I looked out the window and the cornfield behind my house was FLAT on the ground from the wind! I thought there was a tornado coming. I grabbed the youngest kids and yelled for the dogs and we hid in the basement bathroom. When it was over, I went out and we had two trees down in our yard and were without power for four days (no power = no well = no bueno )

I am from Florida and have ridden out several hurricanes - but this derrecho storm was bad news bears. Stay safe plutospalforever!
I do not know. I will have to pay closer attention. The weather dude just keeps saying it's "rare."
It's very ominous right now. Very quiet. The dude says the first round is about 5min's away.
Thanks, will stay safe; kids already in basement watching TV. Me, I must really be addicted to you all. Actually, it calms my nerves.

Oh no! Be safe! I think if I get more rain here in PA my house is going to turn into a house boat.

She asked when I wanted to travel and I told her Dec 1 thru Dec 7. She said "Well I can offer you free dining for those dates"

Lesson - even if they say you don't have a pin, ask if they can offer anything.

Didn't get where I wanted since the choices were very limited so I just went with AS Music. I have stayed at Pop three times and have always liked it. Hope we like AS Music.

Congrats on getting free dining! I really wonder if those who have had this happen didn't just have the pin to start with. Otherwise, what makes them decide who is worthy of their pixie dust and who isn't?

I was skeptical the first couple similar stories as well, but seems to much of a coincidence that a few have reported just being given fding without the pin. One thing is for sure they don't feel I am worthy, cause I have called tons of times and they haven't offered it to me.

I'm glad you said something!! I'm in DE too and haven't paid the news much attention. I got that wack message on my phone the other day that went off till I checked it (even though they didn't do it for the tornado watch) then heard about the tornadoes upstate. We are already in inches of water still down here. Can't take much more. Stay sturdy. hopefully no more tornadoes.

I was floored myself. If I had just hung up after she said I didn't have a pin code, I would be sitting here sulking right now. It really made my night. I was just there for spring break but I really love WDW in December.

It's bc you're nice (not a bad thing) and they are sure you're going anyway but no worries! You'll get it. Besides by waiting till visa or gp you'll more than likely get the resort you want since most pin rooms are booked. They'll open more

I wish I knew. I really feel your pain. I have been putting bookings in my cart every couple of days, ordered the Planning DVD (I watch it just for kicks anyway) and even wrote an email asking for a pin which they responded by telling me they were offered randomly on a first come, first serve basis and telling me to make sure I signed up on the website. Still, if I hadn't made that one comment......
