    YAY for free dining!!! That's a nice savings!!

    I'm glad you are definitley able to keep your room- I was going to tell you about that, but I'm glad you knew. :thumbsup2

    Honestly, I have no idea how free dining works. :confused3 Wish I could be of more help!!

    Well, I know how the dining plan itself works. It's funny because I've never gotten it but I've sold it and explained enough times to clients to know a lot about it! They don't call it a Key to the World for nothin; you really can do everything with it!


    Welcome!! I absolutely cannot wait, it's going to be a blast!! :)

    I just paid the deposit for the modified Land portion of my trip. That means I definitely get free dining! :woohoo: The balance isn't due til 8/6 but I plan to pay it off as soon as I get my refund from DCL. They said it should take about 3 weeks.

    I can't wait until September! :yay:

    So since I saved a bunch of money on food thanks to the free dining promo, I decided I wanted to upgrade where we were going to stay for our 2 nights after the cruise. Originally, we were going to be staying at ASMo in a preferred room. I have just gotten off the phone with Disney and we are now staying at....

    Wilderness Lodge! I'm super excited! :banana: I've never stayed at a deluxe, ever, so this will be yet another first for me! Joe has stayed at some of the deluxe hotels but I don't think he's ever stayed at WL.

    I was torn between there and AKL but after looking at pictures and reading reviews, decided WL had a slight edge. Especially because they have a water launch to MK and I absolutely love taking that instead of the buses. Plus, Joe has stayed at AKL before so that was primarily the tie-breaker.

    The best part of this all is, I'm not going to tell him! I'm going to let him think we're still staying at ASMo. I wonder if he'll pick up on the fact that we're not going the right way as we're heading back from the cruise ship. He knows the All Stars are near AK so when he doesn't see us driving in that direction and that I'm following signs for MK instead....that will be the tip off. But there's so many resorts in that area, he won't know which one til we pull up to the sign! :)

    Now the trick is to keep this a secret from him! :ssst:

    OMG! You are going to love the WL. What a sweet surprise for DBF. It will be so hard not to tell him!

    That's great!

    It's going to be tough not to tell him! I tell him everything. It kept running through my head yesterday and I wanted to be like 'I have a surprise for you!' but I'm going to keep him completely in the dark. I know he's looking forward to staying at ASMo since he loves everything having to do with movies but I doubt he'll be disappointed! I had to make sure he had never stayed there so I passed it off like I was asking him about it for a client. I was like "Have you ever stayed at WL? I have clients interested in going there and don't know much about it." When of course, wdwinfo has all the information I could ever need.

    He's been working so hard editing the movie he filmed last summer that I figured he deserved a little extra pampering. I can't wait to see the look on his face. :)

    I'm so excited. The hotel looks absolutely gorgeous! Have you ever eaten at Whispering Canyon Cafe? It looks fun!
