Have you tried getting a room at the Residence Inn using Marriott points?

It is mandatory. In all likelihood, they just closed their browser.

There is going to be someone interested in FEs and Walking on Water who is going to be mighty disappointed because there is no record of them.

I do know that whoever this was entered their data on July 6th.

I am thinking about saving the points - both the Residence Inn and the Courtyard are 20,000 for a night. We take a trip to Hilton Head every 4th of July, and thinking about using them for that trip next year - the room in Hilton Head is much more than $138.00 per night for close to the same amount of points. I have the $ for parking at the port put aside, and just thinking about using it for the hotel room and parking at the hotel instead. Make sense????

Thanks for the offer - they do have rooms with points available, just thinking about not using them, and saving them for another more expensive room on another trip.

Ian, stop stressing for that person. You are doing us all a "FAVOR" by getting info in mass to the group heads, so if someone blows it on their end let them own it. My .02 for the day. We perfectionists have to stickup for each other

I don't recall ever seeing any complaints about the parking situation there. But it wouldn't hurt to post this question on the main DCL forum...you'd have a broader base of people to get opinions from.

Thanks Peg for taking care of the dry erase boards. I'll return the ones I bought, as these are much better.

In 2002 we left our motorhome in hotel parking--do not remember which hotel though. The place they told us to park it was in the back so it was not visible from the road and it was away from the standard hotel guest parking. I worried that it was out of the way so could easily be vandalized, but when we got back all was fine. A few years later we parked in downtown Baltimore in a LIGHTED PARKING LOT with an attendant and a window was broken, someone got in and stole our little TV I prefer hotel parking in Cape Canaveral!!

As I recall, the Panama Canal Authority had increased the fee for transiting the canal, and DCL tried to pass along the fee to the guests as an increase in port tax/fees. It was something like hundreds of dollars per guest.

Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo if you are taking the time to enter the information, please include your contact information.
SUGGESTION TO EVENT PLANNERS:

When the survey closes, perhaps you could post a list of all the people who have signed up so that interested individuals can make sure they are included.

Can you call them directly and ask? Find a manager to be sure, not just a summer clerk.

I totally missed that. Wonder if it was before we booked or some time when the thread got so far ahead of me that I jumped over it. thanks for explaining.

Not everyone provided a DIS name. My suggestion to the other orgnizer was going to be to send out a confirmation email. I would suggest that rather than posting names just post that an email was sent out. Folks will know whether or not if they've received an email.
