Thank you Dansdad. I have a compact one I use at home for sleeping so I will just plan on packing it!
We were at POR till last weekend. The bus stops at POFQ were moved to a sectioned off area of the carpark - there were two big white tents so there is some shade/shelter. Sorry no photos!Starts on Monday, but I don't know how long it will take. It's not a major issue though, it'll just mean that buses depart from the other side of the driveway (left as you walk out of the lobby instead of right). Hopefully someone will upload pics next week.
Yes - they must have changed the policy from the $1000, because last week we went to pay off our magic band charges, and found out that they had debited our credit card already as the bill had just gone over the $500.00.Got the same thing at Coronado Springs last september, was charged to my credt card at 500$ When I asked about it being at 500$ instead of the usual 1000$, the CM told me they lowered it because of more people not having the 1000$ available on the card (And then they had to try and get the person to pay up...)
I really think it is quite funny to watch everyone lose their minds trying to book to get the free dining. We save much more a day purchasing a military room only reservation and mil tickets. I doubt there are any ADRs left for those dates anyway for people. I hope everyone trying to get in is able to get what they would like, but you wouldn't find me in that crowd.As you may have noticed, Disney has today released their Free Disney Dining Plan offer to encourage bookings for the slower Autumn/Fall season, valid for visits commencing on selected dates between 28 August 2015 and 21 December 2015.
However, once again, Port Orleans French Quarter has been completely excluded from the offer this year, while Riverside has a few rooms available for the first month only, from 28 August to 2 October.
It's well worth checking to see what other deals are available on the dates you plan to travel, as unless you are a group of 3+ people staying in one room, and are big eaters in the first place, it can sometimes work out cheaper to get a better room-only discount and then pay for food as you go. 'Free' dining isn't always quite the deal it first seems once you crunch the numbers.
