Thanks so much for the update! We (the folks with DVC res's and other prior arrangements, etc.) will be waiting patiently over here until it's our turn.

Thanks!!!

OK I have a DreamRes working on a quote for me for Disney - I would rather drive to Universal than stay at Universal. There is more to do at a Disney resort. Plus the fact that I have had to cancel a seminar for this summer this has freed up some $$$.

PLUS might make some other people happy.

Holly, just a bit of clarification to avoid confusion. Booking through DreamsRes won't get you priority into the event.

From John's first post:
Quote:
DreamsRES hotel bookings (i.e. Swan/Dolphin, Buena Vista Suites, etc) and bookings at third party hotels are not eligible.
Since you say you are asking for "a quote" (and DreamsRes doesn't really give "quotes") I think you mean you are asking for a quote in a Disney owned resort. If so, you should be fine.

So, John will get you to the party . . . but Teresa (who handles DreamsRes bookings) won't.

"Universal Orlando or WDW owned and operated resort"

Does that mean Swan/Dolphin are out? I booked 3 nights there already thru Dreams in anticipation and want to make sure don't have to change...

Correct - a (non-Disney owned) Swan/Dolphin reservation won't give you priority booking for the DIS party.

I'll be staying at the Swan because that's where I prefer to stay. I'll take my chances on getting into the WWoHP party, along with all the other non-Disney resort guests and those staying at DVC resorts.

To Clarify - I am working with a Dreams Unlimited Travel Agent to get a 3-day stay booked at a Disney Resort for that weekend.

SORRY FOR THE CONFUSION -

I'm now so confused as to what to do. I have a 3 day package with hotel and tickets booked through Dreams for December 8-12 at a little over $1000.

If I keep that reservation, do I still get priority opportunity to sign up for the December Event?

Would it be less expensive to do the discounted room rate and get tickets separately? I feel like Dreams already got me an awesome deal!

Thanks!

Is your 3-day package through DU for a "Disney owned and Operated hotel or a Lowes/Universal Hotel"? (Although Dec 8-12 is 4 nights...) If so, you should be good to go, because that covers the weekend of the DISapalooza event. The requirement is for you to have booked with DU for a "Disney owned and Operated hotel or a Lowes/Universal Hotel" for at least 3 consecutive nights, for the weekend of the event. Sounds like if that's what you have booked, you should be covered. Couldn't hurt to check with your DU travel agent...

We haven't made up our minds yet. Right now we are leaning towards booking a DVC room for our trip, except for the night of the party. We'll book something at Universal through DU for that one night, even though that won't give us any edge on getting into the event.

We just thought that we wanted to be convenient to the event - and more importantly - getting back to the room afterwards.

Just a fyi to all...remember that the event happens on the last day of Pop Warner. Many cheerleaders/football players will be at All Stars and POR/FQ through the weekend.

I'm adjusting my reservation accordingly and coming in on that Friday and staying later in the week. We are staying at CBR, pirate rooms.

It would be neat to have a list of people/hotels after sign-up!

I stayed in a pirate room at CBR for Scavenger Hunt/Destinaiton D! It was wonderfully amazingly themed.

However, I had a car with me and sooooo appreciated it at CBR! You can get lost there. We did going from our room to the foodcourt and back.
