Thank you!!! Hope you have a wonderful time as well. We'll be at AK on the 5th and then back in the evening to swim, relax, and get organized for the cruise the next day. We are getting very excited!

You don't need a card. Memory Maker is linked to your MagicBands.

Staying this weekend in a princess room for the first time! Excited to see what they look like since I've seen the regular rooms at POFQ and POR!

It was just nice knowing that there would be a cab ready at whatever time we needed. I was always very lucky at JUST missing the bus to wherever we needed to go last time

This time there will be 6 of us though and we don't think it's worth it if we have to take 2 cabs.

Thanks for any input!
We were there in March, and there were 2 families of 4. There are vans that are only supposed to accommodate 7, but 2 of our youngins were small, so they took all 8 of us. It really was very economical to use the taxi's. The taxi stand at the front of the lobby can get you a van! Enjoy!

You still need to pick up the memory maker at will call, and then link it to your magicbands. I know for sure there is a memory maker will call outside of magic Kingdom, but I'm not sure about the other parks. You cannot pick this up at the resort. Hope that helps!

Memory Maker is available if purchased in advance and online without going to pick up any physical card. It just has to be linked to the MagicBands on My Disney Experience in advance. It is pointless to buy MM when you arrive, as pictures do not appear in your MDE account until 3 days after purchase. Since op of the question is 10 days from arrival, it makes most sense to buy now online, save $50 and link everything in advance. There are FAQs for MM on the Disney website.

The confirmation email that I received stated that I need to pick up a card at WDW and then link it to my magic band. I ordered it months ago. They might do it different on more recent orders. I was hoping they had a will call either at POR or close by.

same here, I got an email saying I needed to go to will call. We tried the DTD location but it was a LONG line, so ended up doing it in animal kingdom.

Check your MDE and see if there is a number assigned to your MM purchase. If so, that is the number you need to link to your MagicBand. If you still want to go pick up a card from will call, you can. I'm just sharing info with you to help you avoid making an extra stop when it's not necessary. https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/fa...y-maker/start/

Were trying to decide between CSR and POR. The main reason we decided to look at another resort compared to CSR was because it was so spread out. But to me it looks like POR is even more spread out.

Were hoping to stay in a mansion building, in a standard room cause I could careless about the view. And as far as preferred I don't know if it's that worth it to me since were on a budget.

Is the distance as bad as it looks??

CSR is more spread out than POR. The way POR is laid out there isn't a single room there that would be as far out as any room in the Rancho section of CSR.

The Mansions section is a great location.
