I know of 3 families that switched from Poly to WL last week for trips next spring. One mom told me she could even get CR for cheaper but didn't love the theme. The only other place I would consider is one of those new villas at VGF. As much as GF doesn't appeal to me, those villas look amazing.

Thank you, you made my day. But, but...I thought it was tied with the CR/BLT thread


Attention MB experts!

Does anyone know how you differentiate MBs linked to multiple reservations? I sort of have three different reservations for 8 nights at WL for Christmas due to three different discounts, (don't judge me). Will our MBs arrive identified in some way so that we know which is for which room-only reservation or will we have to make sure to order three different colors and annotate which is for which reservation?

3 days until we check in Question for you regulars...we have a pre-park opening ADR for CP on Monday morning. What time should we plan on catching the bus to the MK to get us there with time for pictures along Main Street before our 8:20 ADR?

Some people have been getting a different color for each reservation. But from the reports I have been reading, one set of MBs have worked for all the reservations they have.

We did this in September for an 8:10 ADR at CP. We left our room at 7:10 AM, caught a bus at 7:30, and were in line by 7:38 AM. We had to wait about 15 minutes for them to let us in to the park just before 8. We thought this timing worked out well, because by the time they let people in the line was a lot longer.

So, if you want to be to the gate by 8 I would be at the bus stop by 7:30 to allow for up to a 20 min wait and a 5 min ride. We LOVED our CP breakfast and now have another "must do" meal.

Thanks for the tips. We, too, have an early ADR (8:15) at Crystal Palace.

You'll have to let us know, since we have a March trip planned and I'm wondering if we'll get a set for that trip.

If Disney keeps sending MB's for every reservation, people will start to have more MB's than refillable mugs.

Thanks for the reply. We'll shoot for being at the bus stop by 7:30am. This is our first breakfast at CP - I grew up in Orlando and going to WDW but was more of the day visitor back then and never ate at sit down places. Touring these days is so different, esp with kids along for the fun.

I am pretty sure it asked us to customize the name on the underside of the band. We just put our first names, but you could do something to note each reservation. Everyone in your party keeps the same color for each reservation then just use the underside to note dates of the trip.

It was my understanding though that your bands would be used over multiple trips. If you log into MDE and link the trips under the same user name I didn't think they would send multiple bands.

Hmmm... This is what my MB page looks like for three RO reservations:

You're too kind and I'm too frugal so that's why I have 3 different RO reservations for 8 nights: 40% off Night 1, 35% off 2-4 and 20% off 5-8. It's the best I can do for Christmas

MDE wants to send 3 for 3 reservations all under the same name...see above.

Your trip is almost here!

I, too, had 3 different reservations for my trip based on available discounts, so no judging here. When I customized my MBs, I did one set with the names (which are printed inside the bands) in all capital letters, one in all lowercase, and one with just the first letter capitalized. As it turns out, it didn't really matter because we were able to use just one set for the whole trip.

We check out tomorrow. It has been such a wonderful trip, and I can't wait to get back as soon as we can!

Last days are hard, but I'm glad you had a great trip and have a safe trip home (your other home). Thanks for the MB 411!
