Yes, I guess I suspected you were Irish. : )
When I say Irish takes over, I mean it. I don't know what DH would have done if I had not agreed to Irish names for the kids. Even the dogs are Killian and Tullamore Dew! We've also had roosters (rescues, don't ask) named Murphy and Guinness! I truly am Irished out! Good thing I didn't strongly identify with my Brit heritage. LOL!

Mine doesn't!!!!

When I hover over the circle with the i in it next to the view details I see this:
Only a portion of your vacation package details are listed here. To view complete details of your vacation package, please check your confirmation which you received either by mail or email.

So I would not panic and go back to your confirmation email instead.

Beginning of Dialog Content
Ready for a New Kind of Magic?

Whether you’re a participant in the MyMagic+ test or are planning your upcoming Disney vacation, please take a moment to get the most of My Disney Experience.

Get started by adding the people you travel with to your Family & Friends list, and then link your Resort hotel reservation and tickets to enjoy exciting new MyMagic+ features—like FastPass+ service—when they become available later this year.

Create Your Family & Friends List
Link Your Disney Resort Reservation and Theme Park Tickets

Even if you're not participating in the MyMagic+ test, you can still continue to enjoy all the perks available from the current FASTPASS service.

When I click on the close button, it just brings me back to whatever page I was on. I guess I could always reach out to Disney too!

again, thanks for the help.
Dan
Did you link your resort and tickets to your MDE account? If you booked over the phone or with a travel agent you will have to link them yourself. You can actually click on the words that say "My Disney Experience" and then you will see all over your dates listed with your plans (like ADRs and eventually FP+). To the right you will see something that says "here's where to start" and under that you will see choices that tell you to personalize your magic bands and make fast pass selections. You can also do what Rejoyce said and hover over the words "My Disney Experience" and then make sure your choose the words in the white box to the left that say fastpass+ not the ones in the blue box that say that (that is the learn about side). As I said though, your resort and tickets need to be linked for FP+ (you only need a resort for MBs).

On a funny note when I clicked on MDE tonight I finally got the popup telling me to make FP+ and to personalize my MBs - they've been done for 2 weeks now and I only have 3 days left, but at least I got some notification. Granted I probably would never have hit on that button if I wasn't answering your question and I wouldn't be answering you question if I didn't already know all about MBs and FP+.

I assume that means we ended up with similar schedules too! It seems like ages ago that I was trying to figure out which days to hot which parks. ..,

And actually, DH is 1/4 Italian too, although he will never bring that up voluntarily. Whats up with you guys? the Irish really does take over!
They do make cute babies though. : )
Well I LOVE the bagpipes!

It is true, Irish does tend to take over - strong genes? Maybe it is because of their reputation on being friendly and slightly drunk that makes people want to identify with them

Really? Weird. Mine lists it above the little i. Did you book online? I did, and I booked a complete package, maybe that is why my stuff all shows up.

Good thing you didn't, ever hear the song "The Orange and the Green" by the Irish Rovers? One of my favorites.

I met someone else online who rescues chickens so I actually don't think it is that weird.

As for the Irish names, I really wanted Kieran and Patrick, but I dated a Kieran so that was out and my hubby didn't want our son to be called Patty. I did get Patrick as a middle name though.

My original reservation was booked on Line in January but when free dining came out I called and whined that I've been planning this vacation too long to not get Free dining magic added. So she brought the bad news to me that I had to leave FQ and go to CSR. I sighed and said ok I'll save the $700+ and move. pout pout

I really hope CSR lives up to my expectations. I know FQ would.

Oh ya and the CM said to me "Well aren't you like most guests that you won't be at the resort much and mostly in the parks? Does it really matter where you sleep?" Um lady! Sorry your job has you missing the whole point of magical experiences based on an individuals likes and dreams.

So ya to make me feel better I booked a reservation with the new discounts for February at POR. Still not FQ but at least closer.
Again I hope CSR lives up to my expectations for Disney.

So to answer your question, I guess my package was booked not online but the phone cause she had to move my resort and I couldn't do that on my own via online.

I just thought of something & I hope someone can answer. I have Fantasmic FP & show is at 6:30, park closes at 8 on our day & what I'm wondering is, will we be able to see the Osborne Lights? I really want to do both as DH & DD didn't want to do Fantasmic last year because they didn't want to wait 60+ mins to get in. We've never been during holiday season & really want to see the lights. Please say we can do both.

That's my plan!!
From my understanding the lights go on at dark. Dark that time of year is 5pmish. Fantasmic is about 30 minutes long. Which means you will have an hour to walk over to that area after. So with FP+ you have about an hour before and an hour after to check out Osborne lights. I'm hoping to catch them before or catch them during HS EMH when we leave MK because that is not our MVMCP night so I understand I'm being escorted out of MK when my Crystal Palace dining is over around 7:30.

So I wouldn't panic over not seeing them.
Honestly I've never seen them so I have no idea besides a bunch of lights, what to expect. and I assume I'm not going to need 2 hours to see them.
Anyone want to correct me go for it.

The Lights stay on for quite a while after the park's official closing time- they really want to give people a chance to see them after Fantasmic ends. You should be able to see them either before or after Fantasmic with no problems.

We usually spend 30-45 minutes just hanging out watching the Lights and enjoying the music and atmosphere. You will love it- it is so much more than just a bunch of lights. Hard to describe the WOW factor to folks who haven't experienced it yet.
