Actually, they started selling them in the Merchandise shop a few months ago.

Just a thought. My wife and I have used this route because we know we always come back to Disney once or twice a year and it saves us money and makes for a less complicated food mission. We buy our tickets at the 10 day no experation rate. We have about 18 days banked. Some park hopper (9) and some (10) non hopper. We spent about $50.00-$52.00 per day. We don't feel like we have to be at a park every day to use all the package tickets. Prices always go up so we are saving. We take the discount (usually 25-30% off) and save big. We don't have unused food credits, she can buy kids meals (mouse eater), we can split meals and make ADR's less stressfully.
Going further we buy Disney gift cards on our Disney Visa at out local chain store for fuel points, plus rewards and save more. We are using our gift cards to pay off our POR stay. A four person stay at POR can be about $75-$80.00 (per)a night if you go to a park, plus what food you want to eat.

Thats something I wasn't sure about. The polynesian got them about 5 months ago wasn't sure it that had filtered down to Moderates. You have been really busy lately. I haven't seen you on in some time posting! Good to see you back!

You actually have 48 hours to go back and add ride photos according to the FAQs here:

Checking in on Saturday!

We are requesting connecting rooms with the ILs. Do you think we should both do online check in or just wait until we get there to check in to get the best shot at getting connecting rooms? Or does it not make any difference? I am faxing in our request today, and it has already been noted on our reservation.

I think that whatever you do, you should both do it. I also know that if there is a problem with the room assigned with online check-in they will fix it if they can, but it will take extra time. As you know this doesn't mean you're guaranteed to get connecting rooms, but they will give them to you if they can.
