Thanks! Maybe most of the construction will be completed by the time my trip rolls around in October.

Thanks for testing it out for us. Keep me posted.

DD just turned 4. Right now it's sized so that she can slip it on and off (she just did it this afternoon when I put mine on.) I'm not sure if she can pull it off herself if I make it tighter, but I think she can. I will have her test it for you!



I hope things get better!

I can't wait to hear more about your trip and the magicbands. I hope everyone sleeps off the grumpies.

Wishes she could take photos of the castle as well as the photos DALE (of Chip & Dale) takes.

[QUOTE=mickeyplanner;49209397]Thanks for testing it out for us. Keep me posted.

So I asked DD to test (she thought she was super cool being so helpful! lol)

She can easily take it off herself, either by opening the band or sliding it off her wrist (even when it was as tight as I was comfortable with).

I did have a thought. They sell little sleeves for the bands that might at least prevent them from pulling the band apart, but it would likely make it easier to slip off.

They do not have to wear it all the time though. For now at least, you can still use your KTTW card instead. Or I plan on carrying it wrapped on the strap of my bag when she's not entering the park or a FP+ ride.

6 more sleeps!

Posted this on another thread but got no response and thought maybe it was on the wrong one....maybe you all can help....

My first experience with CL will be this September.

We will be staying at CR and taking the DME to the resort. Our flight gets in at 5:40 am at MCO.

How long will it be to get to CR and should I expect someone to meet the bus or should I just proceed to the check in?

Also I have three reservations linked (we stay one night at CR and then go on DCL before returning to WDW and staying at another resort) but only want to check in online for our CR. Is this possible?

Also if we are taking the DCL transportation but need to check out do they do automatic check out and if the transportation comes after we are required to check out can we still use the lounge to wait?

I have tried to read for these answers through the thread but think I missed it, so I appreciate your responses.

Please tell your little princess THANK YOU for being part of the test. I am getting excited for you to be leaving in a few more days and can't wait to hear how it all works out.

Happy to help! If you have any burning questions or want pictures of something I will try to answer them! Tonight we are off to the Dessert Party and to try our MagicBands. So far I am in love!

I am thinking maybe I should book soon just in case, but I hear you about price....60 bucks per night is a lot for a week!

I am thinking maybe it is a conference or something
Sorry so late with the reply -
our dates are 9/14/14 - 9/20/14
I'm hoping as it gets closer or other promotions are released (as others have mentioned) that something will open up.

Thanks to all of you who have commented on this... I'll let you know what happens!

The Magic Kingdom bus depot is being expanded so it can handle larger buses. The expansion is located just across the street from the Contemporary. It started sometimes in April, not sure what the timeline is on its completion.

There are some updated photos over on wdwmagic: http://www.wdwmagic.com/transportati...ion-update.htm

It depends on how long you have to wait for the ME bus to fill up. But we are usually pulling up to our resort about an hour after we land. I believe CL check-in starts at 7AM. If you arrive at CR before 7, you may have to go to the regular check-in. Maybe someone else can chime in who has experience checking into CL that early.

Yes, you can do online check-in for your CR stay only.

You will automatically be checked out and a receipt will be emailed to you. You have access to the lounge, and all resort facilities, up until 11:59PM on the day you check out.
