    Nope as long as at least one person shows up, you're not charged the 10.

    Just call up the reservations to switch it. They will do this for u. I had to do this last year with my party of 9 and go to 10 to find tables. If u keep u can be blocking Someone else from making a reservation :)

    It's hard to get adrs for 3. You can either call and say that person can't go or show up and say they couldn't make it.

    We will be traveling with an infant (highchair) so do you count them in the ADR number or do they just add a highchair to the table somewhere?

    Will do!!!

    Yes, they need to be counted. More for the fire codes than to make sure there's room at the table. But that helps, too.

    And, if you are staying onsite, you can make your dining reservations at the 180 day mark plus 10 days.

    Hope this helps everyone!!!

    I made my reservations this morning and got everything we wanted as well. Would you believe when I made the reservations for 6 at Tusker House, it warned me that our whole party might not be seating together. lol But I'm so excited we got everything!

    Hope everyone is having a great weekend! And May the Fourth Be With You!!!

    We changed our travel dates tonight to The middle of October so you can remove me from the November list. We just couldn't pass up better airline prices for mid October. Have fun everyone!

    I know what you mean about airfare. I can't change our date and I'm looking at $420 per ticket to flight out of Cleveland the day after thanksgiving. Oh well... Gotta pay it. :sad1:

    Ouch! We just do not want to change we debated between Oct and Nov and decided on Nov because the avg Temp is about 5 degrees cooler. We went the week after thanksgiving last year and loved the weather. We also got a good discount thru MVT for our dates at the Poly.

    I am really thinking about booking the $251 tix but just can't bring myself to do it :confused3

    Thanks! You too. I just can't justify $1195 for the four tickets when we could go for less than $850 during October.

    Super Excited! By moving my trip by one day I was able to get an incredible air fare. Denver/Orlando round trip for $208 per person (including tax & fees)! Total for the four of us came out to $832. I originally allocated up to $1600 for Air Fare so I am a real happy camper. I was concerned that since my Disney reservation was a CM F&F I would have to have the cast member make the change but nope! I called Disney and they changed my reservation in a matter of minutes. Well done. For those trying to make air reservations, heres what happened. I checked fares on flyfrontier.com for Nov 2-11 (my original dates). when the fares were shown it also had tabs for about four days before and after my dates with prices. I could see at a glance cheaper fares for other days. Don;t fret if you don't see what you want right away. I had good airfare Friday night that dissappeared before I could get my ducks in a row, but then they were back today. Good Luck everyone!

    I could get cheaper air fare if we drop a day or add 4 nights neither of which are good options. :( Glad you were able to make the change work for you :thumbsup2

    Yea, for me it worked because I simply shifted the entire trip one day without changing the actual number of days. We did lose one weekend day and added one weekday so it does cost me another day of vacation time, but as this is probably our last vacation as a family (daughter 21, son 19) it is well worth it.

    We are planning on either Prime Time or Cape May. I heard great things about Prime Time's Thanksgiving dinner. When we were there in 2006, we has turkey legs for our Thanksgiving dinner.
