She said two packages, not a room only and a package. She even bolded the word. Of course, you are right, there is no need to book two packages. The normal split stay would be very cost saving. I just hope the new magic band system doesn't negatively impact the early ticket pickup option. We will be the first ones to hear about it, though. I'm certain of that. Cheshire Figment is great at keeping us all in the loop.

Are Magic Bands being used now? Last I read they were going to begin testing them, but hadn't done so yet.

Not yet, but there have been rumors that they may be rolled out later this year.

I am hoping that they will expand the free dining offer into October. Fingers crossed!

Me too! It will be July or even August before we know, though. Hurry up, summer!

I noticed in the user agreement for My Disney Experience Moble app that it says if you select the option for FastPass+ you forfeit your right to paper tickets and may use only RFID tickets. Not sure if that means bracelets or whatever, but I thought that was an interesting part of the agreement. (I NEVER read those things...it caught my eye as I scrolled past.)

My family is wanting to book free dining deal for sept. It's my DD's birthday around the time we are wanting to go. she wants a friend to go as well. If I go ahead and book can I add her friend later? What happens if the deal has expired can she still be added? Help! I don't want to be out any money.

You can add the friend to the reservation any time up to 72 hours before check in. She can be cancelled anytime without penalty until 45 days before check in.
