Dining Question

intercot.com - Sun, 2017-05-21 21:15
I am at the 180 day mark tomorrow. Is there a special time that I would start booking my reservations? I haven't been to WDW since you could book dining online. I remember waiting til 7am when the phone lines opened. Any advice is appreciated.

Greetings!

Someone sent me a QuickTime video, and for some reason it's upside-down. Is there any way I can rotate it 180 degrees?

Thanks!

Under 3 & Rivers of Light dining Package

intercot.com - Sun, 2017-05-21 13:42
We are doing the Tiffins Rivers of Light Dining package on our next trip. Since our son is 2, can we just order him the kids meal, at the a la carte price and not the package price, while DH and I are doing the dining package price? The difference is $9 versus $26 for my kid who eats like a bird. Since he isn't 3 yet I know we aren't required to pay for the dining package for him but wasn't sure what would happen if we order him a meal.

Construction Permits Filed for Potential Expansion at Epcot

Reedy Creek has filed Permit#: 48-00714-P with the South Florida Water Management District for a project titled Epcot Canal Modifications:

The project's official purpose according to the permits is to:

Of note, the area outlined in blue appears to be a new structure that is being speculated (but not confirmed) to be a new show building:



The proximity of this mystery structure seems reasonably approachable from existing Guest areas and appears to explain the potential cause of the re-location of the existing canal. Attached Images

I may have made a mistake...

intercot.com - Sat, 2017-05-20 21:11
I went ahead and booked Hard Rock (oddly enough, there was nothing left but Club Level at Royal Pacific!) for next May. I picked from the big three because I wanted those Express passes. Now by doing the math I see that if I did Sapphire Falls and paid out of pocket for Unlimited Express passes,...

Adding the Dining Plan to an Existing Reservation

intercot.com - Sat, 2017-05-20 14:02
I'm hoping that someone can answer this question for me. We are annual passholders and have scheduled an upcoming trip to coincide with a conference being held at one of the resorts. Because of the conference, we were able to get a fantastic group rate on the onsite room. When I spoke with the agent in charge of group reservations, she told me that I couldn't add the dining plan because they were linked to the price of the room. I told her that I was willing to pay the full daily price of the plan, but she said that it couldn't be done. (Usually I don't purchase the plan, but we will be there during a busy time of year, and don't want to leave property.) Has anyone done this before? If so, how would I go about adding it?

Reservations the Same Time as Park Opening

intercot.com - Sat, 2017-05-20 04:22
We made breakfast reservations for Cinderella's Royal Table at 9 AM on a day the park opens at 9 AM. Will we be able to get in to the Magic Kingdom early so we can get to our reservation on time?

For what it's worth, we're staying offsite. So, we won't be able to take advantage of extra magic hours if they're offered that day.

Thanks.
