CP trip planning questions.

Wednesday, May 14, 2003 10:52 AM
Tommarrow I start my new job and from what I've heard they have an annual plant closing for the week of July 4 which is from June 30-July 4 of actually the stretch from June 28-July 6. We (My best friend & I) may be looking at leaving on the 28 and maybe make it a 5-6 day trip counting the driving time and we hope to have at least 2 days in the park. We want to go on weekedays because of the long lines and we have Valleyfair season passes to get us in free. A couple quick questions.

Are there still vacancies for that time period for the Breakers Express?

Will Breakers Express guests have ERT perks that includes TTD?

Are there any special package deals?

I will be talking to my friend tonight and hope to make my reservations by tommarrow. I hope it's not too late to get a room.

Once again, duty calls....and it's close to lunch hour anyway, so off I go to the Legion of Self-Proclaimed SuperHeros to see FutureMan. Okay--FutureMan and the $5.95 Lunch Buffet. Especially the buffalo wings.

Anyway, I asked him PFF's questions and he practically gagged on his enormous bowl of oatmeal. Ever seen Quaker Instant drip from a nostril? Not pretty! "Is he crazy?!?" sputtered the Mystical All-Seeing One. "Everybody and their uncle's grandmomma has that week off. I don't even need to see the future to tell you that," he continued, wiping his mouth and that freaky giant eyeball sewn to the front of his jumpsuit. "Statistically speaking, it's the beginning of the peak season. Don't count on a lot of discounts--they don't even need you that time of year. Well, that is unless....unless.....well I can't tell you that."

"Does it have anything to do with your lunch--and the two dozen grocery bags of oatmeal piled behind your chair?"

"NO! I mean yes, but don't tell anyone." FutureMan looked furtively to the right and left, then lowered his voice to fervent whisper. "He who holds the oats will....rule.....the....world. You'll see it when it happens."

You know, FM's getting a little flaky 'round the edges. I'm really getting tired of doing favors for you guys.

Please do, Playa. He posted at 2:52. He could have had his answers before you posted at 3:07 had he simply called the hotel. I wonder if someone recently chased him down the street with a baseball bat...?

mOOSH

PFF: I've heard that if you hide in the park after hours and sleep under Mean Streak, you'll have a dream where you're riding a 300-ft. tall Intamin plug-n-play woodie...far better than any ERT the park's resorts could offer you, I'm sure.

Look HERE, idiot!

Yes, we do. So lock up your kids everyone, as the whole country will be run rampant by GM workers on our mandatory 2-week shutdown.

Run for your lives! Buy a generator and lots of bottled water and duct tape!! We're taking over!!! Whu-ha-ha-ha-ha!!! (best mad genius laugh...);)

Later,

Gee bASS, talk about *your* mean streak. ;)

I at least gave the d00d a link while I teased (see the halo and hear the harp).

You're right, Dawn, that WAS mean. I went back and edited my post to give it a kinder, gentler feel...because I'm that kind of guy!

I've tried calling their number and they are understaffed. I use my cell for my long distance and I don't need to be on hold losing 30 minutes of my cell time. CP is too cheap to hire enough help for fast service and I had problems with their website earlier,

You won't get thru till Friday. FutureMan said so. And start stockpiling oatmeal while you're at it.

Man, this place is getting wild! If the guy on the Quaker oatmeal box could see some of you now, he'd whoop y'all in an instant (get it, INSTANT).

Anyway, the Breakers Express ERT DOES include TTD (TTD and Milly, a half-hour before the park opens). I'm pretty sure that there will be vacancies, but you can always wait to check the site if you don't want to call the hotel directly on that. And, yes, they do offer packages for stays of at least two days, but since you already have your VF pass you won't need the packages.
