How funny! I want to go do miniature golf instead of return to a park one afternoon! I know everyone is different but when I'm at WDW I love going to the parks every day even if it's only part of a day or atleast stay on resort and do something on site.

Oh well, I'm not gonna stress about it anymore but now I've gotta redo my trip plans to add this space center/"look at the beach" day.......
I hope everything works out for you and she for some reason backs out On the other hand the Space Center could be interesting

Has anyone done the Fantasmic Dinner package, We have been trying to see Fantasmic for a few years now, but never catch it since we already were doing stuff on those days.

My wife wants to make sure we do it this year.

In the package, it says you can use your DP, but is there a extra fee, we would most likely eat at Hollywood & Vine, but I'm not sure how the package works

I'm not aware of any dolphin show, but I know if you go upstairs to the manatee tank you can speak to one of the workers. They have lots of interesting information. And the song that plays up there is hilarious!

I never heard of it either, the thread I found it on is titled --------- Is the live dolphin show still in Epcot? ----------- it leans toward that they do have one, but I can't confirm it

Are you making them online or calling? I think online is faster. What are your top choices?

When making ADR's online can you do it 24hrs a day or is it between a certain time Last year I think I made them kind of late at night, I could be wrong

I think you can make them anytime of day once you are in your 180 day window.

I have been busy all evening crunching numbers for DP vs paying out of pocket. I know pretty much where and what we'll eat each day. The DP will save us about $40. We decided that wasn't worth giving up flexibility.

I was concerned that we wouldn't order what really wanted at some of the higher end restaurants. So we decided to purchase a Disney gift card before we go that will pay for the majority of our meals. That way we won't worry so much about the expense since it's already paid for.

If you have a Disney Visa you can use your rewards dollars towards dinners, we paid for all our ADR's that way a few years ago, The big trick with using the visa card is to pay it off every month, that way it is like free money

Been doing that since we got it. We treat my Visa card as a debit card. I use it for everything and even go so far as to enter it in the check register at the time of purchase.

I could use my rewards but I guess I'm selfish. I use the rewards to pay for my solo trips.
