In regards to POP and magic bands.
- In response to the poster who said you will be notified 60 days out, it seems like that's what will happen eventually but right now they are still in trial mode. I'm 52 days out, staying at POP and to date I have NOT received email about magic bands or pre registering for fast passes. I was told I might not get them at all, I just have to wait and check back from time to time.... I'm hoping to get them because it will be easier for us to use the bands.

We are 2 adults with 5 kids...so we had to book 2 rooms...we requested adjoining rooms since we are one family unit, but they can't guarantee it....this is causing me stress. Anyone have experience with this? Did you have trouble getting adjoining rooms?

Thanks!

I know it's bright and early but I promise you'll want to hurry
Today is not the day you think, keep reading to find more clues written in ink
We haven't been in years and we've really missed seeing those ears
For months we have been planning and today your wishes we are granting
No need to fuss cause magic and fun await us
So grab your bags and do a twirl because we are on our way to DISNEY WORLD!

I seriously tear up every time I read it. Can't wait!
I just got chills! That's awesome!

The only way I knew to customize my magic bands was through here and when I logged into my account a box popped up to customize. I never received an email or snail mail invite.

You should change your request to connecting rooms. Adjoining rooms might get you rooms that are just next to each other.

We just got back from our stay at POP. We loved it! We had to ask to be placed in the building we preferred, but was accommodated with Building 5 semi lake view top floor as requested. Some may know this...but the curtain that separates the vanity/bathroom area from the room was a great bonus! I was able to get up and ready before the kids, and get our park stuff together while they slept All enjoy!

My res specifically says 'guaranteed connecting'. I know nothing is guaranteed but it makes me feel better. Like the others said make sure it is connecting not adjoining.
