    :thumbsup2 thanks would make things a lot easier :)

    :rotfl2: maybe I just needed a heart starter today!
    It's the 3rd night it would probably be easier if it was the last night it's a Friday so hopefully they will change their plans ;)

    What a silly question!!!!!!

    Of course it's not and of course you're not (and I'm not only saying that because we're doing WDW, a Disney cruise and Disneyland too :rolleyes1)

    We would have spent a good 4 hours at Alcatraz I think. We did the audio tour and watched the movie at the start then once the audio tour was over we wandered back around outside and just soaked in the atmosphere.

    Wonder if they are going to have %off? I'm waiting for that for my aunt and cousins as they are going to WDW.


    I'm going to be at DL so don't need the FD watch for myself.

    I thought WDW had already announced their %discount off rack rates? The discounts are currently available through to August sometime. Are your family travelling in September?

    I have just now noticed this free-dining rumor. The Dining Plan Thread is going crazy with talk of the free dining, so I'm guessing that this Danny guy must be pretty reliable.

    It doesn't benefit me as not only do my dates fall outside this, but I'm not eligible for free dining.
    However, I do expect ADRs over my dates to suddenly become much harder to grab. People beginning their holiday on or just before Sep 25th will potentially be eligible for free dining up to 2 weeks after this and I've heard that free-dining makes the restaurants much busier.

    So I think if anyone hasn't secured their September and early October ADRs yet, now would be a good time to do it.

    I booked all of mine back at Easter, but I've rung Disney two more times since then to make changes and one addition. There are so many finer details I didn't previously think about, such as times for the Eat to the Beat concerts, the times the band plays at Biergarten, or even getting to restaurants at opening to try and get good seats.

    I don't know if I should consider myself an effective planner, or just plain obsessed. :rolleyes:

    FD doesn't impact me either; but I agree with Wanderlust. Gonna be harder to get ADRs for that period now.

    They look great. It makes sense having so many Epcot ADRs given that you will be a hop, step and a jump from the back gate of Epcot.
    I'm so excited about my 5 nights at the BWV for that exact reason. Food, glorious food ...

    That's the benefit of the Epcot resorts.....proximity to all those fabulous restaurants at the World Showcase; and Food and Wine booths. :thumbsup2
