    Help me prepare for Thursday

    So rumor has it that free dining will be announced Monday to Disney Visa holders and then Thursday to the general public. I'm a tad nervous about it because Mike and I have made our reservations and are sold on All Star Movies this trip. I heard last year it was one of the first to go behind POP.

    So I'm trying to make a backup list in order of preference in case I call Thursday at 7am when Central Reservation opens and they tell me I'm out of luck on ASMo.

    So where would you stay next?

    I'm thinking:
    1. ASMo
    2. ASSports
    3. POP
    4. ASMusic (I really don't care for it though)
    5. Caribbean Beach Resort

    If we weren't going to the UK next month I'd just go with CBR if ASMo was unavailable but I'm having to stay on a budget here and its a last resort sadly.

    Thanks for the reply. That is my next choice but Mike is wanting to try a different place (can't figure out what the deal is with him wanting to try out something new) but since I will be calling I guess I can selectively tell him things...

    I think I might now. Our UK trip just fell thru due to timing issues with my dad and before that we were going to have to stick with a Value to be on budget. Now that we aren't spending as much on the 2nd vacation we could upgrade. The Disney trip is 100% paid for with my reward program/survey site earnings from the past year and a half so it was never a matter of not doing both - just sticking within the 2 budgets.

    I might just try CBR again. I know Port Orleans is really popular but as someone who grew up right near NOLA it just doesn't have the appeal since I've Been There Done That so many times with the real thing. I think I want the "beach" atmosphere.
