I called and they told me there was nothing they can do until it expires. Boooo! I think I'm like 85 days out? Lol - oct 26!
I wish I could take your 1900 park fare. Lol. Trying to switch mine to another day but not having any luck.

So, it looks like we will be driving, and we'd like to head down Sunday so that we are nice and refreshed for the week!

I was thinking we might take this opportunity to check out a different hotel. We've only stayed at Pop. POFQ garden view is 160ish. Pop would be 103. Disney site showed no availability at AOA for little mermaid rooms. So then I decided to check out expedia and see how much offsite hotels in the area would be. Low and behold, they had an AOA LM room for 130, so I booked it! There is free cancelation until Nov 5th if I change my mind.

Does this seem like an Ok plan, and an OK deal? TIA!
Sounds awesome!!!

The pool is great. The resort is so much smaller than POR and a lot quieter. My daughter would love to go sit outside in the gardens and just watch the bunnies run. They also loved the campfire at 7 every night. Usually there was only about 10 people, but it was nice just to stand around and talk to everyone and roast marshmellows. My parents loved to go to the main building and listen to jazz.

That sounds like fun! We opted to stay off-site on the night we drive down. I like your plan better! LOL Unfortunately, we're bringing the dog and didn't want to check him in until we had to so got a room off-site that accepts pets.

Off topic but any of you go to Seaworld? We've never been but made multiple trips to WDW over the years. Booked an extra day to go there this year but wondering if its worth it. I've read several reviews that after being at WDW it was kind of a let down. Thoughts anyone? I did find tickets for $50 so at least it won't be too expensive. Also I also buy a WDW ticket that day? Not sure if Seaworld would be a full day and we might need WDW ticket for the evening?

I'd do Seaworld first day if you can otherwise it probably will be a let down. Haven't been in years and have heard it's gotten pretty cool.

Hehe thanks! Im not totally convinced yet but we will see. There should be a setting on my computer that doesn't let me buy things after midnight! Lol Where off site did u decide to stay? Looking on expedia the cheapest rooms I saw were still in the $70 range and had pretty bad reviews. And we just had a terrible experience with a Super 8 here in SC that had good reviews... so im a little trigger shy!

Semi-on topic. I am so tired of people blaming a bad dining experience on the dining plan. Whether I'm paying OOP or paying for the dining plan or have free dining I'm not going to accept bad food. Honestly, I've read comments comparing people on DDP to cows and pigs. And yet these same people never complain about the food while they are at Disney. They don't review on Yelp they just come here and complain and blame the DDP.

Ok, so not everyone does but I'm tired of reading the posts that do. I would avoid them if I could but sometimes I'm reading along and boom.

Back to party happy fun fun times. I'm going to Disney in 100 days!

Thanks for the reply. Think I'll keep our WDW park ticket for the day just in case we want to hop back.

Yikes! I just checked too. It is not looking good out there! Back in June, airfare for my dates were as low as $208. I really hope they go down again...I suppose they usually do. If not, for a family of 5, there goes the free dining savings!

Have you tried to call? Maybe they can see something that doesn't show up online.
