I might be in the minority but I don't really want the Magic Band right now. That's why I have not linked my tickets. I am thinking of this as my last trip "the old way", and because we are only there for 6 days, and it's very Food & Wine intensive, I don't want to schedule any FP's. (We only have 1 ADR, and that's Raglan Road on our arrival night). I just don't want to.....

But, I'll jump on the bandwagon in preparation for our August trip. I just want to be free for one more trip.

As of now if you are at a test resort they will give you a MB at check in if you haven't ordered one ahead of time. It will be gray. They will also give you the standard room key in case the MB doesn't work. I' ve been doing a little testing. I've scheduled my FP+ with the MB, used my current room key, my AP card and get this I've also been able to use my old expired room key for FPs. So in if I wanted I could have 7 FPs at the same time! Now I haven't done this cuzz it's such a slow time I really haven't needed many FPs at all. Also I'm now at OKW which is not a test resort but my magic band stll works. It's crazy!

I think I'm safe! I just read that check-in's at POFQ starting 9/30/13 will get the Magic Bands. We have two check in dates, 9/27 and 9/29, so I don't think we will get one.

Is you MB still valid for charging if your not at a test resort? Or is it only good for park admission and FP+? Curious because we have back to back weekends coming up and our first one is at Pop (for now) and we did get MBs.

I think you can opt out of testing anyway. They don't force you to use them, lol!

I just moved resorts yesterday and I haven't tried using it for charging yet. Will do today and let you know.

Thought it was odd I was able to make FP+ selections yesterday. Have no clue what I'm doing with that. Need to sit down and do a bit more research on what we've got planned.

Logged in this morning to be able to customize our MagicBands! Wooooot! I'm going to pick pink for Miss M -- wanna take bets I pick the wrong thing?

Also, anyone with Disney Infinity, you can get some special hoobiejoob if you so something or other with the band and the game -- get a dragon or somesuch?

Will be back in a jiffy for a real reply.

Good morning to all of you. I'm feeling slightly more energetic today, which means up to a snail's pace from a rock's but there ya go.

He is so right, Jen. The boats, the walking... you know you love it. For your family, I'd absolutely stick with CL. You know first-hand how useful it is to have the snack room. (Aren't I being the enabler today?)

How's it there today? We got COLD overnight here! Had to put on long sleeves this morning. Naselnex, YES! You've got me thinking, Miss M has some for when she's sick (it's the spray, I think?) ... I'm kinda tempted to take a bit. That's wrong of me. Will see if Dayquil has any effect first.

I bet they'll start adding more resorts -- or even just larger groups of folks -- as the test progresses. I've got hope that AKL will be included again. There's time yet.

Will we be getting a F&W report? Yes, yes please? Yep, I meant POFQ, y'all will like it, I'm sure. It's such a pretty little resort. Can't wait to hear what you think. It's one of the "if we stay Mod again" resorts along with POR.

I agree completely. Since I find it to be too much when we schedule too many ADRs, the idea of also scheduling FPs has me a bit The only FP+ I could be all with is Toy Story Mania 'cause it's such a bugger. But I am sure I will EVOLVE.
The worst part of the FP+ planning implementation stuff we saw was that in August they took down attractions that never had long lines, reconfigured them, and installed a FP+ line. Now even "meh" rides had a line, like Great Movie Ride.

Remind me of your back-to-back weekend dates and where you are.

How very well said. "Young" goes by quickly, too. Like when the mind says "go, go, go" and the body says "maybe lets go back to the resort for an hour and 'relax'."

TGIF and DEAR day in my classes today. That's all I have to say. So last night DD was still awake at 10pm and had a rather restless night which meant I was up and down most of it too. I gave her some meds before bed, but maybe Benadryl would help her sleep instead? I'm a little over halfway through my antibiotic and I still sound horrible, although I do feel better at least. But couple DD's restless night with DH having to take MIL to the ER for swelling and some pain. Didn't know if it was a possible blood clot. Took them 4 hours to get an ultrasound and rule out a clot. Probably just side effect of the steroid and some sciatic nerve pain. Had a bit of a meltdown after he left since I hardly saw him or talked to him last night (he went out for beers with a friend of his and called me on his way home to ask me to get his stuff out so he could leave quickly for the ER).

Thankfully, we have a date night tomorrow night. Dinner (not sure where yet) and then to see Rent at the outdoor theatre we have here. So looking forward to getting out of the house and (hate to admit) getting away from the kids for even a few hours!

Ok, that's my vent for today. :-)

Sheila: Hope you're able to catch a little nap / relaxation time today.
