Here's a link to the one and only mug thread with a picture of the current mugs, http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...postcount=1352.

Maybe a dumb question but how soon and where do you do online check in? First trip onsite

They have Mickey bars and other ice cream treats in a feezer at Fulton's General Store. It's on the right as you pass the pin wall, treats, and sundries right near the cash register. At least they did in August, unless something changed.

You can check in online 10 days enforce your trip an it's on the Disney website (where you made your reservations?)

If checking in online are you able or is it still preferred to also send in a fax request?

Also, flip flopping about purchasing PP+, anyone have any opinions good or bad about this? :-)

Don't want to rush life along, but next month can't come soon enough!

You should still send a fax if you have a particular request. Better to be safe than sorry, can't hurt, etc.

Also if you are referring to PhotoPass +, I think I will get this on our trip. I liked photopass and actually paid about $30 for the HDDR pix last time and wanted to get a few ride pix but didn't because I was being stingy. This way, I can get whatever photos I want. You do get a special voucher for PP+ and you have to turn that voucher in to get the Plus card, which is different, at your first park. You only get one + card, but apparently can add PP photos on regular cards to your PP+ account. The only thing is the PP+ card carrier must be present for the dining and rides photos.

I have called and no luck. This is another case of ignorance is bliss - if I didnt know that some people were getting free dining then I would be happy with what we have. Thanks for the pixie dust. Hopefully it will do its magic.

Thanks LisaTC! I did it and ordered the PhotoPass +! This will be our 4th trip but bringing my mom for her first time. My DD's can't wait to get Nanny on all the rides, prime photo occasions! Thanks for the advice.

I did online check in as well as sending a fax. I can tell you that faxing in my request worked out very well for me.

I had Photopass+ and I think it was well worth the money. I have over 600 pictures! Plus getting the ride photos is really cool! It was our first trip so I think it was really worth it to have all those pictures.

Anyone who is in the same park with you (your friend/family member) can just ask the CM at the monitors to write down the picture # and then the Photopass+ card holder can go back any time that SAME DAY (only!) and add the pictures to the card!

I thought the stay/play/dine promo essentially is free dining. I admit I haven't looked into it that closely because unfortunately we can't go this year anyway

How are the two offers different?

It depends on how many are in your party, their ages and how many nights you are staying. For us it is 4 Disney adults, since the kids are 13 and 12, for 14 nights. So the simple answer would be that under the stay/play/dine promo we are all paying the child's price for dining - or $16 per person, per day. The numbers don't work quiet that easily, though. After 14 days those numbers start to add up.

Where was this by the way, looks like maybe just past the fishin hole on Ol' Man Island? I wonder if they're installing more of these?
