NOTE: Updated Information
This idea has been cancelled by Disney before taking place. See here for details.




Yoo Hoo, Disney EchoEars!

This is from Deb Wills' wdwig.com website:

IMPORTANT CHANGES to the Priority Seating Policy!!

Beginning August 4, the booking window for most WDW dining locations will be 180 days out for guests with a paid deposit on a Walt Disney Travel Company package and 90 days out for all other guests. The only exceptions to this will be specialized dining locations such as dinner shows, Lunch With a Disney Artist, Bistro de Paris, and Victoria & Alberts. A valid WDW Travel Company package booking number (with paid deposit) will be required when calling for a Priority Seating for more than 90 days out.

So, if this applies to your upcoming WDW trip, on Monday start calling for your Priority Seatings!!!
:smart:

I really appreciate that Disney is trying to put that extra bit of value into the vacations of those who choose to stay on-property and book through WDW Travel.  The more perks, the more they will draw vacationEARs to their resorts, and frankly, I think this should have always been the case for WDW resort guests.  It's one of those simple things that costs them relatively little to implement, but gives their customers a little something more.  

Spot on, I say!

:angry:
I, on the other hand think this just stinks.    I am an Annual Passholder and therefore don't need to book any of the packages - which almost always include park tickets.   The way I see it is then those who decide to take a trip every other year or so beat out those of us who are faithful and visit more often........  Things that make you go hmmmm.

Don't get me wrong, to those that this benefits I'm happy for, but again, for us AP'ers, this stinks.

Similarly, the FTP they offered was a great deal!  But again, I have an AP and therefore, it was of no use to me.

It's also not good for thoose of us who book through AAA. I'm just gald I have mine all done for my trip in 22 days. It's not really fiar to us who don't book throught them but do stay on Proprty. :unhappy:  I'm not going to worry because I don't have control.

Don't know if it applies to all AAA agencies, but my local AAA specializes in Disney vacations and although they (AAA) book the packages for me, my ressie and deposit slip have a Walt Disney Travel Co. confirmation number at the top of the form. So, I should be able to schedule PS's earlier too. I've already booked a few, so it won't affect me this trip- only 79 days til we leave for the World!!! :bigsmile:
