    No hidden fees. What you pay when you complete the transaction is it. All applicable taxes and whatnot are in there (you know, those pesky "government" fees?). I've used the Wanna Get Away in the past when it's a good deal, but we're not getting any deals out of Philly at all this year. :( Also, with Southwest there are no luggage fees!!! :woohoo:

    Wonderful!!! I make mine tomorrow morning. I'm only making three, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

    What does everyone think a good time to eat at O'hana's for dinner is if I also want to see Wishes fireworks from the beach?

    I am thinking 6:30-6:45 should be a good time, since I have read it can take a while to be seated.

    Yay! Just got all my ADR's. I'm SO happy. :cool1: Got all I wanted and was only off by 15 minutes on a couple of them and I was booking for a party of 7! I also was surprised by all the restaurants that need a credit card now. And very annoyed I had to type in my card number and address for each restaurant that needed the credit card.
    Next steps are to plan what we are doing at each park to maximize our ride/attractions!

    Thanks figmentswife and figmentchick but it also looks like I need more posts before I can PM.

    Some advice...anyone eat at Teppan Edo? I heard its a good place to take kids since they entertain while you watch them cook your food. Also, would it too much to do BOG for dinner then do the dessert party afterwards? Or should I split it up? We are there for 11 days so we have time.

    Oh and anyone doing CHef Mickeys? I'm hesitant since I've seen some bad reviews but people are all different and some just like to complain. We are def doing Tusker house for early breakfast.

    We are planning on Ohana dinner and then the dessert party, but we were going to go for the earliest Ohana dinner so we're not doing them right on top of each other, but with a little break in between.

    Ok last one :)

    Anyone been to trex in downtown Disney? I'm worried my LOs might be scared but they love dinosaurs. So also considering Raglan road instead bc DH and I ate there few years ago and it was great! Just thought they might like trex better. Thanks in advance for your help!! And sorry for so many posts :)

    We did BOG @ 4:30 then the dessert party @ 8 and were too full still from dinner Bob and I shared 4 chocolate strawberries only, but the seats and view were worth the $$$ even though we couldn't sample the desserts

    We have done T-Rex, we were visiting family but didn't go to the parks:sad: my son was 2 1/2 and he loved it try to avoid the ice cave its cold and dark and the light show gives you a headache. try and sit to the left of the ice cave there are several smaller dinosaurs that move around and make noise I think about every half hour. The food is great I loved the mushroom pasta dish

    Thanks! I was thinking 7ish, but your times sound good, too. :)

    :woohoo: So glad you got everything you wanted! I think I might try the idea I've been hearing and make the reservation for six people instead of five. Some peeps from the October thread said they found available times when they used even numbers than odd. :upsidedow Whatever. As long as I can eat where I want when I want! :) Besides, I have a CM friend that might tag along with us.

    Oh yeah, definitely try for an even number. For whatever reason the odd numbers are often unavailable.

    Geez, I feel like im gearing up for the Super Bowl or something I am so excited to make our ADR's and I still have another couple weeks to wait....:eek:

    I was surprised that 7 worked for booking. Maybe it has to do with tables being usually for 4 so 5 doesn't work. Every reservation I did had a big yellow warning that "everyone in my party may not be able to sit at the same table". I'm just happy that I was able to get things done and finished and without too much hassle. I think it helped that I'm in Canada and we still have the old website. I also didn't get onto the website until 8am.

    So just checking since I'm noticing people have more than one reservation, once it's 180 days you can make all your AdR for whole trip? Or is it done each passing day?
