FD doesn't impact me either; but I agree with Wanderlust. Gonna be harder to get ADRs for that period now.

We will cross the Pacific with Qantas together. Separate planes. Can you imagine the poor crew if we travelled together.
Wouldn't that be a hoot.........but we love love love top deck exit row on qantas for $3000 less than my missy missy air New Zealand PE......with that extra moola I could afford to do the other cruise......

Now I have just changed my 2 nights at wlv to a studio at boardwalk...save the hassle of transferring resorts..we'll just go from a 1 bed at boardwalk to a studio pool view...easy peasy.........panic!!!!!!!

They look great. It makes sense having so many Epcot ADRs given that you will be a hop, step and a jump from the back gate of Epcot.
I'm so excited about my 5 nights at the BWV for that exact reason. Food, glorious food ...

That's the benefit of the Epcot resorts.....proximity to all those fabulous restaurants at the World Showcase; and Food and Wine booths.

Do you get refillable mugs for doing ADR's on the dining plan?


Thanks for verifying I'm not crazy.

So now I am doing Disney maths and trying to work out if it is worth it for us to get 1 premier AP but its so hard to know if its worth it.

I've book a 2 bedroom villa off site for $2600 for the 17 nights we will be in Orlando (10 days WDW) and I just don't think I will get that good a deal on site even with a discount.

Will keep looking and see what happens.

When you do the dining plan you get the refillable mugs...and i have 3 reservations so that's 3 separate dining plans..thus 3 sets of mugs.....remember you cant do the dining plan if you don't stay at Disney, And the mugs are only to be used at the resort you stay at.
