happy with Disney's call service reps! Ok, it started out Sunday when I called DCL to ask a few questions. She then asked which stateroom we were looking at, I told her catagory 07A which is the cheapest of the verandah views she tells me there are none available and if I wanted a verandah view the next cheapest is $500 more, and then asks if I want to go ahead and book. I told her no because when I looked online that morning it was still available, she then tells me their system is more up to date than what I can pull up, then offers to put the room the room on hold, I declined that as well because I did not believe her. So, that night I go to book, what did I get??? Catagory 07A, booked AND confirmed!!!! Now I just feel like she was trying to get me to spend an extra $500.
Now, on to the resort reservation. I called last night to change the dates to 9/5 - 9/9. I literally had to tell this woman the dates 3 times because their system kept messing up and she had to keep switching screens!!!!! So then our current reservation was with a BB offer for free dining, upgraded to Dxddp. When I originally made the reservation I was told I could remove the Dxddp if I decided I didn't want it, at the time I was torn between the two, but yesterday I was told no changes can be made to it.....what???? Has anyone else had experiences with that? Mind you, this ended up being a 35 minute total call so I was quite irritated by the time I got off the phone!!!
Now here's the kicker....the Disney website has our new reservation correct but the confirmation is now showing 8/31 - 9/9!!!!!! Why can't they get anything right????? Needless to say the excitement has been over taken by frustration, for now at least!

I'm sorry you had so much trouble. The areas Disney is lacking in most are their call center CMs, and there technology (website and apps). I still can't get the app to link my ressie.

Wookie, hope you can come to a happy resolution of the AOA/WL dilemnia... my first thought would be AOA for the extra room, you and DH have your separate bedroom... can you make an ADR or two at WL? I also think one PC room is not a good fit for the 4 of you…just not big enough. I think your heart lies with WL … how about the FW Cabins?? It would give you extra room and is in the similar setting as the Lodge.. or it is you that prefers not to stay there? If you are looking to cut some $$, have you considered scaling back to the Regular DP? In the September heat & humidity, you may find yourself not as hungry as you normally might be and 2 TS meals a day can be a lot. We go in August, and it’s just enough for us to get in one TS on the regular DP. Just a thought.

I do really love the WL. I thought about the cabins, but the bed in the bedroom is just a double, and I would really rather have a Queen. If you stay at a Deluxe resort during FD, do you get the basic DDP. If so, then I would be willing to give up the DlxDDP for it. I usually don't like to do TSs. I hate waiting in long lines behind people who don't even look at the menu to figure out what they want to eat until they get to the register with their 3+ children. I hate trying to find a table and then feeling rushed to get done eating and give up the table because people are dealing with their children, while balancing food and giving us the death stare of, "your done eating, so give us the table". Which is the main reason for the DlxDDP upgrade. Well, it also means we can get at Le Cellier and CRT. I can make the risotto at home, so it won't be the end of the world if we miss Le Cellier this trip. I'll just have to figure out which is more important.

Hello lovely ladies. I need to catch up. In at work right now, and after work I am taking the kids to dinner as per Danimal's request.

Last night it was decided my dad wants to join us on the cruise. What? So now I have to rework the budget. I think our WDW stay post cruise will be shortened. I will play with numbers tonight and see what I can do. I desperately need a new bag so I'm working that into the budget as well. It would be much easier if my parents could contribute to the vacation, at least cover their airfare or something. Oh well, have to do what I have to do I suppose.

Hi Ladies,
Trying to back read and catch up. I totally hear ya about not saying too much about upcoming vacations. Sometimes we mention, sometimes we don't. I don't know why some non disney fans are so vocal with their opinions... Go figure!

It's sunny today, snow later. Of course.

Missout-Looks like you're getting snow. We've made it to Feb, spring is around the corner.

Padawans-Thanks for the tip about paying off room only online.

Jenny-Glad everyone is feeling better!

Janet-Crazy Disney IT. Will they ever get it right? I sorta picture the entire team as 3 guys in some apartment in Orlando. Work awhile, order pizza, repeat.

Pumba-We haven't tried Tutto yet, need to. Nice to hear your thoughts. We are big fans of LeCellier, too.

babyberger-Great news about the meds. That will make visiting the parks so much easier.

I heart-Hope things went well with at the Dr's.

DznyCrzy11-Your cruise followed by poly plans sound fabulous!

Wookie- I use the android dis app. And your new case is very cute!

GG-Trip pondering is always fun! What to do, what to do...

Pas-Your trip plans do sound perfect, just as they are!


jaceraden-Welcome! We are big fans of the Epcot resorts, but also love POFQ. We go back and forth on similar decisions.

Dani- Hope you have a nice dinner!

Well, I gotta get the bathrooms done. Wish they were self cleaning.
Have a great day RC friends!

I get hopelessly behind in posting here nowadays and I'm afraid to just post and run without the multi-quoting madness this great thread deserves. But I'm lurking often and enjoying everyone's changes both real and imagined.

Are you telling on me?

I love your thread because all us special needs RCs (as in, we have, umm special resort booking needs,) can post there and feel right at home and I haven't gotten behind yet

I'm still booked in those woods at the far end of Bay Lake. I'm looking past Discovery Island at this:




I don't know what came over me. My mind was SET on FWC and still sort of is. I've always wanted to try it, but Our Dear Jungle Cruiser Sarah keeps telling me, as she always did, that I just wouldn't be happy there. But, DD and DH LOVE CR and it's a known entity and they're happy to move - or not. UGH.

FWC is the pragmatic choice given the additional spring break overcharge and DH and I have our own room (albeit a double bed and bunks). I love FW, but maybe not so much staying there? And then there's my little issue with not having a gym there... DH and DD have given up on me and have left it up to me. DH keeps asking if I've changed yet. I'm thinking out loud, aren't I?

WWY(all)D?
