See the HoJo Retro Rates here http://tinyurl.com/7n2thzo get a great deal on a hotel room and make sure to tell them MouseWait sent you!
Even if you add charging priveliges to your band your credit card info is not actually on the band. It's just linking information on disneys end that links the bands to the room. The charges go to your resort reservation. Then it's charged from the hotel to your card. So it should be pretty safe.
Think of this as an added perk. Use fp+ how it currently works and select passes that best fit in your plans. If then you can use additional passes great if not it's no great big loss. Shouldn't really effect people with a good touring plan much at all
Are you sure you can't get these at DL? I bought one there. But it was probably a year ago
We love typhoon lagoon. Go on the crusher gusher! And get doughnuts!
We went last June, it was busier but not horrible and I think with twice the time you will be fine and have more time to relax. Enjoy the pool and hit a water park or two
When I pack for wdw I take a variety of clothes and layer that way I am prepared. Also even if it's warm outside it will be heavily air conditioned inside
We took a cab it was about 26 each way through mears. With 4 of us that made sense cost wise
Technically it is not allowed to pool hop unless you are a dvc member
It's important to know though that they have recently decreased the number of paper fastpasses, so they are going more quickly. Also the plan is to eventually discontinue them, so while with a card style ticket you can now use them with magic bands that may change at any time.
I agree not pushy at all. We have bought twice now with 2 different dvc reps and both were helpful and not overly "sales-y" they laid out what the deal was, what our options were and then gave us plenty of time to talk and think about it. The first time we actually walked away. And ended up calling him back and signing paperwork. I would recommend going and talking to them if you are concidering signing up, they were very helpful.
The Harry potter area of universal is TINY. You can totally do it in a half day. I would recommend arriving early so you don't wait in line for forbidden journey forever. Use mears for transport, even if you take a cab. They were the most accurate fares from their online estimator
Another great site to check out for crowd predictions is easywdw.com. They are pretty accurate
We only got here yesterday but for us it hasn't been too crowded at all! We're loving it. Though the rain yesterday was pretty crazy we were soaked
Add me please! Thank you!
Can anyone confirm if the lounge is disney visa only or any chase card? Last year it was any chase card.
We get there Monday so I'm not overly excited about this. But I bought ponchos, so if rain it is we will face it head on
Depending on how close you are to your arrival date they will either mail them to you or have them for you at the resort. As soon as you have picked your bands and confirmed address (if far enough out) you're done
I for one am NOT excited about this
They are posted in the comments on the original Disney parks blog post
You can get more frequent service with dvc, but it costs extra. Yes the in suite washer dryer is super nice as well. We are not getting a 1br this trip for the first time in a while and I am going to miss having the ability to do laundry.
