Should be available up to 60 days out, from within the My Disney Experience pages (not the old WDW site as far as I know).

well I need to change flight information because apparently United airlines merged or something so now my flights have changed, and because I requested ground floor but I don't want that anymore and my flight home is at 4:30pm but check out is at 11am, so does that mean we have to leave at 11?

1. You can apply for a later checkout say 12 noon or 1pm then be up front at ME waiting area shortly after because they usually pick up 3hrs before a flight.

2. United merged with Continental yeah, so I would say put a call into ME and see if that changes anything with them, their number is: 1-866-599-0951

3. If you feel you need to contact the resort directly please PM me for that one.

If your flight has changed to one that doesn't work for you, don't accept it online. Check out the other flights they have that day, see if one works for you, and call United. If there are seats they will generally help, when they change the flight times. But you cannot accept it online before doing this.

United and Continental did merge, but it was about a year ago, so I'm not sure that that is what caused the flight changes.

Downtown disney charging

You can charge anything you want just like the KTTW cards originally could be set up to do. They are waterproof so they can be taken to the water-parks or splashed at any other park and just like the original KTTW cards if your band is lost or stolen they require a pin for purchases over a certain amount plus you can call and within minutes have a band deactivated and get a new one at Guest Relations or back at the Hotel. Also your Fast Passes are now stored on there so and your My experience keeps track of your Fast passes also so if you have a mobile phone you will be able to check back and see when you need to be back.

Lastly no POR doesn't have them yet. They will supposedly by the end of spring. That is a big if!

As for alternate ways to sport these RFID gadgets; there are necklaces maybe in the works, and still you may get the currently used KTTW with the RFID chip in them.
Can you use the KTTW cards/bracelets at downtown disney also or do you have to use your "real" credit card there?

OK, start again...

It rather depends on what time you arrive. Before about 7:30am it is usually fairly quiet, then building up to a peak around 8:30am-10am, then getting quieter again. The exact dates will make a difference too, the last week in May being probably a bit busier than the middle.

yes it is what caused the flight changes because we booked our flights via our bank's visa card points system and apparently they weren't aware!!! We 're ok about the changes, but I figured I needed to advise ME since I had to give flight numbers and those have changed.

Point taken
We will be there May 18-29th. With 2 teenage boys I would guess we will be at breakfast around 8:00.
We have stayed at value resorts in early June and breakfast was crazy! but our past few trips were at POFQ in early June and there was maybe 2 people in line in front of you.
Just trying to figure out what to expect on our first trip to POR

The first week will most likely be fairly quiet, but the Memorial Day weekend will be a lot busier. I think at 8am you shouldn't find it too crowded though - maybe not 2 people, but not manic either. Closer to your experience at POFQ than the Values, anyway.

You don't have to leave the resort, no. DME will pick you up about 1:30, so you could hang around the resort until then. Or you could check out first thing in the morning and maybe get a few hours at a park or DTD. I would make sure you're back at POR no later then 1:00 though.
