I want to apologize ahead of time for these questions, I am sure they have been answered before. Just way to many posts to read them all. I did go on the MB info thread but it was closed. So I'm going to ask here.

1. Will the testing phase for the MB still be going on Oct 18th - 23rd?

2. Can we still do FP+ and FP?

3. I ordered the Photopass+ and should receive it this week. (I assume it is
the card with lanyard). Can they link it to my MB?

4. If they link it, Will it just be my band or on all who are traveling with me?

5. Can the PP+ card be used also with the MB?

Again sorry for all the questions. I am planning this with another couple and want to get all my questions answered before I give them any info.

Any help would be GREAT!!
THANK YOU!!!

Yes for MB testing. The Photopass comes with a voucher you exchange in Disney for the card and lanyard. Not sure about linking it to the MB though.

I suppose that's why they use the phrase "fire codes" though and not "fire suggestions"... haha...

And thank you so much for this idea... We will definitely try it. So glad it worked out for you! POR looks like a beautiful resort, and it's one we haven't tried yet. Here's to hoping!
I hope your parents go. Better yet hopefully you get into POR. POR will be our resort from now on until my youngest can 't fit in the pull down bed! She is still sleeping with us yet though

Ummm, you should of read the quote first. I was asking about the DTD ME pick-up test.

Thanks. It really is a great set up they've got over there. It'll all work out in the end, one way or another!

OK, I've now finished the full versions of 12 new Panorama images (11 around Riverside, one of the new FQ Lobby). The last couple took a bit of work!

Rather than me posting 48 separate links for the Flash/Quicktime/Standard/HQ files here, please see www.portorleans.org/panoramas.php where they are all available for downloading or viewing (they are marked as NEW so you can find them easily). I'll add them to the live preview pages tomorrow or Monday.

I've still got one left to do (Royal Room with the new-style portrait photos) but it's fighting me at the moment.

We check-in 10/23 & I have been able to customize our MagicBands and make FP+ selections. I cannot seem to make a Be Our Guest FP+ though. I enter our MB confirmation # and it allows me to choose days we are there (10/23-10/30) but no matter which day I choose, it says nothing is available. Am I doing something wrong? Love this thread, thank you!!!

I would totally use it for the extra rides. Toy Story Mania is tough to get a good return time except when you go early. Maybe Soarin'. Splash.

We jut got back from a 5th bday trip. Let the resort know it's his/her bday. On my daughter's bday, she got a,voice mail from Mickey and Minnie wishing a happy birthday. For every ADR I made, I clicked bday celebration, so she got a cupcake and a card from the characters. She loved all the attention. Is your child a girl? My parents paid for my daughter to go to the Bippity Boppity Boutique and she absolutely loved it. I asked her today what was the best part of her trip and she said getting her hair done and walking around the MK like a princess! She got it done on Tuesday and we just took it out today, Saturday, so it does last!

I love the panoramas, they are amazing! I just have one problam, I can click on the links in your posts here on the Dis and the video/panorama will open in a new tab, but when I go to your website all of the links want me to download first. What is different about the links?

Thanks again for posting all the pics and running the website.

It sounded like it's here only this month for POR and then they may start to add other resorts very slowly based on luggage storage available at DD. I think that is the big sticking point.
