Love the Disney binder! Ours is plain white - high time for me to get more creative. I would be lost without mine, boring looking as it is!

8 more days for you!

Exciting news & changes!

Before I start this post, let me just say that I spend 30 minutes on hold with Comcast because my internet wasn't working. I was about to have a coronary because I hate Comcast, but when I was finally connected, she told me to check the power source and my router wasn't plugged in. Gah I'm such an idiot...anywho...

We got some exciting news today - we got selected to try Fastpass Plus!! I was disappointed when we didn't get selected by email (I saw people posting about it), but I checked my mail today and this was in it:



Woohoo! So I logged onto the website and put in our code, and the only days available were September 22, 23rd and 24th. We leave at 9:00am on the 23rd, so the last two days were out. September 22nd was our DHS/Epcot day. Soooo I called customer service to see if I could have an earlier day, and he told me his supervisor would call me back. But then I started thinking about how I wanted to see Wishes on our last day anyway sooo I changed some plans. Here they are:

Old -
Thursday 9/20- We were originally going to MK this evening, no ADRs and no plans other than see Wishes and MSEP.
Saturday 9/22 - Originally going to Epcot around 4:30 after being at DHS, ADR at Via Napoli and squeezing in lots of rides.

New -
Thursday 9/20 - We'll head to Epcot after our morning in MK and our pool time, again around 4:30. I was able to score a 6:20 ADR at Le Chefs de France- I'm actually really looking forward to it, the menu looks fantastic and there is a *tinnnny* chance that we may see Remy!
Saturday 9/22 - We'll go to MK around 4:30 to use our Fastpass Plus attractions (which I'll list below)....then we'll be able to see Wishes and MSEP on our last night, and the park is open later - perfect!

So when you log in you can select 4 attractions - 2 from 2 different sets. I'm assuming one "set" is the more premium attractions and the second "set" is not-so-popular attractions.

From set 1 we could pick from:
BTTMR
Buzz
MSEP (no longer available - said "standby available")
Peter Pan
Space
Splash
Princess M&G
Wishes
From that set we picked Wishes and Splash!

From the second set you could pick from:
Dream come True Parade (again, only "standby available")
Dumbo
Haunted Mansion
Philharmagic
Barnstormer
Pooh
Mickey & Minnie M&G
From this set we picked Haunted Mansion & Mickey and Minnie M&G!

Next they set up a bunch of times - we chose the following:
Splash 5:25-6:25
Haunted Mansion 6:25-7:25
Mickey & Minnie M&G 7:25-8:25
Wishes 8:30-8:55

I'm especially excited about Wishes! They said the viewing area is in front of the Plaza, which according to this map (found on here somewhere):


Is a great place to be! We won't have to wait and from what I read, there is plenty of room, the view is great and there are PP photographers around. Yay! Also, we'll watch the later parade (at 10:00), so hopefully the park will be cleared out a little bit and we can grab a good seat.

They said they will mail us our FPs before we leave, so hopefully we get them before Friday!! If we don't get them, we can pick them up when we check into ME.

Whew, what an exciting update - I can't wait to be part of these tests and get some free FPs

I *think* that it's everyone checking in from 9/18 to 9/24 and using ME...the only reason we got picked was because we are doing a split stay and our check in for the 2nd part is 9/21. Check your mail!

Awesome!!!! I'm still pretty bummed that I didn't get picked....and we'll be there the exact dates that they're testing!!!! (18-25th)

As for your new plans.....we're going to overlap!!! We'll be at Epcot on the 20th in the evening and we'll be at MK on the 22nd in the evening. We also want to see MSEP and Wishes that night.
