Are they linked? I feel like people had problems checking in online for both reservations (with the old site) when there were linked reservations.

We showed ID at check in but not at the parks when we used them. They'll be linked to your fingerprint though.

I can start the check in. But once I try to move to page 2 it tells me the page it unavailable.

Anyone know also if you have to show IDs when shopping? My biggest concern is just having to carry around anything but my camera. Also, when my last name changed they gave me a card like they do for change of address and some people seem confused by it... I am bringing my passport for the airplane but certainly don't want to carry that around!

Great site, but bad for nerves. Rain for 2/6... DD 5th birthday!
However, weather has changed for some days.

Just booked 'Ohanna breakfast for our departure morning - super early. Hopefully mom will be on board. She's going to work the next day and we'll have a 15 hour drive ahead of us!

Just one last hoorah at my favorite breakfast place before I begin sobbing on the way out!
You created a day by day itinerary?

That one I'm not sure. I never tried to charge anything but tips to my KTTW.

Not full days or anything with each thing planned out. I did park hours for each day, ADRs, phone numbers, and a list of QS/snack menus for each park. I feel like there are more things in there, but I can't think of them.

We only take our Key to the World card and a small amount of cash into the park. The drivers license, credit cards and other valuables stay in the room safe. We charge purchases on the KTTW card. I don't think we've ever had to show any ID in the parks. They use a finger print scan to identify you as you go into the parks.

I hope so too...we are at AK as well and then to MK. Would prefer not to get rained on. But that is still over 3 wks away so I am sure it will change! Fingers crossed!

Gotcha! I was just wondering. This is my 1st trip in over 15 years. I created a spreadsheet that contains all of my ADRs. The park in the columns and times (1 hr increments) for the rows. Then filled in things like EMH, BBB, parades, fireworks, etc.
