I have only posted here once (a long time ago), but have been lurking A LOT. I just wanted to say that thanks to all of the wonderful tips I got here I was able to get PS for CRT this morning! My Dh doesn't seem to understand how excited I am about this so I thought I would come celebrate here. We are going to DW after Thanksgiving and I am going to run out now to get my DD a Cinderella costume for Halloween so she can also wear it to the breakfast!

I would say that starting to call before 7:00 was definitely key since I actually got through and was on hold at 6:59 (weather channel time).

We have been able to get all of the things that I wanted, Breakfastosaurus for my DS, CRT for DD (and me) and tickets to the Christmas party. I am so excited, I can't believe I still have almost 3 mos to wait!

we're coming in right behind you...our official count down is at 94 days until we march around the table singing the mickey mouse march again tomorrow.lol.

BIG congrats on getting CRT. last year I tried every day for 10 days and never did get it. We've been a few times before and the food is excellent and you will have a nice time. We are trying for PSB in Epcot and hopefully I can get that to click in for us....

I start next week making our PS's. If you are planning to attend the Candlelight Processional and take advantage of the dinner package, be sure and call NOW, even if it is more than 90 days away. They are booking ALL night of CP. I almost missed out on our selected day so it is now my mission to warn others!! :-)

Congrats again on all your plans and everything falling into place. You will have a magical trip!!

Good for you!!! I know how you feel! I came here to celebrate at 60 days out when I got my own CRT and Chef Mickey's PSs. I was "about to burst" then and didn't know HOW I'd EVER keep it a secret from DD-9...but I have, and we leave in 30 days. Yay!!! Melanie

Melanie, I don't know how you have kept CRT a secret!! I'm keeping our upgrade from All Stars to Port Orleans a secret and that is hard!! And we're going to do the ICE event at Gaylord Palms and the kids don't know about that one either...and every day it gets harder for me to not tell!!!

DITTO! DITTO! DITTO!!!!

DD4 was a little concerned about me this a.m. as i scrambled out of the shower & sat on the floor in a towel muttering "come on, come on..." while pounding away at 2 phones' redial buttons for 5+ minutes..... but it worked!! i thought i'd blown it when i was put on hold, but then the agent said she'd been staring at her silent phone for a good couple of minutes after the lines were officially opened.

got 8:55 am PS for 3 on our 1st full day there, a wednesday. should i push it & try for an earlier or later time on a different day???

starting to call before 7's the best advice i've seen....!! ....so THANKS!!!

Hooray!!Congratulations!! That is great news!! And yes, this is the place to celebrate!!

I've had to apologize here before when I buy something at the Disney Store online and I've really been trying to buy most of my Disney purchases in the store, but I have to share. There is a sale online for princess costumes. If you buy at least 2 princess costume accessories (crown, shoes), you get 20% off the dress and accessories. Also if you spend more than $75, there is free shipping and handling.

I've had my eye on both Cinderella and Aurora for my girls (although not necessarily for halloween) and couldn't justify buying both with the whole ensemble. This way I felt much better 'splaining myself to DH!

I'm not sure how long this sale is running; one of the sales ends today, so if you're interested, check it out quick!

If you do go to TDS and pick up a catalog, you can get free shipping on any priced order. I don't know if the source code is consistent with TDS you actually went to, or if it helps that store in ANY way. But if there IS something you want to/have to purchase online, that's a good way to go (such as for the waffle iron, that still hasn't come in at the store yet. Last year, they had the Pooh/Tigger one that MIKE wanted (but not Mickey), now Aly rathers that one over Mickey..so if it does come in, I'll probably snag it.)

And for the record, ;o)..the ONLY thing I've EVER purchased from the catalog that WAS available in the store was a huge Beauty & the Beast globe, that I'm just too clumsy to walk through the mall with!! LOL
