After experiencing issues with my Disney account this morning, I was able to book two of my three reservations (Cinderella & Crystal Palace) over the phone. That was quick. Getting to an internet support rep to fix my account took over a half hour, though she was able to fix my account in a few seconds. So that's good so far.
We were hoping to book Minnie's Seasonal Dine at Hollywood & Vine with the Fantasmic package for next March, after scouring the site this morning, it doesn't appear that Disney has opened up any Fantasmic packages yet for those dates. We thought this could be a "two-fer" for us...gets the kids a character meal with Mickey and company, and then better seats with less wait for Fantasmic.
I suspect I'm just going to have to wait, but the question is: how long? Should I book a regular Hollywood & Vine reservation as a placeholder for the evening, and hope to convert it to Fantasmic down the line? Or should I do nothing and just wait it out? Since it appears that Disney hasn't even committed to Minnie's Seasonal Dine after Christmas, I suspect that there's a chance that it might not happen at all.
