    Just here to report that I received my AP refund check from Disney yesterday. This was for an AP purchased with gift cards. It made me feel relieved, but also a bit sad.

    Hello All, l'm doing a solo trip in January for 7 nights, 1/23-1/30. I currently have a reservation for room only at the French Quarter, which I love due to its intimacy, quiet, and 1 bus stop. I usually go to WDW about twice a year and have an annual pass. I have never done the DVC point...

    Rental Car Code From Interweb: Is This Legitimate?

    We are needing a rental car for 4/23-4/28, and while we normally just do ME, this time we are staying off property and need a car.

    Windsor Hills: Experiences with Home Away or VRBO?

    We are planning an April trip and there were be 4 of us, 3 adults and 1 teenager. Thanks to all the knowledge of these boards, we are looking at Windsor Hills.

    How Do I Give My BOG ADR To Friends?

    I have an ADR for 1 at BOG in February that I would like to give to friends (party of 3) who will be in WDW at the same time as I am. Will the easiest scenario be for them to meet me at the front of the restaurant at the time of my ADR and for me to give them my table? Is Disney ok with this...

    Advantage/Disadvantage to Buying AP from Travel Agent?

    I am looking to buy an AP in September and am working with a travel agent, who booked our room. He said he is happy to do that for me, but that it would be a few more steps than just buying it directly through MDE, so it might be easier for me just to do that. I am buying my daughter's ticket...

    Undercover Tourist No Expiration Option Upgrade To AP

    Per Josh's retweet, Undercover Tourist has a limited supply of NE tickets available. I was going to buy tickets from UCT (4 DH + WPF and more for a 38.00 gate price discount) and upgrade to APs in September, and then this popped up. The last time I looked, it seemed the 6DPH +WPF and more...

    Mount Vernon from Washington DC?

    Our family is planning our first DC trip at the end of May. We are wanting to do Monticello for sure (renting a car for 1 day), but are also interested in Mount Vernon. Is it feasible to do both in 1 day? Or would we be better off returning the rental car and doing Mount Vernon another day...

    Cases of Water in Resort Gift Shops

    Can anyone confirm that Disney is now carrying water in the resort gift shops? I am specifically looking for information at the French Quarter. I was just getting ready to buy and ship for next week, but if I can get it at the resort, that would be a lot easier.
