Hello everyone 81 pages I feel like I am late to the party... But better late then never! This trip was thought up three days ago. I am going to wdw in October my cousin and I will be running in the tower of terror ten miler. My DH got sort of jealous we are doing a five day girls only vacation, so he tell me that since the boys are a little older (1 1/2, 2 3/4) by the time we go we should leave them with there darling Grandparents and have our honeymoon, which we never had because we got married and could not get time off and the the babies started coming. So it's safe to say we don't get much adult time. We have been with the kids in December, January and May. Our APs end in December not that we need a reason to visit.....

We have stayed at Pop Century, Old key West, Animal kingdom Lodge, and offsite at Windsor hills so far.
I loved the romantic and charming feel of Old Key west so I choose it for our vacation. We will be visiting from November 13- 19th.

We have visited during the holidays before but this time choose November because I love celebrating Christmas early(I'm a Christmas baby) I went the second week of December last time and I felt like I had a million things to do when I got home. So I think we made the right decision by going before the holidays.

I have ADRs all done... I tried for BOG but they were gone pretty quick. Got all of our other places just fine... Via Napoli, Hollywood brown derby, ohanas, konas, 50s prime time, raglan road, whispering canyon cafe, crystal palace.

I also have my parks picked out but we will probably be hopping around since some parks close early during these dates.
I have done the garden view high tea at the Grand Floridian with my mother for Mother's Day this last trip and it was such a great experience I am trying to get my hubby to agree to it or I might just have to do it myself.

If anyone has some romantic idea for things to do in Disney please share. Sadly we will not be coming back so soon after this trip because hubby is WDW out and he wants to wait till the kids are 4/5. Also he is interested in going to universal next time around because of all the expansions happening over there. But all is not lost we will be visiting California next year and spending 5 days of our trip at Disneyland

Hope everyone's trip is magical and will be reading all of the post hopefully I might be meeting some of you guys later in the year... Hope the time flys by!!

Has anyone else had trouble booking CRT for 11-23-13. Yest was my 180 days. Ea time I got it selected and found a time it would say server is busy. I called disney dining all day long and they couldn't either. Last cm said they would put it into IT that it was a systems problem and should be fixed by today. Well wrong. Still not fixed. Guess ill be back on the phone at 7.

been up since 4:50 central
server busy / unable to make reservation on all but 1 attempt since 5am
got through for 1 ADR - restaurant I wanted, bad time
iphone app would not allow +10, despite showing my ressie in my plans
no luck with old site so far
now on phone hold for 19 mins

EVERYTHING I WANTED had availability when I logged on this morning, as I sit on hold I watch all availability dwindling down to nothing




******update**************

Got everything I wanted by phone-in in a matter of minutes. Even WCC for Thanksgiving, which was not showing availability online. As a matter of fact, many of the times I was given by phone were not what was showing on website. CM even got me a better time on the 1 ADR I had managed to get online. Still don't know why my phone app won't let me see anything beyond 180 days.

Also, I was getting frustrated while waiting on hold on the dining line, so I called the hotel reservation line from my cell phone and explained how I'd been up trying for 1.5 hrs and had managed only 1 ressie. I asked if they could either get me help with their online system disaster or book my dining for me. They transferred me and I held for a minute or two, but someone picked up before my landline - which I had dialed in on first and was still on hold.

Crowd level for that day is also a 1.1 out of 10 and a recommended best park day

I just spent 25 mins on hold only to be told that crt had nothing loaded still after nov 22 I need the 23rd for breakfast for 10. This will be my niece and nephews first trip. I would settle for cp except my niece really loves the princesses and she was born with hypo plastic left heart syndrome basically half of a heart. Has had numerous heart surgeries and procedures so I really want to make this trip special.

I would book Akershus so that you have something. You can always keep trying for CRT. We did not care for the dinner at Akershus, but are trying breakfast there with some friends that have a young daughter wanting to meet princesses. It has very good princess interaction.

to everyone new! And another Philly person!! whoo-hoo!!!

I'm gonna make sure I get you all added to the first post (I have nothing better to do today). I tried playing the Wii for awhile, but my ADHD self quickly got tired of that. Maybe I'll try reading in a bit.

For all those that got their ADRs, congrats!!! I'm just so happy that mine are, technically, already paid for. I have $660 in giftcards for our meals and $190 in giftcards for the older two to use when we roam the parks (you know, if they want something to eat or get a souvenier without giving them cash).

I hope everyone has a great Memorial Day and for those of you who have served: thank you!!! I come from a military family and appreciate your sacrifice and dedication to our country.
