Tomorrow is my day to make ADRs and I have come up with my list. Let me know what ya'll think.

Monday, May 24th(arrival day)
No plans

Tuesday, May 25th
'Ohana for dinner around 5:30


Wednesday, May 26th
Kona for dinner 7pm


Thursday, May 27th
Chef Mickey's for breakfast 8am
(this is Dallas' request)

Friday, May 28th
Grand Floridian Cafe for lunch 1 or 2 pm

Saturday, May 29th
No plans

Sunday, May 30th
Leave for home .

We usually don't plan park days because we like to park hop.

I am hoping I can talk Tyler and Amanda into going with us. We would have to get another room so that is why I am wanting the AP rates to come out. I am really disappointed in Disney in that they have not released any AP rates yet. They still have the fall special on the passholder site. I think it was pretty crummy of them to send out pin codes to some AP holders too. AP holders are already a smaller group so now they are pruning from the pruned. Next they will be sending them out only to people who were born on a Tuesday at 7:18, when Mars was in alignment with Jupiter, and Hailey's comet was crossing the Northern hemisphere, while the sun rose at 6:02am and set at 5:22pm .

you are soooo funny!

the ADR's look great! Good Luck! and I hope it all goes as planned...don't forget to book 5/6 now JIC Tyler and Amanda decide to join you...easier to reduce than to add

I wish you AP's would be released and that they would release the next special for April and May...I have some planning to do myself!

don't stay up too late!

Yes, he is that picky . It really is sad because I love to try different foods. He would prolly eat the steak and shrimp, but he won't touch the veggies. It surprised me when we were dating. I mean a Southerner that doesn't eat fried okra

I was going to try and stay up some, but I am about to pass out sitting here now......

GRRRRRRRRR-------------You might know I was born at 7:19 .


You are right, I should probably go ahead and book for 6 because Amanda will want Matt to go too. I have tried several times since midnight, but the date line still shows 11/24/2009.

Hope you got your ressies Dana! Your choices look really good!

I've been waiting on the 4/3 that's been rumored forever too. They announced they were up 18% last quarter about two weeks ago so who knows. I saw yesterday where they raised ECV, Wheelchair, & Locker rental for 2010. They probably raised stroller rental too (since they go together typically) but it wasn't mentioned in the newsletter that I get on Tuesday. Maybe they don't think they need to offer discounts?

Thanks Leanne.

I didn't want to do the 4/3 again because we won't need the tickets, but if it came out cheaper to go with it I would. I know they had released the 4/3 last year before now.

I saw that report too and the price increases on the ECV, wheelchair and lockers. The strollers went up this year so they may raise them again next year. I don't understand why the prices of these rentals keep going up. Disney already owns them, they don't require any more maintenance this year than they did last year and the workers aren't getting raises. We are in the middle of the worst recession this country has ever seen and prices keep going up . The increase in profit was due to ESPN and TV syndicated sales. The parks and resorts actually FELL 17%. For the fiscal year the parks and resorts fell 25%. I found this in TheDailyDisney.com.

Iger goes on to say "Booking trends have actually picked up significantly since we announced the discount, and they had been somewhat sluggish before we did,” Iger said, adding that Disney isn’t worried that customers will become accustomed to promotions. “We have not had a problem weaning consumers off discounts in the past.”
The "discount" he is referring to is the 4/3. I could be wrong, but it sounds to me like they aren't really going to offer much more. That the "weaning" process has started in the form of shortened times on discounts and added restrictions. That goes back to my post about pin codes.


WARNING, WARNING, WARNING
I can't believe I am becoming so cynical about Disney . I need some pixie dust and I need it fast .

OK, I took a deep breath and I think I'm gonna be good now . I was about to fall off that soap box.

so, how did booking of ADR's go! and yes I agree with all just mentioned above about the rentals; I think it is to offset the deals they keep offering...get you there and than hit you in other places.

BTW: just To side with Dale on one thing; not crazy about fried okra or pickles...but love fried cauliflower

Have a great day today! for your Thanksgiving!!

I have gotten the two pins. I am booked at Pop on one that I found the day before it expired . I am hoping for the AP pin because I want to upgrade to CBR or maybe, just maybe a deluxe. Dale is partial to CR, but I want AKL or WL.

Ladies, I stayed up till 3am to try and get what I wanted and the system would not recognize my reservation number . I was really getting antsy. I got up at 8:30 and I was able to go right in and make my ADRs . I am going to post them. I made a change, for which I am famous .

I made them . I have never rented a locker at the park, but last year we rented one at TL. We rented a wheelchair for Dallas one year because his asthma was REALLY bad and he would get short of breath after walking more than 10 minutes. We rented a stroller several times. I think it is bad that they hit people like that. Ticket prices are already out of this world.

YOU DON'T WHAT? I LOVE fried dill pickles, yummmmmmmm. I haven't had any in a long time though. I have never tried fried cauliflower, but it sounds great. I saw something on the Food Network about a place that breads and deep fries bacon, boy you can just feel your arteries slamming shut......


HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY. I hope ya'll have a wonderful day.

I guess you can tell I went ahead and made the reservation with Amanda and Tyler in mind.........lol.
I stayed up till 3am trying to make them, but the system was messed up. I decided to change the Kona to Le Cellier, since we are eating at 'Ohana, I didn't want all of our ressies to be at resorts. I know if we want Kona we can most likely get it anyway because they are never full.

Yes, I'm glad it is all done. I couldn't believe everything was so wide open too. I didn't have a problem getting the times I wanted, the only one that wasn't the exact time was the Chef Mickey's.
