    Unfortunately, with having to pay for some dental work out of pocket and a septic tank problem at my property in Aguanga that I don’t know how much it is going to cost yet, I have had to once again postpone my Walt Disney World vacation.

    Yes, I could just run the credit cards up some more, but I don’t like to do that.

    Look I am fortunate enough to have been able to go once a tear for the past few years and will be able to go in a few months again.

    Looking forward to setting up camp at Fort Wilderness Camp Grounds on March 5, 2019

    I had to postpone my trip to the World last month I rescheduled it to September 3, 2019 but I might have to postpone it into next year, when my finances will be better.

    On a better note on August 24, 2019 I will be officiating my nephew and his brides wedding, so I will be driving to Northern Utah for a few days.

    Is your on property first? I was able to make them at the 60 day mark. We had added a night to the beginning and stayed in a Disney Springs hotel the first night. Time share for the rest of the week. It was weird. I made the first day no problem. The second day didn't pop up so I called and was told only the on property days I could make at 60 days. I was like cool, no problem. Well I was in the app for something else and it was letting me make FP for the other populated days on like day 4 so I made the rest at 60 days too. YMMV

    I think I noticed a similar thing during my last trip, but could have been some sort of intermittent bug in the system.

    I had a few Disney Springs Hotel days up front, then switched to somewhere else. At one point in the app, it seemed like it was going to let me do the later days, but then it disappeared on a future visit to the app.

    Lesson learned: If you see such a thing pop up in the app, jump on the opportunity while it's there! (I doubt very much any FP are ever cancelled because the app was buggy in your favor when you did it )

    Sorry to hear you have to possibly postpone again, but congrats to your nephew!

    Best of luck in either figuring out a way to keep your September 3rd plan or being able to hold to your alternate plan for rescheduling to next year.

    No unfortunately our offsite is first. I was able to make fast passes for our 3 park days but have to wait til 30 day mark to make them for our MNSSHP day. That's awesome you were able to do that tho. It's not really an issue for this trip since it's short and we are blessed to be going at all. We missed out on SDD and FOP but eemh hopefully will help with those rides. Can not believe I am going to be at a park at 6 AM!!!

    40, 97, 158, 312 days
    Have to post that because it'll never happen again. Yea for AP's

    SueJacken - Yay! We're doing 11 nights in March. Being that it's 3000 miles away, we probably won't get to do this again - especially as a whole family - DD is 15 going on 25 :-( - we want to have as much time as my job (and finances) will allow!! Looking forward to reading your planning and trip reports! ;-)

    Trips to DL: 2x 1978-1988, 90, 95, 98, 99, 00, 05 (2x), 10, 12, 15, 16, 17(2x), 18, 19(2x). Planned WDW March 2020.
    Me: 44, DH: 47, DD: 15, DS: 11
