Granted we're not staying at GF but we are going within days of you also in Oct... I called this morning to move our resort to POR instead of CBR and the CM was very insistent on making sure I knew what My Disney Experience was and the links for MB's and FP+ ... so from that conversation I'm thinking that soon enough us Oct trips will be hearing from them maybe?

Do you or anyone else know if YC is testing the first week if Sept? I am trying to help my friends.

I believe both YC and BC are testing for September.

Can we still do tips via gift cards though? We always buy gift cards for tips before we go, that way we don't have to charge anything and we have cute gift cards to scrapbook (we order themed ones from Disney Gift Card's site).

I watched Illuminations from the "special viewing area" last year during F&W as a Disney Chase card holder. They say this area is the best for viewing and the show was designed to be viewed from there. Though it was an excellent view, I personally would not waste a FP+ on Illuminations. There are too many other excellent locations for viewing Illuminations around the World Showcase Lagoon.

I'm sure you could, but I think your easiest option is to put your gift cards onto your room account - meaning charge your tips back to your room, and pay off that with your gift cards before you leave.

This is what we do. We buy GCs & get them from family throughout the year and the night before we check out, DH just goes to the front desk with a stack o' cards & settles the bills. We always spend more than planned this way, though. It's easy to do when you're not counting!

Yea, we've always just used them at the restaurants so I hope the magic bands don't mess that up . I think I'd still prefer to do it that way, we just don't really care to charge back to our room. Plus, the wait staff gets more tip if I use a gift card since when I purchase gift cards I round up to make sure I have enough to cover the automatic 18% I know we will get charged.

Is anyone having problems with MDE right now? My dd is staying at POP and when I login in to her name I can see all her info and fastpass+ stuff. When I login in to my own ressies at POR it says blip in the system and won't let me access any of my info. I am trying to change some of our fastpass times, We are going in Sept.

When: 9/21 - Contemporary (1 night) = got bands and FP+

When: 9/26 - 10/4 - Port Orleans Riverside (8 nights) = got bands
BUT: I only got FP+ for 9/26-9/30.....
SO: what do we do for the 10/1 -10/4 = do we get the cards?

Sorry I am being a downer but I ALWAYS have problems with MDE - it is constantly making me resign in - or it doesn't change the calendar day I want to move to (i.e. I change the date and it says 9/27 but the activities are for 9/26 of which I just made additions to). I am very frustrated with it but have to keep telling myself - they are testing, they are testing, learn patience, you will be there soon.

My sister has finally gone in to HER MDE - yesterday I could see all of her tickets and all of mine. Last night after I got home and fininshed the bands I went back in to finish our plans and went to my reservations and her tickets were gone! Freaked me out. CM said that she needed to be sure she linked me. I call my sister, told her to check. She can see her tickets so I am happy again. Not gonna worry about whoz is where as long as it is there and shows up - don't want to get all the way to Florida and find out we don't have tickets for her!
