    I think you can do online checkin for multiple rooms, as long as you have all the reservation numbers connected to your My Disney Experience account.

    For Magic Bands and FastPass+, I believe each guest needs to have their own account set up in MDX - although all the others can authorise one person to do all the bookings for them.

    However things can change quite a lot during testing, so probably best to ask in the main thread on this subject: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3106339

    I got the magic bands ordered last night. I am the person authorized on all the names. Can not do fastpasses yet and we are at63 days so will try online when it gets to 60 days. But do you think we will get our requests by doing online or should we wait and do there????? I am so excited:cheer2:

    Any update on the fridge replacements? I did check the first page and the last update was Sept. 4th.

    Hoping they will all be replaced when we check in in 22 days!!!

    On the day of the MVMCP, we are going to relax at the pool. We are going to need lunch though. Most of my group is food snobs... Are we going to be able to find something decent at PORFQ or should we take the boat to DTD?

    POFQ only has the quick service, but still it is good. Regardless of what you decide I still recommend taking the boat to DTD as much as you can!

    You can get the menu for the food court on Allears.net. But there are good alternatives at dtd just depends on if you want to leave the pool for a couple of hours.

    A lot of guests prefer the food court over at Riverside - a very pleasant and easy walk. Maybe take a look at the menus on www.portorleans.org or www.allears.net.

    While going to DTD is always nice, it will take longer out of your pool time. :thumbsup2

    WE are planning on going the evening we do animal kingdom since that closes early. We may also go on check in day as the kids will be tired from early flight and we have an early res at chef mickeys for dinner.

    I like their menu better too. Has anyone ever tried the salads? Are they fresh? This is our first time at a moderate... So we aren't sure what to expect!

    I usually stay deluxe so understand your wondering....but have had a few stays at mods and even POP and have been fine at both POR and FQ food courts - everything is made fresh to order. My friends love the POR offerings and I remember one who especially liked the salads...but do not remember which ones...sorry.

    Maybe post the question on the POR unofficial thread?

    This works for us too

    Also, as we arrive only in the afternoon at MCO and get to POFQ about 6 in the evening on arrival day, DTD makes a perfect evening for us for a nice dinner, a bit of shopping and getting us in the Disney mood and doesn't 'waste' a day's park pass.

    When you found the dirty towel why didn't you just have them clean the room? Seems like it wild have been much simpler than moving over a dirty washcloth.
