    Mobile Order - Gift/Reward Cards

    Am I doing it wrong or do I really have to enter the Digney Gift Card or Disney Rewards Card number every single time? Is there really no way to save it? I have a ton of money in GCs and on a rewards card and it seems that most quick service are mobile order only. It seems crazy that I can't...

    EEH Schedule

    So far, all posted weeks have Extended Evening Hours on Mondays for Epcot and Wednesdays for MK, except for our week. Our week, EEH is still on Monday for Epcot (1/31), but Friday (2/4) for MK. The weeks after ours go back to the M/W schedule. Anyone have any idea what might be going on in MK on...

    Apple Watch instead of Magic Band?

    I know that you can now use your phone or Apple Watch for park entry and other entitlements. Does anyone have first hand experience with using an Apple Watch instead of a Magic Band? My husband doesn't want a Magic Band at all, but it makes me nervous for him to only have his Apple Watch given...

    Trader Sam's Timing

    In all of our trips, we have never gone to Trader Sam's. We plan to visit in February and all 5 of us are over 21 and the 20-somethings want to try it. The plan is to have dinner at Citrico's and then head to TS via monorail for an after dinner tiki drink. They are open until midnight most...

    Magic Band Question

    I have never looked at Magic Bands at the parks. We have always pre-ordered. I know Disney is moving away from them to a large extent, but are there more available in the parks than online? The selections for pre-arrival and on Shop Disney are pretty limited and my 20-somethings still love them...

    Renting DVC Points

    I am looking at a trip in late January/early February 2022 with 5 adults (me, DH, DS24 & friend, and DS21). I am looking at a 2BR villa at Copper Creek. I have never stayed in any of the DVC resorts. WL is our favorite resort so CC is the obvious choice. I can't see pricing with Disney, yet, but...

    The Many Adventures of B and Jen

    Foreword I'm Jen, a 40-something mom of 3 grown-ish kids. B is my 21 (about to turn 22) year old son. We have been to Disney World many times with DH and B's siblings and have been going just the two of us each year while he has been in college. We typically go the first week of October, but had...

    Motion sickness: Smuggler's Run vs Star Tours

    Star Tours wrecks me and it's gotten worse for me over the years. Last time I tried it, I wasn't sure I was going to make it out without creating a mess. Never again. I can ride FoP (and love it!) mostly because the wind in my face helps, but I have to be mindful of my breathing and sometimes...

    FP+ for shows at DHS

    Our FP+ for Voyage of the Little Mermaid says: Arrive between: 10:05 AM - 10:20 AM Showtime: 10:25 AM - 10:42 AM I've never booked FP+ for one of the shows before (bc there has never before been only one ride in tier 2!!) If we don't use this and let it expire does it expire at 11:05 which is...

    Tell me about January/Marathon Weekend

    There is a 50/50 chance that we are going to need to push our October trip back to January due to some schedule issues for DS. We've mostly gone in February and October, though we have also been in June a couple times. If we make the switch we would go the week of Jan 5-11 (or 4-10). Though it's...

    Deluxe Resort Decision

    Wilderness Lodge is the only deluxe we've ever done. We love it and are scheduled there in October. With the new room discounts, we could stay at Boardwalk for the same money or Grand Floridian for $500 more. Contemporary Garden Wing is also same price, but I think we've ruled that out. What...

    Sunday Night Football Viewing

    We will be staying at Wilderness Lodge in October and DS21 would like to watch the Sunday Night Football game. I have worked the plan so we will have dinner at Whispering Canyon (his choice) at 6:30 and the game begins at 8:30. Do Geyser Point or Territory Lounge have TVs that might have the...

    There go my fall rope drops...

    Every day this fall MK and AK will have regular 8am opens with EMH from 7-8am and HS will have 9am-10pm park hours with 6-9am EMH. So my 9am rope drop plans for early October at MK and AK are out the window. To rope drop anything besides EPCOT will require us to get moving at 5am (HS) or 6am (MK...

    WL Room Preferences

    Okay, Wilderness Lodge people, we haven't stayed there since 2005 and then we stayed in a junior suite (now called Deluxe Room) that time. Since then, we've always stayed Value as we don't spend a ton of time at the resort. However, in October 2018, DS21 was waxing nostalgic about WL and since...

    FP+ if I have to drop a couple days

    We are going again in October. B wants to go a little longer this time, but it will depend on his schedule and the syllabi for his classes. He won't know for sure until school starts at about the 40 day mark. If I make a reservation for the entire length that we want to go and make my FP+ at 60...

    Minnie Vans

    Now that Minnie Vans are available from all resorts, do you still need a code to access them within the Lyft app or do they show up in the app automatically if you're on property? Also, do Lyft coupon codes apply to Minnie Vans? We will probably just take a regular Lyft for EMM, but I'm...

    B and Me

    We will undoubtedly change the plan on the fly. We will laugh every day so hard we cry. For ride photos we'll stage some silly poses. We will slow down at times to smell the roses. We will enjoy each day until it is done. Great times will be had by this mother and son! We go in one week...

    Change of Plan - Thoughts?

    So, I've had the plan for our trip set for weeks/months. I had it all figured out. I got the FP+ we want at the times we want. Fantastic! Then they announced Toy Story Land EMM, which I booked, but now I can't decide what to do with one of our mornings. Our current plan is below as are my...

    FP+ Availability Early October - my experience

    This morning was our FP day. Our dates are October 2-7. No availability for Slinky for 60+2, but it's 8:18am and there is still plenty of availability any time between 3:00 and 7:00 on 60+4. I was able to get FOP for 60+3 with limited timing options, but we wanted evening and got it. There is...

    FP+ Day on Friday!

    I know this has been asked before and I have seen many conflicting answers, so I am wondering if anyone has recent experience using two devices to book FP+ with only one MDE account. My plan is to do as I have always done and just be waiting to pounce at 7am, but if using two devices will work I...
