Also got all my ADR's after a rough start yesterday. I couldn't get the on line system to work at all so had to wait until 7 am to call. Got everything I wanted, even BOG although not the date I wanted. There was only one day my whole week that had a open spot.

We are doing:
Ohana - first time for dinner
Raglan Road
Teppen Edo
Crystal Palace - before park open
Grand Floridian Cafe
Rose and Crown - first time
Biergarten
Mama Melrosa - first time
Garden Grill - first time
Be Our Guest - first time

We are probably also going to do the Backstage Safari Tour. Any one else done this one?
Do you always know the park you are going to go to prior to making your ADR's?

Congrats on the free dining. Did you get a pin offer by email?? I'm booked and paid going from November 29th - December 5th at Coronado Springs. I have been looking daily for a pin so I can get free dining and upgrade to the WL or YC.

First 3 days at one hotel - Disney Port Orleans Riverside...sorry, I am a newbie (Again) and do not have the lingo down. Then AK for the remainder of vacation where the dining will begin....Is there anyway out of this
Yes, if you want to use free dining, you're stuck with 2 reservations. You have to check-in on a day that's in the promotional period. You can't just have it apply to part of your single reservation. The only "way out" is to push your dates back a few days so that your entire trip starts on the 11th.

Where are you finding free dining offered in November? My aunt and uncle are going November 1 and I haven't seen it posted. How do I help them get it? They are flexible on the start if their vacation so they xan move where needed

We're 172 days away today!! lol How about everyone? It feels so far away and now that i'm done with ADR's I feel like i'm at a stand still. Only thing left to book is our hotel for the drive down. Trying to drag that out so there's still something left to do. Wish time would go faster!

159 days for me! I don't think it's updated on the first post but we decided to add an extra day onto our trip and will now be there Nov 13-22. I'm so excited! I have definitely been using youtube to get my disney fix lately.

Luckily we have a busy summer planned, trips to the beach and other small things including birthdays, and plans to work some extra shifts at the hospital (gotta make that disney spending money somehow!). With such a busy summer I know it will fly by so I'm trying not to wish it away too much.

I thought we were the only ones watching other people's Disney Youtube videos!! LOL LOL We also DVR Disney shows when they are on and watch them over & over. It's sad, but it makes us happy! lol

And when it comes to the summer, I wish we could skip over all those parties and stuff. I honestly don't even want to go to the shore this year. I just want to go back to Disney! lol

After a frustrating overwhelming day for my 3 yr old DD, we're in the bathroom right after Wishes, listening to the announcement of "your wishes come true" and DD says "Momma, my wish came true!" "Really? What was your wish?" "To meet Cinderella!"

I try to plan the park days according to crowd calanders because my DH doesn't like the "packed like sardines" feeling. Our kids (in their 20's) did ask this time if we could try and not do so much park hopping for meals. We tend to eat in EPCOT alot so it is not always possible. This time I had to change a few days after making the ADR's because what I had planned didn't fit in with the days I was able to get reservations. We will still end up doing some hopping around but not as bad as last time.
