DH and I are leaving in about 3 weeks for a triple split stay. First night at the Poly, second night at the WL, and the next 7 nights at POR. We booked using our 35% mod/40% deluxe PIN offer, then added 10-day park-hoppers and the dining plan to our POR reservation. We know that we have three separate reservations and that the dining plan only applies to the POR one. We are fine with that, as all of our ADRs are during our POR stay and we plan to eat OOP at less expensive places the first 2 days. A few questions have arisen due to the multiple reservations, though: 1.) We have an ADR for lunch at Teppan Edo on the day we are checking out of WL and into POR. We were hoping to go to EMH at Epcot that morning and stay through lunch. However, since we want to use the dining plan for this meal, do we have to go check in at POR that morning before lunch to use it? Or is there any way to activate the dining plan from a park or from the WL? 2.) The park tickets are attached to our POR reservation, but we intend to use them the first two days also. From what I understand, we can go to guest services at the MK on our first day and get our tickets early. Sounds like it is kind-of a pain, but do-able. Has anyone done this? Is guest services inside the park and, if so, how would we get in to do this without tickets in hand? Also, we are planning to upgrade to AP, as we are hoping to visit a few more times in 2010. When is the best time to do this? Can we just do this when we get the tickets? Or will that cancel our DDP? We are thinking about getting the TIW card (mostly for future trips), so if we can upgrade to AP right away, we can use TIW on our OOP meals the first couple days. 3.) We plan to purchase a refillable mug. I'm seeing conflicting things about it though. I thought I read that the mugs can only be used at the resort at which they are purchased. But I also read that all the resorts are using the same mugs. So, do we have to wait until we get to POR to get one or can we get one at the Poly and bring it with us for the remainder of our trip? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!
