    We just booked this morning :) October 25th-31st at Boardwalk. It will be our first time staying there.. very excited! On the 31st we leave for our first Disney cruise. As excited as I am for that trip, I leave in 8 days for AKV so I'm a little preoccupied for the moment. It's always nice to know I WILL be back :cheer2:

    Ahhhh, ok... My trip isn't till end of May so we'll see if I get the flash drive too. I am sure they will not send any magic bands nor the flash drive until the trip is totally paid off. And I am cheating and waiting until the last minute to see if any discounts come out that I can get Disney to apply to my current reservations :)

    What BWV-type did you book? I can't offer BWV location advice, (but I could for BLT). I can tell you that OCI is very limiting, so make sure whatever you do request, call the WDTC and have your request(s) added to your reservation.

    Between the RFID mugs, TragicBands with both long and short range chips and now flash drives, maybe we'll just be taking virtual-'Holodeck' Disney vacations soon:sad2:

    And a big gobble, gobble to you and yours! I shall add you to the BWB and I will wait patiently until 2015 for your FWC review.

    Welcome to the thread and the DIS!

    Congratulations and I'll add you, too. All of your vacations sound wonderful! Have a great time at AKV and don't eat too many Zebra Domes.

    Would that be so bad? I'm imaging holodeck a la Star Trek. Whenever you need an escape, you just program in the Disney park of your choice and step inside. No airfare to deal with, no crowds and no bill at the end of your stay ;-)

    All Disney Vacation Club members staying at a Walt Disney World resort -- on a reservation booked using either points or cash -- can access the Top of the World Lounge in Bay Lake Tower nightly through December 29, 2014. The perk extends to members and others in their traveling party. At least one member must accompany the group and provide a Key to the World card or blue Disney Vacation Club member ID card to gain entrance. Walt Disney World transportation must be used to reach Bay Lake Tower. Parking is only permitted to guests staying at Disney's Contemporary Resort or Bay Lake Tower. Lounge access is not available on select blockout dates which currently includes December 30-31, 2013, and July 3-4, 2014. Top of the World Lounge features a full bar, limited menu of appetizers and seating for approximately 77 guests. An outdoor deck is also available to view the nightly Magic Kingdom fireworks. Lounge access and seating are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Admission begins at approximately 5:00pm nightly.

    :lmao: :rotfl: :lmao:

    Where do I get one and how much does it cost? :lmao:

    The view from the top of BLT is amazing and a wonderful place to watch Wishes or Hallowishes. Then, a short wait for the elevator to get to the ground floor, walk to MK, and bus back to BWV. There is a terrace to stand outside with a guard wall. I have enjoyed a nice beer out there, fireworks, and the music piped in numerous times.

    Not so thrilled about the lounge. We've been twice. There aren't many great views of Wishes given the seating. The service was abysmal. The glowing ice cubes were fun for the dds, but that was about it for inside the lounge.

    the hallways are pretty long. you could either request close to the elevators, or 2nd floor, so you wouldn't need an elevator to get to the lobby,

    "tragic bands" !!!!!:rotfl::rotfl2:


    the lounge itself is so-so. we only went in and ordered a drink to help keep it running. and tip the poor workers stuck there. we went outonto the observation deck for the fireworks.

    a lot of people just go up to the observation deck for the fireworks, which is well within your rights. since we have no kids with us we thought we would go up a bit early and sit at the bar for a cocktail , just to support it.

    Territory Lounge is my favorite little hiding place. I walked past it 5 times before finally going in. Been back a few hundred times since. :thumbsup2

    Anyone else having this issue?

    I am getting messages that I can customize my Magic Bands, but when I go to customize all I get for a choice of colors is gray, has this happened to anyone else? (I have tried on two of my home computers, my laptop, my smart phone within the Magic Experience App and all are the same result).

    :confused: Is there something that has to happen before I can choose a color? It's got a count down date for when the last day I can customize is and a warning stating that if I don't choose a color they will choose one for me :confused:

    Any help would be most appreciated!

    When is your trip? It may be too early still...I think the window to customize starts somewhere around 60 days out. They may have upped it to 90 days, but if it's any farther away than that, that is likely the reason.

    I noticed I had a link to customize Magic bands too, and the only option was gray...I am still 333 days out:rotfl:
