Well there are now PE reward flights for our outbound. I tried to give Flying Club a ring but apparently an hour wait and theyíre encouraging use of text and WhatsApp. Iíve sent a WhatsApp to see if we can book outbound and inbound separate and if thereís any downside to doing so. Iím hoping they offer to hold the flights until inbound is released so we donít have to pay additional fees as you often do when booking both legs separately.

That's good news! Hopefully they'll get back to you soon.

On the plus side, a lot of the people looking to book the Rewards seats for the outgoing will likely be waiting for the same ingoing flight as you so won't be snapping them up straight away.

Hopefully. If we end up missing out because they WhatsApp reply takes so long Iíd be inclined to complain. They really lay it on thick about how busy the phone lines are and only to call if itís urgent. I kind of feel this is but since itís for a flight 10 months away maybe the wouldnít agree!

Well VA replied to my WhatsApp at around 10.45pm last night while I was sleeping to say that they couldnít book the outbound until the inbound was released . I went ahead and contacted them again this morning as I can WhatsApp while at work and the helpful Chloe said the opposite and that she could hold the seats for me. Sheís gone ahead and held two PE seats for me and Iíve to get in touch in 9 days to see about the inbound. Fingers crossed there are return reward seats!

That is fantastic news! Bet you're glad you challenged them. Good to hear WhatsApp was efficient too.

Fingers crossed the inbound Reward seats show straight away and you can get booked up soon.

Hi Lisa - love this PTR - so good to see one again We have also made some plans for 2020 and am so hoping we can all get back to the magic asap! Also love your puppy pics. How is she settling in? Our second cockapoo joined the family at the beginning of October so I'm in the midst of toilet training and sleepless nights - she's worth it though! Really hope you get the flights confirmed soon - sounds like a wonderful trip

Yes it turned out to be better than I thought it would!

Thanks! I just really want to be planning, even if it all turns out to have to be moved again .

Sheís settling in fine - currently cuddled in to me on the couch! Theyíre great at this age but also a nightmare! Congratulations on your puppy!

Iím currently counting down to Wednesday when our return flight should be released. Whether there are reward seats remains to be seen I suppose but Iíll WhatsApp VA Wednesday morning anyway!

Weíve also been chatting about the hotel. I looked into DVC rental for BWV and availability for our two weeks is affected by there being none the first weekend. It did occur to me that we could maybe do a split stay since we donít have dining plan credit to worry about. A week at CSR and a week at the Dolphin or potentially BWV on rented points would still reduce costs from 2 weeks at the Dolphin and give us our $500 in gift cards from Disney.

Currently waiting on a reply from VA WhatsApp about our return flights. According to Seatspy thereís availability so hopefully theyíll reply soon.

I also see the DVC resorts are on the Disney site now - £8000 for a 2 bed villa at OKW .

Been thinking of you today and hoping you were all sorted, hopefully won't be too long before you here back.

I totally forgot about the DVC resorts appearing for September! We're £7,795 for 2 rooms in the Tower at CSR and tickets for 3. I think my mum would prepared to pay the extra for a 2-bed at OKW. She is OBSESSED with the washing machine in the room. But to me, I see the price difference as the cost of QSDP!

Missed your last post. Like your idea of renting DVC points for a split stay so you still get to stay in the Crescent Lake area. Our November trip is still currently booked for the Dolphin. My heart isn't really in it, particularly since the news about the buses. But I also don't think my heart is in CSR (quite a bit cheaper) considering we'll have already been there in September. Plus if I don't do a 'non' Disney trip without DDP, how will I ever know if I like it or not!? I think if I knew we could park hop I'd feel more comfortable with the Dolphin.
