Where can you see Epcots firework or can you from the resort?

Anyone hear of when the Magic bands will be used in January?

Is there anything that anyone can recomend we make sure we bring with us to have in the resort or at Disney?

Any tips or anything would be great as I have no clue what to expect, what to do, how the bus sytem works, nothing lol !!!
The bus system is super easy to use and it is FANTASTIC! Really cannot say enough about it on our trip this past week!

I apologize if this information is in here somewhere but I'm too lazy to read every page I called to look into getting a room using the room only discount and was told that all that was available were Pirate rooms. It's 2 adults, but we're ok with that since we get the discount I was just wondering about the location of these rooms. Are they scattered throughout the resort or in one building? TIA

Thank you!

I've learned a lot about the resort here. 3 more days and I check-in!! Super excited!

I'll be requesting the Martinque building and ground floor. It's our first family trip to the World so I'm hoping all goes well.

Love all the pictures and helpful tips!

Thank you fellow Disers!

No need to read every page, just the first one. From post #3.
Pirate Rooms in Trinidad South All the rooms in Trinidad South have the Pirate theming. These pictures were taken in a handicapped accessible room. The bathroom area will be different in a regular room.

What a great reason to celebrate at Disney! We're bringing our daughter before she turns 3 in December, gotta get there while she's still free!
Maybe we'll bump into each other!

Downtown Disney was really fun for us! We went to splitsville to bowl one day which was a nice way to beat the heat. We really wanted to go on the characters in flight balloon but it seemed like every time we were there it was closed due to weather.

Old port royale ( food court) at CBR was open until 11pm I believe.

Hi Welcome to the DIS!!!

You sure have come to the right place to get information.

There is a really good but REALLY long thread called "What is your not so normal item to pack, which is helpful that have at WDW." This is a great list. At some point near the end of that thread someone actually compiled all of the helpful information into 5 or 6 posts.

Sorry I am not sure how to attach links.

We are going to be arriving about a week after you for our vacation. Are you going to be doing the Dining Plan?

You should also come over and join "The Official January 2014 Group" and the "The Official 2014 Dates Thread" There is tons of info on these 2 sites and other disers all going to WDW the same time as us.
