Is everyone as excited as I am that it's Friday? I've had one of those weeks Oh well, it's over and I can't wait for a beautiful weekend, at least they're saying it's going to be a beautiful weekend...we all know how wrong the weatherman can be though, don't we?

A few weeks before I started this PTR it was time for us to make our ADR's. My darling sister was in charge of that but when she went to do it, she found out because of the way she had booked with DVC we could only do 2 days the first go around and wait for the rest of them. So on the day we were supposed to make the rest of them, she was scheduled to work at 715am so I got up at 6am to make them...I know...i"m a giver, what can I say

So up I got, turned the coffee pot on, and settled down at the kitchen table with the cordless phone. I called and got the sweetest person on the other end that I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with at WDW! I told her we were DVC members (note how I said we) and that I needed to make some ADR's, gave her our confirmation number and we were off!! She told me we would go through all our ADR's see what times we could get as close to ours as possible and once that was all done she would give me all the confirmation numbers!

We were having a great time, laughing, chatting about the restaurants, you know, an overall great experience. We did the last ADR and she was giving me the second confirmation number when the phone fell, hit the floor, the back flew off and the battery out...yup the phone was dead Not gonna lie, I went into full panic mode!!!

I ran around the house looking for the other cordless and found it quickly thank the good lord!! I dialed, pretty much in tears at this point thinking I had lost everything we just did, when I hear the sweetest voice before it even connected say "Queen, is that you". I said yes...is that you? She said of course it's me I was waiting for you I believe at that moment I told her I loved her, that she was my new best friend and maybe told her she could have my first born Yup, I would have sold my soul at that moment

I sent Peg an email telling her what happened and she couldn't believe my luck...and neither could I. I said to her it has to be a good omen for our upcoming trip....at least that's what we're going with!!!

I will update again tomorrow...I just had to share that story with all my buddies!!!

Your sacrifice is an inspiration to all of us!

Does Jasmine know about this?

Seriously, who doesn't love a happy ending? Sounds like you got one of the good ones to make your ADRs. I remember (6 years ago) I got up to make ADRs starting with CRT (yes DDs got to eat in the castle but I digress). As soon as the phone connected, I blurted out the particulars. The lovely young lady on the other end was all business and got us our table. She then said, "So now that we've got all that out of the way... Good morning! How are you today?!" I burst out laughing.

I used to love having breakfast in the castle when Jasmine was little! That's a great story...it's like they know that's why everyone is up at the crack of dawn calling

Im sorry Jasmine was sick - but relieved to hear that she was feeling better. A few old Disney flicks and some gingerale always cure me at least!



Im SO happy you guys got to have a DisMeet up there. Pancakes and good times with friends? Super jealous- makes me want to try and get one going around here in MA!

Ill post a few pics & get back to my TR- but cant wait to read more. SO GLAD youre back on the PTR circuit!!!

hugs to you & Jasmine xxoo

Ha!! I have to agree!! you really are the popular girl in DISboards High School !!! Not that I'm jealous or anything!!

I'm off to Grand Forks and Fargo for the Weekend!!! Let's hope the weather holds out!!

Debbie

I had that same feeling of terror when I was on the phone with a cast member making plans for this last trip. I use something called a Magic Jack that has one end that plugs into my laptop and the other end has a phone jack so I can make a receive calls through my computer and it usually works great, I have a Maine phone number and can call anywhere in the States for free. The day I was making reservations the internet was not the greatest and I lost the call halfway through! I was in a complete panic when my phone rand and it was the cast member I had been speaking to! They have caller ID! What a relief that was!
Can't wait to here what ARDs you got!!

Queen - that's a great story about the phone. I shouldn't laugh at your distress, but that is totally something that would happen to me!

Karma baby! You get what you give -- and I'd say you have some good karma stored up for such an occasion Glad you got through to the same CM. That kind of thing can make ALL the difference. I had a great Dining Reservations CM recommend the specialty dining at Cali Grill for my anniversary diner - NEVER would have thought of that, but I sure took credit for it with DH

Have a wonderful (and hopefully warm) weekend -- XO

Yay!!!! Glad it all worked out ( And that Jasmine does not have to be sacrificed)

I really enjoyed the photos of your DISMeet. Nothing like a table full of happy Disney people.

I never thought of them having caller ID...I wonder if she was trying to call me at the exact same time....that would actually make complete sense!
