Rapid Fill mug refill stations at BC/YC will be turned on tomorrow. I hope it doesn't slow down the process. And allows me to mix my lemonade with the brewed ice tea.
Will post on my experience tomorrow!

Purchase Walmart/Sam's Club gift cards from your kid's school fundraiser (2.5% of purchase price to school) and then use those gift cards to purchase Disney gift cards there (6% discount)
Ok and if you live in Western PA buy Disney giftcards during giant eagle double fuel perks using your chase rewards card during 5% bonus at Getgo and earn 17% off your gift cards. YEP. I buy 4k over the year and feel like I get a 17% pin on food, rooms, tickets, tours etc. Makes me feel better!

Sounds like you're having a great time.
So glad all was well. I personally love any kind of behind the scenes stuff.

Thanks for letting us know and promising to report back. Good point about mixing drinks! Could also be an issue for someone who wants to combine regular and decaf coffee in one mug (don't get the wrong idea- NOT ME!)

How do you know where to go for the reserved area for parade/wishes? Is it posted at the front of the park or something?

Oh and for anyone concerned about the large bugs, they are Palmetto bugs. Extremely common to Florida.

I found a first hand report of the rapid refill mugs. It looks like it's smart enough to know how much is in the cup, so you can mix different drinks until you reach the cup's capacity. That's pretty cool!

I think you're thinking about the love bugs and they are around usually in May and September. It's a Florida thing.

When you make your reservation it says preferred viewing at... So ours said Rose garden (I didn't notice anyone actually on the grass just I the walkways so I must have been blind!). There are signs there saying FastPass+ too.

Been to animal kingdom today the wait times were minimal, Kali river rapids was 5 minutes if that and we went on EE twice in a row and walks straight on, it's the first time I've been on it so got a shock when we started going backwards! Had dinner at Yak and Yeti which was nice. Just sat on the balcony before we go for a swim in SAB then hoping to go to MK for EMH if we can stay awake!
I've accessorised our elephant towel animal, today we got the animal on the left, I think its a sausage dog?

We did last week. I got less wet than 2 years ago before the refurb. I sat in the front seat too!
