My friends, I'm going to go completely off topic for a second.
I had to share what just happened to me. I was outside, and a small dove just kinda walked over to me. Poor little guy may have been injured, but he hopped up into my hand and just sat there. I've been on the porch just holding him...he didn't seem to have a care in the world to try and get away. But it just warmed my heart.

I do see this as a good sign that they haven't given up on free dining, and possibly a sign that they may offer bouncebacks when we all go in September....now THAT would be something to get anxious for.
I am not excited at all. I am hoping to get the email or snail mail, because I don't count on public release until it happens. My luck I won't get a pin, but I am hoping!!!

That's super cool! Since mom has been gone ( tomorrow makes a month) I see birds all the time that fly by, will notice them sitting in a tree looking at me, one built a nest in my porch, etc... On my moms vm- it sounded like birds at the end and mom liked birds... So now they are special to me!

Oh that is too precious!! I had a robin do that to me when I was in college. He was missing an eye. It was the end of fall and super cold, so I took him inside, left a message for my roommate: "Dear Sarah, my name is Darzy, Chris rescued me, please don't scare me." And went to the store to get some bird seed for him. Long story short, this bird lived with us the rest of the semester and was as happy as can be! He sang to me every morning, sat on my shoulder when I did my homework and flew, yes flew, with me to my classes and waited for me in a tree. We finally convinced him to be free in the spring but he would still hang out outside our window and sing to us! LOVED that bird!!!

It's exactly what I said! I guess it's still a good sign that something is in the works for the fall... still upsetting

Oh my gosh, that is too precious.

In our old house in the back yard the mourning doves used to make a nest every few months on top of the porch light and I used to love going to sit out there and watch them, and the babies as they grew.

Soooo beautiful.

Joe, aww I had a pet dove. One of the best pets I ever had...loved that bird so much. We found 'baby bird' and she (?) was so tame she would kiss our lips. We could leave her sitting outside on top of her cage, which was really tall, and she wouldn't fly away. One day she disappeared from the top of the cage...not sure if she flew away, or it was the neighbors cat. This was 30+ years ago.

Hopefully you/someone can foster the lil' buddy.

...gosh, I bet you can't you tell I'm a softy for animals!

A PIN certainly could precipitate a possible Christmas trip....perhaps...maybe.

AHHHH, Disney, just take my money!!!

And whether or not they decide to release it to the public all depends on how well the PIN offers fill their rooms. If they don't, or if certain dates don't...it becomes more of a possibility.

And leaks are wonderful when people are looking for them. The Aug/Sept Room Only offer seemed to get lost in the free dining crowd. I threw those dates out quite a bit ago and they never really drummed up much interest. I suppose if they had released a week before free dining, folks would have been talking about them more, but they certainly got lost on the May 6/9 release dates.

But, that said, I hope some of the late August travelers at least got a decent deal, better than rack rate anyway.
