NEW REASON TO STRESS!!


Since you all already think I am nuts, I'll just add something else........


I just got off the phone with Disney Dining. I wanted to find out when the 180 day window opens for our trip. Well I found out it is December 23rd! No big deal right WRONG!! Turns out that the new ressie system will be open to all guests for ressies from 3/23 to the 180 day mark on December 22!!!!!!!! DO you know what this means? Thousands of phone calls to Disney Dining for those folks with trips planned in April, May and June up to a June 20th arrival! I can't call until the day after! Do you think it will be a nightmare? With Deluxe dining that is a TON of ressies to make! What do you guys think?

The worst! How bad do you think it will be? I hope they are prepared! This includes all the Easter/Spring break people! Doesn't affect our ressies but that is a TON of phone calls!

I have been wondering about the adrs too with the new dining system.

I have a trip booked for May 13th. IT is not definitely, but if I can get it paid off in time, we will be going. I got a pin for the first time and could not pass it up

So, does that mean I can not make my dining ressies until December 22nd, too? thanks

Yikes! That's going to make for a very long morning!!! I think you'll get most if not all of your ressies, but expect to be on the phone for quite some time.

Oh they are TOO CUTE! What a fun day! They must have just loved that!


And regarding my comment about the phone....I am confident that you'll get everything you want even if you do have a longer than usual wait. You'll get through and best of all you'll be super-prepared!

It really is.

We were going to do that one, when I got a pin in my email. It was for 5 nights, 5 days for 535 per person at a value resort, plus $500 gift card upon check in. How could I say no


Now, I get why when I went into Disney store tnite, they had a huge Mickey sitting on the counter with a birthday hat and pin....LOL

Your boys look adorable in their Mickey gear

Aww that's so cool that your boys had a disney day at school. I'm quite jealous! I had my own little celebration in my room at uni but nothing quite on the scale your boys did! Hope they had fun! :
