I think it's the first time that PINS have gone out AFTER a public offer is released. And note that this has a different set of dates:

For arrivals most nights 8/2510/2/13,
10/1810/31/13, 11/1111/23/13,
11/3012/4/13 and 12/1512/22/13.

Book by 8/14/13.

Offer is nontransferable, excludes campsites and 3-bedroom villas and is not valid at Disneys Art of Animation ResortThe Little Mermaid Standard Rooms.
I'm so glad I did not get one! After changing my dates and cancelling all my ADR's for the first week in December, I'd be pretty upset.
I've been trying at least 10 times a day for any evening at 'Ohana and can't get anything earlier than 9:40 for any day of my trip! I can be flexible my other preferences but I REALLY want to try 'Ohana!

It will be refunded to the original form of payment. Good luck!

Thanks!! I would be happy to even have it go towards the trip I book on-line...I just want to book the FD for the whole trip but being I am at the lake calling on my cell from Canada I would rather book on line then cancel the first trip when I get home. I just want to make sure I am not out the deposit or first night that are on my Visa.

Gotta quit obsessing about Oct Planning. (well and now Jan planning as well )

I leave for Seattle/Alaska in 23 days. Gotta Focus!

Packing lists, Day in Seattle plans, order water/carry on water, add more excursions/no more excursions, Alaska's weird weather this year, warm weather/cold weather/rain so pack shorts/capris/jeans, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

However everytime I start I think "oh that reminds me I gotta do.....for Disney.
I would love to do an alaska trip. Have fun!!! Is this the trip with your dad?

I am holding off. I made CRT ADR in April before I got the FD PIN so I paid in full. I've read on the Restaurant board that if the CM doesn't do this transaction correctly, you might lose the ADR. I am just going to wait until our trip to get the refund, I don't want to chance losing that ADR.

I am so jealous of you guys who know your number of days until you leave haha! I have a crazy 1900 park fare reservation that I cancelled like 2 months ago when we moved our dates back that refuses to get out of MDE- it more than a month before our actual trip so it's messing up my countdown thing! I called and they told me there was nothing they can do until it expires. Boooo! I think I'm like 85 days out? Lol - oct 26!

Every morning, he would practice standing up straight trying to get the top of his head to hit the stick.

By the time we got to DW, he could do what the CM's called a "Head Butt" - the top of his head would just touch the measure bar and they'd let him thru.
Yes, I've got a little one at about 39" barefoot right now, too, but to remedy this problem we're going to do what we've done with my other kids in the past.... wear cowboy boots or thicker healed tennis shoes, like Sketchers. At times even just wearing a baseball cap puffed up a
bit was enough to meet the mark if they weren't too picky. Good luck!

I have a question. I'm doing a room only reservation on 11/10 then switching to POR on the 11th. Will I get double the Mickey mail. It's been a couple of years since the last time I went and I remember getting my luggage tags and some kind of coupon book. I'm not sure if the room only reservation does not qualify for that book since its not a pkg.

That would be sweet if they had availability at POFQ, that's where I really want to stay.

You can ask them to move the deposit to the new reservation.

I hear you. Ohana is one of our few must-do's and a few weeks ago before we booked, but I was pretty sure we would, I snagged an ADR for 8pm. This is later than we ever eat and I'm really afraid that my 5yo won't make it. I have been hawking the website and can't find anything earlier. In fact I really can't find many ADR's that I want. I've been there for FD the same week two other times and I don't ever remember having such a hard time getting ADR's.

That will not work in this case. Room only reservations and package reservations are on two different booking systems. Money cannot be transferred between the two systems.

Mickey mail is just with packages.
