    Annual Passholder and DVC Previews Watch

    I wish there wouldn't have been a pre-announcement for SWGE. We are all waiting around like idiots waiting for this thing to drop. And who knows if it will even drop this week?

    There has to be a better way to control the rope drop crowd. For the safety of everyone.

    Annual Passholder and DVC Previews Watch

    Is there a way to receive an "alert" if a thread is posted to a forum with a certain set of words (e.g., "Annual Passholder Preview"? Then, it's just a matter of posting a new thread with the link to the SWGE form when it goes live and we'll all receive a notification. I asked this question in...

    Bounceback Information and FAQ Thread (updated with latest bounceback for 2019 dates)

    Well that's what we had been told, but I haven't received confirmation that they will actually cancel the other rooms. If you are the guest staying onsite and booking the Bouncebacks, you can cancel the other rooms without canceling your room. I think they can apply the discount to the...

    How does after hours event work for regular park visitors?

    From easywdw.com's review: "Unlike the After Hours events elsewhere, there’s a concerted effort to clear the Park with several walls of cast members sending those without wristbands towards the exit beginning right at 10pm. If they didn’t, then those who didn’t pay would be able to linger long...

    Disney's Club Level (CL) Information and Questions

    Anyone going to AKL soon that can give an update on the construction and refurbishment progress? TIA! P.S., we did not get a daily itinerary printed at BWI in May. I'm sure it depends on staffing and occupancy levels.

    Annual Passholder and DVC Previews Watch

    Do we have any sense how many Platinum and Platinum Plus APers are out there? When the math was being done about how they could not do reservations for SWGE for onsite hotels, it always came to the thousands number of onsite guests that would miss it due to capacity. Isn't that the same problem...

    When cast members say "oh yeah, looks like everything is almost booked for 2020" - do they actually know?

    Thank you for confirming. I’ll amend my post to say sales quotas. In my mind, it’s similar because they need to try to make the sale. They are sales people. But, I’ll correct It to sales quotas to make it accurate.

    AP prices increased [6/18/2019]

    Wow! We bought our Platinum Passes in October. We are out of state and paid $849+tax ($904). That same pass would cost now (with tax) is now $1192, an increase of $288 per person in only 9 months. It would have cost my family of 4 and extra $1,150! That would no have been worth it at all. I...

    Jambo! The newest AKL Information thread

    I would imagine that DSS would be able to find out for us. They have a schedule, and while things can fall behind schedule, it should give us a pretty good idea. Let me know what you find out and I will do the same.

    When do AP discounts come out?

    If you order an AP now, you will have a "virtual" voucher in your MDE account. You will have to go to Guest Relations to get it activated.

    Annual Passholder and DVC Previews Watch

    Shocked, the spires aren't even covered yet. Maybe they will hand APers, as they walk into the land, fans to dry the paint :rotfl2: . I'm SUPER glad that I haven't finalized plans yet for SWGE. I can wait and see what they offer and decide when to go. Problem is that I have yet to receive a...

    When cast members say "oh yeah, looks like everything is almost booked for 2020" - do they actually know?

    Of course they are going to say everything is sold out. They are sales people and have sales quotas. It's called "the scarcity principle" and it's a regular sales tactic: "only a few rooms available, book with me today to ensure you don't get shut out." LOL...

    11 yr old not liking adult menus, flexibility question.

    Restaurants will allow your child to order from the child's menu. However, if the child is more than 9 years old and it's a prix fixe meal, they will pay the adult price, even if they order the kid's meal. That's how it's priced. I realize this does not gel with many families' eating habits. My...

    If your tix disappear from MDE, call IT !

    Great question! 700 doesn't sound like much at all. If you have a family of 4 and you make 3 FPs per day and add more and modify them throughout the day, it wouldn't take that many trips to get to 700. Is there anything we can proactively do? Would hate for this to break down in the middle of a...

    Ticket Questions about upcoming split stay

    If you want to use tickets before the package, buy your tickets and hotel separately; don't make it a package with tickets. When the transition to date-based tickets occurred, TAs were told that date-based package tickets cannot be activated early. Also, you would not be able to make FPs in...

    We'll be there July 25-28 and all 4 days were extended AK to 10 pm. I'm not seeing any changes to the MK hours though.
