I want my free dining and I want it now.... ok actually I just want to be at Disney now and its killing me to wait so at least getting to book makes it seem like it is coming sooner. Just hope that I can avoid putting on the 20 lbs I put on last trip. I seriously have no idea how people can eat in the states at restaurants without putting on 5 lbs a meal.

You can't make that kind of change on line. You might as well wait until the day you call to add the FD code and make all the changes at one time. I would have a back up value resort, All StarMovies or Pop are our favorite values, because IF those Little Mermaid rooms are even available under the FD promo, they will be VERY limited. Personally, I will be shocked if they are included under the next FD Promo since they have been blacked out of virtually all discounts since they opened - but anything is possible, just be ready with a back up value resort :-)

I'm not sure which one is driving me more crazy: Waiting for the long overdue free dining announcement or waiting for Southwest to open up booking for my cruise that is 6 months away?!?!?

I have flown Southwest for years but I will NEVER, EVER understand why they don't allow you to book airline tickets more than 6 months out? Do they not understand how many over-planners there are in the world? LOL.

Ok, my rant is over for now.
Happy Friday everyone.

FYI- I believe Southwest opens up their next booking window on Monday.

I got a quote from a TA a couple of weeks back and she just sent me this!!

"I just wanted to circle back to see if you're still interested in a Disney trip in September. A new discount for that time frame will be released on Thursday and though we don't know for sure what it will be, there are some very credible rumors that it will be free dining. (Which I did not believe we will see this year, but this source has a strong track record of being right, so let's hope its true!)

If you're still interested let me know and I would be happy to provide you with a new quote on the 9th when the offer comes out."

Seems like it is concrete evidence!!!!! FREE DINING! Even though I trust black, 411 & Danny...that email was like the last 1% doubt I had is gone!!!

It's cheaper to stay in one room at POR with a family of 5. That's what were doing, I'm going to check the numbers once again to be sure. I have ran the numbers many times already. Keep in mind my kids are all considered adults now. If you have young kids it may be different for you.

I just checked again it's $804.33 more for us to get 2 rooms at POP and upgrade the dining. As much as I would love 2 bathrooms my DH would rather save the money.

You can go to theme parks 10 days and with hoppers, you can go to as may parks as you want per day. I believe you also get 10 WP admissions as well.

With Park Hopper tix you can hop from Epcot, MK, HS and AK as much as you want. HOWEVER, if you were to hop from Typhoon Lagoon to Blizzard Beach in the same day, that would use 2 of your "plus" options.

You do get 10 plus options with those tickets though...
Hope that helps!
