Ok thank you. I was just really surprised that that particular day wouldn’t be loaded yet, but that I was able to make dining reservations for the next night at MK during MVMCP. Also, the lunch reservations are open for that Monday.

That is rather odd but it appears to be an extra hour night at MK. You might just use the touring plans restaurant reservation finder so if it is that it hasn’t loaded you should get a notification from them as soon as it starts seeing availability. Someone else had a similar thing for Thanksgiving. I think that was Rose and Crown.

The other thing to always check is for a different size party. It might just be the size of your group.

Does anyone have a dinner reservation scheduled at the MK for that evening?
ACTUALLY - I had Dec 4th in my head for some reason but reread and see you said the 2nd. MK closes at 4:30 that day. Usually means an employee appreciation or something like that.
You’ll need to change your plans. Sorry about that!

OMG I didn't even think the hours would be posted yet, so I didn't even look. Thanks so much for pointing that out! Well, I guess I'll have to change my plans around.

December 2nd is a cast member appreciation party. The park is closing at 4:30pm that day.

We are able to link a friend in me a but not their minor child who we'd like to take on a ride or two. I've seen notes that this is not possible but I've also known multiple people to manage a minor account before. How can we request the child be added to our friends and family online?

Default Banking points

Hi...new owner here! We just bought our points and received the same amount of points for 2018. We dont plan to do anything else this year so I banked the 175 2018 points. So we now have those 175 banked and our 2019 points...
Question...will I be able to use the 2018 banked points in 2020? And if not, can I try to sell/rent them?

No. They have to be used in 2019. You can certainly rent them. One of the services like David's might be best if you're new to the system

You could bank the 2018 points into 2019, then use them in 2019 and bank your 2019 points into 2020 etc... At some point you'll want the extra points.
