Thanks, Robo. Somehow I missed that.

Hmmm...maybe. This is our first stay there, we're usually at the Poly, so I'm not familiar with what they do differently.

I wonder how they decide who to send them to?

BTW, for those with a magnet - is the FP+ day 60 days prior to check in? Can't find that info officially from Disney anywhere. I'm calculating our date to be December 30.
For my latest trip this past Thanksgiving I was able to book at 60 days. When I logged into MDE, there was a countdown and when that hit 60, I could book. I did not stay up late the night before so not sure if that happened at midnight eastern time or 6am it some other time. I just did it that morning. Which thankfully was a Sunday b/c it did take me awhile. I wanted my times in the afternoon but Disney doesn't let you initially pick your times. You have to choose and then go in and change them. I think it took me a couple hours to get it all how I wanted it and I had my parks/rides picked ahead of time. Good luck!

Nope. I've got a split stay in April between two DVC stays, and received a flash drive Friday. Only one though.

Yikes.

I bet there are a lot of people rethinking their job location right about now.

If you go to your PM folder, in the dropdown menu, there should be a "sent" folder and "deleted" folder. Do you have those?

You can click on the Private Messages underlined underneath the "welcome roomthreeseventeen" message in the upper right of any page to get to your PM folders.

I just can't fathom who thought that 3 days before the busiest time would be a good time to implement this.

Definitely Hug-a-AK-CM week.

I had a stick of CareFree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality.

I don't think there is a deleted folder. Once deleted they are gone.

The same people who thought it was a good idea to implement at all?

I think they honestly thought they'd be past this point already but couldn't delay until after the holiday.

For what it's worth, my friend staying at the Swan made FP reservations this morning for today for TSMM and Star Tours.
