I spoke with Disney dining reservations earlier today. A supervisor told me that as long as you have a 12 digit confirmation #, you will not be refused access to any of the booked events. They confirmed the events shouldn't have been open to all, but they will honor the confirmations / reservations.

I think they've since fixed the issue, but it's a shame that it probably allowed alot of the seminars to fill up faster than expected.

Was not listed specifically listed on the email, but it says "includes"

Cardmembers have the opportunity to book special events before sales open to the general public on August 13.1 Indulge your taste buds with a range of events, including:
Culinary Demonstrations
Mixology Seminars
Wine Schools
Cheese Seminars
"3D" Disney Dessert Discovery

Does not say "only includes"...

The CM I spoke with this morning seemed to believe it included everything that would be available to general public on Tuesday.

I found it on the Disney Visa website.... it does pretty clearly say Disney Visa. (Which as a matter of fact it also says on the access to the lounge....and my SW Visa does not mention either of these as perks.)

This is not good as I have a flight Monday morning, but it may save me a lot of money

And just out of curoisity. Did you have to jump through all those idiotic phone prompt hoops this morning? You know the "are you in Orlando?", "how many are in your party" etc.... like it matters, it's all one reservation center, they are just trying to collect data.. I make up things to throw them off LOL! Yep, I am in Orlando and have a party of 20 etc... And when you get the rep she/he has no idea what you entered into that useless system.

That's the one I was planning on. I didn't book it right away b/c I wasn't sure if DS16 would want to go. Oh we'll maybe next year.

As for the Chase thing, as far as I am concerned it had better not be all events. I just was approved for 2 hours off work Tuesday. Not Monday. I won't be calling from the subway so that will let out any sort of calling at 7 AM Monday. Some of those signature meals have very small capacities, 10-30 people. How much of a mess would it be if they fill all of those up with Chase Visa holders and there is nothing left Tuesday.

I tend not to believe that the WDW DINE cast members really know anything about anything, so the fact that a WDW DINE cast member said it was all events doesn't really phase me.

I also had planned on taking a few vacation hours Tues morning but now I have to address an issue and be in early on Tuesday! So the ability to make some of the reservations on Monday with my Disney Visa is great news for me. Anyway to contact your boss over the weekend and ask to change days?

You may be looking at one list that is for a previous year. Make sure you check the dates carefully.

I've seen too many instances of CM and Supervisors all saying different things. I don't think anyone will know for sure about this until the first person who bought tickets that wasn't a passholder goes to pick up their tickets and is either given them or refused them.

I hope it works for all the events on Monday. I'm going to give it a try. I am scheduled for surgery at noon on Tuesday so I was dreading the chance they might move up the time I have to report to the hospital to conflict with me calling WDW at 7AM to book. If I can't book everything on Monday I'll be calling again on Tuesday like everyone else. At least I won't be in CA this year like I was last year.

We don't do any contact over the weekend. I can call and leave her a message. But what is the point of doing that if I don't know for sure whether I can book the events I want on Monday. If not then I'd have to take off even more time Tuesday.

For the schedule on the Disney site the Dates on the PDF's were all 8/02/13 when I looked at them last night. The links I posted yesterday from the DVC website that TDCNala put up on the first page are dated 8/06/2013 & 8/07/2013. So I would expect those to be the most current ones.

interesting - I do get those e-mails (and have a Disney Visa), but haven't gotten one today yet with that information. I am traveling Tuesday so if I could book thing Monday that would be a huge help

This is minor compared to booking events, and I'm sorry if its already been covered, but that chase email had the lounge opening at 11? This was our first stop last year to pick up wristbands. I'm hoping this doesn't mean no more wristbands!

Just read it again...it's moved to the American adventure pavilion. That explains the opening time!
