Got the mail and there was an envelope from Magical Express, I got our tags a few weeks ago for our trip in 2 weeks. Opened it up and saw the tags with the red MK on them. Was curious and finally looked at my vouchers and it is for my trip in February!!!!???? Now, our big family trip is in December and we are at the Beach Club and don't have those vouchers yet, don't expect them for another couple months!! the only thing I can think of is, I booked my ME on line for Feb. Oh well, I hope I don't misplace them between now and Fe. 5th.

Weird. I do not even have my Mickey Mail for our October trip. I was thinking it would come soon, since yesterday was our 45 days. We paid it off a month and a half ago, so I thought it was weird that they're waiting to send it.

I can highly suggest both the Salmon dish and the Scallop dish. The Mushroom soup was amazing. And as full as we were my family shared the cobbler and the baked Alaska. YUMMMMMMY

[QUOTE=goofy4prez;49543003]I was contemplating this same decision as you; however I am not a picky eater. With all the very positive reviews I have been reading about MP, I have decided to keep my ADR and go there instead of AP.

I see you said you guys are picky eaters, I on the other hand am a very adventerous one.

With that in consideration, I would pick AP. I think you will have more choices and a little more leeway in asking if you can substitute a side or have the sauce on the side there. To me AP is more of a down home style place with very good food. Also they have a wonderful selection of North Western wines (the manager is actually on a trip there right now exploring new wines for the restaurant). In all our times (and there have been many) we have been there we have only had 1 bad meal. And that was because we had a "not so good" waitress and was when they were transitioning chefs. The chefs there now are amazing and have found their place.

MP is another wonderful place to eat. And as it is "French" food, it is Disney "dumbed" down as they try to appeal to all. When we went this past summer, there were 8 of us and all loved it. We had one couple who have never been and they had many nice things to say. The food is prepared and cooked very well. Also, we have never gotten out of there in under 2 hours. As the manager said the restaurant is a place to savor the meal. Disney tends to over book them also. But, that never deters us from going.

I hope I helped a little. Please feel free to ask me anything.

Thanks everyone, I think we are going to stick with MP! The mushroom crusted steak looks to good to pass up and I want to find out what is so special about the soup. This will be the first date night in 4 years for me and DH so hopefully we can see illuminations from the table!

Anyone headed to WL in October able to personalize MB and make FP+ choices on MDE? I read that a couple of folks were able to. I wonder if that means they added WL to the test?

If you can, please advise the dates of your stay at WL.

Thanks!!

I decided to "modify" my online check in, basically go through all the steps but not change anything. BAM, suddenly I have MB to personalize!!

Which is wonderful, because, for the 3rd time, my husbands work schedule has changed. We had added a day at the beginning of our trip, staying at POP, but am now having to cancel it. His work is driving me nuts!
Anyhoo, we had MB because of the POP stay, now we'll have them for the WL stay!!

I'm currently on the phone trying to cancel my POP res. Why, why, why do you have to CALL to cancel a room only res? Madness, I tell you, madness!!

Not at all! I love looking at all the pictures, and your room was in a great location. Was that a bunkbed room?

All these pictures are making me very happy that we are going back there soon.

Question

We are staying at Wilderness Lodge for Christmas. We have a BunkBed room Courtyard view. We were wanting to put in a request for bear face room but was wondering is there anywhere that shows which rooms have the bunkbeds?

Thank You!
I just did this and also got to personalize magic bands! I'm a little disappointed with the selection of Fast Pass+ and times?
