    Still hoping for a full set of menu pics from the food court if that's possible? Just quick cameraphone snaps of each of the menus in turn would be pefect (anything you can do - breakfast, lunch or dinner - would be great).

    Also the campfire area would be nice, I don't think we've seen a posting of what it looks like now?

    Have a great time!

    I'll do my best! I'm usually not around the resort during lunchtime, but tomorrow I might be able to do those after we check in. I've actually never been to the campfire, so I'll try to scope that out too.

    Normally, we head out during the late morning and don't come back until pretty late at night, but we don't usually go this time of year. I think the heat and humidity might change our plans a bit, so I'm thinking there's a better chance we'll be taking daytime breaks back at the resort or returning home a little earlier this time.

    No worries, anything you can get whenever you happen to be there would be great.

    They opened up November arrival dates for MB and FP+ yesterday, so it's worth trying again.

    I assume that fairly soon they'll start using the final rolling 60 day window, rather than setting specific test dates.

    We've been able to access the FP+ system up
    Until 11/30/13 and personalise our magic bands. It was very strange to make FP reservations for Soarin whilst sat having my breakfast!

    I did it a few weeks ago(not at breakfast) but so cool to be able to make FP+ before our trip. Now I keep trying to tweak the times but am pretty satisfied with what I have.would like to get MSEP if that opens up

    Looking forward to when they open up early December... Should I be reading up on how to use FP+ ahead of time? If so, where do I find that info, please? Thank you!

    Although not really looking forward to deciding which attraction we want and when for December a month or so out. Will there be any spontaneity left on a WDW trip? :confused3

    This FP+ feels complicated. :hippie:

    Not unless you have pre-booked and configured the Spontaneity add-on (*may be an extra charge) via MDE 160 exactly days in advance for each member of your party, for each day of your stay.

    :scared1: :rotfl: Me thinks I'd better schedule all future trips during the slowest possible week at WDW. Of course, that means taking DGD out of school...her mama would not be happy with that plan.:rolleyes1

    I hope you need pics or info when I'm there. I've lived on your website for a few years now and it's been an indescribably wonderful source of information (as well as a POFQ Addiction/withdrawal feeder) and I'd love to be able to 'give something back' :)

    Somehow the last couple of years you seem to have managed to go just before me and didn't need anything lol

    Thanks for the offers everyone. Photos and info updates are always very welcome, even if they just confirm that nothing has changed and everything is up to date. It's not so easy trying to make sure everything is accurate from 4,000 miles away. :(

    That, and I can live vicariously through other peoples photos of beignets etc. :)

    We are at POFQ at the end of November and not sure how the magic band and FP+ will work for us.

    We have booked through Virgin Holidays with park tickets and the free dining. Will we able to customise magic bands or is this just for people who book with disney.
    Also another query regarding park tickets are they automatically registered against the reservation so we can reserve fast passes

    Thanks for any help
