Cheers!!!
It already feels like I'm on hold! Ha!

We just went in April for our first time and I am pulling numbers to head back in September. I would love to go for FD and to see MNSSHP.

I just feel like I'm on hold the whole time I'm not at Disney....it's just one big long hold wait until the next trip.

The CMs love me. When they pick up, they just get: "I need a room for Sept. 6-14 at POR for a party of two with 8 day hoppers on the free dining promotion please."

We're planning on going to Epcot on the 1st day of the F&WF. My 15 yr old son has wanted to be a chef since age 4; he takes culinary classes & plans to go to Valencia in Orlando for their culinary program, hoping even to get a job/internship at Disney; he loves to cook & sample foods so he's uber-excited about it.

We're not doing any big events there for the F&WF, but at least he'll get to be in the atmosphere and sample some foods 'round the world.

In doing some research, I understand that snack credits are good towards *some* of the food samplings at the Epcot Food & Wine Festival?

Is this true, and anyone know how does that work? Do they give you a list (I assume some might cost more than 1 snack credit, some things might not be offered at all, etc.)? Because if that's the case with free dining I'll save almost all of them for that day, lol.

I am a Disney Visa cardholder and have three rooms booked right now at Poly for a 9/7 check-in. I asked my travel agent about this deal coming out next Monday and of course she can't confirm anything. She did claim she would be on the phone all day if it does go into affect. Should I try calling in myself too though? Just to see if I can get through before her? We have been banking on getting FD since we booked months ago and really don't want Poly to sell out fast.

Your TA has to do it if you booked with them. I hope they get through for you.

Do you know if they release the menus for the booths beforehand? I want to plan out just how many of my snack credits I want to save for it.

I use a AAA agent, only b/c they offer a "story time experience" that my girls always really enjoy. Plus they offer alot of other perks!

That's awesome!

So...where are your "must have" ADRs? I think we have a good variety selected but since we've never been it's hard to know for sure!

For me?

Coral Reef
Chefs de France
Boatrights
Kona
50s Prime Time

I also always do the Garden View Tea Room and pay out of pocket.

If you want signature dining, I like Yachtsman Steakhouse and Artist Point. Plus there's always a soft spot for CRT.

Favorite character breakfast is always Chef Mickeys.
