    ...since I couldn't even get THROUGH to Disney World reservations.

    Yet here I sit, dialing, redialing, dialing, redialing to book two events at the F&W Festival. Sometimes I get a busy signal, sometimes I get a fast busy, and sometimes I just get a message saying, "We're sorry, all circuits are busy right now, please try your call again later."

    These Tequila Tasting Lunches must be serious business.

    25mins wait for us to get through over the weekend! Then, when we finally got through, we got one of "those" operators. You know the type, don't know the restaurants, don't know the discounts, no idea about tables in wonderland and finally the line "mysteriously" goes dead.

    FINALLY managed to get in the queue after 49 minutes of redialing. On hold for an additional 56 minutes before talking to a CM...luckily he was MAGICAL!

    CRAZY!

    I know the special events are very popular and sell out quickly, so it doesn't surprise me that you had to wait so long.

    Well done on getting the ones you wanted :D

    I don't think I knew in the past how popular they were (or, for that matter, that they even existed). But I was well prepared for this (thanks to you lot here!). You should have seen the way Jon looked at me when I rolled out of bed this morning at 6:45 and asked him where the credit card was. When I told him what I was doing he rolled his eyes went back to sleep. Only he didn't, because he could hear me in the office getting that blasted fast busy signal all morning, and that silly "all circuits are busy" message. He wandered in around 7:30 with coffee for me and said, "Doesn't look too good, does it?"

    I drove him to work still on hold, came back home still on hold, and then made breakfast - still on hold! At least I didn't let it effect my productivity!

    Wow! Those special events better be worth all that! :eek: Good that you were able to book what you wanted though, Becca.
