happy Planning

It was totally unplanned but turned out to be a great afternoon!

How about Beach / yacht Club?? You can dine at either Yachtsman or Cape May or Captains Grill, then after touring the resort head walk over to EPCOT!

There is also the Boardwalk with Flying Fish or ESPN (I don't take DH there cause we may never leave ).

Another option is just to tour BC/YC on an EPCOT day through the International Gateway, but plan on dining after you tour back at EPCOT.

Either way, Have fun!!!

Lisa where are you going to eat at AKL?

We're thinking of trying Sanna this trip. We had Boma on the last one and loved it.

Cape May breakfast is really good too. I prefer dinners over breakfast at Disney but we really enjoyed that meal.

Please note that pools are for use only for Guests of that specific Resort hotel. Lifeguards are on duty at select pools during daylight hours.

It's not Stormalong Bay but for a moderate price the pool at Coronado Springs is great.

I am also pretty sure that the All Star guests can use any of the pools on the All Star resort properties. Other than that, I believe that's all that are allowed. I'm sure somebody can come along and correct me if I missed another exception to the "pool hopping" rule.
Our last trip we were headed to dinner at The GFand we picked up a family of approx 8 people leaving Poly n the monorail. Guess where they were headed? The TTC to go back to their off site hotel after a nice day at the Poly pool!
I really had to bite my tongue for my family's sake!

Has anyone gotten any pins or codes for dates AFTER May 22nd? It's starting to stress me that that date seems to be the cutoff.....trying to remain calm

We've had Sanaa twice.....loved it both times, can't wait to go back next year! Would love to try Boma for breakfast one year, but we rarely take that much time out of the morning for a big sit down meal. Maybe when DH and I go alone!!

I have heard great things about Jiko, and plan on adding that one on in the future also.

That's the day we leave for Disney. We'll be there May 22-May 28... I've never received a pin code but I am hoping a GP discount becomes available during that time. We went to WDW last year around the same time and seem to remember free dining started the week after we left. We booked MUCH later though so maybe there were discounts earlier that I just missed ... hoping SOMETHING is available for us, really don't want to pay full price!

Wow! I had no idea! I had a CM suggest this theory of pool sharing to me back in 2009? Thanks for the info!

What dates did the free dining pin cover? I'd love to receive one of those pins!
