So after a looooong wait on hold yesterday evening to Disney (very unlike disney btw) we booked our Disney trip!
We were put through to an English lady who had moved over to the States 8 years ago, she was really nice actually.
Anyway, we have opted to fly out on 20th September next year from Gatwick. We haven't confirmed an airline yet, it will either be Virgin or British airways.
We are stopping in Old Key West and after some really good advice we have requested that our rooms are block 62/63 or 64. We requested similar last year at Coronado Springs however we were placed the furthest away from where we asked so I am not holding my breath.
Talking of great CM's yesterday, after we went through the booking we got talking about how it was the first trip for one of the party. Later in the phone call she said 'oh I notice one of you are celebrating a birthday, is this the same person who is going for their first time?'. I responded with a 'yes' and she said 'great' I have made a note for the resort to hold something special for her in either the room or on the front desk on your arrival'.
When I checked the inovice there was an entry which said 'Celebration' and the cost blanked out.
So that's going to be a nice little surprise for her.
We have now got the task of working out how the dining plan works properly and what we can and cannot have etc. So I fully expect to be picking all your brains.
Just got to pay for it now! lol
