I'm sure they'll get it fixed for you! In the meantime, heed my wisdom re: the FP+ selections

It's seems real once you start packing. Happy packing, Judy

Pool Closure/Fence Update

By Jason Garcia, Orlando Sentinel
11:06 a.m. EDT, September 26, 2013

Walt Disney World says it will begin stationing lifeguards at its largest hotel pools during all operating hours and then locking them down overnight, six months after a young boy drowned while a pool was unguarded.

Disney says its largest and most popular "feature" pools will begin opening at either 7 a.m. or 9 a.m. and closing at 11 p.m. Lifeguards will be on duty at all times while the pools are open.

But guests will no longer be permitted to swim in the feature pools after hours. Disney plans to install fences around any of those pools that are not already gated, a process that will begin in the coming months as hotels roll through their regular renovation cycles.

Only smaller and unguarded "quiet" pools at some hotels will remain accessible at all hours.

Disney has about two dozen hotels and time-share resorts across its sprawling property.

You're amazing Kook! Right there with up to the minute news. This won't really affect my use of the pools then and I'm happy.

I will start packing this weekend.
To go along with your favorite smells - I love the sounds of the Boardwalk - the music in the background, the boats out on the lake, the bikes on the boards of the Boardwalk.

I will love to see those creepy kid chairs in the lobby! LOL

Packing this weekend too. I can't believe I'm not packed yet. I'm a compulsive overpacker. So, so looking forward to this trip. First trip as Freebirds (kids off to college).

We're also starting our packing, too!
I'm sure there will be some bitter-sweet moments without the kiddos there!

I know I'm in Disney when I hear the Friendship Boat horns! I LOVE waking up to them no matter how early it is!

Magic Bands

I was so excited last night when I got home from work and my magic bands were in a package on my front porch. I then got a really good laugh when I opened my mail and found an invitation from Disney to participate in the magic bands test for my trip at the end of October. It talked about how to order the magic bands I had already received :-)

I love the Boardwalk, but I am probably one of the few that likes the garden views the best. Too much noise on the Boardwalk side to get all the sleep I need to go all day in the parks.

So, after reading the letter, are you going to order some MBs?

We prefer the Epcot View, too; less noise and fewer lights. We can both be in the minority together
