I hope you're able to get it figured out.
Hopefully yours comes quickly!! My Disney Store orders generally arrive within 2 days of shipping because of where I live in relation to the distribution center. I hope you have the same luck!

Although I'm a bit nervous - the number our travel agent gave us isn't a Disney confirmation number, and when I phone WDW to try to get an actual confirmation number (3 separate times) they can't pull up our reservation using our names, address, arrival date or anything
I booked with a TA this year for the first time. She sent me an email with that Disney sent her with our confirmation on it and it also listed all of our names. I was just able to get it linked with the My Disney Experience app on my phone. I would call/emial your TA and have them forward the email that they received from Disney. It day list our TA as being booked through though.

I just started filling out the online check-in form and was wondering about our expected arrival time. Our flight is scheduled to arrive at 10:25am, so I'm thinking around noon? We'll be using Magical Express. Thanks!

That sounds about right. I think they just want a general idea of when you are going to be there. We usually check in in the morning, and the past 3 times, our room was ready, and I think it might have been because they knew when we planned to arrive.

Have a good trip! We will be there in a few days!

So excited. Hubby gave the go ahead and we just booked a room for March 12-16! We will be celebrating our daughters 5th birthday and the 4th anniversary of becoming a family or Gotcha Day! Now searching threads trying to figure out meals, characteres and such. Any other ideas on how to make things a bit more special?

If you have the money, check out the Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party. It's a dessert buffet and guaranteed seats for the fireworks show. The desserts are great and plentiful!

I miss summers up there! It's perfect! It will come soon! But when it gets here for you don't forget to hit the slowdown button so it can almost last forever.

Is POR having anything special in the time leading up to Mardi Gras? I've seen a couple of things mentioned about things @ Disneyland but nothing for WDW?

Mardi Gras itself is always fun at Port Orleans, see http://www.portorleans.org/mardigras.php. Details don't tend to be announced far in advance though.
