I didn't get the third confirmation for the 4th night so I have just called back not happy now I can't move back to the bigger room as its been booked in the last hour don't know how that happened maybe someone did it on the internet before the guy got to book it so now I have 1 kid on a couch for 2 nights instead of 2 no rollaway beds gosh I hope someone cancels.
There is another hotel I could go to but it's 20 mins further away and $50 a night dearer without breakfast I can't see we will be in our room much anyway they will survive

Good news is I have booked night 5 got a great rate so we will stay out near the speedway that night instead of in San Francisco like I was thinking will have to book the car hire when the kids go to bed.

To be sure; but we can all do without the Mickey Fun Wheel of Death moments!

Glad there was an update from the hotel. Hope the last night works out for you.

maybe I just needed a heart starter today!
It's the 3rd night it would probably be easier if it was the last night it's a Friday so hopefully they will change their plans

Anyway quick question.

Do you think Disneyland, Disney world and a Disney cruise is too much in one trip? We are a party of 2 adults (32 and active 61) and 1 child (will be 6).

The bulk of our trip is in Orlando but due to now having to change our plans due to a massive budget blow out we are thinking about doing 3 days at Disneyland so we can see Cars land?

Are we crazy?
What a silly question!!!!!!

Of course it's not and of course you're not (and I'm not only saying that because we're doing WDW, a Disney cruise and Disneyland too )

Us too because CarsLand hadn't opened when we left in January '12 so we're going home via DLR

We would have spent a good 4 hours at Alcatraz I think. We did the audio tour and watched the movie at the start then once the audio tour was over we wandered back around outside and just soaked in the atmosphere.

Wonder if they are going to have %off? I'm waiting for that for my aunt and cousins as they are going to WDW.


I'm going to be at DL so don't need the FD watch for myself.

I thought WDW had already announced their %discount off rack rates? The discounts are currently available through to August sometime. Are your family travelling in September?

I have just now noticed this free-dining rumor. The Dining Plan Thread is going crazy with talk of the free dining, so I'm guessing that this Danny guy must be pretty reliable.

It doesn't benefit me as not only do my dates fall outside this, but I'm not eligible for free dining.
However, I do expect ADRs over my dates to suddenly become much harder to grab. People beginning their holiday on or just before Sep 25th will potentially be eligible for free dining up to 2 weeks after this and I've heard that free-dining makes the restaurants much busier.

So I think if anyone hasn't secured their September and early October ADRs yet, now would be a good time to do it.

I booked all of mine back at Easter, but I've rung Disney two more times since then to make changes and one addition. There are so many finer details I didn't previously think about, such as times for the Eat to the Beat concerts, the times the band plays at Biergarten, or even getting to restaurants at opening to try and get good seats.

I don't know if I should consider myself an effective planner, or just plain obsessed.
