    Yea!!!! So excited! This year, though, I will try to book my culinary demonstrations online. Last year I did it over the phone, and I was on hold for an hour and a half!

  2. Beth says

    Thanks so much for the information. Spent the evening going over our must do’s and booked them this morning on the phone. Can’t wait to go now.

  3. Mark D. says

    Wanted to book Carla from Top Chef, but that is probably the most difficult day to switch my schedule around, so probably won’t happen.

    FYI, I don’t see Robert Irvine on this years list. On the 24th looks like maybe a chef from his restaurant. Just didn’t want to get peoples hopes up.

  4. Christina says

    I booked this morning and am so excited! I tried to use a gift card to pay for it and the CM said that she could only take credit cards. Does anyone know why?

  5. Carol says

    Does Disney realize they have screwed up royally again?

    Someone I know called this morning and got a CM to book the Desert Event. You could book PFTS and other events online all morning??? Public access to the seminars was also on line all morning.

    Wonder how folks are going to feel when things that weren’t suppose to open until Tuesday are full do to this mess?

  6. Tracy says

    I’m an ap holder so I was on the phone first thing this morning and after almost 30 minutes on hold I was told what we wanted to book had to wait until the 13th. The cm said the information released wasn’t as specific as it should have been. I’m soooooo hoping this wasn’t one of those disney “pardon our pixie dust moments” where some people got one set of info and others another (sigh). Crossing my mickey ears until tuesday.

  7. Mike says

    No luck with me trying to book a Mexican Tequila Luncheon just a few minutes ago. They apparently fixed the glich. My CM was not even able to see this event on her computer. She ultimately called a supervisor and was told these events were not available for booking until 13 Aug at 0700 EST. I’m hoping not too many reservations were given away for this event today, so I’ll have my fair shot at getting one first thing Tuesday morning (I’ll be on a work related trip on the west coast on that day:( So it’s an early wake for me on Tuesday.. Happy Happy Joy Joy!!!

  8. Norma says

    I asked about booking the “sweet Sunday” Carla Hall event at 8:30 this morning when I was booking my low cost seminars. The CM’s computer would not let her add that one. So hopefully not too many people were able to book through the glitch. The CM was not very informed about the process this morning. She kept saying I should work there since I knew more about it than her.
