Good luck everyone who's still waiting. Don't give up.
AWESOME!!! Hooray for you!!!!

Ohh thankyou!!! I was going to ring to cancel, but think I might wait a few days or so, until the hype dies down and doesn't take as long to get through.

Now I wish I hadn't of waited on the phone and probably now rung up a huge phone bill. Ohh well not to worry, at least I got the free dinning!


Thank you

I did mine this morning before 6am. 9/21-9/29 at ASMo with an upgrade to plus dining. Yay!

Fortunately, I made all my ADRs about 2 weeks ago and got everything we wanted. Hurray!

So now I just need to wait for the phone lines to die down so that we can adjust our November reservation a bit. It was cheaper to book 2 separate vacations than to do the one 2 week trip and pay for all of the food in November, even if they offer any discounts since we are camping at FW.

Aaaaah, the wonders of free dining!

Gee, I am glad I was able to call in yesterday afternoon and grab a POP FD reservation with 0 minute wait on the phone. I knew that Disney Visa card was worth something!

We got 6 nights at POP and upgraded to the full dining plan. Could have gone up to a moderate resort but decided to save the money...we have always loved POP and it's even better being within walking distance of AoA.

Can anyone tell me there thoughts on the next level of dining? My husband is a meat and potato guy and it's quite likely we would eat at a steak restaurant like Yachtsmen steakhouse 3 of the 4 nights. Because of this I'm thinking that I should upgrade the dining plan. In doing so, it'd be approximately $18 per person, per day correct? Thoughts, opinions?
Hi, I sure think it's worth it to upgrade to table service. The character dining alone was worth it to me. Look at the menus and see where you want to eat and the prices, if you want to eat at a steak restaurant it's going to be more that $18 per person a day.....
Enjoy!!

Alright, so I'm sticking with my estimate I made earlier. The hold times only seem to be long when they're having problems, while many have got through relatively quickly. This is still miles away better than it has been in the past. I can remember an hour and a half without breaking a sweat and that was calling right at 7am.

I think crowds wont bad at all come September and we are all in for a great time.

Kept getting the "all circuits are busy" message. When online booked 3 rooms at POFQ gardenview in 15 mins all done. Tried to call again still got "all circuits are busy". Relief is so sweet. Now count down to September. Good luck everyone.

Can anyone point me to a place where I could find out park hours for 9/23-9/27? This is our first trip as adults and I'm trying to figure out dinner etc options.

I find this Disney thing to be so overwhelming and I feel helpless with all of my annoying questions.
