[QUOTE=karmacats;49247335][QUOTE=PNO4TE;49241846]AKL IPO wouldn't even try to book deminars for me yesterday. They had no idea that there were certain "perk-ed" guests who were allowed to book early. So, I did it myself!
Quote:

The CM I emailed with at AKL IPO knew about the advance booking for deminars, but said they can't help with booking anything that needs an AP or TIW number, so we had to book them ourselves on Friday. They had told me something similar when I tried to get the AP discount on MNSSHP tickets - to get the discount, I had to book them myself, though once I had a reservation number they added it to my itinerary.

As for booking everything on Monday with a Disney Visa, they told me they could do that since the Visa we have on file with them is a Chase Disney one. So, they're supposed to book our Sweet Sundays brunch for us early Monday morning. They'll call us if they have problems. We'll see what happens!
Your response makes so much more sense! I have had mixed luck with AKL IPO this trip. I have always found them to be spot on for their information and ability to help, but I have yet to talk to or email with anyone I have known in the past or who seem to have the same answer from one to another CM. I will try communicating with them this morning to see if they would be willing to book the two French Regional Lunches I am interested in. Thanks again for responding!

Glad I could help. It's not every day that my answers make sense.

I've had really good luck with Don on the phone, and Melissa on the phone and in the actual lounge. The person who emailed me back this time about the Sweet Sundays was Juanita. I hope that helps!

Don is amazing... Melissa and Juanita are people I have dealt with before too. But the past few days it has been four others I have never talked to before.

Www.disneyparksblog.com in today's post did not mention PFTS as one of the events Disney Chase Card holders can book tomorrow, just the deminars, cheese seminars and 3D dessert party.

I see this at disneyfoodblog.com as well now: http://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2013/0...al/#more-89222


this is very confusing as the e-mail they sent out isn't explicit that the examples listed are the only things you can book tomorrow (Monday)

Well, I need one deminar anyway so will get up to call and see how it goes

So is "sweet Sundays" free at Epcot for breakfast portion? It looks like wine tasting costs, but not sure all of it does.

Sweet Sundays is a paid special event. We went last year and it was wonderful.

I called -again - today to verify what could be booked early for all of us with early booking privileges ( Disney Visa, AP, TiW) and the CM verified that PFTS will begin booking on the 13th for EVERYONE. I'm not looking forward to getting up before 6a, but I will~

Ugh, could they make this any more confusing?!?!? The Chase email really made it seem like the early booking was for everything, and AKL IPO seemed to think so, too. I'm not looking forward to the 7 a.m. phone call (in 5.5 hrs ) telling me they can't book my Sweet Sundays until the next day.

Glad to hear it's good. We love the 3D dessert party but it's not offered the one weekend in Oct we're there, so we thought we'd drag our butts out of bed to try the brunch instead.

It's $99 plus tax per person, including brunch, 3 pastries made there by a pastry chef, and drinks (including some alcohol). Here's details from the disney food blog:

Sweet Sundays

Your Sunday will be extra sweet when you experience this event. An expert pastry chef will create three signature desserts before your eyes. Enjoy snacking on a wonderful breakfast buffet, plated signature desserts, and sipping sparkling wines! Hosted by Disney Vacation Clubs.

When: Sundays 10AM – 12PM
Where: Festival Welcome Center, Chef’s Showcase
Pricing: $99 per person (plus tax, gratuity included). Epcot admission required.

September 29: Carla Hall, ABC’s The CHEW, New York, NY
October 6: Warren Brown, CakeLove, Washington, DC
October 13: Buddy Valastro, Carlo’s Bakery, Hoboken, NJ
October 20: Gale Gand, TRU, Chicago, IL
October 27: Master Pâtissier Eric Lanlard, Cake Boy, London, England
November 3: Erika Davis, Graycliff Chocolatier, Nassau, Bahamas
October 10: Geraldine Randlesome, Geraldine’s Creative Cutters, Richmond Hill, Ontario

We're trying for the Oct 20 one. We're going on the 3-night Dream cruise on Oct 24 and I reserved a chocolate-making tour at Graycliff in Nassau, too, before Erika Davis comes to Florida for her Sweet Sunday.

You can't. Not unless you call and ask.

Obviously it's not just deminars, as the Disney Visa ad actually names several other events like the cheese seminars and the 3D Dessert Party. We won't know for another 4 minutes.
