    Awesome!! Made me wish I could go back! What a wonderful adventure.

    Are they still giving out three FPs per day, good on any ride, or have they switched to the AAA kind?

    They gave 5 on day 1st day and 7 on the 2nd...(good on any ride).But with all the extra stuff and 12 hour days there was very little free time if you opted for all the optional stuff , Aladdin, Fantasmic, Parade viewing, Fireworks

    We used the "Max Ackerman" Technique and had every fast pass left at the end of the night...we gave them away to the few die hards that closed the park riding those attractions over and over again.

    Since so few attractions are fastpass compared to WDW, they could have given out 3 and it would have been sufficient.
    We rode Soarin 4 times and never gave up the fast pass.

    I too am wishing I was there.....I am holding off on the final piece of the blog
    cause when that is done and the photopass book is complete,and Stacia drawing are back from the frame shop, it really will be over. So sad:( :( :( :(

    One big word of CAUTION for anyone planning future Backstage Magic Adventures. Trip details change and you can set yourself up for disappointment if you think something is going to happen because it did on a previous trip. Our trip was a trip of a life time where Quinn and Michelle shared the magic but it differed in some areas if you compare to other trip reports. I love Quinn's smile. He so loves his life with Disney. We were so lucky to have the two of them guide our tour.

    Did anyone get a 10% off coupon to use within ten days of your adventure ending? I understand some folks have received this coupon (we did not).

    the coupon was either left in your room or in the brown envelope with the last set of pics that you might have received. I didn't know mine was there until I looked inside the envelope after I took the pics out.

    Barb; I watch the farewell video everyday and I still get misty eyed.

    BTW- guess who got to stay in the dream suite last week.
    I'll give you a hint....we both loved him, he's in his 30's and has a smile as big as life.
