Yes i arranged it all from home - we dont arrive for another 29 days! The FP+ for BOG was done via a separate link i found here on the boards - i can try to repost once i can get to my computer but pretty sure it was on a Theme Park thread w/title "Any September guests get FP invite" or something close to that

Call Disney reservations. I called to add an extra day to our tickets. After this was complete, I mentioned I could not customize / order my Magic Bands online. They connected me directly to IT. The wonderful IT CM looked at our reservation, mentioned yes we are testers and was able to customize our Magic Bands for us. She said they should arrive at our home Monday or Tuesday. Good luck.

It is on the news that there was a collision between a Magical Express bus and a car near Epcot this afternoon. I hope and pray that all of our board friends are safe and sound.

Egad...that'd be a big no-no for me.

Are there rooms like this at BC?

We customized ours this morning! We noticed we could make fp+ selections earlier in the week so we started messing around and realized we had some ticket mix ups. I called and spoke to a really nice CM and I asked if they were rolling out another test. She said she wasn't 100% sure in the most joking tone ever and suggested we customize our bands "just in case" we get an official email inviting us to the test......well we just got our official email this afternoon. This is going to be an interesting trip

In Toronto airport! Waiting 2+ more hours to board our flight. All hands tired but super-excited!!! They know their friends will be there tomorrow and are so excited to surprise their friends tomorrow. They know they are going, and told our kids, so no chance of the double lobby surprise. I'm actually relieved - it's so exhausting keeping these secrets! LOL

I am impressed you kept it to yourself

I can't do that. I also am not sure my kids could handle that. Have a good flight!!!

I was a bad girl today.

A bad, BAD girl!!

Buzzy the Fly and I peer pressured someone into extending her December trip.

She's playing hooky from work.

I am sitting in the corner right now on time out but I'm sneaking on my tablet and searching for ADR possibilities.

I have NO remorse!
(is that wrong??)
