    They could be booked. We booked a FD bounce back that was August-Sept 2013...

    I have a question. I am staying over Christmas and wanted to know do you take with you the presents? Is it safe? should we? I want to take them but I am already taking so much stuff...Should we only take some? any opinions will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    When we went for Christmas a few years ago I took a few just to open on Christmas, like two each. I also brought a special Disney stocking for each person. The other gifts stayed home as did our traditional stockings filled and waiting when we returned!

    We are all excited, except DH of course (who still drops hints for WL & Poly) :p Although I do think most of it is just him teasing me ;) I offered Candace a surrogate position as RC Queen :thumbsup2 padawans will be a strong contender as well :upsidedow

    Kate wants WL too, but the 5 of us are digging the GF reservation :cheer2:

    That is the one we booked too. We booked at POFQ as we had just stayed at WL and figured we'd save a few bucks next year. Well, I started having withdrawal and was checking pricing on line. That is when I couldn't find any standard view rooms. I can't justify booking a different view as the cost difference gets extremes for 10 nights. Man, here's hoping I can call and find out something is available!

    Maybe the Hess Station across from the speedway???

    If you win, will you at least upgrade to the Yellowstone Suite?

    Will you try out the new TT and let us know what you think?

    You're going soon, too so maybe you could file a TT report, too?

    :goodvibes

    Me, too:)

    Yes, you can always apply an active pin code or discount at any time. I'm with hubby, I won't pay RR. I'm sure something will come along for you in the summer.

    Thank you for posting your TR, bowbat! I believe the oatmeal is seasonal at WL, but you would think November would be oatmeal 'season' so maybe it's been discontinued? They had it back in 12/10. I also like that the Epcot resorts have hard boiled eggs all the time and also oatmeal.

    Have you booked your next trip with the FL Res. discount?

    :santa:When we went in 12/10, I drove so I was able to easily bring DD's presents in a couple of bags, her Mickey stocking and a small tree and ornaments. Could you ship the items if you're flying?



    :thumbsup2

    No I mean our bounce back was for WL and AKL, this year we stayed at POR and the offer in our room was for deluxe resorts with FD.

    TT=Test Track, no? (Or some other WL acronym I'm blanking on. :rotfl:)

    I'm planning on hitting Epcot our first day (Saturday the 8th), so I will definitely pop in here and give you a report!

    I'll be down too for the new TT - hoping the lines aren't too crazy long! I plan to do single rider, but even that line for TT was always a long one.

    Sorry, yes, Test Track: "Presented by Chevrolet":rolleyes2

    Looking forward to your review!

    For gawrsh sakes, can you get a Fast Pass? Wheel chair? VIP pass?! Can't wait for your review, too and will you be doing the FLE and BOG?

    :thumbsup2


    Did you get any numbers? We got one so we won $4 - minus the $2 for the ticket, so we're $2 ahead!:faint:

    The Yellowstone suite is the sweetest suite this side of Ft. Wilderness. It's actually the Presidential Suite, room 7123 in the South Wing. We were honored to stay for 11 nights in August 2011. I have many (pre-rehab) photos HERE and HERE.

    Yeah, FP might be a better option for TT!

    I did FLE last month when we were there, they had a dress rehearsal twice while we were in MK, it's awesome! The theming is just simply amazing. Ate as Gaston's Tavern, rode Under the Sea & Enchanted Tales with Belle. I've been looking every day for an opening at BOG but it's booked solid. I'm thinking I might just avoid that area in 2 weeks, it's going to be a madhouse with the official opening on the 6th. This is a super short 3-nt trip tp surprise my cousin, who will be there with her daughter & the school band. My cousin didn't know there were other parks besides MK - so I felt I HAD to go down & help her navigate LOL!! Family duty, right?!?!?!?

    Another quick question. What is the easiest way to get to the monorail? I think I read that there is a bus to the CR from WL?
