Arrive almost an hour late, rental went smoothly. Drive just about an hour to get to Paradise Pier (traffic). We get there, with reservation confirmation in hand, and realize right away there's a problem, since PP way no clue we are supposed to be staying there. We spend over a 1/2 hour in the lobby, observing other families check in. Long story short, there was some type of mix-up and despite our confirmation, we were never meant to stay at PP. I'get done EXTENSIVE research on MAW trips to DL, and just about everytime the MAW family stays insure at PP, or Grand Californian. We were embarassed and saddened upon our understanding that we wouldn't be staying there. Our kids were exhausted, frustrated and also deeply disappointed that we had to pack our van up and leave.

Anyone else ever experience or hear of a situation like this??? Hard to plead one's case to the emergency hotline without sounding ungrateful to what should still amount to a wonderful experience.
Oh my gosh!!!!!!

What did they do?!?

I really, really hope it gets better for you guys very soon!

Here is my link and I wanted to get it on the first page of "Waiting for our Dates".

I read the instructions but I just don't get it. I think I'm tired.

MAW Help please! My daughter has been accepted into MAW and all she wants to do is go to Disney! Our wish grantors are coming over next week! I was wondering how far out for dates should we give them? If it was her choice we'd go tomorrow! Thanks for your help and I hope to get our story up tonight!

They'll want you to give them 3 dates you'd like to go. We met with our Wish Grantors in early October 2011 and our first choice dates were February 27-March 3rd and we got the dates we wanted. I'd say you'd probably want to go at least 3 or 4 months out. Unless there is a medical reason to do them super soon. We didn't find out we had our dates until the 46 days before leaving. So like early January we found out for sure, but we also had the holidays mixed in there too. The wish grantors might know too, seems like ours told us what dates would be really hard to do.
