We check in on Sept. 7 also. Customized our bands on Thurs and received them Monday.

Yea! We can customize our magic bands now! Awesome. I can't wait to arrive there.

Now I just have to have an order of diapers from Amazon sent to the resort.

Can I just say how much I love this forum, all of you who share your wealth of knowledge, AND especially Andre and Venom?? I read about POR getting MB on Sunday (both here and portorleans.org), and on Monday the link magically appeared on MDE! I customized them right away, and they came this morning!!! My babysitter is taking her family at the same time, but they are staying at Coronado Springs. No MB for them. POR really is the place to be!!

Lime Green for me, of course!!


At this time in exactly four weeks, we will be in the Magic Kingdom!!

Andre - fantastic panoramas!
We loved our room in Magnolia in 2011, but the Alligator Bayou shot you have out there makes me want to give the lodges a shot...haven't put in any requests yet, really thinking about just being adventerous and being surprised...

I am in the "Were Sorry! The selected date must be within..." camp as far as fast passes go. I've checked in and am under 60 days, (Oct 12 arrival) but if I'm reading the posts correctly, nobody with October and later arrivals has been able to get the fast passes or magic bands yet. Even though some are within 60 days?

Anyone tried or know if we can link MNSSHP tickets to DME and thus the Magic Bands?

That seems to be accurate. We're checking in Oct 19, have done online check-in, and I have no access yet to either fp+ selections or MBs.

Nothing I've seen indicates there's currently any access beyond 9/28.

We check in on 9/4. I customized our bands and had them in 2 days. Maybe you should call about them.

Ok, I admit, I'm too lazy to search the thread. Feel free to flame. :-) that said, I have 2 questions.
First, has anyone been able to ship a case of water to the resort recently? Usually use our snack credits for water, but I want to save those for F&W this year! Thinking about shipping from Costco. Any suggestions? Best address/form to use?
Second question, does anyone know what bathroom amenities are in the rooms? Body wash or just a bar of soap? Separate shampoo and conditioner or combo?
Thanks for the help all!

I can help on the bathroom stuff. When we were there at the end of May, there were separate shampoo and conditioner, facial soap and body soap. No bodywash
