    Yay so happy I found this thread. I just got magic bands and made my fastpasses for Oct 19-25. I didn't think POFQ was going to be included.

    Seriously? First of all, Andre's right - asking what kind of room request you should make without giving any indication of what's important to you is going to make it difficult for anyone to make a recommendation. Second, he did offer some suggestions for what might be nice for an anniversary trip.

    I knew (and posted) that POFQ was going to be included within a month or two from Riverside's start date (which was 3 Sept) but I haven't heard more anything officially as yet - hopefully later today.

    19 Oct is a Saturday, which seems an odd day to start - has anyone had any luck with any earlier dates (Monday would have been my best guess for a start day).

    seems like almost all the resorts were added for October, but not 1st week. I think I saw a 10/18 check in for FQ.

    And I am so bummed we did switch to POR to be a part of the test.... We thought, what the heck, may as well try it to have some Afternoon FP+ giving us some non rope drop days with guaranteed headliners and just deal with the bus stops and bigger resort size.... Grrrrrr!

    i had mentioned in an earlier post that i could not get my magic band to ship, it keep saying there was a problem with my address. i called through this morning and they told me that while i could customize it, they do not ship out side of the u.s. they will be ready to pick up at check in.
    guess i'll just have to wait and see them then. :)
