Give them the certificate number. Once your AP expires, it isn't good for anything ~ except a souvenir!

Unless I missed something it was always the 13th for the major events (until just recently it came out the 12th if you have a Disney Visa)

The 9th was always just for AP/TIW/DVC to be able to book early the deminars (though it seems people were able to book a few other things as well, such as 3D dessert party, etc.)

Party for the Senses was not supposed to be available until the 13th. However, due to whatever was going on with the website, general admission (not the reserved seats) could be booked online yesterday. And some did book it.

Living vicariously through all of you this year. This will be the first time in many years we aren't going to the F&W. Lots going on (mostly good ). We will be back in 2014.

I'm not convinced Disney Visa folks will be allowed to book anything and everything on the 12th.

JMO-It appears to me that the promo for the offer wasn't exactly gone over carefully. I think it was fast, easy and they sent it out. I am not convinced that the credit card promotions folks are familiar with Epcot Food and Wine, especially about booking premium events. They may have set their cardholders up for a disappointment, just by not making the restrictions clear.

FWIW, the last word I got was that the IPO's still are saying the first day for booking the premium events is Tuesday morning.

I guess we'll have to wait and see what happens Mon and Tues. Crazy!

Wouldn't it be nice if we could get a clear answer? If I can only book stuff I already have access to (dvc, tiw, ap member), I'd really not like to get up early Monday sit on hold for hours, just to be told sorry call back tomorrow and do it all over again.

Thanks! I ended up telling the CM I had the exchange certificate and she was fine with that.

Well, my plan is to call to book everything we want Monday morning but knowing we might not be able to and some will have to be done Tuesday.

I will be in and airport Tuesday morning so hoping Monday does work out

I have a Party of the Senses question-
My DH and I have gone many times and love it. I have two teen foodie sons (my DH is a chef) and I thought they are now adventurous enough to try it. I know kids can go, as I've seen kids, some quite young, there before. I know I will pay full price. My question is: what is there to drink that is non-alcoholic? I've never paid attention as I'm always focused on the wine!

The service staff at PFTS is more than happy to bring out any soft drinks or juices they have at the showplace....you simply have to ask a server.

AKL IPO wouldn't even try to book deminars for me yesterday. They had no idea that there were certain "perk-ed" guests who were allowed to book early. So, I did it myself!

The DIS is reporting the Disney Visa offer, but their list has everything on it. Doesn't appear that anything has been left off their list of available things to book. http://www.wdwinfo.com/news/disney-news.htm

Disney Visa cardholders can book one day early - Monday, August 12 from 7:00am-11:00pm EST.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Reservations for these dining experiences open up at 7:00am EST on August 13. Tables in Wonderland members were able to begin making reservations on August 9 at 8:00am. They will also receive $2 off culinary demonstrations, beverage seminars and mixology seminars held on Mondays-Thursdays

I met a woman last year who complained LOUDLY and LONG that they would NOT bring her stuff for her child. She said over and over again "DID THEY EXPECT HIM TO DRINK WINE" (I admit I had to keep from saying "no they didn't expect you to bring an 8 year old")

I expect part of the problem is that there are more "people" then servers, it's a high ratio in general admission

As for the 'mixers' idea it's a good one ,but some parties have basically no "mixed drinks"
