Red face

We have a rough idea of what days we will be in which parks and where we are making our ADRs and it will help a lot once we are able to purchase our MVMCP tickets. I know we can make ADRs in June but slight changes might be made once the CP schedule is announced. I hope we don't have to. We'll be there 12/7-12/15.

We know what we want for our ADR's. I've got them listed in my pretrip report. Now just hoping we can get them.

Thanks! I sent you a PM this morning. I need more disney fan(atics) as my friends since the rest of the people I know are really sick of me making everything all about Disney!

How's that work? Do you still get to pick your flight times? I'm waiting for Airtran to release their flights for this time sometime in May so I can compare and then book (and I think DH has enough points that at least 1 or 2 of us can fly free with AT). Once I get my flights book, I may need to adjust my dates and then I'm contemplating switching from the Dolphin to POFQ.....decisions, decisions.

With Hotwire you see everything flight times and airlines, it just show you who has the best deal. I started looking at prices a few days ago, I thought I would wait for SW to open my dates. I checked 3 different times yesterday and Low and behold the last check was lower than what I paid for our last 2 flights to MCO.

Have you stayed at the Dolphin before? Does POFQ cost more than the Dolphin?
I need to book or 3 nights somewhere not sure decisions, decisions.

We are booked at POR for Dec 1-9! We can't wait. It's a huge surprise trip for our kids. We are driving down the Saturday after thanksgiving and staying at a hotel near the beach. And then will get up early and get to Disney no later than 9 or 10. .

No idea about adr's my husband is currently in Afghanistan and wants to wait until he gets home to look at restaurants and plan!

Never stayed at the Dolphin before. I initially picked it because of the location, but with the resort fee & parking (even with JUST the resort fee only), it's still more than POFQ. AND, if we get lucky and free dining comes out for the week after Thanksgiving, then POFQ would work out perfect. I'm torn. I have booked POFQ EVERY single time we've gone to WDW (except the first) and then I get a PIN and I've upgraded to WL and AKL. I think I just need to book it and stay there because I'm obviously drawn to it. As soon as Airtran releases their flights and I can compare them to JetBlue and see what DHs reward points will get me, I will book flights and then rearrange my resort booking

Oh, I really love to be in a Boardwalk Villa, at least a 1BR......I'm so wishy washy!

You'll have to share how you surprise them and their reaction to it.

Just booked for December 6th-11th!

I am soooooooooooooooo excited I could burst, and I don't know how I'm going to be able to wait until it's here!

Luckily, it's my sister going with me, and she's as much of a fanatic as I am. I was at her house this past Saturday and we literally spent all day on the computer looking up Disney stuff and having a blast.

We made tentative plans because we don't know where the EMH are for December yet. We know where we want to eat and what times, but nothing will be set in concrete until June when all the info comes out. Right now I'm paying for the Dining Plan, but I hope FD comes out as it will be a big help because I'm paying for the both of us.

Smile Por

My hubby and I have reservations made for POR Dec 8th-14th!!! So excited as it will be just the two of us. Have never been at Xmas time and are so looking forward to seeing all of the decorations. Have been reading some of the threads and it looks like we will be there during the cheerleading competition. Is it true that this year they will be having their home hotels be All Stars and CBR? Thanks for any info you can give me.
