For the quotes I've been getting it looks like a very good option for me. No front of the line pass but since I'm planning a slower time of the year I don't think that will be a problem and we'll still get early entry.

FWIW Sheila, I signed up for special offers and did get a mailing for 40% 2 years in a row. We used it in November at RPR ad our CL room was $239/nt

Sounds like a great plan Sheila And that price that Linda gave us can't be beat.

That would be great especially since Disney is so stingy with their pins. Last one I got was back in 2010 for 40% and of course that was the trip we had to cancel

I have to say though I have Bob all psyched for the Poly

I've never gotten a mailing from WDW, but I've called and had them I was very happy to get the PIN! It definitely swayed us to RPR this last trip

I am so glad Bob is digging a Poly stay

No clue as we never made an ADR there...but keep in the mind there is a great counter service in the WWoHP...appropriately named the "Three Broomsticks" We all loved it!!

Hi, Jeanette! You have a beautiful family! I am from a family of five siblings, too (I am the oldest) and it is wonderful having so many brothers and sisters! So, on to the trip planning… I see you are planning on staying at HRH! HRH is the frontrunner for our stay. I was thinking about PBH but my son saw HRH and he asked to stay there. I’m giving myself another week or two to decide before I book. I am also a perpetual resort changer, so we’ll see what happens Thank you for the tip about not paying in full in advance, because I was going to do exactly that! How exciting that you get to have a Disney Day for your birthday AND you will have dinner at 1900 Park Fare!

Here is a shocker...we have never made ADR's for Universal. They have kiosks set up around the parks that you can make reservations for the day of. We have even taken our chances at Mythos with no reservations. We just showed up about 15 minutes before they opened(11:00) and were seated within 10 minutes. This was the first week of July also. We ate at The Three Broomsticks for lunch without ADR's too.

You're welcome! It was a mess, my CC was double charged..ugh. It was fixed but 2 hours on check out morning...not happy and truthfully it brought me to tears from frustration. PBH is amazing..that's the problem they are ALL amazing..for a fellow resort changer that's dangerous Even if you are at PBH maybe hop over to the pool I'll buy ya a drink
