Was wondering how early we could get breakfast etc.... And how late to eat something coming back from parks...

Oh, and does the food court have to be "open" to refill your mug or is that always available?
From post #3 in the FAQ thread:
Open 6:00 am Midnight
Breakfast served 6:00 am 11:00 am
From 11:00 pm to Midnight, mostly snacks are available

The beverage stations are not available 24 hours. The food court/beverage stations need to be open.

If I book a standard room and request a king bed, how likely am I to get my request? Our dates are 10/22/13 to 11/4/13

It will be my husband and I and our DD. We plan on renting a full size crib from an offsite company for DD.

Whoops! I knew to look there but FD day has fried my brain Sorry about that. For some reason I was thinking it changed at different times of the year.

Please say either new design or new colors? The pink and aqua are nice but hoping for new ones in November.

They are still selling black, blue, and pink until the switchover to RapidFill RFID chipped mugs. At that time we'll probably see at least new colors if not a new design.

Does anyone know when they're switching to these new mugs? I'll be there in two weeks and I'm hoping not yet.

Hopefully that will be before November but if not then I think I will survive.

possible view of fireworks?

Hi, I am a total newbie to the World. We have gone many times to DLR, but are bringing our bunch to Disney World for their first time. I am so amazed how much different everything is just for planning!!
I was able to get 2 rooms at Pop for the end of Oct, and had read on another thread that some rooms have a view of the fireworks. Our kids range in age from 3-16, so I would love if the big kids could see the fireworks even if the littles are tired. Can anyone clue me in as to the best rooms for this view?? We have standard reservations.

Thank you soo much!!

Hard to say. Since the new soda machines are being installed that may mean it could be any time. The original news story was saying July at All-Star resorts to start. Now that it's August, it could be imminent.

Since the machines are being installed now I'd guess the new system and potential new mugs (at least colors anyway) would be there in November.

We think the resort pizzas from the food court are really good.
