Growing up in the Pacific Northwest we often visited our family down in Southern California. Inevitably these trips would include a day or two at Disneyland, sometimes we’d even take a train to the park. Those were great trips. You still can take the train to Disneyland and now, thanks...

Free watch at Luxury of Time

intercot.com - Mon, 2018-02-19 13:39
I am trying to add photos to this post, but can't figure it out for the life of me, but anyway. If there are any admin that can some how include the pics for me on this post?

DVC members can receive a free watch at the Luxury of Time store in Disney Springs if anyone is interested.

It's nothing special, just cute cheap costume jewelry type watch. But figured I would let everyone know. I picked mine up a few weeks ago.

Also, if you mention the ad for Luxury of Time on the back of the Disney Springs map they are also giving out necklaces, but I didn't get one because I forgot about it when I was there.

Fastpass question

intercot.com - Mon, 2018-02-19 13:27
I am so confused with Fastpass (I think I'm overthinking it) - I haven't used Fastpass (advance reservations) - I have only used Fastpass when they first came out with it many years ago and you had to do it in the park. So my first question is - do you have to have park tickets before you can reserve your Fastpasses? I have a "Room Only" reservation for May (so I know that it's still a little early - I have to be 60 days out before I can do Fastpasses) - but we typically don't purchase park tickets until we check in at the hotel. And then my following question is - how exactly does this work -- am I limited to how many Fastpasses I can do in a day? Thanks so much in advance.

second seating dining

intercot.com - Sun, 2018-02-18 02:33
I booked a cruise for the end of August three weeks ago. I noticed I am in second seating for dining. This does not work for my family. My DH has medical issues and my DD has serious allergies. She was told on previous cruises with Disney not to eat at the buffet and to pre-order all meals.

I called to see if I could change seating to the main dining time and was told sorry it is sold out. I am on the wait list. She proceeded to say you don't have to eat in the restaurants, Cabannas is available as is in stateroom dinning and quick bites like pizza. Am I wrong to be disappointed with this suggestion? Eating in the MDR is a big deal. The atmosphere, the "show" at Animators Palette, and the food itself is a big deal to us. I also pre paid gratuities and will not even be provided with the wait staff for dinner meals. I would not change the amounts I know it is out of their control. I just think this response lame. It like saying you can always swim in the tub in your room if the pool is too crowded.

Also anyone have any suggestions for getting the change without being "that person" you know that person every CM cringes and runs away from.

Disney Vacation Cancellation UPDATE

intercot.com - Sat, 2018-02-17 17:36
Horror story alert:
I had to cancel my Disney World vacation back in January. Originally I paid with 2 $500.00 gift cards and after a long scuffle with them over the phone they refunded me with a $1,000 gift card to the Disney Store. To date, I've done everything to actually get a monetary value from this card.
I can't sell it E-bay or Amazon because of a $500.00 gift card selling limit. I can't buy groceries with it. If I sell it on a gift card selling sight they only want to give me $700.00.
I called Disney today and told them I did not originally give them a $1,000 gift card, I gave them 2 $500.00 gift cards and I should have been refunded accordingly. They tell me no refunds or transfers are allowed.
All I want is what I gave them so I can get my money back. Nope. I'm screwed out of $1,000.
The kicker here is the "Cast member" on the phone actually said to me, " You wouldn't want to spend your money at the Disney Store?" I told her, "I didn't cancel my vacation to buy stuffed mice and autograph books."
So, lesson learned today. DO NOT PAY FOR YOUR VACATION WITH GIFT CARDS if you ever want your money back.
