|The Plan (version 1)
||[Nov. 8th, 2006|07:32 pm]
So tell me how this sounds...|
Jenna and Amy and my party all arrive pretty early on Friday.
I believe Jenna checks in at SSR that day. We, however, are staying the night at the Contemporary. This is not 'on the books' so Disney doesn't know we're there.
The problem with that is we could only get our DDP to start on Saturday, Dec. 2.
So after talking to Randy, I think this is the plan... (And I don't want to volunteer Randy for anything if I misunderstood what he was saying.)
We all have fun on Friday.
* Saturday morning, I get up around 6 a.m.
* Randy picks me up in his ever so convenient car and we go over to SSR.
* I pay for and pick up our DDP stuff and we get Carol and Jenna.
* We go back over to the CR and meet up with Connie, David, Ryan and Amy, and then we head over to the Magic Kingdom.
* I'll have bell services move our luggage over to SSR for when we check in there later, after dinner at 'Ohana. During which I will likely consume two 'Ohana Coladas, and vow never to return home to New Hampshire, and instead start looking for a job somewhere within the Reedy Creek District.
This is because we'll need our DDP stuff when we enter the MK. And I don't want to miss Katie entering the MK.
How's that sound?
First of all, is David actually Snub? Because otherwise Connie's got some 'splaining to do. Also, on your second to last bullet point, are we leaving Katie at the CR or are we meeting her, too? (Heh.)
Second, you are completely correct about me checking in to SSR on Friday at about 10:00 AM. I will try to get us all into the Springs at that time, with COngress Park as the second choice. I sent Randy some information to update the Excel file with my info, but I don't think he got it. I used the e-mail addy I found on the DIS (it's so convenient when people use the same username on various locations, ChefBilly).
I assume Saturday morning in further detail is after picking me and Carol up, we park Randy's car at the Contemporary, take the monorail over to MK, take the monorail to Polynesian for dinner, take the monorail back to CR to get the car and then head to SSR. I'm thinking Randy's car won't be big enough to transport everyone, so I'll volunteer to take the bus from the Polynesian to DTD and either walk, ferry, or bus back to SSR. Either that, or I suppose some of us could get a cab.
I think it's a very sound plan, but you may want to make sure that they aren't still requiring every member of the party to be present to get the keys and DDP. I don't know if that's something they were just requiring during free dining to make sure people weren't adding free meal ghosties, or if it's SOP. Also, DDP has to be paid on check-in, so make sure you have that worked out with your party beforehand.
Also, are we still on for dinner at Raglan Road on Friday?
We've got ADRs for Whispering Canyon at night, but Raglan Road for lunch? Or, my MIL was interested in Earl 'o Sammich.
What do you think/is that cool with you?
I should call you tonight or tomorrow to make sure you're happy with everything. I know the spreadsheet is missing a couple things.
Still... 21 days. I really need it at this point.
The Earl sounds great. That's actually where I was planning to get lunch. Besides, you wouldn't want to eat a big meal for lunch and then face one of those skillets at Whispering Canyon. I may try Turf Club or head into one of the parks for dinner, then (although, Raglan Road's bread and butter pudding is a big draw). Eh, 21 days to decide!
I'll be out of town for the evening tomorrow night. I will be at home tonight, though. And possibly on Saturday, too.
I forgot to mention this- I got my AP voucher on Monday! Yay!
