I really this is all in a testing phase so some confusion is unavoidable, but really? This is unreal!
I have not checked in on-line and I do not plan to check in on-line. I have done everything from ordering and customizing my magicbands (see Magicband Buffet posted by Dee) to setting up fastpass plus and BOG lunch reservation. I was able to do it all. SO you do not have to do on-line check in. Happy planning.

Oh good! And should be able to customize too? Thanks!

We were facing the bus stop, which you really cannot see through the trees. Had a view of the roof. Spaceship earth to the right. Could see illuminations to the far right.
Beth were you at YC or BC? Thanks

Does anyone know what the refrigerator situation is at BC? I thought they had all been replaced but now yesterday i received a letter in the mail. This is what it says. Recently we became aware of an issue that affects two of the refridge models in our Guest rooms. As a result, we decided to disconnect the affected in-room refridges until replacements can be installed. then they apologized & gave a # to call for assistance.

We believe all refrigerators at YC and BC have been replaced, as of a couple of weeks ago. CMs there have been told that.

Has anyone there in the last week been without a fridge?

You should be all set.

I remember being about 4, and losing my stuffed cat, "Old E," and at 10:00 at night going to the hospital where my mom was a social worker (and where we'd been earlier picking her up)and getting a huge thrill out of the secretary paging over the system, "Attention staff and patients...if anyone has seen a small, gray, corduroy cat, answering to the name, "Old E," please call the switchboard."

I don't remember whether or not we found him there, but we found him...and I still have him 30 years later.

The Aquatics line is available on the H2O+ website for purchase. I have also found them at Carsons (a Midwest department store). This scent is my favorite as well! The new grapefruit line is growing on me but my heart will always be with Aquatics.

I have also found it at TJMax, Marshall's and HomeGoods.....
Not sure if those stores are nationwide, but if you're in the Northeast, check them out.

We did NOT do online check-in. At 30 days out the option to customize MB's came up on the DME site. It was a Friday - we customized and they were delivered the following Tuesday morning. I have been scheduling FP+ ever since! More options seem to be added as the days go on. I've set up Illuminations, TT, Soarin at EP / ETWB, Under the Sea, POC, Buzz, BTMRR, MSEP, & Wishes on MK days (along with BOG FP for lunch)! / Dinosaur, Safari and EE on AK day / and TSMM, Tot, Star Tours, RnR, and Fantasmic on our HS days!!
Can't wait to try them out in 23 more days!
