Could be about this new Fastpass system they are testing out. Calls are being made to guests arriving in May.

Same thing happened to me. I even started a thread on the board about it. I then figured it was about the new Fastpass system after reading some info on the Theme Parks Board. I feel slightly better knowing somone else had a missed call as well with no notation in the system. I was convinced that something was going to be terrible wrong when I check in on Thursday.

So my curiosity overwhelmed me and I started a Disney chat with a CM online. They gave me a number to call that explained the following to me (not exact works):

You received a call letting you know that you may be picked to participate in the new FastPass program. Walt Disney World guests arriving at the Orlando airport and taking the magical express will be picked randomly to be in the program. This is only open to resort guests at this time. If you have any questions at that time, please feel free to ask.

And that was the end of it… I didn’t know what else to ask?

Any thoughts?

I definitely don't want to forget to add our anniversary to the res - I have a couple of questions about this, if anyone could answer them for me

Can I note the anniversary on the online check in? Can I still do online check in with a aaa res?

Would it be better to call before online check in to have it added? If so, can I call Disney directly to do this, or do I have to call aaa?

I am so unfamiliar with how booking through aaa works. I know you have to call them instead of Disney to make any changes, but I wasn't sure how to handle something like this. I appreciate any info you can give me
I have booked through AAA (and also not booked through AAA) so I can help you out a bit on your questions. First, make sure you know your reservation numbers and your Travel Agent's full name! You can call Disney about your reservation but they will ask you for the TA's name. Your TA should have asked you if you were celebrating anything special and had Disney add it to your reservation. If not, or if you just want to check, call Disney directly and have them add that celebration.

You can also pull up your reservation online. Use your disney login/password. Go to my reservations. Click on the add reservation and they will ask if it is resort or dining so choose resort. Then put in your information for the reservation (using YOUR name on the reservation, not the TA). It can take a few moments so be patient but it should pull up. Then it is linked to your login and will be there everytime you log in. You can use online check in as well. When you are ready (and it is within 10 days of arrival), go online and pull up that resort reservation and just click the online check in.

Now, I have used online check in for WL and Poly and neither of them allowed me to enter in a request although they did provide some pre-text requests like 'adjacent rooms' or something. They only had two request options in there. But I've heard others say that their resort had different request options and some allowed a free form text. I am not sure if that's true or what BW has as options. I would say either way, call in your requests to Disney as soon as you know them. Then if you check in online and you can't add your requests - and you don't see them noted - call Disney to make sure your requests are noted.

Hope that helps!

I don't know the room numbers or exact locations, but both the Standard and BW/Water Views have rooms with King beds.

It has been a long time in coming, since our first visit back in '89. Unfortunately DH and I both held jobs that did not allow taking time off during the holiday season. We are retired now and can finally go.
