I know the bus transportation is only from/to Disney property. However, are there any plans to have a Downtown Disney pick-up/drop-off - for those who are staying off-site, but would have late-night transportation available between DD and their hotel?

We have not worked out the specifics with the bus company yet as to where/when the pick ups and drop offs will occur. We have to wait until we have a full count of who will be using the transportation and where they will be staying.

The bus company is going to charge us extra per pick-up and drop off location so we are trying to minimize the number of these we have. If people are staying in one resort area and can walk or take transportation to 'centrally located' resort we will try to do that.

The likelihood of having a seperate pick-up/drop at DD is slim.

Thanks, John. I booked 2 WWoHP tickets, but my friend is staying at Bonnet Creek - making her return transportation more difficult. I would book the bus just for myself, but the info says everyone in your party has to use the bus.

John, I noticed my hotel on the transportation sign up is showing as French Quarter, but I have changed to Riverside. Is this a problem? I already sent in my payment.

Thanks,
Kim

Hmmm... That's not going to help much with an event at Universal. Are there things going on at the Parks that I haven't heard about yet?

I sent my reservation and deposit to Dreams Unlimited a week ago today. They said it would be a few days before I got confirmation, but I've been having trouble with my email account. I sent DU an email yesterday and still haven't heard back. Is this normal or do you think its my troublesome email? Thanks!

We have your reservation request. These particular rooms are being booked through group space held at Universal so the process is a little slower than 'normal'.

Rest assured you have a room - we just need to get the confirmation back from USO - I'm sure that will happen sometime this morning.

Thanks for your patience
John

John,

Is there still space available for this event? I just got back from the DIS meet in Texas and I'm now jealous of everyone going. Tell me there's room. Puhleeze.

I'm wondering the same thing. I have some vacation time to burn and am contemplating a solo trip to the World the weekend of DAP.

I got a promotion in July and now that I am not in retail I can actually take vacation time during the holiday season! So of course I'm bursting at the seams to see WDW all decorated for the holidays and MVMCP and CP - what a better way than to do it solo with 600+ DISers in town the same weekend!

The best way I can answer that is if this page works we still have open enrollment space at the event - http://www.dreamsunlimitedtravel.com...ns/DAP2011.cfm

If it doesn't then the only way to get a space at the event is by booking a room within our group space at USO - http://www.dreamsunlimitedtravel.com...s/dap-2011.cfm

It also looks like we are going to have to close registrations soon - mayeb 10/15 - as we need time to get credentials produced. I will try to post an exact date when I know it but if you want to come to this event you have to act now!!!
