It just works for us (besides, having the kitchen, the kids can have pizza, they're DiGiorno addicts, and we have a full size fridge which is awesome).

So, no free dining for us, but still getting a wonderful discount.
That's amazing reminds me of the good old days when AP discounts were 40%
What a great deal

Congrats on AKL Jambo it's such a beautiful and peaceful resort. Their CL still sends us a Christmas card every year and our last stay was in 2003.

I know how you feel 66 days for us and it's dragging. I started having the pre trip dreams where I get to the airport and can't find our tickets or our luggage gets lost or we left something important behind

Yes! They are most definitely breakfast food! As a matter of fact, I ate Tastycake cupcakes (chocolate filled, of course) for breakfast yesterday morning.

What is most frustrating about today is I'm afraid it's going to effect my leaving in November. PLEASE!!!

Maybe when DH gets home I'll hand him a suitcase and say, let's leave now and drive down.

Ok thanks for letting me vent!
I'm better now.

Thanks! I needed that. Tough day but it's ok now. Just made me really anxious to get away for a week. But nervous what will happen while I'm away.
Deep breaths and letting go.

I sure hope you are right about that 50%! I'm in the same boat. Currently have 40% on an AoA suite but really hoping Disney announces the 50% with discounted dining soon for November. When they released the latest increment ending on 26 October (one week short of what I need) I just about died. I am planning and budgeting as if it wont happen but if it does I will save $500

Called Dining tonight to see if I could make changes to 4 of our dining reservations. MDE acts funny sometimes, rather the just saying nothing is available it tells you to call. Of course I couldn't change anything, so frustrating. I really think the parks are going to be much more crowded with the free dining.

I'm pretty worried about the crowds as well.
And I've also never been able to make reservations using the MDE app, it always tells me to call. : (

It seems like we should have heard some from the beginning of the month being able to do so by now...

I'm always excited to see an update in the app store for MDE on my iPad, as like today. Alas, no noticeable MDE changes (like MB!). 54 days to WL and still nothing. But I won't start to get disappointed until, umm, October 17. Or 25th. Maybe November 1?! I'm an optimist!

Thinking I will need to be trying the Glow With the Show Ears though, depending on the $$$. The video (from DL?) is supper cool!
