When your reservation is 1/2 peak & half regular season

intercot.com - Tue, 2017-03-21 21:16
We are arriving on the last day of peak season (April 8). Reservations are April 8-10. Will they adjust the rate according or are you stuck with whatever the rate is on the first day of your ressie?

That would really, REALLY stink but part of me thinks there was a big ol' rigamarole about this not long ago...

2 Days On Property after April1-8 cruse - HELP. : )

intercot.com - Tue, 2017-03-21 18:18
OH MY - I want to edit that post title so badly - CRUISE. LOL. How do I change the title?


We are no rookies to Disney - but I'm either too exhausted or too excited to think to plan properly.

We are headed to March 30 to enjoy 1 day at the "other" park. Then hopping aboard the Fantasy for 7 nights. We will have 2 days/2 nights for Disney fun. We are veterans - but I just can NOT think. I think I'm out of the loop because I've not been reading all my Disney emails. LOL

So here is the quandary (If you can even call it that). I'm about ready to have them push the button for 2 nights at Poly. And my hubby wants us to get AP's. When I told the cast member that on the phone just now she said it would be "easier" to just buy 2 day tickets so I can go ahead and book fast passes and then upgrade to AP's when we arrive. Ummm....why? I asked her and she said "What are you going to attach to your ressie so you can get fast passes? I said - well - my AP's. She said - well - that is more complicated for YOU....because _________ (and then she just trailed off in nonsense). What could she possibly mean?

We've had AP's many times. In the past - they just attached them to my on property reservation and I can make AP's right away. What am I missing?

Also - given the time that I'm going - Am I missing out on any discounts (other than room discounts) or savings plans that I've not thought of? HELP. Thanks!

Where would you eat fourth of july

intercot.com - Tue, 2017-03-21 17:50
What would be the best option to see fireworks and eat on 4 of July? I plan to see the MK fireworks July 3 since they show the same show both nights. So where to go on the 4th?

I was thinking Epcot but I have never seen DHS fireworks. Any thoughts, or tips?:mickey:

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is on the road to being another mega-hit for Walt Disney Studios. But at one time it was questionable if it was even going to be a musical. Thankfully cooler heads prevailed and we have the beautiful lavish live-action $160 million production that is entertaining...

Dog kennel

intercot.com - Mon, 2017-03-20 21:01
We're planning a big road trip mostly with parks and scenery but wanted to spend a couple days at Disneyland. We're trying to decide whether or not to bring our beloved dog along. The rest of the trip will be dog friendly and I read that DLR does have some limited dog kenneling available. I'm wondering if anybody knows how it is. I know it says we'd need to let her out every 4 hours (no problem, I'd want to make sure she's ok anyway) and they don't provide any type of service like feeding or walking.. Is it air conditioned? Is it safe? Is there a way to reserve a kennel ahead of time. I'd hate to get there after driving from Wisconsin only to find out there's no room for her.
thanks!

Park days and FP+ Strategy/advice

intercot.com - Mon, 2017-03-20 20:25
We'll be in parks M-F and I'm planning our days and FP. HS and Epcot are likely half day parks for us, just because my kids are much more interested in MK and AK.

I'm considering the following schedule.

Day 1 - HS in AM, AK in the evening for ROL (schedule FP at HS)
Day 2 - MK all day
Day 3 - AK in AM, EPCOT in the evening (schedule FP at EPCOT)
Day 4 - MK all day
Day 5 - AK all day, departing from the World late afternoon.

Thoughts?

The only thing we really want to do at EPCOT is Soarin and Frozen, both in Tier 1, so will have to standby for one of them. If we can FP Frozen we will and standby Soarin. If we can't FP Frozen we will likely skip it unless the standby line is not very long (unlikely).

At HS TSM, ToT, and the Frozen Sing Along are on our FP list.

At AK EE, FotLK, Safari, RoL, Dinosaur, Nemo show are all in the running for FP.

At MK Seven Dwarfs, Peter Pan, Big Thunder, Dumbo, Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted Mansion, It's a Small World, and Jungle Cruise are on our list.

Sorry this is long. I know we'll have fun regardless of what we do.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts and advice you have. :mickey:
