Oh boy! There was a story on my local news up here in NH about the my magic+ band.....starting this spring....it's coming!!!

I just don't understand how people who want to utilize the FP+ times will know its live in order to choose. They are picked at 60 days out and we are going to be there before we know it.

IDK, do we really think they're going to be all booked out 60 days in advance like ADRs are? I hope not. They talk a lot about being able to plan for them "on the fly" in the parks...... maybe they only put out a certain amount of them for advance booking like at 60 days, then more at 30 days, then more at 15 days, etc. and leave some for that day?
It all seems so complicated and unnecessary.

Saw that this morning on WMUR. I don't like not having all the information. If it's going to be used starting in spring, they should be telling us more about it now as spring arrivals have already booked months ago. Grrrrr. The fast pass thing sounds awesome and hubby hates the big rides, so seems like instead of being able to book 3 rides for the kids and I I could ude hid and get 6.

i think its going to be tied to your personal info which are stored in the bracelets so you couldnt use dh' s - it would only be for him to use.

Ahhhhhhh yes that makes sense.



Well I called Disney to ask about the wristbands and they seem to know less than we do. Ugh. He says he doesn't know if they will be available in the spring or the summer and that he has no idea how we would go about booking the fast passes at the 60 day mark. All of their new "innovations" while exciting are typically also frustrating.

yeah, I wouldn't plan on getting any useful info from the CMs any time soon. The people on the DIS will know more way before the CMs do.
I don't think it's really going to be ready for our trips. Maybe in trial run mode, but I foresee lots of kinks and bugs taking months and months to work out before they officially roll it out.

Yup, good old WMUR.

My DH thinks these bracelets are going to be awesome, and are going to lead to more relaxation because now we'll be able to get FP's for later in the day and not having to hit the parks early (we are NOT early risers on vacation), so now, even if we sleep in, we will still have our fastpasses....good point...

for the weather questions, Weather Underground (www.wunderground.com) shows historical averages and highs and lows. Average high for April in Orlando is 81; average is 60.

WTH!?! I'm having major problems giving my $$$ away to someone to make me some custom outfits for DD!!! The woman I've used in the past hasn't responded to FB messages or wall posts - I don't know if she's just too busy or what. then I found someone on Ebay and I LOVED her fabrics, so I messaged her telling I'd be interested in ordering several in a slightly different style (i didn't want full long dresses but more long tops to wear with bike shorts/leggings) and never heard back from her either! Posted on the Boutique thread asking people to message me if they were interested in making some and only heard from 2 people, but they don't seem to make what I'm interested in. I LOVE the stuff of the woman I used before and can't seem to find anyone who makes the same sort of stuff.

Just noticed you are checking in the same day as we are. You driving from here or flying? We are driving for the first time. Cross fingers.

Flying....there is no way our little princesses (or us, lets be honest) would make it through a 24 hour drive...we think driving to Storyland is too long!!!

But, for the first time, we are flying out of Logan, because MHT was just too darn expensive!

I've switched my resort to POR. The dates are the same!

I just noticed that a lot of us are New Englanders! Waves!

Haha, yeah I'm not sure we are going to make it all the way there with all of our marbles. We are taking two overnights on the way down and two on the way up. Hopefully with not too much time in the car at once it will be fine. Hubbys mother lives 10 minutes from Storyland, so nowadays it seems like a trip to the corner store for us.
