Here are a few pics from sunrise this morning on the balcony.




And a few from 11PM last night:




WCC was totally quiet

I love how they leave all the tables set perfectly, just ready for the next day.

We are having a ball. Allie's dress yesterday was one Melissa made from a Planes T-Shirt.


Also we noticed the RapidFill screens are turned on at RF, but the system still is not active.

Smile 1st post

Long time reader, but this is my first post.
I'm very excited we leave today and will be at WL tonight.
DH and I have been before but 1st time for DD, DSL and DGS3.
DD is expecting and has just been diagnosed with gestational diabetes so we are a bit nervous but more excited.
We have magic bands from a previous trip DH and I took for our anniversary last month, can,t wait to see if they work.
Needed To share with someone and knew you all would understand.

It's weird with the FP+ times that they "preselect" for you. What I ended up doing was selecting the option that came closest to what I was really looking for, then going back and fine tuning each time by doing a change on it. Ended up with better times for some, but we're not that picky.

I've gone from wanting to avoid MB's and FP+ to now being afraid that we're going to miss out!
As of right now, they haven't announced the testing will continue after 10/31. But who knows, it could open up for you at any time. I've found NO WHERE that says that WL was added to the October testing. I'm just glad I had to go on to MDE for something else, I only had 6 days left to customize my bands! I would just keep checking on a regular basis. Good luck and I hope you get some pixie dust!

Odd for a TA to hold a reservation number until final payment is made. I had mine the day my TA booked it and put a deposit on it. Yes, you will have to manually add your package reservation number. It should pull over your ADRs though, since they are connected to your package. If not, loading them manually is not difficult at all.

I just checked with WDW reservations and the IT group this morning. They seemed to confirm that Magic Bands and FP+ are going live for all resorts by 11/1. Most late October reservations should now be showing Magic Bands.

I'm checking into Fort Wilderness in October, and sure enough, Magic Bands and FP+ were added overnight.

I'm leaving in 2 days for WL and I am so behind in packing/prep!!

I feel like it should just be assumed, but I'm trying to save space wherever I can - there are hair dryers and irons in all the rooms right?

I'm going to be Disneybounding as Belle and Snow White and both outfits are already wrinkled without time to iron before I leave...

No, it's not a DVC rental. I used a friend of a friend for a TA and supposedly policy is to keep the confirmation # until final payment. Perhaps I could have changed, but she got me all the ADRs I wanted and a Free Dining woods view room at WL so it is what it is.

In any event, I spoke to her and she's emailing me my confirmation #'s.
