My brothers band does not work on our room apparently. We don't know why. Everything went nice today at HS.

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

Crowds for me are never a problem. I will knock you down if you're pointlessly stopping in front of me and walking too slow. But in a relatable since, not bad. I would say on a scale of one to Christmas it's about a 6. The Fastpasses are a huge help though!

NFL Network?

Does anyone know if they have NFL Network? Just found out the Patriots are playing the Jets on the Thursday night game week 2. One of the coolest nights I've had in the past was watching the same match up on a Monday night a few years back up in the Top of the World lounge. Would love to be able to do that again this trip :-)

After I read through every single page of WDWKOOK's great thread for the BW, we switched our reservation to BLT. I am so pleased to see there is another Kooky thread for our new resort and I will be reading it thoroughly!

Please add us to the stay section for only two nights: January 30-February 1, pre-cruise. We are staying in a Water View Studio. Yippee!!!

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.
Thank you for the response...I figured I might as well do the online chk in since I think we get in before 7am to the resort. We decided not to be in a rush so long as we can get cont breakfast in the lounge and head to MK for our day.

Alright everyone, I will be at CR with my MB on Tuesday, so please send me any questions you may have or picture requests, or whatever!

I will likely come on and give you live updates.
Can't wait to hear about your trip live....

It may not be part of the advertised package, but I had it in my BLT villa in May.

I couldn't agree more. My initial perception of FP+ is that there are a few people who will benefit the most from FP+.

-People who generally are not FP dependent now will not miss the loss of paper FP as much. I know when we go, we MAY use 1 FP a day and usually get more FP that we don't actually use then the ones we do use. We're rope droppers so we hit the headliners early. We also use single rider lines when available so there is rarely a NEED for FP. If something has a long standby wait time because we didn't get there early enough, we'll try it on another day or just skip it that trip.

-Rope droppers...the reason I say this is like I mentioned above. Arriving early means you don't really have any need for the big rides early on. Take Hollywood Studios for example....if I don't have to worry about TSM at all because of FP+), I can use one FP+ on an afternoon ride of TSM, one on a second ride of Rock N Roller Coaster and one on Fatasmic! When the park opens, we can head straight to the Toy Story meet & greet and then head directly over to Sunset Blvd. If you arrive early enough to knock out alot of the headliners, you can use your FP+ for a great reserved spot for fireworks and such and use the time you would have had to stand there and wait on other attractions.

I have no clue why I typed NOT part of the package....my mind was thinking one thing and my fingers went rogue on me...

Let me correct, it IS part of the in room TV package. It's one of the higher channels though (like in the 50s or 60s), not located by the ESPN family of channels.

Sorry for the confusion.

There's a subset to the Rope Droppers group: it's those with Park Hoppers. If you do RD at one park in the morning you can use your FP+ for the evening rides at another park. This also benefits people who on go to a park on arrival night.

Here now and waiting for our room to be ready. Do not know if we have a fridge yet but I do have a medical request in for one. We declined the Magic Bands but boy do they push for you to use them. I will stop by again later to update.

Update: We received a text to see front desk for our room number. Our room was exactly over Chef Mickey when we checked in we Repeatedly said we wanted a room on the opposite end of Chef Mickey. We were told it was. We were quite annoyed. We were reassigned to a room on the fifth floor. It was the only room available. Hopefully it will not be loud considering it is right above the stores and even with the monorail. If it is, we will be switching in the morning.

The room did not have a fridge but housekeeping did send one up. We did request one for our insulin. The gentleman who brought the fridge said they just received 200 new fridges today and they still needed to be installed in the rooms.

Will check in again later. Off to Magic Kingdom.
