How much do you leave daily? I know we always did at end but daily makes more sense. I do not remember what we left at end though. Help appreciated!

Passporter's Walt Disney World suggests $1 per person/per day

Also, you can call 407-WDW-DINE to schedule Dine with a Imagineer. By last check, it was available select weekdays at 11:30 at Brown Derby and 5:30 at Flying Fish. Cost was around $61 for adults and $35 for kids.

No. I've never seen an envelope in the room. People just bring their own.

That's a little disappointing. For a minute there I thought it was Peter Pan... If anyone has the inside scoop on pixie dust and if/when it would be offered, it should be Peter Pan!

quick question

So, if my husband signs up on disneyworld dot com with his brother's address, and the mailer with the PIN goes to his brother's address, will we be able to apply it to our reservation at our own address, because it's in my husband's name?

If that happens, the only thing you can do is try...call Disney and ask; if you are told "no", never hurts to run it by another CM. I am a little curious, why not just use your address??

PINs are more tied to the house address than the name. Have him create his own account under his real address. Otherwise, he may end up getting PINs at the false address that he can never use.

Just trying to increase my chances, that's all! I figured my brother in law can just keep his eye on the mailbox for us. He can intercept it (it'll be in my husband's name).. can't hurt to try, I guess. Right?

We are using our own address. And my brother in law's. And my mom's. Their likelihood of going to Disney is extremely slim so they are keeping their eyes peeled for Disney fliers in the mail in our names.

That's what I thought the reason was lol...and if it does happen, no guarantee's, but there is always a possibility. Good luck!

So, today in my desperate attempt to find out about a pin I check my hubby's email. (his permission no worries lol) so instead of just a normal look at the last few days I did a search and GUESS what I found????

He sent himself a pin from his work email in 2011 but never told me!!! So now I have mixed emotions..Happy to have a pin. (even though so long ago) but so sad he didn't tell me.

Oh man! I think that is a good sign that you have had one before. Maybe he knew you weren't able to go at that time and didn't want to disappoint you. :-)

We always make our bookings ourselves through Disney and do all of our ADR's online, so we're in the system. (have the Visa also, and although I have gotten a couple things from there, these pins are not because of that). Occasionally they will also mail us something with discount rates. We haven't planned a trip this year, however, so I think they're trying to get us. Just hope that next year, when we are actually going, they will still be trying!
I really believe this makes a difference. We've been going to Dis once and sometimes twice a year every year since 2005. We ALWAYS got pins. Now, for the past 2 years I've been using a TA, and I realized that I now have not been getting any pins. ZERO, ZIP, NADA!!!! :-(
