Same thing is happening for me too. Except, I can't choose FP+ yet. I bet it gets worked out in the next couple of days.

Same for me, gray! I don't want gray! I check in Oct 19, maybe it's just too far out yet to pick a color?

We always ask for connecting rooms and so far have gotten them. I was looking at the map on PO.org and couldn't figure out where the connecting rooms are.
Are the chances with our room location and view, make our chances really slim to get this request? We are getting FD and so far haven't been able to get 2 rooms with any other location at PO.
Center of the building next to the elevator on the 3rd floor in Parterre had a connecting room. The room was river view and was a fantastic location. There are river view connecting rooms in both buildings.

Now on top of not being able to pick a color, I'm getting an error message trying to get a BOG lunch It says


Thank you for participating. Please try again later. If you continue to encounter this message, you can seek further assistance at the Lobby Concierge desk at your Walt Disney World resort or upon arrival at the Be Our Guest restaurant.

Thanks, Andre

I was thinking that all the resorts have them, but I just wanted to make sure. This makes it possible for all of them to be able to do the magic bands by our January trip, which answers my question without muddling through the pages and pages and pages of magic band threads. And thank you again for being such a good host for POR & POFQ. They are our favorite resorts!

So frustrating because our littlest is only 3 (still small enough for a pak'n'play even), and it would be so easy to squeeze into one room at Pop, but we're supposed to do 2 over there...
Try sending an email to Disney telling them your desires. Let them know you will still have a magical vacation at Pop, but had your heart set for POR with free dining and your family of five. Be gracious. This is what we tried and they replied by phone in the affirmative.

Email link is under help/contact us on Disney sight.

I've completed all of the variants, plus HQ versions, of 11 panoramas now, and I'll link them all up tomorrow (just add "_HQ", or use the .mov extension, with the above filenames in the meantime).

How do you get the whole lobby without a single person in it?

It is hard, really horrifying, to imagine your family receiving any negative fallout on a bus or other instance...Believe me, there are people like me that if we see that happening we defend and inform!
Hope you all have a joyous time, you will love the cruise!
Thanks!

You are right, we've been treated like royalty first time we visited. Different from everyday life. Disney is usually very good with special needs.

I made reservations on the Fantasy 25 months in advance so we can get the very last Stateroom, with a HUGE veranda (stores the wheelchair easily lol!), like we did on the Dream in 2011. DD is ecstatic! We can only have a magical cruise. What else? This is exactly why I bring her back: that's the only place in the world where she is treated like a Princess all the time and can have a break from her physical, intellectual, social and emotional effort-all-the-time life. (Which actually gives me a break too........)

Poussière de fée!

It was $15/night. When I was checking in (I forgot to do online check in) I was told there wouldn't be a fridge. I told the CM that we had ordered groceries. She made a phone call to try to get us one. She gave me the credit without having to ask. It was a bit of a pain to store our stuff in the Luggage Room, but it was doable.

Can you explain more....where is the luggage room? Is it one big fridge that is open to everyone, i.e. can anyone just go in where you put your food?
Thanks!

I just want to share some love with all of you on this board for your info and willingness to answer all our crazy questions. I was just able to make our FP+ selections for October 8-14, and I am over the moon! I would never have known a) what to do when the time came, or b) that the crazy things were even available without all of you, special thanks to Andre for this board!!!

Good luck getting the selections you want everyone!!!

Thanks,
Allison

PS - yes, part of me recognizes the sheer insanity of being happy/excited for booking my day down to the hour over 6 weeks in advance. What can I say, I'm a Dis addict

PPS - can't see where we could get magic bands yet, even gray ones, but I'm much calmer about that than FP+ Strange that the stuff doesn't roll out consistently for everyone though.
