    Just spoke with a CM today and it doesn't look good to be able to make our ADR at 180 days out. They expect now that the on-line system to be up towards the end of January but only to be able to make ressies about 90 to 120 days out. She suggested that the hours will only be posted that far in advance as well. They have put the on-line check in on hold for the time. It will be hard to determine how it will fall out.

    Anyone else have any good NEWS? Lois

    Oh no! When they first announced this whole system revamp, I didn't even question that our 180 day out would be affected. I can't believe they've had such a set back in getting this thing up and running. Oh well. I guess all we can do is just hope for the best and see what happens!

    Thanks so much for the new info, Lois!

    It really didn't sound like a set back but more a change in overall policy. Shortening the number of days out that ressies can be made more in line with DCL.

    It really doesn't matter as long as it is a change for everyone. I want the park schedule to be released prior to making my ressies any how. So now to figure out when 120 to 90 day out are so I can plan when I need to make my ressies. If the on line system is up in January then most of the bugs should be worked out before we need to use it. At least we can hope.

    I figure we will make ressies some time in either March or April. Either way it will be OK. Just more time for planning. Till then, Lois

    Amen!! I had hoped to be done in January. We will just need to keep an eye open and an ear to the ground. Things can change at any time. Lois

    I just read that they changed making ADR's to 90 days prior to your arrival. That means we still have over 3 months til we can make our adrs!!!

    I know!! All along I had planned on my ADR date being Jan 20th but now it's not until April 20th!! Who knows with Disney, though. Things can change at any time. We'll just have to wait and see what happens...

    That means I can't make mine till April 9th. Oh well just more time to make decisions on where I want to eat. Hopefully the calender will be completed before we can make our ADR. I guess it isn't that big of a deal as long as it is for everyone. Just where did you read the 90 day rule? Lois

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday to all!!!

    For the time I am happy that I have 6 months + till my trip. I fell yesterday morning and found my left foot to be bruised and swollen this morning. Went to Urgent Care and had an X-Ray. It is Broken!!! I may need surgery to have it repaired. I could use some positive thoughts for the time being. Will keep you all posted. Lois

    Lois! Oh no!! I can't believe it's broken! Hopefully you won't need surgery and you'll be all fixed by the time your trip rolls around!!

    Looking for that Silver lining, I figure if I am not good as new I can get a Handicap pass and use a wheel chair. That should help to get us on the rides. When I called and spoke to my 15 year old grand son, his question was: Is this going to affect the trip? Just too funny. I am glad he wants to go. He is now at an age when it might not be cool to go to WDW with your grandma! I will keep you posted on my recovery. Lois

    Saw the doc today. He said that although the bone will not heal straight that I shouldn't have any issues due to the location of the break. So I have 4 to 6 weeks before it is healed and that is if there are not any problems.

    The good NEWS no surgery. I will take it. I go back on 1/9 for a follow up. He will take a new X-rays to determine if it is healing as desired. I will keep all posted.

    I hope everyone else had a very happy and safe Holiday. Any plans for New Years Eve? We may spend it with the TV and two of our three Grandkids. Lois

    Hello, I seem to be doing OK. As for plans for the New Years Eve we now plan to have our two lofer grandkids spend the night. Austin is 15 and Beth is 12. These are the two we are taking to WDW in July. Maybe we can discuss the plans during our time together.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR to all!!!

    I finally made my reservation. July 2-5 at the Dolphin.:banana:

    It was actually a couple bucks a night cheaper than POFQ. Even after all of the extra fees and whatnot. Who would have thought?:confused3

    I'm excited, and I think my dad will love staying on the Boardwalk!:yay:

    Glad you seem to be doing ok, Lois! Discussing plans for an upcoming Disney trip sounds like a perfect way to celebrate New Years! Have fun!!

    Congrats on the great Dolphin rate. I've never stayed at the Swan or Dolphin but I imagine the close proximity to the Boarwalk and Epcot should be nice!! Doesn't it feel great to finally have it booked?!
