I think we just got lucky with the dates. We're going May 24-28th. I know the standard view in the garden wing is hard to get because it is such a good rate. Is there something going on Sept. 2014 that would have caused the rooms to be booked up so early? Maybe people booked it in hopes of getting FD with it later on? Hopefully people will cancel and you'll be able to get the room!

Thanks, WDWKOOK! It's actually my DH that is in the Army. Although I did serve 10 years in the Air Force I love the military discount! I'm so grateful they renewed it for next year!
Please add our dates to the Log-o-rail May 24-28, 2014

Ok so I heard from one of my relatives who is a DVC owner that at the Contemporary there is a whole floor that is a play area for kids. Is this true? If so where and does anyone have pictures of it? Thank you

We got our bands though! Pretty spiffy!
So you are able to get magic bands without having tickets??? I will be getting free tickets for my next 2 trips as well, and wanted magic bands- so yay!! Both my hotels are doing the test, so I am hopeful!

I thought it sounded odd. Just had to ask though

I'm holding off ordering my AP until they get this settled one way or the other. If it stays like this then I'm going to book 10 day tickets and upgrade to AP when I'm there so I can get to book fast passes ahead of time.
We did something similar in 2012, we had park tickets with our room at BC to get free dining. Then we went to the International Gateway to exchange our tickets for APs with a DVC discount. I guess we should just add park tickets to our BWV room and then exchange them for APs with our DVC discount rate at the International Gateway.

You'd also have to actually walk into a park to be able to upgrade your ticket to a pass. It has to be used at least once. It will work for us because we plan to go to a park on our arrival day anyway. We mainly want to do it for the TIW card. And before anyone asks, yes it saves us more than enough money to be worth the upgrade.
We use the TIW too

Have you tried them on yet? I am worried about them being uncomfortable. I don't even wear a watch while at WDW.
