Sorry if this info has already been posted, but I don't want to read all the posts. We're going in December, so we haven't done this yet.

What are the things you decorate your bands with? Does Disney charge for them or do you order them with your band? Also, does anyone know if the Croc charms fit in them? I have several of these Disney Croc charms left that I could use if they fit.

I just completed online check in for our trip! Is there any strings attached I need to know about? Our trip is paid off, we arrive in 41 days. It looks to me like it is just a way to speed up check in at arrival, and put in room requests. I'm hoping I didn't check in and it will cause me problems if for some reason something happens.

Second, can you have the bands but not fast pass+?
Ya never know what resorts might be chosen. I believe AK and CR were the first to start the trial and now it looks like POR, Pop, and AoA are to start in September.

And FP+ is just a feature that is included as part of the MagicBand features. Your selections are stored in the band and when you go to the ride you just swipe your band, instead of having a piece of paper to show the CM.

Here's the low down on MB accessories:

Does not look like the Jibbetz will fit; holes look way to small and I am sure Disney made sure of that. : )

I bet they did make sure of that since we probably all have a bazillion croc jibbetz. Lol

I don't have a definite answer to your first question, but I think it's definitely a good possibility that you may have the MBs in November.
As to your 2nd question, the answer is yes. Just like the regular fast pass system, it's available but you don't have to take advantage of it. Sometimes, even if you want to use it you won't be able to because there's no FP availability left.

On another note, my 23 yr old DD decided she now wants to go with us. When I booked in December and asked her, it was yes, then it was no cuz she got engaged and now itís yes again because her future DH will be working during Thanksgiving. This change takes us from 4 people to 5, so as many of you know our options are limited.

I spent an hour on the phone with great CMs. We changed from CBR to AoA. I hope that wasnít a mistake. We have a family Cars suite and where able to keep our FD+ plan (I did have to pay the difference). I'm sure it will all be great.

So Iím back to stalking the ADR site and this site for canceled ADRs. It seems going from an even number of people to odd creates a whole set of different problems. Iíve been able to increase a number of the one I already had, but of course Chef Mickey and Be Our Guest are little more challenging. Wish me luck.

I only hope when it comes time pick out the nursing home, she remembers this.

Did you have a free dining pin or did you book with the general public code? That is great that they switched resorts and you got to keep free dining for a resort that did not have it unless you had a pin.

Great news! Yay! I do still need to purchase PP+ too, but once air is booked things will feel more final and i can focus on that stuff. Our airfare didn't go down yet...still hoping!

It had been up to $414 lately! I was getting a little nervous. Ended up at $278 so very happy. There was one discount airline at $188 but once you figure the checked bag fees and the other fees (we will also have our stroller so don't want a charge for that too), and we have the Delta card so our bags will fly free, it didn't save that much and now at least we'll get the miles too.

Once you book something nonrefundable, it makes it a lot more real!

Thought I'd ask to see if any of you guys know .... I sent an email to Disney last week letting them know the frustration of using Travelocity. I wasn't sure which subject line to choose, so I chose the one about "my recent visit" then noted in the email to please forward to someone else if necessary. Anyway, I didn't get the quick automated email saying you'll get a response soon. I thought that I possibly did it wrong and didn't hit submit, so I re-did it tonight. However, I still didn't get that automated email. Does it not come through for some subject line choices??? It did when I sent emails about the hotel reservation subject line and the ticket subject line.
thanks for your help!

Too funny! It's very interesting how different Disney fans can be. I am totally opposite. I have itineraries printed out for our October trip (made them in July)... not only which park which day, but what time to leave the resort and which rides to do in which order, where we're eating and what time, etc. My family jokes that I should have one of those tourist flags for everyone to follow, but they do appreciate it when they realize all the fun they're having. ...Or, maybe they would prefer your strategy some days...but I'm not offering it up to them...

Yes, I would have booked at that price too! You definitely made the right decision. I was tracking one flight that i now over $500! I really wish I could have known I would have gotten FD right away so that I could have booked when airfare was as low as $250. Darn Disney and their marketing!
Yes, and with something non-refundable, my DH can't change his mind about this whole trip! LOL!

Hope the airfare drops for you. Our flights were made long before our package was--because we used awards miles. So our dates were set long before any FD rumors. I just lucked out in that my dates fit the promotion and that I was able to switch to WL from POR (no monetary savings, but we're pleased).
