You can't load a magic band up with money, I guess you could if you can add the money to your room account and work it that way.

I carry cash, and while the bands are still in testing everyone also gets a KTTW card.

Have another payment method as a back up
It's always a good idea to carry a little bit of cash with you no matter what payment form you want to normally use. There have been times when various machines have been down and a booth would only take cash. Not often, and generally not for too long, but it is nice to have a bit of cash with you just in case

Last year you could grab Trois Pistoles, Blanche du Chambly and Ephemere outside in Canada at the time I went.
I read somewhere earlier this year that Fin du Monde was making it's first ever appearance on draft in the US this year so if Unibroue does make an appearance I'll bet Trois Pistoles gets bumped since Fin is their flagship (WDW probably doesn't want to have more than one 9% alcohol beer on tap I would guess and Chambly and Ephemere being only 5% and cheaper by the keg would stay).

We have run into that too so I agree, having some cash on hand is a good idea.

Even if the booths can process room charges, you can still run into problems. We had an issue last year when we checked in. The systems were down and they could not add room charging privileges for us. They tried to fix it several times but it took two or three days until they got it sorted out. We bought a couple of those little wrist-strap gift cards and used those.

Will anyone be there this weekend that wouldn't mind mailing me a F & W map? I know it's available as a PDF but alas, I can't get my printer to work.

I would really appreciate it if someone wouldn't mind!

Is is just me, or does the food & drinks (for the most part) seem decently priced? Did they make the servings smaller? My mom's gonna be *TICKED OFF* if they shrank her shrimp taco. Although, I vaguely remember it being around $5.50 last year.

I guess my main concerns are Dessert, Florida, & Hawai'i.

Any thoughts? (I said that like this wasn't a forum. LOL)

No way to know until they start serving. Maybe there will be some reports from the cast preview today.

For anyone interested Touring Plans has a menu app for Android and I assume Apple that lists all the F&W stuff along with all other menus. It is pretty fast. I subscribe to TP and have the Lines app installed too. Just search for Disney World Menus. It's pretty good.

Can someone tell me how long the Eat to the Beat concerts last? Also, are they as strict as they are during the Candlelight Processional about letting people leave during the concert?

Eat to the Beat concerts are 30-45 minutes long and you can get up and leave whenever you want (maybe sit on the end if you think you're going to have to leave)
