I can't make an ADR for Spoodles or Kouzzina either. I had to call Disney Dining about something else and the wonderful CM checked into it. Her supervisor said that neither is in the system yet (this was last Wednesday) because they are not certain how long the changeover will take. As soon as they know definitively that Kouzzina will be open it will be made available for booking. At least, that is what I was told!

Well, we LIKE the late ressies as we are on West Coast time so a 9:00pm dinner ressie is like eating at 6:00pm on our body clocks. I bet I would have been out of luck if I wanted something between 5:00 and 8:00.

Thanks for the get well wishes. Not exactly how I thought I would spend my 4th of July. The funny thing is I started getting sick just before midnight last Friday night. I was in severe pain and yet in true DIS fashion I looked up at the clock and said out loud, "Gosh darn it! I only have to wait 3 more hours and I can make my ADR's!! I wish the pain could hold off a bit longer!!" Ended up I had a surprise hernia and part of my small bowel had gone inside the hole and was being constricted, which explained the lovely non-stop vomiting ! 4 hours of surgery and 5 nights in the hospital and I am ready to go to DISNEY WORLD!!!

Looks like we will have lot's of company at the Sports! We are going to try for a room in the basketball building per my son's request.

Gina
Wow! Glad your surgery went well.

I just booked our Oct mini trip from 10/2-4 at CSR with AP rate. We became PHs during our last trip for our birthdays. I also made a few ADRs.

I am so ready to get away from reality and get some pixie dust sprinkled on me and see the WDW magic again. We will be there Oct 3 to 8 and going to MNSSHP on 6th & I cannot wait for it to get here.

Me = ride wimp...I'm fine watching from the ground so Universal does not really interest me but SeaWorld does as I have never been and love ocean critters.

Hayden (16) = increasingly more daring and brave and is looking for some adventure rides and wants Universal.

Jensen (13) = is somewhere between me and brother. If he sees bro do it once or twice he will cave. He too wants to go to SeaWorld.

Verdict: We are going to buy the SeaWorld/Busch Gardens combo ticket, which includes free transportation to Busch Gardens in Tampa. Hayden will get his thrill rides between the two parks and Jensen and I can wave at him as he goes by!! Plus, the 2 park/unlimited admission during your stay combo ticket is still cheaper than Universal tickets. Some day we will embark upon Universal Studios, just not in October.

I betcha' didn't really want to know all of that !!

Good advice. The online reservation system sure makes the process easier! If I happen to be up at 2:00 am and want to check on an ADR I can!! Just last night I was able to secure a dinner ressie at Sci-fi whereas previously, only lunch slots were open. People change plans and cancel things all the time.

Of course I did!
Universal is actually a pretty fun place to visit! You'll have to go when Harry Potter Land if finished.

I love Sea World and never feel like I have enough time to see everything I want to. I just get plain exhausted there! I would like to see Busch Gardens too. That'll be a fun trip!

You had me at Harry Potter! Hopefully they will do some cool rides or something. I love Busch Gardens and Sea World, haven''t been there in ages!

In 2007 I found printable Disney countdown calendars. I cannot remember where I got them from. Does anyone use particular countdowns???

Last time I did the months with the Disney pics on them 2 months out and we crossed off the days. I also got a huge Mickey helium baloon the week of our trip.
