They recommend an hour at least for bus travel before your reservation , plus another half hour for monorail. ( if you want to ride it) Figure 2 hours to be safe. My guess is you can do it under a hour if you drive to the TTC. ( but thats assuming the monorail is running well!

BUT at that time of day the buses will be fairly quiet. I would check the schedule to see when the earliest the bus leaves from your hotel.

In you situation the bus might be slightly more feasible because you can cut out the monorail or ferry.

Dining pkg at mama Melrose. Our second day will be a Wed, regular park hours, recommended park day. I've tried ( and will keep trying) to change my F! dining to this day, but so far, no luck.

Will it be better to go the first day with the priority seating, even though the park with be busier? Or would I be better off just doing stand by on a better day?

We want to try Mama Melrose so we will eat there Monday regardless. If we waited til Wed to view the show, could I pixie dust my F! seats to some one else?

TIA!
We tried 5 times over several years to see Fantasmic. If you go i highly recommend priority seating. The show is good but not so good that I would stand in lines like cattle for hours to see it.

The dinner package was very very good, seating was fine and it took very little park time. As far as a recommended day for HS , i never see the need. Its never that crowded there. ( except maybe near major busy season.)

Yep this is why. September or January you wont see waits anywhere. Slowest time of the year! Try it again summer or late November or Christmas time.

Wow, so I sent my second email *rollseyes* - the first time the auto email said someone would contact me within seven days, this one says 10. Ugh.

You mean what day? Day 8- they shouldn't have said I would be contacted within 7 days if I wasn't going to be, you know? That's poor customer service IMO. And after already receiving poor customer service, it's very frustrating not to be acknowledge.

Hi all,

Word to the wise.... Stay on top of your bank accounts and credit card statements. I have a Disney chase visa that I booked my wishes dessert party on at the beginning of aug. I pulled up my acct yesterday to pay it off and if was $1300 more. Had four different fraudulent charges for WDW Dining totally $1300. Ugh!!! Definitely not mine. Anyhow, they shut that card down and will refund the charges. Scary. The fraud felt seems to think someone hacked into my acct???

Fun! Fun!

Does it matter if I printed the actual tix at home vs using will call. I tried to type in the conf # under the bar code but doesn't want to take it.

I printed mine out and was able to scan them with my phone to link them.

that is scary because the charges were made through Disney. I have had fraudulent charges on my Chase Amazon;they declined the charge and notifed me. Chase Freedom ;$9000 worth of Tickets on Delta that I noticed while they were still pending. I check my credit card accounts on line every couple of days. 3 are Chase so easy enough to check with one log in. One tip I have heard is DO NOT leave any credit card numbers saved in your on line accounts for any merchant. Its a pain as I have to type the number in every time I make a purchase but worth it.
