You can ask, but they don't have any to give out.

There are some technical issues (like changing FASTPASS+ ride times shows both the original and updated times on MDE itenarary, and disney tech support said they're aware of it and to just ignore it.)

Without digging through the whole thread....

If I need to ship something from amazon, do I use the address on the first page of this thread?

Yes. I did this, it arrived during my stay and got delivered to my room while I was at the park!

Just make sure you put your name and if you can, reservation number.

It's early Sunday morning and all i'm doing is playing on MDE and this site. We're under the 40 day mark and I so can't wait. It's already started getting cold here (at least no snow yet).

I think I have everything but of course there are a few hiccups.
Made the FP+s but my sister is who lives in Florida hasn't purchased her park tickets yet, so I don't know how the FP+s will work out when her family's w/us.

ADRs are made, but again, with hiccups. When my youngest DD decided to come I had to change all the ADRS for 1 more. As many CMs have told me going to an odd number is difficult.I have a BOG for 6 but need 7 and was finaly able to score a CP for breakfast for 4 but of course I need 5. Have the perfect 1900 Park Ave dinner reservation for a day we are NOT at Disney and now they want to spend that day at Universal AKA Harry Potter land. So I have to let that go, but can't seem to make myself do it yet.

This year I even went so far as to order matching shirts, not just for 1 day but for 3 days. I am driving the family crazy and have great fun doing it. How's everyone else's plans coming?

Ok, I have to ask, how is Fast Pass + different from the regular ones?

You will be able to choose three Fastpass + Attractions for every day of your visit well before you arrive for your vacation.

The Theme Parks board is loaded with MagicBand and Fastpass + threads if you'd like to read more.

If you have an account on the Disney on Line site and have a reservation scheduled like the dining reservations, w/in 60 days out (I think) you can make fast pass selections for rides and special events. I think the jury is still out on whether or not this is a good think. I'm mean really? Needing to know which park you going to be in on which day at the right time so you can utilize a fast pass you picked 2 months before you left?

We'll see.

The only downside if you choose not to use Fastpass+ is there may not be any regular Fastpasses in the parks. You do need tickets attached to your reservation and you use the My Disney Experience app to link all your tickets, plans and Fastpasses.

Post AoA Trip Report link

Hi all - I stayed at AoA in a Finding Nemo Suite, Building 5, last November. I'm finally getting around to writing my Trip Report, you can find the start of it here.

I'm going to post AoA photos and my review of the resort today.

Enjoy! We had an amazing time at AoA!

Great thread!

3 different matching shirts? Are these from disney store? We only found 1 type (the grey one with faded Mickey) for the when family. Please post details of where you got the shirts from. Thanks.

If you go to www.etsy.com that is where most people get their matching shirts. LOTS of people make all kinds of them, just search 'custom disney shirt' or something to that effect. I just ordered 4 different sets for our trip. Also, they have custom lanyards, luggage tags, pretty much anything you can think of.
