Sorry to say we have changed our Feb. reservation to the Beach Club. Cast rates became available and I was able to get 60% off and discounted dinning at the BC, so my practical side won out and we are now saving quite a bit of money by switching. We will be back to the WL again.

Congrats on the discount!

Looks like we will have a free morning to take the lodge tour. Is it worthwhile?

Oh yes is this a good idea. I have a 7-year-old who is very curious of things but how long is the tour?

I have read that they should pop up around 30 days out. During the early testing some were getting them at 60 days but I believe they have stopped them from showing up so early. I also read they shortened it to 30 days because people were booking packages at MB testing resorts and then cancelling after receiving their MBs but before the 45 day mark.

We did the tour a few years ago, took about an hour I think. It was worth it! It's a neat behind-the-theme sort of tour with some cool information about the WL and the WLV, and you get to see some little nooks and crannies many repeat guests don't even know about.

Just noticed in MDE, when I click My Itinerary, it defaults to today's date, which of course has not plans. But the generic ad in the left window, says pick your FP+ beginning Nov. 1. Could be for everyone, could be because that is my check in day. What does your My Itinerary page say? For any date?

Mine says, Make FastPass+ selections beginning November 30, 2013, which is our check in date.

I guess it defaults to your check in date.

When I click my itinerary it takes me to a calendar and I go to my dates and it has all of my reservations....does not say anything about fp. My check in isn't until 12/6....

I can't find anything about fastpass under my itinerary either. We check in January. Maybe it's just showing for November check ins?

If you go to one of your trip dates in your itinerary you will see a section below all your reservations that says: Add Things to do for Thursday (or Wednesday, or whatever day you are looking at). There are four sections:
1. FastPass+ Service
2. Reserve Dining
3. Be Inspired
4. Meet and Greet

In my FastPass+ Service box it says"
Make your selections from home or the mobile app.
and the hyperlink says: Modify FastPass+

I also have a trip in March. When I go to one of the days of my March trip, the FastPass+ box says:
Make FastPass+ selections beginning November 30, 2013
and the hyperlink says: Learn More - when I click on that link it takes my back to my Nov 30th check in date.

There are probably screen caps posted somewhere showing these screens.

Thank you for walking me through that But I do not have the same 4 boxes as you do mine are:
1) Explore Attractions
2) Reserve Dining
3) Be Inspired
4) Meet and Greet

Do you think maybe because December is just not rolled out yet???
