Hi Kiley, I heard back from my Fallsview contact and he said that the link is working this morning if you want to try again. He noted that it has to be a credit card and not a Visa debit or Visa gift card just in case you were using one of those. Lisa
Thanks for letting me know. I have sent an email to my contact. I’ll let you know as soon as he gets back to me. Lisa
Hi Kiley, yes it should still work for a discount on day passes. Let me know if it doesn’t and I will follow up with them. Lisa
Hi Candace, We didn't follow a set itinerary. We have visited PEI many times so didn't do all of these things on one visit - that would be too much unless you're a SUPER fan of Anne! It would be relatively easy to do all of the places in the Cavendish Region on one trip as they are all fairly close together but the ones that are in other parts of the island are a bigger time commitment. Let me know if you have any more questions. Lisa

Hi Claudia, If you are only planning only to visit the store then you don't need reservations, however, if you plan to dine at the cafe then you should make a reservation online ahead of time. You can find information about making reservations at the Chicago store here https://www.americangirl.com/retail/chicago.html - they are currently taking reservations through March 24th. If you are planning to dine at the cafe then your granddaughter will want to have her doll prior to dining. You can purchase the doll when you arrive at the store and staff will remove it from the box for you so she can carry the doll with her. Just allow ample time to make the purchase prior to your dining reservations. It might be a good idea to have her look at the dolls online before visiting the store so that she has decided which one she wants - there are a lot of choices! Have a wonderful time!! Lisa
