    To Clarify - I am working with a Dreams Unlimited Travel Agent to get a 3-day stay booked at a Disney Resort for that weekend.

    SORRY FOR THE CONFUSION - :sad:

    I'm now so confused as to what to do. I have a 3 day package with hotel and tickets booked through Dreams for December 8-12 at a little over $1000.

    If I keep that reservation, do I still get priority opportunity to sign up for the December Event?

    Would it be less expensive to do the discounted room rate and get tickets separately? I feel like Dreams already got me an awesome deal!

    Thanks!

    Is your 3-day package through DU for a "Disney owned and Operated hotel or a Lowes/Universal Hotel"? (Although Dec 8-12 is 4 nights...) If so, you should be good to go, because that covers the weekend of the DISapalooza event. The requirement is for you to have booked with DU for a "Disney owned and Operated hotel or a Lowes/Universal Hotel" for at least 3 consecutive nights, for the weekend of the event. Sounds like if that's what you have booked, you should be covered. Couldn't hurt to check with your DU travel agent...

    We haven't made up our minds yet. Right now we are leaning towards booking a DVC room for our trip, except for the night of the party. We'll book something at Universal through DU for that one night, even though that won't give us any edge on getting into the event.

    We just thought that we wanted to be convenient to the event - and more importantly - getting back to the room afterwards.

    Just a fyi to all...remember that the event happens on the last day of Pop Warner. Many cheerleaders/football players will be at All Stars and POR/FQ through the weekend.

    I'm adjusting my reservation accordingly and coming in on that Friday and staying later in the week. We are staying at CBR, pirate rooms.

    It would be neat to have a list of people/hotels after sign-up!

    I stayed in a pirate room at CBR for Scavenger Hunt/Destinaiton D! It was wonderfully amazingly themed. pirate:

    However, I had a car with me and sooooo appreciated it at CBR! You can get lost there. We did going from our room to the foodcourt and back. :lmao:

    Doesn't Pop Warner mostly affect the Resorts, and not the Parks? I thought I read that...

    Yes, which is why I think the warning was for if you wanted to switch resorts.

    I've done some research on the boards and the parks see little effect from Pop Warner. I gather that the parks do see increased traffic as teams are eliminated. The "Super Bowl" game is on the 10th. I bet most teams will leave after this, or stay through the weekend.

    I just wanted to give a heads-up to anyone planning to stay at the Pop Warner reserved resorts. Some folks have complained in the past about the crowds and noise level. :)

    I was in WDW in 2008 during POP warner and on a few days we felt it was crazy busy for so early in the month (it was towards the end of Pop Warner that I noticed the increase), so I do not agree with everyone analysis. Which is why I choose not to go during that week this year.

    I have never seen a major effect on the parks from Pop Warner. OK that's a lie, the one effect I saw was a bunch of cheerleaders in the line for POTC. They were doing cheers in the line. It was a bit annoying, but as far as effecting the number of people in the parks, not really. I have found the effect to be on the previously stated resorts. I will still stay at POFQ. It is my favorite moderate. The boat to DTD is a major draw for me. And I love the size of the resort. I might go for the upgrade to a king room. I love the corner rooms.

    We go every year (except 2006 and 2008 we took a cruise instead) during this week and only one year did we notice anything in the park. It was similiar to Kim's experience but but on Maelstorm. At the time Will Farrel was doing a skit on SNL about cheerleaders and that is exactly what it sounded like to us. They only talked in a cheer.

    However, over on the resort board there is definately some chatter on how it affects the resorts.

    This is one of the slowest weeks of the year so to us, the ability to walk on just about anything is priceless. However as the girls get older missing school is becoming an issue.
