    Anyone else get this?:

    Dear Milesource member,

    We at are aware that the retail gift card you purchased with
    your Milesource Reward Certificate has not yet shipped. We apologize for the
    delay and any inconvenience it may have caused you.

    As an expression of our regret, we have made arrangements with Milesource to
    award you an extra 125 AwardMiles. These AwardMiles will appear on your
    Account Balance by June 6, 2003.

    Unfortunately, many of our retail gift cards are still on back order. During
    this delay, we would like to offer you the following options:

    (1) You can keep the order for the retail gift card, which we expect will ship
    to you by the middle of June.

    (2) You can replace the order for your retail gift card and we will restore the
    balance to your Milesource Reward Certificate, which you can then use to shop
    online IMMEDIATELY.

    If you choose the second option, we have very exciting news for you – You can
    now DOUBLE YOUR CERTIFICATE VALUE at our newest on-line merchant:

    Simply shop online at and your Milesource certificate is
    double its face value at thousands of local neighborhood restaurants across
    So a $25 certificate can be redeemed for $50 in restaurant certificates.

    If you would like to upgrade your Gift Card order and double your purchasing
    power at, just go to
    Fill in your e-mail address and your Milesource Reward Certificate number, if
    you have it handy. Please note that if you do not have your Milesource Reward
    Certificate number, it may take us slightly longer to restore your balance.

    You will be able to exchange your order via the link above through June 15th,
    unless your gift card order ships prior to your request submission.

    Whichever option you choose, you will still receive the extra 125 AwardMiles.

    If you have any questions, you can reach a GiveAnything customer service
    at (877) 922-GIVE ext-200.

    Again, we apologize for the delay and the inconvenience. We appreciate your


    Customer Service

    Of course, I immediately checked what has available for the Orlando area, and the only option that's within Disney property is Baskerville's at the Grosvenor Resort. Has anyone eaten here before? Judging from what I've found on the web it looks like they have several reasonably priced buffets, including a character breakfast. I think we could easily eat there twice for $50 (2 adults and 2 kids under 3). Anyone know if there's a way to get there besides driving? I'm one of those people who wants to park the car when we get there and not step back in until we have to (sob) go home.

    We ate at Baskerville's a few years ago. Actually went to the Mystery Dinner Theatre. Don't know if they still have that. I've seen better dinner theatre. But if I remember, the food wasn't that bad. Hey, "free food" is "free food," right?

    I would think you could take a bus to Downtown Disney, and then one to the hotel, but don't quote me on that. I think we drove when we went.

    I haven't received this email, not yet anyway. But I did just email them about an Old Navy gift cert. that I haven't received.

    I also received this e-mail yesterday. I don't remember them owing me anything. It must be a mistake. I will probably e-mail them and ask them to double check on this. Maybe I'm having a "senior moment"

    Interesting email. I'm waiting on my GC order, so I think I'd better go check my email.
    We went to the dinner theater at Grosvenor with the group from DIS-CON in Dec. We drove to the hotel & actually took the easy walk over to DD for a while before the show, as the parking lot at DD was packed. A lot of the DIS-CON attendees did take the bus to DD, then walked over to Grosvenor, no problem.
