Next stop in a few days......ADR for our Pre Cruise time in WDW. If I don't get into Be Our Guest, I may have to bring a picture of my Family room full of Beauty and The Beast collectibles to try to bribe someone! Deb
Thanks for the ADR reminder. We're marking the calendar for Oct 3rd week.
I'm not planning anything for Sept 28th yet. Can't seem to decide if a sit down is a good idea on a travel day in. Plus we're concierge and want to enjoy it!!

Patiently waiting for the rest of your report.........
thanks Kris. We loved PO-R too. Wow! your April cruise is just around the corner. it will be here before you know it.

We just booked our overnight stay on the way down 9/27/13 at Disney's Hilton Head. Got a DvC discounted cash rate for a 2 bdrm of $225.75. Can't beat that!!

I have also marked my calendar to make my ADR's. The only night I am sure of the Sept. 28th, we are staying at Saratoga Springs that night, close to Downtown Disney, so we will be dining at Raglan Road!!

I have to share this, my 15 year old son just came into my room to ask me for something, so I asked him "where do you think daddy and I should eat when we're in Disney?" He looks at me and says "So you're abandoning me and asking me for dining suggestions while you do it?" I guess I am!!!

Since I am not sure about doing parks after and the Food & Wine Festival going on, decesions........

See my Daughter in Law on Wheel of Fortune this Thursday. Can't say if she won, but she is very excited in this picture with Pat Sajak. You might see my son at the end of the show Deb

Just a quick update

Looks like Iron Man Mark is headed back to WDW for his 2nd Disney College Program. he's been accepted in QSFB for Fall Advantage May 28 - Jan 3.

This comes right after he'd just been hired by Aramark to work concessions at the Phillies games in Citizens Bank Park this season.

Wish I had his choices!!!

He's on our cruise so time off will be a factor. I guess that will all be worked out. He wants to take his old pickup which I'm not sure will survive the drive so the plan is to hitch a ride on the autotrain and head down. JQ and I are hoping to tag along. We'll see.

YEAH for Mark! Tell him congratulations. I give a thumbs up for the AutoTrain. Keep us updated on his decisions. If you decide on the AutoTrain, and you have an AAA membership, be sure to use it when booking and you'll get a 10% discount on the passanger portion of the fee.

For those staying in WDW before or after the cruise, if there is a certain restaurant that you know you want to eat at, you may want to make an ADR. They can be made 180 days in advance.

Congrats to iron man. I don't think my daughter is ever leaving the program. She is trying for another extension.

So happy this morning
Got our Be Our Guest reservation for 9/25 and Sci Fi for 9/26. Did not make anything else for the Friday and Saturday, since we plan on grazing at the Food and Wine Festival

Quick service food and beverage. It's a job classification for the CM's who work in food service positions other than restaurants. On his last tour Mark worked at the All Star Music food court. He is hoping to get placed in a park this time around.

Hi Nat,
I got your private message, but I can not respond to it because I am new to this and I don't have the ability to reply to any private messages. I also sent you a message on your FB account, but that message got dumped into the "other" mailbox so I don't know if you have seen that either. Can you try to respond to my facebook message. Thanks.
Lisa

Good morning,

I have gotten inquiries about adding a bus drop-off at the airport on our way back to WDW after the cruise, since we pass right by it on our way to WDW. I checked into it and the surcharge would be $40.00 split between all passengers using this stop. Right now there are 8 available seats and 2 people interested in the MCO stop. If 6 more join the surcharge would only be $5/seat. Please let me know if you are interested ASAP.

We are currently scheduled for a 9am pick up time at the port but I was thinking that 8:30am would work better. Let me know what you think.

mdwoodman,
Could you double check for people interested in the cabin crawl. I believe someone may have posted on the FE thread for the cabin crawl.
