TiW is now $100. You also get a 10 percent merchandise discount with an AP and you'd be eligible for AP discounts on rooms.

Sounds like you are leaning toward sticking with your original dates. Just wanted to point out, if you do change to Nov 11TH-21ST, a few things that are usually not there holiday wise are the Candlelight Processional, the Story tellers in Epcot and the tree on Mainstreet, USA. Other than that most holiday decorations should be there.

Also, if you go ahead and get AP you will be eligible for the AP rate which has not been released yet for those dates. I suggest that you keep an eye on the boards for the AP rate to be released and try calling yourself the day it comes out. You may get some pixie dust that way. You don't need the AP itself to book, just need to show it within 24 hours of check-in.

This is our plan for the first week of December, AP with TIW.

onsite and new dates

I appreciate all those that have given positive feedback to my situation. After talking with family we decided staying onsite is important to our needs. We will be changing our dates. Right now we can get the hotel we are looking for and will be able to see the candle light processional at the end of the trip if all goes well.

I' ve continued checking to see if anything has opened and while it doesn't work for us King rooms at CSR opened up today if that helps anyone else with a PIN code looking for our original time frame. I am still looking out for our original dates since my DH and Dad still have to make sure they are available to go at the new time.

With our new dates we will be able to do all the holiday things that we would have done in Dec.
Story tellers in EPCOT, the processional, MVMCP, and osbourne lights! Am I forgetting any other holiday fun? Fingers crossed this all works out this time.

You aren't going to wait around until Wednesday for the TA are you? Get it booked yourself before what you want is gone again.

dates

I've been diligent about checking several times a day and while our original date is still not available finally changing by a day it is!!! Once everything is booked and we're successful I'll report back and as always thank you to all that had positive comments.

WE did it!

I wanted to say thank you for all that responded to my plythe. I wanted to report happy news and say our trip has been booked with our PIN for free dining and after many up and down moment we were able to get the dates of 12/4-12/14 which is ok with us. Our original dates were 12/1 -12/11. We are now happy to know that we are indeed staying at POR in a royal guest room with pool view. Of course standard would have been fine but it's not like I had a choice when trying to book two rooms together. We also know we will definitely be in prime holiday time so candle light processional and MVMCP here we come! Yes it will be during pop warner week but it is what it is we're going to Disney and the happiest place on earth can't be all that bad right?! Now to tell my family and booking dining on June 7th! Wow, where is my family why is the world finding out first that we are indeed going on vacation. If only everyone could diverge on one spot today but I bet I'll just tell everyone as I see them.
Thanks again for letting me vent and emote here since my family wasn't home then either!! you guys were great with advise and support!

Thanks for posting your happy ending. Now you just have a few days to plan out your ADR's.

Pop Warner week usually only affects the resorts that the kids are staying at. You should have a great time.

We had no problems with the PopWarner group in 2007. We even stayed at Sports which is often their first choice. Glad you got it worked out. Congrats!!
