One day you will log in and it will say personalize MagicBands instead of manage. That is when you will be able to customize them. Completely ignore any pop up box that says something like"Get ready for MyMagic+. It is a glitch and doesn't let you customize bands or order fp+.
Thank You!!! I sooo love this site, and all the feedback! I can't wait to help someone just like myself - someday just as you have just done for me

If I recall, they are the same size as the ones in the hotel rooms, so I was concerned they might have been in need of replacement as well.
Just wondering if they have been ,or are being replaced before I start thinking about a Garden Grocer order for breakfast items.
There wasn't any problem with the studio refrigerators.

That is so nice of you to say that. I remember how lost I was when we were planning our first stay at WL this past February. The people here were very good at answering all my questions.

Just changed my check in from Nov 2 to Nov 1. We will be checking in after midnight, but figured this would be easier than spending several hours in an airport hotel before transferring to WL, considering the 1030 am reservations we have on the 2nd. The tight schedule was already making me nervous. So I called, with an upper $$ limit in mind for the cost of the room, and they were under that! More expensive, but less to worry about. And we are still around $1k less than last year! Add to this the Mickey mail I received today, and I am one happy WLodger!

I got home yesterday to Mickey Mail x2,, I got my ears for MNSSHP and my MNSSHP tickets. They are RFID cards so I am thinking I can add them to my magic band! Anyone done this?

We are loving the OFC! The only issue we had was the tub configuration in our room. We were in a honeymoon suite and it is a large jetted tub/ shower, but it has about an 18 in. high edge to climb over. It was difficlut for both of us to do, so they changed our room for us. We are now in 7046 with a perfect Magic Kingdom view.

Anyway, Kook was right, the cast here is the best. They are right on par with the BWI cast. Randy, the manager is terrific.

to the DIS and the WL/VWL thread!

We're happy to have you all the way from Ireland.

Glad you were able to change rooms and tonight you'll be able to see some of Wishes from your room!

It's a team effort at the OFC and CMs strive to go out of their way to make your stay special. Randy is very hands-on and his love of his job really shows. It's a very special and unique club level.

Since some have been asking, is the coffee machine in the lounge still Nescafe or is it now Joffery's?

Just an FYI in case you didn't know..
They are discouraging people from adding party tickets to their MDE account. When I was speaking to IT she was really emphatic about the fact that they want you to bring the actual ticket to the party. I guess you can't have two active tickets on your band or it really screws things up. I had already added them at that point.. and it made the two day tickets I had on my account disappear.
Just a heads up that you'll want to have the actual ticket and that others were reporting that they weren't able to make FP+ selections for the parties.

room location - the top floor with opened balconies, the 2nd one from the right. it was very private and we had zero noise issues
