Okay I got the email that my TA ressie was accepted and is good to go. When you make your ressie you have to email them with your CLIA card and certificate for DCOK so they can approve it. I was nervous because I used my discount in August, and when I came back they changed the policy to only one trip per 12 month period but I guess since it was before the change they let it go. Hurray! I am REALLY going to Disney in 79 days! Most of my ADRs are done as well. I find it really weird that I was able to book lots of prime restaurants, especially at reasonable times. The only exception is a 9:30 dinner at 'Ohana. I don't think I can eat that much, that late at night!

Is it a huge hassle when checking in, etc.?
Yup, I've done that at POR, arriving later so we booked 1 night room only before package begins. Be sure your 2 reservations are linked as continuing stay. Remind them at check in that you'd like to be in the same room, and not have to move.
Next morning when you check out, and check in remind them again ( unless you hate your room & want to move) that you want to stay put.

We were able to stay in the same room, but it took that CM about 10 - 15 min to "see" if we could stay in that room I don't know if she was just putting me thru the gears cause she seemed put out when I told her that at check in the day before we were told we could stay in the room. So I spent what seemed an eternity standing there waiting to see if I had to move feeling sick, because we had unpacked, believing what we were told the night before!! This CM was kinda nasty. Don't know why I was very polite.

After a big 'ol pain in the rear, I was able to get everything I wanted. I realized this morning why everyone hates the new site. I woke up at 5:50 AM this morning, and I was logging into the site by 5:56 AM. When I logged into My Disney Experience it did show it was my 180 day, but only gave me the option to do 9/9. I figured it was doing that since it was before 6 AM (7 AM Mickey time). I logged back out and waited until 6 AM to log back in. Due to it being so slow, I didn't actually get in until 6:02. The first one I tried was the BOG for 9/13. The date was blue on the calendar, meaning I should be able to book for that date. When it brought up the list of restaurants, the only one with times available was V&A's, and I mean the only one. I messed around with it until roughly 6:18, before giving up and calling the (407) WDW-DINE number. I even tried the old site, and that didn't work. I ended up in an automated system and when I tried to get the BOG ADR, it said I needed to have a resort reservation to make the reservation for that date. I literally said, "No S-(rhymes with pit) Sherlock." So, I press 0, until it says it is going to send me to a representative. Luckily, I wasn't on hold long and by about 6:20 AM, was making our ADRs with a very nice man.

Our ADRs are....
9/9 - 6:40 PM - Mama Melrose's
9/10 - 8:00 PM - 'Ohana
9/11 - 8:00 PM - Teppan Edo
9/12 - 8:00 PM - Cape May Cafe
9/13 - 6:55 PM - Be Our Guest
Wookie Congrates on getting Your ADRs, BOG is Awesome!

Dani Disney in 79 Days sounds Great! Maybe you will be able to snag an earlier ADR @ 'Ohana yet

I had a similar experience. Friday I was able to make ADR's and was going to wake up earlier to get it done before going to work, good thing I didn't!!! I went on that night and even though it showed me at the 180 day mark, it wouldn't let me make reservations. I ended up getting back on Sunday and it let me make reservations for 9/5 & 9/6 but would not let me make reservations for 9/7 or 9/8 so ended up calling for 9/7 and 9/8 and waited about about 1 minute before someone came on the phone. The ADR's I made are:
9/5 : BOG @ 7:45 pm
9/6 : Chefs de France @ 6:30 pm
9/7 : Le Cellier @ 7:00 pm
9/8 : Via Napoli @ 11:30 am

Awesome!!!!
I agree, I think 9:30 @ Ohana is late. I would periodically check to see if an earlier time opens up, or what about switch the day with another ADR?

Hi everyone else! I have been kind of MIA but periodically trying to keep up. My uncle met with the surgeon on Friday who told him the results of his bone and ct scan, I still don't understand why the actual dr who did the biopsy and ordered the scans could not give him the results, but instead made him wait a week to find anything out!! Anyways, good news!!! His bone and ct scan came back clear!!! He has localized surgery next month but in the mean time, he is worried it could spread because the dr who did the biopsy said it was aggressive. The surgeon said he does not see this type spreading, so lets hope he's right!!

What do you Poly lovers think of the new rooms? So far, I love it!! I showed the pics to my husband and he's less than impressed, he liked the darker colors better.

On a happy note, tomorrow is Friday, YAY, so ready for the weekend!!!!

Have a great day everyone!!!

Happiest of Happy Days to You, Sheila!

Hello to all of you.

Dani: Is there no Free Dining going on when you guys are going? That always seemed to make the ADRs hard for us to get when we went in September, hence only ever getting to try Le Cellier this past January! Not for lack of trying all those previous trips though. You can't just leave us hanging... what other places did you nab?!

Sue M: Was that not-so-nice experience with the check-in CM at POR? Just wondering because that was the only slight I had against the entire resort; the front desk staff was in need of some training. The rest of the resort was wonderful though.

Jen: Thanks for the Miss M congrats. Now you've got me wanting to see Life of Pi! Although the crying thing scares me a bit. Is it super sad?

Wookie: Yay for all of those ADRs. Okay, so what are you gonna order from BOG? The grey stuff... right? Say the grey stuff.

Sheila: A Very Happy Birthday to you!! I hope you get treated like a princess today!

Jeanette: sorry you are overwhelmed with school work, way to go though! How are you managing it on top of everything else?

Miss: yes, it was good, but I like different movies. It really makes you think at the end. I will just say I believe in Richard Parker!

Dznycrzy: My DH does not like the new look of the Poly. I am indifferent, but I think I liked it the way it was before.

For Wookie, and Dani, and DznyCrzy....hooray for your ADRs, they look great!

Yeah!! So after almost a week of running around getting paperwork filled out, etc. I am finally going to be able to start subbing tomorrow! (I was supposed to start this past Monday, but there was a huge hiccup in the process.)

I think I convinced my DH to add another day to our trip then! He asked if we could wait until the first of the month to book it though, so I'm waiting patiently! :-)

I'm sure that is our Sarah's doing. Maybe she could work on the other class now.

Concerned Mama here ... one husband, 5 young children, two jobs and school ... don't you think maybe you are over doing it just a tad bit???
