I just checked out the online reservations, seems like they work out ok except that you have to keep going back for different restaurants. Am I doing it wrong or is that right? I wish it had come out before I was able to make my ADRs. Unfortunately the restaurant I want is all booked up. I was hoping to get an earlier reservation, mines later than I wanted but hey I'll figure something out. Seems like it would be a good idea, no more waiting on hold!!! Oh and by they way, good luck with all of the food!!!

Hi, I just came across your pre trip report. We will be there the same time as you. You plans sound great. We are doing the deluxe Dining too for the first time. I hope its not too much food. You have to go tot he MNSHHP, its the best ever! We love it and the fireworks are amazing! I am considering upgrading to a moderate resort from POP but like you I am trying to watch what we spend. I don't know if its worth it to upgrade.

Hey! Welcome over! I'll head over to your pre trip report right after this. I'm almost definitely going to do MNSHHP but I need to convince my friends from Florida to join me. Not sure if my bf will be able to b/c he has to go back to Tampa for class at some point in the week. I'll have to try to convince him too!

Have you stayed at Pop before? I really enjoyed it. But I can ask you all that over on your report.haha! on my way!

ARe you going to dress up for the MNSHHP? I don't but I got tshirts to wear. I still need to order the tickets. I have been selling things on ebay to pay for this extra stuff. NO I haven't been to POP. We are spoiled because we are DVC members so its been a while since we stayed at a value.

I just found your PTR, and I'm all caught up on your past TRs.
Can't wait to hear more!!

I know you have probably got tons of advice on this, but I have a Tables in Wonderland card, and I love having it. I go down to Disney about 3-4 times a year, but my card paid itself off in one trip. I think you will like having it.

I was getting conflicting information on websites but the lady reassured me I get 20% off every participating restaurant, all day, and that includes alcohol. So yeah, I'm paying $75 for it but I'll be using it for 2 people this trip and 5 people for my trip in January. It should pay for itself by the end of this trip. She even emailed me a full listing of every counter service, snack counter, TS place that I would get the discount. and it includes alcohol? Sign me up! (No...I'm not a big drinker but I'm going to meet up with one of my friends that lives in FL and we're going to attempt to carefully Drink Around the World)

Hey, I read your other trips and I am so in for this one!! I love them!!

Oooh, my favorite thing to do at Epcot...drink around the world! I did that for the first time this past November. Yum, that is all I can say!!!

Yup! I'll definitely dress up for MNSHHP! If anything i'm going to wear the same Pirate costume that I'm wearing in my signature photo with Jack Sparrow. Better get my moneys worth!

Welcome over here LouDisney! I was debating on getting the Tables in Wonderland but after doing the calculations, for this trip is still works out better do get the free dining and then upgrade to the Deluxe for $32 extra a person per day. We're still saving a ton of money!

One week from today I'll hopefully have all my ADRs by now! I'm going to try to make them all (except Citricos..for some reason theres no online ADR link for it!) online and then just call an hour later for Citricos. I'm thinking I might actually redo my whole itinerary :eek Who knows though.

Is it really only 32$ to upgrade to Deluxe during Free Dining? That is an awesome deal! If thats all it costs I may need to do that!

Planning and re-planning adrs is part of the fun of trip planning!

Yup! You just pay the difference between normal dining and deluxe. I believe normal dining plan is about $40? and Deluxe is about $70, give or take a few dollars. We think it's totally worth it because then you get 3 TS meals a day WITH appetizer, plus 2 snacks a day, and you each get a refillable mug to use throughout your stay. I don't know if I'd pay $70 a day for it per person but at $32?! TOTALLY worth it in my opinion! :D
