PS victory!

Called this morning and got exactly what we wanted...PSB on 12/8. Yeah!! I was a little concerned. Started calling just before 7. Office was closed a couple of times, and then when it was open, I immediately got put on hold for SIX minutes!! Grrrrrrrrr!! Anyway, I was surprised and excited to get what I wanted. Also got Le Cellier for dinner that night and Rainforest lunch for the day before, so things are good.

We've also re-vamped our plans a bit and if I can get a PS that we want for that Friday night, we're going to ditch the CP reservation that we made. Hubby suggested we take the time we would have used for CP...use it earlier in the day and just spend the time in each country listening to each Santa. I think the kids would probably enjoy that more and although we've heard several, we've never heard very many....Gotta link a way for the kids to do a report on our trip and this will probably be it... We'll probably plan next year to do the CP. I was just not happy with the time sequence that we got....it was backward from what we wanted, and they did away with the 15% shopping discount this year. Maybe next year it will be back.

Tomorrow I will call for our dinner at O'Hanas!! We haven't done that before and I'm excited!!

Ok...that's it..

Have a great day!

sorry, candlelight processional. I think I will hang onto the dinner package until the entertainers are announced, and then if it is someone we REALLY want to see, we'll do the package. otherwise, we'll just use a PS and not do the package.

Up until this year we could use our disney dining card to get 20% off the packages, plus we got a 15% discount in all the Epcot shops for the day of our package. Really made it worth it. This year there is no disney dining discount, and there is also no 15% shopping discount. Plus we were having to see the show at a time we didn't want and we couldn't get the restaurant we wanted. I just didn't realize that when they came out that you could book all days so I didn't get on the horn quick enough to get our first choice. Certainly my fault, but without the discounts it's not quite as attractive a package.
