Well hello to you! I agree with you about the hairdryer. Headed to the pool in 5 minutes after a hot day in Hollywood Studios with a heavy lunch at 50's Prime Time!

However as I said in my original reply, I think a river-view room in building 6 should work out really well for you (and asking for a river view is perfectly valid for a King Bed booking incidentally, it does not mean an upgrade). Somewhere like this:

Building 6 is also reasonably close for the main building and the bus stop, and not too far from the pool and the river ferry dock.

Thanks you.....I will read take a look and call tonight.

OK, so I know that I'm not getting Magic Bands since my check in is 2 days early. But I do have another question - will I be able to schedule FP+ starting on the 30th? I don't want to link my tickets in MDE since I'm not getting the band and I don't trust the technology. But when I enter a park on the 30th, can I get an FP+? Anyone hear about that from another resort?

Yea....no clue. No response, so I have no idea! But I'm saying it.......I'm decorating!

I'd like to know the answer to this too. I talked to a cast member last night and she said we could request magic bands on the 30th. But we all know how reliable that information is. Guess we will just have to wait and see. 10 more days

Has anyone stayed with five family members in a room? DS 10months so he won't count towards occupancy. We stay here once, DD4 and DD1 and used the pack 'n' play, but I am wondering if anyone has done it with three kids? Kids will be DD7, DD4 and DS 10months.

I have thought about renting DVC to stay in a one bedroom but I honestly rather stay here. We always take a break in the middle of the day to come back and eat at the food court and rest a little before going to a different park. I also love the size of the resort.
