We will be in the AB section since we need the trundle. I have 3 boys that will most likely be coordinated in custom shirts, if you see us say hi!
This is our 6th trip but our first time staying at POR.

Seems like I'm super late to the party, but figured I'd jump in and introduce myself anyways.

I'm Emily, and I'll be staying at AoA 1/13 to 1/19. I'm traveling with my sister for our first sister-trip down! We're both complete Disnerds so we're very excited!

Only 7 days until we leave. I love Disney and have been scores of times since childhood. I'm travelling with my partner who has a vague memory from when he was 8 or 9. He still thinks its a six-flags kind of trip...wont he be surprised!

Staying at CSR for the first time. I think I might start packing today

Any word on Fast Pass+ beign used in January? Or having APs converted over? I tried pulling up all my reservations online today for our January trip and wasn't able to because nothing is linked from the old system to the new system. There was a lot of talk about Fast Pass+ and doing away with paper tickets.

One last question, how is everyone tackling MK w ith Fast Passes and New Fantasyland in the mix?

All I'm going to do is walk through New Fantasyland, and maybe get something at Gaston's if the lines aren't too awful. And middle daughter wants to meet Gaston -- he sounds like a hoot! Enchanted Tales with Belle is what most interests us, but nobody in my family cares enough to bother with the lines. We'll wait until the crowds die down, which hopefully they will, since a lot of people say it's a "one and done" sort of thing.

Scheduling tips I've heard -- Dumbo is no longer a priority, so kick that down the schedule considerable. If you want to do Enchanted Tales with Belle, hit that first thing! Then see Ariel if desired, then do the Little Mermaid ride (or Fastpass it). Get to Be Our Guest at 10:25 for lunch if they're still opening at 10:30, or expect a long wait; half hour to 45 minutes seemed to be average before the big Christmas rush, but we can hope it'll drop off considerable in January.

For Dumbo, it is SOOOOOOOOO much more magical at night now, with all the lights and water. Definitely try to ride it at night at least once (and even in July it was a walk-on at night!!)

We are planning to do Belle and Ariel first, too. Then ride the Little Mermaid if the line is small, otherwise, we'll start the circuit with the other regular MK rides.

BOG lunch is the one that puts a kink in our plans....a 10;30am lunch is still prime riding time...

I hear ya!! 11 days for us. Today I start putting our clothes in ziplocs ... but will adjust as I get more firm weather reports.

Thankfully, we are driving so I can just add extras.

We're also heading to Enchanted Tales at rope drop to avoid the long wait times later in the day. Then Ariel and Under the Sea. Really struggled whether to go for an early lunch to BOG but decided not to and get more rides in for the kids. Plus, we'll have eaten at Chef Mickey's for breakfast that day prior to rope drop so don't think we'll be hungry at 10:30.

Our second MK day rope drop, we'll head over to Merida.
