I think you only need a pin if you want to have charging privileges. If you don't use online check in you will choose one when you check in. It is just a way to keep your account safe should your band pop off and also keeps things from being rung up under your account accidentally if your band is too close to a reader.

THATS IT!!!! I knew I had to pick a pin at some point for something and it was 4 digits but I couldn't remember where. and I knew it had to do with my MB. I'll go look at modify check in and see if I can change it there. Otherwise I'm not worried about charging to my room. I have to carry my Disney Visa around with me anyway if I want discounts.

Love you all!!! So super helpful to have people that can remember things for me. I'm super glad because people around here are tired of me even giving them the countdown and I just need more social time about Disney than they are offering. Some would say "get a life" but I guess most of you would agree that right now "Disney is my life" and that's ok. I know it will be here and gone before I know it. And probably pretty lonely since a lot of you are going the week before me, but hopefully the rest of you will still keep me connected until we all leave.

Gonna have an andriod tablet with us, so I hope to be connected during vacation. Of course that is if I sit still long enough.

so either I'm entering the same code and it's messing up the system, or the online check in modification option is broken right now.
I did find the pin code thing in there and tried to set one but it's not letting me do it right now. At least I feel a little better knowing what it was for and so on. As I said if I can't get it fixed at the desk, I'll have my Disney Visa with me anyway.

Thanks everyone.

How old are your kids? I think, generally speaking, Pirates would probably be better for younger kids and also for kids that aren't big into card type games. Pirates and Agent P are more interactive within the park.

Very cool about the later MK closing, but HS has been scheduled to close at 8pm the whole time so that is.
My DS11 is also a huge Magiquest fan. He wants to go to the big site in S.C. :-)

My son also loves SOTMK. I would say though that Pirates is probably better for younger kids. Actually, it's supposedly geared to younger kids and some reviewers said it won't present much of a challenge to older kids. SOTMK, on the other hand, can be a little hard to follow and managing all the cards is a challenge. We're going to do Pirates in the morning because it's new but we'll probably never do it again. We have most of the afternoon dedicated to SOTMK.

Also planning to do some Wilderness Explorers (just watched Up this weekend) and, of course, Agent P.

It is nice to be able to talk Disney to those who won't sigh at you

I did get to talk a little Disney last night though. My in-laws were over for dinner and it was the last night to modify our Magic Bands. I know my MIL said that she and my FIL would just rather have the gray bands so they "blend" in, but I figured she hadn't actually asked him. Sure enough he said "why did you order my gray, green is my favorite color". He also wanted me to change his name to Paperino, it is the Italian name for Donald Duck. Too cute. Of course my plan backfired because now we have even less colors because they both picked colors my two older boys already picked and then my youngest was sad that no one was on his team so my husband had to switch to orange so that the youngest had someone to match. Now we are going to have less colors in the box (7 people, only 4 colors). Oh well.

The online check-in is a bit crazy, even the modify part. I tired it a few times, and it lets me get past the choose pin thing, but I never get to the end. I think it took though since I did get a test text. If not I'll finish when I get there.

Was that your first time seeing Up? Did you bawl like a baby the way my husband and I did?

I have a 6, 10 and 13 year old, but they never worry about things being babyish. They will want to do all those things. We have two days at MK so I'm sure we will get to both things for at least a bit. We are definitely doing the Agent P Adventures, but I didn't look into Wilderness Explorers, I vaguely remember seeing something about that - but no details stuck in my head.

That is too funny. Love that your Father in Law got into it. LOL on your mother in law being boring. I was informed by a friend that "grey" was not a color. LOL I knew I wanted pink, dh picked green. I don't even remember other than red/blue/grey/orange what that last option color was. LOL

ya no text messages for me.
I guess I'll just figure it out when I get there.

MB Benefit

Just read a post in another thread where one of the rides someone had a later FP+ for went down. Because a cell number and texting option was selected as part of their MB, Disney texted them suggesting they request a new FP+ time to avoid the down time. Very cool.

Tears pouring down m face. I think my DS is a little miffed that a Disney movie was so sad.

Wilderness Explorers is a book that you get stamps in. Like a more elaborate version of the old AK Kidcot stations. Unlike these other games, the stations are part of the regular park attractions. We plan to pick up a book as soon as we get off Safari.

Looked it up.....YELLOW which would be DS19s choice if I was taking him. LOL

I did a google search and started laughing when

a picture of the magic bands without the grey outer band. Did anyone else see the purple band? Yellow must have replaced purple for some strange reason.

I laughed and feel sad for you purple fans. Not sure why the option was excluded. But the customized bands with the designs were interesting.

Can wait to get our His and Hers bands!!!

33 days to go!

I only got the text message when I first did the online check in, even though it didn't get all the way to the end then either. Did you put in your cell phone number and check that you wanted to be texted when your room was ready?

I agree, gray is not a color. The colors now are red, green, blue, yellow, orange, pink and the non-color gray. Figment chick has a picture of them on the second post.

I never even knew there was a kidcot thing in AK last time I was there, shows how much I know. Thanks for the info about the books, I'll definitely look for them.

Yes, Up was a real tearjerker during that montage. Our kids thought we were crazy when they saw tears streaming down our faces in the theater.

Grey stuff

Hey was just catching up on Disney food blog.
The Grey stuff is now on the menu officially for everyone!
I like the cupcake option at lunch too.

Funny, I had only heard about the Agent P(but we only did the old Kim Possible game) game until I read about the Pirates and Sorcerers games a few days ago on this thread. They are only at MK, right? I wonder which one would be good for all of my kids to do together? Tough because my DS is 12 and soooo mature and doesn't always want to do the "baby" stuff my 5yo. does.

I didn't hear about the Wilderness Explorers until today. Is this just at AK? We did do a passport a few years ago at F&W. You have to go to different countries and kiosks and get their stamp in your passport book and when you are done you enter the main pavilion in FW and they mark you complete.

And yes I bawled my eyes out when I saw Up. It gets me so depressed so if the kids catch it on TV, I have to leave the room.

Yes, Wilderness Explorers is at AK. There are two passports in Epcot - the one for Food & Wine (also for flower and garden) and the Kidcot one. I'm debating whether to do a Kidcot passport this trip since we'll only be in WS part of one day. DS really enjoys it though.

Josh just posted updated hours. There are a lot of extended hours. Now I have to decide whether to squeeze more stuff in.
