    Can a post 2016 resale buyer get TIW

    Why do you think this? They limit it to blue card DVC members, AP holders, and FL residents. Pretty limited in who can get it. Can you stop being so rude though? You don't like the answers, fine, but no need to take it out on us who tell you that unfortunately this perk isn't for you.

    Can a post 2016 resale buyer get TIW

    The writing is 100% clear on who gets perks and what they are. It seems like your research is only for you to justify your choice. If this perk was important to you, you should have considered it when buying resale. Not bothered or prickly here. Just over the sense of entitlement that many...

    Can a post 2016 resale buyer get TIW

    By calling, you are attempting to. You know the answer and yet you still want to try. You want full perks? Buy direct. By passing off your white card number as blue, you are misrepresenting your ownership status, You are an adult and do as you wish. I just get tired of people looking for...

    Can a post 2016 resale buyer get TIW

    Because most of the time you have to work very hard to make the dining plan work in your favor. Admittedly after running the numbers so many times, it has never worked in our favor and I think it's a moneymaker as a whole for Disney. So not really an odd statement since it's more often than...

    Can a post 2016 resale buyer get TIW

    They can ask for the membership number. That's what they are supposed to do. To be honest even in your situation I'm not sure I would bother with the Dining Plan. I'm not even sure I'd bother with making many reservations as a whole for food. Unless you have an annual pass, you only need to...

    Can a post 2016 resale buyer get TIW

    Yep, via phone is definitely an option to buy. As for the resale aspect, as I said above, they are not entitled to this perk. That said, sometimes you'll get the person on the other end who will sell it to you even if you are not supposed to get the perk.

    Dogs at DVC

    I'm sure you will find people who disagree, but I absolutely do not understand why anyone would bring a non-working animal to the parks period. I don't even understand it to the room really when they have to be boarded or left by themselves in a room they don't know at all.

    Dogs at DVC

    Sorry I offended you. I work with groups to empower marginalized people and I do try to stand up for them whenever I see disparity. The adversity that most disabled people face from others is rather large, and that doesn't include the issues that the disabilities may cause. My whole point is...

    Dogs at DVC

    I get your point, but I hope you understand that these are not pets and handlers will do what is good or necessary. These animals are not valuable to many, they are valuable to *all* handlers. These people are disabled and I can tell you love and respect those dogs more than any pet owner...

    Dogs at DVC

    I wouldn't ever call *needing* a service dog with you at all times no matter the heat selfish. Now there are some like my friends who are blind, who can go with out. They find taking them is harder and not easy on the dog for more than just heat reasons. Same with cruising, they leave them...

    Any foods NOT at WDW that you wish were offered somewhere on premises???

    I'm American, but not 'Murican ;) I actually avoid red meat as a whole if possible. Bacon is meh. Taters? eh. Where I live we have a lot of mom and pop owned restaurants of different types. Sure you can get meat & potatoes if you need, but we have so much better out there. Now I cannot...

    Any foods NOT at WDW that you wish were offered somewhere on premises???

    Sorry I have to disagree. The food has become increasingly bland as a whole. There are a few newer places that do okay, but really we're at the point where Disney food is ignored by us due to their removal of flavor. Marrakesh is the worst offender IMO. Sadly it seems people still are too...

    Dogs at DVC

    Oh I know all about service dogs vs the others. In fact the policy DOES carry over to the parks. They have quite a lot of info for those with service animals. It's tough work working the parks with one. I've done it many times with friends. Though if one can go without it's better for the animal...

    Dogs at DVC

    I never have at the resorts. I have only seen them in the parks. Service dogs are not a problem to me, but these therapy and emotional support dogs in my opinion are in the Parks. They are nowhere near well enough trained and they seem to be increasing in popularity. I really wish Disney would...

    Best place to get a steak.

    Shula's We found that the steak at Grand Floridian Cafe was better than Le Cellier so our vote also is "not Le Cellier" ;)
