Hey Mal! You can call me Jim.

For those interested and waiting, I got the email from Disney Visa today for early marathon registration. You save $15 by registering early using the link. If you need the link, let me know. It says the coupon code is the first 4 numbers of your cc. Or if you are hard up for cash, Norm seems to have CJ's card number lying around somewhere.

Just got an update from tourig plans on crowds for my trip dates
August 19, 2013: Disney's Hollywood Studios Crowd Level updated from 2.0 to 7.5.
August 21, 2013: Animal Kingdom Crowd Level updated from 1.4 to 7.5.
August 23, 2013: Disney's Hollywood Studios Crowd Level updated from 1.5 to 6.5.
August 23, 2013: Animal Kingdom Crowd Level updated from 1.1 to 5.5.

does it seem strange to have that large of a correction? The resort levels only went up by about 1 point a day during that week. most of the other corrections were 2-3 points and that makes sense with the 35% off offer that just came out but 5-6 points seems excessive

That's a MAJOR correction there. Something seems amiss....

I hope it's a typo. I'll have to check our plans and see, but our ADR's are done so I don't see a lot of options to change at this point. I looked at UT's calendar and nothing has changed there. It is not as detailed as touring plans. I thought the discount released only ran through 8/14??? Did I miss something? It should not effect bookings for late August.

I'm surprised Randall wasn't involved in that one. I knew there was a reason the US was setting up that missile shield. And the media is blaming North Korea.

You are right it is the 14th. I thought I saw somethign thru the 24th but it wasn't the same discount.
