You are so right-it is just back to my original plans of using FP if needed. and if I was never on this board I would never have known any difference hehehe

I would just like one because I think they look so cool. They will probably have them when I am back in 4 years

I hope they let me customize my magicbands soon! I'm checking in on October 17th. I'm so excited to be getting them! I'm just hoping they stay on the kids wrists. I would hate for them to pop off and the kids not notice. Anyway, for those who have customized them, what colors do you get to choose from?

Also, Andre... I LOVE your POR site! When I thought for a bit I was going to have to switch to CBR I was sad. Not only because I wanted to stay at POR but also because there wasn't an awesome site with so much info like yours for Port Orleans. Thanks so much!

I agree, and it is even more strange that they show the same mansion building room photos for the Preferred Location category (for which all of the rooms are actually in AB, so none look like the ones in their photos). For more images, take a look at the room photos in the Photo Gallery on my site, which include 360-degree panorama views of all the room types (www.portorleans.org/gallery.php).

Riverside and French Quarter are still at around 50%. Genuine medical requests are all being fulfilled, and everything else is being dealt with on a case-by-case basis. 500 more fridges are expected by the end of the month, which should improve the situation still further, and they should all be replaced by early November.

You're very welcome, I'm glad I could help.

I am here now and we got an awesome room! I'm up, waiting to wake up my dh and daughter to go to tusker house breakfast...

Anyhow, I reserved a standard royal room. Didnt make any special requests or send a fax...

We got water view and we have a corner room and parterre place. The cm who checked us in didn't mention it. It's a great room though, love it!

My daughter absolutely loves all the princess touches.

Of to AK!

From memory, there was pink, red, blue, green, the standard grey. I want to say yellow or orange but can't remember.

More about Magic Bands.

So, customising magic bands has just become available on the MDE website, despite out trip is only 24 days away (11th September) and we are in Australia, AND haven't checked in online yet. Worth a go? Whats the worst that could happen??

Can't hurt. The worst they could do is reset the computer and it is all gone. But it is only a few minutes of clicking, so go for it. We did a few days ago and expect to receive mail/email today or tomorrow. We've done all our FP's for 9 days and customized our bands. The message still says, "shipping soon."
