I did tear up a little bit but then just proceeded with my mission!! I will send you a PM!

I never had a CM do another ressie unitl they read there long list of prompts and then give me a confirmation number. Your ADR's look great! Glad to hera you were able to get Sci Fi ( not available that is crazy) and Le Cellier. California Grill is my most favorite restaurant in Disney!
I panicked initially but then it all worked out! Thanks for your great feedback about our ressies!!

Congrats on ALL of your ADRs and your WONDERFUL CM!!! I'm certain that you wouldn't have gotten such great service anywhere else! Our last four days of our trip overlap with your first four days! Hopefully we'll see each other. I still can't imagine planning all of those meals. WOW!!

Changes and the 4th of July!

So what would a good trip report be without some changes, right! Yes, I have already made some changes to our dining plans. I have also been able to add 2 more days of dining. So as of right now we are booked through 7/2!! I will post the changes once all the ADR'S are made!


My next dilemma is the 3rd and 4th of July! Our original plan was to eat at Ohana on the 3rd and then watch the MK fireworks from the Poly beach....WELL, I have been reading HORROR reports about 7/3 and 7/4 that people are staking out spots on thebeach starting at 3:00 in the afternoon and that by 6:00pm it is PACKED on the beach!! Also, people are reporting waits of up to 1 1/2 hours for a monorail and buses out of the area!! Also, the Poly doesn't even let you drive and park your car their unless you have a confirmed ADR! I cannot imagine that ANY fireworks are worth that aggravation! So, I need suggestions for the 3rd! Being that we will be at the Boardwalk Villas from 7/2-7/5 on the 4th we will definitely just hang out on the Boardwalk and watch Epcots fireworks from there I thought about maybe doing the AK during the day on the 4th as there are no fireworks there? What do you think? HELP!!

I agree with you - nothing is worth the stress of dealing with crazy crowds! (not to mention safety issues)

Joining the Fun!!!

We are going to AKV concierge level June 29-July6
We've got the same dilema for the 4th
Here's my thoughts
7/3 go to MK and bear with the crowds for the fireworks that night
7/4 hopefully BB for some swimming fun and to the Poly for the dinner show- if beach is too crowded we may try for boardwalk or epcot. decisions decisions

Keep up the great reporting
Maybe someday soon I'll try my hand at this trip reporting stuff

Diane,
You know I hate crowds. It would be great to watch the fireworks from Poly and have dinner at 'Ohana but probably not worth the stress. I think AK is a great idea and will be the least crowded park ..

After several viewings of "wishes" during your time there, I would forego the crowds on the 3/4. On a side note, it's easy for me to say that.. my cousins (distant to me close to my grandparents) own the firework company that supplies WDW with all their fireworks.. their original shop is Millington, NJ and then they opened one in Fl to supply Disney and other florida attractions.. so I get to see their firework style frequently in NJ in my hometown during the italian feast week in July! Of course there is no disney magic with them but as much as I love fireworks, I do feel like "you've seen one, you've seen em all."

I think the AK sounds like a good plan for the 4th.

That large of a crowd would be stressful and could be dangerous, even, if people get crazy enough.

Watching fireworks from Boardwalk where you are staying sound like perfect thing to do.

Can you see the fireworks from the pool at boardwalk? That would be fun watching them while in the pool
