My friend who did get the invitation also had to swap a couple park days. She was really shocked when she found a Tusker House available on the day she needed to move it.

Lots of ADRs moving around these days. Give it a try.
I looked and I could swap my AK day with my MK day and still be able to have ADRs at the same restaurants. I'm just nervous about changing my MK day to Saturday. Saturday never seems to be a great day to tour the Magic Kingdom.

I don't know what to do!!!!

It is also turning out to be a giant pain to try and coordinate ride times with the people on the other reservation.

Could you please tell me how to find the website to put our DME # into. I hope we are included!

Thanks

If you're on a lower crowd day now, stick with it. I would not go to MK on that Saturday just to get 4 FPs.

I agree with that. The difference between Saturday with FP+ and Thursday or Friday without FP+ just wouldn't be worth it.

Disappointing. We are traveling Dec 9-16th and registered for ME. We havent gotten an email, and our reservation number (DVC) into the website and just keep getting an error message.

I had really hoped that since we were using ME and staying onsite during the test period, that we would have been invited.

We got ours on Saturday and I signed up quickly! Kind of like making an appointment to ride. I was thinking twice about my selections today and went back into the system to see if I could get different rides or times and all options had changed. I picked the Barnstorm, Peter Pan, Little Mermaid and Thunder Mt Railroad in MK and TT, Toy Story and Little Mermaid show in HS.

Not sure what their plan is about how to offer this. Personally, I don't think I'd pay for this option especially during the dates we are going. We are not a very scheduled park touring family. One meal reservation a day is about all I like to do. Excited to try this, nonetheless!

We are going the same dates and didn't receive anything either. We are also signed up for ME and are DVC.We received the same error message. If you figure out how to log in correctly, please report back. I'll do the same.

Not everybody got it. I'm Dec 8th-14th and signed up for ME and have been trying every day. It seems like we are the minority.

Tip: Use the number that is on your yellow DME tags. There are other variations if the number on different materials but it has to be that one.

Also, they clearly pulled the DME list a couple weeks ago so if you added or changed recently, those changes will not be reflected.

Yes, not everyone has been selected. We are staying onsite and have not made any changes to our ME reservation. I've tried inputting both our ME reservation # and our resort reservation #, and no go.

In line to enter Epcot, cast members saying Test Track is opening with park.

I blame my lack of consciousness for misposting, bah.

I called about 15-20 min ago to add my missing guest. They said it could take up to 24 hours to update in the system and that, if you made FP+ ressies already, that they would have to be canceled for the new guest to show up. She said that it can take up to 24 hours for the new guest to show up, but sometimes it can take an hour. I went to cancel our current reservations to get the ball rolling, and as soon as I did, my guest showed up! Less than 5 min! I reserved the same exact times for DHS and there was only a change of 15 min on the MK times I chose, so we stuck with it! We are going to do MK on Saturday, but my last window ends at 220, so we will high tail it out as soon as we get the last ride completed. I was attempting to avoid Saturday at MK, but since I can guarantee a few rides, I'll suffer through it. These are just 2 days out of my 7 and I have MK a few more times scheduled, so no biggie. It will be interesting to see how it works on a busy day!

Just signed up my days & times. We are Dec.. 10th thru 18th.

I signed up for HS the 14th for ToT and Toy Story was hoping for Fantasmic option.

Signed up for MK the 15th for Wishes, MSEP, afternoon Parade Dreams Come True and Voyage of Little Mermaid.

I'm hoping Tue Wed & Thur will be low crowd days and we can pretty much do what we want, maybe party Tues night then figure these will help with higher crowd levels Fri & Sat. and hope for the best come Sun & Mon. 16th & 17th.

Wonder where you go to get "in" for preferred seating at MK? Near front of Castle but where and how early, they say they expire after 30 minutes.

Thanks for any tips.

I am wondering this too, as we signed up for the parades as well. It does say to be there between 6:40-6:55 for MSEP and 2:40-3:00 for Celebrate a Dream Come true. And I am curious how crowded this reserved area will be....like will it still be 3 rows deep and my young kids won't be able to see?? Maybe someone who knows more can jump in!
