    Here now, waiting for a bus to Epcot. Tried adding my UCT tickets to my KTTW card but they couldn't. Said to try guest services at the parks.

    Yes there will be Halloween oriented activities at Port Orleans, and the evening movie will most likely be related too. See last year's schedules in the Archive section for an idea of the sort of things they do: www.portorleans.org/recreation-activites-schedule.php

    What are UCT tickets? That makes me nervous because we bought discounted tickets through Run Disney and they told me I could link them when we got them at check-in.

    I just sent you a set from dinner. Sorry if something is not clear and I will try again tomorrow.

    Oh, the cell service is terrible in my room. It's coming as three emails. Let me know if you do not get all three.

    We were there for Halloween 2 of the last 3 years. They had nice candy out by registration for the whole week. The games and contests were not fun for us. They had boxes of cupcakes for prizes so for things like bingo they had 3 dozen and 3 people each won a dozen and then after they played a bunch of games for tiny oriental trading party favors they had been giving away. It just wasn't well thought out. They kept changing rules mid-game , etc. Animal kingdom Lodge does a great job though....

    Many thanks. I got three emails, with multiple photos attached to each. You're right, there were a few sending issues, I'll email you back.

    no trouble converting two sets of UT tickets at POFQ in June. One was a recent purchase with five days and PHs. The other was an older non expiring ticket that has one major park day and a few water park and more entries

    It's there on the website for all to see when booking.

    I see nothing about free dining on their website. I'm missing it.

    I'm booking from the UK, if that make any difference?

    I called to see if I could change my reservation from 4n@CSR to 5n@POFQ and was told that if I added tickets to the package I would qualify for free dining. I was going to book tickets direct with Disney anyway, so I thought I might as well. Never done a DP before, so I'm excited to see what it's all about :-)

    Big difference. UK guests get offers that US guests don't, plus apparently a lot earlier. (I would say that any offers for next summer probably won't be available until next spring.)

    Ah, yes, that's the difference! You're going to love the Free Dining. Every trip we've been on, we've been able to snag that and it's so much fun!

    Yes, it makes quite a difference. Free dining is offered as a booking perk via the UK Disney Travel Company most of the year round, whereas for US guests it is for fairly limited periods.

    UK guests also get GREAT value 14-day and 21-day all-inclusive park tickets, whereas the US equivalent Magic Your way stops at 10 days and needs adds for water parks and park hopping (after which time it is basically cheaper to buy an Annual Pass).

    Thanks! We can use our debit card then!! We will be there for 3 weeks and I do a laundry every second day wash and tumble dry of our lighter clothes (we change our clothes in the afternoon after our midday break back at the resort so we build up laundry rather quickly!) and I add an extra load for darker colours when needed but usually once per week :P
