Last survey I took was the one asking about Star Wars Land. They make them quite detailed. Looks like they're scoping out consumer sentiment on deals, and how dependent they will have to be on them in the future.

Ok I haven't been on the boards for a while.... If I book our trip for November 23- 27, will we still get free dining? We have done this in the past but you know the rules are always changing!

  • On line check in or not? we are requesting connecting or adjoining rooms. Will we have a better chance if I don't do OLCI
  • add preferred CS spots to my spreadsheet so when the kids are hungry, we can find a place easiy.
  • Oh ya- make a reservation to board the cat, didn't have that on the list. Poor kitty won't be happy.
Oh shoot! I'm still on the fence about online check in. We're booked in a bunk bed room at WL because that was the only way my TA could get us free dining, but my son is 6 foot 2 (at age 14!). I was sorta hoping that they would take one look at him at check in and just move us to a regular room with the same view. Or can I make that request on online check in? I don't think I can because bunk bed rooms are a "room class" all by themselves. So I'm really stumped there.

I would die! Santa "gave" us a trip when my son was 7. We had booked it in August. I thought I would never make it to Christmas. I'm very bad a keeping secrets!

We check in on 23 as well and have free dining for our length of stay.

I think you have to have at least 2 day tickets in addition to three nights. And of course if your hotel still has availability, you should qualify.

there are a couple of threads on the Resort board that its suggested if you have specific room requests that its better no to do OLCI. 2009 we traveled with family, did OLCI (was 10 days then), requested connecting rooms and got them with no problems. I have a few more weeks to figure it out. My sis and I want connecting or adjoining rooms or at least rooms close to one another.

That's my problem. I hear good things on both sides of the fence. Does the time that you check in in person have any bearing on the situation, I wonder? We are spending the day at Universal before we check in, so we won't be checking in until very late afternoon, and by then, I'm worried that all the regular courtyard view rooms will be gone.

Any one know where I can find (in writing preferably from Disney themselves) information about online check in 60 days in advance instead of only 10 days?

My Target one is a v neck, but in a regular neck tee from the Disney Store, I wear a medium. It is a little loose, but the small is more fitted. I wear the smalls I have if I'm not going to be outside all day, but for a day at the parks, I would wear a medium.

We're staying the same time and its really not that big of a deal . We got fd November 11-17 and doing a room only on the 10th at pofq got a garden view with 20% off and you can just walk over to POR to check in.
