    My DD's are 2 and 4 and call the royal rooms their castle lol! The fireworks and all the neat touches like the genie lamp water faucets and princess pictures really made it "real" for them! Now my girls are total princess lovers too so it might depend what your girls like:) we also have special gifts left each morning from a special princess or character with a little note of what they are doing that day and while they are in the bath at night new PJ's magically appear hehe:) we try and make it super magical while they still totally believe;)

    Yes you actually can. I have friends that just flew in on SWA and you get two free checked bags so they called in before they sent the packet out and then they got two for each person in their ME envelope.

    Definitely check into a Royal Room! We just stayed in one and thought it was totally worth it! My 6 year old LOVED it, and so did I. :thumbsup2

    When do the packets normally get mailed out? I am leaving in 40 days and have not received mine, but didn't expect it until closer to departure. I am just wondering if I should call...

    You should get it any day now. But I have seen them arrive between 25-40 days out.

    Thank you Andre! That makes me feel better :)
    I double checked the reservation and it says "adjoining" which is ok with us. Connecting is not necessary. Thanks again for the quick response. We are getting very excited about our first trip with my granddaughter princess:

    Since we're on the topic of ME, I called Disney on Tuesday with our flight info. (Called ME first, they told me to call Disney since the trip is so far out). My question is, am I supposed to be able to see my flight info in my reservations online? Cause nothing is there if I'm supposed to.

    Thanks for the response!!

    Last time they never arrived, but it was no issue for me since I ended up deciding to rent a car.

    For those of you who have used Garden grocer: Will they deliver the groceries to your room if you have the room number or must the delivery go through Bell Services?

    You must go through the hotel delivery system, the delivery companies and couriers can't take stuff to your room.

    Thanks got the feedback! I have been contemplating switching to a Royal room. I am hoping they offer free dining which would help offset the extra.

    I'm wondering if the coffee in Riverside Mill is now Joffrey's and if it's decent tasting :) I can always doctor it up with sweetener and cream if the food court coffee is icky.
