Very true!

All that said I do NOT have an AP but I've been doing the 'Disney math' on it quite a bit and if I ever had 2 trips planned within 1 year or ever stayed longer than a week I would definitely get one.
Great information, thanks! Where would I go to upgrade to an annual pass?

P.s. this is only my 2nd post but I have been watching for a long time so thanks to all who contribute regularly! LGTD (Let's Go To Disney)

This is from the Disney World website:


Q. Can Magic Your Way tickets be upgraded after they are purchased?

A. Yes. If it is within 14 days of a Magic Your Way theme park ticket’s first use and the ticket has remaining admissions, you are able to upgrade the ticket. If it is more than 14 days after first use or if no admissions remain, then a ticket may not be modified or upgraded.

Upgrades may include adding more days or adding any combination of options, including: Park Hopper Option, Water Park Fun & More Option, No Expiration Option

Ticket upgrades must be made in person at any of the following locations at Walt Disney World Resort:

Ticket windows at theme parks and water parks
Concierge desks at Disney Resort hotels
Guest Relations at the Downtown Disney Area

Yes, because we're going to get the dining plan either way.

Oh, it's a little MORE than 100, now that I do the math.

I'm a DVC member, so haven't booked with CRO in some time.

We are out of DVC points and love free dining (family of 4 "adults").

I'm wondering if it comes out, is there any advantage to booking with AAA, rather than just the normal route through the website or CRO? Are there discounts with AAA or is it the same price no matter who you book through?

A local amusement park switch to this same kind of mugs this year. They did not switch the mug design just added a chip on the bottom with a sticker.
Oh how I hope Disney does a re-design of the mug.

I think the refillable mug is still a great value at 17.99 for people staying at least six days or more but that price is a little steep if only staying four days. How often can you even get to the refillable stations in large resort's. I'm almost never at other resort's unless I'm doing ts so do people carry there mugs with them everywhere they go?

I don't think that's expensive for the mugs. I think a lot of people see the price and think that's what they're paying for just drinks. But really you're getting a souvenir and drinks. If you didnt get to keep the mug, that'd be a different story!

AAA gives you a Diamond pass that allows you to park on a special AAA lot. Also you get 10% on purchases over $50 at certain locations. Also reserved viewing area for fireworks. That's about it.

Lately they've been having promotions like a $50-$100 Gift Card, however they now require full payment at time of booking. In the past they would give you the GC with the documents and after you had paid in full.

Also, you need a good TA. The ones at the office will typically only be available after 9-10am when the store opens. Booking directly with CRO will allow you to contact them at 7am.

Free dining dates - they'll FOR SURE be the dates that people have been getting with their pin codes, right?

We are checking in on 11/29 and I'm hearing FD would likely start 11/30. There's no way FD would be available for a check-in of 11/29, right? (Friday after thanksgiving... although there does seem to be decent vacancy for rooms.)

If there's no chance, I might go ahead and book a "fun" (aka: over budget) room for us the first night. Since it's only one night and we don't need park tickets on our check-in day we might use that forced split stay to try something cool the first night.

Unfortunately, there is no way to know what the dates will be (if any) until real leaks start coming in. Even then, nothing is 100% fact until it is officially released.
