Log in or Sign up to hide this advert.
List has been updated. Let me know if something is not correct.
We've extended our stay through the Sept 14th. We were originally going to leave on Friday, until I realized it would be Friday the 13th. There's no way I'm driving 800 miles on that day!
Now we'll get to go to the Villains party Woot!
We're going from September 7th - September 14th, staying at Movies. All ADRs were made last week!
Just wanted to thank you for keeping things up to date! Lots of work for you.
We can be added to the list:
09/21/13 to 09/28/13 AKV Kidani
180 day mark!!!!! Up at 5:45am, got on the phone right at 6am(local time), only on hold for 5 minutes, able to book everything we wanted at the times we wanted (or within 15 minutes), including BOG for 6pm!!!
Just stopping in to say.....
6 MONTHS FROM TODAY!!!!
Now, we just need to decide if we're going to fly or if we'll be driving!! Decisions, decisions!!
Yay!! Just got off the phone with Dining Reservations and I got ALL my ADR's at the times I wanted!! Woo Hoo!!!!!
Awesome!!! I call tomorrow morning! Fingers crossed we get everything we want! I see you decided to drive in the over 2000 mile thread. .
Good Luck tomorrow!!! I was suprised that I got all the times I wanted too. I wonder if this is a good sign for very low crowds?!
Yeah, we were going to fly, but once we added up airfare, bag fees, etc...it actually ended up being cheaper to drive. Plus this way we can work in time to stop in Melbourne and visit a friend from high school. Surprisingly enough the boys are super psyched about the drive. Let just hope those happy vibes last once we hit the road in September!
I'm sure your kids will still be super psyched...it's Disney after all . We are still holding tight to our secret and the kids have no idea. I"m a bit scared of the drive down...4 kids fighting in the back of the van??? we are leaving around 2 am (trying to convince my husband to leave after he gets home from work the day before, but not looking good) I'm hoping hte kids will sleep alot of the way, but I'm not really sure they will once we let them in on the surprise.
I made my ADR's this morning and we got all the places we want!
Crystal Palace breakfast
Chef Mickey Breakfast
Yak and Yeti
Cape May Cafe Clam Bake
I only had to call three times
I tried to make my reservations online and of course, it wouldn't let me go past the first day...I managed to make my crystal palace breakfast but nothing else. I called right at 7 and got right through
Made everything else and was happy with most of the times...only one that I had trouble with was Yak and Yeti. we were hoping for a 1 pm or near that and all that was left was 3pm. that's OK though! I'll keep calling to see if anything opens up earlier
I get off the phone and go to mydisney experience to see if everything linked and it did, but...I realized when I made my crystal palace, it wasn't for our first day, it was for TODAY!!! OMG I called right back and the castmember was super sweet and helped me out. She was able to cancel the reservation with no penalties and get us the right day...I was so worried we would be charged because the cancleation was for this morning...but since I made a mistake, she was able to get it corrected
I hang up and look through the rest of the ressies and realize that I made the last one on the wrong day...I made the cape may clam bake on the same day as Yak and Yeti...oops...I call back and get a another great cast member and get it fixed in no time...
everything is set! I never made my own ADR's before, always had the travel agent at AAA do it for us, but this time, I wanted to make sure I was in control of it, and I still screwed it up,
but it's all good now and I'm super excited! now the wait till sept...
We are going Sept 20-29 staying at AoA LM room for now but will happily move for FD. I will be up bright and. Early tomorrow to make our ADRs.
Congrats on getting the ADRs you wanted.
I was able to get all the ones I wanted on my 180 day out, even BOG on Friday the 13th.
As yesterday our trip is 100% paid off. Now we just have to wait for the announcement of FD.
Congrats on everyone getting their ADR's they wanted. We got everything we wanted also. Now just waiting to see if and what discounts they come out with. Still not 100% on where we are staying.
The website won't let me add my dining reservations. I wonder why? I really do not like the my magic thing. I liked the old site much better
We are going to Disney for our first visit. We are planning on Sept., and hoping for 15-21st.
Waiting to see what the offers are for fall...although right now, I am getting POR - Riverside cheapest for our family ($200/night). Which is strange...
When you called, did you use the same email and phone number that is associated with your Disney account? My adr's weren't showing up, but I clicked on the little button on the right side of the screen that said update reservations and it pulled them all into my account.
Thanks, Laura. I did try that last night, but it didn't work. Weird thing, I just logged in to try again and ....it took it! OH YEAH!! So all my dining ressies are showing up! Woo hoo!! That means: only a tad bit left to pay off on the package, a hotel to find in Savanah for the over night stop on the way down and finally.....try to make it through the next few months of waiting!
And HOLY CRAP....we're the same age too! I just saw your signature! That's so weird....we're both from the PA, both love Disney AND the same age! *cue twilight zone music*
