We have 21 days until we leave and I am so excited:-)!! We were there in October for F&W and it was super duper crowded. I am really hoping for slower crowds this time around. I haven't started packing the family yet...crazy whether, 85 degrees in Cape Canaveral today (Mom lives there) so I am not sure how to pack!?!? It was 73 degrees here in Charlotte today :-)!!

So w/online checkin you WERE able to select a particular floor?? We are staying at BLT in MK view but we want a higher floor room and wasnt sure we could select that via online checkin

Yes, I was able to pick highest floor, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, boardwalk view, canal view. I would suspect it'd be similar for you!

I started to pack some travel sized stuff. Got a very nice travel set from sephora that included shampoo, conditioner, volumizer, and hair spray inside a very nice case that could fit additional items. I also have two Disney shirts I packed. The only real reason I am waiting is because I have no clue what the weather will be like in 3 weeks. Things could change in an instant!

Actually I never had that choice with online check-in today. Where in the process did you get tower those choices? I suppose I could've missed it, but I was intentionally waiting for that to pop up and the next thing I know it said I was all finished. I had already called a month ago to make a room request, do you think it's just already in the system? Kinda worried about it now.

DH & I will also be celebrating Valentine's Day with dinner at AP. That and Flying Fish Cafe are our two favorite WDW restaurants. Our ADR is 5:45 pm. Depending on when you are dining you might enjoy going out on the WL beach to watch Wishes and the Electric Water Parade.

We'll be spending the day in AK because I am a critter lover and and really like Kilimanjaro Safari, Pangiani Trail, Maharajah Jungle Trek, FOTLK & Jungle Jammin' Parade. And Flame Tree Barbecue is our one must do CS. So we'll just be doing some of our favorite things in one of my happy places. DH is sweet enough to indulge my Disney passion so long as I do all the planning and just get his input on ADRs.

Wow, there's no way I could've missed that. I never saw anything remotely like that. I plan to call tomorrow to check about my requests. Thank you.

I checked in for VWL online. My only choices were lower floor and near elevator, neither of which mesh with what I requested when I made my room reservation. I also did not have the option of choosing a ready room or my requests.

I don't think there will be any consistency with online check in until they fix the website.

Ditto!
