Wow has this been a crazy couple of hours but here is what I have been able to do this evening....

I am staying Dolphin arriving May 5-10. I was able to go into MDE and link my Dolphin reservation (something I had been trying repeatedly and not able to do). That opened my FP+ selection portal, so I went into that and tried my arrival day May 5th, the message said "not available for FP+ selections". So just by random chance I skipped ahead to my last day May 9 and it all opened to me!!! I really wasn't expecting to be able to do this until March 31!

So I booked all my FP+s backward to arrival day and it then let me select for that May 5 day, weird.

Then I read a tutorial on how to individually edit times because I was not liking a lot of my grouped times given by Disney. So now I am pretty happy with what I've reserved. I will say I did feel frustration at the tiering at HS and Epcot (grrrrr).

Then of course all bets will be off if SDMC opens to FP+ haha.

I also was able to put in my reservation tonight, after trying unsuccessfully all day. We don't arrive until August 29, so I won't be able to try FP+ until end of June.

6 digit confirmation numbers are typically the property specific confirmation number. If you call central reservations they should be able to give you your 9 digit central reservations confirmation number.

Sign on the Disneyworld website. Then Click on My Disney Experience in the upper right hand corner of the main page. Click on reservations and it will prompt you to link your reservation. Does that help?

Yes!

Traveling next week and staying at the Swan. Was able to link my reservation in the MDE and also was able to link in our 3rd Party (Undercover Tourist) tickets from 2010. That took about 45 minutes on the phone with two very helpful ticket agents. The first agent was unaware Swan guests could make FP+ selections. I told her about this thread and she said (DIS) under her breath...in a nice way.

My biggest challenge is that I was putting in my resort reservation number from 2011, not 2014. Your directions were great as I used my computer not my iPad. Success finally! Thank you!!!

Heading to the dolphin in a month and have a quick question for the experts. Is it possible to request a microwave in our room? Is there a microwave on property (picabu???) that is available for guests? Thanks!

It's been a happy weekend at our house! Our youngest, Tori (who is in her 3rd year of college), applied to the College Program and within 4 days had her acceptance! We'll move her down in early September. I already have Sept and Nov WDW plans, but of course now we have to spend Christmas at WDW!!

Rates are ridiculous but I found Swan on Cash & Points for the 3 days before Christmas Eve!!! (We're DVC so I'll probably get a villa for 12/24-26 although I'm quickly running out of points! ).

When spg changed to 5,000 pts & $75 night last year I thought that was too expensive, considering it had been 4,000 pts & $60 night. Now I'm thanking my lucky stars I got such a great rate!

Congratulations to Tori! Our daughter is hoping for the College program immediately following graduation next year! She warns to have her degree BEFORE she leaves for Disney!! Lol

Thank you!

When Tori was a high school senior, we met a WDW manager who talked to her about the College Program. We were seated with him and his family at Biergarten. My family LOVES the festival seating there; a chance to meet & mingle with people you would likely never meet otherwise!

She was so excited about it that she applied during her first semester at college, got accepted, but realized she wasn't ready. They told her to feel free to reapply in the future. She put it on the back-burner for almost 3 years, but then she had lunch with her brother and whatever he said, lit the fire!

I'm so glad she pursued this. When she returns home from the CP, she will have 1 more year of college, then she'll become a Middle School Math Teacher!! (It's been her "calling" for years! God Bless her!! )

I was able to link my Swan reservation in MDE, but since the reservation is just in my name, that's the only name that shows up in MDE. So I assume I need to contact Swan and add the names of each family member to my hotel reservation so that their tickets will match up with the Swan room reservation, right? Otherwise, it looks like I would only be able to reserve FP+ for myself, right?
