I totally agree with the Dr. Scopa. We should receive some preferential treatment for being frequent visitors. Why do they always ask how many times we've been there? It's not like we get a reward for being there so much.

Please keep your arms and legs inside the tram and remain seated until the tram comes to a full and complete stop.
Bounce back dining

Funny story about the bounce back offer.

We were at the Poly a few weeks ago and got the Free Dining offer under our door. I called the internal number on the offer to check the dates available and unfortunately it was a bit late for our next year's plans.

However, when we checked out later in the week I noticed a $3.84 charge on our bill for the phone call. This was quickly reversed at the front desk but it is something to watch for.

One of the odd things about the "bounceback" free dining is that it, rather than the DVC, seems to be the best-kept secret at WDW--at least from the CMs. I booked it during last Mousefest, and not only could I never get to a desk when it was manned, but I had to get transferred about 5 times on a phone call my last day there, to find someone who knew anything about it. I think it's interesting marketing, offering it again to basically all the same people who booked it last time...since this is the time period we're all going.

Will I book it again for next year? Possibly--I figure I can always cancel if my plans change, or if it turns out that the dining plan is totally worthless, now that they've reduced the value by about 25%
