Well I just called. Apparently there is some communication problem as to what is and is not accepted now. Waiting on a call back from someone in the know. If I can't get Victoria and Alberts then that may make me rethink Platinum. Have to rerun numbers. Stay tuned.

Interesting that the 2010 Platinum Package brochure still shows V&A as a valid option. I would definately pursue this since that, and the night cruises, would be my biggest reason to upgrade from Premium to Platinum - especially for the $50 per person per night difference!!!

Deluxe parasailing both afternoons
breakfast at Boma
Supper at Hoop-Dee-Doo
supper at Jiko
viewing area for both Wishes and Illuminations

Wanted to do La Nouba but it is dark both days.

We are going to be sooo tired when that second day is done - I am already looking forward to that king bed at Kidani !
Sorry to be a bearer of bad news, but be advised: Wishes & Illuminations crusies, as well as Fantasmic reserved seating, are ONLY offered on the PLATINUM package, not the Premium, which will affect your "viewing area for both Wishes and Illuminations"

Would also encourage you to take the Epcot Segway tour prior to the one at Ft Wilderness - unless you have done Segway tours before as the FW one is off-road . Yes, they do give training, but having a feel for the handling of the units will add to the pleasure of the off-road experience.

OK. Got a call back. Girl was confused at first. It is included at the normal table on PLATINUM. You of course have to pay for all drinks which I knew. Also if you want chef table it is $75 more per person. So all good to go.

I don't think the poster mentioned the Wishes and Illuminations cruises, she just said viewing spots, which is in included in the premium plan.

Ah-ha! I did not see that on the brochure ... can you let me know where since that is something we DEFINATELY wish to do. Thanks!

UPDATE: This info is not in the brochure but available to resort booking staff (got transferred to them from WDW-TOUR). She gave me the info on both Wishes and Illuminations as to where the seating areas are, when ressies can be made and who to contact to make the ressies. Haven't tried to call yet but hope to get our plans set and call them tonite!

I posted that on the last page, I could have saved you the call! Glad you got it sorted out for you though.

The Illuminations viewing location is the pier at Morocco, according to the castmember at WDW-PLAY. For the MK fireworks the viewing area is the seating area to the right and below the Plaza restaurant location. My only concern about this is that this location is normally set aside as a smoking area.You have to make a reservation for these and will be given the standard 12 digit confirmation number. She said a voucher for your party's viewing will be included with your package contents at check-in, and will have to be presented to gain access to the viewing area.

Have any DVC members questioned Member Services to see if the Premium or Platinum plan can be added to a DVC reservation made by a member on points ? My gut feeling is no , as the only additions listed on the DVC members site only list the various magic your way dining packages. No mention of Platinum/Premium.

We've done the Epcot Segway experience before. My daughter and I took to it like a fish to water, and my darling wife did quite well. We all found it to be quite enjoyable except for a little soreness at the bottom of your feet from all the standing in one spot on the unit for so long. We are looking forward to both - Epcot WS empty was quite interesting and I've heard many good comments about the Ft. Wilderness tour.

One other comment to add - I am enjoying the feeling of sharing and community in this thread. It's really been fun to read, and very gratifying to have so many willing to help so many others.

I wish I could do the epcot segway tour, but there was no way to fit it into my schedule. Instead we're doing the Ft. Wilderness tour. I hope I don't crash everywhere!

Oh man. Now I really want to do the "off road" Segway tour at Ft. Wilderness. But time wise I can't do it since I want to do both the Keys to the Kingdom tour and the EPCOT WS Segway tour.

I guess maybe next time ...

I wonder if annual passholders can get a "ticketless" platinum package? Or would we have to purchase the one day park ticket?

Good Question! I wonder as well since that would surely be the deciding factor! we have APs and really don't want the 1 day passes if not necessary. Maybe I'll go to WDW online and see. I know you can't book the Premium with a room discount or at least not when I tried.
