WooHOO! was able to pick Magic Band colors and FP+

I guess POR guests are part of the FP + starting in September. I was checking MDE and saw that I "Need to hurry up to customize bands as they are being sent soon" So I clicked as the Option to pick Colors was there!.

We are flying in on 01Sep-02Sep at AKL room only and POR package with FD starts on 03-08Sep..

We are in Germany.. Website ( us one) said that bands will be sent to address in Germany.. but I highly doubt this as we NEVER get mousemail. I assume the box will be given to us at check-in..

Anyone else with Sept ressies been able to do this?

Thanks!

I never posted a lot, but learned a whole bunch through the boards. We leave on Thursday and I wanted to thank all who post informative questions and answers, especially Andre and Venomhatch. We are so excited to have our first family vacation, and I am better prepared because of you!

Thanks Again!!!

Nope - we're at POR September 7-15 and nothing yet. I'd guess your AKL reservation is what's allowing you to be part of the testing...I hope I'm wrong, though - I hate being left out of the opportunity to play with new technology!

online check in

Hi,

Quick question about online check in and credit cards. I don't mind providing a credit card as a room "bond" so to speak but we are planning on paying for the majority of purchases in the resort and parks by cash as we exchanged our spending money when the Aussie dollar was still above parity! Is it possible to not have "charging rights" on your key to the world cards? and is it possible to complete online check-in and skip this process? Thanks!

Yes you can have them set up no charge privileges to all cards.

Venon can I do this on the website during online check in? It wouldn't seem to let me past this step without setting up pin numbers, etc.

No you will most likely have to do that at check in. Even if you do online check in they will already have the KTTW cards ready but they can destroy those and generate new ones with no charge privileges.

So I would be better off skipping online check in and just faxing them a few days out I guess? Only 29 days to go!

Its a pretty new droid. But the real issue is its my 15 yo daughter. You can guess the freak out that she had. Verizon can send a new one this week. What address can I give them or should I ask the front desk?
