So we (me, my wife, and two kids age 12 and 9) are checking in Sunday, 25 Nov at AKL and staying through Saturday, 1 Dec. I’m new to the board and have several questions that I hope you all will indulge…
We have an ADR at 1:00 on Sunday that will be before we have had a chance to check in. Can I use my dining plan for the reservation?
We are booked in a Standard room at AKL. We have requested bunk beds for the kids. We listed two birthdays and a 15-year wedding anniversary all happening within a couple of weeks either side of our trip. Any advice towards hopefully getting bunk beds and/or a room upgrade?
Groceries. We have some things we need from Publix. Anyone have experience using the Instacart app and having groceries delivered to the Resort? If we are not at the Resort when they deliver will the front desk hold the items for us (including refrigerated items)?
We are doing Mickey’s Very Magic Christmas Party on our first night. Would really like to see Santa, the 7 Dwarfs, and Mary Poppins/Bert. Recommended best times for each of those? We plan to stay in the park until close (midnight).
We have looked for an O’hana dinner ADR for months to no avail. Please someone tell me there is hope that something pops up while we are at Disney?
We are doing Early Morning Magic at HS on Wednesday. Our reservation says 7:00, but we cannot actually get to the rides until 7:30 right? Any dos/don’ts for EMM?
Crowd calendar looks good, but my wife is extremely worried that it is not accurate and the parks will be packed. How accurate have the crowd calendars been of late?
Last question, we would possibly like to extend our stay by one additional night to Sunday, 2 December but there are no rooms available at AKL. Any advice on best deals or resorts for a one-night stay?
