You can still ask questions of the cast member to help to find your way around the resort, etc.

If you are intending to send in a faxed room request, make sure you do the online checkin FIRST though (up to 60 days out if you wish) before sending your fax around 3-5 days out.

If we have done online check-in and then the start the magic bands, do you think we'll have the opportunity to participate?

We are staying in a Royal Room. I decided to just let the computers assign us a room. It is me, my husband and 15 year old daughter and we don't mind long walks. I need to burn off those mickey bar calories
We had a royal room at our last stay. River view, very nice.

Yes, you can go back and edit your online checkin info later (e.g. to add a credit card, or change PIN numbers, etc) so I'm sure that will be possible too. Setting the keycard PINs only started after I had done my online checkin for our last trip, and it was easy to go back and add that.

I'm ready now... I got my final ADR, the Dessert Party for May and now I can relax and just wait 38 days until I get to POR!!!!

Of course relaxing for 38 days probably ain't gonna happen as I seem to get more excited as the day comes closer!

Tomorrow is 60

Tomorrow is Day 60- finally. I called guest services today because I needed to change something minor. When I mentioned online check in is tomorrow the CM told me "Oh no, that can't be done until 10 days out." He even went and looked it up and read it to me. On my profile it says 1 day, so what is accurate?

It's funny. I got my MM today and it also said 10 days for on-line check in. On line, it said 60 days, which when I did it. I'm confused as well. When I get to 10 I guess I'll redo it.

That's what I did. LOL. I don't remember getting an email confirmation after the 60 day checkin but I did get one after the 10 day one

I ate there once, years ago when my sister stayed at POR. her last name is the same as the restaurant, so they HAD to eat there!! I could have sworn it was for breakfast.
Anyway, is it good enough to use a TS credit? And about how far in advance do we need to make an ADR? We still have 98 days, but are a party of 8.
They used to serve breakfast, but no more. I absolutely would recommend boatwrights, we ate there our last trip and it was amazing. We were able to get it as a walk up, but we are also only a party of two. I would say go ahead and book the ADR if you know when you might want to go, you won't regret it.
