Going with my sis who has little kids and almost all our ADRs are characters meals so it's will be worth it I think even if we have to pay for it.

Do you other October folks already have a hotel ressie made?
Thanks.
We do. We are going whether there is a discount of any kind or not. My DH and I have always wanted to go at this time of the year for MNSSHP and Food & Wine. Any discount will just be a bonus.

All ADR's are made. I'm still hoping for a discount. There are 8 of going and a discount would be a huge help.

We're celebrating my college graduation and my birthday. So we're going no matter what but a discount would really help.

Does anyone know if I cancel the dining plan that I have now will I lose all my ding reservations?
You will not lose your ADR's if you cancel the dining plan.

You can always add tickets & DDP to RO discounts - we have done this on both of our previous visits.

Yes, I have my hotel reservation - Oct 18th - 28th at GF. Really hoping for a discount but will not change anything if I don't get one. I might have minor heart failure though

We were able to get BOG but not the day or time I wanted. I was pretty desperate though & took what was available. Keep checking, something might open up closer to your date.

Ouch, We're going Oct 19-26th. DH and I have always wanted to take the kids to MNSSHP... I just looked at the rates for the Poly on Disney's site. Ouch and Double Ouch. $446 for one standard room? Before tax? We've been wanting to try the Poly - and let the kids swim in the Volcano pool and watch the ELP (DH & I just love that hokey thing!)

But at those rates No Way. There will have to be a major room discount involved - or it will be Pop Century again all the way. Free dining would be okay, too - but we're not that big a fan of the Table Service meals... So, we'll just see.

You can add tix and DDP to a room only but it changes the payment terms, fyi. It becomes a package and must be paid in full at the 45 day mark, unlike RO which is paid in full upon arrival.

No, your dining plans are not depending on you having the dining plan. You would just need to pay out of pocket.

Are we able to make ADR's if we don't have a hotel reservation? I thought I had to wait until I had made my hotel reservation before I booked my ADRs. I am worried I won't get what we want because it is past the 180 day mark, however I can't make hotel reservations until Wednesday (bonus payday). It would be great if I can get my ADRs done now.

We're booked at POFQ from Oct 8 - 14. I'm excited because we'll be there on my birthday, which is the 9th. So cool! Plan to spend the whole day in the MK. Right now we've got a AAA rate on the room, but free dining would be nice, so fingers crossed.

DISers who have already gotten BoG ressies, when are you going? I have not been able to get one. At. All. I check daily, but no dice, it is booked solid during my stay.

If you are within the 180 day window for each date of your planned stay that you want ADRs for, you can make all of your reservations now. Anyone can make ADRs 180 days out. A resort reservation is not required.

We have our resort reservation since last August I think, but then rebooked a package in January through AAA. We are going Oct 18-27, and that is pretty much set in stone. We'll rebook if FD or a great offer comes out this summer, but for now we have about 15% off our room and tix. I would have been interested in upgrading or doing a split stay at BC/YC, but looks like there isn't much availability there now except for CL - probably due to F&W on the weekends. With the length of our stay it's not something we've budgeted for, so POR it is, maybe with AKL for 2 nights if we can swing it as things get closer.

However, that also allowed us to do the 180+10 ADRs on 4/22 and were able to get BOG on our +9 day. In talking to some CMs when we booked out F! dining package, it sounds like it's pretty much the only way to get BOG now - online 6am at the end of the +10, i.e., book it well into your vacation on the 1st day you are allowed to book. Seems so crazy. On the other hand I did spot CRT availability mid-week last week, so that might be easier to come by if it interests you or your kids. We are already doing Akershus and DS was opposed to another princess meal, so we lucked out on that.

Thanks. We have CM, CRT, F!, 1900PF, Akerhaus and CP. Maybe too much character dining for some but the trip is for the little ones. I am going to keep trying for BOG and maybe I will get lucky. If not there is always lunch.

If you end up at Pop you should book a dinner at the Cali Grill during fireworks and you can watch the electrical parade go by as well. We did this last year and it was fantastic.

One of our favorite places to watch fireworks too!

Right now, California Grill isn't accepting ADRs for October, because they are in the middle of a refurb. Rumors I've heard say it may not be open for October, but there is a thread you can subscribe to in order to watch for ADR's opening up again. Fingers crossed it opens for our trips!

I received a pin snail mail for dates up to 8/14/13. Has anyone heard of pins by email or snail main for dates in Oct or Nov, for room only? Hoping for something better than the AAA rate.
