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
Wow thanks for the info! That is a pretty awesome deal! I think we just might have to do that since we were thinking of doing a signature meal that was going to take 2 of our 3 ts credits!

Definitely a great deal You might have to call and upgrade soon though. I'm not sure how long until the free dining offer ends. But then again... Disney is getting MORE of your money so I'm pretty sure they won't complain too much if you call later? haha!

Thanks! I know they've extended the offer til bookings almost all the way through July. Our adr day is next week so if we can get everything I want we'll upgrade otherwise we'll just stay basic.

Yay for 1 week, well now less than 1 week! Mine is 1 week from today! I think I have my plans down now. NOw I am just deciding if I should call or use the new online system.

I'm doing both. I have an hour to use the online system to get as much as I can/want. Then if anything else, I'll call at 7am for the phone system.

Do you know how early you can do online? Can't you do it before the phone lines open at 7am?

That is awesome you were able to just upgrade from free dining to deluxe, and just pay the difference. That will totally be worth it. Hope you get all your ADRS!!!.

More Finalized Itinerary

so I was on an organization kick and with my ADR window opening up on Sunday morning, I figured I'd make a pretty document with all of my information...

I definitely also want to do MNSSHP... but not sure of the day. There's one in the middle of the week which I think would be best for crowd levels. The other one I can go to is on a Friday but I feel like that would bring up the crowd levels from the locals? Any thoughts?

Port Orleans French Quarter
2 8-Day Park Hopper Passes
Deluxe Dining Upgrade
September 26, 2009 - October 3, 2009

Conf #: *******
Cancellation # from old ressie: ****** (just in case!)
$2222.32 (was gonna hide this too but um..we all know what a Dis vacation costs!)
$200 already paid (deposit)

* helpful key:
Crowd: estimated crowd level
BP: best park
WP: worst park

I also included the hours for ALL the parks that day in case we want to hop. And if there's night parades (we dont do the day parades), wishes, or fantasmic, I put that too. Illuminations is every night at closing time of Epcot. The October dates I just took from the prior week in September so those will probably change.

Looks like a great plan!!! Good luck with your ADRs. I had some difficulties. But they actually turned out to be ok--my DH liked the choice #2 better than the choice #1 I'm anxious to see how it works with you using the online system and then calling if you need to!

Looks like a great plan! We're doing MNSSHP on Tues the 29th and I can't wait! I'm hoping it won't be too busy! Spending your b-day at MK is going to be wonderful!

WOW! You are a super planner. I never thought of estimating best and worst park.

We are going 9/22 through 9/28. There are two MNSSHP during our stay. One on Tuesday the 22nd and one on Friday the 25th. My plan is to go to the one on the 25th. Our plane doesn't get in until 4PM on the 22nd and I don't want to feel rushed.

We did the tea at the GF last year and it was so yummy. My favorite is the Erros tea. All the food is yummy, but they are very good about letting you substitute items. My kids didn't like some of the tea sandwiches and they switched them for a different kind.
