Oh wait. This isn't Groundhog Day. I bet you guys would go crazy it it were.
You're crackin' me up already today.

I'm not even going for FD time, I'm going Aug 25-Sept 3, but I love this thread. Everyone is so nice, helpful, and quite funny. I know it has been said before, but it is wonderful to have people who understand ones obsession. I hope all you FDers (can I make that a word?) have a great time and eat as much food as you possibly can.

Everyone wants to stay at the new resort :-)

I had the same experience as Jenseib, we lucked out and got that FD pin for last November/December, but I would NOT have paid full price to stay there ;-). We have to have 2 connecting rooms and were excited to try it out and the theming of the resort is beautiful and is like being immersed into a Disney or Pixar movie. The pools were fantastic and the food court was great. BUT the Little Mermaid rooms were way too far from the food court and bus stops - for us. It was not so bad in the morning when everyone was excited and happy to be going to the parks, but another story when everyone was exhausted and grumpy at night after being in the parks ALL day. My husband started driving our suburban to the parking lot by the bus stops and we would drive back to our LM rooms at night. I am so happy that we got to stay there, but unless they ever come up with some kind of super discount for those suites, we probably won't be going back.

Yeah only two more sleeps. My question is there is three families going and we all want to be in the same section of the resort. So if I call and book all three rooms do I have to put the deposit on all three or can the other two families call back to put the deposit down. It's not a big deal if I have to but the one family just wants to pay for the whole thing at once and I'm not that nice.

Is Friday the 13th the only time they'll have the villains out for the MNSSHP? We're arriving the 12th, but were planning on going to the party on Tues, 9/17. Still debating whether to go ahead and buy the tickets now or wait until we get there to take advantage of the military discount. Would save about $50-$60, but not sure it's worth the risk of having that night already sold out when we get there. Any thoughts on that one?

When you each call, just ask for your reservation numbers to be linked so they will put your rooms together. If you made all three reservations you would have to put the deposit down for each room/reservation.

OK, now you've got my curiosity up on this one. I have a box of tissues on my desk so I'm prepared.

Loving the thread. DH and I talked last night. I had been feeling I was the one pushing for Disney, but last night DH said he was just as excited to be going back to Disney. We have a trip planed for Montreal in June and what ever money we have left after the trip we will add to our Disney trip to upgrade dining. Wish it was Thursday so I could book. Since LM rooms are out I'm no longer stressing about getting on the phone right at 7am EST. I'll get online or call when my toddler wakes me up.

The villains are out at all MNSSHP. I believe, Joe was referring to a special Villains party/event at Hollywood Studios on Friday the 13th.

If MNSSHP is a priority I would probably buy the tickets now - you just never know when a party will sell out, but Friday the 13th would have a good chance of selling out.

And no use blaming Joe...I've always been like this. And being giddy over getting free dining just enhances it.

Thanks for all the replies. I guess this was my main question. IF fd does become available for my dates do you have a better chance of getting it on a limited number of rooms if you already have the room booked or a better chance if you book at the time of the announcement or are your chances about the same. This is 100% for my daughter, she loves every, any, and all things Nemo . And yes I know she will probably not remember it, but I absolutely adore the excitement she shows for Disney in general. She will almost be 3 in Nov. With that being said I was just trying to weigh my options. If we can’t get the Nemo room we could stay at the Polynesian for a little more . With a discount of course…lol thanks again !
