I recommend everyone with a trip coming up check their My Disney Experience page a couple of times a week to see if magic bands are available. I did not receive an invitation to test, but found that I could order bands for our late October trip. I have our fastpass plus reservations made too.

And, I renounce any statement made regarding villains and lawyers. They are wonderful people.
Oh, you make me laugh AirGoofy. I am a lawyer and I totally get it. Several years ago I had my DD, niece and nephew with me on a bus from Magic Kingdom to BWV. We were having a nice time and the gentleman sitting next to me asked how it was traveling with 3 kids. I explained that my niece and nephew were just coming over for a slumber party while my sister and BIL went out for a nice dinner and adult park touring. He asked if I was an elementary school teacher. I confessed that I was a lawyer. He looked at me shocked and said "you can't be, you're too nice."

(And I did read your white text -- always read the fine point!)

We are staying at BWV 10\12 - 10\19 and have our Magic Bands.

I called a few weeks back and the MC made it sound like the Magic Bands were forthcoming but never stated it. Then about 10 days later, another CM kind of gave me the wink\nudge treatment when I asked about getting our Tickets and such. A few days later I went into MDE and looked at my profile and there was magically an option to customize my Magic Bands!

It was like midnight on Friday and I picked colors for my family and figured I'd review\confirm with them the next morning. Next morning came and they were already on their way to my front door! Had a UPS tracking number and everything.

I like the idea of being able to schedule FP+ but dislike that you only get 3 FP+ at ONE Park. We are Park Hoppers and would like to maybe have a FP+ in the evening for Soarin' after a day at DHS.

Thanks. I like to throw a little humor in there every now and then to see if people are paying attention. I have a lawyer in the family and a couple of lawyer friends as well. People can be nice or jerks, regardless of the profession.

I have lost this discussion with DW. She has suitcases out and is packing and we are still 10 days away. (We're at OKW and cheating in BWV again.). I also travel and have my to go bag packed, so I realize it is a lot easier for me to pack quickly. It does add to the excitement around here.

Bump and Ticker

So we needed a little bump and I needed to see that I am now under 1 month to go!

We split stayed between BLT and BWV last year... In my opinion, the sleeper sofa at Boardwalk was much better than the one at BLT.

We were in a BWV studio a few years ago and I slept on the fold out bed. It is not as comfortable as the regular bed (and, I believe it is just a full size -- not queen size -- but it was just me in the bed). We are kind of commando park goers, so when we're hitting the beds for a nap or night time sleep, we're pretty darn tired. Thus, I slept fine and was raring to go the next day. The fold out didn't have the obnoxious bar across the middle of the bed like a lot of pull out sofas do.

If you are expecting it to feel like a bed, you will not be happy. If you're not really a Princess and the Pea, you'll probably be fine.

22 days out until BWI and I ordered new suitcases. Tomorrow I start packing the carry on. MB, photopass+, MNSSHP tickets, AP, and laminated copies of ADR, FP+. I am hoping for a little room for clothes!

Agreed. I'll be sleeping on one in about a week.

We are staying the same days at BWV! I have Magic Bands - but the FastPass+ site doesn't recognize my husband, son, or my tickets - only my daughter...she is the only child on the reservation. I can see them on the bands and cards site, but when I go to FastPass+ they aren't there. I have a couple of calls into Disney to try to fix it I so want to use FastPass+!
