    The Aurasma pics are so cute. does it work anywhere else in the parks?

    Does anyone have an update as to what time people are lining up for the different activities if you have the package?

    We were at DHS yesterday. We did not do the package but here were our observations...

    Arrived at rope drop.

    We did not go to Oaken's right away. After two rides on TSMM, out at around 10 am, there was not line for Oaken's or the Funland. We did not go in but if this is on your list of must dos it doesn't look like getting in quickly would be an issue early in the day.

    Got tickets for the sing along around 11 am. They were giving out tickets for any time you wanted. I chose the 2:30 show but explained that it might not work out for us. The cast member was really nice and said if it was before the show time we could bring the tickets back for an exchange and choose another show time.

    We did see the parade. We waited by star tours. It was a great spot in the shade and I would recommend this viewing location. There were not a ton of people and no one was fighting for a spot. :)

    FYI the rain and thunderstorms are really picking up around here. Both the fireworks and 9:00 fantasmic were cancelled last night. Started with nonstop rain again today around 11 or so :(.

    Not that I'm aware of. But it does work on some everyday things like paper money.

    We found another app that is fun for Disney pictures. It's called Disney Memories HD. You can add borders, stickers, characters to your pictures.

    Thanks for sharing. I agree about viewing near Star Tours. You miss the snow and welcome on the stage, but in exchange it's shady and less crowded.

    I haven't had to add water to our pool all summer, so much rain.

    How early did you have to return for your 2:30 show time?

    I've been keeping up with a large part this thread and tried to search for answers so forgive me if this been repeated.

    I know to go to Min and Bill's at 10AM for check in.

    Where do I go, when should I get there and where should I stand for the welcome reception?

    Where do I go, when should I get there and where should I sit for the sing-a-long?

    Where do I go, when should I get there and where should I stand for the dessert party? Is the dessert party area the same as the fireworks view area?

    Am I missing anything?

    BTW I called and confirmed that the Fantasmic! package is only good for the earlier viewing contrary to the advice the CM gave me originally (it was all new then) so I cancelled my Fantasmic! package.

    When you get to Min and Bill's you'll see the queue is not actually at the counter service restaurant, but right in front of it across from the picnic tables. The line for the parade forms towards the stores and stays along the fence.

    They start letting people into the viewing area around 10am. People start lining up before that.

    If you can get a spot along the rope for the parade that would be nice. They take down the rope for the welcome on stage as soon as the parade passes. The viewing area begins to fill with regular guests as does the street.

    There is a return time on your package ticket. We returned during the first part of that window.

    The queue for sing-along is along the side of the theater across from the green umbrellas.

    They'll seat you somewhere in the first four rows of the center section.

    The queue for the dessert party seems to be starting around 7:30pm. They don't let you in until right after 8pm. The entrance is the same as the parade, but the line forms in the opposite direction for the desserts. Best place to stand would be a table where you can see both the sky and the stage.

    It it rains and the dessert is in Playhouse Disney, the queue is covered and once inside it's air conditioned. A table anywhere in there is fine. The cm escort guests to the firework viewing area if there will be fireworks.

    If it is not raining and the dessert part is outside do they still run the disney junior dance party on emh nights in the disney junior building?

    Robo's map shows that the fireworks can be viewed outside the park entrance, along the sidewalk that takes you back toward the Epcot area resorts. If so, can the music be heard as well? Obviously this question is geared to anyone that may have watched the show from this vantage point outside the park. Thanks!

    You won't be able to hear the music from that location. The spot is quite far from the DHS entrance and there aren't any speakers along the pathway. You could always play wdwmagic.com's fireworks video while watching from that vantage point... they included and synced in the stage portion, too.

    We are heading to Frozen Summer Fun on 7/30 and we are so excited!!! :yay: I'm curious how the supplies are holding out for merchandise? Have some items sold out? My son has been wanting a plush Oalf since Christmas and he will be devastated if they don't have them anymore. I thought I'd better ask here in case I need to prepare him. LOL

    Just booked the Pirate and Pals fireworks cruise for DD's bday...while on the phone the CM told me all days for the Frozen package are sold out. I know a PP mentioned this earlier. I can't believe they are sold out already..glad I got mine when they went on sale. I wonder how many tickets they allow per day?! :confused3

    First of all, thank you for this thread! It has helped us plan our studios day.

    I understand now at rope drop there is an opening show and areas are roped off until after show. We are going to be there early as son wants to do Jedi Training. Once we get in at rope drop, where should we head so that we can get to JTA sign-up asap (after show)? Do we head up to stage and hang towards the left?

    Thank you! :)

    Go down the walkway that is between the American Idol screen and Echo Lake. The Sound Studio/Sounds Dangerous building will be on your right after you pass the statue busts and the merchandise concession. If you make it to the Restroom area, you will have gone too far.

    What are the chances they'll still have the Elsa magic bands by the last day 9/1? Are they even keeping them in stock now?? :confused:

    The Frozen MagicBands are not a Limited Edition - they are open stock so they will still be stocking them as long as there is a demand for them. I'm sure after the Frozen event ends, they'll be found in other areas of the resort.

    On Monday, all the bands were in stock. They are open stock. Hopefully, they will continue to be in stock.
