Maybe she should extent her vacation just to make sure she is there.

Bought one for my brother for Christmas. A little more money than I planned but I know he will get a big kick out of it and hang it up at home.

Cool, have fun. They extended the hours there that night too so I'm sure you'll have fun. Liked your selfie.

We have already started to customize our fits by cutting some of the band off and sanding down the edges. My youngest didn't want me to pull out the orange part to make it smaller (like they recommend for smaller people). Once I did his and saw how much easier it was to put on we all got to chopping. Now I don't have to worry about wrapping the excess around our wrists and they feel more comfortable too.

So you took the dark grey part off?
I was wondering about that and if it would be less bulkie and more comfy.
Mine will be ready to ship tomorrow. I think today is my last customize day if the midnight thing is right.

No, Disney suggests that, but I like the way it looks with the dark grey around it. Instead we cut off some of the gray from the end to make it shorter. If you take off the dark gray outer part, you can't put it back on later. My wrist is too thick for the gray part to be removed anyway.

Definitely cut the excess grey off; it cuts really easy with scissors. I actually used one MB as a template so my cut followed the shape of the original strap end. So much more comfortable now.

I also recommend closing your MB as you would normally wear it, then placing it under something moderately heavy, Mickey head up. This forces the MB to develop curves that match your wrist, comfortably keeping the Mickey head on the outside of your wrist and the soft band parts on the sides (bones) of your wrist. Does this make any sense?

Got my DME booklet today (well really last week, but had shipping issues, so I couldn't pick it up until today) and I still can't get a BOG lunch ressie. I guess Disney really wants me to stand in line

I'll be standing in line right there with ya! I still can't get one, either

Ah, on the 18th...we will be at MK. It's our last night I didn't know there'd be such a part-tay going on at HS. If we're feeling it, we may just hop on over there. Are they closing late that night or something? We planned to go on the 17th for EMH.

Please pray for me. The whole booking and planning of our vacation went way too easy and now that we are in the stretch we have encountered one family crisis after another. I'm trying to stay positive and excited about my vacation but warning flags are going up everywhere. sigh

for only being 1 month away.

in hopes everything gets better.

Her mom is an angel who took care of the little ones after the surgery.

Our Magic Bands arrived this morning
I hope your grand niece mends quickly.

I hate my Magic Band

The little prongs that stick into the band to hold it on are driving me crazy. They are irritating my inner wrist. When I make it looser the band spins, if I make it tighter and it hurts. When I leave it at what I consider to be just right (I can still slip a finger in between the band and my wrist) the nubs are annoying as heck.

This is why I don't wear jewelry.

OK, I posted this in the restaurant thread, but I thought I'd ask here too:

Dinner at Chef Mickey's at 5:15 or Crystal Palace at 7:45? Which would you do?

We haven't eaten at either place. We are going to MK that morning and then probably taking a break for the afternoon before going back to the park for dinner and the evening so both locations work well.

MK is closing at 9:00PM that night and there is no MSEP. We really want to see Wishes since that will be our only chance to see them in the park (we will most likely see Holiday Wishes from the Poly Beach a few days before).

Obviously we will be cutting it close with the CP reservation at 7:45, but it is not during a busy day so we might be seated near our time, and I can always send the kids outside to see the fireworks with my husband or one of the grandparents (as long as they don't miss it I'm fine). Can you see the fireworks decently from outside the Crystal Palace?

The other character meals we have are breakfast at Ohana and dinner at Garden Grill so we will see some of the classic characters then.

I've heard some really bad things about Chef Mickey's, but I know my boys would like to eat in the Contemporary, plus we will have PP+. The timing might not be the best because it wouldn't give us much of an afternoon break before getting back (we are staying at OKW). My boys will be 13, 10 and almost 7 when we go. The 13 year old is a great sport and has no issues about dining with characters being babyish. The 10 year old enjoys everything about life and will totally go along with the whole character thing.

I'd love to get either place at 6-6:30, but that isn't happening this late in the game.

What would you choose and why?

Thanks.

Can someone confirm or clarify a Raglan Road restaurant question?
Are the dancers there 7 days a week?
TIA

I have it turned around now with the Mickey Head on the inside of my wrist and it is more comfortable. I'll have to twist my arm around to use the scanner though. I may have to think about using it on a lanyard or something.

I like the idea of the Magic Bands because it will be harder for me to lose it, but I thought the bands would be more comfortable. Greatwolf Lodge gives you RFID bands for your stay to open your doors and charge things, but they are the thinner disposable kinds. I love them though because I don't notice them on me.
