Those are buildings: 14, 15, 18, and 27

And you have to book a preferred room to get those, well usually.

No Royal Preferred sorry. You best ones of those are River View. They can have the best view and quick access usually to main building, main bus depot and food court.

I don't eat onions-they squelch when you bite into them
I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

You're welcome. Me too! I'm happy for any magic that comes my way, but even no pixie dust is still a Disney vacation.

We are here now--checked in this morning about 930am and our room was ready about 2pm. We sent in a fax requesting Bldg 26 2nd floor and here we are! In our fax we had stated how much we enjoyed a specific room last year and they have given us the EXACT SAME ROOM!! Soooo thrilled! We have had ZERO problems so far with the Magicbands although some people in line ahead of us at the food court seemed to be having difficulties with their PIN--they also seemed not to fully grasp how to use the bands. Thanks to this thread we are fully prepared! Thanks Andre, Venom and everyone else! Will let you know any major issues or any pixie dust moments! Off to Turf Club for supper!

Oh Andre, I think tat direct to room idea would be bad for the fact I have heard of many guests getting sent to a room and there is already someone in that room checked in!?!?!? Also Storage behind the wall for the MBs isn't big enough for all of them so that isnt the best either. So in my opinion I believe they are in the right course the way they are sending them. I don't foresee too many forgetting their "Keys to the World" Magic Bands!!!
Playing devils advocate, what happens if someone forgets to bring the bands with them on their trip?

They would issue cards or magic bands. If I understand correctly, the bands are very easy to attach to an account so you would probably be able to get a set of uncustomized bands. For a small fee of course.

Yeah I haven't seen this happen yet, but I could imagine they would get KTTW Cards with RFID chips instead.

According to Josh, KTTW cards are being phased out at the end of this month so they would most likely get an uncustomized MB.
