I'm concerned about this meaning we won't be able to customize our FastPass+ until after we arrive or possibly not at all. Anyone have any experience with this? I don't see a section of the My Disney Experience page that allows me to participate in FastPass+ so maybe it's either to early for me to do so, or we don't qualify since we are using speciality tickets.
The military salute passes are not able to be linked yet. If you buy regular discounted passes on base, you can link them. I will be buying the military salute tickets for our family trip in Dec. and am hoping by then we can link them. I know they are working on it. More info is available at http://www.militarydisneytips.com.

The number one thing I want to book is the special viewing area for Wishes on the night we are eating at BOG. Everything else is flexible. But I'm sure I'll book a few FP+'s just in case.

I called Disney today to buy park tickets and I got another CM who absolutely loves the WL. It seems like most of the CM's I encounter tell me how much they love the WL.
I would get some FP+ anyway. Especially for his favorite rides, for late in the afternoon. Then just let him be "flexible" and go about your day, then when things are crowded in the afternoon, whip out the "hey honey, guess what, i've got us FP for such and such".

I just checked MDE and the "Personalize MagicBands" option was there. I'm so excited. Five more days and I can make FP+'s.

THIS IS GREAT!!! your status bar says you are 2 months 4 days out - How many actual days are you out? did you just do online check in and it appeared? It looks like I will miss you by 1 day, I get there on the 6th - so I'm not sure when December stays will get the mb option??? very happy for you

We are 65 days out, so we don't get to make fp+'s or do online check in for another five days. So far I haven't seen any December check ins get MB's. I was hanging around the November group and we have been waiting and watching all the October check ins getting MB's for weeks.

Thanks for the info about the salute tickets, that's what we are using and we are going in December as well, hopefully they are able to link them by then!

This is sort of a random question, but does the WL lobby have a distinctive scent like the GF, BC and Poly?

Can't really remember one..

We arrive at WL on Nov. 5th and our MBs were made available yesterday. We have 10 days to customize for shipment Oct. 6th. We haven't done the online check-in, yet.

I don't think it does, and if it does, it's too subtle to be distinctive to me.

I think it smells like hickory.. I love it. AKL is the same.. I love sitting but the pool and smelling the drifts of smoke..

I think it use to be stronger, but they "turned it down" several years ago...that was back in 2003 or 2004

Unused case of water up for grabs

We are at WL right now and have an unopened case of water. If you would like it I can leave it at bell services for you. It is a 32 or a 36 pack.....I forget which. We are leaving Sunday morning 9/29. Please PM me if you are interested.

Paying it forward Disney style!
