He even took care of cancelling my dining reservations and would have booked new ones for me but I didn't have all my information together.

    It really depends who you end up getting on the phone.

    You sure that it wasn't the other way around though

    Outdoor Foods Radio? Whats that? Well, it had the signature iPod earbud look. But I have no clue about the Outdoor Foods Radio...

    Actually, I'm not positive they have those at Epcot, but at MK, the CMs working at the popcorn/ice cream/drink stands had to bring a walkie talkie, so that we could contact the stockers (for more ice cream/drinks/seed...etc), managers (if we had a guest that wanted to talk with them, got sick...etc) or general tellers (if we needed more one dollar bills...etc) but I guess they thought that to add to the show, they should gave us a headphone to stick in one ear (since we always had to have the radio turned up, in case the stocker/manager/teller had to contact our specific cart), so that the guest wouldn't have to hear it as well. But, since a lot of CM's, mostly from the CP, unfortunately stole the headphones, the MK managers scrapped the idea, at least for a while. However, if that CM was listening to an iPod, I'm sure he was begging for a manager to scold him, at the very least.

    Wow, that sounds cool. I never knew they had that. And yea, if it was an iPod, he was asking for it. But I just assumed that because on the white headphone, I never knew there was a radio system before. Cool!

    She did say that they are almost definitely going to start charging next year for the Magical Express check-in, but because I booked with her now, I get it for free...

    If you aren't getting the meal-plan, you can book room-only reservations now... if you want the meal-plan, you have to wait for the new pricing to come out... hope this helps..

    I'm not sure how true that is about charging for the Magical Express. Didn't Disney this year sign a 5 year or so contract and said it will stay free? Even if they did charge a small fee, it would be worth it.

    Yeah I've never actually had to call the CRO, but I've been told if you get someone bad, just politely say good-bye and then call back. With all the people working there, chances are you'll get a different person thats hopefully nicer.

I would have been fine if she just said that you'd have to buy 2 tickets and have both people be on the dining plan. but she didn't have to yell at me.
    On another note, plan rates for 2007 are not out yet.
    Last year while on the disney cruise i ran into a woman who works for disney making reservations. All she was doing was complaining about the dinner schedule very loudly so everyone would hear her. She was even announcing that she worked for disney. In my opinion that is not the best way to get people to return. My husband and i thought it was very unprofessional and were very surprised because we've NEVER EVER met anyone that worked for disney who acted in such a way wether they were on duty or not. Thankfully we've never had a problem since.
