Careful! These boards are addictive!

I am trying to book my ADRs online and the system is going up and down. So frustrating. I have 2 of my 5 booked.

My ADR date is Sunday!!! I can't wait!

Though I have to say, after reading all the trouble others are having making their ADRs I am glad I have a travel agent to do it for me! All I have to do is wait nersously for her to get back to me!


Once you've got your ADR's set what do you others do planing wise to prep for Disney?

I had to use the UK URL to book them, but I got everything booked on the day and time I wanted them. This is the 1st time that has happened, but the last few trips a free dining promo was going on. I use a travel agent, but I am so OCD about my ADRs that I book them myself and just send her the info.

I usually start working on my touring plans for each day once I have made my ADRs.

HI All
Just found this thread. We have been waiting months to figure out when in October 2013 we would be going. This will be a great trip for us as DW, DD (10) and I will be going with DD's best friend, also 10. This will be DD's best friend's first trip and we can't wait to see her light up when we arrive. We will be staying at POP. They will be staying at PORR. Our dates are set for Oct 30 - Nov 6.
This weekend we will ALL be getting together to figure out our schedule for parks and restaurants to be ready for our ADR's!

I'm in We are going Oct 19-26. We are staying at OKW 20-26th but not sure where we'll be on the 19th. I hope discount codes come out soon. Would really like to stay on-site that night. We have a evening flight and don't want to waste DVC points with a late check-in. So excited

I hope this isn't too silly of a question but I'm subbed to 2 different Oct 13 threads and I want to make sure I'm on topic, the other one is in the Happy Dance section? Can anyone help me with the difference between the 2 threads, what is more appropriate to post on each? Thanks!

I think there may actually be 3 October threads. I found a 3rd planning thread the other day, then there's also the October Discount Watch thread, LOL! They all have similar discussions.

We're booked at POFQ Sept 28-Oct 6. Will be celebrating my 30th birthday (and boyfriend's first trip back to WDW since he was in high school. Got all of our ADRs done - got everything we wanted at pretty much the times we wanted. Just waiting for La Nouba tickets and MNSSHP tickets and we'll be about set other than flights.

FINALLY..got a deal on a hotel! Anaheim here we come!

Just got to share this asI am doing a serious happy dance!!


After two months of research on hotels, I was at my wits' end! I could not find a good deal on a two bedroom with kitchen suite that was located near the park that was a)not sold out or b) not a million miles away from DL. Well I was telling my friend my predicament and she simply said "Well, why don't you use our timeshare?" And voila We now have a hotel. We are staying at the Worldmark Anaheim and got a great rate with my friend!!

Yes, it isn't Grand Californian, but still... it is WAY more than I thought we would get and I couldn't be more excited!!!!
