Tomorrow's my 180!!! Starting to second guess my plan to do 3 character breakfasts (Crystal Palace, Tusker House, & Ohana) when we only have 5 TS credits. Also planning BOG (if we get in) and Sanaa dinners, so one of our TS meals will be OOP anyway. Worried that it will be hard to stretch out the QS & snack credits to fill the other gaps. :/ We've never done DDP before, so we'll have to see how it goes!

Wish me luck that we get a BOG dinner ADR!!

Got everything we wanted! ...other than BOG. Guess we'll just have to stand in line and try for lunch there.

Just an FYI for those that are not part of the FB group: there are free dining PINs out and about for late October and parts of November. Check your emails!!!

This isn't helping me, but I thought I would pass it on.

We received that pin....won't be using it though! We purchased AP's this year, and are hoping to book the room only bounceback when we are there next week. Wish I could share the pin!!!

If you have ordered any planning DVD's, or previously planned or saved a vacation pkg, you would've had to create an account giving them your email address. They randomly send out "pin codes" to people through email offering free dining, or sometimes room discounts. I have heard of people also calling to check if there are any pin codes in their name.

Not sure how they decide who gets one though.

The lunch was pretty delicious, but I love French food to begin with. Bog is definitely french though diluted for American palates which is a good thing in this case as it makes it appealing for kids too. I'd just pop in during an off hour for lunch and see if it smells good to you. That's how I pick restaurants outside of disney!
(Also the desserts are delicious you could just go for that! )

Don't second guess character meals. They're some of the best bang for your buck in ts credits.

Ooh, I don't really understand pins. Nevertheless, what are the new free dining dates that are being offered? And is it likely they'll become available for everybody?

We are going to WDW 5th November to 16th November and are staying at SSR. We got the Deluxe DDP and are so excited about that!

Speaking of food, we managed to get most of the ADRs we wanted, but I am totally disappointed that we couldn't get a BOG ADR for the entire duration of our trip- 180 days out! Surprisingly... We couldn't get into Via Napoli either on our choice of day. So shall try to book should anything come up.

It was a lot easier to get the ADRs we wanted in August 2011, and that is far busier than November! Puzzling...

Anyone done Hoop de doo review? Thinking about it for this trip, it looks fun. Is it worth the $? I am going to buy a tables in wonderland card because between just that and O'hana it should nearly pay for itself and we can use it for next years trip too.
How about horseback riding and archery at the fort, anyone done either of those who can fill me in?
Thanks

Our 180 days is Monday - we're trying for T-Rex, CRT, Via Napoli, 50s Prime Time Cafe and BOG. I actually keep going back and forth on BOG as well. I feel like if we can get the ressie we should go but I'm thinking we'd like the menu better at 'Ohana. I guess I have the weekend to decide!

I'll add you to the first post! I think it's just BOG. I didn't have problems with anything else. Best wishes.

That's what I looked at, too. We reviewed BOG's menu and didn't see anything that really wowed us, so I suggested O'hana and hubby jumped at it (all you care to eat skewers....he's on board. lol).

Let us know what you decide.

Just booked POR for 11/23 - 11/30 using my free dining PIN.......$2,503.00!

Two weeks to plan ADR's. We don't know if other family will be coming with us or not yet. I told them I needed to know within 1 week or they're on their own for dining ressies!

We've done "Thanksgiving at the Fort" and Brown Derby on Turkey Day before....not sure where this year...hmmmm....any recommendations?
