Oh how annoying - I hope it all works out for you!

It's exciting now you have your tickets though

Wow- fingers crossed you will hear from them soon! Even if you get the money back (which I'm sure you will), it's frustrating to have things up in the air.

I had to laugh when I saw the Disney response email you received- I had a similar situation of no one reading my email carefully! I'd sent an email to the Tour department about a confirmation number for our Happiest Haunts Tour, and got a response from the Dining department saying they'd get back to me soon. It seems we have found the one chink in our 'perfect' company!

Very excited for you as you have your APs now....as someone who has never had one, I have to ask.....what do they look like? Are they a card like a credit card? Do you get fun mail from Disney through the year? Am I jealous much??? Absolutely!

Hi all!

So, still waiting to hear back from Disney in regards to the double up on the annual passes. If I do not hear from them by the end of the week I will be calling directly and not hanging up unitl I get the matter sorted! I will be nice of course..........I am sure they will see it was all a misunderstanding. Both lots are in exactly the same names and even Disney I am sure get that I don't need 2 each for the excat same period of time!

zanzibar138 - a tad annoying, but, you are most definietly right........WE HAVE DISNEYLAND TICKETS

monkey30 - well fancy that, the very same email. That confirms my initial thoughts that it was indeed a generic email that went out to everyone who sent a message to the ticketing department. As long as you get your tickets, everything will be fine.....................I have 2 spare at the moment, maybe you could have those

Staceycs - You know what they say, a picture speaks a thousand words so here is what an AP looks like!!!

This what the printed e-ticket looks like....



You then take that e-ticket to the turnstiles where they exchange it for another ticket which you then take to the AP processing building in exchange for one of these.......

Front



Back



They take your pic, process the card and you are ready to go! It is exactly the same size as a credit card.

I think I cried when I got this one, and I will probably do the same this year too!!!

And as for Disney emails, we may just have found the "chink" indeed!



Stay tuned for the next exciting episode

And now for some Disney magic.................( I hope!!! )

I just couldn't wait until the end of the week so I called Disneyland this morning and spoke to a wondeful cast member by the name of Linda!
We had a very nice chat and she went on to tell me that I was not alone in buying and doubling up on annual passes. It seems there were a number of like minded Disney fans who did not want to miss out on buying passes before the ticket price increased!
So, I have been assured that there will be no problems at all getting refunded and to keep an eye on my credit card statement. Linda also said they will probably just pop it back into my account without telling me first!

I am really glad I rang and she seemed to know exactly what would happen and even quoted other times it had happened so I am sure this will all be resolved

Ok, some planning news..................

I have a book that I am writing everything down in with dates required for bookings, ADR's etc.

I have just discovered today that I am able to purchase the Disney Photo Pass CD before we go online and I will save $50.00 in doing so
That has most definitely been added to the list!

I am also making a detailed list of places I would like to eat as there have been so many places we have always wanted to try and for whatever reason just did not get there. After all, it's all about the food......

So far we shall be dining at -
The Cheesecake Factory - have never been
The Rainforest Cafe - have only been to the one in Las Vegas
Mimi's Cafe - this is a more than once place as we love it......especially the breakfast!
iHop - also liked this one
Dennys - have never been
PF Changs - my favourite USA restaurant although I did promise DH I wouldn't go without him.......

(special note to self to add gym membership to list of things to do upon return )

We shall also be visiting the Pirates Dinner Adventure for one evening meal
I want to wait until the party dates come out for the Halloween parties at Disneyland so I can book some of these restaurants on the nights the park closes early. I asked the nice cast member this morning on the phone and she said they hadn't been informed of the party nights yet.

I am also still tossing up going in to Los Angeles for the day. There are a few things that we want to check out that we missed last time. If I can get a bus that is not a tour to drop us off and then pick us up again, I am thinking we just might! DD would really like to do the Warner Bros studio tour so have been looking at including that on the LA day too..........decisions, decisions!!!

Shall also be dragging ourselves away from DL for a whole day at Universal studios. ( yep a whole day away from DL !!! ) I will do this on a party day too! I do love those shops they have just outside Universal and DD especially loves Hot Topic and of course we must have Popcornopolis!

Have all the M and M tubes now for the pressed penny money. I have little labels for the tubes too that are really cute! I read a good tip somewhere to place 2 quarters then a penny all the way from bottom to top and then you are always ready to make your next one. I have tons of change here already so this should not be a problem. Just another thing we decided to collect on the last trip!!!

We also bought the Disneyland pressed penny book, but will be needing another as this one is full. I have even got a complete list and map of where all the PP machies are located and we can check them off as we get them!

Well, that's about it for now. Don't forget to say hi as I would love to hear from you! It makes it all the more worthwhile when you know there are people along for the ride!

Sounds like you are way ahead of me!! 120 days left... I am getting impatient!

As for the photopass, I think that the preorder is just for the WDW one, or are they the same? I know the WDW is way more expensive then the DL one (well there are ore parks right?) let me know what you find I will keep watching as well.

Great news about the refund! Loving your PTR, tiny bit jealous, but only in a good way! I have spent the day doing (what a way to spend a day off work!) so its nice to escape to your PTR. Looking forward to hearing more plans ... love the dining ideas so far. Our dining highlight of our last trip was Napa Rose, followed by water-side seats at Blue Bayou.

Hi Cassie!

Here you go!!!

http://www.disneynow.com/profile/web...bID=0x5910a44b

We had lots of fun collecting the pennies, but there were still some we missed. They also have some special ones that are released just for the holiday seasons so I am hoping they have some especially for Halloween! we got some great Christmas ones with the year stamped on them!!!

So, you will have to go back now to fill up your book...what a shame!!!!

Lots more planning to come!!!

Hi and thanks for stopping by and I am more than happy to be a form of escape!!! ( especially from the house work.....yuck!!! )

I was just sooooooooo happy to see that money back in my account. If it was just a few dollars I probably wouldn't have minded too much but it was over $900.00 after the foreign exchange fee was added on. It would have had a very big impact on the extra bits and pieces that's for sure. Very, very happy with the outcome!!! Gotta love those Disney folk

Ah yes, the food.......that is the list so far for where we would like to try outside of Disneyland . There is a whole other list for inside the parks

I am glad you mentioned the Blue Bayou as this is one of the places we will be visiting. DD is a pirates nut and it was the one place she wanted to go on our last trip but we never did get there. So, I am going to make it so for this trip!
I have perused the menu, but would love to know your thoughts! I have always wanted to try the Monte Christo but I know I can get that elsewhere and cheaper so am keen to try the Filet Mignon with the crab cake or the Bayou Surf n Turf! And a water side view shall be requested
What did you have and was it good if you don't mind me asking!?

The Napa Rose is something I would love to try eventually, but not on this trip.

Getting more and more excited...............still have to pinch myself sometimes that we are actually going..................146 sleeps to go in fact!!!
